Reasons For

3 Reasons For
3" larger display diagonal Edit
The LG 43UH661 has a display diagonal of 43", whereas the Samsung UE40KU6400 is only a 40" TV (3" 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.

16% cheaper to run
Over five years the LG 43UH661 only costs £85.15 to run but the Samsung UE40KU6400 costs £101.18 to run (19% more). Read more

7 Reasons For

A lot thinner Edit
The Samsung UE40KU6400 is a 54.6mm thick TV, whereas the LG 43UH661 is a 77.2mm thick TV (22.6mm thicker). Read more

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.
