Reasons For

2 Reasons For
Thinner Edit
Avtex L216DRS is 48.5mm thick, but the Panasonic TX-24CS500 is a 59mm thick TV (10.5mm 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.

Common interface (CI) slot Edit
The Avtex L216DRS has a common interface (CI) slot, however the Panasonic TX-24CS500 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.

5 Reasons For
5% larger display diagonal Edit
The Panasonic TX-24CS500 is a 24" TV. That's 1" larger than the Avtex L216DRS (24"). Read more

The display diagonal of a TV is the most common measure of screen size and is the distance from the top left to the bottom right of the visible part of a TV screen 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. 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.

TVs with a bigger display diagonal allow you to make the most of HD content and are great for watching movies.

Internet TV Edit
The Panasonic TX-24CS500 supports internet TV, whereas the Avtex L216DRS does not support internet TV. Read more

Internet TVs allow you to access the internet directly through your TV. Connect your TV to your local network though WiFi or an ethernet cable.

Wi-Fi Edit
The Panasonic TX-24CS500 supports Wi-Fi, however the Avtex L216DRS does not support Wi-Fi. Read more

A Wifi (wireless LAN connection) on your TV means that you can connect your TV directly to your WiFi network.

A wifi connection means that connecting your TV to the net will be easier and can be done without cables.

Ethernet port Edit
The Panasonic TX-24CS500 has an ethernet port, but the Avtex L216DRS 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.
