Reasons For

1 Reason For
10% lighter Edit
Panasonic TX-50CX700 is 16.5kg heavy. That's 1.5kg lighter than the Panasonic TX-50CX802 (18kg). Read more

The weight is the total weight of the TV excluding all packaging.

A lighter weight TV will be easier to move around and to mount on a wall. Some of the larger, very heavy TVs may require lightweight partition walls to be reinforced before the TV could be mounted.

5 Reasons For
800Hz faster high frequency rate Edit
Panasonic TX-50CX802 is 1,600Hz refresh rate, but 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.

800Hz faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Panasonic TX-50CX802 has a motion interpolation frequency of 1,600Hz, whereas 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. That's 20W higher than the Panasonic TX-50CX700 (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.

Cheaper by £183
The Panasonic TX-50CX802 costs £789.00, whereas the Panasonic TX-50CX700 is £972.49.
