Reasons For

6 Reasons For
A bit larger display diagonal Edit
The LG 49UF850 has a display diagonal of 49" (as does the LG 49UH850), but the Samsung UE48JS8500 and the Samsung UE48JU7000 are both only 48" TVs (1" 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.

Vastly faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The LG 49UF850 has a motion interpolation frequency of 1,600Hz, however the LG 49UH850 is only a 200Hz motion interpolation frequency TV (1,400Hz slower) and the Samsung UE48JS8500 is only an 850Hz motion interpolation frequency TV (750Hz 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.

27kWh lower annual energy consumption Edit
The LG 49UF850 has an annual energy consumption of 96kWh (as does the Samsung UE48JU7000), whereas the LG 49UH850 is a 123kWh annual energy consumption TV (27kWh higher) and the Samsung UE48JS8500 is a 118kWh annual energy consumption TV (22kWh higher). 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.

82% thinner Edit
The LG 49UF850 has a depth of 51.3mm. That's 0.2mm thinner than the LG 49UH850 (67.4mm), 41.6mm thinner than the Samsung UE48JS8500 (67.4mm) and 16.1mm thinner than the Samsung UE48JU7000 (67.4mm). 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.

Cheaper to run by £30.44
Over five years the LG 49UF850 is £30.05 cheaper to run than the LG 49UH850, £30.44 cheaper to run than the Samsung UE48JS8500 and £4.80 cheaper to run than the Samsung UE48JU7000. Read more
Energy efficiency rating is superior
The LG 49UF850 has an energy efficiency rating of "A+", whereas the LG 49UH850 has a rating of "A", the Samsung UE48JS8500 has a rating of "A" and the Samsung UE48JU7000 has a rating of "A".

RMS rated power stands for Root Mean Square rated power and it is typically used to measure the power output of the audio element of the TV.

A higher RMS rated power means that the audio system on the TV is more powerful and will be able to play the audio at higher volumes. A higher RMS power may also result in better quality audio at normal volume levels.

Common interface (CI) Edit
The LG 49UH850 has a common interface (CI), whereas the Samsung UE48JS8500 and the Samsung UE48JU7000 do not have a common interface (CI). Read more

A common interface slot provides compatibility with pay-per-view cards.

A common interface slot allows you to install pay per view cards. For example Sky TV sell pay per cards for watching football and boxing and WWE Network sell cards for watching wrestling.

Cheaper by £74
The LG 49UH850 is £74 cheaper than the LG 49UF850, £270 cheaper than the Samsung UE48JS8500 and £224 cheaper than the Samsung UE48JU7000.

More USB ports will allow you to connect more USB devices to the TV simultaneously without needing to continuous plug in and unplug cables.

One more HDMI ports quantity Edit
The number of HDMI ports quantitys on the Samsung UE48JS8500 is four (as does the Samsung UE48JU7000), but the LG 49UH850 only has three HDMI ports quantitys. Read more

The HDMI ports quantity is the number of ports that the TV has that will accept a HDMI cable. HDMI is the most common type of cable used to connect modern TVs, DVD players, games consoles etc.

A greater number of HDMI ports will allow you to permanently connect more devices to the TV and will reduce the need to reach around the back of the TV to unplug and plug in cables when switching between devices.

The Samsung UE48JU7000 does not have a common interface (CI) (As does the the Samsung UE48JS8500), whereas the LG 49UH850 does. Read more

16.1mm thicker Edit
The Samsung UE48JU7000 is a 67.4mm thick TV, whereas the LG 49UF850 is a 51.3mm thick TV (16.1mm thinner), the LG 49UH850 is a 51.5mm thick TV (15.9mm thinner) and the Samsung UE48JS8500 is a 92.9mm thick TV (25.5mm thicker). 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.
