Reasons For

6 Reasons For
12% lower annual energy consumption Edit
The LG 55UH661 is a 111kWh annual energy consumption TV. That's 13kWh lower than the LG 55UH850 (124kWh). 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.

2.7kg lighter Edit
The LG 55UH661 is a 16.5kg heavy TV. That's 2.7kg lighter than the LG 55UH850 (19.2kg). 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.

£501 cheaper
The LG 55UH661 costs £501 less than the LG 55UH850.
Available from 44 shops
A greater number of stores increases the chances of this TV remaining in stock and also increases the price competition amongst retailers for the product.
11% cheaper to run
The LG 55UH661 only costs £123.61 to run over five years but the LG 55UH850 costs £139.24 to run (13% more). Read more
Better energy efficiency rating
The energy efficiency rating of the LG 55UH661 is "A+", however the rating of the LG 55UH850 is "A+".
5 Reasons For
1,000 bigger picture mastering index (PMI) Edit
The LG 55UH850 has a picture mastering index (PMI) of 2,700, but the LG 55UH661 is only a 1,700 TV (1,000 smaller).
A lot higher RMS rated power Edit
The LG 55UH850 has an RMS rated power of 40W, however the LG 55UH661 is only a 20W RMS rated power TV (20W 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.

One more RF port Edit
The LG 55UH850 has two RF ports, however 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.

19% thinner Edit
The LG 55UH850 has a thickness of 51.5mm, however the LG 55UH661 is a 60.9mm thick TV (9.4mm 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.

Superior energy efficiency rating
The energy efficiency rating of the LG 55UH850 is "A+", whereas the rating of the LG 55UH661 is "A+".
