Reasons For

LG 49UH850 Panasonic TX-50CX700 Panasonic TX-50CX802 Samsung UE49KS7000
2 Reasons For
3D
The LG 49UH850 is a 3D TV (as are the Panasonic TX-50CX700 and the Panasonic TX-50CX802), however the Samsung UE49KS7000 is not 3D.

‘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.

20W Higher RMS Rated Power
The LG 49UH850 has an RMS rated power of 40W (as do the Panasonic TX-50CX802 and the Samsung UE49KS7000), whereas the Panasonic TX-50CX700 is only a 20W RMS rated power TV (20W lower).

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.

2 Reasons For
Larger Display Diagonal
The Panasonic TX-50CX700 is a 50" TV, and so does the Panasonic TX-50CX802. That's 1" larger than the LG 49UH850 and the Samsung UE49KS7000 (49").

‘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.

1" Larger Display Diagonal
The Panasonic TX-50CX802 has a display diagonal of 50" (as does the Panasonic TX-50CX700), whereas the LG 49UH850 and the Samsung UE49KS7000 are both only 49" TVs (1" smaller).

800Hz Faster High Frequency Rate
The Panasonic TX-50CX802 has a high frequency rate of 1,600Hz, however the Panasonic TX-50CX700 is only an 800Hz refresh rate TV (800Hz 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.

1,400Hz Faster Motion Interpolation Frequency
The Panasonic TX-50CX802 has a motion interpolation frequency of 1,600Hz, but the LG 49UH850 and the Samsung UE49KS7000 are both only 200Hz motion interpolation frequency TVs (1,400Hz slower) and the Panasonic TX-50CX700 is only an 800Hz motion interpolation frequency TV (800Hz slower).

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.

Read more Read less | Edit
50% Higher RMS Rated Power
The Panasonic TX-50CX802 is a 40W RMS rated power TV, and so do the LG 49UH850 and the Samsung UE49KS7000. That's 20W higher than the Panasonic TX-50CX700 (20W).

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.

Vastly Better User Reviews
The Panasonic TX-50CX802 has an average user review score of 100%, however the Samsung UE49KS7000 has an average rating of 79% (based on 46 reviews).
Better PC Advisor.co.uk Review Score
PC Advisor.co.uk gave the Panasonic TX-50CX802 a review score of 90%, whereas the Samsung UE49KS7000's rating was only 0% from the same site.
Better for Watching Sport
The Panasonic TX-50CX802 is better for watching sport than the LG 49UH850 and Panasonic TX-50CX700.
When ranking TVs for sport, we’ve concentrated primarily on the most important attributes. First off, we concentrate on the ‘motion interpolation frequency’. This is important for fast-moving spots, since it reduces the amount of blurring on screen. We also take the size of the screen into account - sports matches are far more immersive when viewed on a giant screen! Finally, we look at display brightness and display resolution, so that the games always appear as fully-detailed and bright.

Better for Playing Games
The Panasonic TX-50CX802 is better for playing games than the LG 49UH850, Panasonic TX-50CX700 and Samsung UE49KS7000.
When ranking TVs for games, we’ve concentrated on a number of key attributes: primarily ‘motion interpolation frequency’ and ‘high refresh rate’. Both connect to the quality of the image coming from the games console to the TV - both reduce instances of blurring caused by fast moving objects on the screen, and allow the image to appear more detailed and cleaner.

8 Reasons For
Higher RMS Rated Power
The Samsung UE49KS7000 is a 40W RMS rated power TV, and so do the LG 49UH850 and the Panasonic TX-50CX802. That's 20W higher than the Panasonic TX-50CX700 (20W).

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.

Read more Read less | Edit
Zero Point One More Loudspeakers
The Samsung UE49KS7000 has two point one loudspeakers, however the Panasonic TX-50CX802 only has two 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.

Read more Read less | Edit
Thinner
Samsung UE49KS7000 is 43.4mm thick. That's 8.1mm thinner than the LG 49UH850 (51.5mm) and 2.6mm thinner than the Panasonic TX-50CX700 and the Panasonic TX-50CX802 (46mm).

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.

Samsung TVs have an average rating of 90.8%, whereas LG has an average rating of 86.2% and Panasonic has an average rating of 51.9%.
Better Whathifi.com Review Score
The Samsung UE49KS7000 has a Whathifi.com review score of 100%, whereas the rating of the Panasonic TX-50CX700 was only 80% from the same site.
Better for Watching Films
The Samsung UE49KS7000 is better for watching films than the Panasonic TX-50CX700 and Panasonic TX-50CX802.
When ranking TVs for their suitability to display films, we’ve concentrated on several key attributes. These include contrast ratio and local dimming, which allow the dark colours on the screen to look deeper and richer - helpful for nighttime scenes. Also the screen resolution plays a part - 4K and higher resolutions mean that the image will be clearer and more detailed. Finally the size of the screen is also important - explosions and big dramatic reveals are so much more effective when you don’t have to squint to see the screen!

This is important for fast-moving spots, since it reduces the amount of blurring on screen. We also take the size of the screen into account - sports matches are far more immersive when viewed on a giant screen! Finally, we look at display brightness and display resolution, so that the games always appear as fully-detailed and bright.

Worse for Playing Games
The Panasonic TX-50CX700 is worse for playing games than the Panasonic TX-50CX802.
When ranking TVs for games, we’ve concentrated on a number of key attributes: primarily ‘motion interpolation frequency’ and ‘high refresh rate’. Both connect to the quality of the image coming from the games console to the TV - both reduce instances of blurring caused by fast moving objects on the screen, and allow the image to appear more detailed and cleaner.

7 Reasons Against
Zero Point One Less Loudspeakers
The Panasonic TX-50CX802 has two loudspeakers (as do the LG 49UH850 and the Panasonic TX-50CX700), however the Samsung UE49KS7000 only has two point one 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.

Thicker
Panasonic TX-50CX802 is 46mm thick, and so does the Panasonic TX-50CX700. That's 5.5mm thinner than the LG 49UH850 (51.5mm) and 2.6mm thicker than the Samsung UE49KS7000 (43.4mm).

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.

Older by Over One Year
The Panasonic TX-50CX802 is 15 months older than the LG 49UH850 and 11 months older than the Samsung UE49KS7000.
Expert Review Rating is Moderately Worse
The Panasonic TX-50CX802's average expert score is 90%, however the Samsung UE49KS7000's is 92% (based on 21 reviews).
Worse Brand
Panasonic TVs have an average rating of only 51.9%, whereas LG has an average rating of 86.2% and Samsung has an average rating of 90.8%.
Worse for Watching Films
The Panasonic TX-50CX802 is worse for watching films than the LG 49UH850, Panasonic TX-50CX700 and Samsung UE49KS7000.
When ranking TVs for their suitability to display films, we’ve concentrated on several key attributes. These include contrast ratio and local dimming, which allow the dark colours on the screen to look deeper and richer - helpful for nighttime scenes. Also the screen resolution plays a part - 4K and higher resolutions mean that the image will be clearer and more detailed. Finally the size of the screen is also important - explosions and big dramatic reveals are so much more effective when you don’t have to squint to see the screen!

6 Reasons Against
Moderately Smaller Display Diagonal
The Samsung UE49KS7000 has a display diagonal of 49" (as does the LG 49UH850), whereas the Panasonic TX-50CX700 and the Panasonic TX-50CX802 are both 50" TVs (1" larger).

‘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.

Not 3D
The Samsung UE49KS7000 is not 3D, however the LG 49UH850, the Panasonic TX-50CX700 and the Panasonic TX-50CX802 are 3D.

‘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.

7x Slower Motion Interpolation Frequency
The Samsung UE49KS7000 has a motion interpolation frequency of 200Hz (as does the LG 49UH850), but the Panasonic TX-50CX700 is an 800Hz motion interpolation frequency TV (600Hz faster) and the Panasonic TX-50CX802 is a 1,600Hz motion interpolation frequency TV (1,400Hz faster).

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.

Older by Four Months
The Samsung UE49KS7000 is four months older than the LG 49UH850.
User Review Rating is Vastly Worse

High Frequency Rate

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.

Thickness

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.

Running Costs Over 5 Years

TV running costs calculated based on an average of 5 hours of use per day. The running cost comprises the electricity cost when using the TV and the electricity standby cost. Compare all energy saving TVs.

Environmental Impact

We have calculated the amount of CO2 that will be generated by running each of these TVs for 5 years. We have then converted that into the number of tree seedlings that you would need to plant and grow for 10 years in order to offset that amount of CO2.
