Reasons For

2 Reasons For
11% larger display diagonal Edit
The LOEWE Connect 48 is a 48" TV. That's 5" larger than the Samsung UE43KS7500 (43"). 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.

40W higher RMS rated power Edit
The LOEWE Connect 48 has an RMS rated power of 80W, whereas the Samsung UE43KS7500 is only a 40W RMS rated power TV (40W lower). 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.

6 Reasons For
One more USB 2.0 ports quantity Edit
The number of USB 2.0 ports quantitys on the Samsung UE43KS7500 is three, but the LOEWE Connect 48 only has two USB 2.0 ports quantitys. Read more

More USB ports will allow you to connect more USB devices to the TV simultaneously without needing to continuous plug in and unplug cables.

50kWh lower annual energy consumption Edit
The Samsung UE43KS7500 has an annual energy consumption of 97kWh, whereas the LOEWE Connect 48 is a 147kWh annual energy consumption TV (50kWh higher). Read more
