14 Reasons For for Choosing the Sony XBR43X800H

Higher Display Resolution

The Sony XBR43X800H is 4K, and so are the Samsung UN50NU6900 and the TCL 43S405, which is 4 times the display resolution of the LG 49LF5400 (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.

Auto Volume Leveler

The Sony XBR43X800H has an auto volume leveler, whereas the LG 49LF5400, the Samsung UN50NU6900, the TCL 43S405 and the VIZIO E50D1 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.

A Lot Higher RMS Rated Power

The Sony XBR43X800H has an RMS rated power of 20W (as do the Samsung UN50NU6900 and the VIZIO E50D1), however the LG 49LF5400 is only a 10W RMS rated power TV (10W 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 XBR43X800H supports screen mirroring (as does the Samsung UN50NU6900), however the LG 49LF5400, the TCL 43S405 and the VIZIO E50D1 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.

Smartphone Remote App

The Sony XBR43X800H has a smartphone remote app, and so does the Samsung UN50NU6900, whereas the LG 49LF5400, the TCL 43S405 and the VIZIO E50D1 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!

High Dynamic Range Imaging (HDRI)

The Sony XBR43X800H features High Dynamic Range Imaging (HDRI), and so does the Samsung UN50NU6900, whereas the LG 49LF5400, the TCL 43S405 and the VIZIO E50D1 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.

Wi-Fi

The Sony XBR43X800H supports Wi-Fi (as do the Samsung UN50NU6900 and the VIZIO E50D1), but the LG 49LF5400 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 Sony XBR43X800H supports Bluetooth, however the LG 49LF5400, the Samsung UN50NU6900, the TCL 43S405 and the VIZIO E50D1 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 Sony XBR43X800H has an ethernet port, and so do the Samsung UN50NU6900 and the VIZIO E50D1, whereas the LG 49LF5400 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 Sony XBR43X800H supports Miracast, however the LG 49LF5400, the Samsung UN50NU6900, the TCL 43S405 and the VIZIO E50D1 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.

Wi-Fi Direct

The Sony XBR43X800H supports Wi-Fi Direct, and so does the Samsung UN50NU6900, however the LG 49LF5400, the TCL 43S405 and the VIZIO E50D1 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.

Voice Control

The Sony XBR43X800H features voice control, but the LG 49LF5400, the Samsung UN50NU6900, the TCL 43S405 and the VIZIO E50D1 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 Sony XBR43X800H has a desktop stand included, whereas the LG 49LF5400, the Samsung UN50NU6900, the TCL 43S405 and the VIZIO E50D1 do not. More ...

Whether the TV has a desktop stand included with the purchase.

A desktop stand allows you to mount the TV on a desk or table for easy viewing. Without one, you'll have to either mount the TV on a wall or buy a stand at additional expense.

More Shops Are Selling It

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

8 Reasons Against for Choosing the Sony XBR43X800H

Smaller Display Diagonal

The Sony XBR43X800H is a 43" TV, and so does the TCL 43S405. That's 6.5" smaller than the LG 49LF5400, the Samsung UN50NU6900 and the VIZIO E50D1 (49.5"). 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.

6.2mm Thicker

The Sony XBR43X800H has a thickness of 57mm, however the LG 49LF5400 is a 58.7mm thick TV (1.7mm thicker), the Samsung UN50NU6900 is a 50.8mm thick TV (6.2mm thinner), the TCL 43S405 is a 73.6mm thick TV (16.6mm thicker) and the VIZIO E50D1 is a 75.95mm thick TV (18.95mm 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 Sony XBR43X800H is not 3D (As do the the LG 49LF5400, the Samsung UN50NU6900 and the VIZIO E50D1), whereas 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 Sony XBR43X800H has received a Kagoo Score of 85, whereas the LG 49LF5400 scored 86, the Samsung UN50NU6900 scored 86, the TCL 43S405 scored 86 and the VIZIO E50D1 scored 86.

$298 More Expensive

The Sony XBR43X800H is more expensive than the LG 49LF5400 by $98, more expensive than the TCL 43S405 by $108 and more expensive than the VIZIO E50D1 by $298.

Over Two Years Older

The Sony XBR43X800H is older than the Samsung UN50NU6900 by two years and older than the TCL 43S405 by one year.

More Expensive to Run Over Five Years by 22%

The Sony XBR43X800H costs $79 to run which is $14 more than the LG 49LF5400, $13 more than the TCL 43S405 and $3 more than the VIZIO E50D1 over five years. Show assumptions.

Worse Brand

Sony TVs have an average rating of only 88.6%, but LG has an average rating of 95%, Samsung has an average rating of 93% and VIZIO has an average rating of 88.7%.

The cheapest price that we could find for the XBR43X800H in the US is $548.00 but in total we found only 2 prices for it.

9 Reasons For for Choosing the VIZIO E50D1

Larger Display Diagonal

The VIZIO E50D1 has a display diagonal of 49.5" (as does the Samsung UN50NU6900), but the LG 49LF5400 is only a 49" TV (0.5" smaller) and the Sony XBR43X800H and the TCL 43S405 are both only 43" TVs (6.5" 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.

60Hz Faster High Frequency Rate

The VIZIO E50D1 is a 120Hz refresh rate TV (as does the Samsung UN50NU6900), whereas the LG 49LF5400 is only a 60Hz refresh rate TV (60Hz 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.

34% Higher RMS Rated Power

The VIZIO E50D1 is a 20W RMS rated power TV, and so do the Samsung UN50NU6900 and the Sony XBR43X800H. That's 10W higher than the LG 49LF5400 (10W). 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.

Local Dimming

The VIZIO E50D1 features local dimming, however the LG 49LF5400, the Samsung UN50NU6900, the Sony XBR43X800H and the TCL 43S405 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 VIZIO E50D1 supports Wi-Fi, and so do the Samsung UN50NU6900 and the Sony XBR43X800H, but the LG 49LF5400 and the TCL 43S405 do 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 E50D1 has an ethernet port (as do the Samsung UN50NU6900 and the Sony XBR43X800H), whereas the LG 49LF5400 and the TCL 43S405 do 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.

Better Kagoo Score

The VIZIO E50D1 has received a Kagoo Score of 86, whereas the Sony XBR43X800H scored 85.

Cheaper by $190

The VIZIO E50D1 is $199.99 cheaper than the LG 49LF5400, $450 cheaper than the Samsung UN50NU6900, $298 cheaper than the Sony XBR43X800H and $190 cheaper than the TCL 43S405.

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.

8 Reasons Against for Choosing the VIZIO E50D1

25% Thicker

The VIZIO E50D1 has a thickness of 75.95mm. That's 17.25mm thicker than the LG 49LF5400 (58.7mm), 25.15mm thicker than the Samsung UN50NU6900 (50.8mm), 18.95mm thicker than the Sony XBR43X800H (57mm) and 2.35mm thicker 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.

‘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.

4 Reasons For for Choosing the LG 49LF5400

Noise Reduction

The LG 49LF5400 supports noise reduction, whereas the Samsung UN50NU6900, the Sony XBR43X800H, the TCL 43S405 and the VIZIO E50D1 do not support this feature. More ...

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

Better Kagoo Score

The LG 49LF5400 has received a Kagoo Score of 86, whereas the Sony XBR43X800H scored 85.

Cheaper to Run by $33 Over Five Years

Over five years the LG 49LF5400 only costs $65 to run however the Samsung UN50NU6900 costs $98 to run (52% more), the Sony XBR43X800H costs $79 to run (22% more), the TCL 43S405 costs $66 to run (2% more) and the VIZIO E50D1 costs $76 to run (17% more). More ...

Better Brand

LG TVs have an average rating of 95%, but Samsung only has an average rating of 93%, Sony only has an average rating of 88.6%, TCL only has an average rating of 63.7% and VIZIO only has an average rating of 88.7%.

13 Reasons Against for Choosing the LG 49LF5400

Only Full Hd

The LG 49LF5400 is full hd, but the Samsung UN50NU6900, the Sony XBR43X800H 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.

0.5" Smaller Display Diagonal

The LG 49LF5400 has a display diagonal of 49", but the Samsung UN50NU6900 and the VIZIO E50D1 are both 49.5" TVs (0.5" larger) and the Sony XBR43X800H and the TCL 43S405 are both 43" TVs (6" 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.

12% Thicker

The LG 49LF5400 has a thickness of 58.7mm. That's 7.9mm thicker than the Samsung UN50NU6900 (50.8mm), 1.7mm thicker than the Sony XBR43X800H (57mm), 14.9mm thinner than the TCL 43S405 (73.6mm) and 17.25mm thinner than the VIZIO E50D1 (75.95mm). 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.

60Hz Slower High Frequency Rate

The LG 49LF5400 is a 60Hz refresh rate TV, whereas the Samsung UN50NU6900 and the VIZIO E50D1 are both 120Hz refresh rate TVs (60Hz faster). 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.

50% Lower RMS Rated Power

The LG 49LF5400 is a 10W RMS rated power TV. That's 10W lower than the Samsung UN50NU6900, the Sony XBR43X800H and the VIZIO E50D1 (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.

Not 3D

The LG 49LF5400 is not 3D (As do the the Samsung UN50NU6900, the Sony XBR43X800H and the VIZIO E50D1), whereas 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.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The LG 49LF5400 does not support Wi-Fi, whereas the Samsung UN50NU6900, the Sony XBR43X800H, the TCL 43S405 and the VIZIO E50D1 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.

Does Not Have an Ethernet Port

The LG 49LF5400 does not have an ethernet port, however the Samsung UN50NU6900, the Sony XBR43X800H, the TCL 43S405 and the VIZIO E50D1 do. 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.

More Expensive by $200

The LG 49LF5400 is $10 more expensive than the TCL 43S405 and $200 more expensive than the VIZIO E50D1.

Fewer Sellers

The LG 49LF5400 is only stocked by 1 seller, but the Sony XBR43X800H is stocked by 2 stores and the VIZIO E50D1 is stocked by 2 stores. More ...

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

The LG 49LF5400 is four years older than the Samsung UN50NU6900, 20 months older than the Sony XBR43X800H, three years older than the TCL 43S405 and 13 months older than the VIZIO E50D1.

User Review Rating is Marginally Worse

The average user rating of the LG 49LF5400 is 87%, whereas the average user rating of the Samsung UN50NU6900 is 91% (based on 872 reviews) and the TCL 43S405 is 91% (based on 991 reviews).

Overall Review Rating is Worse

The average overall rating of the LG 49LF5400 is 87%, whereas the average overall rating of the Samsung UN50NU6900 is 92% (based on 872 reviews) and the TCL 43S405 is 91% (based on 991 reviews).

The LG 49LF5400 is 1,103mm wide, 650mm tall, 58.7mm thick and weighs 13.1kg.

20 Reasons For for Choosing the Samsung UN50NU6900

4K

The Samsung UN50NU6900 is 4K (as are the Sony XBR43X800H and the TCL 43S405), but the LG 49LF5400 is only 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 Samsung UN50NU6900 has a display diagonal of 49.5" (as does the VIZIO E50D1), but the LG 49LF5400 is only a 49" TV (0.5" smaller) and the Sony XBR43X800H and the TCL 43S405 are both only 43" TVs (6.5" 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.

34% Thinner

The Samsung UN50NU6900 has a thickness of 50.8mm. That's 7.9mm thinner than the LG 49LF5400 (58.7mm), 6.2mm thinner than the Sony XBR43X800H (57mm), 22.8mm thinner than the TCL 43S405 (73.6mm) and 25.15mm thinner than the VIZIO E50D1 (75.95mm). 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.

A Lot Faster High Frequency Rate

The Samsung UN50NU6900 is a 120Hz refresh rate TV (as does the VIZIO E50D1), whereas the LG 49LF5400 is only a 60Hz refresh rate TV (60Hz 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.

Higher RMS Rated Power

The Samsung UN50NU6900 is a 20W RMS rated power TV, and so do the Sony XBR43X800H and the VIZIO E50D1. That's 10W higher than the LG 49LF5400 (10W). 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 UN50NU6900 supports screen mirroring, and so does the Sony XBR43X800H, however the LG 49LF5400, the TCL 43S405 and the VIZIO E50D1 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.

Smartphone Remote App

The Samsung UN50NU6900 has a smartphone remote app (as does the Sony XBR43X800H), whereas the LG 49LF5400, the TCL 43S405 and the VIZIO E50D1 do not have this feature. 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 Samsung UN50NU6900 has a game mode, however the LG 49LF5400, the Sony XBR43X800H, the TCL 43S405 and the VIZIO E50D1 do not have this feature. 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 UN50NU6900 features High Dynamic Range Imaging (HDRI) (as does the Sony XBR43X800H), whereas the LG 49LF5400, the TCL 43S405 and the VIZIO E50D1 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.

Digital Clean View

The Samsung UN50NU6900 supports Digital Clean View, whereas the LG 49LF5400, the Sony XBR43X800H, the TCL 43S405 and the VIZIO E50D1 do not. More ...

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