Reasons For

2 Reasons For
14% larger screen size Edit
The LG 49UH6100 has a screen size of 49"", however the Samsung UN43J5200 is only a 42.5"" TV (6.5" 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.

Three HDMI ports Edit
The number of HDMI ports on the LG 49UH6100 is three, but the Samsung UN43J5200 only has two 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.

3 Reasons For
11.08mm thinner Edit
The Samsung UN43J5200 is a 58.42mmmm thick TV. That's 11.08mm thinner than the LG 49UH6100 (58.42mmmm). Read more
