100Hz faster refresh rate Edit
The LG 49UH770 has a refresh rate of 200Hz, but the Hitachi 49HBT62A is only a 100Hz refresh rate TV (100Hz slower). Read more

The refresh rate is also known as the high frequency rate and it affects how smooth motion on the screen appears. The high frequency rate is the number of times that the image on the screen is refreshed per second. A TV with a high frequency rate of 30Hz refreshes the image on the screen once every 30 times every second. A TV with a high frequency rate of 60Hz would refresh the image on the screen 60 times every second which means that action scenes would appear smoother.

The high frequency rate is also known as the refresh rate and it affects how smooth motion on the screen appears. Action will appear smoother on TVs with a higher frequency rate.

Three HDMI ports Edit
The number of HDMI ports on the LG 49UH770 is three, but the Hitachi 49HBT62A 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.
