Reasons For

3 Reasons For
Thinner Edit
LG 55EG920 is 48.9mm thick, but the Panasonic TX-55CX802 is a 54mm thick TV (5.1mm 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.

63% lighter Edit
The LG 55EG920 is a 12.6kg heavy TV. That's 7.9kg lighter than the Panasonic TX-55CX802 (20.5kg). 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.

Available from 5 shops
A greater number of retailers increases the chances of this TV remaining in stock and also increases the price competition amongst retailers for the product.
3 Reasons For
Hugely faster high frequency rate Edit
Panasonic TX-55CX802 is 1,600Hz refresh rate, but the LG 55EG920 is only a 100Hz refresh rate TV (1,500Hz 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.

Higher RMS rated power Edit
The Panasonic TX-55CX802 is a 40W RMS rated power TV. That's 20W higher than the LG 55EG920 (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 £510
The Panasonic TX-55CX802 costs £989.00, whereas the LG 55EG920 is £1,499.00.
