Reasons For

4 Reasons For
Higher RMS rated power Edit
The Hisense H40M3300 is a 14W RMS rated power TV. That's 4W higher than the LG 43LH590 (10W). 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.

Cheaper by £55
The Hisense H40M3300 costs £315.00, whereas the LG 43LH590 is £369.98.
4 shops are selling it
The more shops stock the product, the greater competition amongst shops to keep prices low.
Better user reviews
The average user review score of the Hisense H40M3300 is 86%, but the average rating of the LG 43LH590 is 80% (based on 2 reviews).
4 Reasons For
3" larger display diagonal Edit
The LG 43LH590 has a display diagonal of 43", however the Hisense H40M3300 is only a 40" TV (3" 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.

Thinner Edit
The LG 43LH590 is an 81.5mm thick TV. That's 5.5mm thinner than the Hisense H40M3300 (81.5mm). 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.

£52.88 cheaper to run
Over five years the LG 43LH590 only costs £51.11 to run whereas the Hisense H40M3300 costs £103.99 to run (103% more). Read more
Energy efficiency rating is higher
The LG 43LH590 has an energy efficiency rating of "A++", but the Hisense H40M3300 has a rating of "A".
