Reasons For

2 Reasons For
7% thinner Edit
Cello C16117 is 59mm thick. That's 3.9mm thinner than the Samsung HG28EC690 (62.9mm). Read more

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.

19% cheaper to run
Over five years the Cello C16117 is £8.01 cheaper to run than the Samsung HG28EC690. Read more
7 Reasons For
Larger display diagonal Edit
The Samsung HG28EC690 is a 28" TV. That's 12" larger than the Cello C16117 (28"). 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.

4W higher RMS rated power Edit
The Samsung HG28EC690 has an RMS rated power of 10W, however the Cello C16117 is only a 6W RMS rated power TV (4W 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.
