Reasons For

4 Reasons For
25% faster refresh rate Edit
The LG 49UF840 is a 1,600Hz refresh rate TV. That's 400Hz faster than the LG 49UH620 (1,200Hz). 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.

Two USB 2.0 ports Edit
The LG 49UF840 is a two USB 2.0 port TV, whereas the LG 49UH620 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.

30.5mm thinner Edit
LG 49UF840 is 51mm thick, but the LG 49UH620 is an 81.5mm thick TV (30.5mm 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.

Better energy efficiency rating
The energy efficiency rating of the LG 49UF840 is "A+", however the rating of the LG 49UH620 is "A+".
6 Reasons For
One more RF port Edit
The number of RF ports on the LG 49UH620 is two, but the LG 49UF840 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.

8% lower annual energy consumption Edit
The LG 49UH620 is a 92kWh annual energy consumption TV. That's 7kWh lower than the LG 49UF840 (92kWh). 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.

36% lighter Edit
The LG 49UH620 is an 11.7kg heavy TV. That's 4.1kg lighter than the LG 49UF840 (11.7kg). 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.

Available from 2 shops
A greater number of retailers increases the chances of this TV remaining in stock and also increases the price competition amongst retailers for the product.
7% cheaper to run
The LG 49UH620 is £8.01 cheaper to run than the LG 49UF840 over five years. Read more
Better energy efficiency rating
The energy efficiency rating of the LG 49UH620 is "A+", however the rating of the LG 49UF840 is "A+".
