Reasons For

4 Reasons For
Larger screen size Edit
The Cello C58238 is a 58" TV. That's 3" larger than the LG 55UG870 (55"). 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.

Quite thinner Edit
The Cello C58238 has a thickness of 92mm, however the LG 55UG870 is a 98mm thick TV (6mm 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.

£1,109 cheaper
The Cello C58238 is £1,109.49 cheaper than the LG 55UG870.
Available from 15 shops
A greater number of retailers increases the price competition amongst retailers for this TV and also increases the chances of the product remaining in stock.
7 Reasons For
4W higher RMS rated power Edit
The LG 55UG870 has an RMS rated power of 20W, whereas the Cello C58238 is only a 16W RMS rated power TV (4W lower). Read more
