5 Reasons For
Faster refresh rate Edit
The Panasonic TX-50CX700 is an 800HzHz refresh rate TV. That's 600Hz faster than the Panasonic TX-50CX680 (800HzHz). Read more

The refresh rate is also known as the high frequency rate and it affects how smooth motion on the screen appears. The high frequency rate is the number of times that the image on the screen is refreshed per second. A TV with a high frequency rate of 30Hz refreshes the image on the screen once every 30 times every second. 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.

The high frequency rate is also known as the refresh rate and it affects how smooth motion on the screen appears. Action will appear smoother on TVs with a higher frequency rate.

Faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Panasonic TX-50CX700 is an 800HzHz motion interpolation frequency TV. That's 600Hz faster than the Panasonic TX-50CX680 (800HzHz). Read more

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. Motion interpolation technology can sometimes create some unwanted side effects such glitches when the technology suddenly activates during an action scene. Most modern TVs will have an option to switch off the motion interpolation if it is not desired.

A faster motion interpolation frequency will result in smoother action scenes, less motion blur and a more life like image.

A little thinner Edit
The Panasonic TX-50CX700 has a thickness of 46mmmm, however the Panasonic TX-50CX680 is a 47mm thick TV (1mm thicker). Read more

The depth of the TV is the thickness of the 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.

The weight is the total weight of the TV excluding all packaging.

A lighter weight TV will be easier to move around and to mount on a wall. Some of the larger, very heavy TVs may require lightweight partition walls to be reinforced before the TV could be mounted.

Superior energy efficiency rating
The energy efficiency rating of the Panasonic TX-50CX700 is "A", whereas the rating of the Panasonic TX-50CX680 is "A".
