Reasons For

3 Reasons For
OLED technology Edit
The LG 55EG920 features OLED technology, whereas the LG 55UF8607 does not feature OLED technology. Read more

OLED TVs use organic material that creates light when electricity is passed through it. This means that they do not require a back light, unlike standard LED TVs.

OLED TVs have much higher contrast then LED TVs as they have no back light. They also have a fast response rate, rich colours and a wide viewing angle. They are also cheaper to run.

Local dimming Edit
The LG 55EG920 features local dimming, however the LG 55UF8607 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.

5% thinner Edit
The LG 55EG920 has a depth of 48.9mm. That's 2.1mm thinner than the LG 55UF8607 (51mm). 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.
