Reasons For

7 Reasons For
40Hz faster refresh rate Edit
The LG 43LH604 has a refresh rate of 100Hz, but the Sharp LC-43CFE6131 is only a 60Hz refresh rate TV (40Hz slower). Read more

The refresh rate is also known as the high frequency rate and it affects how smooth motion on the screen appears. The high frequency rate is the number of times that the image on the screen is refreshed per second. A TV with a high frequency rate of 30Hz refreshes the image on the screen once every 30 times every second. A TV with a high frequency rate of 60Hz would refresh the image on the screen 60 times every second which means that action scenes would appear smoother.

The high frequency rate is also known as the refresh rate and it affects how smooth motion on the screen appears. Action will appear smoother on TVs with a higher frequency rate.

4W higher RMS rated power Edit
The LG 43LH604 is a 20W RMS rated power TV. That's 4W higher than the Sharp LC-43CFE6131 (16W). 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 RF ports Edit
The LG 43LH604 is a two RF port TV, whereas the Sharp LC-43CFE6131 only has one RF port. Read more

RF stands for Radio Frequency and an RF port is an older type of input connector for TVs which is most commonly use for connecting cable TV and satellite TV feeds directly to the TV.

Multiple RF ports will allow you to connect multiple RF feeds to the TV at the same time. For example, if the TV has a built in satellite TV decoder then you could connect 2 different satellite dishes to the TV.

Lower annual energy consumption Edit
The LG 43LH604 has an annual energy consumption of 51kWh, but the Sharp LC-43CFE6131 is a 60kWh annual energy consumption TV (9kWh 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.

24 shops are selling it
The more sellers stock the product, the greater competition amongst sellers to keep prices low.
£24.04 cheaper to run
Over five years the LG 43LH604 only costs £59.12 to run whereas the Sharp LC-43CFE6131 costs £83.16 to run (41% more). Read more
Energy efficiency rating is higher
The LG 43LH604 has an energy efficiency rating of "A++", but the Sharp LC-43CFE6131 has a rating of "A+".
5 Reasons For
Faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Sharp LC-43CFE6131 has a motion interpolation frequency of 200Hz, but the LG 43LH604 is only a unknownHz motion interpolation frequency TV (200Hz 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.

Brighter display brightness Edit
The Sharp LC-43CFE6131 has a display brightness of 300 cd/m², but the LG 43LH604 is only a unknown cd/m² display brightness TV (300 cd/m² dimmer).
Thinner Edit
Sharp LC-43CFE6131 is 67.1mm thick. That's 12.3mm thinner than the LG 43LH604 (67.1mm). 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.

1.5kg lighter Edit
The Sharp LC-43CFE6131 is a 7.8kg heavy TV, whereas the LG 43LH604 is a 9.3kg heavy TV (1.5kg 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 £21
The Sharp LC-43CFE6131 costs £20.90 less than the LG 43LH604.
