Reasons For

3 Reasons For
Larger screen size Edit
The Hisense H40M2600 has a screen size of 40", but the Sony KDL-32WD605 is only a 32" TV (8" 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.

Higher RMS rated power Edit
The Hisense H40M2600 is a 14W RMS rated power TV. That's 4W higher than the Sony KDL-32WD605 (10W). 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 Hisense H40M2600 has two RF ports, however the Sony KDL-32WD605 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.

4 Reasons For
Two USB 2.0 ports Edit
The Sony KDL-32WD605 is a two USB 2.0 port TV, whereas the Hisense H40M2600 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.

2x lower annual energy consumption Edit
The Sony KDL-32WD605 is a 51kWh annual energy consumption TV. That's 51.2kWh lower than the Hisense H40M2600 (51kWh). 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.

31% lighter Edit
The Sony KDL-32WD605 is a 4.9kg heavy TV. That's 1.5kg lighter than the Hisense H40M2600 (4.9kg). 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.

49% cheaper to run
The Sony KDL-32WD605 is £56.09 cheaper to run than the Hisense H40M2600 over five years. Read more
