4 Reasons For for Choosing the LG 70UK6570PUB

23% Larger Display Diagonal

The LG 70UK6570PUB has a display diagonal of 69.5, however the LG 49SK8000 and the LG 49SM8600PUA are both only 49" TVs (20.5" smaller), the LG OLED55B8PUA is only a 55" TV (14.5" smaller) and the LG SIGNATURE OLED65E8PUA is only a 65" TV (4.5" 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.

Better Kagoo Score

The LG 70UK6570PUB has received a Kagoo Score of 87, but the LG 49SK8000 scored 86, the LG 49SM8600PUA scored 86 and the LG SIGNATURE OLED65E8PUA scored 86.

More Customers Recommend it

91.1% of 225 customers recommend the LG 70UK6570PUB, however only 57.8% of 147 customers recommend the LG SIGNATURE OLED65E8PUA.

Has a Better Price

On average reviewers thought the LG 70UK6570PUB has a better price.

14 Reasons Against for Choosing the LG 70UK6570PUB

Does Not Feature OLED / QLED Technology

The LG 70UK6570PUB does not feature OLED / QLED technology (As do the the LG 49SK8000 and the LG 49SM8600PUA), whereas the LG OLED55B8PUA and the LG SIGNATURE OLED65E8PUA do. More ...

OLED and QLED 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 and QLED 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. They are also cheaper to run.

22.1mm Thicker

The LG 70UK6570PUB is a 69 thick TV. That's 5mm thicker than the LG 49SK8000 (64mm), 5.4mm thicker than the LG 49SM8600PUA (63.6mm), 22.1mm thicker than the LG OLED55B8PUA (46.9mm) and 17.2mm thicker than the LG SIGNATURE OLED65E8PUA (51.8mm). 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.

67% Lower RMS Rated Power

The LG 70UK6570PUB is a 20 RMS rated power TV, and so does the LG 49SM8600PUA. That's 20W lower than the LG OLED55B8PUA (40W) and 40W lower than the LG SIGNATURE OLED65E8PUA (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.

More Expensive by $370

The LG 70UK6570PUB is $370 more expensive than the LG 49SK8000 and $301 more expensive than the LG 49SM8600PUA.

Not As Many Stockists

The LG 70UK6570PUB is only stocked by 6 retailers, however the LG SIGNATURE OLED65E8PUA is stocked by 11 retailers. More ...

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

The LG 70UK6570PUB is two months older than the LG 49SK8000, 14 months older than the LG 49SM8600PUA, 18 months older than the LG OLED55B8PUA and 18 months older than the LG SIGNATURE OLED65E8PUA.

$60 More Expensive to Run Over Five Years

The running costs of the LG 70UK6570PUB are $157 which is $57 more than the LG 49SK8000, $60 more than the LG 49SM8600PUA and $35 more than the LG OLED55B8PUA over five years. Show assumptions.

User Review Rating is Marginally Worse

The LG 70UK6570PUB has an average user score of 93%, but the LG OLED55B8PUA has an average user rating of 96% (based on 964 reviews).

Overall Review Rating is Marginally Worse

The LG 70UK6570PUB has an average overall score of 93%, but the LG OLED55B8PUA has an average overall rating of 96% (based on 1,005 reviews).

A Worse Size

On average reviewers thought the LG 70UK6570PUB was a worse size.

Has a Worse Design

The LG 70UK6570PUB reviewers thought the LG 70UK6570PUB has a worse design.

Harder to Use

Our analysis of the LG 70UK6570PUB reviews indicates that more reviewers thought the LG 70UK6570PUB was harder to use.

Produces Inferior Picture Quality

The LG 70UK6570PUB reviewers thought the LG 70UK6570PUB produces inferior picture quality.

Worse At Producing High Quality Sound

Comparing the product reviews on average people thought the LG 70UK6570PUB was worse at producing high quality sound.

27 Reasons For for Choosing the LG OLED55B8PUA

OLED / QLED Technology

The LG OLED55B8PUA features OLED / QLED technology (as does the LG SIGNATURE OLED65E8PUA), whereas the LG 49SK8000, the LG 49SM8600PUA and the LG 70UK6570PUB do not feature this benefit. More ...

OLED and QLED 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 and QLED 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. They are also cheaper to run.

Thinner

The LG OLED55B8PUA has a thickness of 46.9. That's 17.1mm thinner than the LG 49SK8000 (64mm), 16.7mm thinner than the LG 49SM8600PUA (63.6mm), 22.1mm thinner than the LG 70UK6570PUB (69mm) and 4.9mm thinner than the LG SIGNATURE OLED65E8PUA (51.8mm). 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.

Built-in Subwoofer

The LG OLED55B8PUA has a built-in subwoofer (as does the LG SIGNATURE OLED65E8PUA), whereas the LG 49SK8000, the LG 49SM8600PUA and the LG 70UK6570PUB do not have this feature. 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, and so do the LG 49SM8600PUA and the LG SIGNATURE OLED65E8PUA, however the LG 49SK8000 and the LG 70UK6570PUB 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.

Screen Mirroring

The LG OLED55B8PUA supports screen mirroring, and so do the LG 49SK8000, the LG 49SM8600PUA and the LG SIGNATURE OLED65E8PUA, however the LG 70UK6570PUB does not. More ...

Screen Mirroring on a TV is a system that allows you to view the screen from a computer or mobile phone on your TV.

Screen mirroring on a TV is helpful because it allows you to easily display media and info running on a phone or laptop to a big screen for easy viewing with a minimum of effort.

Parental Controls

The LG OLED55B8PUA supports parental controls (as does the LG 49SM8600PUA), however the LG 49SK8000, the LG 70UK6570PUB and the LG SIGNATURE OLED65E8PUA 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 OLED55B8PUA has a smartphone remote app (as do the LG 49SM8600PUA and the LG SIGNATURE OLED65E8PUA), whereas the LG 49SK8000 and the LG 70UK6570PUB 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.

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 (as do the LG 49SK8000, the LG 49SM8600PUA and the LG SIGNATURE OLED65E8PUA), however the LG 70UK6570PUB does 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 LG OLED55B8PUA features local dimming, and so do the LG 49SK8000, the LG 49SM8600PUA and the LG SIGNATURE OLED65E8PUA, however the LG 70UK6570PUB 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.

USB Recording

The LG OLED55B8PUA features USB recording, and so do the LG 49SM8600PUA and the LG SIGNATURE OLED65E8PUA, whereas the LG 49SK8000 and the LG 70UK6570PUB 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.

Noise Reduction

The LG OLED55B8PUA supports noise reduction (as do the LG 49SK8000, the LG 49SM8600PUA and the LG SIGNATURE OLED65E8PUA), whereas the LG 70UK6570PUB does not support this feature. More ...

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

Bluetooth

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.

Wi-Fi Direct

The LG OLED55B8PUA supports Wi-Fi Direct (as does the LG SIGNATURE OLED65E8PUA), however the LG 49SK8000, the LG 49SM8600PUA and the LG 70UK6570PUB do not support this feature. More ...

Wi-Fi Direct is a system to allow your TV to connect directly to other device without requiring a wireless router as a go-between.

Wi-Fi Direct is helpful on a TV because it allows a TV to connect to another device (such as a computer or phone) directly, meaning there is far less setup required - the devices just need to be 'paired' (normally at a press of a button) and the y can transfer data between each other. This is extremely useful for streaming media onto your TV from a computer or phone.

Picture-in-Picture

The LG OLED55B8PUA supports Picture-in-Picture (as does the LG SIGNATURE OLED65E8PUA), whereas the LG 49SK8000, the LG 49SM8600PUA and the LG 70UK6570PUB do not support this feature. More ...

Voice Control

The LG OLED55B8PUA features voice control (as do the LG 49SK8000, the LG 49SM8600PUA and the LG SIGNATURE OLED65E8PUA), but the LG 70UK6570PUB does not feature this benefit. More ...

Voice Control on a TV is a system that allows users to control various functions of their TV (volume, channels, etc) purely with voice commands, rather than having to use the remote.

Voice controls mean that you can control the TV from your couch without having to find a remote or move to manually change the channel or adjust the settings, leading to a more streamlined experience.

Desktop Stand Included

The LG OLED55B8PUA has a desktop stand included (as do the LG 49SK8000, the LG 49SM8600PUA and the LG SIGNATURE OLED65E8PUA), whereas the LG 70UK6570PUB does not have this feature. More ...

15 Reasons Against for Choosing the LG OLED55B8PUA

Smaller Display Diagonal

The LG OLED55B8PUA has a display diagonal of 55, but the LG 49SK8000 and the LG 49SM8600PUA are both 49" TVs (6" smaller), the LG 70UK6570PUB is a 69.5" TV (14.5" larger) and the LG SIGNATURE OLED65E8PUA 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.

Not 3D

The LG OLED55B8PUA is not 3D (As do the the LG 49SM8600PUA and the LG SIGNATURE OLED65E8PUA), whereas the LG 49SK8000 and the LG 70UK6570PUB are. 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.

34% Lower RMS Rated Power

The LG OLED55B8PUA is a 40 RMS rated power TV. That's 20W higher than the LG 49SM8600PUA and the LG 70UK6570PUB (20W) and 20W lower than the LG SIGNATURE OLED65E8PUA (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.

More Expensive by $770

The LG OLED55B8PUA is $770 more expensive than the LG 49SK8000, $701 more expensive than the LG 49SM8600PUA and $400 more expensive than the LG 70UK6570PUB.

Fewer Sellers

The LG OLED55B8PUA is only stocked by 5 sellers, but the LG 70UK6570PUB is stocked by 6 shops and the LG SIGNATURE OLED65E8PUA is stocked by 11 stores. More ...

The fewer the number of sellers that stock the product, the lower the competition amongst sellers to keep prices low.
$25 More Expensive to Run Over Five Years

The LG OLED55B8PUA costs $122 to run which is $21 more than the LG 49SK8000 and $25 more than the LG 49SM8600PUA over five years. Show assumptions.

The LG 49SM8600PUA supports screen mirroring, and so do the LG 49SK8000, the LG OLED55B8PUA and the LG SIGNATURE OLED65E8PUA, whereas the LG 70UK6570PUB does 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

13 Reasons Against for Choosing the LG 49SM8600PUA

A Lot Smaller Display Diagonal

The LG 49SM8600PUA has a display diagonal of 49 (as does the LG 49SK8000), however the LG 70UK6570PUB is a 69.5" TV (20.5" larger), the LG OLED55B8PUA is a 55" TV (6" larger) and the LG SIGNATURE OLED65E8PUA is a 65" TV (16" 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.

Does Not Feature OLED / QLED Technology

The LG 49SM8600PUA does not feature OLED / QLED technology (As do the the LG 49SK8000 and the LG 70UK6570PUB), whereas the LG OLED55B8PUA and the LG SIGNATURE OLED65E8PUA do. More ...

OLED and QLED 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 and QLED 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. They are also cheaper to run.

16.7mm Thicker

The LG 49SM8600PUA is a 63.6 thick TV. That's 0.4mm thinner than the LG 49SK8000 (64mm), 5.4mm thinner than the LG 70UK6570PUB (69mm), 16.7mm thicker than the LG OLED55B8PUA (46.9mm) and 11.8mm thicker than the LG SIGNATURE OLED65E8PUA (51.8mm). 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.

Not 3D

The LG 49SM8600PUA is not 3D (As do the the LG OLED55B8PUA and the LG SIGNATURE OLED65E8PUA), but the LG 49SK8000 and the LG 70UK6570PUB are. 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.

More Expensive by $69

The LG 49SM8600PUA is $69 more expensive than the LG 49SK8000.

Not As Many Stockists

The LG 49SM8600PUA is only stocked by 4 retailers, however the LG 70UK6570PUB is stocked by 6 retailers, the LG OLED55B8PUA is stocked by 5 shops and the LG SIGNATURE OLED65E8PUA is stocked by 11 sellers. More ...

20 Reasons For for Choosing the LG SIGNATURE OLED65E8PUA

OLED / QLED Technology

The LG SIGNATURE OLED65E8PUA features OLED / QLED technology (as does the LG OLED55B8PUA), whereas the LG 49SK8000, the LG 49SM8600PUA and the LG 70UK6570PUB do not feature this benefit. More ...

OLED and QLED 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 and QLED 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. They are also cheaper to run.

10Hz Faster High Frequency Rate

The LG SIGNATURE OLED65E8PUA is a 60 refresh rate TV, whereas the LG 49SK8000 is only a 50Hz refresh rate TV (10Hz slower). More ...

The refresh rate (also known as the high frequency rate) is the number of times that the image on the screen is refreshed per second. It affects how smoothly motion on the screen appears.

Action will appear smoother on TVs with a higher frequency rate: a TV with a high frequency rate of 30Hz refreshes the image on the screen once every 30 times every second. However a TV with a high frequency rate of 60Hz would refresh the image on the screen 60 times every second which means that action scenes would appear smoother.

Built-in Subwoofer

The LG SIGNATURE OLED65E8PUA has a built-in subwoofer (as does the LG OLED55B8PUA), whereas the LG 49SK8000, the LG 49SM8600PUA and the LG 70UK6570PUB do not have this feature. 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.

Higher RMS Rated Power

The LG SIGNATURE OLED65E8PUA is a 60 RMS rated power TV. That's 40W higher than the LG 49SM8600PUA and the LG 70UK6570PUB (20W) and 20W higher than the LG OLED55B8PUA (40W). 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.

Timeshift

The LG SIGNATURE OLED65E8PUA supports timeshift, and so do the LG 49SM8600PUA and the LG OLED55B8PUA, however the LG 49SK8000 and the LG 70UK6570PUB 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.

Screen Mirroring

The LG SIGNATURE OLED65E8PUA supports screen mirroring, and so do the LG 49SK8000, the LG 49SM8600PUA and the LG OLED55B8PUA, however the LG 70UK6570PUB does not. More ...

Screen Mirroring on a TV is a system that allows you to view the screen from a computer or mobile phone on your TV.

Screen mirroring on a TV is helpful because it allows you to easily display media and info running on a phone or laptop to a big screen for easy viewing with a minimum of effort.

Smartphone Remote App

The LG SIGNATURE OLED65E8PUA has a smartphone remote app (as do the LG 49SM8600PUA and the LG OLED55B8PUA), whereas the LG 49SK8000 and the LG 70UK6570PUB 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.

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 SIGNATURE OLED65E8PUA has a game mode (as do the LG 49SK8000, the LG 49SM8600PUA and the LG OLED55B8PUA), however the LG 70UK6570PUB does 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 LG SIGNATURE OLED65E8PUA features local dimming, and so do the LG 49SK8000, the LG 49SM8600PUA and the LG OLED55B8PUA, however the LG 70UK6570PUB 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.

USB Recording

The LG SIGNATURE OLED65E8PUA features USB recording, and so do the LG 49SM8600PUA and the LG OLED55B8PUA, whereas the LG 49SK8000 and the LG 70UK6570PUB 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.

Noise Reduction

The LG SIGNATURE OLED65E8PUA supports noise reduction (as do the LG 49SK8000, the LG 49SM8600PUA and the LG OLED55B8PUA), whereas the LG 70UK6570PUB does not support this feature. More ...

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

Bluetooth

The LG SIGNATURE OLED65E8PUA supports Bluetooth, and so do the LG 49SK8000, the LG 49SM8600PUA and the LG OLED55B8PUA, however the LG 70UK6570PUB does not. More ...

A Bluetooth connection on your TV means it can send and receive data from Bluetooth-enabled devices, such as headphones, mobile phones or remotes.

A Bluetooth connection on your phone allows you to use many newer wireless devices with your TV, such as wireless headphones and controlling your TV using your phone.

Miracast

The LG SIGNATURE OLED65E8PUA supports Miracast, and so do the LG 49SK8000, the LG 49SM8600PUA and the LG OLED55B8PUA, however the LG 70UK6570PUB does not. 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.

Wi-Fi Direct

The LG SIGNATURE OLED65E8PUA supports Wi-Fi Direct (as does the LG OLED55B8PUA), however the LG 49SK8000, the LG 49SM8600PUA and the LG 70UK6570PUB do not support this feature. More ...

Wi-Fi Direct is a system to allow your TV to connect directly to other device without requiring a wireless router as a go-between.

Wi-Fi Direct is helpful on a TV because it allows a TV to connect to another device (such as a computer or phone) directly, meaning there is far less setup required - the devices just need to be 'paired' (normally at a press of a button) and the y can transfer data between each other. This is extremely useful for streaming media onto your TV from a computer or phone.

Picture-in-Picture

The LG SIGNATURE OLED65E8PUA supports Picture-in-Picture (as does the LG OLED55B8PUA), whereas the LG 49SK8000, the LG 49SM8600PUA and the LG 70UK6570PUB do not support this feature. 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.

Voice Control

The LG SIGNATURE OLED65E8PUA features voice control (as do the LG 49SK8000, the LG 49SM8600PUA and the LG OLED55B8PUA), but the LG 70UK6570PUB does not feature this benefit. More ...

Voice Control on a TV is a system that allows users to control various functions of their TV (volume, channels, etc) purely with voice commands, rather than having to use the remote.

Voice controls mean that you can control the TV from your couch without having to find a remote or move to manually change the channel or adjust the settings, leading to a more streamlined experience.

Desktop Stand Included

The LG SIGNATURE OLED65E8PUA has a desktop stand included (as do the LG 49SK8000, the LG 49SM8600PUA and the LG OLED55B8PUA), whereas the LG 70UK6570PUB does not have this feature. 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.

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.

Newer by Four Months

The LG SIGNATURE OLED65E8PUA is 16 months newer than the LG 49SK8000, four months newer than the LG 49SM8600PUA and 18 months newer than the LG 70UK6570PUB

2 Expert Review Sites Gave It a Higher Review Score

Homecinemachoice.com and Tek.no both gave the LG SIGNATURE OLED65E8PUA a better review score. More ...

Homecinemachoice.com: LG SIGNATURE OLED65E8PUA = 100% vs LG OLED55B8PUA = 90%

Tek.no: LG SIGNATURE OLED65E8PUA = 95% vs LG OLED55B8PUA = 85%

15 Reasons Against for Choosing the LG SIGNATURE OLED65E8PUA

A Bit Smaller Display Diagonal

The LG SIGNATURE OLED65E8PUA has a display diagonal of 65, but the LG 49SK8000 and the LG 49SM8600PUA are both 49" TVs (16" smaller), the LG 70UK6570PUB is a 69.5" TV (4.5" larger) and the LG OLED55B8PUA is a 55" TV (10" 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.

9% Thicker

The LG SIGNATURE OLED65E8PUA has a thickness of 51.8. That's 12.2mm thinner than the LG 49SK8000 (64mm), 11.8mm thinner than the LG 49SM8600PUA (63.6mm), 17.2mm thinner than the LG 70UK6570PUB (69mm) and 4.9mm thicker than the LG OLED55B8PUA (46.9mm). 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.

Not 3D

The LG SIGNATURE OLED65E8PUA is not 3D (As do the the LG 49SM8600PUA and the LG OLED55B8PUA), whereas the LG 49SK8000 and the LG 70UK6570PUB are. 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.

Worse Kagoo Score

The LG SIGNATURE OLED65E8PUA has received a Kagoo Score of 86, whereas the LG 70UK6570PUB scored 87 and the LG OLED55B8PUA scored 87.

More Expensive by $1,169

The LG SIGNATURE OLED65E8PUA is $1,169 more expensive than the LG 49SK8000, $1,100 more expensive than the LG 49SM8600PUA, $799 more expensive than the LG 70UK6570PUB and $399 more expensive than the LG OLED55B8PUA.

Higher Running Costs Over Five Years by $68

Over five years the LG SIGNATURE OLED65E8PUA costs $165 to run which is $64 more than the LG 49SK8000, $68 more than the LG 49SM8600PUA, $8 more than the LG 70UK6570PUB and $43 more than the LG OLED55B8PUA. Show assumptions.

11 Less Awards

The LG SIGNATURE OLED65E8PUA has only received 4 awards, but the LG OLED55B8PUA has received 15 awards.

Expert Review Rating is Considerably Worse

The average expert rating of the LG SIGNATURE OLED65E8PUA is 89%, whereas the average expert rating of the LG 49SM8600PUA is 100% (based on 2 reviews) and the LG OLED55B8PUA is 92% (based on 41 reviews).

User Review Rating is Slightly Worse

The average user rating of the LG SIGNATURE OLED65E8PUA is 92%, whereas the average user rating of the LG 70UK6570PUB is 93% (based on 219 reviews) and the LG OLED55B8PUA is 96% (based on 964 reviews).

Less Customers Recommend it

Only 57.8% of 147 customers recommend the LG SIGNATURE OLED65E8PUA, but 80.1% of 472 customers recommend the LG 49SK8000, 57.9% of 19 customers recommend the LG 49SM8600PUA, 91.1% of 225 customers recommend the LG 70UK6570PUB and 73.5% of 1,016 customers recommend the LG OLED55B8PUA.

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.

Does Not Feature OLED / QLED Technology

The LG 49SK8000 does not feature OLED / QLED technology (As do the the LG 49SM8600PUA and the LG 70UK6570PUB), whereas the LG OLED55B8PUA and the LG SIGNATURE OLED65E8PUA do. More ...

OLED and QLED 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 and QLED 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. They are also cheaper to run.

17.1mm Thicker

The LG 49SK8000 is a 64 thick TV. That's 0.4mm thicker than the LG 49SM8600PUA (63.6mm), 5mm thinner than the LG 70UK6570PUB (69mm), 17.1mm thicker than the LG OLED55B8PUA (46.9mm) and 12.2mm thicker than the LG SIGNATURE OLED65E8PUA (51.8mm). 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.

Slower High Frequency Rate

LG 49SK8000 is only 50 refresh rate, but the LG SIGNATURE OLED65E8PUA is a 60Hz refresh rate TV (10Hz faster). More ...

The refresh rate (also known as the high frequency rate) is the number of times that the image on the screen is refreshed per second. It affects how smoothly motion on the screen appears.

Action will appear smoother on TVs with a higher frequency rate: a TV with a high frequency rate of 30Hz refreshes the image on the screen once every 30 times every second. However a TV with a high frequency rate of 60Hz would refresh the image on the screen 60 times every second which means that action scenes would appear smoother.

Worse Kagoo Score

The LG 49SK8000 has received a Kagoo Score of 86, but the LG 70UK6570PUB scored 87 and the LG OLED55B8PUA scored 87.
