Reasons For

1 Reason For
7mm thinner Edit
The Panasonic TX-50CX670 is a 47mm thick TV, whereas the Panasonic TX-55CX802 is a 54mm thick TV (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.

4 Reasons For
Moderately larger display diagonal Edit
The Panasonic TX-55CX802 has a display diagonal of 55", whereas the Panasonic TX-50CX670 is only a 50" TV (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.

3D Edit
The Panasonic TX-55CX802 is 3D, whereas the Panasonic TX-50CX670 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.

Hugely faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Panasonic TX-55CX802 has a motion interpolation frequency of 1,600Hz, but the Panasonic TX-50CX670 is only a 400Hz motion interpolation frequency TV (1,200Hz slower). 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.

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

Higher RMS rated power Edit
The Panasonic TX-55CX802 is a 40W RMS rated power TV. That's 20W higher than the Panasonic TX-50CX670 (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.

Reasons Against

10% smaller display diagonal Edit
