Reasons For

5 Reasons For
A lot higher RMS rated power Edit
The Hisense H40M3300 has an RMS rated power of 14W, but the LG 49LF5100 is only a 10W RMS rated power TV (4W 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.

Two USB 2.0 ports Edit
The Hisense H40M3300 is a two USB 2.0 port TV, whereas the LG 49LF5100 only has one USB 2.0 port. Read more

USB ports are useful for displaying on your TV photos / videos or playing music that is stored on USB key drives. The USB port can also be used for charging devices from your TV (as long as it's switched on), and for installing software updates on the TV.

More USB ports will allow you to connect more USB devices to the TV simultaneously without needing to continuous plug in and unplug cables.

Three more HDMI ports Edit
The Hisense H40M3300 has four HDMI ports, however the LG 49LF5100 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.

£1 cheaper
The Hisense H40M3300 costs £0.99 less than the LG 49LF5100.
Available from 10 shops
A greater number of stores increases the chances of this TV remaining in stock and also increases the price competition amongst retailers for the product.
4 Reasons For
Larger screen size Edit
The LG 49LF5100 has a screen size of 49", but the Hisense H40M3300 is only a 40" TV (9" 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.

26kWh lower annual energy consumption Edit
The LG 49LF5100 has an annual energy consumption of 66kWh, whereas the Hisense H40M3300 is a 92kWh annual energy consumption TV (26kWh 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.

7% thinner Edit
The LG 49LF5100 has a thickness of 81.5mm. That's 5.5mm thinner than the Hisense H40M3300 (81.5mm). 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.

Cheaper to run by £30.05
Over five years the LG 49LF5100 is £30.05 cheaper to run than the Hisense H40M3300. Read more
