Reasons For

LG 55UH7700 Samsung UN55KS8000 Samsung UN55KU7000 Sony XBR-55X810
3 Reasons For
1% Larger Display Diagonal
The LG 55UH7700 is a 55" TV, and so does the Sony XBR-55X810. That's 0.4" larger than the Samsung UN55KS8000 and the Samsung UN55KU7000 (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.

50% Faster Motion Interpolation Frequency
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).

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.

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

Internet TV
The LG 55UH7700 supports internet TV (as do the Samsung UN55KU7000 and the Sony XBR-55X810), whereas the Samsung UN55KS8000 does not support internet TV.

Internet TVs allow you to access the internet directly through your TV. Connect your TV to your local network though WiFi or an ethernet cable.

Internet TVs let you watch movies and TV on the internet by connecting directly to services such as BBC iPlayer and YouTube without a computer.

20W Higher RMS Rated Power
The Samsung UN55KS8000 has an RMS rated power of 40W, but the LG 55UH7700, the Samsung UN55KU7000 and the Sony XBR-55X810 are all only 20W RMS rated power TVs (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.

Hugely Thinner
Samsung UN55KS8000 is 43.18mm thick, but the LG 55UH7700 is a 53.8mm thick TV (10.62mm thicker), the Samsung UN55KU7000 is a 53.34mm thick TV (10.16mm thicker) and the Sony XBR-55X810 is an 80mm thick TV (36.82mm 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.

Key Features

Display Diagonal

‘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.

Thickness

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.

Running Costs Over 5 Years

TV running costs calculated based on an average of 5 hours of use per day. The running cost comprises the electricity cost when using the TV and the electricity standby cost. Compare all energy saving TVs.

Environmental Impact

We have calculated the amount of CO2 that will be generated by running each of these TVs for 5 years. We have then converted that into the number of tree seedlings that you would need to plant and grow for 10 years in order to offset that amount of CO2.
