8 Reasons For
Larger screen size Edit
The Samsung UE49KS8000 is a 49" TV. That's 6" larger than the Samsung UE43KS7500 (49"). Read more

The display diagonal of a TV is the most common measure of screen size and is the distance from the top left to the bottom right of the visible part of a TV screen 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. 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.

TVs with a bigger display diagonal allow you to make the most of HD content and are great for watching movies.

20W higher RMS rated power Edit
The Samsung UE49KS8000 has an RMS rated power of 60W, however the Samsung UE43KS7500 is only a 40W RMS rated power TV (20W 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.

Four point one loudspeakers Edit
The Samsung UE49KS8000 is a four point one loudspeaker TV, whereas the Samsung UE43KS7500 only has two loudspeakers. Read more

The number of loudspeakers is the total number of speakers provided with the TV, either inside the TV casing or as external speakers.

A greater number of speakers will allow for better quality audio and different frequencies. Multiple external speakers will enable to the TV to play surround sound audio.

Vastly thinner Edit
The Samsung UE49KS8000 has a thickness of 45.2mm, however the Samsung UE43KS7500 is an 83.1mm thick TV (37.9mm thicker). Read more

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.
