Reasons For

1 Reason For
One more RF port Edit
The Hisense LTDN55K720 has two RF ports, however the Samsung UE55JU6500 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.

8 Reasons For
A lot faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Samsung UE55JU6500 has a motion interpolation frequency of 1,100Hz, but the Hisense LTDN55K720 is only an 800Hz motion interpolation frequency TV (300Hz 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.

One more USB 2.0 port Edit
The Samsung UE55JU6500 is a three USB 2.0 port TV, whereas the Hisense LTDN55K720 only has two USB 2.0 ports. 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.
