Reasons For

2 Reasons For
Vastly faster high frequency rate Edit
The Panasonic TX-40CX680 has a high frequency rate of 200Hz, however the Philips 40PUH6400 is only a 60Hz refresh rate TV (140Hz slower). Read more

The refresh rate is also known as the high frequency rate and it affects how smooth motion on the screen appears. The high frequency rate is the number of times that the image on the screen is refreshed per second. A TV with a high frequency rate of 30Hz refreshes the image on the screen once every 30 times every second. A TV with a high frequency rate of 60Hz would refresh the image on the screen 60 times every second which means that action scenes would appear smoother.

The high frequency rate is also known as the refresh rate and it affects how smooth motion on the screen appears. Action will appear smoother on TVs with a higher frequency rate.

77% thinner Edit
Panasonic TX-40CX680 is 47mm thick. That's 36mm thinner than the Philips 40PUH6400 (83mm). 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.

2 Reasons For
Faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Philips 40PUH6400 is a 700Hz motion interpolation frequency TV. That's 500Hz faster than the Panasonic TX-40CX680 (700Hz). 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.

Better energy efficiency rating
The energy efficiency rating of the Philips 40PUH6400 is "A+", however the rating of the Panasonic TX-40CX680 is "B".

Reasons Against
