Reasons For

7.1mm thinner Edit
The LG 43UF671 is a 56.4mm thick TV. That's 7.1mm thinner than the Samsung UE48H6240 (63.5mm). 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.

800g lighter Edit
The LG 43UF671 has a weight of 10.5kg, however the Samsung UE48H6240 is an 11.3kg heavy TV (800g heavier). Read more

The weight is the total weight of the TV excluding all packaging.

A lighter weight TV will be easier to move around and to mount on a wall. Some of the larger, very heavy TVs may require lightweight partition walls to be reinforced before the TV could be mounted.

Energy efficiency rating is higher
The LG 43UF671 has an energy efficiency rating of "A+", but the Samsung UE48H6240 has a rating of "A+".
5 Reasons For
Larger display diagonal Edit
The Samsung UE48H6240 has a display diagonal of 48", but the LG 43UF671 is only a 43" TV (5" 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.

Two more USB 2.0 ports quantitys Edit

Four HDMI ports quantitys Edit

A greater number of HDMI ports will allow you to permanently connect more devices to the TV and will reduce the need to reach around the back of the TV to unplug and plug in cables when switching between devices.

19kWh lower annual energy consumption Edit
The Samsung UE48H6240 has an annual energy consumption of 82kWh, whereas the LG 43UF671 is a 101kWh annual energy consumption TV (19kWh higher). Read more
