Reasons For

6 Reasons For
Larger display diagonal Edit
The LG 65EC970 is a 65" TV. That's 7" larger than the NEC MultiSync E585 (58"). 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 65EC970 is a 3D TV, but the NEC MultiSync E585 is not 3D. 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 65EC970 supports internet TV, however the NEC MultiSync E585 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 65EC970 supports Wi-Fi, but the NEC MultiSync E585 does not support Wi-Fi. 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 65EC970 has an ethernet port, whereas the NEC MultiSync E585 does not. 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.

Electronic Programme Guide (EPG) Edit
The LG 65EC970 has an Electronic Programme Guide (EPG), but the NEC MultiSync E585 does not. Read more

An Electronic Program Guide (EPG) is an application on your TV that lists current and upcoming programs for all channels, and a short summary or commentary for each program.

An EPG is extremely helpful to be able to see what programs are coming up that you may want to watch, and plan your viewing accordingly. They also work in tandem with recording software to set up automatic recording of programs.
