Reasons For

5 Reasons For
Lower annual energy consumption Edit
The LG 43LF6309 is a 76kWh annual energy consumption TV. That's 20kWh lower than the Samsung UE48JU7000 (96kWh). Read more

23% thinner Edit

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.

Lighter Edit
LG 43LF6309 is 10.2kg heavy. That's 900g lighter than the Samsung UE48JU7000 (11.1kg). 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.

Cheaper to run by £27.24
The LG 43LF6309 only costs £85.15 to run over five years however the Samsung UE48JU7000 costs £112.39 to run (32% more). Read more
Superior energy efficiency rating
The energy efficiency rating of the LG 43LF6309 is "A+", whereas the rating of the Samsung UE48JU7000 is "A".
4 Reasons For
Larger screen size Edit
The Samsung UE48JU7000 has a screen size of 48", but the LG 43LF6309 is only a 43" TV (5" smaller). 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.

Two more USB 2.0 ports Edit
The number of USB 2.0 ports on the Samsung UE48JU7000 is three, but the LG 43LF6309 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.

Four HDMI ports Edit
The Samsung UE48JU7000 is a four HDMI port TV, whereas the LG 43LF6309 only has three 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.

Considerably better user reviews
The average user review score of the Samsung UE48JU7000 is 93% based on 15 reviews, whereas the average rating of the LG 43LF6309 is 80% (based on 1 review).
