Reasons For

3 Reasons For
5 shops are selling it
A greater number of sellers increases the price competition amongst retailers for the product and also increases the chances of this TV remaining in stock.
Cheaper to run by £93.33
Over five years the LG 49LH590 only costs £57.52 to run however the LG 49UH620 costs £102.78 to run (79% more) and the Samsung UE50KU6000 costs £150.85 to run (162% more). Read more
Energy efficiency rating is superior
The LG 49LH590 has an energy efficiency rating of "A++", whereas the LG 49UH620 has a rating of "A+" and the Samsung UE50KU6000 has a rating of "A".
3 Reasons For
3D Edit
The LG 49UH620 is 3D, but the LG 49LH590 and the Samsung UE50KU6000 are not. Read more

‘3D’ describes whether the TV can display 3D movies and programmes. Requires compatible 3D glasses to properly function.

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

Higher RMS rated power Edit
The LG 49UH620 is a 20W RMS rated power TV, and so does the Samsung UE50KU6000. That's 10W higher than the LG 49LH590 (20W). 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.

Cheaper by £11
The LG 49UH620 is £10.98 cheaper than the LG 49LH590 and £160.89 cheaper than the Samsung UE50KU6000.
4 Reasons For
Larger display diagonal Edit
The Samsung UE50KU6000 is a 50" TV. That's 1" larger than the LG 49LH590 and the LG 49UH620 (50"). 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.

10W higher RMS rated power Edit
The Samsung UE50KU6000 has an RMS rated power of 20W (as does the LG 49UH620), whereas the LG 49LH590 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.

A lot thinner Edit
The Samsung UE50KU6000 is a 63.2mm thick TV, whereas the LG 49LH590 and the LG 49UH620 are both 81.5mm thick TVs (18.3mm 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.

DVI port Edit
The Samsung UE50KU6000 has a DVI port, but the LG 49LH590 does not.

Reasons Against

6 Reasons Against
1" smaller display diagonal Edit
The LG 49LH590 has a display diagonal of 49" (as does the LG 49UH620), but the Samsung UE50KU6000 is a 50" TV (1" larger). Read more
