Weight & Dimensions

Average Depth

At 50.8 millimeters, the 55UF8507 has a fairly average depth compared to most of the other 4K and 8K TVs that have been available for more than two years.

We compared this TV to all the other 50.8mm thick televisions and we think the LG 55UF850 (£579) which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If you are not worried about having a thicker depth then you might want to consider the Samsung UE55HU6900 (50.9mm).
