Reasons For

4 Reasons For
8" larger display diagonal Edit
The Panasonic TX-40C300 is a 40" TV, and so do the Panasonic TX-40DS400 and the Sony KDL-40R453. That's 8" larger than the Samsung UE32K5500 (40"). 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.

88% faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Panasonic TX-40C300 is a 400Hz motion interpolation frequency TV, and so does the Panasonic TX-40DS400. That's 350Hz faster than the Samsung UE32K5500 (100Hz) and 300Hz faster than the Sony KDL-40R453 (100Hz). 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.

£30 cheaper
The Panasonic TX-40C300 costs £80 less than the Panasonic TX-40DS400 and costs £30 less than the Sony KDL-40R453.
Better energy efficiency rating
The energy efficiency rating of the Panasonic TX-40C300 is "A+", however the rating of the Panasonic TX-40DS400 is "A+", the rating of the Samsung UE32K5500 is "A" and the rating of the Sony KDL-40R453 is "A".

4W higher RMS rated power Edit
The Panasonic TX-40DS400 has an RMS rated power of 20W (as does the Samsung UE32K5500), whereas the Sony KDL-40R453 is only a 16W RMS rated power TV (4W 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.

Internet TV Edit
The Panasonic TX-40DS400 supports internet TV (as does the Samsung UE32K5500), whereas the Sony KDL-40R453 does not support internet TV. Read more
