Reasons For

LG 49LH5100 Samsung HG43ED690
5 Reasons For
6" Larger Display Diagonal
The LG 49LH5100 is a 49" TV. That's 6" larger than the Samsung HG43ED690 (43").

‘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.

67% Faster Motion Interpolation Frequency
The LG 49LH5100 is a 300Hz motion interpolation frequency TV. That's 200Hz faster than the Samsung HG43ED690 (100Hz).

The motion interpolation frequency is the frame rate which the TV is able to artificially create by inserting additional frames into the picture between the frames included in the original video source.

A faster motion interpolation frequency will result in smoother action scenes, less motion blur and a more life like image.

Better Energy Efficiency Rating
The energy efficiency rating of the LG 49LH5100 is "A++", however the rating of the Samsung HG43ED690 is "A+".
7 Reasons For
10W Higher RMS Rated Power
The Samsung HG43ED690 has an RMS rated power of 20W, whereas the LG 49LH5100 is only a 10W RMS rated power TV (10W lower).

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 Samsung HG43ED690 supports Wi-Fi, however the LG 49LH5100 does not support Wi-Fi.

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
Ethernet Port
The Samsung HG43ED690 has an ethernet port, but the LG 49LH5100 does not have an ethernet port.

An ethernet port lets you connect the TV directly to your router with an ethernet cable.

An ethernet connection is more reliable than wifi and is useful if you do not have a wiki network or the wifi signal is weak. Depending on the speed of your wifi network and ethernet connection may be faster than wifi which means less buffering when streaming content to the TV.

Read more Read less | Edit
14.6mm Thinner
The Samsung HG43ED690 is a 66.9mm thick TV, whereas the LG 49LH5100 is an 81.5mm thick TV (14.6mm 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.

Read more Read less | Edit
PC in (D-Sub) Port
The Samsung HG43ED690 has a PC in (D-Sub) port, but the LG 49LH5100 does not have a PC in (D-Sub) port.

The socket (port) to receive input from a PC via a D-sub, which is a connector with a characteristic D-shaped metal shield. Also known as a VGA Port.
