Better for Watching Films
The Panasonic TX-40CX400 is better for watching films than the Panasonic TX-65CR852.
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!

4 Reasons For
A Lot Larger Display Diagonal
The Panasonic TX-65CR852 has a display diagonal of 65", however the Panasonic TX-40CX400 is only a 40" TV (25" 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.

Significantly Faster Motion Interpolation Frequency
The Panasonic TX-65CR852 has a motion interpolation frequency of 1,600Hz, whereas the Panasonic TX-40CX400 is only a 200Hz motion interpolation frequency TV (1,400Hz 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.

Better for Watching Sport
The Panasonic TX-65CR852 is better for watching sport than the Panasonic TX-40CX400.
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-65CR852 is better for playing games than the Panasonic TX-40CX400.
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.
