Reasons For

5 Reasons For
5" larger screen size Edit
The LG 70UF770 has a screen size of 70", but the Samsung UE65KS8000 is only a 65" TV (5" smaller). Read more

The display diagonal of a TV is the most common measure of screen size and is the distance from the top left to the bottom right of the visible part of a TV screen excluding any frame or border. One of the most important considerations when choosing the right screen size for your TV is the typical distance from which you will be viewing the screen. A good rule of thumb is to multiply the display diagonal by 2.5 to determine the viewing distance. So a 40 inch TV is best viewed from 100 inches away, which is equivalent to 8.3 feet or 2.54m. For home cinema setups and a truly immersive experience this ratio can be reduced to 1.2. This will give a screen size that fills 40 degrees of the viewer's field of vision. So if you viewing from a distance of 6ft (72 inches) you would need a TV display diagonal of 60 inches.

TVs with a bigger display diagonal allow you to make the most of HD content and are great for watching movies.

1,600Hz faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The LG 70UF770 has a motion interpolation frequency of 1,800Hz, however the Samsung UE65KS8000 is only a 200Hz motion interpolation frequency TV (1,600Hz slower). Read more

The motion interpolation frequency is the frame rate which the TV is able to artificially create by inserting additional frames into the picture between the frames included in the original video source. Motion interpolation technology can sometimes create some unwanted side effects such glitches when the technology suddenly activates during an action scene. Most modern TVs will have an option to switch off the motion interpolation if it is not desired.

A faster motion interpolation frequency will result in smoother action scenes, less motion blur and a more life like image.

One more USB 2.0 port Edit
The number of USB 2.0 ports on the LG 70UF770 is two, but the Samsung UE65KS8000 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.

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

A lot lighter Edit
LG 70UF770 is 28.7kg heavy, but the Samsung UE65KS8000 is a 35.9kg heavy TV (7.2kg 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 superior
The LG 70UF770 has an energy efficiency rating of "A+", whereas the Samsung UE65KS8000 has a rating of "A+".
11 Reasons For
40W higher RMS rated power Edit
The Samsung UE65KS8000 has an RMS rated power of 60W, whereas the LG 70UF770 is only a 20W RMS rated power TV (40W 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.

Four loudspeakers Edit
The number of loudspeakers on the Samsung UE65KS8000 is four, but the LG 70UF770 only has two loudspeakers. Read more

The number of loudspeakers is the total number of speakers provided with the TV, either inside the TV casing or as external speakers.

A greater number of speakers will allow for better quality audio and different frequencies. Multiple external speakers will enable to the TV to play surround sound audio.

One more RF port Edit
The Samsung UE65KS8000 is a two RF port TV, whereas the LG 70UF770 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.

One more HDMI port Edit
The number of HDMI ports on the Samsung UE65KS8000 is four, but the LG 70UF770 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.

Two more USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports Edit
The Samsung UE65KS8000 has three USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports, however the LG 70UF770 only has one USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A port.
Lower annual energy consumption Edit
The Samsung UE65KS8000 is a 164kWh annual energy consumption TV. That's 24kWh lower than the LG 70UF770 (164kWh). 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.

A lot thinner Edit
The Samsung UE65KS8000 is a 40.8mm thick TV, whereas the LG 70UF770 is a 60mm thick TV (19.2mm 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.

£655 cheaper
The Samsung UE65KS8000 costs £1,845.00, whereas the LG 70UF770 is £2,499.99.
Available from 35 shops
The more retailers stock this TV, the greater competition amongst retailers to keep prices low.
£19.46 cheaper to run
The Samsung UE65KS8000 is £19.46 cheaper to run than the LG 70UF770 over five years. Read more
Higher energy efficiency rating
The energy efficiency rating of the Samsung UE65KS8000 is "A+", but the rating of the LG 70UF770 is "A+".
