1 Reason For
15% thinner Edit
The LG 55EG9100 has a depth of 87.3mm. That's 12.7mm thinner than the Sony XBR-55X900 (100mm). 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.

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.
