Reasons For

6 Reasons For
One more RF port Edit
The Samsung UE55JU6740 has two RF ports, however the Samsung UE65HU7200 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.

63% lower annual energy consumption Edit
The Samsung UE55JU6740 is a 115kWh annual energy consumption TV. That's 72kWh lower than the Samsung UE65HU7200 (187kWh). 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.

73% lighter Edit
Samsung UE55JU6740 is 16.2kg heavy. That's 11.8kg lighter than the Samsung UE65HU7200 (28kg). 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.

3 Reasons For
Larger screen size Edit
The Samsung UE65HU7200 has a screen size of 65", but the Samsung UE55JU6740 is only a 55" TV (10" smaller). 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.

Common interface connection Edit
The Samsung UE65HU7200 has a common interface connection, whereas the Samsung UE55JU6740 does not have a common interface connection. Read more
