Reasons For

1 Reason For
Larger screen size Edit
The LG 55EG920 is a 55" TV. That's 5" larger than the Samsung UE50J6250 (50"). 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.

5 Reasons For
Three USB 2.0 ports Edit
The Samsung UE50J6250 is a three USB 2.0 port TV, whereas the LG 55EG920 only has two USB 2.0 ports. Read more

One more HDMI port Edit
The Samsung UE50J6250 has four HDMI ports, however the LG 55EG920 only has three HDMI ports. Read more

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.

Lower annual energy consumption Edit
The Samsung UE50J6250 is a 97kWh annual energy consumption TV. That's 48kWh lower than the LG 55EG920 (97kWh). Read more

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