Reasons For

5 Reasons For
40Hz faster high frequency rate Edit
LG 43LH604 is 100Hz refresh rate, but the Sharp LC-43CFE6131 is only a 60Hz refresh rate TV (40Hz slower). Read more

The refresh rate (also known as the high frequency rate) is the number of times that the image on the screen is refreshed per second. It affects how smoothly motion on the screen appears.

Action will appear smoother on TVs with a higher frequency rate: a TV with a high frequency rate of 30Hz refreshes the image on the screen once every 30 times every second. However a TV with a high frequency rate of 60Hz would refresh the image on the screen 60 times every second which means that action scenes would appear smoother.

4W higher RMS rated power Edit
The LG 43LH604 is a 20W RMS rated power TV. That's 4W higher than the Sharp LC-43CFE6131 (16W). 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.
