Reasons For

6 Reasons For
Marginally larger display diagonal Edit
The LG 55UF680 has a display diagonal of 55", but the Samsung UE50JU6800 is only a 50" TV (5" 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.

Local dimming Edit
The LG 55UF680 features local dimming, however the Samsung UE50JU6800 does not. Read more

This means that LEDs can be controlled individually (or in clusters) to control the level of light/color intensity in a given part of the screen.

9kWh lower annual energy consumption Edit
The LG 55UF680 has an annual energy consumption of 120kWh, whereas the Samsung UE50JU6800 is a 129kWh annual energy consumption TV (9kWh 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.

12% thinner Edit
The LG 55UF680 has a depth of 56.7mm. That's 6.5mm thinner than the Samsung UE50JU6800 (63.2mm). 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 to run by £17.62
Over five years the LG 55UF680 is £17.62 cheaper to run than the Samsung UE50JU6800. Read more
Energy efficiency rating is superior
The LG 55UF680 has an energy efficiency rating of "A+", whereas the Samsung UE50JU6800 has a rating of "A".
3 Reasons For

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.

A lot lighter Edit
