Reasons For

5 Reasons For
3D Edit
The Cello C42250 is 3D, whereas the Changhong LED50D3000 is not 3D. Read more

‘3D’ describes whether the TV can display 3D movies and programmes. Requires compatible 3D glasses to properly function.

3D technology has become increasingly popular as the amount of 3D film and TV content has increased dramatically in recent years. All 3D TVs will also display regular 2D content and most will allow you to switch on and off the 3D effect on 3D content. 3D compatible TVs allow you to watch 3D content. For most TVs you will need to wear special glasses to see the 3D effect.

Thinner Edit
Cello C42250 is 75mm thick. That's 12.9mm thinner than the Changhong LED50D3000 (87.9mm). 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 Cello C42250 has a common interface (CI) slot, however the Changhong LED50D3000 does not. 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.

19% cheaper to run
Over five years the Cello C42250 only costs £106.60 to run but the Changhong LED50D3000 costs £131.23 to run (23% more). Read more
Energy efficiency rating is better
The Cello C42250 has an energy efficiency rating of "A", however the Changhong LED50D3000 has a rating of "A".
4 Reasons For
16% larger display diagonal Edit
The Changhong LED50D3000 has a display diagonal of 49.5", however the Cello C42250 is only a 42" TV (7.5" 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.

30 cd/m² brighter display brightness Edit
The Changhong LED50D3000 has a display brightness of 280 cd/m², whereas the Cello C42250 is only a 250 cd/m² display brightness TV (30 cd/m² dimmer). Read more

'Display Brightness' is a measure of how bright the screen on the TV is.

A brighter display means the screen will have a greater capacity for brightness. This can be useful in combating glare from the sun in very bright rooms, or for making the screen visible from further away.

Wi-Fi Edit
The Changhong LED50D3000 supports Wi-Fi, however the Cello C42250 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.

Energy efficiency rating is higher
The Changhong LED50D3000 has an energy efficiency rating of "A", but the Cello C42250 has a rating of "A".
