Reasons For

LG 32LF580 Panasonic TX-40AX630
4 Reasons For
Thinner
LG 32LF580 is 55.5mm thick. That's 4.5mm thinner than the Panasonic TX-40AX630 (60mm).

The thickness of a 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.

58% Cheaper to Run Over Five Years
Over five years the LG 32LF580 only costs £38 to run but the Panasonic TX-40AX630 costs £91 to run (140% more).
Read more Read less
Energy Efficiency Rating is Better
The LG 32LF580 has an energy efficiency rating of "A", however the Panasonic TX-40AX630 has a rating of "B".
Better Brand
LG TVs have an average rating of 86.5%, whereas Panasonic has an average rating of 46.7%.
3 Reasons For
20% Larger Display Diagonal
The Panasonic TX-40AX630 has a display diagonal of 40", however the LG 32LF580 is only a 32" TV (8" smaller).

‘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.

3D
The Panasonic TX-40AX630 is 3D, however the LG 32LF580 is not.

‘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.

Read more Read less | Edit
Hugely Faster High Frequency Rate
Panasonic TX-40AX630 is 1,200Hz refresh rate, but the LG 32LF580 is only a 60Hz refresh rate TV (1,140Hz slower).

The refresh rate (also known as the high frequency rate) is the number of times that the image on the screen is refreshed per second. It affects how smoothly motion on the screen appears.

Action will appear smoother on TVs with a higher frequency rate: a TV with a high frequency rate of 30Hz refreshes the image on the screen once every 30 times every second. However 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.
