Reasons For

LG 43UH620 Samsung UE43KU6509
6 Reasons For
Timeshift
The LG 43UH620 supports timeshift, however the Samsung UE43KU6509 does not support timeshift.

'Timeshifting' on a TV is the ability to record movies and programs to be viewed or listened to after the live broadcast.

TVs with timeshifting abilities mean that you don't have to watch programs when they are first broadcast - you can record them and watch them at your leisure.

Read more Read less | Edit
15% Thinner
The LG 43UH620 has a thickness of 81.5mm. That's 11.5mm thinner than the Samsung UE43KU6509 (93mm).

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.

Energy Efficiency Rating is Superior
The LG 43UH620 has an energy efficiency rating of "A+", whereas the Samsung UE43KU6509 has a rating of "A".
Better for Watching Films
The LG 43UH620 is better for watching films than the Samsung UE43KU6509.
When ranking TVs for their suitability to display films, we’ve concentrated on several key attributes. These include contrast ratio and local dimming, which allow the dark colours on the screen to look deeper and richer - helpful for nighttime scenes. Also the screen resolution plays a part - 4K and higher resolutions mean that the image will be clearer and more detailed. Finally the size of the screen is also important - explosions and big dramatic reveals are so much more effective when you don’t have to squint to see the screen!

Better for Watching Sport
The LG 43UH620 is better for watching sport than the Samsung UE43KU6509.
When ranking TVs for sport, we’ve concentrated primarily on the most important attributes. First off, we concentrate on the ‘motion interpolation frequency’. This is important for fast-moving spots, since it reduces the amount of blurring on screen. We also take the size of the screen into account - sports matches are far more immersive when viewed on a giant screen! Finally, we look at display brightness and display resolution, so that the games always appear as fully-detailed and bright.
