Reasons For

4 Reasons For
3D Edit
The Panasonic TX-48CX400 is 3D, whereas the Samsung UE50JU6800 is not. Read more

‘3D’ describes whether the TV can display 3D movies and programmes. Requires compatible 3D glasses to properly function.

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

A lot faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Panasonic TX-48CX400 has a motion interpolation frequency of 200Hz, but the Samsung UE50JU6800 is only a 140Hz motion interpolation frequency TV (60Hz 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.

31% cheaper to run
Over five years the Panasonic TX-48CX400 is £46.86 cheaper to run than the Samsung UE50JU6800. Read more
Energy efficiency rating is better
The Panasonic TX-48CX400 has an energy efficiency rating of "A", however the Samsung UE50JU6800 has a rating of "A".
3 Reasons For
Larger display diagonal Edit
The Samsung UE50JU6800 is a 50" TV. That's 2" larger than the Panasonic TX-48CX400 (50"). 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.

Quite thinner Edit
The Samsung UE50JU6800 has a depth of 63.2mm, however the Panasonic TX-48CX400 is a 65mm thick TV (1.8mm 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.

Superior energy efficiency rating
The energy efficiency rating of the Samsung UE50JU6800 is "A", whereas the rating of the Panasonic TX-48CX400 is "A".

Reasons Against

The Panasonic TX-48CX400 has a display diagonal of 48", whereas the Samsung UE50JU6800 is a 50" TV (2" larger). Read more
