Reasons For

4 Reasons For
Larger screen size Edit
The Hisense H43M3000 is a 42.6" TV. That's 2.6" larger than the Sharp LC-40CFE5221 (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.

Faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Hisense H43M3000 is an 800Hz motion interpolation frequency TV. That's 600Hz faster than the Sharp LC-40CFE5221 (200Hz). 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.

One more HDMI port Edit
The Hisense H43M3000 has four HDMI ports, however the Sharp LC-40CFE5221 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.

WiFi connection Edit
The Hisense H43M3000 has a WiFi connection, whereas the Sharp LC-40CFE5221 does not have a WiFi connection. Read more

A Wifi (wireless LAN connection) on your TV means that you can connect your TV directly to your WiFi network.

Connecting your TV will be easier and you will not need any cables.

9 Reasons For
2W higher RMS rated power Edit
The Sharp LC-40CFE5221 is a 16W RMS rated power TV. That's 2W higher than the Hisense H43M3000 (16W). 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.

Hugely lower annual energy consumption Edit
The Sharp LC-40CFE5221 has an annual energy consumption of 66kWh, but the Hisense H43M3000 is a 160.6kWh annual energy consumption TV (94.6kWh higher). Read more
