Reasons For

6 Reasons For
3D Edit
The LG 50LF652 is a 3D TV, however the Toshiba 50L2556 is not 3D. Read more

‘3D’ describes whether the TV can display 3D movies and programmes. Requires compatible 3D glasses to properly function.

3D technology has become increasingly popular as the amount of 3D film and TV content has increased dramatically in recent years. All 3D TVs will also display regular 2D content and most will allow you to switch on and off the 3D effect on 3D content. 3D compatible TVs allow you to watch 3D content. For most TVs you will need to wear special glasses to see the 3D effect.

Faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The LG 50LF652 is a 900Hz motion interpolation frequency TV. That's 700Hz faster than the Toshiba 50L2556 (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.

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

6W higher RMS rated power Edit
The LG 50LF652 has an RMS rated power of 20W, whereas the Toshiba 50L2556 is only a 14W 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.

Smart TV Edit
The LG 50LF652 supports Smart TV, but the Toshiba 50L2556 does not.
Wi-Fi Edit
The LG 50LF652 supports Wi-Fi, however the Toshiba 50L2556 does not support Wi-Fi. Read more

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 50LF652 has an ethernet port, but the Toshiba 50L2556 does not have an ethernet port. Read more

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