Reasons For

2 Reasons For
9" larger display diagonal Edit
The LG 49LH570 has a display diagonal of 49", whereas the Panasonic TX-40DX600 is only a 40" TV (9" 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.

46% cheaper to run
Over five years the LG 49LH570 only costs £60.73 to run but the Panasonic TX-40DX600 costs £112.00 to run (84% more). Read more
3 Reasons For
Significantly thinner Edit
The Panasonic TX-40DX600 is a 49mm thick TV, whereas the LG 49LH570 is an 81.5mm thick TV (32.5mm 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.

£16 cheaper
The Panasonic TX-40DX600 costs £389.00, whereas the LG 49LH570 is £405.00.
Available from 24 shops
