Reasons For

3 Reasons For

Available from 34 shops

5 Reasons For
9% larger screen size Edit
The LG 60UH850 is a 60" TV. That's 5" larger than the LG 55UH950 (60"). 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.

Lower annual energy consumption Edit
The LG 60UH850 is a 143kWh annual energy consumption TV. That's 12kWh lower than the LG 55UH950 (143kWh). 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.

1.3mm thinner Edit
The LG 60UH850 is a 52.2mm thick TV, whereas the LG 55UH950 is a 53.5mm thick TV (1.3mm 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.

£12.82 cheaper to run
The LG 60UH850 only costs £160.07 to run over five years whereas the LG 55UH950 costs £172.89 to run (8% more). Read more
