Higher energy efficiency rating

3 Reasons For
Moderately larger display diagonal Edit
The Samsung UE55KU6079 has a display diagonal of 55", whereas the Samsung UE50KU6000 is only a 50" TV (5" 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.

Hugely faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Samsung UE55KU6079 has a motion interpolation frequency of 1,300Hz, but the Samsung UE50KU6000 is only a 120Hz motion interpolation frequency TV (1,180Hz 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 UE55KU6079 has an energy efficiency rating of "A", however the Samsung UE50KU6000 has a rating of "A".
