8 Reasons For
Three USB 2.0 ports Edit
The Samsung UE60KS7000 has three USB 2.0 ports, however the LG 60UH850 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.

One more HDMI port Edit
The number of HDMI ports on the Samsung UE60KS7000 is four, but the LG 60UH850 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.

2% lower annual energy consumption Edit
The Samsung UE60KS7000 is a 141kWh annual energy consumption TV. That's 2kWh lower than the LG 60UH850 (141kWh). 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.

8mm thinner Edit
The Samsung UE60KS7000 is a 44.2mm thick TV, whereas the LG 60UH850 is a 52.2mm thick TV (8mm 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.

7% lighter Edit
The Samsung UE60KS7000 has a weight of 22.1kg. That's 1.4kg lighter than the LG 60UH850 (22.1kg). Read more

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.

£304 cheaper
The Samsung UE60KS7000 costs £1,195.00, whereas the LG 60UH850 is £1,499.00.
