Reasons For

4 Reasons For
A lot higher RMS rated power Edit
The LG 55UF8509 has an RMS rated power of 20W, whereas the LG 60UX960 is only a 10W RMS rated power TV (10W 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.

2mm thinner Edit
The LG 55UF8509 is a 50.8mm thick TV, whereas the LG 60UX960 is a 52.8mm thick TV (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.

PC in (D-Sub) port Edit
The LG 55UF8509 has a PC in (D-Sub) port, but the LG 60UX960 does not. Read more

The socket (port) to receive input from a PC via a D-sub, which is a connector with a characteristic D-shaped metal shield. Also known as a VGA Port.

A D-sub port is needed to connect your TV to older devices and computers that use a VGA connection - generally those made before 2000.

£142.61 cheaper to run
The LG 55UF8509 only costs £130.02 to run over five years whereas the LG 60UX960 costs £272.63 to run (110% more). Read more
2 Reasons For
5" larger display diagonal Edit
The LG 60UX960 has a display diagonal of 60", however the LG 55UF8509 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.

Common interface (CI) slot Edit
The LG 60UX960 has a common interface (CI) slot, but the LG 55UF8509 does not. 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.
