Reasons For

6 Reasons For
Vastly faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Samsung UE55JU6800 has a motion interpolation frequency of 1,400Hz, however the Samsung UE55KU6500 is only a 100Hz motion interpolation frequency TV (1,300Hz 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.

54% thinner Edit
The Samsung UE55JU6800 has a depth of 63.2mm. That's 34mm thinner than the Samsung UE55KU6500 (97.2mm). 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.

Cheaper by £220
The Samsung UE55JU6800 is £220 cheaper than the Samsung UE55KU6500.
2 shops are selling it
A greater number of shops increases the price competition amongst retailers for the product and also increases the chances of this TV remaining in stock.
Cheaper to run by £41.67
Over five years the Samsung UE55JU6800 is £41.67 cheaper to run than the Samsung UE55KU6500. Read more
Energy efficiency rating is superior
The Samsung UE55JU6800 has an energy efficiency rating of "A+", whereas the Samsung UE55KU6500 has a rating of "A".
1 Reason For
50% faster high frequency rate Edit
The Samsung UE55KU6500 is a 120Hz refresh rate TV. That's 60Hz faster than the Samsung UE55JU6800 (120Hz). Read more

The refresh rate (also known as the high frequency rate) is the number of times that the image on the screen is refreshed per second. It affects how smoothly motion on the screen appears.

Action will appear smoother on TVs with a higher frequency rate: a TV with a high frequency rate of 30Hz refreshes the image on the screen once every 30 times every second. However a TV with a high frequency rate of 60Hz would refresh the image on the screen 60 times every second which means that action scenes would appear smoother.
