Reasons For

3 Reasons For
Eighteen more loudspeakers Edit
The number of loudspeakers on the LG 50UF830 is 20.00, but the Panasonic TX-50DX750 only has two loudspeakers. Read more

We do not know the number of loudspeakers on the LG 55UF860. It is possible that it does not have any loudspeakers.

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.

£41.27 cheaper to run
Over five years the LG 50UF830 is £41.27 cheaper to run than the Panasonic TX-50DX750. Read more
Energy efficiency rating is higher
The LG 50UF830 has an energy efficiency rating of "A+", but the LG 55UF860 has a rating of "A" and the Panasonic TX-50DX750 has a rating of "A".
2 Reasons For
5" larger display diagonal Edit
The LG 55UF860 has a display diagonal of 55", whereas the LG 50UF830 and the Panasonic TX-50DX750 are both only 50" TVs (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.

3D Edit
The LG 55UF860 is 3D, and so is the Panasonic TX-50DX750, whereas the LG 50UF830 is not 3D. Read more

3D technology has become increasingly popular as the amount of 3D film and TV content has increased dramatically in recent years. All 3D TVs will also display regular 2D content and most will allow you to switch on and off the 3D effect on 3D content. Most 3D TVs require you to wear special 3D glasses in order to view the content in 3D, however some of the newer 3D TVs require no 3D glasses at all. Of those TVs that do require glasses, there are two main types of 3D technology: passive and active. Passive 3D uses glasses similar to those that you wear in the cinema. The glasses have polarised lenses which ensure that the correct image is displayed to each eye. The main advantage of passive 3D is that the glasses are very light and comfortable to wear, but it can result in a less bright image. Active 3D uses battery powered glasses which control active shutters in each lens. These shutters constantly open and close very quickly in sync with two different images that are being displayed by the TV. This ensures that the correct image is displayed to each eye. The main advantage of active 3D is that the image is brighter, however the glasses are heavier and more expensive.

3D compatible TVs allow you to watch 3D content. For most TVs you will need to wear special glasses to see the 3D effect.

12% faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Panasonic TX-50DX750 has a motion interpolation frequency of 1,800Hz, however the LG 50UF830 is only a 1,600Hz motion interpolation frequency TV (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. 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% thinner Edit
The Panasonic TX-50DX750 has a depth of 40mm. That's 7.6mm thinner than the LG 50UF830 (40mm). 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.
