Reasons For

5 Reasons For
7% larger screen size Edit
The LG 43LF632 is a 43" TV. That's 3" larger than the Philips 40PFH5300 (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.

Three USB 2.0 ports Edit
The LG 43LF632 has three USB 2.0 ports, however the Philips 40PFH5300 only has two USB 2.0 ports. 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.

One more HDMI port Edit
The number of HDMI ports on the LG 43LF632 is three, but the Philips 40PFH5300 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.

32.9mm thinner Edit
The LG 43LF632 is a 55.1mm thick TV, whereas the Philips 40PFH5300 is an 88mm thick TV (32.9mm 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.

Higher energy efficiency rating
The energy efficiency rating of the LG 43LF632 is "A+", but the rating of the Philips 40PFH5300 is "A+".
5 Reasons For
Local dimming Edit
The Philips 40PFH5300 features local dimming, but the LG 43LF632 does not. Read more

This means that LEDs can be controlled individually (or in clusters) to control the level of light/color intensity in a given part of the screen.

25kWh lower annual energy consumption Edit
The Philips 40PFH5300 has an annual energy consumption of 51kWh, however the LG 43LF632 is a 76kWh annual energy consumption TV (25kWh higher). Read more

The annual energy consumption is the total amount of energy that the TV will use over the course of a whole year, given typical usage levels.

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

2.4kg lighter Edit
The Philips 40PFH5300 is a 7.8kg heavy TV, whereas the LG 43LF632 is a 10.2kg heavy TV (2.4kg heavier). Read more

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.

32% cheaper to run
Over five years the Philips 40PFH5300 is £27.24 cheaper to run than the LG 43LF632. Read more
Energy efficiency rating is better
The Philips 40PFH5300 has an energy efficiency rating of "A+", however the LG 43LF632 has a rating of "A+".
