Reasons For

8 Reasons For

The LG 43LH604 is Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA) certified, but the Philips 43PUS6401 is not. Read more

The Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA) is a system that allows various computer technology products - from TVs to phones to games consoles - to all share data and media with each other over a home network, with a minimum of compatibility issues.

Wi-Fi Direct Edit

Wi-Fi Direct is a system to allow your TV to connect directly to other device without requiring a wireless router as a go-between.

Wi-Fi Direct is helpful on a TV because it allows a TV to connect to another device (such as a computer or phone) directly, meaning there is far less setup required - the devices just need to be 'paired' (normally at a press of a button) and the y can transfer data between each other. This is extremely useful for streaming media onto your TV from a computer or phone.
