Reasons For

5 Reasons For
20% higher RMS rated power Edit
The LG 43LH5100 has an RMS rated power of 20W, however the Philips 43PUS6101 is only a 16W RMS rated power TV (4W lower). 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.

34% lower annual energy consumption Edit
The LG 43LH5100 is a 51kWh annual energy consumption TV. That's 17kWh lower than the Philips 43PUS6101 (68kWh). 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.

Lighter Edit
LG 43LH5100 is 7.8kg heavy. That's 1.5kg lighter than the Philips 43PUS6101 (9.3kg). 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.

The LG 43LH5100 is £19.23 cheaper to run than the Philips 43PUS6101 over five years. Read more
Superior energy efficiency rating
The energy efficiency rating of the LG 43LH5100 is "A++", whereas the rating of the Philips 43PUS6101 is "A+".
3 Reasons For
Two more USB 2.0 ports Edit
The Philips 43PUS6101 has three USB 2.0 ports, however the LG 43LH5100 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 Philips 43PUS6101 is four, but the LG 43LH5100 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.

6% thinner Edit
The Philips 43PUS6101 is a 77mm thick TV. That's 4.5mm thinner than the LG 43LH5100 (77mm). 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.
