Reasons For

4 Reasons For
Local dimming Edit
The Samsung UE49KU6400 features local dimming, but the Samsung UE50JU6800 does not feature local dimming. Read more

'Local Dimming' on a TV is a function that dims certain sections of the backlight to control the level of light/color intensity in a given part of the screen.

Local dimming can be used to make blacks on the screen appear darker and richer by removing the backlight behind them.

Thinner Edit
Samsung UE49KU6400 is 55.2mm thick, but the Samsung UE50JU6800 is a 63.2mm thick TV (8mm 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.

4% cheaper to run
The Samsung UE49KU6400 only costs £144.44 to run over five years but the Samsung UE50JU6800 costs £150.85 to run (4% more). Read more
Better energy efficiency rating
The energy efficiency rating of the Samsung UE49KU6400 is "A", however the rating of the Samsung UE50JU6800 is "A".
4 Reasons For
Slightly larger display diagonal Edit
The Samsung UE50JU6800 has a display diagonal of 50", whereas the Samsung UE49KU6400 is only a 49" TV (1" 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.

Faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Samsung UE50JU6800 has a motion interpolation frequency of 140Hz, but the Samsung UE49KU6400 is only a 120Hz motion interpolation frequency TV (20Hz 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.

Energy efficiency rating is better
The Samsung UE50JU6800 has an energy efficiency rating of "A", however the Samsung UE49KU6400 has a rating of "A".
Considerably better user reviews
The average user review score of the Samsung UE50JU6800 is 94%, however the average rating of the Samsung UE49KU6400 is 79% (based on 15 reviews).
