Reasons For

4 Reasons For
Two RF ports Edit
The LG 60UH625 is a two RF port TV, whereas the Samsung UE65KU6000 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.

6.1mm thinner Edit
The LG 60UH625 is a 58.5mm thick TV. That's 6.1mm thinner than the Samsung UE65KU6000 (64.6mm). 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.

Moderately lighter Edit
The LG 60UH625 has a weight of 23.3kg, however the Samsung UE65KU6000 is a 23.7kg heavy TV (400g 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.

Two RF inputs Edit
The number of RF inputs on the LG 60UH625 is two, but the Samsung UE65KU6000 only has one RF input.
5 Reasons For
8% larger screen size Edit
The Samsung UE65KU6000 is a 65" TV. That's 5" larger than the LG 60UH625 (65"). 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.

100 bigger picture mastering index (PMI) Edit
The Samsung UE65KU6000 has a picture mastering index (PMI) of 1,300, whereas the LG 60UH625 is only a 1,200 TV (100 smaller).
Two USB 2.0 ports Edit
The Samsung UE65KU6000 is a two USB 2.0 port TV, whereas the LG 60UH625 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.

£50 cheaper
The Samsung UE65KU6000 costs £50 less than the LG 60UH625.
Available from 45 shops
A greater number of stores increases the chances of this TV remaining in stock and also increases the price competition amongst retailers for the product.
