Reasons For

LG 49LH590 Philips 43PUS6401
5 Reasons For
Larger Display Diagonal
The LG 49LH590 is a 49" TV. That's 6" larger than the Philips 43PUS6401 (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.

Superior Energy Efficiency Rating
The energy efficiency rating of the LG 49LH590 is "A++", whereas the rating of the Philips 43PUS6401 is "A".
Better Brand
LG TVs have an average rating of 86.4%, but Philips has an average rating of 84.3%.
3 Reasons For
A Lot Higher RMS Rated Power
The Philips 43PUS6401 has an RMS rated power of 20W, but the LG 49LH590 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
4.5mm Thinner
Philips 43PUS6401 is 77mm thick, but the LG 49LH590 is an 81.5mm thick TV (4.5mm 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.

DVI Port
The Philips 43PUS6401 has a DVI port, however the LG 49LH590 does not have a DVI port.
