3 Reasons For for Choosing the Samsung PM43H

60% Thinner

The Samsung PM43H is a 30 thick TV. That's 33.6mm thinner than the LG 49SM8600PUA (63.6mm), 27mm thinner than the Sony XBR49X800G (57mm), 43.6mm thinner than the TCL 43S405 (73.6mm) and 38.07mm thinner than the VIZIO D40D1 (68.07mm). More ...

The thickness of a 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.

Better Kagoo Score

The Samsung PM43H has received a Kagoo Score of 86, but the LG 49SM8600PUA scored 85, the Sony XBR49X800G scored 84 and the VIZIO D40D1 scored 81.

Better User Reviews

Based on 1 review, the Samsung PM43H has an average user review score of 100%, but the LG 49SM8600PUA has an average rating of 90% (based on 12 reviews) and the TCL 43S405 has an average rating of 91% (based on 812 reviews).

8 Reasons Against for Choosing the Samsung PM43H

4 Times Lower Display Resolution

The Samsung PM43H is full hd, however the LG 49SM8600PUA, the Sony XBR49X800G and the TCL 43S405 are all 4K. More ...

HD Type on a TV refers to the type of high definition image that the TV is capable of displaying (e.g. Full HD, 4K Ultra HD).

The better the HD type the better the image resolution and the perceived sharpness of the image will be. Images will appear more life like and realistic. This will be more noticeable on a TV with a larger display diagonal.

13% Smaller Display Diagonal

The Samsung PM43H has a display diagonal of 43 (as does the TCL 43S405), however the LG 49SM8600PUA is a 49" TV (6" larger), the Sony XBR49X800G is a 48.5" TV (5.5" larger) and the VIZIO D40D1 is a 39.5" TV (3.5" smaller). 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 are viewing from a distance of 6ft (72 inches) you would need a TV display diagonal of 60 inches.

Lower Dynamic Contrast Ratio

The Samsung PM43H has a high (3000:1) dynamic contrast ratio, whereas the VIZIO D40D1 has an ultra high dynamic contrast ratio. We do not know what type of dynamic contrast ratio the Sony XBR49X800G and the TCL 43S405 have. More ...

'Contrast Ratio' is a measure of the image contrast that the TV is capable of producing - it is the difference between the brightness of the darkest black and brightest white that the TV can produce. The higher the contrast ratio the better the contrast.

A higher the contrast ratio means that the TV can product darker blacks and brighter whites, resulting in better image quality. So a TV with a contrast ratio of 1000:1 can produce whites which are 1000 times brighter than the darkest black that the TV can produce.

More Expensive by $478

The Samsung PM43H is $233 more expensive than the LG 49SM8600PUA, $180 more expensive than the Sony XBR49X800G, $340 more expensive than the TCL 43S405 and $478 more expensive than the VIZIO D40D1.

Not As Many Stockists

The Samsung PM43H is only stocked by 5 shops, however the Sony XBR49X800G is stocked by 9 shops. More ...

Fewer numbers of shops reduces the chances of the product remaining in stock and also reduces the price competition amongst retailers for this TV.
Older by Over One Year

The Samsung PM43H is 15 months older than the LG 49SM8600PUA, eight months older than the Sony XBR49X800G and 14 months older than the TCL 43S405.

Higher Running Costs Over Five Years by $152

The Samsung PM43H costs $202 to run which is $112 more than the LG 49SM8600PUA, $110 more than the Sony XBR49X800G, $143 more than the TCL 43S405 and $152 more than the VIZIO D40D1 over five years. Show assumptions.

Worse Brand

Samsung TVs have an average rating of only 94.2%, however LG has an average rating of 95%.

The cheapest price that we could find for the PM43H in the US is $779.99 and in total we found 5 prices for it.

8 Reasons Against for Choosing the TCL 43S405

Smaller Display Diagonal

The TCL 43S405 has a display diagonal of 43 (as does the Samsung PM43H), but the LG 49SM8600PUA is a 49" TV (6" larger), the Sony XBR49X800G is a 48.5" TV (5.5" larger) and the VIZIO D40D1 is a 39.5" TV (3.5" smaller). 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.

So if you are viewing from a distance of 6ft (72 inches) you would need a TV display diagonal of 60 inches.

Thicker

The TCL 43S405 has a thickness of 73.6. That's 10mm thicker than the LG 49SM8600PUA (63.6mm), 43.6mm thicker than the Samsung PM43H (30mm), 16.6mm thicker than the Sony XBR49X800G (57mm) and 5.53mm thicker than the VIZIO D40D1 (68.07mm). More ...

The thickness of a 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.

More Expensive by $138

The TCL 43S405 is $138 more expensive than the VIZIO D40D1.

Fewer Sellers

The TCL 43S405 is only stocked by 1 store, but the LG 49SM8600PUA is stocked by 3 shops, the Samsung PM43H is stocked by 5 sellers, the Sony XBR49X800G is stocked by 9 stores and the VIZIO D40D1 is stocked by 2 sellers. More ...

The fewer the number of sellers that stock the product, the lower the competition amongst sellers to keep prices low.
Older by One Month

The TCL 43S405 is one month older than the LG 49SM8600PUA.

$9 More Expensive to Run Over Five Years

Over five years the running costs of the TCL 43S405 are $59 which is $9 more than the VIZIO D40D1. Show assumptions.

User Review Rating is Worse

22 Reasons For for Choosing the LG 49SM8600PUA

Higher Display Resolution

The LG 49SM8600PUA is 4K, and so are the Sony XBR49X800G and the TCL 43S405, which is 4 times the display resolution of the Samsung PM43H (full hd). More ...

HD Type on a TV refers to the type of high definition image that the TV is capable of displaying (e.g. Full HD, 4K Ultra HD).

The better the HD type the better the image resolution and the perceived sharpness of the image will be. Images will appear more life like and realistic. This will be more noticeable on a TV with a larger display diagonal.

Larger Display Diagonal

The LG 49SM8600PUA is a 49 TV. That's 6" larger than the Samsung PM43H and the TCL 43S405 (43"), 0.5" larger than the Sony XBR49X800G (48.5") and 9.5" larger than the VIZIO D40D1 (39.5"). 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 are viewing from a distance of 6ft (72 inches) you would need a TV display diagonal of 60 inches.

42% Faster High Frequency Rate

The LG 49SM8600PUA is a 200 refresh rate TV. That's 140Hz faster than the VIZIO D40D1 (60Hz). More ...

The refresh rate (also known as the high frequency rate) is the number of times that the image on the screen is refreshed per second. It affects how smoothly motion on the screen appears.

Action will appear smoother on TVs with a higher frequency rate: a TV with a high frequency rate of 30Hz refreshes the image on the screen once every 30 times every second. However a TV with a high frequency rate of 60Hz would refresh the image on the screen 60 times every second which means that action scenes would appear smoother.

17% Higher RMS Rated Power

The LG 49SM8600PUA has an RMS rated power of 20 (as does the Sony XBR49X800G), however the VIZIO D40D1 is only a 16W RMS rated power TV (4W lower). 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.

Timeshift

The LG 49SM8600PUA supports timeshift, however the Samsung PM43H, the Sony XBR49X800G, the TCL 43S405 and the VIZIO D40D1 do not support this feature. More ...

'Timeshifting' on a TV is the ability to record movies and programs to be viewed or listened to after the live broadcast.

TVs with timeshifting abilities mean that you don't have to watch programs when they are first broadcast - you can record them and watch them at your leisure.

Screen Mirroring

The LG 49SM8600PUA supports screen mirroring (as does the Sony XBR49X800G), however the Samsung PM43H, the TCL 43S405 and the VIZIO D40D1 do not support this feature. More ...

Screen Mirroring on a TV is a system that allows you to view the screen from a computer or mobile phone on your TV.

Screen mirroring on a TV is helpful because it allows you to easily display media and info running on a phone or laptop to a big screen for easy viewing with a minimum of effort.

Parental Controls

The LG 49SM8600PUA supports parental controls, however the Samsung PM43H, the Sony XBR49X800G, the TCL 43S405 and the VIZIO D40D1 do not. More ...

Parental controls on a TV allow users to limit the films and programs that can be viewed on the TV, preventing adults-only content from being viewed by children.

Parental controls are a good way of stopping children accidentally (or totally not-accidentally) watching violent or sexual programs when parents aren't around to stop them.

Smartphone Remote App

The LG 49SM8600PUA has a smartphone remote app, whereas the Samsung PM43H, the Sony XBR49X800G, the TCL 43S405 and the VIZIO D40D1 do not. More ...

'Smartphone Remote' states whether the TV has the capability to be controlled using your smartphone, acting as a surrogate remote. This will usually require the installation of an app onto your phone.

Using your smartphone as a remote is helpful because it means that you don't have to use the official remote to control the TV - your smartphone will work instead. Helpful since you will quite often already have it in your pocket!

Game Mode

The LG 49SM8600PUA has a game mode, however the Samsung PM43H, the Sony XBR49X800G, the TCL 43S405 and the VIZIO D40D1 do not. More ...

'Game Mode' on a TV is a specialist mode that scales down the graphical fidelity of the video in order to free up processing power for response time.

In effect this trades slightly worse graphical capabilities for lessened input lag, meaning a smoother, more responsive experience when gaming.

High Dynamic Range Imaging (HDRI)

The LG 49SM8600PUA features High Dynamic Range Imaging (HDRI), and so does the Sony XBR49X800G, whereas the Samsung PM43H, the TCL 43S405 and the VIZIO D40D1 do not. More ...

High Dynamic Range Imaging (HDRI) on a TV is a system that allows preserves details in the darkest and brightest areas of the screen that are lost using standard display methods.

HDRI on a TV allows for better contrast levels, greater brightness levels and a wider colour palette on films and TV programs. This translates into more natural, true-to-life colours that are closer to how we see them in real life.

Local Dimming

The LG 49SM8600PUA features local dimming (as does the Sony XBR49X800G), however the Samsung PM43H, the TCL 43S405 and the VIZIO D40D1 do not feature this benefit. More ...

'Local Dimming' on a TV is a function that dims certain sections of the backlight to control the level of light/color intensity in a given part of the screen.

Local dimming can be used to make blacks on the screen appear darker and richer by removing the backlight behind them.

USB Recording

The LG 49SM8600PUA features USB recording, whereas the Samsung PM43H, the Sony XBR49X800G, the TCL 43S405 and the VIZIO D40D1 do not feature this benefit. More ...

A USB recording function on a TV allows you to record live TV onto a USB device.

Recording live TV onto a USB device is a good way to save films and TV programs for later viewing.

Noise Reduction

The LG 49SM8600PUA supports noise reduction, whereas the Samsung PM43H, the Sony XBR49X800G, the TCL 43S405 and the VIZIO D40D1 do not. More ...

Noise reduction helps reduce intrusive audio and visual noise for a clearer and better viewing experience.

Wi-Fi

The LG 49SM8600PUA supports Wi-Fi (as do the Sony XBR49X800G and the VIZIO D40D1), but the Samsung PM43H and the TCL 43S405 do not support this feature. More ...

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.

Bluetooth

The LG 49SM8600PUA supports Bluetooth (as does the Sony XBR49X800G), however the Samsung PM43H, the TCL 43S405 and the VIZIO D40D1 do not support this feature. More ...

A Bluetooth connection on your TV means it can send and receive data from Bluetooth-enabled devices, such as headphones, mobile phones or remotes.

A Bluetooth connection on your phone allows you to use many newer wireless devices with your TV, such as wireless headphones and controlling your TV using your phone.

Ethernet Port

The LG 49SM8600PUA has an ethernet port, and so do the Sony XBR49X800G and the VIZIO D40D1, whereas the Samsung PM43H and the TCL 43S405 do not. 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.

Miracast

The LG 49SM8600PUA supports Miracast (as does the Sony XBR49X800G), however the Samsung PM43H, the TCL 43S405 and the VIZIO D40D1 do not support this feature. More ...

Miracast is a peer-to-peer wireless screencasting standard formed via Wi-Fi Direct connections in a manner similar to Bluetooth.

TVs with Miracast can use it to stream media from computers and mobile phones at very high quality without the need to attach cables first, making the whole process far easier.

Voice Control

The LG 49SM8600PUA features voice control, but the Samsung PM43H, the Sony XBR49X800G, the TCL 43S405 and the VIZIO D40D1 do not. More ...

Voice Control on a TV is a system that allows users to control various functions of their TV (volume, channels, etc) purely with voice commands, rather than having to use the remote.

Voice controls mean that you can control the TV from your couch without having to find a remote or move to manually change the channel or adjust the settings, leading to a more streamlined experience.

Desktop Stand Included

The LG 49SM8600PUA has a desktop stand included, whereas the Samsung PM43H, the Sony XBR49X800G, the TCL 43S405 and the VIZIO D40D1 do not. More ...

9 Reasons Against for Choosing the LG 49SM8600PUA

33.6mm Thicker

The LG 49SM8600PUA has a thickness of 63.6, however the Samsung PM43H is a 30mm thick TV (33.6mm thinner), the Sony XBR49X800G is a 57mm thick TV (6.6mm thinner), the TCL 43S405 is a 73.6mm thick TV (10mm thicker) and the VIZIO D40D1 is a 68.07mm thick TV (4.47mm thicker). More ...

The thickness of a 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.

Not 3D

The LG 49SM8600PUA is not 3D (As do the the Sony XBR49X800G and the VIZIO D40D1), whereas the Samsung PM43H and the TCL 43S405 are. More ...

‘3D’ describes whether the TV can display 3D movies and programmes. Requires compatible 3D glasses to properly function.

10 Reasons For for Choosing the Sony XBR49X800G

Higher Display Resolution

The Sony XBR49X800G is 4K, and so are the LG 49SM8600PUA and the TCL 43S405, which is 4 times the display resolution of the Samsung PM43H (full hd). More ...

HD Type on a TV refers to the type of high definition image that the TV is capable of displaying (e.g. Full HD, 4K Ultra HD).

The better the HD type the better the image resolution and the perceived sharpness of the image will be. Images will appear more life like and realistic. This will be more noticeable on a TV with a larger display diagonal.

17% Higher RMS Rated Power

The Sony XBR49X800G has an RMS rated power of 20 (as does the LG 49SM8600PUA), however the VIZIO D40D1 is only a 16W RMS rated power TV (4W lower). 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.

Screen Mirroring

The Sony XBR49X800G supports screen mirroring (as does the LG 49SM8600PUA), however the Samsung PM43H, the TCL 43S405 and the VIZIO D40D1 do not support this feature. More ...

Screen Mirroring on a TV is a system that allows you to view the screen from a computer or mobile phone on your TV.

Screen mirroring on a TV is helpful because it allows you to easily display media and info running on a phone or laptop to a big screen for easy viewing with a minimum of effort.

High Dynamic Range Imaging (HDRI)

The Sony XBR49X800G features High Dynamic Range Imaging (HDRI), and so does the LG 49SM8600PUA, whereas the Samsung PM43H, the TCL 43S405 and the VIZIO D40D1 do not. More ...

9 Reasons Against for Choosing the Sony XBR49X800G

2% Smaller Display Diagonal

The Sony XBR49X800G is a 48.5 TV. That's 0.5" smaller than the LG 49SM8600PUA (49"), 5.5" larger than the Samsung PM43H and the TCL 43S405 (43") and 9" larger than the VIZIO D40D1 (39.5"). 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 are viewing from a distance of 6ft (72 inches) you would need a TV display diagonal of 60 inches.

27mm Thicker

The Sony XBR49X800G has a thickness of 57, however the LG 49SM8600PUA is a 63.6mm thick TV (6.6mm thicker), the Samsung PM43H is a 30mm thick TV (27mm thinner), the TCL 43S405 is a 73.6mm thick TV (16.6mm thicker) and the VIZIO D40D1 is a 68.07mm thick TV (11.07mm thicker). More ...

The thickness of a 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.

99% Slower Motion Interpolation Frequency

The Sony XBR49X800G is a 60 motion interpolation frequency TV. That's 3,240Hz slower than the LG 49SM8600PUA (3,300Hz). 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.

Not 3D

The Sony XBR49X800G is not 3D (As do the the LG 49SM8600PUA and the VIZIO D40D1), whereas the Samsung PM43H and the TCL 43S405 are. More ...

For most TVs you will need to wear special glasses to see the 3D effect.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Sony XBR49X800G has received a Kagoo Score of 84, whereas the LG 49SM8600PUA scored 85, the Samsung PM43H scored 86 and the TCL 43S405 scored 86.

$298 More Expensive

The Sony XBR49X800G is more expensive than the LG 49SM8600PUA by $53, more expensive than the TCL 43S405 by $160 and more expensive than the VIZIO D40D1 by $298.

Seven Months Older

The Sony XBR49X800G is older than the LG 49SM8600PUA by seven months and older than the TCL 43S405 by six months.

More Expensive to Run Over Five Years by 83%

The running costs over five years of the Sony XBR49X800G are $91 which is $2 more than the LG 49SM8600PUA, $33 more than the TCL 43S405 and $42 more than the VIZIO D40D1. Show assumptions.

Worse Brand

Sony TVs have an average rating of only 85.6%, but LG has an average rating of 95%, Samsung has an average rating of 94.2% and VIZIO has an average rating of 88.3%.

The Sony XBR49X800G is 1,096mm wide, 640mm tall, 57mm thick and weighs 12.2kg.

5 Reasons For for Choosing the VIZIO D40D1

Twice As High Dynamic Contrast Ratio

The VIZIO D40D1 has an ultra high (200000:1) dynamic contrast ratio, which is twice as high dynamic contrast ratio as the Samsung PM43H (high). We do not know what type of dynamic contrast ratio the Sony XBR49X800G and the TCL 43S405 have. More ...

'Contrast Ratio' is a measure of the image contrast that the TV is capable of producing - it is the difference between the brightness of the darkest black and brightest white that the TV can produce. The higher the contrast ratio the better the contrast.

A higher the contrast ratio means that the TV can product darker blacks and brighter whites, resulting in better image quality. So a TV with a contrast ratio of 1000:1 can produce whites which are 1000 times brighter than the darkest black that the TV can produce.

Wi-Fi

The VIZIO D40D1 supports Wi-Fi (as do the LG 49SM8600PUA and the Sony XBR49X800G), but the Samsung PM43H and the TCL 43S405 do not support this feature. More ...

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

The VIZIO D40D1 has an ethernet port, and so do the LG 49SM8600PUA and the Sony XBR49X800G, whereas the Samsung PM43H and the TCL 43S405 do not. 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.

$138 Cheaper

The VIZIO D40D1 is $245 cheaper than the LG 49SM8600PUA, $478 cheaper than the Samsung PM43H, $298 cheaper than the Sony XBR49X800G and $138.01 cheaper than the TCL 43S405.

Cheaper to Run by $150 Over Five Years

The VIZIO D40D1 is $39 cheaper to run than the LG 49SM8600PUA, $152 cheaper to run than the Samsung PM43H, $42 cheaper to run than the Sony XBR49X800G and $9 cheaper to run than the TCL 43S405 over five years. More ...

9 Reasons Against for Choosing the VIZIO D40D1

Smaller Display Diagonal

The VIZIO D40D1 is a 39.5 TV. That's 9.5" smaller than the LG 49SM8600PUA (49"), 3.5" smaller than the Samsung PM43H and the TCL 43S405 (43") and 9" smaller than the Sony XBR49X800G (48.5"). 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.

So if you are viewing from a distance of 6ft (72 inches) you would need a TV display diagonal of 60 inches.

A Lot Thicker

The VIZIO D40D1 has a thickness of 68.07, however the LG 49SM8600PUA is a 63.6mm thick TV (4.47mm thinner), the Samsung PM43H is a 30mm thick TV (38.07mm thinner), the Sony XBR49X800G is a 57mm thick TV (11.07mm thinner) and the TCL 43S405 is a 73.6mm thick TV (5.53mm thicker). More ...

The thickness of a 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.

Slower High Frequency Rate

The VIZIO D40D1 is a 60 refresh rate TV. That's 140Hz slower than the LG 49SM8600PUA (200Hz). More ...

The refresh rate (also known as the high frequency rate) is the number of times that the image on the screen is refreshed per second. It affects how smoothly motion on the screen appears.

Action will appear smoother on TVs with a higher frequency rate: a TV with a high frequency rate of 30Hz refreshes the image on the screen once every 30 times every second.
