4 Reasons For
Marginally larger display diagonal Edit
The Samsung HG55ND677 has a display diagonal of 55", but the LG 55UX340 is only a 54.64" TV (0.36" 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.

Higher RMS rated power Edit
The Samsung HG55ND677 is a 20W RMS rated power TV. That's 10W higher than the LG 55UX340 (20W). 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.

Three HDMI ports quantitys Edit
The Samsung HG55ND677 is a three HDMI ports quantity TV, whereas the LG 55UX340 only has two HDMI ports quantitys. 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.

4.2kg lighter Edit
Samsung HG55ND677 is 13.6kg heavy, but the LG 55UX340 is a 17.8kg heavy TV (4.2kg heavier). Read more

The weight is the total weight of the TV excluding all packaging.
