7 Reasons For
A lot higher RMS rated power Edit
The Samsung UE40KU6400 has an RMS rated power of 20W, however the Hisense H40M2600 is only a 14W RMS rated power TV (6W lower). Read 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.

Two USB 2.0 ports Edit
The number of USB 2.0 ports on the Samsung UE40KU6400 is two, but the Hisense H40M2600 only has one USB 2.0 port. Read more

USB ports are useful for displaying on your TV photos / videos or playing music that is stored on USB key drives. The USB port can also be used for charging devices from your TV (as long as it's switched on), and for installing software updates on the TV.

More USB ports will allow you to connect more USB devices to the TV simultaneously without needing to continuous plug in and unplug cables.

One more HDMI port Edit
The Samsung UE40KU6400 is a three HDMI port TV, whereas the Hisense H40M2600 only has two HDMI ports. Read more

The HDMI ports quantity is the number of ports that the TV has that will accept a HDMI cable. HDMI is the most common type of cable used to connect modern TVs, DVD players, games consoles etc.

A greater number of HDMI ports will allow you to permanently connect more devices to the TV and will reduce the need to reach around the back of the TV to unplug and plug in cables when switching between devices.

16.2kWh lower annual energy consumption Edit
The Samsung UE40KU6400 is an 86kWh annual energy consumption TV. That's 16.2kWh lower than the Hisense H40M2600 (86kWh). Read more

The annual energy consumption is the total amount of energy that the TV will use over the course of a whole year, given typical usage levels.

A lower annual energy consumption means that it will cost less each year for you to run your TV.

26.4mm thinner Edit
The Samsung UE40KU6400 has a thickness of 54.6mm, however the Hisense H40M2600 is an 81mm thick TV (26.4mm thicker). 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.

Available from 51 shops
A greater number of stores increases the price competition amongst retailers for this TV and also increases the chances of the product remaining in stock.
Cheaper to run by £14.03
The Samsung UE40KU6400 only costs £101.18 to run over five years however the Hisense H40M2600 costs £115.21 to run (14% more). Read more
