Reasons For

LG 32LH604 Sharp LC-32CHE4042
5 Reasons For
Higher RMS Rated Power
The LG 32LH604 is a 20W RMS rated power TV. That's 12W higher than the Sharp LC-32CHE4042 (8W).

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.

Read more Read less | Edit
Wi-Fi
The LG 32LH604 supports Wi-Fi, whereas the Sharp LC-32CHE4042 does not.

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

A wifi connection means that connecting your TV to the net will be easier and can be done without cables.

Read more Read less | Edit
Thinner
LG 32LH604 is 72.2mm thick. That's 8.9mm thinner than the Sharp LC-32CHE4042 (81.1mm).

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.
