Reasons For

7 Reasons For
Four loudspeakers Edit
The LG 55UF8607 is a four loudspeaker TV, whereas the Sony KD-55S8005 only has two loudspeakers. Read more

The number of loudspeakers is the total number of speakers provided with the TV, either inside the TV casing or as external speakers.

A greater number of speakers will allow for better quality audio and different frequencies. Multiple external speakers will enable to the TV to play surround sound audio.

One more RF port Edit
The LG 55UF8607 has two RF ports, however the Sony KD-55S8005 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.

28% lower annual energy consumption Edit
The LG 55UF8607 is a 123kWh annual energy consumption TV. That's 34kWh lower than the Sony KD-55S8005 (157kWh). 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.

Vastly thinner Edit
The LG 55UF8607 has a thickness of 51mm, however the Sony KD-55S8005 is a 99mm thick TV (48mm 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.

Lighter Edit
LG 55UF8607 is 19.3kg heavy. That's 3.6kg lighter than the Sony KD-55S8005 (22.9kg). 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.

Cheaper to run by £47.68
The LG 55UF8607 is £47.68 cheaper to run than the Sony KD-55S8005 over five years. Read more
Superior energy efficiency rating
The energy efficiency rating of the LG 55UF8607 is "A+", whereas the rating of the Sony KD-55S8005 is "A".
4 Reasons For
Common interface plus Edit
The Sony KD-55S8005 supports common interface plus, however the LG 55UF8607 does not support common interface plus.
One more composite video in port Edit
The number of composite video in ports on the Sony KD-55S8005 is two, but the LG 55UF8607 only has one composite video in port. Read more

A composite video port is mainly used for connecting older devices to the TV, such as older video cameras or video recorders. Composite video connections can only display images up to a resolutionsof 640 x 480 pixels so the quality of image displayed via a composite video connection will be quite low.

Multiple composite video ports will allow you to connect more than one older video device. However it is very unlikely that you will use the composite video port at all.

One more USB 2.0 port Edit
The number of USB 2.0 ports on the Sony KD-55S8005 is three, but the LG 55UF8607 only has two USB 2.0 ports. 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 Sony KD-55S8005 is a four HDMI port TV, whereas the LG 55UF8607 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.
