Reasons For

6 Reasons For
4W higher RMS rated power Edit
The LG 32LH604 is a 20W RMS rated power TV. That's 4W higher than the Philips 43PUH4900 (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.

Two RF ports Edit
The LG 32LH604 is a two RF port TV, whereas the Philips 43PUH4900 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.

Hugely lower annual energy consumption Edit
The LG 32LH604 has an annual energy consumption of 44kWh, but the Philips 43PUH4900 is a 96kWh annual energy consumption TV (52kWh 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 LG 32LH604 is a 72.2mm thick TV. That's 4.8mm thinner than the Philips 43PUH4900 (77mm). 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.

Vastly lighter Edit
The LG 32LH604 has a weight of 5.3kg, however the Philips 43PUH4900 is a 9.2kg heavy TV (3.9kg heavier). 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.

Energy efficiency rating is higher
The LG 32LH604 has an energy efficiency rating of "A+", but the Philips 43PUH4900 has a rating of "A".
1 Reason For
11" larger screen size Edit
The Philips 43PUH4900 has a screen size of 43", however the LG 32LH604 is only a 32" TV (11" 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.
