5 Reasons For
One more USB 2.0 port Edit
The Sony KD-55XD8599 is a three USB 2.0 port TV, whereas the LG 55UF772 only has two USB 2.0 ports. 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.

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

Four HDMI ports Edit
The Sony KD-55XD8599 has four HDMI ports, however the LG 55UF772 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.

29% thinner Edit
Sony KD-55XD8599 is 44mm thick. That's 12.7mm thinner than the LG 55UF772 (44mm). 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.

2.7kg lighter Edit
The Sony KD-55XD8599 is a 15.1kg heavy TV, whereas the LG 55UF772 is a 17.8kg heavy TV (2.7kg 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.

Energy efficiency rating is better
The Sony KD-55XD8599 has an energy efficiency rating of "A+", however the LG 55UF772 has a rating of "A+".
