6 Reasons For
A lot faster refresh rate Edit
The Samsung UE49KU6100 has a refresh rate of 1,400Hz, whereas the Panasonic TX-49DX650 is only a 1,000Hz refresh rate TV (400Hz slower). Read more

The refresh rate is also known as the high frequency rate and it affects how smooth motion on the screen appears. The high frequency rate is the number of times that the image on the screen is refreshed per second. A TV with a high frequency rate of 30Hz refreshes the image on the screen once every 30 times every second. A TV with a high frequency rate of 60Hz would refresh the image on the screen 60 times every second which means that action scenes would appear smoother.

One more USB 2.0 port Edit
