Reasons For

6 Reasons For
Two RF ports quantitys Edit
The LG 43UH661 is a two RF ports quantity TV, whereas the Samsung UE49K5510 only has one RF ports quantity. Read more

RF stands for Radio Frequency and an RF port is an older type of input connector for TVs which is most commonly use for connecting cable TV and satellite TV feeds directly to the TV.

Multiple RF ports will allow you to connect multiple RF feeds to the TV at the same time. For example, if the TV has a built in satellite TV decoder then you could connect 2 different satellite dishes to the TV.

Lower annual energy consumption Edit
The LG 43UH661 has an annual energy consumption of 76kWh, but the Samsung UE49K5510 is an 89kWh annual energy consumption TV (13kWh higher). Read more

The annual energy consumption is the total amount of energy that the TV will use over the course of a whole year, given typical usage levels.

A lower annual energy consumption means that it will cost less each year for you to run your TV.

3.5kg lighter Edit
The LG 43UH661 has a weight of 9.5kg, however the Samsung UE49K5510 is a 13kg heavy TV (3.5kg 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.

Cheaper by £73
The LG 43UH661 costs £335.00, whereas the Samsung UE49K5510 is £407.55.
Energy efficiency rating is higher
The LG 43UH661 has an energy efficiency rating of "A+", but the Samsung UE49K5510 has a rating of "A+".
Considerably better user reviews
The average user review score of the LG 43UH661 is 86% based on 43 reviews, but the average rating of the Samsung UE49K5510 is 70% (based on 14 reviews).
5 Reasons For
Larger display diagonal Edit
The Samsung UE49K5510 has a display diagonal of 49", but the LG 43UH661 is only a 43" TV (6" 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.

Thinner Edit
The Samsung UE49K5510 has a depth of 55.1mm. That's 22.1mm thinner than the LG 43UH661 (55.1mm). 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.
