Reasons For

2 Reasons For
24W higher RMS rated power Edit
The Grundig 40 VLE 4520 has an RMS rated power of 40W, whereas the Toshiba 40H1533 is only a 16W RMS rated power TV (24W 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.

£1.94 cheaper to run
The Grundig 40 VLE 4520 is £1.94 cheaper to run than the Toshiba 40H1533 over five years. Read more
3 Reasons For
100Hz faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Toshiba 40H1533 has a motion interpolation frequency of 200Hz, whereas the Grundig 40 VLE 4520 is only a 100Hz motion interpolation frequency TV (100Hz 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.

A faster motion interpolation frequency will result in smoother action scenes, less motion blur and a more life like image.

Thinner Edit
The Toshiba 40H1533 is a 27mm thick TV. That's 18mm thinner than the Grundig 40 VLE 4520 (27mm). 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.

Energy efficiency rating is higher
The Toshiba 40H1533 has an energy efficiency rating of "A+", but the Grundig 40 VLE 4520 has a rating of "A".
