Reasons For

6 Reasons For
Larger screen size Edit
The Panasonic TX-65CX410 has a screen size of 65", but the Samsung UE50JU6800 is only a 50" TV (15" smaller). 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.

3D compatible Edit
The Panasonic TX-65CX410 is 3D compatible, but the Samsung UE50JU6800 is not 3D compatible. Read more

3D technology has become increasingly popular as the amount of 3D film and TV content has increased dramatically in recent years. All 3D TVs will also display regular 2D content and most will allow you to switch on and off the 3D effect on 3D content. Most 3D TVs require you to wear special 3D glasses in order to view the content in 3D, however some of the newer 3D TVs require no 3D glasses at all. Of those TVs that do require glasses, there are two main types of 3D technology: passive and active. Passive 3D uses glasses similar to those that you wear in the cinema. The glasses have polarised lenses which ensure that the correct image is displayed to each eye. The main advantage of passive 3D is that the glasses are very light and comfortable to wear, but it can result in a less bright image. Active 3D uses battery powered glasses which control active shutters in each lens. These shutters constantly open and close very quickly in sync with two different images that are being displayed by the TV. This ensures that the correct image is displayed to each eye. The main advantage of active 3D is that the image is brighter, however the glasses are heavier and more expensive.

3D compatible TVs allow you to watch 3D content. For most TVs you will need to wear special glasses to see the 3D effect.

38.1cm larger visible diagonal screen size Edit
The Panasonic TX-65CX410 is a 165.1cm visible diagonal screen size TV. That's 38.1cm larger than the Samsung UE50JU6800 (127cm).
260Hz faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Panasonic TX-65CX410 has a motion interpolation frequency of 400Hz, however the Samsung UE50JU6800 is only a 140Hz motion interpolation frequency TV (260Hz 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.

4 shops are selling it
A greater number of sellers increases the price competition amongst retailers for the product and also increases the chances of this TV remaining in stock.
Energy efficiency rating is superior
The Panasonic TX-65CX410 has an energy efficiency rating of "A+", whereas the Samsung UE50JU6800 has a rating of "A".
8 Reasons For
Three more HDMI ports Edit
The Samsung UE50JU6800 is a four HDMI port TV, whereas the Panasonic TX-65CX410 only has one HDMI port. Read more

The HDMI ports quantity is the number of ports that the TV has that will accept a HDMI cable. HDMI is the most common type of cable used to connect modern TVs, DVD players, games consoles etc.

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.

Lower annual energy consumption Edit
The Samsung UE50JU6800 is a 129kWh annual energy consumption TV. That's 43kWh lower than the Panasonic TX-65CX410 (129kWh). Read more

1.8mm thinner Edit
The Samsung UE50JU6800 has a thickness of 63.2mm, however the Panasonic TX-65CX410 is a 65mm thick TV (1.8mm thicker). Read more
