Reasons For

2 Reasons For
3D Edit
The LG 55EF9500 is a 3D TV (as is the LG 65EG9600), however the LG OLED55B6 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.

User reviews are appreciably better
Based on 2 user reviews, the LG 55EF9500 has an average review score of 90%, but the LG 65EG9600 has an average rating of 80% (based on 1 review).
2 Reasons For
15% larger display diagonal 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

‘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.

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

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

Cheaper by $379
The LG OLED55B6 costs $379 less than the LG 55EF9500 and costs $779 less than the LG 65EG9600.
16 shops are selling it
A greater number of shops increases the chances of the product remaining in stock and also increases the price competition amongst retailers for this TV.

Reasons Against

7 Reasons Against
18% smaller display diagonal Edit
The LG 55EF9500 is a 55" TV, and so does the LG OLED55B6. That's 9.5" smaller than the LG 65EG9600 (55"). Read more

Only two loudspeakers Edit
The number of loudspeakers on the LG 55EF9500 is two, and so does the LG 65EG9600, but the LG OLED55B6 only has four 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.

Moderately thicker Edit
The LG 55EF9500 is a 50.8mm thick TV (as does the LG 65EG9600), whereas the LG OLED55B6 is a 48.6mm thick TV (2.2mm thinner). 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.

$379 more expensive
The LG 55EF9500 is more expensive than the LG OLED55B6 by $379.
Not as many stockists
Only 1 store sell the LG 55EF9500, however 5 shops sell the LG 65EG9600 and 17 shops sell the LG OLED55B6. Read more
Smaller numbers of retailers reduces the chances of this TV remaining in stock and also reduces the price competition amongst retailers for the product.
Eight months older
The LG 55EF9500 is older than the LG OLED55B6 by eight months.
