Reasons For

5 Reasons For
50% faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The LG 43LF6300 is a 120Hz motion interpolation frequency TV. That's 60Hz faster than the Samsung UN48J5500 (60Hz). Read more

The motion interpolation frequency is the frame rate which the TV is able to artificially create by inserting additional frames into the picture between the frames included in the original video source.

A faster motion interpolation frequency will result in smoother action scenes, less motion blur and a more life like image.

Thinner Edit
LG 43LF6300 is 55.1mm thick, but the Samsung UN48J5500 is a 66mm thick TV (10.9mm 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 1 shops
A greater number of stores increases the chances of this TV remaining in stock and also increases the price competition amongst retailers for the product.

The LG 43LF6300 has an average expert review score of 83% based on 3 reviews, however the Samsung UN48J5500 has an average rating of 72% (based on 7 reviews).
User reviews are a little better
The LG 43LF6300 has an average user review score of 93% based on 17 reviews, however the Samsung UN48J5500 has an average rating of 92% (based on 645 reviews).
2 Reasons For
4.6" larger display diagonal Edit
The Samsung UN48J5500 has a display diagonal of 47.6", whereas the LG 43LF6300 is only a 43" TV (4.6" 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.

Cheaper by $199
The Samsung UN48J5500 costs $199.03 less than the LG 43LF6300.
