A lot lower annual energy consumption Edit
The LG 55UH600 has an annual energy consumption of 120kWh, however the Samsung UE55KU6000 is a 154kWh annual energy consumption TV (34kWh 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 55UH600 is 56.7mm thick. That's 6.5mm thinner than the Samsung UE55KU6000 (63.2mm). 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.

58% cheaper to run
Over five years the LG 55UH600 only costs £133.23 to run but the Samsung UE55KU6000 costs £314.30 to run (136% more). Read more

5 Reasons For
Two USB 2.0 ports Edit
The Samsung UE55KU6000 is a two USB 2.0 port TV, whereas the LG 55UH600 only has one USB 2.0 port. Read more

USB ports are useful for displaying on your TV photos / videos or playing music that is stored on USB key drives. The USB port can also be used for charging devices from your TV (as long as it's switched on), and for installing software updates on the TV.

One more HDMI port Edit
The Samsung UE55KU6000 has three HDMI ports, however the LG 55UH600 only has two 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.

2.8kg lighter Edit

£205 cheaper
The Samsung UE55KU6000 costs £205.04 less than the LG 55UH600.
