Reasons For

1 Reason For
2% larger screen size Edit
The LG 43LF5400 is a 43"" TV, and so does the VIZIO E43-C2. That's 0.5" larger than the Samsung UN43J5200 (42.51"") and 0.49" larger than the VIZIO M43-C1 (42.51""). 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.

5 Reasons For
A lot higher RMS rated power Edit
The Samsung UN43J5200 has an RMS rated power of 20WW, however the VIZIO E43-C2 and the VIZIO M43-C1 are both only 10WW RMS rated power TVs (10W lower). Read more

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.

One more RF port Edit
The Samsung UN43J5200 has two RF ports, however the VIZIO M43-C1 only has one RF port. Read more

RF stands for Radio Frequency and an RF port is an older type of input connector for TVs which is most commonly use for connecting cable TV and satellite TV feeds directly to the TV.

Multiple RF ports will allow you to connect multiple RF feeds to the TV at the same time. For example, if the TV has a built in satellite TV decoder then you could connect 2 different satellite dishes to the TV.

15% thinner Edit
The Samsung UN43J5200 has a thickness of 58.42mmmm, however the LG 43LF5400 is a 58.7mmmm thick TV (0.28mm thicker), the VIZIO E43-C2 is a 67.06mmmm thick TV (8.64mm thicker) and the VIZIO M43-C1 is a 61.98mmmm thick TV (3.56mm 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.

Available from 13 shops
A greater number of stores increases the price competition amongst retailers for this TV and also increases the chances of the product remaining in stock.
User reviews are significantly better
The Samsung UN43J5200 has an average user review score of 100% based on 3 reviews, whereas the LG 43LF5400 has an average rating of 80% (based on 1 review), the VIZIO E43-C2 has an average rating of 80% (based on 1 review) and the VIZIO M43-C1 has an average rating of 80% (based on 1 review).
2 Reasons For
Marginally larger screen size Edit
The VIZIO E43-C2 has a screen size of 43"" (as does the LG 43LF5400), but the Samsung UN43J5200 is only a 42.5"" TV (0.5" smaller) and the VIZIO M43-C1 is only a 42.51"" TV (0.49" 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.

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.

Cheaper by $41
The VIZIO E43-C2 is $247.99 cheaper than the LG 43LF5400, $40.99 cheaper than the Samsung UN43J5200 and $140 cheaper than the VIZIO M43-C1.
1 Reason For
Four more HDMI ports Edit
The VIZIO M43-C1 has five HDMI ports, however the LG 43LF5400 only has one HDMI port, the Samsung UN43J5200 only has two HDMI ports and the VIZIO E43-C2 only has three HDMI ports. Read more

The HDMI ports quantity is the number of ports that the TV has that will accept a HDMI cable. HDMI is the most common type of cable used to connect modern TVs, DVD players, games consoles etc.

A greater number of HDMI ports will allow you to permanently connect more devices to the TV and will reduce the need to reach around the back of the TV to unplug and plug in cables when switching between devices.

Reasons Against

8 Reasons Against
One less RF port Edit
The LG 43LF5400 is a one RF port TV (as do the VIZIO E43-C2 and the VIZIO M43-C1), whereas the Samsung UN43J5200 only has two RF ports. Read more
