Reasons For

10 Reasons For
Vastly faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Samsung UE55JU6800 has a motion interpolation frequency of 1,400Hz, however the Samsung UE55KU6500 is only a 100Hz motion interpolation frequency TV (1,300Hz slower). 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.

One more USB 2.0 port Edit
The number of USB 2.0 ports on the Samsung UE55JU6800 is three, but the Samsung UE55KU6500 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.

Four HDMI ports Edit

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.

36kWh lower annual energy consumption Edit
