Reasons For

2 Reasons For
200Hz faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Panasonic TX-40C300 has a motion interpolation frequency of 400Hz, but the Toshiba 40L1533 and the Toshiba 40L2436 are both only 200Hz motion interpolation frequency TVs (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.

Energy efficiency rating is better
The Panasonic TX-40C300 has an energy efficiency rating of "A+", however the Toshiba 40L1533 has a rating of "A+" and the Toshiba 40L2436 has a rating of "A+".
6 Reasons For
A little faster response time Edit
The Toshiba 40L1533 has a response time of 8ms, whereas the Toshiba 40L2436 is an 8.5ms response time TV (0.5ms slower). Read more

'Response Time' is the measure of how long it takes an individual pixel to move from active to inactive - therefore how fast it takes the TV to respond to the signal it's receiving and display it on the screen.

Slow response times on a TV mean that signals on fast moving images (such as video games or sports) could clash together, creating blurry images as several slightly different signals attempt to be displayed at once. A TV with faster response times can therefore display fast-moving images sharply and cleanly.

Wider horizontal viewing angle Edit
The Toshiba 40L1533 is a 178° horizontal viewing angle TV, and so does the Toshiba 40L2436. That's 2° wider than the Panasonic TX-40C300 (178°). Read more

The horizontal viewing angle dictates the maximum angle at which the TV screen can be properly viewed.

A larger viewing angle means that the TV can be watched from many different parts of a room successfully. Conversely, a very small viewing angle means you would effectively have to sit directly in front of the TV to be able to view the screen successfully.

2W higher RMS rated power Edit
The Toshiba 40L1533 has an RMS rated power of 16W, whereas the Toshiba 40L2436 is only a 14W RMS rated power TV (2W 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.

Two times thinner Edit
The Toshiba 40L1533 is a 27mm thick TV, whereas the Panasonic TX-40C300 is a 68mm thick TV (41mm thicker) and the Toshiba 40L2436 is a 67mm thick TV (40mm 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.

PC in (D-Sub) port Edit
The Toshiba 40L1533 has a PC in (D-Sub) port, and so does the Toshiba 40L2436, but the Panasonic TX-40C300 does not have a PC in (D-Sub) port. Read more

The socket (port) to receive input from a PC via a D-sub, which is a connector with a characteristic D-shaped metal shield. Also known as a VGA Port.

A D-sub port is needed to connect your TV to older devices and computers that use a VGA connection - generally those made before 2000.

Higher energy efficiency rating
The energy efficiency rating of the Toshiba 40L1533 is "A+", but the rating of the Panasonic TX-40C300 is "A+" and the rating of the Toshiba 40L2436 is "A+".
6 Reasons For
2% wider horizontal viewing angle Edit
The Toshiba 40L2436 is a 178° horizontal viewing angle TV, and so does the Toshiba 40L1533. That's 2° wider than the Panasonic TX-40C300 (178°). Read more

The horizontal viewing angle dictates the maximum angle at which the TV screen can be properly viewed.

A larger viewing angle means that the TV can be watched from many different parts of a room successfully. Conversely, a very small viewing angle means you would effectively have to sit directly in front of the TV to be able to view the screen successfully.

Common interface (CI) slot Edit
The Toshiba 40L2436 has a common interface (CI) slot, but the Toshiba 40L1533 does not have a common interface (CI) slot. Read more

A common interface slot provides compatibility with pay-per-view cards.

A common interface slot allows you to install pay per view cards. For example Sky TV sell pay per cards for watching football and boxing and WWE Network sell cards for watching wrestling.

PC in (D-Sub) port Edit
The Toshiba 40L2436 has a PC in (D-Sub) port, and so does the Toshiba 40L1533, but the Panasonic TX-40C300 does not. Read more

The socket (port) to receive input from a PC via a D-sub, which is a connector with a characteristic D-shaped metal shield. Also known as a VGA Port.

A D-sub port is needed to connect your TV to older devices and computers that use a VGA connection - generally those made before 2000.

£42.87 cheaper to run
The Toshiba 40L2436 only costs £61.12 to run over five years whereas the Panasonic TX-40C300 costs £103.99 to run (70% more) and the Toshiba 40L1533 costs £75.60 to run (24% more). Read more
Higher energy efficiency rating
The energy efficiency rating of the Toshiba 40L2436 is "A+", but the rating of the Panasonic TX-40C300 is "A+" and the rating of the Toshiba 40L1533 is "A+".
User reviews are a lot better
The Toshiba 40L2436 has an average user review score of 98% based on 8 reviews, but the Panasonic TX-40C300 has an average rating of 80% (based on 1 review) and the Toshiba 40L1533 has an average rating of 80% (based on 70 reviews).

Reasons Against

4 Reasons Against
2° narrower horizontal viewing angle Edit
The Panasonic TX-40C300 has a horizontal viewing angle of 176°, but the Toshiba 40L1533 and the Toshiba 40L2436 are both 178° horizontal viewing angle TVs (2° wider). Read more

The horizontal viewing angle dictates the maximum angle at which the TV screen can be properly viewed.
