Reasons For

5 Reasons For
Larger display diagonal Edit
The LG 65UH661 has a display diagonal of 65", but the Samsung UE55KU6000 is only a 55" TV (10" 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.

43kWh lower annual energy consumption Edit
The LG 65UH661 has an annual energy consumption of 111kWh, whereas the Samsung UE55KU6000 is a 154kWh annual energy consumption TV (43kWh higher). Read more

A lower annual energy consumption means that it will cost less each year for you to run your TV.

2% thinner Edit
The LG 65UH661 has a depth of 62mm. That's 1.2mm thinner than the Samsung UE55KU6000 (63.2mm). 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.
