Reasons For

4 Reasons For
10" larger display diagonal Edit
The Grundig 65 VLE 6530 has a display diagonal of 65", whereas the Panasonic TX-55CSW524 is only a 55" TV (10" 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.

Moderately wider horizontal viewing angle Edit
The Grundig 65 VLE 6530 has a horizontal viewing angle of 178°, but the Panasonic TX-55CSW524 is only a 176° horizontal viewing angle TV (2° narrower). Read more

The horizontal viewing angle dictates the maximum angle at which the TV screen can be properly viewed.

A larger viewing angle means that the TV can be watched from many different parts of a room successfully. Conversely, a very small viewing angle means you would effectively have to sit directly in front of the TV to be able to view the screen successfully.

Higher RMS rated power Edit
The Grundig 65 VLE 6530 is a 60W RMS rated power TV. That's 40W higher than the Panasonic TX-55CSW524 (20W). 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.

PC in (D-Sub) port Edit
The Grundig 65 VLE 6530 has a PC in (D-Sub) port, however the Panasonic TX-55CSW524 does not have a PC in (D-Sub) port. Read more

The socket (port) to receive input from a PC via a D-sub, which is a connector with a characteristic D-shaped metal shield. Also known as a VGA Port.

A D-sub port is needed to connect your TV to older devices and computers that use a VGA connection - generally those made before 2000.

3 Reasons For
Ethernet port Edit
The Panasonic TX-55CSW524 has an ethernet port, however the Grundig 65 VLE 6530 does not. Read more

An ethernet port lets you connect the TV directly to your router with an ethernet cable.

An ethernet connection is more reliable than wifi and is useful if you do not have a wiki network or the wifi signal is weak. Depending on the speed of your wifi network and ethernet connection may be faster than wifi which means less buffering when streaming content to the TV.

Thinner Edit
Panasonic TX-55CSW524 is 56mm thick, but the Grundig 65 VLE 6530 is a 70mm thick TV (14mm thicker). 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.

Better energy efficiency rating
The energy efficiency rating of the Panasonic TX-55CSW524 is "A+", however the rating of the Grundig 65 VLE 6530 is "A".
