Reasons For

2 Reasons For
0.5" larger display diagonal Edit
The LG 32LH500 has a display diagonal of 32", but the Samsung UN32J4000 is only a 31.5" TV (0.5" 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.

17% higher RMS rated power Edit
The LG 32LH500 is a 12W RMS rated power TV. That's 2W higher than the Samsung UN32J4000 (10W). 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.

3 Reasons For
12% thinner Edit
The Samsung UN32J4000 has a depth of 69mm. That's 8mm thinner than the LG 32LH500 (69mm). 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 $33
The Samsung UN32J4000 is $33 cheaper than the LG 32LH500.
19 shops are selling it
A greater number of sellers increases the price competition amongst retailers for the product and also increases the chances of this TV remaining in stock.
