Reasons For

LG 42LB650 LG 49UJ634
5 Reasons For
3D
The LG 42LB650 is 3D, whereas the LG 49UJ634 is not.

‘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.

Read more Read less | Edit
49% Thinner
LG 42LB650 is 54.5mm thick. That's 26.5mm thinner than the LG 49UJ634 (81mm).

The thickness of a 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.

Read more Read less | Edit
30% Cheaper to Run Over Five Years
Over five years the LG 42LB650 is £27 cheaper to run than the LG 49UJ634.
Read more Read less
Energy Efficiency Rating is Better
The LG 42LB650 has an energy efficiency rating of "A+", however the LG 49UJ634 has a rating of "A".
Marginally Better User Reviews
Based on 116 reviews, the LG 42LB650 has an average user review score of 90%, however the LG 49UJ634 has an average rating of 86% (based on 37 reviews).
3 Reasons For
Larger Display Diagonal
The LG 49UJ634 has a display diagonal of 49", but the LG 42LB650 is only a 42" TV (7" smaller).

‘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 are viewing from a distance of 6ft (72 inches) you would need a TV display diagonal of 60 inches.

Read more Read less | Edit
Ethernet Port
The LG 49UJ634 has an ethernet port, whereas the LG 42LB650 does not have an ethernet port.

An ethernet port lets you connect the TV directly to your router with an ethernet cable.

An ethernet connection is more reliable than wifi and is useful if you do not have a wiki network or the wifi signal is weak. Depending on the speed of your wifi network and ethernet connection may be faster than wifi which means less buffering when streaming content to the TV.

More 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.
