Reasons For

6 Reasons For
Two RF ports Edit
The LG 32LF580 is a two RF port TV, and so does the Samsung UE32J5500, whereas the LG 32LF5800 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.

One more USB 2.0 port Edit
The LG 32LF580 has three USB 2.0 ports (as does the LG 32LF5800), however the Samsung UE32J5500 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.

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.

£5.03 cheaper to run
Over five years the LG 32LF580 only costs £64.10 to run whereas the LG 32LF5800 costs £65.93 to run (3% more) and the Samsung UE32J5500 costs £69.13 to run (8% more). Read more
