Reasons For

4 Reasons For
Slightly larger display diagonal Edit
The LG 49LF5400 has a display diagonal of 49", whereas the Samsung UN48J5000 is only a 47.6" TV (1.4" smaller). Read more

‘Display Diagonal’ is the measure of the size of the TV screen from top-left to bottom-right corner, 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. TVs with a bigger display diagonal allow you to make the most of HD content and are great for watching movies. 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.

4% thinner Edit
LG 49LF5400 is 58.7mm thick. That's 2.3mm thinner than the Samsung UN48J5000 (61mm). 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.

The LG 49LF5400 costs $0.01 less than the Samsung UN48J5000.
Better user reviews
The average user review score of the LG 49LF5400 is 100% based on 1 review, however the average rating of the Samsung UN48J5000 is 92% (based on 960 reviews).
2 Reasons For
50% higher RMS rated power Edit
The Samsung UN48J5000 is a 20W RMS rated power TV. That's 10W higher than the LG 49LF5400 (20W). Read more
