Reasons For

7 Reasons For
Vastly lower annual energy consumption Edit
The LG 55UH661 has an annual energy consumption of 111kWh, however the LOEWE Reference is a 207kWh annual energy consumption TV (96kWh higher). 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.

Thinner Edit
LG 55UH661 is 60.9mm thick. That's 0.1mm thinner than the LOEWE Reference (61mm). 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.

Two times lighter Edit
The LG 55UH661 is a 16.5kg heavy TV, whereas the LOEWE Reference is a 37.8kg heavy TV (21.3kg heavier). 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 by £3,200
The LG 55UH661 costs £3,200 less than the LOEWE Reference.
43 shops are selling it
A greater number of sellers increases the chances of the product remaining in stock and also increases the price competition amongst retailers for this TV.
49% cheaper to run
Over five years the LG 55UH661 only costs £123.61 to run but the LOEWE Reference costs £241.80 to run (96% more). Read more
Energy efficiency rating is better
The LG 55UH661 has an energy efficiency rating of "A+", however the LOEWE Reference has a rating of "B".
2 Reasons For
84% higher RMS rated power Edit
The LOEWE Reference is a 120W RMS rated power TV. That's 100W higher than the LG 55UH661 (120W). 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.

Four HDMI ports Edit
The LOEWE Reference has four HDMI ports, however the LG 55UH661 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.
