Reasons For

8 Reasons For
Faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Samsung UE43KS7500 is a 200Hz motion interpolation frequency TV. That's 100Hz faster than the Samsung UE43KU6500 (100Hz). 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.

20W higher RMS rated power Edit
The Samsung UE43KS7500 has an RMS rated power of 40W, however the Samsung UE43KU6500 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.

Three USB 2.0 ports Edit
The number of USB 2.0 ports on the Samsung UE43KS7500 is three, but the Samsung UE43KU6500 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.

One more HDMI port Edit
The Samsung UE43KS7500 is a four HDMI port TV, whereas the Samsung UE43KU6500 only has three HDMI ports. Read more
