Reasons For

6 Reasons For
3" larger screen size Edit
The LG 43LH510 has a screen size of 43", however the Panasonic TX-40DX600 is only a 40" TV (3" 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.

Hugely lower annual energy consumption Edit
The LG 43LH510 has an annual energy consumption of 51kWh, but the Panasonic TX-40DX600 is a 95kWh annual energy consumption TV (44kWh 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.

Vastly lighter Edit
The LG 43LH510 has a weight of 7.8kg, however the Panasonic TX-40DX600 is a 12kg heavy TV (4.2kg 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.

Cheaper by £80
The LG 43LH510 costs £238.99, whereas the Panasonic TX-40DX600 is £319.40.
£54.09 cheaper to run
Over five years the LG 43LH510 only costs £57.91 to run whereas the Panasonic TX-40DX600 costs £112.00 to run (93% more). Read more
Energy efficiency rating is higher
The LG 43LH510 has an energy efficiency rating of "A++", but the Panasonic TX-40DX600 has a rating of "B".
6 Reasons For
Vastly faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Panasonic TX-40DX600 has a motion interpolation frequency of 800Hz, however the LG 43LH510 is only a 300Hz motion interpolation frequency TV (500Hz slower). 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.

Higher RMS rated power Edit
The Panasonic TX-40DX600 is a 20W RMS rated power TV. That's 10W higher than the LG 43LH510 (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.

Three HDMI ports Edit
The Panasonic TX-40DX600 is a three HDMI port TV, whereas the LG 43LH510 only has one HDMI port. 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.

67% thinner Edit
The Panasonic TX-40DX600 has a thickness of 49mm. That's 32.5mm thinner than the LG 43LH510 (49mm). 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.

41 shops are selling it
A greater number of shops increases the price competition amongst retailers for the product and also increases the chances of this TV remaining in stock.
Better selling
The Panasonic TX-40DX600 ranks No. 1931 by number of sales, whereas the LG 43LH510 ranks No. 150807.
