Reasons For

7 Reasons For
20% higher RMS rated power Edit
The LG 32LH604 has an RMS rated power of 20W, however the Philips 32PHK4101 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 LG 32LH604 supports Smart TV, whereas the Philips 32PHK4101 does not.
Wi-Fi Edit
The LG 32LH604 supports Wi-Fi, but the Philips 32PHK4101 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.

A wifi connection means that connecting your TV to the net will be easier and can be done without cables.

Ethernet port Edit
The LG 32LH604 has an ethernet port, whereas the Philips 32PHK4101 does not have an ethernet port. Read more

An ethernet port lets you connect the TV directly to your router with an ethernet cable.

An ethernet connection is more reliable than wifi and is useful if you do not have a wiki network or the wifi signal is weak. Depending on the speed of your wifi network and ethernet connection may be faster than wifi which means less buffering when streaming content to the TV.

Moderately thinner Edit
The LG 32LH604 has a depth of 72.2mm, however the Philips 32PHK4101 is a 77mm thick TV (4.8mm thicker). Read more

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.
