Reasons For

4 Reasons For
Two RF ports Edit
The LG 43LH570 is a two RF port TV, whereas the Samsung UE49K6300 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.

Vastly lighter Edit
The LG 43LH570 has a weight of 8.1kg, however the Samsung UE49K6300 is a 12.2kg heavy TV (4.1kg 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 £70
The LG 43LH570 costs £349.00, whereas the Samsung UE49K6300 is £419.00.
Hugely better expert reviews
Based on 1 expert review, the average review score of the LG 43LH570 is 85%, but the average rating of the Samsung UE49K6300 is 60% (based on 1 review).
4 Reasons For
6" larger screen size Edit
The Samsung UE49K6300 has a screen size of 49", whereas the LG 43LH570 is only a 43" TV (6" 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.

One more USB 2.0 port Edit
The Samsung UE49K6300 is a two USB 2.0 port TV, whereas the LG 43LH570 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 HDMI ports Edit
The Samsung UE49K6300 has three HDMI ports, however the LG 43LH570 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.

49 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.
