5 Reasons For
3D Edit
The Panasonic TX-50CX802 is 3D, however the Panasonic TX-50CX680 is not. Read more

‘3D’ describes whether the TV can display 3D movies and programmes. Requires compatible 3D glasses to properly function.

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

Hugely faster high frequency rate Edit
Panasonic TX-50CX802 is 1,600Hz refresh rate, but the Panasonic TX-50CX680 is only a 200Hz refresh rate TV (1,400Hz slower). Read more

The refresh rate (also known as the high frequency rate) is the number of times that the image on the screen is refreshed per second. It affects how smoothly motion on the screen appears.

Action will appear smoother on TVs with a higher frequency rate: a TV with a high frequency rate of 30Hz refreshes the image on the screen once every 30 times every second. However 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.

Significantly faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Panasonic TX-50CX802 has a motion interpolation frequency of 1,600Hz, whereas the Panasonic TX-50CX680 is only a 200Hz motion interpolation frequency TV (1,400Hz 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.

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

Higher RMS rated power Edit
The Panasonic TX-50CX802 is a 40W RMS rated power TV. That's 20W higher than the Panasonic TX-50CX680 (40W). 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.

3% thinner Edit
The Panasonic TX-50CX802 is a 46mm thick TV. That's 1mm thinner than the Panasonic TX-50CX680 (46mm). 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.

7x slower high frequency rate Edit

Vastly lower RMS rated power Edit
The Panasonic TX-50CX680 has an RMS rated power of 20W, however the Panasonic TX-50CX802 is a 40W RMS rated power TV (20W higher). 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.
