Reasons For

6 Reasons For
60Hz faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Panasonic TX-50CX680 has a motion interpolation frequency of 200Hz, but the Samsung UE50JU6800 is only a 140HzHz motion interpolation frequency TV (60Hz slower). 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.

11% lower annual energy consumption Edit
The Panasonic TX-50CX680 has an annual energy consumption of 117kWh, however the Samsung UE50JU6800 is a 129kWhkWh annual energy consumption TV (12kWh higher). Read more
