Reasons For

3 Reasons For
One more RF port Edit
The LG 55UH625 is a two RF port TV, whereas the LG 55UH661 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.

A little thinner Edit
The LG 55UH625 is a 56.7mm thick TV, whereas the LG 55UH661 is a 60.9mm thick TV (4.2mm 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.

Higher energy efficiency rating
The energy efficiency rating of the LG 55UH625 is "A+", but the rating of the LG 55UH661 is "A+".
8 Reasons For
30% bigger picture mastering index (PMI) Edit
The LG 55UH661 is a 1,700 TV. That's 500 bigger than the LG 55UH625 (1,700).
One more USB 2.0 port Edit
The number of USB 2.0 ports on the LG 55UH661 is two, but the LG 55UH625 only has one USB 2.0 port. Read more

More USB ports will allow you to connect more USB devices to the TV simultaneously without needing to continuous plug in and unplug cables.

3kWh lower annual energy consumption Edit
The LG 55UH661 has an annual energy consumption of 111kWh, whereas the LG 55UH625 is a 114kWh annual energy consumption TV (3kWh higher). Read more
