Reasons For

1 Reason For
Common interface connection Edit
The LG 79UG880 has a common interface connection, whereas the Samsung UE88JS9500 does not have a common interface connection. Read more

A common interface slot provides compatibility with pay-per-view cards.

A common interface slot allows you to install pay per view cards. For example Sky TV sell pay per cards for watching football and boxing and WWE Network sell cards for watching wrestling.

4 Reasons For
Larger screen size Edit
The Samsung UE88JS9500 has a screen size of 88", but the LG 79UG880 is only a 79" TV (9" smaller). 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.

10W higher subwoofer RMS power Edit
The Samsung UE88JS9500 has a subwoofer RMS power of 30W, however the LG 79UG880 is only a 20W subwoofer RMS power TV (10W lower). Read more

This is a measure of the continuous power (RMS power) produced by a subwoofer.

Higher RMS rated power Edit
The Samsung UE88JS9500 is a 40W RMS rated power TV. That's 20W higher than the LG 79UG880 (40W). Read more

RMS rated power stands for Root Mean Square rated power and it is typically used to measure the power output of the audio element of the TV.

A higher RMS rated power means that the audio system on the TV is more powerful and will be able to play the audio at higher volumes. A higher RMS power may also result in better quality audio at normal volume levels.

One more USB 2.0 port Edit
The number of USB 2.0 ports on the Samsung UE88JS9500 is three, but the LG 79UG880 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.
