Read more Read less
Higher Energy Efficiency Rating
The energy efficiency rating of the Panasonic TX-49DX650 is "A+", but the rating of the Samsung UE49KU6100 is "A".
4 Reasons For
A Lot Faster High Frequency Rate
The Samsung UE49KU6100 is a 1,400Hz refresh rate TV, whereas the Panasonic TX-49DX650 is only a 1,000Hz refresh rate TV (400Hz 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.

Read more Read less | Edit
Bluetooth
The Samsung UE49KU6100 supports Bluetooth, however the Panasonic TX-49DX650 does not support Bluetooth.

A Bluetooth connection on your TV means it can send and receive data from Bluetooth-enabled devices, such as headphones, mobile phones or remotes.

A Bluetooth connection on your phone allows you to use many newer wireless devices with your TV, such as wireless headphones and controlling your TV using your phone.

Better Brand
Samsung TVs have an average rating of 90.7%, but Panasonic has an average rating of 46.7%.
Better for Watching Films
The Samsung UE49KU6100 is better for watching films than the Panasonic TX-49DX650.
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!
