Reasons For

LG 55UF850 Panasonic TX-55CX700
5 Reasons For
3.2mm Thinner
The LG 55UF850 has a thickness of 50.8mm, however the Panasonic TX-55CX700 is a 54mm thick TV (3.2mm thicker).

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.

Cheaper to Run by £56 Over Five Years

Better Brand
LG TVs have an average rating of 86.5%, but Panasonic has an average rating of 46.7%.
2 Reasons For
Significantly Faster High Frequency Rate
The Panasonic TX-55CX700 is an 800Hz refresh rate TV, whereas the LG 55UF850 is only a 200Hz refresh rate TV (600Hz 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.

LG has done solid work with the 65UF850V. It offers a strong picture performance and decent sound.We're also very pleased with the LG's app support, super-slick smart interface, and the versatile remote control. If you have £2500 to spend on a TV, t...

2015 saw a summer of love for Panasonic: four consecutive five-star review televisions between June and August, with one of those ? the TX-40CS520 ? grabbing our 2015 Award for a sub-£500 set. Ignoring the company's first-ever OLED (the TX-65CZ952B ...
