£67 cheaper
The LG 43LH604 costs £67.45 less than the Philips 43PUS6401.
Available from 20 shops

4 Reasons For
One more USB 2.0 port Edit
The Philips 43PUS6401 has three USB 2.0 ports, however the LG 43LH604 only has two USB 2.0 ports. 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 43PUS6401 is four, but the LG 43LH604 only has three 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.

Two more processor cores Edit
The Philips 43PUS6401 is a four processor core TV, whereas the LG 43LH604 only has two processor cores.
4% thinner Edit
The Philips 43PUS6401 is a 77mm thick TV. That's 2.4mm thinner than the LG 43LH604 (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.
