4 Reasons For
8" larger screen size Edit
The Toshiba 40L1534 has a screen size of 40", whereas the Samsung HG32ED670 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.

Brighter display brightness Edit
The Toshiba 40L1534 has a display brightness of 300 cd/m², but the Samsung HG32ED670 is only a 250 cd/m² display brightness TV (50 cd/m² dimmer).
Thinner Edit
Toshiba 40L1534 is 27mm thick. That's 22.1mm thinner than the Samsung HG32ED670 (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 better
The Toshiba 40L1534 has an energy efficiency rating of "A+", however the Samsung HG32ED670 has a rating of "A+".
