Reasons For

3 Reasons For
Two RF ports Edit
The Samsung UE48JU6000 has two RF ports, however the Sony FWL-48W705 only has one RF port. Read more

RF stands for Radio Frequency and an RF port is an older type of input connector for TVs which is most commonly use for connecting cable TV and satellite TV feeds directly to the TV.

Multiple RF ports will allow you to connect multiple RF feeds to the TV at the same time. For example, if the TV has a built in satellite TV decoder then you could connect 2 different satellite dishes to the TV.

14% thinner Edit
The Samsung UE48JU6000 has a thickness of 50.2mm. That's 6.8mm thinner than the Sony FWL-48W705 (57mm). Read more

The depth of the TV is the thickness of the 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.

300g lighter Edit
Samsung UE48JU6000 is 11kg heavy, but the Sony FWL-48W705 is an 11.3kg heavy TV (300g heavier). Read more
