Reasons For

LG 32LF5610 Samsung UE32J5500
3 Reasons For
Thinner
LG 32LF5610 is 55.5mm thick, but the Samsung UE32J5500 is a 66.6mm thick TV (11.1mm thicker).

The thickness of a 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.

£78 Cheaper

8 Reasons For
A Lot Faster Motion Interpolation Frequency
The Samsung UE32J5500 has a motion interpolation frequency of 400Hz, whereas the LG 32LF5610 is only a 200Hz motion interpolation frequency TV (200Hz slower).
