Reasons For

3 Reasons For
Local dimming Edit
The Samsung UE40JU6000 features local dimming, but the Samsung UE43J5500 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.

4.3mm thinner Edit
Samsung UE40JU6000 is 62.6mm thick, but the Samsung UE43J5500 is a 66.9mm thick TV (4.3mm thicker). 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.

User reviews are a bit better
The Samsung UE40JU6000 has an average user review score of 85% based on 74 reviews, however the Samsung UE43J5500 has an average rating of 84% (based on 104 reviews).
5 Reasons For
3" larger display diagonal Edit
The Samsung UE43J5500 has a display diagonal of 43", however the Samsung UE40JU6000 is only a 40" TV (3" 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.
