7 Reasons For
A bit larger display diagonal Edit
The LG 55UF850 has a display diagonal of 55", but the LG 55LF561 is only a 50" TV (5" 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.

3D Edit
The LG 55UF850 is 3D, but the LG 55LF561 is not. Read more

‘3D’ describes whether the TV can display 3D movies and programmes. Requires compatible 3D glasses to properly function.

3D technology has become increasingly popular as the amount of 3D film and TV content has increased dramatically in recent years. All 3D TVs will also display regular 2D content and most will allow you to switch on and off the 3D effect on 3D content. 3D compatible TVs allow you to watch 3D content. For most TVs you will need to wear special glasses to see the 3D effect.

Internet TV Edit
The LG 55UF850 supports internet TV, however the LG 55LF561 does not support internet TV. Read more

Internet TVs allow you to access the internet directly through your TV. Connect your TV to your local network though WiFi or an ethernet cable.

Internet TVs let you watch movies and TV on the internet by connecting directly to services such as BBC iPlayer and YouTube without a computer.

Wi-Fi Edit
The LG 55UF850 supports Wi-Fi, but the LG 55LF561 does not. Read more

A Wifi (wireless LAN connection) on your TV means that you can connect your TV directly to your WiFi network.

A wifi connection means that connecting your TV to the net will be easier and can be done without cables.

Ethernet port Edit
The LG 55UF850 has an ethernet port, whereas the LG 55LF561 does not have an ethernet port. Read more

An ethernet port lets you connect the TV directly to your router with an ethernet cable.

An ethernet connection is more reliable than wifi and is useful if you do not have a wiki network or the wifi signal is weak. Depending on the speed of your wifi network and ethernet connection may be faster than wifi which means less buffering when streaming content to the TV.

10% thinner Edit
The LG 55UF850 has a depth of 50.8mm. That's 5mm thinner than the LG 55LF561 (50.8mm). 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.

Energy efficiency rating is superior
The LG 55UF850 has an energy efficiency rating of "A+", whereas the LG 55LF561 has a rating of "A+".
