4 Reasons For
Game Mode
The LG 42SL90QR has a game mode, however the LG 60UH8500 does not.

'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.

Read more Read less | Edit
Bluetooth
The LG 42SL90QR supports Bluetooth, however the LG 60UH8500 does not support this feature.

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.

Read more Read less | Edit
$85 Cheaper
The LG 42SL90QR is $85.04 cheaper than the LG 60UH8500.
Better Hifitest.de Review Score
The LG 42SL90QR has a Hifitest.de review score of 100%, but the LG 60UH8500's rating was only 80% from the same site.
11 Reasons For
4K
The LG 60UH8500 is 4K, which is 4 times the display resolution of the LG 42SL90QR (full hd).

HD Type on a TV refers to the type of high definition image that the TV is capable of displaying (e.g. Full HD, 4K Ultra HD).

The better the HD type the better the image resolution and the perceived sharpness of the image will be. Images will appear more life like and realistic. This will be more noticeable on a TV with a larger display diagonal.

Read more Read less | Edit
Larger Display Diagonal
The LG 60UH8500 is a 60" TV. That's 18" larger than the LG 42SL90QR (42").

‘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.

Read more Read less | Edit
20W Higher RMS Rated Power
The LG 60UH8500 has an RMS rated power of 40W, however the LG 42SL90QR is only a 20W RMS rated power TV (20W lower).

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.

Read more Read less | Edit
Local Dimming
The LG 60UH8500 features local dimming, however the LG 42SL90QR does not feature this benefit.

'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.

Read more Read less | Edit
Wi-Fi
The LG 60UH8500 supports Wi-Fi, but the LG 42SL90QR does not support this feature.

A Wifi (wireless LAN connection) on your TV means that you can connect your TV directly to your WiFi network.

A wifi connection means that connecting your TV to the net will be easier and can be done without cables.

Read more Read less | Edit
Ethernet Port
The LG 60UH8500 has an ethernet port, whereas the LG 42SL90QR does not.

An ethernet port lets you connect the TV directly to your router with an ethernet cable.

An ethernet connection is more reliable than wifi and is useful if you do not have a wiki network or the wifi signal is weak. Depending on the speed of your wifi network and ethernet connection may be faster than wifi which means less buffering when streaming content to the TV.

Read more Read less | Edit
Wi-Fi Direct
The LG 60UH8500 supports Wi-Fi Direct, however the LG 42SL90QR does not.

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.
