Reasons For

LG 55EC9300 LG 55EG9100
5 Reasons For
20W Higher RMS Rated Power
The LG 55EC9300 has an RMS rated power of 40W, whereas the LG 55EG9100 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
Slightly Thinner
The LG 55EC9300 is an 80mm thick TV, whereas the LG 55EG9100 is an 87.3mm thick TV (7.3mm thicker).

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.

More Shops Are Selling it
The more retailers stock this TV, the greater competition amongst retailers to keep prices low.
Four More Awards
The LG 55EC9300 has 5 awards, however the LG 55EG9100 has 1 award.
Better Tomsguide.com Review Score
Tomsguide.com gave the LG 55EC9300 a review score of 100%, however the LG 55EG9100 only has a rating of 80% from the same site.
3 Reasons For
Larger Display Diagonal
The LG 55EG9100 is a 55" TV. That's 0.4" larger than the LG 55EC9300 (54.6").

‘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.
