Reasons For

4 Reasons For
15" larger screen size Edit
The LG 47LN5404 has a screen size of 47", however the Toshiba 32BL502 is only a 32" TV (15" 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.

50Hz faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The LG 47LN5404 has a motion interpolation frequency of 100Hz, whereas the Toshiba 32BL502 is only a 50Hz motion interpolation frequency TV (50Hz 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.

40% higher RMS rated power Edit
The LG 47LN5404 is a 20W RMS rated power TV. That's 8W higher than the Toshiba 32BL502 (12W). 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.

Common interface connection Edit
The LG 47LN5404 has a common interface connection, but the Toshiba 32BL502 does not. Read more

A common interface slot provides compatibility with pay-per-view cards.

A common interface slot allows you to install pay per view cards. For example Sky TV sell pay per cards for watching football and boxing and WWE Network sell cards for watching wrestling.

4 Reasons For
PC in port Edit
The Toshiba 32BL502 has a PC in port, whereas the LG 47LN5404 does not have a PC in port. Read more

The socket (port) to receive input from a PC via a D-sub, which is a connector with a characteristic D-shaped metal shield.

2x thinner Edit
The Toshiba 32BL502 has a thickness of 40mm, however the LG 47LN5404 is an 80.5mm thick TV (40.5mm thicker). 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.

44% lighter Edit
Toshiba 32BL502 is 9.1kg heavy. That's 4kg lighter than the LG 47LN5404 (9.1kg). 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 to run by £45.76
The Toshiba 32BL502 is £45.76 cheaper to run than the LG 47LN5404 over five years. Read more
