Reasons For

5 Reasons For
3D compatible Edit
The Samsung UE55JS8500 is 3D compatible, and so is the Samsung UE55JU7000, whereas the Samsung UE55JU6740 is not 3D compatible. Read more

3D technology has become increasingly popular as the amount of 3D film and TV content has increased dramatically in recent years. All 3D TVs will also display regular 2D content and most will allow you to switch on and off the 3D effect on 3D content. Most 3D TVs require you to wear special 3D glasses in order to view the content in 3D, however some of the newer 3D TVs require no 3D glasses at all. Of those TVs that do require glasses, there are two main types of 3D technology: passive and active. Passive 3D uses glasses similar to those that you wear in the cinema. The glasses have polarised lenses which ensure that the correct image is displayed to each eye. The main advantage of passive 3D is that the glasses are very light and comfortable to wear, but it can result in a less bright image. Active 3D uses battery powered glasses which control active shutters in each lens. These shutters constantly open and close very quickly in sync with two different images that are being displayed by the TV. This ensures that the correct image is displayed to each eye. The main advantage of active 3D is that the image is brighter, however the glasses are heavier and more expensive.

3D compatible TVs allow you to watch 3D content. For most TVs you will need to wear special glasses to see the 3D effect.

50% higher RMS rated power Edit
The Samsung UE55JS8500 is a 40W RMS rated power TV. That's 20W higher than the Samsung UE55JU6740 and the Samsung UE55JU7000 (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.

Local dimming Edit
The Samsung UE55JS8500 features local dimming, and so does the Samsung UE55JU7000, but the Samsung UE55JU6740 does not feature local dimming. Read more

This means that LEDs can be controlled individually (or in clusters) to control the level of light/color intensity in a given part of the screen.

One more awards
The Samsung UE55JS8500 has 4 awards from expert review sites, whereas the Samsung UE55JU7000 has 3 awards.

Local dimming Edit
The Samsung UE55JU7000 features local dimming (as does the Samsung UE55JS8500), but the Samsung UE55JU6740 does not feature local dimming. Read more

This means that LEDs can be controlled individually (or in clusters) to control the level of light/color intensity in a given part of the screen.

36% lower annual energy consumption Edit
The Samsung UE55JU7000 is a 114kWh annual energy consumption TV. That's 40kWh lower than the Samsung UE55JS8500 (114kWh) and 1kWh lower than the Samsung UE55JU6740 (114kWh). 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.

A lot thinner Edit
Samsung UE55JU7000 is 67.4mm thick, but the Samsung UE55JS8500 is a 91.5mm thick TV (24.1mm thicker). 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.

36% lighter Edit
The Samsung UE55JU7000 is a 15.4kg heavy TV. That's 5.5kg lighter than the Samsung UE55JS8500 (15.4kg) and 800g lighter than the Samsung UE55JU6740 (15.4kg). Read more

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

The Samsung UE55JU7000 is £46.47 cheaper to run than the Samsung UE55JS8500 and £1.60 cheaper to run than the Samsung UE55JU6740 over five years. Read more
Better energy efficiency rating
The energy efficiency rating of the Samsung UE55JU7000 is "A+", however the rating of the Samsung UE55JS8500 is "A" and the rating of the Samsung UE55JU6740 is "A+".
