Reasons For

4 Reasons For
Larger screen size Edit
The LG 49LF632 is a 49" TV. That's 6" larger than the Samsung UE43J5500 (43"). 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 number of USB 2.0 ports on the LG 49LF632 is three, but the Samsung UE43J5500 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.

22% thinner Edit
The LG 49LF632 has a thickness of 55.1mm, however the Samsung UE43J5500 is a 66.9mm thick TV (11.8mm 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.

Superior energy efficiency rating
The energy efficiency rating of the LG 49LF632 is "A+", whereas the rating of the Samsung UE43J5500 is "A+".
5 Reasons For
One more RF port Edit
The number of RF ports on the Samsung UE43J5500 is two, but the LG 49LF632 only has one RF port. Read more

RF stands for Radio Frequency and an RF port is an older type of input connector for TVs which is most commonly use for connecting cable TV and satellite TV feeds directly to the TV.

Multiple RF ports will allow you to connect multiple RF feeds to the TV at the same time. For example, if the TV has a built in satellite TV decoder then you could connect 2 different satellite dishes to the TV.

12% lower annual energy consumption Edit
The Samsung UE43J5500 is a 71kWh annual energy consumption TV. That's 8kWh lower than the LG 49LF632 (71kWh). 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.

85% lighter Edit
The Samsung UE43J5500 is a 7.8kg heavy TV. That's 6.6kg lighter than the LG 49LF632 (7.8kg). 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.

5% cheaper to run
The Samsung UE43J5500 is £4.81 cheaper to run than the LG 49LF632 over five years. Read more
Better energy efficiency rating
The energy efficiency rating of the Samsung UE43J5500 is "A+", however the rating of the LG 49LF632 is "A+".
