Reasons For

4 Reasons For
Common interface connection Edit
The LG 55UF7707 has a common interface connection, but the LG 55UF8507 does not. Read more

A common interface slot provides compatibility with pay-per-view cards.

A common interface slot allows you to install pay per view cards. For example Sky TV sell pay per cards for watching football and boxing and WWE Network sell cards for watching wrestling.

Two RF ports Edit
The LG 55UF7707 is a two RF port TV, whereas the LG 55UF8507 only has one RF port. Read more

RF stands for Radio Frequency and an RF port is an older type of input connector for TVs which is most commonly use for connecting cable TV and satellite TV feeds directly to the TV.

Multiple RF ports will allow you to connect multiple RF feeds to the TV at the same time. For example, if the TV has a built in satellite TV decoder then you could connect 2 different satellite dishes to the TV.

Lighter Edit
The LG 55UF7707 has a weight of 1.8kg, however the LG 55UF8507 is a 19.3kg heavy TV (17.5kg heavier). Read more

The weight is the total weight of the TV excluding all packaging.

A lighter weight TV will be easier to move around and to mount on a wall. Some of the larger, very heavy TVs may require lightweight partition walls to be reinforced before the TV could be mounted.

Energy efficiency rating is higher
The LG 55UF7707 has an energy efficiency rating of "A+", but the LG 55UF8507 has a rating of "A+".
5 Reasons For
3D compatible Edit
The LG 55UF8507 is a 3D compatible TV, however the LG 55UF7707 is not 3D compatible. 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.

Lower annual energy consumption Edit
The LG 55UF8507 is a 117kWh annual energy consumption TV. That's 6kWh lower than the LG 55UF7707 (117kWh). Read more

The annual energy consumption is the total amount of energy that the TV will use over the course of a whole year, given typical usage levels.

A lower annual energy consumption means that it will cost less each year for you to run your TV.

5.9mm thinner Edit
The LG 55UF8507 is a 50.8mm thick TV, whereas the LG 55UF7707 is a 56.7mm thick TV (5.9mm thicker). Read more

The depth of the TV is the thickness of the 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.

£6.41 cheaper to run
The LG 55UF8507 only costs £130.02 to run over five years whereas the LG 55UF7707 costs £136.43 to run (5% more). Read more
Higher energy efficiency rating
The energy efficiency rating of the LG 55UF8507 is "A+", but the rating of the LG 55UF7707 is "A+".
