Superior energy efficiency rating
The energy efficiency rating of the Salora 40LED1500 is "A", whereas the rating of the Samsung UE49KS8000 is "A".
5 Reasons For
9" larger display diagonal Edit
The Samsung UE49KS8000 has a display diagonal of 49", whereas the Salora 40LED1500 is only a 40" TV (9" smaller). 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.

67% higher RMS rated power Edit
The Samsung UE49KS8000 is a 60W RMS rated power TV. That's 40W higher than the Salora 40LED1500 (60W). 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.

Two point one more loudspeakers Edit
The Samsung UE49KS8000 has four point one loudspeakers, however the Salora 40LED1500 only has two loudspeakers. Read more

The number of loudspeakers is the total number of speakers provided with the TV, either inside the TV casing or as external speakers.

A greater number of speakers will allow for better quality audio and different frequencies. Multiple external speakers will enable to the TV to play surround sound audio.

Hugely thinner Edit
Samsung UE49KS8000 is 42.5mm thick. That's 47.5mm thinner than the Salora 40LED1500 (42.5mm). 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.

Energy efficiency rating is better
The Samsung UE49KS8000 has an energy efficiency rating of "A", however the Salora 40LED1500 has a rating of "A".
