0.5mm thinner Edit
The Samsung UE40K5589 has a depth of 54.9mm, however the Samsung UE43KU6400 is a 55.4mm thick TV (0.5mm thicker). Read more

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.

The Samsung UE40K5589 is £99.10 cheaper than the Samsung UE43KU6400.
Cheaper to run by £25.64
The Samsung UE40K5589 only costs £88.36 to run over five years however the Samsung UE43KU6400 costs £114.00 to run (29% more). Read more
Superior energy efficiency rating

5 Reasons For
7% larger display diagonal Edit
The Samsung UE43KU6400 is a 43" TV. That's 3" larger than the Samsung UE40K5589 (43"). 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.

Local dimming Edit
The Samsung UE43KU6400 features local dimming, whereas the Samsung UE40K5589 does not feature local dimming. Read more

This means that LEDs can be controlled individually (or in clusters) to control the level of light/color intensity in a given part of the screen.

Ethernet port Edit
The Samsung UE43KU6400 has an ethernet port, but the Samsung UE40K5589 does not. Read more

An ethernet connection is more reliable than wifi and is useful if you do not have a wiki network or the wifi signal is weak. Depending on the speed of your wifi network and ethernet connection may be faster than wifi which means less buffering when streaming content to the TV.
