Reasons For

5 Reasons For
Larger display diagonal Edit
The Grundig 40 VLE 4520 is a 40" TV. That's 8" larger than the LG 32LF5809 (32"). 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.

A lot higher RMS rated power Edit
The Grundig 40 VLE 4520 has an RMS rated power of 40W, however the LG 32LF5809 is only a 20W RMS rated power TV (20W 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.

24% thinner Edit
The Grundig 40 VLE 4520 has a depth of 45mm, however the LG 32LF5809 is a 55.5mm thick TV (10.5mm 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.

PC in (D-Sub) port Edit
The Grundig 40 VLE 4520 has a PC in (D-Sub) port, whereas the LG 32LF5809 does not. Read more

The socket (port) to receive input from a PC via a D-sub, which is a connector with a characteristic D-shaped metal shield. Also known as a VGA Port.

A D-sub port is needed to connect your TV to older devices and computers that use a VGA connection - generally those made before 2000.

Superior energy efficiency rating
The energy efficiency rating of the Grundig 40 VLE 4520 is "A", whereas the rating of the LG 32LF5809 is "A".
6 Reasons For
Hugely faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The LG 32LF5809 has a motion interpolation frequency of 400Hz, but the Grundig 40 VLE 4520 is only a 100Hz motion interpolation frequency TV (300Hz slower). 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.

Internet TV Edit
The LG 32LF5809 supports internet TV, but the Grundig 40 VLE 4520 does not support internet TV. Read more

Internet TVs allow you to access the internet directly through your TV. Connect your TV to your local network though WiFi or an ethernet cable.

Internet TVs let you watch movies and TV on the internet by connecting directly to services such as BBC iPlayer and YouTube without a computer.

Wi-Fi Edit
The LG 32LF5809 supports Wi-Fi, whereas the Grundig 40 VLE 4520 does not. Read more

A Wifi (wireless LAN connection) on your TV means that you can connect your TV directly to your WiFi network.

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 32LF5809 has an ethernet port, however the Grundig 40 VLE 4520 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.

34% cheaper to run
Over five years the LG 32LF5809 is £33.25 cheaper to run than the Grundig 40 VLE 4520. Read more
Energy efficiency rating is better
The LG 32LF5809 has an energy efficiency rating of "A", however the Grundig 40 VLE 4520 has a rating of "A".
