5 Reasons For
Higher RMS rated power Edit
The Samsung HG40EE590 is a 20W RMS rated power TV. That's 8W higher than the Orion CLB40B962S (20W). 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.

Wi-Fi Edit

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

Connecting your TV will be easier and you will not need any cables.

Ethernet port Edit
The Samsung HG40EE590 has an ethernet port, but the Orion CLB40B962S 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.

17.8mm thinner Edit
The Samsung HG40EE590 is a 72.2mm thick TV. That's 17.8mm thinner than the Orion CLB40B962S (72.2mm). 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.

Common interface (CI) Edit
The Samsung HG40EE590 has a common interface (CI), but the Orion CLB40B962S does not have a common interface (CI). Read more
