Reasons For

6 Reasons For
Significantly faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Samsung UE55JU6000 has a motion interpolation frequency of 800Hz, whereas the Samsung UE55K5500 is only a 50Hz motion interpolation frequency TV (750Hz 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.

Two RF ports Edit
The Samsung UE55JU6000 is a two RF port TV, whereas the Samsung UE55K5500 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.
