Reasons For

1 Reason For
Vastly thinner Edit
The Samsung T22E390 has a depth of 49.6mm, however the Thomson 24HA4243 is a 75mm thick TV (25.4mm thicker). 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.

6 Reasons For
11% larger display diagonal Edit
The Thomson 24HA4243 has a display diagonal of 24", however the Samsung T22E390 is only a 21.5" TV (2.5" 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.

40 cd/m² brighter display brightness Edit
The Thomson 24HA4243 has a display brightness of 290 cd/m², whereas the Samsung T22E390 is only a 250 cd/m² display brightness TV (40 cd/m² dimmer). Read more

'Display Brightness' is a measure of how bright the screen on the TV is.

A brighter display means the screen will have a greater capacity for brightness. This can be useful in combating glare from the sun in very bright rooms, or for making the screen visible from further away.

Ethernet port Edit
The Thomson 24HA4243 has an ethernet port, but the Samsung T22E390 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.

Common interface (CI) slot Edit
The Thomson 24HA4243 has a common interface (CI) slot, but the Samsung T22E390 does not. Read more

A common interface slot provides compatibility with pay-per-view cards.

A common interface slot allows you to install pay per view cards. For example Sky TV sell pay per cards for watching football and boxing and WWE Network sell cards for watching wrestling.

£8.50 cheaper to run
Over five years the Thomson 24HA4243 only costs £41.40 to run whereas the Samsung T22E390 costs £49.90 to run (21% more). Read more
Energy efficiency rating is higher
The Thomson 24HA4243 has an energy efficiency rating of "A", but the Samsung T22E390 has a rating of "B".
