Reasons For

2 Reasons For
Local dimming Edit
The Panasonic TX-32CSW514 features local dimming, whereas the Samsung UE40JU6740 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.

Energy efficiency rating is higher
The Panasonic TX-32CSW514 has an energy efficiency rating of "A", but the Samsung UE40JU6740 has a rating of "A".
3 Reasons For
Larger display diagonal Edit
The Samsung UE40JU6740 has a display diagonal of 40", but the Panasonic TX-32CSW514 is only a 32" TV (8" smaller). Read more

‘Display Diagonal’ is the measure of the size of the TV screen from top-left to bottom-right corner, 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. TVs with a bigger display diagonal allow you to make the most of HD content and are great for watching movies. 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.

1,100Hz faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Samsung UE40JU6740 has a motion interpolation frequency of 1,200Hz, however the Panasonic TX-32CSW514 is only a 100Hz motion interpolation frequency TV (1,100Hz 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.

Energy efficiency rating is superior
The Samsung UE40JU6740 has an energy efficiency rating of "A", whereas the Panasonic TX-32CSW514 has a rating of "A".
