Reasons For

3 Reasons For
75% faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Panasonic TX-49DX600 is an 800Hz motion interpolation frequency TV. That's 600Hz faster than the Samsung UE49KS8000 (200Hz). Read more

The motion interpolation frequency is the frame rate which the TV is able to artificially create by inserting additional frames into the picture between the frames included in the original video source. Motion interpolation technology can sometimes create some unwanted side effects such glitches when the technology suddenly activates during an action scene. Most modern TVs will have an option to switch off the motion interpolation if it is not desired.

A faster motion interpolation frequency will result in smoother action scenes, less motion blur and a more life like image.

Better energy efficiency rating
The energy efficiency rating of the Panasonic TX-49DX600 is "A", however the rating of the Samsung UE49KS8000 is "A".
5 Reasons For
Hugely higher RMS rated power Edit
The Samsung UE49KS8000 has an RMS rated power of 60W, but the Panasonic TX-49DX600 is only a 20W RMS rated power TV (40W lower). 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.

20.8mm thinner Edit
Samsung UE49KS8000 is 45.2mm thick, but the Panasonic TX-49DX600 is a 66mm thick TV (20.8mm 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.
