Reasons For

2 Reasons For
Hugely faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Samsung UE40JU6740 has a motion interpolation frequency of 1,200Hz, but the Sharp LC-42LE761 is only a 300Hz motion interpolation frequency TV (900Hz 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.

A faster motion interpolation frequency will result in smoother action scenes, less motion blur and a more life like image.

Higher RMS rated power Edit
The Samsung UE40JU6740 is a 20W RMS rated power TV. That's 4W higher than the Sharp LC-42LE761 (16W). 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.

5 Reasons For
Larger display diagonal Edit
The Sharp LC-42LE761 is a 42" TV. That's 2" larger than the Samsung UE40JU6740 (42"). Read more

‘Display Diagonal’ is the measure of the size of the TV screen from top-left to bottom-right corner, 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. TVs with a bigger display diagonal allow you to make the most of HD content and are great for watching movies. 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.

3D Edit
The Sharp LC-42LE761 is a 3D TV, whereas the Samsung UE40JU6740 is not 3D. Read more

‘3D’ describes whether the TV can display 3D movies and programmes. Requires compatible 3D glasses to properly function.

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

Common interface (CI) slot Edit
The Sharp LC-42LE761 has a common interface (CI) slot, however the Samsung UE40JU6740 does not have a common interface (CI) slot. Read more
