Reasons For

6 Reasons For
1.5ms faster response time Edit
The Samsung HG32ED670 has a response time of 6.5ms, whereas the Toshiba 40L1534 is an 8ms response time TV (1.5ms slower). Read more

'Response Time' is the measure of how long it takes an individual pixel to move from active to inactive - therefore how fast it takes the TV to respond to the signal it's receiving and display it on the screen.

Slow response times on a TV mean that signals on fast moving images (such as video games or sports) could clash together, creating blurry images as several slightly different signals attempt to be displayed at once. A TV with faster response times can therefore display fast-moving images sharply and cleanly.

4W higher RMS rated power Edit
The Samsung HG32ED670 has an RMS rated power of 20W, whereas the Toshiba 40L1534 is only a 16W RMS rated power TV (4W 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.

Smart TV Edit
The Samsung HG32ED670 supports Smart TV, but the Toshiba 40L1534 does not.
Common interface (CI) slot Edit
The Samsung HG32ED670 has a common interface (CI) slot, but the Toshiba 40L1534 does not have a common interface (CI) slot. Read more

A common interface slot provides compatibility with pay-per-view cards.

A common interface slot allows you to install pay per view cards. For example Sky TV sell pay per cards for watching football and boxing and WWE Network sell cards for watching wrestling.

£27.30 cheaper to run
The Samsung HG32ED670 is £27.30 cheaper to run than the Toshiba 40L1534 over five years. Read more
Higher energy efficiency rating
The energy efficiency rating of the Samsung HG32ED670 is "A+", but the rating of the Toshiba 40L1534 is "A+".
5 Reasons For
8" larger display diagonal Edit
The Toshiba 40L1534 has a display diagonal of 40", whereas the Samsung HG32ED670 is only a 32" TV (8" 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.

Brighter display brightness Edit
The Toshiba 40L1534 has a display brightness of 300 cd/m², but the Samsung HG32ED670 is only a 250 cd/m² display brightness TV (50 cd/m² dimmer). Read more

'Display Brightness' is a measure of how bright the screen on the TV is.

A brighter display means the screen will have a greater capacity for brightness. This can be useful in combating glare from the sun in very bright rooms, or for making the screen visible from further away.

2° wider horizontal viewing angle Edit
The Toshiba 40L1534 has a horizontal viewing angle of 178°, but the Samsung HG32ED670 is only a 176° horizontal viewing angle TV (2° narrower). Read more

The horizontal viewing angle dictates the maximum angle at which the TV screen can be properly viewed.

A larger viewing angle means that the TV can be watched from many different parts of a room successfully. Conversely, a very small viewing angle means you would effectively have to sit directly in front of the TV to be able to view the screen successfully.

Thinner Edit
Toshiba 40L1534 is 27mm thick. That's 22.1mm thinner than the Samsung HG32ED670 (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 better
The Toshiba 40L1534 has an energy efficiency rating of "A+", however the Samsung HG32ED670 has a rating of "A+".
