Reasons For

5 Reasons For
Two RF ports Edit
The Samsung UE55KU6470 is a two RF port TV, whereas the Sony KD-55XD7005 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.

1kWh lower annual energy consumption Edit
The Samsung UE55KU6470 has an annual energy consumption of 154kWh, but the Sony KD-55XD7005 is a 155kWh annual energy consumption TV (1kWh higher). 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.

42% thinner Edit
The Samsung UE55KU6470 is a 55.2mm thick TV. That's 22.8mm thinner than the Sony KD-55XD7005 (78mm). 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.

£4.64 cheaper to run
