Reasons For

5 Reasons For
Higher RMS rated power Edit
The LG 32LF580 is a 20W RMS rated power TV. That's 10W higher than the Samsung UE32J5200 (10W). Read more

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.

Two more USB 2.0 ports Edit
The number of USB 2.0 ports on the LG 32LF580 is three, but the Samsung UE32J5200 only has one USB 2.0 port. Read more

USB ports are useful for displaying on your TV photos / videos or playing music that is stored on USB key drives. The USB port can also be used for charging devices from your TV (as long as it's switched on), and for installing software updates on the TV.

More USB ports will allow you to connect more USB devices to the TV simultaneously without needing to continuous plug in and unplug cables.

Three HDMI ports Edit
The LG 32LF580 is a three HDMI port TV, whereas the Samsung UE32J5200 only has two HDMI ports. Read more

The HDMI ports quantity is the number of ports that the TV has that will accept a HDMI cable. HDMI is the most common type of cable used to connect modern TVs, DVD players, games consoles etc.

A greater number of HDMI ports will allow you to permanently connect more devices to the TV and will reduce the need to reach around the back of the TV to unplug and plug in cables when switching between devices.

25% thinner Edit
The LG 32LF580 has a thickness of 55.5mm. That's 13.5mm thinner than the Samsung UE32J5200 (69mm). 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.

Significantly better user reviews
The average user review score of the LG 32LF580 is 88%, whereas the average rating of the Samsung UE32J5200 is 40% (based on 2 reviews).
3 Reasons For
14kWh lower annual energy consumption Edit
The Samsung UE32J5200 has an annual energy consumption of 44kWh, but the LG 32LF580 is a 58kWh annual energy consumption TV (14kWh higher). Read more

A lower annual energy consumption means that it will cost less each year for you to run your TV.

2.3kg lighter Edit
The Samsung UE32J5200 has a weight of 3.9kg, however the LG 32LF580 is a 6.2kg heavy TV (2.3kg heavier). Read more
