Reasons For

LG 42LF652 Samsung UE43J5500
6 Reasons For
3D
The LG 42LF652 is a 3D TV, but the Samsung UE43J5500 is not 3D.

‘3D’ describes whether the TV can display 3D movies and programmes. Requires compatible 3D glasses to properly function.

3D technology has become increasingly popular as the amount of 3D film and TV content has increased dramatically in recent years. All 3D TVs will also display regular 2D content and most will allow you to switch on and off the 3D effect on 3D content. 3D compatible TVs allow you to watch 3D content. For most TVs you will need to wear special glasses to see the 3D effect.

23% Thinner
The LG 42LF652 has a thickness of 54.5mm, however the Samsung UE43J5500 is a 66.9mm thick TV (12.4mm 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.

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.

User Reviews Are Better
Based on 100 reviews, the average user review score of the LG 42LF652 is 90%, whereas the average rating of the Samsung UE43J5500 is 82% (based on 115 reviews).
2 Reasons For
3% Larger Display Diagonal
The Samsung UE43J5500 is a 43" TV. That's 1" larger than the LG 42LF652 (42").

‘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.
