Reasons For

6 Reasons For
Higher RMS rated power Edit
The Hisense H43M3000 is a 14W RMS rated power TV. That's 4W higher than the LG 49LH541 (10W). 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.

One more USB 2.0 port Edit
The Hisense H43M3000 has two USB 2.0 ports, however the LG 49LH541 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.

Four HDMI ports Edit
The number of HDMI ports on the Hisense H43M3000 is four, but the LG 49LH541 only has two HDMI ports. 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.

3kg lighter Edit
The Hisense H43M3000 has a weight of 10.1kg, however the LG 49LH541 is a 13.1kg heavy TV (3kg 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.

Cheaper by £57
The Hisense H43M3000 costs £248.30, whereas the LG 49LH541 is £305.00.
Better selling
The Hisense H43M3000 ranks No. 2089 by number of sales, but the LG 49LH541 ranks No. 50842.
6 Reasons For
Larger screen size Edit
The LG 49LH541 has a screen size of 49", but the Hisense H43M3000 is only a 42.6" 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.

100.6kWh lower annual energy consumption Edit
The LG 49LH541 has an annual energy consumption of 60kWh, whereas the Hisense H43M3000 is a 160.6kWh annual energy consumption TV (100.6kWh 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.

Thinner Edit
The LG 49LH541 has a thickness of 39.9mm. That's 47.1mm thinner than the Hisense H43M3000 (39.9mm). 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.

10 shops are selling it
A greater number of sellers increases the price competition amongst retailers for the product and also increases the chances of this TV remaining in stock.
Cheaper to run by £111.77
Over five years the LG 49LH541 only costs £67.53 to run however the Hisense H43M3000 costs £179.30 to run (166% more). Read more
