Reasons For

3 Reasons For
26% lower annual energy consumption Edit
The LG 55UH850 is a 124kWh annual energy consumption TV. That's 32kWh lower than the Panasonic TX-58DX802B (156kWh). 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.

18% lighter Edit
The LG 55UH850 has a weight of 19.2kg. That's 3.3kg lighter than the Panasonic TX-58DX802B (22.5kg). 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.

Higher energy efficiency rating
The energy efficiency rating of the LG 55UH850 is "A+", but the rating of the Panasonic TX-58DX802B is "A".
5 Reasons For
6% larger screen size Edit
The Panasonic TX-58DX802B is a 58" TV. That's 3" larger than the LG 55UH850 (58"). 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.

One more HDMI port Edit
The number of HDMI ports on the Panasonic TX-58DX802B is four, but the LG 55UH850 only has three HDMI ports. Read more

The HDMI ports quantity is the number of ports that the TV has that will accept a HDMI cable. HDMI is the most common type of cable used to connect modern TVs, DVD players, games consoles etc.

A greater number of HDMI ports will allow you to permanently connect more devices to the TV and will reduce the need to reach around the back of the TV to unplug and plug in cables when switching between devices.

15.5mm thinner Edit
The Panasonic TX-58DX802B is a 36mm thick TV, whereas the LG 55UH850 is a 51.5mm thick TV (15.5mm 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.

£100 cheaper
The Panasonic TX-58DX802B costs £999.99, whereas the LG 55UH850 is £1,100.00.
Available from 20 shops
The more stores stock this TV, the greater competition amongst stores to keep prices low.
