Reasons For

3 Reasons For
Larger display diagonal Edit
The Hitachi 43HBT42 is a 43" TV. That's 11" larger than the Samsung UE32J5200 (32"). 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.

6W higher RMS rated power Edit
The Hitachi 43HBT42 has an RMS rated power of 16W, whereas the Samsung UE32J5200 is only a 10W RMS rated power TV (6W 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.

Higher energy efficiency rating
The energy efficiency rating of the Hitachi 43HBT42 is "A+", but the rating of the Samsung UE32J5200 is "A+".
3 Reasons For
50% faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Samsung UE32J5200 is a 200Hz motion interpolation frequency TV. That's 100Hz faster than the Hitachi 43HBT42 (200Hz). Read more

The motion interpolation frequency is the frame rate which the TV is able to artificially create by inserting additional frames into the picture between the frames included in the original video source. Motion interpolation technology can sometimes create some unwanted side effects such glitches when the technology suddenly activates during an action scene. Most modern TVs will have an option to switch off the motion interpolation if it is not desired.

A faster motion interpolation frequency will result in smoother action scenes, less motion blur and a more life like image.

Wi-Fi Edit
The Samsung UE32J5200 supports Wi-Fi, but the Hitachi 43HBT42 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.

Connecting your TV will be easier and you will not need any cables.

Superior energy efficiency rating
The energy efficiency rating of the Samsung UE32J5200 is "A+", whereas the rating of the Hitachi 43HBT42 is "A+".
