Reasons For

2 Reasons For
5" larger display diagonal Edit
The LG 70UF770 has a display diagonal of 70", but the Samsung UE65KS8000 is only a 65" 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.

Energy efficiency rating is superior
The LG 70UF770 has an energy efficiency rating of "A+", whereas the Samsung UE65KS8000 has a rating of "A+".
7 Reasons For
40W higher RMS rated power Edit
The Samsung UE65KS8000 has an RMS rated power of 60W, whereas the LG 70UF770 is only a 20W RMS rated power TV (40W 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.

Four loudspeakers Edit
The number of loudspeakers on the Samsung UE65KS8000 is four, but the LG 70UF770 only has two loudspeakers. Read more

The number of loudspeakers is the total number of speakers provided with the TV, either inside the TV casing or as external speakers.

A greater number of speakers will allow for better quality audio and different frequencies. Multiple external speakers will enable to the TV to play surround sound audio.

A lot thinner Edit
The Samsung UE65KS8000 is a 40.8mm thick TV, whereas the LG 70UF770 is a 60mm thick TV (19.2mm 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.
