Reasons For

5 Reasons For
4W higher RMS rated power Edit
The LG 32LH604 is a 20W RMS rated power TV. That's 4W higher than the Philips 43PUH4900 (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.

Wi-Fi Edit
The LG 32LH604 supports Wi-Fi, however the Philips 43PUH4900 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 32LH604 has an ethernet port, but the Philips 43PUH4900 does not have an ethernet port. 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
The LG 32LH604 is a 72.2mm thick TV. That's 4.8mm thinner than the Philips 43PUH4900 (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.

Energy efficiency rating is higher
The LG 32LH604 has an energy efficiency rating of "A+", but the Philips 43PUH4900 has a rating of "A".
2 Reasons For
11" larger display diagonal Edit
The Philips 43PUH4900 has a display diagonal of 43", however the LG 32LH604 is only a 32" TV (11" smaller). Read more

‘Display Diagonal’ is the measure of the size of the TV screen from top-left to bottom-right corner, 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. TVs with a bigger display diagonal allow you to make the most of HD content and are great for watching movies. 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.

£47.59 cheaper to run
Over five years the Philips 43PUH4900 only costs £3.52 to run whereas the LG 32LH604 costs £51.11 to run (1352% more). Read more
