6 Reasons For for Choosing the Samsung UN65MU7000

16.5" Larger Display Diagonal

The Samsung UN65MU7000 has a display diagonal of 65", whereas the LG OLED55B7A, the LG OLED55B8PUA and the LG OLED55E7 are all only 55" TVs (10" smaller) and the Samsung UN49KU7000 is only a 48.5" TV (16.5" smaller). 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 are viewing from a distance of 6ft (72 inches) you would need a TV display diagonal of 60 inches.

Game Mode

The Samsung UN65MU7000 has a game mode (as does the LG OLED55B8PUA), but the LG OLED55B7A, the LG OLED55E7 and the Samsung UN49KU7000 do not have this feature. More ...

'Game Mode' on a TV is a specialist mode that scales down the graphical fidelity of the video in order to free up processing power for response time.

In effect this trades slightly worse graphical capabilities for lessened input lag, meaning a smoother, more responsive experience when gaming.

Local Dimming

The Samsung UN65MU7000 features local dimming, and so do the LG OLED55B7A, the LG OLED55B8PUA and the LG OLED55E7, but the Samsung UN49KU7000 does not. More ...

'Local Dimming' on a TV is a function that dims certain sections of the backlight to control the level of light/color intensity in a given part of the screen.

Local dimming can be used to make blacks on the screen appear darker and richer by removing the backlight behind them.

Better Kagoo Score

The Samsung UN65MU7000 has received a Kagoo Score of 82, however the LG OLED55B7A scored 77, the LG OLED55B8PUA scored 81 and the LG OLED55E7 scored 79.

More 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.

More Customers Recommend It

93.8% of 192 customers recommend the Samsung UN65MU7000, whereas only 66.1% of 109 customers recommend the LG OLED55E7.

10 Reasons Against for Choosing the Samsung UN65MU7000

Thicker

Samsung UN65MU7000 is 53mm thick. That's 6.1mm thicker than the LG OLED55B7A and the LG OLED55B8PUA (46.9mm) and 2.88mm thinner than the LG OLED55E7 and the Samsung UN49KU7000 (55.88mm). More ...

The thickness of a 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.

Lower RMS Rated Power

The Samsung UN65MU7000 is a 20W RMS rated power TV, and so does the Samsung UN49KU7000. That's 20W lower than the LG OLED55B7A and the LG OLED55B8PUA (40W) and 40W lower than the LG OLED55E7 (60W). 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.

Does Not Feature OLED Technology

The Samsung UN65MU7000 does not feature OLED technology (As does the the Samsung UN49KU7000), but the LG OLED55B7A, the LG OLED55B8PUA and the LG OLED55E7 do. More ...

OLED TVs use organic material that creates light when electricity is passed through it. This means that they do not require a back light, unlike standard LED TVs.

OLED TVs have much higher contrast than LED TVs as they have no back light. They also have a fast response rate, rich colours and a wide viewing angle.

More Expensive by $699

The Samsung UN65MU7000 is $30 more expensive than the LG OLED55B8PUA and $699 more expensive than the Samsung UN49KU7000.

Older by Seven Months

The Samsung UN65MU7000 is seven months older than the LG OLED55B7A and four months older than the LG OLED55B8PUA.

Higher Running Costs Over Five Years by $167

The running costs of the Samsung UN65MU7000 are $251 which is $132 more than the LG OLED55B7A, $132 more than the LG OLED55B8PUA and $167 more than the Samsung UN49KU7000 over five years. Show assumptions.

12 Less Awards

The Samsung UN65MU7000 has only received 1 award, whereas the LG OLED55E7 has received 13 awards.

Expert Review Rating is Considerably Worse

The Samsung UN65MU7000's average expert score is only 76%, however the LG OLED55E7's is 91% (based on 34 reviews).

User Review Rating is Marginally Worse

The Samsung UN65MU7000's average user score is 95%, however the LG OLED55E7's is 97% (based on 75 reviews).

Worse Brand

Samsung TVs have an average rating of only 94.9%, whereas LG has an average rating of 95%.

The cheapest price that we could find for the UN65MU7000 in the US is $1,329.00 but in total we found only 2 prices for it.

11 Reasons For for Choosing the LG OLED55E7

Built-in Subwoofer

The LG OLED55E7 has a built-in subwoofer, and so does the LG OLED55B8PUA, but the LG OLED55B7A, the Samsung UN49KU7000 and the Samsung UN65MU7000 do not. More ...

A subwoofer is a specialised bass speaker for your TV, designed to provide punchy and powerful low notes for music and movies. Alternatively, an underground dog.

A built-in subwoofer will give your TV's sound system a serious boost on the low end bass notes. This will be best experienced in the bangs, thumps and explosions of movies, or in bass-heavy music.

A Lot Higher RMS Rated Power

The LG OLED55E7 has an RMS rated power of 60W, whereas the LG OLED55B7A and the LG OLED55B8PUA are both only 40W RMS rated power TVs (20W lower) and the Samsung UN49KU7000 and the Samsung UN65MU7000 are both only 20W RMS rated power TVs (40W lower). 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.

Smartphone Remote App

The LG OLED55E7 has a smartphone remote app, and so do the LG OLED55B7A and the LG OLED55B8PUA, but the Samsung UN49KU7000 and the Samsung UN65MU7000 do not. More ...

'Smartphone Remote' states whether the TV has the capability to be controlled using your smartphone, acting as a surrogate remote. This will usually require the installation of an app onto your phone.

Using your smartphone as a remote is helpful because it means that you don't have to use the official remote to control the TV - your smartphone will work instead. Helpful since you will quite often already have it in your pocket!

Local Dimming

The LG OLED55E7 features local dimming (as do the LG OLED55B7A, the LG OLED55B8PUA and the Samsung UN65MU7000), whereas the Samsung UN49KU7000 does not feature this benefit. More ...

'Local Dimming' on a TV is a function that dims certain sections of the backlight to control the level of light/color intensity in a given part of the screen.

Local dimming can be used to make blacks on the screen appear darker and richer by removing the backlight behind them.

Miracast

The LG OLED55E7 supports Miracast (as do the LG OLED55B7A and the LG OLED55B8PUA), whereas the Samsung UN49KU7000 and the Samsung UN65MU7000 do not support this feature. More ...

Miracast is a peer-to-peer wireless screencasting standard formed via Wi-Fi Direct connections in a manner similar to Bluetooth.

TVs with Miracast can use it to stream media from computers and mobile phones at very high quality without the need to attach cables first, making the whole process far easier.

Desktop Stand Included

The LG OLED55E7 has a desktop stand included, and so do the LG OLED55B7A and the LG OLED55B8PUA, but the Samsung UN49KU7000 and the Samsung UN65MU7000 do not. More ...

Whether the TV has a desktop stand included with the purchase.

A desktop stand allows you to mount the TV on a desk or table for easy viewing. Without one, you'll have to either mount the TV on a wall or buy a stand at additional expense.

OLED Technology

The LG OLED55E7 features OLED technology, and so do the LG OLED55B7A and the LG OLED55B8PUA, but the Samsung UN49KU7000 and the Samsung UN65MU7000 do not. More ...

OLED TVs use organic material that creates light when electricity is passed through it. This means that they do not require a back light, unlike standard LED TVs.

OLED TVs have much higher contrast than LED TVs as they have no back light. They also have a fast response rate, rich colours and a wide viewing angle.

13 More Awards

The LG OLED55E7 has received 13 awards, however the LG OLED55B7A has received no awards, the LG OLED55B8PUA has received no awards, the Samsung UN49KU7000 has received no awards and the Samsung UN65MU7000 has received 1 award.

Expert Reviews Are a Lot Better

The average expert review score of the LG OLED55E7 is 91% based on 34 reviews, but the average rating of the Samsung UN65MU7000 is 76% (based on 1 review).

User Reviews Are Marginally Better

The average user review score of the LG OLED55E7 is 97% based on 75 reviews, but the average rating of the Samsung UN65MU7000 is 95% (based on 191 reviews).

Better Brand

LG TVs have an average rating of 95%, however Samsung only has an average rating of 94.9%.

7 Reasons Against for Choosing the LG OLED55E7

16% Smaller Display Diagonal

The LG OLED55E7 is a 55" TV, and so do the LG OLED55B7A and the LG OLED55B8PUA. That's 6.5" larger than the Samsung UN49KU7000 (48.5") and 10" smaller than the Samsung UN65MU7000 (65"). 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 are viewing from a distance of 6ft (72 inches) you would need a TV display diagonal of 60 inches.

9.2mm Thicker

The LG OLED55E7 is a 55.8mm thick TV, whereas the LG OLED55B7A and the LG OLED55B8PUA are both 46.9mm thick TVs (8.9mm thinner), the Samsung UN49KU7000 is a 55.88mm thick TV (0.080000000000005mm thicker) and the Samsung UN65MU7000 is a 53mm thick TV (2.8mm thinner). More ...

The thickness of a 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.

Worse Kagoo Score

The LG OLED55E7 has received a Kagoo Score of 79, but the LG OLED55B8PUA scored 81, the Samsung UN49KU7000 scored 82 and the Samsung UN65MU7000 scored 82.

$1,469 More Expensive

The LG OLED55E7 is more expensive than the LG OLED55B8PUA by $800, more expensive than the Samsung UN49KU7000 by $1,469 and more expensive than the Samsung UN65MU7000 by $770.

Not As Many Stockists

Only 1 shop sell the LG OLED55E7, however 2 sellers sell the Samsung UN65MU7000. More ...

Smaller numbers of stores reduces the chances of this TV remaining in stock and also reduces the price competition amongst retailers for the product.
Over One Year Older

The LG OLED55E7 is older than the LG OLED55B7A by 15 months, older than the LG OLED55B8PUA by one year and older than the Samsung UN65MU7000 by eight months.

10 Reasons For for Choosing the LG OLED55B7A

Thinner

LG OLED55B7A is 46.6mm thick. That's 0.3mm thinner than the LG OLED55B8PUA (46.9mm), 9.28mm thinner than the LG OLED55E7 and the Samsung UN49KU7000 (55.88mm) and 6.4mm thinner than the Samsung UN65MU7000 (53mm). More ...

The thickness of a 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.

Timeshift

The LG OLED55B7A supports timeshift, and so does the LG OLED55B8PUA, but the LG OLED55E7, the Samsung UN49KU7000 and the Samsung UN65MU7000 do not. More ...

'Timeshifting' on a TV is the ability to record movies and programs to be viewed or listened to after the live broadcast.

TVs with timeshifting abilities mean that you don't have to watch programs when they are first broadcast - you can record them and watch them at your leisure.

Parental Controls

The LG OLED55B7A supports parental controls (as does the LG OLED55B8PUA), but the LG OLED55E7, the Samsung UN49KU7000 and the Samsung UN65MU7000 do not support this feature. More ...

Parental controls on a TV allow users to limit the films and programs that can be viewed on the TV, preventing adults-only content from being viewed by children.

Parental controls are a good way of stopping children accidentally (or totally not-accidentally) watching violent or sexual programs when parents aren't around to stop them.

Smartphone Remote App

The LG OLED55B7A has a smartphone remote app (as do the LG OLED55B8PUA and the LG OLED55E7), however the Samsung UN49KU7000 and the Samsung UN65MU7000 do not have this feature. More ...

'Smartphone Remote' states whether the TV has the capability to be controlled using your smartphone, acting as a surrogate remote. This will usually require the installation of an app onto your phone.

'Local Dimming' on a TV is a function that dims certain sections of the backlight to control the level of light/color intensity in a given part of the screen.

Local dimming can be used to make blacks on the screen appear darker and richer by removing the backlight behind them.

USB Recording

The LG OLED55B7A features USB recording, and so does the LG OLED55B8PUA, however the LG OLED55E7, the Samsung UN49KU7000 and the Samsung UN65MU7000 do not. More ...

A USB recording function on a TV allows you to record live TV onto a USB device.

Recording live TV onto a USB device is a good way to save films and TV programs for later viewing.

Miracast

The LG OLED55B7A supports Miracast, and so do the LG OLED55B8PUA and the LG OLED55E7, but the Samsung UN49KU7000 and the Samsung UN65MU7000 do not. More ...

Miracast is a peer-to-peer wireless screencasting standard formed via Wi-Fi Direct connections in a manner similar to Bluetooth.

OLED TVs use organic material that creates light when electricity is passed through it. This means that they do not require a back light, unlike standard LED TVs.

OLED TVs have much higher contrast than LED TVs as they have no back light. They also have a fast response rate, rich colours and a wide viewing angle.

Better Brand

LG TVs have an average rating of 95%, whereas Samsung only has an average rating of 94.9%.

7 Reasons Against for Choosing the LG OLED55B7A

10" Smaller Display Diagonal

The LG OLED55B7A has a display diagonal of 55" (as do the LG OLED55B8PUA and the LG OLED55E7), whereas the Samsung UN49KU7000 is a 48.5" TV (6.5" smaller) and the Samsung UN65MU7000 is a 65" TV (10" larger). 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 are viewing from a distance of 6ft (72 inches) you would need a TV display diagonal of 60 inches.

Lower RMS Rated Power

The LG OLED55B7A is a 40W RMS rated power TV, and so does the LG OLED55B8PUA. That's 20W lower than the LG OLED55E7 (60W) and 20W higher than the Samsung UN49KU7000 and the Samsung UN65MU7000 (20W). 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.

Does Not Have a Built-in Camera

The LG OLED55B7A does not have a built-in camera, but the LG OLED55B8PUA, the LG OLED55E7, the Samsung UN49KU7000 and the Samsung UN65MU7000 do. More ...

Some new TVs have a built-in camera. This can be used for making video calls or for motion control which allows you to control the TV with your hands.

A camera on your TV allows you to use the TV for video chat services like Skype and may also allow you to control the TV using hand gestures.

Worse Kagoo Score

The LG OLED55B7A has received a Kagoo Score of 77, however the LG OLED55B8PUA scored 81, the LG OLED55E7 scored 79, the Samsung UN49KU7000 scored 82 and the Samsung UN65MU7000 scored 82.

More Expensive by $1,570

The LG OLED55B7A is $901 more expensive than the LG OLED55B8PUA, $101 more expensive than the LG OLED55E7, $1,570 more expensive than the Samsung UN49KU7000 and $871 more expensive than the Samsung UN65MU7000.

Less Retailers

The LG OLED55B7A is only stocked by 1 seller, whereas the Samsung UN65MU7000 is stocked by 2 stores. More ...

Fewer numbers of shops reduces the price competition amongst retailers for the product and also reduces the chances of this TV remaining in stock.
Higher Running Costs Over Five Years by $36

The running costs over five years of the LG OLED55B7A are $119 which is $0 more than the LG OLED55B8PUA and $36 more than the Samsung UN49KU7000. Show assumptions.

The LG OLED55B7A is 1,229mm wide, 708mm tall, 46.6mm thick and weighs 17.2kg.

LG OLED55B7A front view

13 Reasons For for Choosing the LG OLED55B8PUA

Built-in Subwoofer

The LG OLED55B8PUA has a built-in subwoofer, and so does the LG OLED55E7, whereas the LG OLED55B7A, the Samsung UN49KU7000 and the Samsung UN65MU7000 do not. More ...

A subwoofer is a specialised bass speaker for your TV, designed to provide punchy and powerful low notes for music and movies. Alternatively, an underground dog.

A built-in subwoofer will give your TV's sound system a serious boost on the low end bass notes. This will be best experienced in the bangs, thumps and explosions of movies, or in bass-heavy music.

Timeshift

The LG OLED55B8PUA supports timeshift (as does the LG OLED55B7A), however the LG OLED55E7, the Samsung UN49KU7000 and the Samsung UN65MU7000 do not support this feature. More ...

'Timeshifting' on a TV is the ability to record movies and programs to be viewed or listened to after the live broadcast.

TVs with timeshifting abilities mean that you don't have to watch programs when they are first broadcast - you can record them and watch them at your leisure.

Parental Controls

The LG OLED55B8PUA supports parental controls, and so does the LG OLED55B7A, however the LG OLED55E7, the Samsung UN49KU7000 and the Samsung UN65MU7000 do not. More ...

Parental controls on a TV allow users to limit the films and programs that can be viewed on the TV, preventing adults-only content from being viewed by children.

Parental controls are a good way of stopping children accidentally (or totally not-accidentally) watching violent or sexual programs when parents aren't around to stop them.

Smartphone Remote App

The LG OLED55B8PUA has a smartphone remote app, and so do the LG OLED55B7A and the LG OLED55E7, whereas the Samsung UN49KU7000 and the Samsung UN65MU7000 do not. More ...

'Smartphone Remote' states whether the TV has the capability to be controlled using your smartphone, acting as a surrogate remote. This will usually require the installation of an app onto your phone.

Using your smartphone as a remote is helpful because it means that you don't have to use the official remote to control the TV - your smartphone will work instead. Helpful since you will quite often already have it in your pocket!

Game Mode

The LG OLED55B8PUA has a game mode, and so does the Samsung UN65MU7000, however the LG OLED55B7A, the LG OLED55E7 and the Samsung UN49KU7000 do not. More ...

'Game Mode' on a TV is a specialist mode that scales down the graphical fidelity of the video in order to free up processing power for response time.

In effect this trades slightly worse graphical capabilities for lessened input lag, meaning a smoother, more responsive experience when gaming.

Local Dimming

The LG OLED55B8PUA features local dimming (as do the LG OLED55B7A, the LG OLED55E7 and the Samsung UN65MU7000), however the Samsung UN49KU7000 does not feature this benefit. More ...

'Local Dimming' on a TV is a function that dims certain sections of the backlight to control the level of light/color intensity in a given part of the screen.

Local dimming can be used to make blacks on the screen appear darker and richer by removing the backlight behind them.

USB Recording

The LG OLED55B8PUA features USB recording (as does the LG OLED55B7A), whereas the LG OLED55E7, the Samsung UN49KU7000 and the Samsung UN65MU7000 do not feature this benefit. More ...

A USB recording function on a TV allows you to record live TV onto a USB device.

Recording live TV onto a USB device is a good way to save films and TV programs for later viewing.

Noise Reduction

The LG OLED55B8PUA supports noise reduction, whereas the LG OLED55B7A, the LG OLED55E7, the Samsung UN49KU7000 and the Samsung UN65MU7000 do not. More ...

Noise reduction helps reduce intrusive audio and visual noise for a clearer and better viewing experience.

Miracast

The LG OLED55B8PUA supports Miracast (as do the LG OLED55B7A and the LG OLED55E7), however the Samsung UN49KU7000 and the Samsung UN65MU7000 do not support this feature. More ...

Miracast is a peer-to-peer wireless screencasting standard formed via Wi-Fi Direct connections in a manner similar to Bluetooth.

TVs with Miracast can use it to stream media from computers and mobile phones at very high quality without the need to attach cables first, making the whole process far easier.

Picture-in-Picture

The LG OLED55B8PUA supports Picture-in-Picture, whereas the LG OLED55B7A, the LG OLED55E7, the Samsung UN49KU7000 and the Samsung UN65MU7000 do not. More ...

Picture-in-Picture is a special mode for a TV that allows two programs to be shown at the same time, one in a smaller screen overlaid on top of the first.

Picture-in-Picture on a TV is very helpful for browsing the net or taking Skype calls while still watching a movie or TV programme on the main screen.

Desktop Stand Included

The LG OLED55B8PUA has a desktop stand included, and so do the LG OLED55B7A and the LG OLED55E7, whereas the Samsung UN49KU7000 and the Samsung UN65MU7000 do not. More ...

Whether the TV has a desktop stand included with the purchase.

A desktop stand allows you to mount the TV on a desk or table for easy viewing. Without one, you'll have to either mount the TV on a wall or buy a stand at additional expense.

OLED Technology

The LG OLED55B8PUA features OLED technology, and so do the LG OLED55B7A and the LG OLED55E7, whereas the Samsung UN49KU7000 and the Samsung UN65MU7000 do not. More ...

OLED TVs use organic material that creates light when electricity is passed through it. This means that they do not require a back light, unlike standard LED TVs.

OLED TVs have much higher contrast than LED TVs as they have no back light. They also have a fast response rate, rich colours and a wide viewing angle.

LG TVs have an average rating of 95%, but Samsung only has an average rating of 94.9%.

8 Reasons Against for Choosing the LG OLED55B8PUA

Smaller Display Diagonal

The LG OLED55B8PUA is a 55" TV, and so do the LG OLED55B7A and the LG OLED55E7. That's 6.5" larger than the Samsung UN49KU7000 (48.5") and 10" smaller than the Samsung UN65MU7000 (65"). 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 are viewing from a distance of 6ft (72 inches) you would need a TV display diagonal of 60 inches.

0.3mm Thicker

The LG OLED55B8PUA has a thickness of 46.9mm, however the LG OLED55B7A is a 46.6mm thick TV (0.3mm thinner), the LG OLED55E7 and the Samsung UN49KU7000 are both 55.88mm thick TVs (8.98mm thicker) and the Samsung UN65MU7000 is a 53mm thick TV (6.1mm thicker). More ...

The thickness of a 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.

A Lot Lower RMS Rated Power

The LG OLED55B8PUA has an RMS rated power of 40W (as does the LG OLED55B7A), however the LG OLED55E7 is a 60W RMS rated power TV (20W higher) and the Samsung UN49KU7000 and the Samsung UN65MU7000 are both 20W RMS rated power TVs (20W lower). 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.
