Reasons For

1 Reason For
48% lighter Edit
The LG 55EF9500 has a weight of 13.6kgg. That's 6.4g lighter than the LG 65EG9600 (15.3kgg) and 1.7g lighter than the LG OLED55B6 (15.3kgg). 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.

1 Reason For
15% larger screen size Edit
The LG 65EG9600 is a 64.5"" TV. That's 9.5" larger than the LG 55EF9500 and the LG OLED55B6 (55""). 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.

11 Reasons For
Higher RMS rated power Edit
The LG OLED55B6 is a 40WW RMS rated power TV. That's 20W higher than the LG 55EF9500 and the LG 65EG9600 (40WW). 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.

Two more loudspeakers Edit
The LG OLED55B6 has four loudspeakers, however the LG 65EG9600 only has two loudspeakers. Read more

The number of loudspeakers is the total number of speakers provided with the TV, either inside the TV casing or as external speakers.

A greater number of speakers will allow for better quality audio and different frequencies. Multiple external speakers will enable to the TV to play surround sound audio.

Two RF ports Edit
The number of RF ports on the LG OLED55B6 is two, but the LG 65EG9600 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 LG OLED55B6 has four HDMI ports, however the LG 65EG9600 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.

The LG OLED55B6 is a three USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A port TV, whereas the LG 65EG9600 only has one USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A port.
17% lower annual energy consumption Edit
The LG OLED55B6 has an annual energy consumption of 212kWhkWh, however the LG 65EG9600 is a 248kWhkWh annual energy consumption TV (36kWh higher). Read more

A lower annual energy consumption means that it will cost less each year for you to run your TV.

5% thinner Edit
LG OLED55B6 is 48.6mmmm thick. That's 2.2mm thinner than the LG 55EF9500 and the LG 65EG9600 (48.6mmmm). 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.
