Reasons For

4 Reasons For
Larger screen size Edit
The LG 43UF770 is a 43" TV. That's 3" larger than the Panasonic TX-40CX400 (40"). Read more

The display diagonal of a TV is the most common measure of screen size and is the distance from the top left to the bottom right of the visible part of a TV screen excluding any frame or border. One of the most important considerations when choosing the right screen size for your TV is the typical distance from which you will be viewing the screen. A good rule of thumb is to multiply the display diagonal by 2.5 to determine the viewing distance. So a 40 inch TV is best viewed from 100 inches away, which is equivalent to 8.3 feet or 2.54m. For home cinema setups and a truly immersive experience this ratio can be reduced to 1.2. This will give a screen size that fills 40 degrees of the viewer's field of vision. So if you viewing from a distance of 6ft (72 inches) you would need a TV display diagonal of 60 inches.

TVs with a bigger display diagonal allow you to make the most of HD content and are great for watching movies.

Thinner Edit
LG 43UF770 is 56.4mm thick, but the Panasonic TX-40CX400 is a 65mm thick TV (8.6mm 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.

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.

6 Reasons For
One more USB 2.0 port Edit

Four HDMI ports Edit
The Panasonic TX-40CX400 has four HDMI ports, however the LG 43UF770 only has three HDMI ports. Read more
