Reasons For

LG 32LH500 Panasonic TX-49DS500
4 Reasons For
Thinner
LG 32LH500 is 77mm thick. That's 3mm thinner than the Panasonic TX-49DS500 (80mm).

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.

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.

Better Brand
LG TVs have an average rating of 86.2%, whereas Panasonic has an average rating of 46.7%.
8 Reasons For
17" Larger Display Diagonal
The Panasonic TX-49DS500 has a display diagonal of 49", however the LG 32LH500 is only a 32" TV (17" smaller).

‘Display Diagonal’ is the measure of the size of the TV screen from top-left to bottom-right corner, 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. TVs with a bigger display diagonal allow you to make the most of HD content and are great for watching movies. 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.

40% Higher RMS Rated Power
The Panasonic TX-49DS500 is a 20W RMS rated power TV. That's 8W higher than the LG 32LH500 (12W).

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.
