Reasons For

1 Reason For
11% larger screen size Edit
The LOEWE Connect 48 is a 48" TV. That's 5" larger than the Samsung UE43KS7500 (43"). 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.

6 Reasons For
One more USB 2.0 port Edit
The number of USB 2.0 ports on the Samsung UE43KS7500 is three, but the LOEWE Connect 48 only has two USB 2.0 ports. 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.

50kWh lower annual energy consumption Edit
The Samsung UE43KS7500 has an annual energy consumption of 97kWh, whereas the LOEWE Connect 48 is a 147kWh annual energy consumption TV (50kWh higher). 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.

9.2kg lighter Edit
Samsung UE43KS7500 is 10.3kg heavy, but the LOEWE Connect 48 is a 19.5kg heavy TV (9.2kg heavier). Read more

The weight is the total weight of the TV excluding all packaging.

A lighter weight TV will be easier to move around and to mount on a wall. Some of the larger, very heavy TVs may require lightweight partition walls to be reinforced before the TV could be mounted.
