Reasons For

5 Reasons For
Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA) certified Edit
The LG 32LF592 has a Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA) certified, but the Panasonic TX-40C300 does not have a Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA) certified.
Wi-Fi Edit
The LG 32LF592 supports Wi-Fi, whereas the Panasonic TX-40C300 does not support Wi-Fi. Read more

A Wifi (wireless LAN connection) on your TV means that you can connect your TV directly to your WiFi network.

A wifi connection means that connecting your TV to the net will be easier and can be done without cables.

Ethernet port Edit
The LG 32LF592 has an ethernet port, however the Panasonic TX-40C300 does not. Read more

An ethernet port lets you connect the TV directly to your router with an ethernet cable.

An ethernet connection is more reliable than wifi and is useful if you do not have a wiki network or the wifi signal is weak. Depending on the speed of your wifi network and ethernet connection may be faster than wifi which means less buffering when streaming content to the TV.

Thinner Edit
LG 32LF592 is 55.5mm thick, but the Panasonic TX-40C300 is a 68mm thick TV (12.5mm 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.

40% cheaper to run
The LG 32LF592 only costs £62.72 to run over five years but the Panasonic TX-40C300 costs £103.99 to run (66% more). Read more
2 Reasons For
8" larger display diagonal Edit
The Panasonic TX-40C300 has a display diagonal of 40", whereas the LG 32LF592 is only a 32" TV (8" smaller). 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.

Energy efficiency rating is better
The Panasonic TX-40C300 has an energy efficiency rating of "A+", however the LG 32LF592 has a rating of "A".
