Reasons For

5 Reasons For
Three USB 2.0 ports Edit
The LG 43LF6300 is a three USB 2.0 port TV, whereas the Samsung UN48J5500 only has two USB 2.0 ports. Read more

USB ports are useful for displaying on your TV photos / videos or playing music that is stored on USB key drives. The USB port can also be used for charging devices from your TV (as long as it's switched on), and for installing software updates on the TV.

More USB ports will allow you to connect more USB devices to the TV simultaneously without needing to continuous plug in and unplug cables.

Thinner Edit
LG 43LF6300 is 55.1mmmm thick, but the Samsung UN48J5500 is a 66mmmm thick TV (10.9mm thicker). Read more

The depth of the TV is the thickness of the 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.

1.1g lighter Edit
The LG 43LF6300 is a 10.2kgg heavy TV. That's 1.1g lighter than the Samsung UN48J5500 (11.3kgg). Read more

The weight is the total weight of the TV excluding all packaging.

A lighter weight TV will be easier to move around and to mount on a wall. Some of the larger, very heavy TVs may require lightweight partition walls to be reinforced before the TV could be mounted.

Expert reviews are a lot better
The LG 43LF6300 has an average expert review score of 83% based on 3 reviews, however the Samsung UN48J5500 has an average rating of 72% (based on 5 reviews).
User reviews are a little better
The LG 43LF6300 has an average user review score of 93% based on 17 reviews, however the Samsung UN48J5500 has an average rating of 89% (based on 60 reviews).
1 Reason For
4.6" larger screen size Edit
The Samsung UN48J5500 has a screen size of 47.6"", whereas the LG 43LF6300 is only a 43"" TV (4.6" smaller). Read more

The display diagonal of a TV is the most common measure of screen size and is the distance from the top left to the bottom right of the visible part of a TV screen 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. 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.

TVs with a bigger display diagonal allow you to make the most of HD content and are great for watching movies.
