Reasons For

2 Reasons For
12.9mm thinner Edit
The Reflexion LDD2271 has a thickness of 50mm, however the Samsung HG28ED690 is a 62.9mm thick TV (12.9mm thicker). 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.

Lighter Edit
Reflexion LDD2271 is 3.5kg heavy. That's 250g lighter than the Samsung HG28ED690 (3.7kg). 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.

13 Reasons For
23% larger screen size Edit
The Samsung HG28ED690 has a screen size of 28", however the Reflexion LDD2271 is only a 21.6" TV (6.4" 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.

1.5ms faster response time Edit
The Samsung HG28ED690 is a 6.5ms response time TV. That's 1.5ms faster than the Reflexion LDD2271 (6.5ms).
50 cd/m² brighter display brightness Edit

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.

Common interface connection Edit
