Reasons For

5 Reasons For
A lot thinner Edit
The LG 55LH604 has a depth of 41.5mm, however the LG 58UF830 is a 54.2mm thick TV (12.7mm 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.

Common interface (CI) slot Edit
The LG 55LH604 has a common interface (CI) slot, whereas the LG 58UF830 does not have a common interface (CI) slot. Read more

A common interface slot provides compatibility with pay-per-view cards.

A common interface slot allows you to install pay per view cards. For example Sky TV sell pay per cards for watching football and boxing and WWE Network sell cards for watching wrestling.

Available from 34 shops
A greater number of retailers increases the price competition amongst retailers for this TV and also increases the chances of the product remaining in stock.
Cheaper to run by £56.47
The LG 55LH604 is £56.47 cheaper to run than the LG 58UF830 over five years. Read more
Superior energy efficiency rating
The energy efficiency rating of the LG 55LH604 is "A+", whereas the rating of the LG 58UF830 is "A+".
2 Reasons For
Moderately larger display diagonal Edit
The LG 58UF830 has a display diagonal of 58", but the LG 55LH604 is only a 55" TV (3" 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.

Energy efficiency rating is superior
The LG 58UF830 has an energy efficiency rating of "A+", whereas the LG 55LH604 has a rating of "A+".
