A lower annual energy consumption means that it will cost less each year for you to run your TV.

A lot lower power consumption when switched off Edit

£180 cheaper
The Panasonic TX-40CS520 costs £280.00, whereas the Panasonic TX-40DX700 is £459.99.
Higher energy efficiency rating

7 Reasons For
1,300Hz faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Panasonic TX-40DX700 has a motion interpolation frequency of 1,400Hz, whereas the Panasonic TX-40CS520 is only a 100Hz motion interpolation frequency TV (1,300Hz 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.

One more USB 2.0 port Edit
The Panasonic TX-40DX700 has two USB 2.0 ports, however the Panasonic TX-40CS520 only has one USB 2.0 port. Read more

USB ports are useful for displaying on your TV photos / videos or playing music that is stored on USB key drives. The USB port can also be used for charging devices from your TV (as long as it's switched on), and for installing software updates on the TV.

More USB ports will allow you to connect more USB devices to the TV simultaneously without needing to continuous plug in and unplug cables.

Three HDMI ports Edit
The number of HDMI ports on the Panasonic TX-40DX700 is three, but the Panasonic TX-40CS520 only has two HDMI ports. Read more

A greater number of HDMI ports will allow you to permanently connect more devices to the TV and will reduce the need to reach around the back of the TV to unplug and plug in cables when switching between devices.

Local dimming Edit
The Panasonic TX-40DX700 features local dimming, whereas the Panasonic TX-40CS520 does not feature local dimming. Read more

This means that LEDs can be controlled individually (or in clusters) to control the level of light/color intensity in a given part of the screen.

7mm thinner Edit
The Panasonic TX-40DX700 is a 40mm thick TV. That's 7mm thinner than the Panasonic TX-40CS520 (40mm). Read more

The depth of the TV is the thickness of the TV measured from the back of the TV to the front of the TV. Curved TVs will have quite a big depth as this dimension is measured from the back of the centre of the screen to the front of the edges of the screen.

A thinner TV has the advantage of appearing more elegant and will also mean that the TV will not stick out as much when mounted on a wall.
