Reasons For

Panasonic TX-32CS510 Philips 32PFT6500
1 Reason For
£71 Cheaper
The Panasonic TX-32CS510 costs £279.00, whereas the Philips 32PFT6500 is £349.99.
8 Reasons For
Faster Motion Interpolation Frequency
The Philips 32PFT6500 is a 500Hz motion interpolation frequency TV. That's 400Hz faster than the Panasonic TX-32CS510 (100Hz).

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
Local Dimming
The Philips 32PFT6500 features local dimming, whereas the Panasonic TX-32CS510 does not feature local dimming.

'Local Dimming' on a TV is a function that dims certain sections of the backlight to control the level of light/color intensity in a given part of the screen.

Local dimming can be used to make blacks on the screen appear darker and richer by removing the backlight behind them.

Read more Read less | Edit
Marginally Thinner
The Philips 32PFT6500 is a 64mm thick TV, whereas the Panasonic TX-32CS510 is a 69mm thick TV (5mm 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.

Read more Read less | Edit
