Reasons For

3 Reasons For
16% larger display diagonal Edit
The LG 65EF950 has a display diagonal of 65", however the Samsung UE55JU6072 is only a 55" TV (10" 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.

Thinner Edit
The LG 65EF950 is a 49.9mm thick TV. That's 0.2mm thinner than the Samsung UE55JU6072 (50.1mm). 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 higher
The LG 65EF950 has an energy efficiency rating of "A+", but the Samsung UE55JU6072 has a rating of "A+".
4 Reasons For
Lower annual energy consumption Edit
The Samsung UE55JU6072 is a 115kWh annual energy consumption TV. That's 51kWh lower than the LG 65EF950 (115kWh). 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.

Lighter Edit
The Samsung UE55JU6072 has a weight of 15.9kg. That's 4kg lighter than the LG 65EF950 (15.9kg). 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.

£49.67 cheaper to run
The Samsung UE55JU6072 only costs £134.83 to run over five years whereas the LG 65EF950 costs £184.50 to run (37% more). Read more
