Reasons For

4 Reasons For
3D Edit
The LG 55UF8509 is a 3D TV, but the LG 55UH615 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.

Two USB 2.0 ports quantitys Edit
The number of USB 2.0 ports quantitys on the LG 55UF8509 is two, but the LG 55UH615 only has one USB 2.0 ports quantity. Read more

USB ports are useful for displaying on your TV photos / videos or playing music that is stored on USB key drives. The USB port can also be used for charging devices from your TV (as long as it's switched on), and for installing software updates on the TV.

More USB ports will allow you to connect more USB devices to the TV simultaneously without needing to continuous plug in and unplug cables.

12% thinner Edit
The LG 55UF8509 has a depth of 50.8mm, however the LG 55UH615 is a 56.7mm thick TV (5.9mm 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.

Superior energy efficiency rating
The energy efficiency rating of the LG 55UF8509 is "A+", whereas the rating of the LG 55UH615 is "A+".
5 Reasons For
Three HDMI ports quantitys Edit
The LG 55UH615 is a three HDMI ports quantity TV, whereas the LG 55UF8509 only has two HDMI ports quantitys. Read more

The HDMI ports quantity is the number of ports that the TV has that will accept a HDMI cable. HDMI is the most common type of cable used to connect modern TVs, DVD players, games consoles etc.

A greater number of HDMI ports will allow you to permanently connect more devices to the TV and will reduce the need to reach around the back of the TV to unplug and plug in cables when switching between devices.

A little lower annual energy consumption Edit
The LG 55UH615 has an annual energy consumption of 114kWh, whereas the LG 55UF8509 is a 117kWh annual energy consumption TV (3kWh higher). Read more

The annual energy consumption is the total amount of energy that the TV will use over the course of a whole year, given typical usage levels.

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

Moderately lighter Edit
LG 55UH615 is 17.8kg heavy, but the LG 55UF8509 is a 19.3kg heavy TV (1.5kg heavier). Read more

The weight is the total weight of the TV excluding all packaging.

A lighter weight TV will be easier to move around and to mount on a wall. Some of the larger, very heavy TVs may require lightweight partition walls to be reinforced before the TV could be mounted.

Cheaper to run by £3.20
Over five years the LG 55UH615 only costs £126.82 to run however the LG 55UF8509 costs £130.02 to run (3% more). Read more
Energy efficiency rating is superior
The LG 55UH615 has an energy efficiency rating of "A+", whereas the LG 55UF8509 has a rating of "A+".
