Reasons For

5 Reasons For
Larger display diagonal Edit
The LG 65LX341 has a display diagonal of 64.53", but the Panasonic TX-55CX802 is only a 55" TV (9.53" 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.

2° wider horizontal viewing angle Edit
The LG 65LX341 has a horizontal viewing angle of 178°, however the Panasonic TX-55CX802 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.

Thinner Edit
The LG 65LX341 has a depth of 39mm. That's 15mm thinner than the Panasonic TX-55CX802 (54mm). 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.

Cheaper by £125
The LG 65LX341 is £125.03 cheaper than the Panasonic TX-55CX802.
1 shops are selling it
A greater number of sellers increases the price competition amongst retailers for the product and also increases the chances of this TV remaining in stock.
8 Reasons For
3D Edit
The Panasonic TX-55CX802 is 3D, but the LG 65LX341 is not. 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.

Built-in subwoofer Edit
The Panasonic TX-55CX802 has a built-in subwoofer, whereas the LG 65LX341 does not have a built-in subwoofer. Read more

A subwoofer is a specialised bass speaker for your TV, designed to provide punchy and powerful low notes for music and movies. Alternatively, an underground dog.

A built-in subwoofer will give your TV's sound system a serious boost on the low end bass notes. This will be best experienced in the bangs, thumps and explosions of movies, or in bass-heavy music.

Higher RMS rated power Edit
The Panasonic TX-55CX802 is a 40W RMS rated power TV. That's 20W higher than the LG 65LX341 (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.

Internet TV Edit
The Panasonic TX-55CX802 supports internet TV, however the LG 65LX341 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.

Card reader integrated Edit
The Panasonic TX-55CX802 has a card reader integrated, whereas the LG 65LX341 does not have a card reader integrated.
Wi-Fi Edit
The Panasonic TX-55CX802 supports Wi-Fi, but the LG 65LX341 does not. Read more

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

Ethernet port Edit
The Panasonic TX-55CX802 has an ethernet port, whereas the LG 65LX341 does not have an ethernet port. 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.

Common interface (CI) slot Edit
The Panasonic TX-55CX802 has a common interface (CI) slot, whereas the LG 65LX341 does not have a common interface (CI) slot. Read more

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