Reasons For

4 Reasons For
Larger display diagonal Edit
The LG 49UF778 has a display diagonal of 49", but the Panasonic TX-40DX700 is only a 40" TV (9" smaller). 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.

19.18kWh lower annual energy consumption Edit
The LG 49UF778 has an annual energy consumption of 97.82kWh, whereas the Panasonic TX-40DX700 is a 117kWh annual energy consumption TV (19.18kWh higher). Read more

The annual energy consumption is the total amount of energy that the TV will use over the course of a whole year, given typical usage levels.

A lower annual energy consumption means that it will cost less each year for you to run your TV.

Cheaper to run by £28.45
Over five years the LG 49UF778 only costs £109.19 to run however the Panasonic TX-40DX700 costs £137.64 to run (26% more). Read more
Energy efficiency rating is superior
The LG 49UF778 has an energy efficiency rating of "A+", whereas the Panasonic TX-40DX700 has a rating of "B".
3 Reasons For
Common interface (CI) Edit

A lot thinner Edit
The Panasonic TX-40DX700 is a 40mm thick TV, whereas the LG 49UF778 is a 56.7mm thick TV (16.7mm 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.

22% lighter Edit
The Panasonic TX-40DX700 has a weight of 11.5kg. That's 2.5kg lighter than the LG 49UF778 (11.5kg). Read more

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.
