Cheaper by £109
The LG 43UH661 costs £359.99, whereas the Samsung UE49K5510 is £469.00.
Better selling
The LG 43UH661 ranks No. 2536 by number of sales, but the Samsung UE49K5510 ranks No. 53859.
Energy efficiency rating is higher
The LG 43UH661 has an energy efficiency rating of "A+", but the Samsung UE49K5510 has a rating of "A+".
Considerably better user reviews
The average user review score of the LG 43UH661 is 86% based on 43 reviews, but the average rating of the Samsung UE49K5510 is 70% (based on 14 reviews).
5 Reasons For
Larger display diagonal Edit
The Samsung UE49K5510 has a display diagonal of 49", but the LG 43UH661 is only a 43" TV (6" 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.

Bluetooth Edit
The Samsung UE49K5510 supports Bluetooth, however the LG 43UH661 does not.
Thinner Edit
The Samsung UE49K5510 has a depth of 55.1mm. That's 22.1mm thinner than the LG 43UH661 (55.1mm). 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.

1 shops are selling it
A greater number of sellers increases the price competition amongst retailers for the product and also increases the chances of this TV remaining in stock.
Energy efficiency rating is superior
The Samsung UE49K5510 has an energy efficiency rating of "A+", whereas the LG 43UH661 has a rating of "A+".
