Reasons For

10 Reasons For
Larger screen size Edit
The Samsung UE43J5500 is a 43" TV. That's 11.5" larger than the Sencor SLE 3212M4 (31.5"). 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.

8W higher RMS rated power Edit
The Samsung UE43J5500 has an RMS rated power of 20W, however the Sencor SLE 3212M4 is only a 12W RMS rated power TV (8W lower). 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.

Common interface plus Edit
The Samsung UE43J5500 supports common interface plus, however the Sencor SLE 3212M4 does not.
WiFi connection Edit
The Samsung UE43J5500 has a WiFi connection, but the Sencor SLE 3212M4 does not have a WiFi connection. Read more

This means that LEDs can be controlled individually (or in clusters) to control the level of light/color intensity in a given part of the screen.

A lot thinner Edit
The Samsung UE43J5500 has a thickness of 66.9mm, however the Sencor SLE 3212M4 is a 95mm thick TV (28.1mm 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.
