Reasons For

LG 43LH590 LG 49LF590 Samsung UE40K5500
5 Reasons For
One More Loudspeaker
The number of loudspeakers on the LG 43LH590 is two (as does the Samsung UE40K5500), but the LG 49LF590 only has one loudspeaker.

The number of loudspeakers is the total number of speakers provided with the TV, either inside the TV casing or as external speakers.

A greater number of speakers will allow for better quality audio and different frequencies. Multiple external speakers will enable to the TV to play surround sound audio.

Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA) Certified
The LG 43LH590 is a Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA) certified TV (as is the Samsung UE40K5500), whereas the LG 49LF590 is not Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA) certified.

The Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA) is a system that allows various computer technology products - from TVs to phones to games consoles - to all share data and media with each other over a home network, with a minimum of compatibility issues.

A DLNA-certified TV will be able to receive, transfer & stream media from a wide variety of tech in your home, making sharing of media between devices far easier and more streamlined.

Cheaper by £30
The LG 43LH590 costs £319.95, whereas the Samsung UE40K5500 is £350.00.
£26 Cheaper to Run Over Five Years
Over five years the LG 43LH590 only costs £42 to run whereas the Samsung UE40K5500 costs £68 to run (62% more).

Energy Efficiency Rating is Higher
The LG 43LH590 has an energy efficiency rating of "A++", but the Samsung UE40K5500 has a rating of "A".
2 Reasons For
Larger Display Diagonal
The LG 49LF590 is a 49" TV. That's 6" larger than the LG 43LH590 (43") and 9" larger than the Samsung UE40K5500 (40").

‘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.

Built-In Subwoofer
The LG 49LF590 has a built-in subwoofer, whereas the Samsung UE40K5500 does not have a built-in subwoofer.

A subwoofer is a specialised bass speaker for your TV, designed to provide punchy and powerful low notes for music and movies. Alternatively, an underground dog.

A built-in subwoofer will give your TV's sound system a serious boost on the low end bass notes. This will be best experienced in the bangs, thumps and explosions of movies, or in bass-heavy music.

9 Reasons For
50% Higher RMS Rated Power
The Samsung UE40K5500 is a 20W RMS rated power TV. That's 10W higher than the LG 43LH590 and the LG 49LF590 (10W).

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.

Local Dimming
The Samsung UE40K5500 features local dimming, however the LG 49LF590 does not feature local dimming.

'Local Dimming' on a TV is a function that dims certain sections of the backlight to control the level of light/color intensity in a given part of the screen.

Local dimming can be used to make blacks on the screen appear darker and richer by removing the backlight behind them.

Read more Read less | Edit
Thinner
The Samsung UE40K5500 has a thickness of 55.1mm. That's 26.4mm thinner than the LG 43LH590 (81.5mm) and 3.6mm thinner than the LG 49LF590 (58.7mm).

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.

Read more Read less | Edit
Common Interface (CI) Slot
The Samsung UE40K5500 has a common interface (CI) slot, whereas the LG 49LF590 does not.

A common interface slot provides compatibility with pay-per-view cards.

A common interface slot allows you to install pay per view cards. For example Sky TV sell pay per cards for watching football and boxing and WWE Network sell cards for watching wrestling.
