Reasons For

5 Reasons For
Wi-Fi Edit

A Wifi (wireless LAN connection) on your TV means that you can connect your TV directly to your WiFi network.

A wifi connection means that connecting your TV to the net will be easier and can be done without cables.

Ethernet port Edit
The Samsung DB40E has an ethernet port, whereas the Samsung HG48ND670 does not have an ethernet port. Read more

An ethernet port lets you connect the TV directly to your router with an ethernet cable.

An ethernet connection is more reliable than wifi and is useful if you do not have a wiki network or the wifi signal is weak. Depending on the speed of your wifi network and ethernet connection may be faster than wifi which means less buffering when streaming content to the TV.

DVI port Edit
The Samsung DB40E has a DVI port, whereas the Samsung HG48ND670 does not.
PC in (D-Sub) port Edit
The Samsung DB40E has a PC in (D-Sub) port, whereas the Samsung HG48ND670 does not have a PC in (D-Sub) port. Read more

3 Reasons For
8" larger display diagonal Edit
The Samsung HG48ND670 has a display diagonal of 48", whereas the Samsung DB40E is only a 40" TV (8" 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.

1% thinner Edit
Samsung HG48ND670 is 49.7mm thick. That's 0.2mm thinner than the Samsung DB40E (49.7mm). 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.

Cheaper by $113
The Samsung HG48ND670 costs $112.83 less than the Samsung DB40E.
