Reasons For

5 Reasons For
Faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The LG 50UF830 is a 1,600Hz motion interpolation frequency TV. That's 1,400Hz faster than the Panasonic TX-55CX680 (200Hz). 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.

20.00 loudspeakers Edit
The number of loudspeakers on the LG 50UF830 is 20.00, but the Panasonic TX-55CX680 only has two loudspeakers. Read more

The number of loudspeakers is the total number of speakers provided with the TV, either inside the TV casing or as external speakers.

A greater number of speakers will allow for better quality audio and different frequencies. Multiple external speakers will enable to the TV to play surround sound audio.

9.1mm thinner Edit
The LG 50UF830 is a 47.6mm thick TV, whereas the LG 55UF6809 is a 56.7mm thick TV (9.1mm thicker) and the Panasonic TX-55CX680 is a 56mm thick TV (8.4mm 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.

£95.75 cheaper to run
The LG 50UF830 is £17.63 cheaper to run than the LG 55UF6809 and £95.75 cheaper to run than the Panasonic TX-55CX680 over five years. Read more
Higher energy efficiency rating
The energy efficiency rating of the LG 50UF830 is "A+", but the rating of the LG 55UF6809 is "A+" and the rating of the Panasonic TX-55CX680 is "B".
3 Reasons For
5" larger display diagonal Edit
The LG 55UF6809 has a display diagonal of 55" (as does the Panasonic TX-55CX680), but the LG 50UF830 is only a 50" TV (5" 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.

50% higher RMS rated power Edit
The LG 55UF6809 is a 40W RMS rated power TV. That's 20W higher than the Panasonic TX-55CX680 (20W). 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.

Energy efficiency rating is superior
The LG 55UF6809 has an energy efficiency rating of "A+", whereas the LG 50UF830 has a rating of "A+" and the Panasonic TX-55CX680 has a rating of "B".
