Reasons For

4 Reasons For
20W higher RMS rated power Edit
The LG 49UH850 has an RMS rated power of 40W (as do the Panasonic TX-50CX802 and the Samsung UE49KS7000), whereas the Panasonic TX-50CX700 is only a 20W RMS rated power TV (20W lower). Read more

RMS rated power stands for Root Mean Square rated power and it is typically used to measure the power output of the audio element of the TV.

A higher RMS rated power means that the audio system on the TV is more powerful and will be able to play the audio at higher volumes. A higher RMS power may also result in better quality audio at normal volume levels.

One more RF port Edit
The LG 49UH850 is a two RF port TV, whereas the Samsung UE49KS7000 only has one RF port. Read more

We do not know the number of RF ports on the Panasonic TX-50CX700 or the Panasonic TX-50CX802. It is possible that they do not have any RF ports.

RF stands for Radio Frequency and an RF port is an older type of input connector for TVs which is most commonly use for connecting cable TV and satellite TV feeds directly to the TV.

Multiple RF ports will allow you to connect multiple RF feeds to the TV at the same time. For example, if the TV has a built in satellite TV decoder then you could connect 2 different satellite dishes to the TV.

More popular
The LG 49UH850 is a more popular choice amongst buyers. It ranks No. 15290 by sales volume in our TVs, but the Panasonic TX-50CX700 ranks No. 15516, the Panasonic TX-50CX802 ranks No. 101630 and the Samsung UE49KS7000 ranks No. 16423.
Higher energy efficiency rating
The energy efficiency rating of the LG 49UH850 is "A", but the rating of the Panasonic TX-50CX700 is "A" and the rating of the Samsung UE49KS7000 is "A".
3 Reasons For
Larger screen size Edit
The Panasonic TX-50CX700 is a 50" TV, and so does the Panasonic TX-50CX802. That's 1" larger than the LG 49UH850 and the Samsung UE49KS7000 (49"). Read more

The display diagonal of a TV is the most common measure of screen size and is the distance from the top left to the bottom right of the visible part of a TV screen excluding any frame or border. One of the most important considerations when choosing the right screen size for your TV is the typical distance from which you will be viewing the screen. A good rule of thumb is to multiply the display diagonal by 2.5 to determine the viewing distance. So a 40 inch TV is best viewed from 100 inches away, which is equivalent to 8.3 feet or 2.54m. For home cinema setups and a truly immersive experience this ratio can be reduced to 1.2. This will give a screen size that fills 40 degrees of the viewer's field of vision. So if you viewing from a distance of 6ft (72 inches) you would need a TV display diagonal of 60 inches.

TVs with a bigger display diagonal allow you to make the most of HD content and are great for watching movies.

£26 cheaper
The Panasonic TX-50CX700 costs £315.00, whereas the LG 49UH850 is £900.00, the Panasonic TX-50CX802 is £341.00 and the Samsung UE49KS7000 is £799.99.

800Hz faster refresh rate Edit
The Panasonic TX-50CX802 has a refresh rate of 1,600Hz, however the Panasonic TX-50CX700 is only an 800Hz refresh rate TV (800Hz 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.

The high frequency rate is also known as the refresh rate and it affects how smooth motion on the screen appears. Action will appear smoother on TVs with a higher frequency rate.

1,400Hz faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Panasonic TX-50CX802 has a motion interpolation frequency of 1,600Hz, but the LG 49UH850 and the Samsung UE49KS7000 are both only 200Hz motion interpolation frequency TVs (1,400Hz slower) and the Panasonic TX-50CX700 is only an 800Hz motion interpolation frequency TV (800Hz slower). Read more

The motion interpolation frequency is the frame rate which the TV is able to artificially create by inserting additional frames into the picture between the frames included in the original video source. Motion interpolation technology can sometimes create some unwanted side effects such glitches when the technology suddenly activates during an action scene. Most modern TVs will have an option to switch off the motion interpolation if it is not desired.

A faster motion interpolation frequency will result in smoother action scenes, less motion blur and a more life like image.

50% higher RMS rated power Edit
The Panasonic TX-50CX802 is a 40W RMS rated power TV, and so do the LG 49UH850 and the Samsung UE49KS7000. That's 20W higher than the Panasonic TX-50CX700 (40W). Read more

The display diagonal of a TV is the most common measure of screen size and is the distance from the top left to the bottom right of the visible part of a TV screen excluding any frame or border. One of the most important considerations when choosing the right screen size for your TV is the typical distance from which you will be viewing the screen. A good rule of thumb is to multiply the display diagonal by 2.5 to determine the viewing distance. So a 40 inch TV is best viewed from 100 inches away, which is equivalent to 8.3 feet or 2.54m. For home cinema setups and a truly immersive experience this ratio can be reduced to 1.2. This will give a screen size that fills 40 degrees of the viewer's field of vision. So if you viewing from a distance of 6ft (72 inches) you would need a TV display diagonal of 60 inches.

TVs with a bigger display diagonal allow you to make the most of HD content and are great for watching movies.

7x slower motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Samsung UE49KS7000 has a motion interpolation frequency of 200Hz (as does the LG 49UH850), but the Panasonic TX-50CX700 is an 800Hz motion interpolation frequency TV (600Hz faster) and the Panasonic TX-50CX802 is a 1,600Hz motion interpolation frequency TV (1,400Hz faster). Read more

The motion interpolation frequency is the frame rate which the TV is able to artificially create by inserting additional frames into the picture between the frames included in the original video source. Motion interpolation technology can sometimes create some unwanted side effects such glitches when the technology suddenly activates during an action scene. Most modern TVs will have an option to switch off the motion interpolation if it is not desired.

A faster motion interpolation frequency will result in smoother action scenes, less motion blur and a more life like image.

Only one RF port Edit
The number of RF ports on the Samsung UE49KS7000 is one, but the LG 49UH850 only has two RF ports. Read more

We do not know the number of RF ports on the Panasonic TX-50CX700 or the Panasonic TX-50CX802. It is possible that they do not have any RF ports.

RF stands for Radio Frequency and an RF port is an older type of input connector for TVs which is most commonly use for connecting cable TV and satellite TV feeds directly to the TV.

Multiple RF ports will allow you to connect multiple RF feeds to the TV at the same time. For example, if the TV has a built in satellite TV decoder then you could connect 2 different satellite dishes to the TV.

More expensive by £485
The Samsung UE49KS7000 is £484.99 more expensive than the Panasonic TX-50CX700 and £458.99 more expensive than the Panasonic TX-50CX802.
Less popular
The Samsung UE49KS7000 is a less popular choice amongst buyers. It ranks No. 16423 by number of sales in our TVs, however the LG 49UH850 ranks No. 15290 and the Panasonic TX-50CX700 ranks No. 15516.
