Reasons For

1 Reason For
PC in (D-Sub) port Edit
The Samsung UE40KU6000 has a PC in (D-Sub) port, but the Sony KDL-49WD758 does not have a PC in (D-Sub) port. Read more

The socket (port) to receive input from a PC via a D-sub, which is a connector with a characteristic D-shaped metal shield. Also known as a VGA Port.

A D-sub port is needed to connect your TV to older devices and computers that use a VGA connection - generally those made before 2000.

5 Reasons For
9" larger display diagonal Edit
The Sony KDL-49WD758 has a display diagonal of 49", whereas the Samsung UE40KU6000 is only a 40" TV (9" 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 Sony KDL-49WD758 has a motion interpolation frequency of 400Hz, but the Samsung UE40KU6000 is only a 100Hz motion interpolation frequency TV (300Hz 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.

Thinner Edit
Sony KDL-49WD758 is 56mm thick. That's 6.6mm thinner than the Samsung UE40KU6000 (56mm). 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.

0% cheaper to run
Over five years the Sony KDL-49WD758 is £0.39 cheaper to run than the Samsung UE40KU6000. Read more
Energy efficiency rating is better
The Sony KDL-49WD758 has an energy efficiency rating of "A+", however the Samsung UE40KU6000 has a rating of "A".
