Reasons For

4 Reasons For
Faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The LG 50LF652 has a motion interpolation frequency of 900Hz, but the Panasonic TX-65CXW704 is only an 800Hz motion interpolation frequency TV (100Hz 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. 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.

Thinner Edit
LG 50LF652 is 54.5mm thick. That's 6.5mm thinner than the Panasonic TX-65CXW704 (61mm). 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.

53% cheaper to run
Over five years the LG 50LF652 only costs £112.39 to run but the Panasonic TX-65CXW704 costs £238.59 to run (112% more). Read more
Energy efficiency rating is better
The LG 50LF652 has an energy efficiency rating of "A+", however the Panasonic TX-65CXW704 has a rating of "A".
2 Reasons For
15" larger display diagonal Edit
The Panasonic TX-65CXW704 has a display diagonal of 65", whereas the LG 50LF652 is only a 50" TV (15" 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.

Local dimming Edit
The Panasonic TX-65CXW704 features local dimming, but the LG 50LF652 does not. Read more

This means that LEDs can be controlled individually (or in clusters) to control the level of light/color intensity in a given part of the screen.
