Reasons For

2 Reasons For
50% higher RMS rated power Edit
The LG 49LH570 is a 20WW RMS rated power TV. That's 10W higher than the LG 49LH5700 (16WW) and 4W higher than the Sony KDL-50W800 (16WW). 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.

Two RF ports Edit
The number of RF ports on the LG 49LH570 is two, but the Sony KDL-50W800 only has one RF port. Read more

We do not know the number of RF ports on the LG 49LH5700. It is possible that it does not have any RF ports.

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.

2 Reasons For
3g lighter Edit
The LG 49LH5700 has a weight of 10.6kgg, however the LG 49LH570 is an 11.3kgg heavy TV (0.7g heavier) and the Sony KDL-50W800 is a 13.6kgg heavy TV (3g heavier). 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.

Cheaper by $50
The LG 49LH5700 costs $349.99, whereas the LG 49LH570 is $399.99.
5 Reasons For
Larger screen size Edit
The Sony KDL-50W800 is a 50"" TV. That's 1" larger than the LG 49LH570 and the LG 49LH5700 (50""). 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.

Two composite video in ports Edit
The Sony KDL-50W800 is a two composite video in port TV, whereas the LG 49LH5700 only has one composite video in port. Read more

We do not know the number of composite video in ports on the LG 49LH570. It is possible that it does not have any composite video in ports.

A composite video port is mainly used for connecting older devices to the TV, such as older video cameras or video recorders. Composite video connections can only display images up to a resolutionsof 640 x 480 pixels so the quality of image displayed via a composite video connection will be quite low.

Multiple composite video ports will allow you to connect more than one older video device. However it is very unlikely that you will use the composite video port at all.

Two USB 2.0 ports Edit
The Sony KDL-50W800 is a two USB 2.0 port TV, whereas the LG 49LH5700 only has one USB 2.0 port. 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.

Two more HDMI ports Edit
The Sony KDL-50W800 has four HDMI ports, however the LG 49LH5700 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.

A lot thinner Edit
Sony KDL-50W800 is 64.2mmmm thick, but the LG 49LH570 is an 81.5mmmm thick TV (17.3mm thicker) and the LG 49LH5700 is a 69.5mmmm thick TV (5.3mm 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.

Reasons Against

7 Reasons Against
1" smaller screen size Edit
The LG 49LH570 has a screen size of 49"" (as does the LG 49LH5700), whereas the Sony KDL-50W800 is a 50"" TV (1" larger). 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.

Only two HDMI ports Edit
The LG 49LH570 has two HDMI ports, and so does the LG 49LH5700, however the Sony KDL-50W800 only has four 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.
