Reasons For

5 Reasons For
A bit larger display diagonal Edit
The LG 60UH770 has a display diagonal of 60", whereas the Samsung UE55JS8500 is only a 55" 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.

6 Reasons For
3D Edit
The Samsung UE55JS8500 is a 3D TV, but the LG 60UH770 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.

Faster high frequency rate Edit
The Samsung UE55JS8500 is a 1,900Hz refresh rate TV. That's 1,700Hz faster than the LG 60UH770 (1,900Hz). Read more

The refresh rate (also known as the high frequency rate) is the number of times that the image on the screen is refreshed per second. It affects how smoothly motion on the screen appears.

Action will appear smoother on TVs with a higher frequency rate: a TV with a high frequency rate of 30Hz refreshes the image on the screen once every 30 times every second. However a TV with a high frequency rate of 60Hz would refresh the image on the screen 60 times every second which means that action scenes would appear smoother.

20W higher RMS rated power Edit
The Samsung UE55JS8500 has an RMS rated power of 40W, however the LG 60UH770 is only a 20W RMS rated power TV (20W lower). Read more

RMS rated power stands for Root Mean Square rated power and it is typically used to measure the power output of the audio element of the TV.

A higher RMS rated power means that the audio system on the TV is more powerful and will be able to play the audio at higher volumes. A higher RMS power may also result in better quality audio at normal volume levels.

Vastly thinner Edit
The Samsung UE55JS8500 has a depth of 30mm, however the LG 60UH770 is a 56.3mm thick TV (26.3mm thicker). 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.

£290 cheaper
The Samsung UE55JS8500 is £290 cheaper than the LG 60UH770.
User reviews are appreciably better
Based on 21 user reviews, the Samsung UE55JS8500 has an average review score of 95%, whereas the LG 60UH770 has an average rating of 76% (based on 11 reviews).
