Reasons For

1 Reason For
Built-in camera Edit
The Panasonic TX-55AX900 has a built-in camera, but the Panasonic TX-58DX902 does not. Read more

Some new TVs have a built-in camera. This can be used for making video calls or for motion control which allows you to control the TV with your hands.

A camera on your TV allows you to use the TV for video chat services like Skype and may also allow you to control the TV using hand gestures.

4 Reasons For
6% larger display diagonal Edit
The Panasonic TX-58DX902 is a 58" TV. That's 3" larger than the Panasonic TX-55AX900 (58"). 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.

Hugely higher RMS rated power Edit
The Panasonic TX-58DX902 has an RMS rated power of 40W, but the Panasonic TX-55AX900 is only an 8W RMS rated power TV (32W 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.

56% cheaper to run
The Panasonic TX-58DX902 only costs £293.24 to run over five years but the Panasonic TX-55AX900 costs £662.02 to run (126% more). Read more
Better energy efficiency rating
The energy efficiency rating of the Panasonic TX-58DX902 is "B", however the rating of the Panasonic TX-55AX900 is "C".
