6 Reasons For
Larger screen size Edit
The Toshiba 40L1534 has a screen size of 40", but the Samsung HG32ED470 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.

17% brighter display brightness Edit
The Toshiba 40L1534 has a display brightness of 300 cd/m², however the Samsung HG32ED470 is only a 250 cd/m² display brightness TV (50 cd/m² dimmer).
38% higher RMS rated power Edit
The Toshiba 40L1534 is a 16W RMS rated power TV. That's 6W higher than the Samsung HG32ED470 (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 HDMI ports Edit
The Toshiba 40L1534 is a two HDMI port TV, whereas the Samsung HG32ED470 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.

Vastly thinner Edit
The Toshiba 40L1534 has a thickness of 27mm. That's 30.9mm thinner than the Samsung HG32ED470 (27mm). 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 Toshiba 40L1534 has an energy efficiency rating of "A+", whereas the Samsung HG32ED470 has a rating of "A+".
