Reasons For

6 Reasons For
1% larger display diagonal Edit
The LG 55UH7700 is a 55" TV, and so do the Samsung UN55KU7000 and the Sony XBR-55X810. That's 0.4" larger than the Samsung UN55KS8000 (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.

50% faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The LG 55UH7700 is a 240Hz motion interpolation frequency TV, and so does the Samsung UN55KS8000. That's 120Hz faster than the Samsung UN55KU7000 and the Sony XBR-55X810 (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. Motion interpolation technology can sometimes create some unwanted side effects such glitches when the technology suddenly activates during an action scene. Most modern TVs will have an option to switch off the motion interpolation if it is not desired.

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

Three USB 2.0 ports quantitys Edit
The LG 55UH7700 has three USB 2.0 ports quantitys, and so do the Samsung UN55KS8000 and the Sony XBR-55X810, however the Samsung UN55KU7000 only has two USB 2.0 ports quantitys. Read more

USB ports are useful for displaying on your TV photos / videos or playing music that is stored on USB key drives. The USB port can also be used for charging devices from your TV (as long as it's switched on), and for installing software updates on the TV.

More USB ports will allow you to connect more USB devices to the TV simultaneously without needing to continuous plug in and unplug cables.

Lighter Edit

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.

One more HDMI ports quantity Edit
The Samsung UN55KS8000 has four HDMI ports quantitys (as does the Sony XBR-55X810), however the Samsung UN55KU7000 only has three 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.

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.

69% cheaper to run
The Samsung UN55KS8000 is $162.85 cheaper to run than the Sony XBR-55X810 over five years. Read more

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.

A lot thicker Edit
Sony XBR-55X810 is 80mm thick, but the LG 55UH7700 is a 53.8mm thick TV (26.2mm thinner), the Samsung UN55KS8000 is a 43.18mm thick TV (36.82mm thinner) and the Samsung UN55KU7000 is a 53.34mm thick TV (26.66mm 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.

3% heavier Edit
The Sony XBR-55X810 is a 17.3kg heavy TV. That's 500g heavier than the LG 55UH7700 (17.3kg), 117.95g lighter than the Samsung UN55KS8000 (17.3kg) and 381g heavier than the Samsung UN55KU7000 (17.3kg). 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.

$4 more expensive
The Sony XBR-55X810 is more expensive than the LG 55UH7700 by $3.63 and more expensive than the Samsung UN55KU7000 by $2.
Less retailers
Only 1 seller sell the Sony XBR-55X810, whereas 13 sellers sell the LG 55UH7700, 8 stores sell the Samsung UN55KS8000 and 7 retailers sell the Samsung UN55KU7000. Read more
Smaller numbers of retailers reduces the price competition amongst retailers for this TV and also reduces the chances of the product remaining in stock.
Five months older
The Sony XBR-55X810 is older than the LG 55UH7700 by five months, older than the Samsung UN55KS8000 by four months and older than the Samsung UN55KU7000 by two months.
224% higher running costs over five years
Over five years the Sony XBR-55X810 costs $235.66 to run which is $162.85 more to run than the Samsung UN55KS8000 and $162.85 more to run than the Samsung UN55KU7000. Show assumptions.
Worse selling
The Sony XBR-55X810 ranks No. 8184 by sales volume, however the LG 55UH7700 ranks No. 7316, the Samsung UN55KS8000 ranks No. 1340 and the Samsung UN55KU7000 ranks No. 389.
