6 Reasons For
Marginally larger screen size Edit
The Samsung UE55K5600 has a screen size of 55", however the Samsung UE50KU6000 is only a 50" TV (5" smaller). 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.

Two RF ports Edit
The Samsung UE55K5600 is a two RF port TV, whereas the Samsung UE50KU6000 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.

35kWh lower annual energy consumption Edit
The Samsung UE55K5600 has an annual energy consumption of 94kWh, but the Samsung UE50KU6000 is a 129kWh annual energy consumption TV (35kWh 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.

8.1mm thinner Edit
The Samsung UE55K5600 is a 55.1mm thick TV. That's 8.1mm thinner than the Samsung UE50KU6000 (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.

£40.06 cheaper to run
Over five years the Samsung UE55K5600 is £40.06 cheaper to run than the Samsung UE50KU6000. Read more
Energy efficiency rating is higher
The Samsung UE55K5600 has an energy efficiency rating of "A+", but the Samsung UE50KU6000 has a rating of "A".
