Reasons For

5 Reasons For
Timeshift Edit
The Samsung UE50KU6000 has a timeshift, whereas the Samsung UE55KU6079 does not have a timeshift.
Lower annual energy consumption Edit
The Samsung UE50KU6000 is a 129kWh annual energy consumption TV. That's 25kWh lower than the Samsung UE55KU6079 (154kWh). Read more

The annual energy consumption is the total amount of energy that the TV will use over the course of a whole year, given typical usage levels.

A lower annual energy consumption means that it will cost less each year for you to run your TV.

23% lighter Edit
The Samsung UE50KU6000 has a weight of 12.2kg. That's 2.8kg lighter than the Samsung UE55KU6079 (15kg). Read more

The weight is the total weight of the TV excluding all packaging.

A lighter weight TV will be easier to move around and to mount on a wall. Some of the larger, very heavy TVs may require lightweight partition walls to be reinforced before the TV could be mounted.

£28.85 cheaper to run
The Samsung UE50KU6000 is £28.85 cheaper to run than the Samsung UE55KU6079 over five years. Read more
Higher energy efficiency rating
The energy efficiency rating of the Samsung UE50KU6000 is "A", but the rating of the Samsung UE55KU6079 is "A".
4 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

The display diagonal of a TV is the most common measure of screen size and is the distance from the top left to the bottom right of the visible part of a TV screen 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. 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.

TVs with a bigger display diagonal allow you to make the most of HD content and are great for watching movies.

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. Motion interpolation technology can sometimes create some unwanted side effects such glitches when the technology suddenly activates during an action scene. Most modern TVs will have an option to switch off the motion interpolation if it is not desired.

A faster motion interpolation frequency will result in smoother action scenes, less motion blur and a more life like image.

Two RF ports quantitys Edit
The number of RF ports quantitys on the Samsung UE55KU6079 is two, but the Samsung UE50KU6000 only has one RF ports quantity. Read more

RF stands for Radio Frequency and an RF port is an older type of input connector for TVs which is most commonly use for connecting cable TV and satellite TV feeds directly to the TV.

Multiple RF ports will allow you to connect multiple RF feeds to the TV at the same time. For example, if the TV has a built in satellite TV decoder then you could connect 2 different satellite dishes to the TV.

Energy efficiency rating is better
The Samsung UE55KU6079 has an energy efficiency rating of "A", however the Samsung UE50KU6000 has a rating of "A".
