Reasons For

4 Reasons For
Thinner Edit
LG 79UF860 is 59.5mm thick. That's 9.5mm thinner than the Samsung UE85JU7000 (69mm). 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.

Cheaper by £1,899
The LG 79UF860 costs £1,899.01 less than the Samsung UE85JU7000.
34% cheaper to run
Over five years the LG 79UF860 is £139.41 cheaper to run than the Samsung UE85JU7000. Read more
Energy efficiency rating is better
The LG 79UF860 has an energy efficiency rating of "A+", however the Samsung UE85JU7000 has a rating of "A".
2 Reasons For
6" larger display diagonal Edit
The Samsung UE85JU7000 has a display diagonal of 85", whereas the LG 79UF860 is only a 79" TV (6" smaller). Read more

‘Display Diagonal’ is the measure of the size of the TV screen from top-left to bottom-right corner, 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. TVs with a bigger display diagonal allow you to make the most of HD content and are great for watching movies. 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.

67% higher RMS rated power Edit
The Samsung UE85JU7000 is a 60W RMS rated power TV. That's 40W higher than the LG 79UF860 (60W). 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.
