Reasons For

5 Reasons For
96% faster refresh rate Edit
The LG 49UH620 is a 1,200Hz refresh rate TV. That's 1,150Hz faster than the Samsung UE49K5500 (50Hz). Read more

The refresh rate is also known as the high frequency rate and it affects how smooth motion on the screen appears. The high frequency rate is the number of times that the image on the screen is refreshed per second. A TV with a high frequency rate of 30Hz refreshes the image on the screen once every 30 times every second. A TV with a high frequency rate of 60Hz would refresh the image on the screen 60 times every second which means that action scenes would appear smoother.

The high frequency rate is also known as the refresh rate and it affects how smooth motion on the screen appears. Action will appear smoother on TVs with a higher frequency rate.

One more RF port Edit
The LG 49UH620 is a two RF port TV, whereas the Samsung UE49K5500 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.

12% lighter Edit
The LG 49UH620 has a weight of 11.7kg. That's 1.3kg lighter than the Samsung UE49K5500 (13kg). Read more

The weight is the total weight of the TV excluding all packaging.

A lighter weight TV will be easier to move around and to mount on a wall. Some of the larger, very heavy TVs may require lightweight partition walls to be reinforced before the TV could be mounted.

One more RF input Edit
The number of RF inputs on the LG 49UH620 is two, but the Samsung UE49K5500 only has one RF input.
Higher energy efficiency rating
The energy efficiency rating of the LG 49UH620 is "A+", but the rating of the Samsung UE49K5500 is "A+".
7 Reasons For
One more USB 2.0 port Edit
The Samsung UE49K5500 is a two USB 2.0 port TV, whereas the LG 49UH620 only has one USB 2.0 port. Read more

More USB ports will allow you to connect more USB devices to the TV simultaneously without needing to continuous plug in and unplug cables.

3kWh lower annual energy consumption Edit
The Samsung UE49K5500 has an annual energy consumption of 89kWh, however the LG 49UH620 is a 92kWh annual energy consumption TV (3kWh higher). Read more

48% thinner Edit
Samsung UE49K5500 is 55.1mm thick. That's 26.4mm thinner than the LG 49UH620 (55.1mm). Read more

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.
