Reasons For

5 Reasons For
40% faster refresh rate Edit
The LG 55EG920 is a 100Hz refresh rate TV. That's 40Hz faster than the Philips 55PFS6909 (60Hz). 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.

One more RF port Edit
The number of RF ports on the LG 55EG920 is two, but the Philips 55PFS6909 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.

14.1mm thinner Edit
LG 55EG920 is 48.9mm thick, but the Philips 55PFS6909 is a 63mm thick TV (14.1mm 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.

Lighter Edit
The LG 55EG920 is a 12.6kg heavy TV. That's 4.4kg lighter than the Philips 55PFS6909 (17kg). 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.
