Reasons For

4 Reasons For
20% higher RMS rated power Edit
The LG 42LF561 has an RMS rated power of 20W (as do the LG 42LF5610 and the LG 43LH5100), however the Sharp LC-43CFE6131 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.

A lot thinner Edit
The LG 42LF561 has a thickness of 55.5mm (as does the LG 42LF5610), however the LG 43LH5100 is an 81.5mm thick TV (26mm thicker) and the Sharp LC-43CFE6131 is a 67.1mm thick TV (11.6mm 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.

Expert reviews are significantly better
Based on 2 expert reviews, the LG 42LF561 has an average review score of 82%, whereas the LG 43LH5100 has an average rating of 60% (based on 2 reviews).
User reviews are better
Based on 37 user reviews, the LG 42LF561 has an average review score of 94%, whereas the LG 42LF5610 has an average rating of 89% (based on 17 reviews).

9 Reasons For
Larger screen size Edit
The LG 43LH5100 is a 43" TV, and so does the Sharp LC-43CFE6131. That's 1" larger than the LG 42LF561 and the LG 42LF5610 (43"). 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.

Internet browser Edit
The LG 43LH5100 has an internet browser (as does the Sharp LC-43CFE6131), whereas the LG 42LF561 and the LG 42LF5610 do not have an internet browser. Read more

The Sharp LC-43CFE6131 is a 16W RMS rated power TV. That's 4W lower than the LG 42LF561, the LG 42LF5610 and the LG 43LH5100 (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.

Higher annual energy consumption Edit
The Sharp LC-43CFE6131 has an annual energy consumption of 60kWh, but the LG 42LF561 and the LG 42LF5610 are both 76kWh annual energy consumption TVs (16kWh higher) and the LG 43LH5100 is a 51kWh annual energy consumption TV (9kWh lower). 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.

11.6mm thicker Edit
The Sharp LC-43CFE6131 is a 67.1mm thick TV. That's 11.6mm thicker than the LG 42LF561 and the LG 42LF5610 (67.1mm) and 14.4mm thinner than the LG 43LH5100 (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.
