Reasons For

4 Reasons For
Larger screen size Edit
The LG 75UH6550 is a 75"" TV, and so does the Sony XBR-75X850. That's 0.5" larger than the Samsung UN75JU6500 (75""). Read more

The display diagonal of a TV is the most common measure of screen size and is the distance from the top left to the bottom right of the visible part of a TV screen 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. 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.

TVs with a bigger display diagonal allow you to make the most of HD content and are great for watching movies.

40W higher RMS rated power Edit
The LG 75UH6550 has an RMS rated power of 60WW, but the Samsung UN75JU6500 and the Sony XBR-75X850 are both only 20WW RMS rated power TVs (40W 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
LG 75UH6550 is 56mmmm thick, but the Samsung UN75JU6500 is a 66mmmm thick TV (10mm thicker) and the Sony XBR-75X850 is a 79mmmm thick TV (23mm 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.

Available from 12 shops
A greater number of retailers increases the chances of this TV remaining in stock and also increases the price competition amongst retailers for the product.
3 Reasons For
Two RF ports Edit
The Samsung UN75JU6500 has two RF ports, however the Sony XBR-75X850 only has one RF port. Read more

RF stands for Radio Frequency and an RF port is an older type of input connector for TVs which is most commonly use for connecting cable TV and satellite TV feeds directly to the TV.

Multiple RF ports will allow you to connect multiple RF feeds to the TV at the same time. For example, if the TV has a built in satellite TV decoder then you could connect 2 different satellite dishes to the TV.

Four HDMI ports Edit
The Samsung UN75JU6500 is a four HDMI port TV, and so does the Sony XBR-75X850, whereas the LG 75UH6550 only has three HDMI ports. 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.

Cheaper by $1
The Samsung UN75JU6500 is $1.01 cheaper than the LG 75UH6550 and $500.01 cheaper than the Sony XBR-75X850.
4 Reasons For
A bit larger screen size Edit
The Sony XBR-75X850 has a screen size of 75"" (as does the LG 75UH6550), however the Samsung UN75JU6500 is only a 74.5"" TV (0.5" smaller). Read more

The display diagonal of a TV is the most common measure of screen size and is the distance from the top left to the bottom right of the visible part of a TV screen 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. 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.

TVs with a bigger display diagonal allow you to make the most of HD content and are great for watching movies.

Significantly faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Sony XBR-75X850 has a motion interpolation frequency of 960HzHz, whereas the LG 75UH6550 is only a 240HzHz motion interpolation frequency TV (720Hz slower) and the Samsung UN75JU6500 is only a 120HzHz motion interpolation frequency TV (840Hz slower). Read more

The motion interpolation frequency is the frame rate which the TV is able to artificially create by inserting additional frames into the picture between the frames included in the original video source. Motion interpolation technology can sometimes create some unwanted side effects such glitches when the technology suddenly activates during an action scene. Most modern TVs will have an option to switch off the motion interpolation if it is not desired.

A faster motion interpolation frequency will result in smoother action scenes, less motion blur and a more life like image.

Four HDMI ports Edit
The number of HDMI ports on the Sony XBR-75X850 is four, and so does the Samsung UN75JU6500, but the LG 75UH6550 only has three HDMI ports. 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.

12g lighter Edit
The Sony XBR-75X850 has a weight of 34.8kgg, however the LG 75UH6550 is a 46.8kgg heavy TV (12g heavier) and the Samsung UN75JU6500 is a 36.5kgg heavy TV (1.7g 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.

Reasons Against

5 Reasons Against
720Hz slower motion interpolation frequency Edit
The LG 75UH6550 is a 240HzHz motion interpolation frequency TV. That's 120Hz faster than the Samsung UN75JU6500 (960HzHz) and 720Hz slower than the Sony XBR-75X850 (960HzHz). Read more
