Samsung DC43J Samsung HG40NE478
5 Reasons For
3" Larger Display Diagonal
The Samsung DC43J has a display diagonal of 43", however the Samsung HG40NE478 is only a 40" TV (3" smaller).

‘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.

4 Reasons For
Game Mode
The Samsung HG40NE478 has a game mode, however the Samsung DC43J does not have this feature.

'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.

Read more Read less | Edit
Picture-in-Picture
The Samsung HG40NE478 supports Picture-in-Picture, whereas the Samsung DC43J does not support this feature.

Picture-in-Picture is a special mode for a TV that allows two programs to be shown at the same time, one in a smaller screen overlaid on top of the first.

Picture-in-Picture on a TV is very helpful for browsing the net or taking Skype calls while still watching a movie or TV programme on the main screen.

Read more Read less | Edit
Voice Control
The Samsung HG40NE478 features voice control, but the Samsung DC43J does not feature this benefit.

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.

Read more Read less | Edit
Desktop Stand Included
The Samsung HG40NE478 has a desktop stand included, whereas the Samsung DC43J does not have this feature.

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.
