Reasons For

1 Reason For
Higher energy efficiency rating
The energy efficiency rating of the Hisense LTDN50K220 is "A", but the rating of the LG 55UF860 is "A".
5 Reasons For
5" larger display diagonal Edit
The LG 55UF860 has a display diagonal of 55", but the Hisense LTDN50K220 is only a 50" TV (5" smaller). Read more

The display diagonal of a TV is the most common measure of screen size and is the distance from the top left to the bottom right of the visible part of a TV screen 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. 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.

TVs with a bigger display diagonal allow you to make the most of HD content and are great for watching movies.

3D Edit
The LG 55UF860 is 3D, but the Hisense LTDN50K220 is not 3D. Read more

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. Most 3D TVs require you to wear special 3D glasses in order to view the content in 3D, however some of the newer 3D TVs require no 3D glasses at all. Of those TVs that do require glasses, there are two main types of 3D technology: passive and active. Passive 3D uses glasses similar to those that you wear in the cinema. The glasses have polarised lenses which ensure that the correct image is displayed to each eye. The main advantage of passive 3D is that the glasses are very light and comfortable to wear, but it can result in a less bright image. Active 3D uses battery powered glasses which control active shutters in each lens. These shutters constantly open and close very quickly in sync with two different images that are being displayed by the TV. This ensures that the correct image is displayed to each eye. The main advantage of active 3D is that the image is brighter, however the glasses are heavier and more expensive.

3D compatible TVs allow you to watch 3D content. For most TVs you will need to wear special glasses to see the 3D effect.

1,900Hz faster high frequency rate Edit
The LG 55UF860 is a 2,000Hz refresh rate TV, whereas the Hisense LTDN50K220 is only a 100Hz refresh rate TV (1,900Hz slower). Read more

The refresh rate is also known as the high frequency rate and it affects how smooth motion on the screen appears. The high frequency rate is the number of times that the image on the screen is refreshed per second. A TV with a high frequency rate of 30Hz refreshes the image on the screen once every 30 times every second. 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.

Pair of 3D glasses included Edit
The LG 55UF860 has a pair of 3D glasses included, but the Hisense LTDN50K220 does not.
Energy efficiency rating is superior
