8 Reasons For
3D Edit
The Samsung UE55JU7000 is a 3D TV, but the Samsung UE55JU6800 is not 3D. 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.

Built-in subwoofer Edit
The Samsung UE55JU7000 has a built-in subwoofer, whereas the Samsung UE55JU6800 does not.
One more RF ports quantity Edit
The Samsung UE55JU7000 has two RF ports quantitys, however the Samsung UE55JU6800 only has one RF ports quantity. Read more

4% lower annual energy consumption Edit
The Samsung UE55JU7000 is a 114kWh annual energy consumption TV. That's 4kWh lower than the Samsung UE55JU6800 (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.

8% lighter Edit
Samsung UE55JU7000 is 15.4kg heavy. That's 1.2kg lighter than the Samsung UE55JU6800 (15.4kg). Read more

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.
