4 Reasons For
Larger display diagonal Edit
The LG 43UF680 is a 43" TV. That's 1" larger than the LG 42LF561 (43"). 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.

Smart TV Edit
The LG 43UF680 supports Smart TV, whereas the LG 42LF561 does not.
Wi-Fi Edit
The LG 43UF680 supports Wi-Fi, but the LG 42LF561 does not support Wi-Fi. Read more

Ethernet port Edit
The LG 43UF680 has an ethernet port, whereas the LG 42LF561 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.
