Reasons For

3 Reasons For
20% thinner Edit
The LG 32LX330 has a depth of 55.88mm. That's 11.02mm thinner than the Samsung UE43J5500 (66.9mm). 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.

PC in (D-Sub) port Edit
The LG 32LX330 has a PC in (D-Sub) port, whereas the Samsung UE43J5500 does not have a PC in (D-Sub) port. Read more

The socket (port) to receive input from a PC via a D-sub, which is a connector with a characteristic D-shaped metal shield. Also known as a VGA Port.

A D-sub port is needed to connect your TV to older devices and computers that use a VGA connection - generally those made before 2000.

Cheaper to run by £24.43
Over five years the LG 32LX330 only costs £59.12 to run however the Samsung UE43J5500 costs £83.55 to run (41% more). Read more
3 Reasons For
26% larger display diagonal Edit
The Samsung UE43J5500 is a 43" TV. That's 11" larger than the LG 32LX330 (43"). 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.

Wi-Fi Edit
The Samsung UE43J5500 supports Wi-Fi, however the LG 32LX330 does not support Wi-Fi. Read more
