Reasons For

6 Reasons For
Marginally larger screen size Edit
The Hisense H43M3000 has a screen size of 42.6", but the Salora 40LED1500 is only a 40" TV (2.6" 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 RF ports Edit
The Hisense H43M3000 has two RF ports, however the Salora 40LED1500 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.

One more USB 2.0 port Edit
The number of USB 2.0 ports on the Hisense H43M3000 is two, but the Salora 40LED1500 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 Hisense H43M3000 is a four HDMI port TV, whereas the Salora 40LED1500 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.

4% thinner Edit
The Hisense H43M3000 has a thickness of 87mm. That's 3mm thinner than the Salora 40LED1500 (90mm). 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 superior
The Hisense H43M3000 has an energy efficiency rating of "A", whereas the Salora 40LED1500 has a rating of "A".
4 Reasons For
30% higher RMS rated power Edit
The Salora 40LED1500 is a 20W RMS rated power TV. That's 6W higher than the Hisense H43M3000 (20W). 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 Salora 40LED1500 has an annual energy consumption of 84kWh, but the Hisense H43M3000 is a 160.6kWh annual energy consumption TV (76.6kWh 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.

£80.27 cheaper to run
Over five years the Salora 40LED1500 only costs £99.03 to run whereas the Hisense H43M3000 costs £179.30 to run (81% more). Read more
Energy efficiency rating is higher
The Salora 40LED1500 has an energy efficiency rating of "A", but the Hisense H43M3000 has a rating of "A".
