Reasons For

5 Reasons For
6" larger screen size Edit
The LG 49UH770 is a 49" TV. That's 6" larger than the Sony KD-43XD8088 (43"). 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 RF port Edit
The number of RF ports on the LG 49UH770 is two, but the Sony KD-43XD8088 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.

Available from 26 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.
5% cheaper to run
The LG 49UH770 is £6.41 cheaper to run than the Sony KD-43XD8088 over five years. Read more
Better energy efficiency rating
The energy efficiency rating of the LG 49UH770 is "A", however the rating of the Sony KD-43XD8088 is "B".
6 Reasons For
Three USB 2.0 ports Edit
The Sony KD-43XD8088 is a three USB 2.0 port TV, whereas the LG 49UH770 only has two USB 2.0 ports. 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.

One more HDMI port Edit
The Sony KD-43XD8088 has four HDMI ports, however the LG 49UH770 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.

Thinner Edit
Sony KD-43XD8088 is 45mm thick, but the LG 49UH770 is a 53.8mm thick TV (8.8mm thicker). Read more

9% lighter Edit
The Sony KD-43XD8088 is a 12.3kg heavy TV. That's 1.1kg lighter than the LG 49UH770 (12.3kg). 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.

£98 cheaper
