Reasons For

1 Reason For
Larger display diagonal Edit
The LG 65EG9609 is a 65" TV. That's 15" larger than the Panasonic TX-50CX802 (50"). 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.

4 Reasons For
Higher RMS rated power Edit
The Panasonic TX-50CX802 is a 40W RMS rated power TV. That's 20W higher than the LG 65EG9609 (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.

Card reader integrated Edit
The Panasonic TX-50CX802 has a card reader integrated, but the LG 65EG9609 does not have a card reader integrated. Read more

A card reader integrated into your TV allows it to receive and read memory and SD cards.

An integrated card reader means that you can use SD cards to store movies and programs, then play them on the TV direct from the SD card whenever you want.

9% thinner Edit
The Panasonic TX-50CX802 is a 46mm thick TV. That's 3.9mm thinner than the LG 65EG9609 (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.

Common interface (CI) slot Edit
The Panasonic TX-50CX802 has a common interface (CI) slot, but the LG 65EG9609 does not have a common interface (CI) slot. Read more

A common interface slot provides compatibility with pay-per-view cards.

A common interface slot allows you to install pay per view cards. For example Sky TV sell pay per cards for watching football and boxing and WWE Network sell cards for watching wrestling.
