Reasons For

3 Reasons For
24W higher RMS rated power Edit
The Grundig 40 VLE 4520 has an RMS rated power of 40W, whereas the Toshiba 40H1533 is only a 16W RMS rated power TV (24W lower). 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.

One more HDMI port Edit
The number of HDMI ports on the Grundig 40 VLE 4520 is three, but the Toshiba 40H1533 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.

£1.94 cheaper to run
The Grundig 40 VLE 4520 is £1.94 cheaper to run than the Toshiba 40H1533 over five years. Read more
4 Reasons For
100Hz faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Toshiba 40H1533 has a motion interpolation frequency of 200Hz, whereas the Grundig 40 VLE 4520 is only a 100Hz motion interpolation frequency TV (100Hz 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.

A lot lower annual energy consumption Edit
The Toshiba 40H1533 has an annual energy consumption of 67kWh, but the Grundig 40 VLE 4520 is an 88kWh annual energy consumption TV (21kWh 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.

Thinner Edit
The Toshiba 40H1533 is a 27mm thick TV. That's 18mm thinner than the Grundig 40 VLE 4520 (27mm). 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.

Energy efficiency rating is higher
The Toshiba 40H1533 has an energy efficiency rating of "A+", but the Grundig 40 VLE 4520 has a rating of "A".
