Reasons For

5 Reasons For
8kWh lower annual energy consumption Edit
The Samsung UE50JU6800 has an annual energy consumption of 129kWh, but the Samsung UE60JU6800 is a 137kWh annual energy consumption TV (8kWh 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.

2% thinner Edit
The Samsung UE50JU6800 is a 63.2mm thick TV. That's 0.8mm thinner than the Samsung UE60JU6800 (64mm). 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.

8.4kg lighter Edit
The Samsung UE50JU6800 has a weight of 13.4kg, however the Samsung UE60JU6800 is a 21.8kg heavy TV (8.4kg heavier). 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.

Cheaper by £107
The Samsung UE50JU6800 costs £742.16, whereas the Samsung UE60JU6800 is £849.00.
£7.79 cheaper to run
Over five years the Samsung UE50JU6800 is £7.79 cheaper to run than the Samsung UE60JU6800. Read more
8 Reasons For
Larger screen size Edit
The Samsung UE60JU6800 has a screen size of 60", but the Samsung UE50JU6800 is only a 50" TV (10" 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.

25cm larger visible diagonal screen size Edit
