Reasons For

Panasonic TX-55CX700 Samsung UE55JU7000
1 Reason For
Thinner
Panasonic TX-55CX700 is 54mm thick, but the Samsung UE55JU7000 is a 67.4mm thick TV (13.4mm 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.
