Reasons For

7 Reasons For
9" larger screen size Edit
The LG 49LH5100 has a screen size of 49", whereas the Panasonic TX40DSW404 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.

13% lower annual energy consumption Edit
The LG 49LH5100 has an annual energy consumption of 57kWh, however the Panasonic TX40DSW404 is a 64kWh annual energy consumption TV (7kWh 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.

8% thinner Edit
LG 49LH5100 is 81.5mm thick. That's 6.5mm thinner than the Panasonic TX40DSW404 (88mm). 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.

20 shops are selling it
A greater number of shops increases the chances of the product remaining in stock and also increases the price competition amongst retailers for this TV.
18% cheaper to run

Energy efficiency rating is better
The LG 49LH5100 has an energy efficiency rating of "A++", however the Panasonic TX40DSW404 has a rating of "A+".
4 Reasons For
100Hz faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Panasonic TX40DSW404 has a motion interpolation frequency of 400Hz, whereas the LG 49LH5100 is only a 300Hz motion interpolation frequency TV (100Hz slower). Read more

The motion interpolation frequency is the frame rate which the TV is able to artificially create by inserting additional frames into the picture between the frames included in the original video source. Motion interpolation technology can sometimes create some unwanted side effects such glitches when the technology suddenly activates during an action scene. Most modern TVs will have an option to switch off the motion interpolation if it is not desired.

A faster motion interpolation frequency will result in smoother action scenes, less motion blur and a more life like image.

Higher RMS rated power Edit
The Panasonic TX40DSW404 is a 20W RMS rated power TV. That's 10W higher than the LG 49LH5100 (20W). 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 number of HDMI ports on the Panasonic TX40DSW404 is two, but the LG 49LH5100 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.

2.6kg lighter Edit
The Panasonic TX40DSW404 has a weight of 8kg, however the LG 49LH5100 is a 10.6kg heavy TV (2.6kg heavier). 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.
