Reasons For

1 Reason For
50W higher RMS rated power Edit
The LG 77EC980 has an RMS rated power of 70W, whereas the LG 79UG880 is only a 20W RMS rated power TV (50W lower). Read more

RMS rated power stands for Root Mean Square rated power and it is typically used to measure the power output of the audio element of the TV.

A higher RMS rated power means that the audio system on the TV is more powerful and will be able to play the audio at higher volumes. A higher RMS power may also result in better quality audio at normal volume levels.

3 Reasons For
Moderately larger screen size Edit
The LG 79UG880 has a screen size of 79", but the LG 77EC980 is only a 77" TV (2" 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.

Vastly higher subwoofer RMS power Edit
The LG 79UG880 has a subwoofer RMS power of 20W, however the LG 77EC980 is only a unknownW subwoofer RMS power TV (20W lower). Read more

This is a measure of the continuous power (RMS power) produced by a subwoofer.

Two RF ports Edit
The LG 79UG880 has two RF ports, however the LG 77EC980 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.
