Reasons For

1 Reason For
£10 cheaper
The Panasonic TX-40CX680 is £10.01 cheaper than the Panasonic TX-40DX700.
3 Reasons For
Faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Panasonic TX-40DX700 is a 1,400Hz motion interpolation frequency TV. That's 1,200Hz faster than the Panasonic TX-40CX680 (800Hz) and 600Hz faster than the Panasonic TX-49DX600 (800Hz). 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.

Significantly thinner Edit
The Panasonic TX-40DX700 is a 40mm thick TV, whereas the Panasonic TX-40CX680 is a 47mm thick TV (7mm thicker) and the Panasonic TX-49DX600 is a 66mm thick TV (26mm 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.

The more retailers stock this TV, the greater competition amongst retailers to keep prices low.
2 Reasons For
Larger display diagonal Edit
The Panasonic TX-49DX600 is a 49" TV. That's 9" larger than the Panasonic TX-40CX680 and the Panasonic TX-40DX700 (49"). 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.

Superior energy efficiency rating
The energy efficiency rating of the Panasonic TX-49DX600 is "A", whereas the rating of the Panasonic TX-40CX680 is "B" and the rating of the Panasonic TX-40DX700 is "B".
