6 Reasons For
24% larger screen size Edit
The LG 65EC970 has a screen size of 65", however the Goodmans GVLEDHD50 is only a 50" TV (15" smaller). Read more

The display diagonal of a TV is the most common measure of screen size and is the distance from the top left to the bottom right of the visible part of a TV screen 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. 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.

TVs with a bigger display diagonal allow you to make the most of HD content and are great for watching movies.

3D compatible Edit
The LG 65EC970 is 3D compatible, however the Goodmans GVLEDHD50 is not. Read more

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. Most 3D TVs require you to wear special 3D glasses in order to view the content in 3D, however some of the newer 3D TVs require no 3D glasses at all. Of those TVs that do require glasses, there are two main types of 3D technology: passive and active. Passive 3D uses glasses similar to those that you wear in the cinema. The glasses have polarised lenses which ensure that the correct image is displayed to each eye. The main advantage of passive 3D is that the glasses are very light and comfortable to wear, but it can result in a less bright image. Active 3D uses battery powered glasses which control active shutters in each lens. These shutters constantly open and close very quickly in sync with two different images that are being displayed by the TV. This ensures that the correct image is displayed to each eye. The main advantage of active 3D is that the image is brighter, however the glasses are heavier and more expensive.

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

One more USB 2.0 port Edit
The LG 65EC970 has two USB 2.0 ports, however the Goodmans GVLEDHD50 only has one USB 2.0 port. Read more

USB ports are useful for displaying on your TV photos / videos or playing music that is stored on USB key drives. The USB port can also be used for charging devices from your TV (as long as it's switched on), and for installing software updates on the TV.

More USB ports will allow you to connect more USB devices to the TV simultaneously without needing to continuous plug in and unplug cables.

Four HDMI ports Edit
The number of HDMI ports on the LG 65EC970 is four, but the Goodmans GVLEDHD50 only has three HDMI ports. Read more

The HDMI ports quantity is the number of ports that the TV has that will accept a HDMI cable. HDMI is the most common type of cable used to connect modern TVs, DVD players, games consoles etc.

A greater number of HDMI ports will allow you to permanently connect more devices to the TV and will reduce the need to reach around the back of the TV to unplug and plug in cables when switching between devices.
