18 Reasons For for Choosing the Samsung Series 7 UN43NU7100

Auto Volume Leveler

The Samsung Series 7 UN43NU7100 has an auto volume leveler, however the LG 49UF6400, the Sony XBR49X800G, the TCL 43S405 and the VIZIO D40D1 do not have this feature. More ...

An auto-volume leveler on your TV is a system to automatically adjust the volume on your TV to provide a consistent acceptable volume level across multiple inputs and programs.

An auto-volume leveler system on your TV will stop the volume from accidentally being set too low or too high for a movie or programme, making the sound more even across the board.

Higher RMS Rated Power

The Samsung Series 7 UN43NU7100 has an RMS rated power of 20 (as do the LG 49UF6400 and the Sony XBR49X800G), but 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 Samsung Series 7 UN43NU7100 supports screen mirroring (as does the Sony XBR49X800G), but the LG 49UF6400, 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.

Game Mode

The Samsung Series 7 UN43NU7100 has a game mode, but the LG 49UF6400, 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 Samsung Series 7 UN43NU7100 features High Dynamic Range Imaging (HDRI), and so does the Sony XBR49X800G, however the LG 49UF6400, 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.

Digital Clean View

The Samsung Series 7 UN43NU7100 supports Digital Clean View, however the LG 49UF6400, the Sony XBR49X800G, the TCL 43S405 and the VIZIO D40D1 do not support this feature. More ...

'Digital Clean View' is a function on Smart TVs that reduced the noise from low-quality signals.

Using Digital Clean View can drastically improve the picture quality on both analogue and digital signals by removing as much noise and blurring as possible from the picture.

Wi-Fi

The Samsung Series 7 UN43NU7100 supports Wi-Fi (as do the LG 49UF6400, the Sony XBR49X800G and the VIZIO D40D1), whereas the TCL 43S405 does 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 Samsung Series 7 UN43NU7100 has an ethernet port, and so do the LG 49UF6400, the Sony XBR49X800G and the VIZIO D40D1, however the TCL 43S405 does 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.

Wi-Fi Direct

The Samsung Series 7 UN43NU7100 supports Wi-Fi Direct, and so does the LG 49UF6400, but the Sony XBR49X800G, the TCL 43S405 and the VIZIO D40D1 do not. More ...

Wi-Fi Direct is a system to allow your TV to connect directly to other device without requiring a wireless router as a go-between.

Wi-Fi Direct is helpful on a TV because it allows a TV to connect to another device (such as a computer or phone) directly, meaning there is far less setup required - the devices just need to be 'paired' (normally at a press of a button) and the y can transfer data between each other. This is extremely useful for streaming media onto your TV from a computer or phone.

Better Kagoo Score

The Samsung Series 7 UN43NU7100 has received a Kagoo Score of 88, however the LG 49UF6400 scored 86, the Sony XBR49X800G scored 85, the TCL 43S405 scored 86 and the VIZIO D40D1 scored 83.

Four Months Newer

The Samsung Series 7 UN43NU7100 was released two years later than the LG 49UF6400, released 11 months later than the Sony XBR49X800G, released four months later than the TCL 43S405 and released two years later than the VIZIO D40D1

User Reviews Are Moderately Better

Based on 3,208 user reviews, the average review score of the Samsung Series 7 UN43NU7100 is 93%, however the average rating of the TCL 43S405 is 91% (based on 812 reviews).

Based on 3,209 reviews, the average review score of the Samsung Series 7 UN43NU7100 is 93%, however the average rating of the TCL 43S405 is 91% (based on 812 reviews).

More Customers Recommend it

90.8% of 3,226 customers recommend the Samsung Series 7 UN43NU7100, whereas only 87.1% of 822 customers recommend the TCL 43S405.

13 Reasons Against for Choosing the Samsung Series 7 UN43NU7100

6.5" Smaller Display Diagonal

The Samsung Series 7 UN43NU7100 is a 42.5 TV. That's 6.5" smaller than the LG 49UF6400 (49"), 6" smaller than the Sony XBR49X800G (48.5"), 0.5" smaller than the TCL 43S405 (43") and 3" 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.

A Little Thicker

Samsung Series 7 UN43NU7100 is 58.42 thick, but the LG 49UF6400 is an 81.5mm thick TV (23.08mm thicker), the Sony XBR49X800G is a 57mm thick TV (1.42mm thinner), the TCL 43S405 is a 73.6mm thick TV (15.18mm thicker) and the VIZIO D40D1 is a 68.07mm thick TV (9.65mm 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 Samsung Series 7 UN43NU7100 is not 3D (As do the the LG 49UF6400, the Sony XBR49X800G and the VIZIO D40D1), however the TCL 43S405 is. More ...

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

3D technology has become increasingly popular as the amount of 3D film and TV content has increased dramatically in recent years. All 3D TVs will also display regular 2D content and most will allow you to switch on and off the 3D effect on 3D content. 3D compatible TVs allow you to watch 3D content. For most TVs you will need to wear special glasses to see the 3D effect.

17% Slower High Frequency Rate

The Samsung Series 7 UN43NU7100 has a high frequency rate of 50. That's 10Hz slower 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.

$23 More Expensive

The Samsung Series 7 UN43NU7100 is more expensive than the TCL 43S405 by $23.

Less Retailers

Only 2 sellers sells the Samsung Series 7 UN43NU7100, whereas 3 shops sell the LG 49UF6400 and 9 stores sell the Sony XBR49X800G. More ...

Smaller numbers of retailers reduces the price competition amongst retailers for this TV and also reduces the chances of the product remaining in stock.
50% Higher Running Costs Over Five Years

The Samsung Series 7 UN43NU7100 costs $79 to run which is $17 more than the TCL 43S405 and $26 more than the VIZIO D40D1 over five years. Show assumptions.

Worse Brand

Samsung TVs have an average rating of only 94.4%, whereas LG has an average rating of 95%.

A Worse Size

On average reviewers thought the Samsung Series 7 UN43NU7100 was a worse size.

Less Thoughtfully Designed

Comparing the product reviews on average people thought the Samsung Series 7 UN43NU7100 was less thoughtfully designed.

Harder to Use

Our analysis of the Samsung Series 7 UN43NU7100 reviews indicates that more reviewers thought the Samsung Series 7 UN43NU7100 was harder to use.

Has Worse Technical Features

On average reviewers thought the Samsung Series 7 UN43NU7100 has worse technical features.

A Worse Smart TV

Comparing the product reviews on average people thought the Samsung Series 7 UN43NU7100 was a worse smart TV.

7 Reasons For for Choosing the LG 49UF6400

17% Larger Display Diagonal

The LG 49UF6400 has a display diagonal of 49, however the Samsung Series 7 UN43NU7100 is only a 42.5" TV (6.5" smaller), the Sony XBR49X800G is only a 48.5" TV (0.5" smaller), the TCL 43S405 is only a 43" TV (6" smaller) and the VIZIO D40D1 is only a 39.5" TV (9.5" 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.

4W Higher RMS Rated Power

The LG 49UF6400 is a 20 RMS rated power TV, and so do the Samsung Series 7 UN43NU7100 and the Sony XBR49X800G. That's 4W higher than the VIZIO D40D1 (16W). 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.

Wi-Fi

The LG 49UF6400 supports Wi-Fi, and so do the Samsung Series 7 UN43NU7100, the Sony XBR49X800G and the VIZIO D40D1, however the TCL 43S405 does not. 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 LG 49UF6400 has an ethernet port (as do the Samsung Series 7 UN43NU7100, the Sony XBR49X800G and the VIZIO D40D1), but the TCL 43S405 does not have this feature. 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.

Wi-Fi Direct

The LG 49UF6400 supports Wi-Fi Direct (as does the Samsung Series 7 UN43NU7100), whereas the Sony XBR49X800G, the TCL 43S405 and the VIZIO D40D1 do not support this feature. More ...

Wi-Fi Direct is a system to allow your TV to connect directly to other device without requiring a wireless router as a go-between.

Wi-Fi Direct is helpful on a TV because it allows a TV to connect to another device (such as a computer or phone) directly, meaning there is far less setup required - the devices just need to be 'paired' (normally at a press of a button) and the y can transfer data between each other. This is extremely useful for streaming media onto your TV from a computer or phone.

A Bit Better User Reviews

7 Reasons Against for Choosing the LG 49UF6400

24.5mm Thicker

The LG 49UF6400 is an 81.5 thick TV. That's 23.08mm thicker than the Samsung Series 7 UN43NU7100 (58.42mm), 24.5mm thicker than the Sony XBR49X800G (57mm), 7.9mm thicker than the TCL 43S405 (73.6mm) and 13.43mm 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.

Not 3D

The LG 49UF6400 is not 3D (As do the the Samsung Series 7 UN43NU7100, the Sony XBR49X800G and the VIZIO D40D1), but the TCL 43S405 is. More ...

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

3D technology has become increasingly popular as the amount of 3D film and TV content has increased dramatically in recent years. All 3D TVs will also display regular 2D content and most will allow you to switch on and off the 3D effect on 3D content. 3D compatible TVs allow you to watch 3D content. For most TVs you will need to wear special glasses to see the 3D effect.

Worse Kagoo Score

The LG 49UF6400 has received a Kagoo Score of 86, but the Samsung Series 7 UN43NU7100 scored 88.

More Expensive by $160

The LG 49UF6400 is $137 more expensive than the Samsung Series 7 UN43NU7100, $160 more expensive than the TCL 43S405 and $98 more expensive than the VIZIO D40D1.

Not As Many Stockists

The LG 49UF6400 is only stocked by 3 shops, however the Sony XBR49X800G is stocked by 9 stores. 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 Two Years

The LG 49UF6400 is two years older than the Samsung Series 7 UN43NU7100, 18 months older than the Sony XBR49X800G, two years older than the TCL 43S405 and four months older than the VIZIO D40D1.

Higher Running Costs Over Five Years by $41

The running costs over five years of the LG 49UF6400 are $94 which is $15 more than the Samsung Series 7 UN43NU7100, $32 more than the TCL 43S405 and $41 more than the VIZIO D40D1. Show assumptions.

The LG 49UF6400 is 1,108mm wide, 81.5mm tall, 657mm thick and weighs 1.2kg.

14 Reasons Against for Choosing the TCL 43S405

13% Smaller Display Diagonal

‘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.

10 Reasons For for Choosing the Sony XBR49X800G

Thinner

The Sony XBR49X800G is a 57 thick TV. That's 24.5mm thinner than the LG 49UF6400 (81.5mm), 1.42mm thinner than the Samsung Series 7 UN43NU7100 (58.42mm), 16.6mm thinner than the TCL 43S405 (73.6mm) and 11.07mm thinner than the VIZIO D40D1 (68.07mm). 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, and so does the Samsung Series 7 UN43NU7100, whereas the LG 49UF6400, the TCL 43S405 and the VIZIO D40D1 do not. 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) (as does the Samsung Series 7 UN43NU7100), but the LG 49UF6400, the TCL 43S405 and the VIZIO D40D1 do not feature this benefit. 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 Sony XBR49X800G features local dimming, whereas the LG 49UF6400, the Samsung Series 7 UN43NU7100, the TCL 43S405 and the VIZIO D40D1 do not. 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.

Wi-Fi

The Sony XBR49X800G supports Wi-Fi, and so do the LG 49UF6400, the Samsung Series 7 UN43NU7100 and the VIZIO D40D1, however the TCL 43S405 does not. 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 Sony XBR49X800G supports Bluetooth, whereas the LG 49UF6400, the Samsung Series 7 UN43NU7100, the TCL 43S405 and the VIZIO D40D1 do not. 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 Sony XBR49X800G has an ethernet port (as do the LG 49UF6400, the Samsung Series 7 UN43NU7100 and the VIZIO D40D1), but the TCL 43S405 does not have this feature. 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 Sony XBR49X800G supports Miracast, whereas the LG 49UF6400, the Samsung Series 7 UN43NU7100, the TCL 43S405 and the VIZIO D40D1 do not. 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.

More Shops Are Selling it

A greater number of sellers increases the chances of the product remaining in stock and also increases the price competition amongst retailers for this TV.

4 Reasons For for Choosing the VIZIO D40D1

Faster High Frequency Rate

VIZIO D40D1 is 60 refresh rate, but the Samsung Series 7 UN43NU7100 is only a 50Hz refresh rate TV (10Hz slower). 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.

Wi-Fi

The VIZIO D40D1 supports Wi-Fi, and so do the LG 49UF6400, the Samsung Series 7 UN43NU7100 and the Sony XBR49X800G, however the TCL 43S405 does not. 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 (as do the LG 49UF6400, the Samsung Series 7 UN43NU7100 and the Sony XBR49X800G), but the TCL 43S405 does not have this feature. 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.

$44 Cheaper to Run Over Five Years

Over five years the VIZIO D40D1 is $41 cheaper to run than the LG 49UF6400, $26 cheaper to run than the Samsung Series 7 UN43NU7100, $44 cheaper to run than the Sony XBR49X800G and $10 cheaper to run than the TCL 43S405. More ...

9 Reasons Against for Choosing the VIZIO D40D1

20% Smaller Display Diagonal

The VIZIO D40D1 has a display diagonal of 39.5, however the LG 49UF6400 is a 49" TV (9.5" larger), the Samsung Series 7 UN43NU7100 is a 42.5" TV (3" larger), the Sony XBR49X800G is a 48.5" TV (9" larger) and the TCL 43S405 is a 43" TV (3.5" larger). 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.

11.07mm Thicker

The VIZIO D40D1 is a 68.07 thick TV. That's 13.43mm thinner than the LG 49UF6400 (81.5mm), 9.65mm thicker than the Samsung Series 7 UN43NU7100 (58.42mm), 11.07mm thicker than the Sony XBR49X800G (57mm) and 5.53mm thinner than the TCL 43S405 (73.6mm). 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 VIZIO D40D1 is not 3D (As do the the LG 49UF6400, the Samsung Series 7 UN43NU7100 and the Sony XBR49X800G), but the TCL 43S405 is. More ...

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

3D technology has become increasingly popular as the amount of 3D film and TV content has increased dramatically in recent years. All 3D TVs will also display regular 2D content and most will allow you to switch on and off the 3D effect on 3D content. 3D compatible TVs allow you to watch 3D content. For most TVs you will need to wear special glasses to see the 3D effect.

4W Lower RMS Rated Power

The VIZIO D40D1 is a 16 RMS rated power TV. That's 4W lower than the LG 49UF6400, the Samsung Series 7 UN43NU7100 and the Sony XBR49X800G (20W). 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.

Worse Kagoo Score

The VIZIO D40D1 has received a Kagoo Score of 83, but the LG 49UF6400 scored 86, the Samsung Series 7 UN43NU7100 scored 88, the Sony XBR49X800G scored 85 and the TCL 43S405 scored 86.

More Expensive by $62

The VIZIO D40D1 is $39 more expensive than the Samsung Series 7 UN43NU7100 and $62 more expensive than the TCL 43S405.

Not As Many Stockists

The VIZIO D40D1 is only stocked by 1 seller, however the LG 49UF6400 is stocked by 3 retailers, the Samsung Series 7 UN43NU7100 is stocked by 2 retailers and 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 Two Years

The VIZIO D40D1 is two years older than the Samsung Series 7 UN43NU7100, 14 months older than the Sony XBR49X800G and 21 months older than the TCL 43S405.

Worse Brand

VIZIO TVs have an average rating of only 88.9%, however LG has an average rating of 95% and Samsung has an average rating of 94.4%.

The VIZIO D40D1 is 913.64mm wide, 68.07mm tall, 540.26mm thick and weighs 7.8kg.
