Reasons For

6 Reasons For
200Hz faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The LG 49UH850 has a motion interpolation frequency of 200Hz, whereas the Samsung UE49K5600 is only a unknownHz motion interpolation frequency TV (200Hz 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.

Vastly bigger picture mastering index (PMI) Edit
The LG 49UH850 is a 2,700 TV. That's 2,700 bigger than the Samsung UE49K5600 (unknown).
20W higher subwoofer RMS power Edit
The LG 49UH850 has a subwoofer RMS power of 20W, whereas the Samsung UE49K5600 is only a unknownW subwoofer RMS power TV (20W lower). Read more

This is a measure of the continuous power (RMS power) produced by a subwoofer.

50% higher RMS rated power Edit
The LG 49UH850 is a 40W RMS rated power TV. That's 20W higher than the Samsung UE49K5600 (20W). 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.

Vastly longer programming period Edit
The LG 49UH850 is an 8 day(s) programming period TV. That's 8 day(s) longer than the Samsung UE49K5600 (unknown day(s)).
Thinner Edit
The LG 49UH850 is a 51.5mm thick TV. That's 3.6mm thinner than the Samsung UE49K5600 (55.1mm). Read more

The depth of the TV is the thickness of the TV measured from the back of the TV to the front of the TV. Curved TVs will have quite a big depth as this dimension is measured from the back of the centre of the screen to the front of the edges of the screen.

A thinner TV has the advantage of appearing more elegant and will also mean that the TV will not stick out as much when mounted on a wall.

5 Reasons For
