Reasons For

3 Reasons For
3D Edit
The LG 65UF8600 is a 3D TV, but the Samsung UN65KU6500 is not 3D. Read more

‘3D’ describes whether the TV can display 3D movies and programmes. Requires compatible 3D glasses to properly function.

3D technology has become increasingly popular as the amount of 3D film and TV content has increased dramatically in recent years. All 3D TVs will also display regular 2D content and most will allow you to switch on and off the 3D effect on 3D content. 3D compatible TVs allow you to watch 3D content. For most TVs you will need to wear special glasses to see the 3D effect.

Faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The LG 65UF8600 is a 240Hz motion interpolation frequency TV. That's 120Hz faster than the Samsung UN65KU6500 (120Hz). 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.

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

Two loudspeakers Edit
The LG 65UF8600 is a two loudspeaker TV, whereas the Samsung UN65KU6500 only has one loudspeaker. 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.

3 Reasons For
0.5" larger display diagonal Edit
The Samsung UN65KU6500 has a display diagonal of 65", but the LG 65UF8600 is only a 64.5" TV (0.5" smaller). Read more

‘Display Diagonal’ is the measure of the size of the TV screen from top-left to bottom-right corner, 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. TVs with a bigger display diagonal allow you to make the most of HD content and are great for watching movies. 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.
