Reasons For

Panasonic TX-55CX802 Panasonic TX-55DX650
6 Reasons For
3D
The Panasonic TX-55CX802 is a 3D TV, whereas the Panasonic TX-55DX650 is not 3D.

‘3D’ describes whether the TV can display 3D movies and programmes. Requires compatible 3D glasses to properly function.

3D technology has become increasingly popular as the amount of 3D film and TV content has increased dramatically in recent years. All 3D TVs will also display regular 2D content and most will allow you to switch on and off the 3D effect on 3D content. 3D compatible TVs allow you to watch 3D content. For most TVs you will need to wear special glasses to see the 3D effect.

38% Faster High Frequency Rate
The Panasonic TX-55CX802 has a high frequency rate of 1,600Hz. That's 600Hz faster than the Panasonic TX-55DX650 (1,000Hz).

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
A Lot Higher RMS Rated Power
The Panasonic TX-55CX802 has an RMS rated power of 40W, but the Panasonic TX-55DX650 is only a 20W RMS rated power TV (20W lower).

RMS rated power stands for Root Mean Square rated power and it is typically used to measure the power output of the audio element of the TV.

A higher RMS rated power means that the audio system on the TV is more powerful and will be able to play the audio at higher volumes. A higher RMS power may also result in better quality audio at normal volume levels.

Read more Read less | Edit
Bluetooth
The Panasonic TX-55CX802 supports Bluetooth, but the Panasonic TX-55DX650 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.

Read more Read less | Edit
15mm Thinner
Panasonic TX-55CX802 is 54mm thick, but the Panasonic TX-55DX650 is a 69mm thick TV (15mm 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
Common Interface (CI) Slot
The Panasonic TX-55CX802 has a common interface (CI) slot, however the Panasonic TX-55DX650 does not have a common interface (CI) slot.

A common interface slot provides compatibility with pay-per-view cards.

A common interface slot allows you to install pay per view cards. For example Sky TV sell pay per cards for watching football and boxing and WWE Network sell cards for watching wrestling.
