Reasons For

2 Reasons For
3% larger display diagonal Edit
The LG 49LF5400 is a 49" TV. That's 1" larger than the Samsung UE48J5600 (48"). 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.

15% thinner Edit
The LG 49LF5400 has a depth of 58.7mm, however the Samsung UE48J5600 is a 67.1mm thick TV (8.4mm 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.

5 Reasons For
50% higher RMS rated power Edit
The Samsung UE48J5600 is a 20W RMS rated power TV. That's 10W higher than the LG 49LF5400 (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.

Smart TV Edit
The Samsung UE48J5600 supports Smart TV, but the LG 49LF5400 does not support Smart TV.
Internet TV Edit
The Samsung UE48J5600 supports internet TV, whereas the LG 49LF5400 does not. 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 Samsung UE48J5600 supports Wi-Fi, however the LG 49LF5400 does not support Wi-Fi. Read more

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

Ethernet port Edit
The Samsung UE48J5600 has an ethernet port, but the LG 49LF5400 does not have an ethernet port. Read more
