Reasons For

4 Reasons For
5" larger screen size Edit
The Samsung HG48ED890 is a 48" TV. That's 5" larger than the Samsung UE43J5500 (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.

70% faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Samsung HG48ED890 is a 1,000Hz motion interpolation frequency TV. That's 700Hz faster than the Samsung UE43J5500 (300Hz). Read more

The motion interpolation frequency is the frame rate which the TV is able to artificially create by inserting additional frames into the picture between the frames included in the original video source. Motion interpolation technology can sometimes create some unwanted side effects such glitches when the technology suddenly activates during an action scene. Most modern TVs will have an option to switch off the motion interpolation if it is not desired.

A faster motion interpolation frequency will result in smoother action scenes, less motion blur and a more life like image.

A lot higher RMS rated power Edit
The Samsung HG48ED890 has an RMS rated power of 40W, but the Samsung UE43J5500 is only a 20W 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.

One more headphone output port Edit
The Samsung HG48ED890 is a two headphone output port TV, whereas the Samsung UE43J5500 only has one headphone output port. Read more

The number of headphone output ports means the number of headphone sockets on the device.

A headphone output port lets you connect a set of headphones to the TV. Multiple headphone sockets allows you to connect multiple sets of headphones to the TV at the same TV.

8 Reasons For
Two RF ports Edit
The number of RF ports on the Samsung UE43J5500 is two, but the Samsung HG48ED890 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.

Vastly lower annual energy consumption Edit
The Samsung UE43J5500 has an annual energy consumption of 71kWh, however the Samsung HG48ED890 is a 118kWh annual energy consumption TV (47kWh 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.

Significantly lighter Edit

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.

Cheaper by £1,238
The Samsung UE43J5500 costs £1,238.32 less than the Samsung HG48ED890.
