Reasons For

5 Reasons For
3D Edit
The LG 49UH850 is 3D, and so is the LG 49UX960, however the Samsung UE49KS7000 and the Samsung UE49KS8000 are not 3D. Read more

3D technology has become increasingly popular as the amount of 3D film and TV content has increased dramatically in recent years. All 3D TVs will also display regular 2D content and most will allow you to switch on and off the 3D effect on 3D content. Most 3D TVs require you to wear special 3D glasses in order to view the content in 3D, however some of the newer 3D TVs require no 3D glasses at all. Of those TVs that do require glasses, there are two main types of 3D technology: passive and active. Passive 3D uses glasses similar to those that you wear in the cinema. The glasses have polarised lenses which ensure that the correct image is displayed to each eye. The main advantage of passive 3D is that the glasses are very light and comfortable to wear, but it can result in a less bright image. Active 3D uses battery powered glasses which control active shutters in each lens. These shutters constantly open and close very quickly in sync with two different images that are being displayed by the TV. This ensures that the correct image is displayed to each eye. The main advantage of active 3D is that the image is brighter, however the glasses are heavier and more expensive.

3D compatible TVs allow you to watch 3D content. For most TVs you will need to wear special glasses to see the 3D effect.

Two RF ports quantitys Edit
The LG 49UH850 is a two RF ports quantity TV, and so does the LG 49UX960, whereas the Samsung UE49KS8000 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.

Cheaper by £49
The LG 49UH850 costs £600.00, whereas the Samsung UE49KS7000 is £649.00 and the Samsung UE49KS8000 is £899.95.
Better selling
The LG 49UH850 ranks No. 13019 by number of sales, but the Samsung UE49KS8000 ranks No. 17992.
Energy efficiency rating is higher
The LG 49UH850 has an energy efficiency rating of "A", but the Samsung UE49KS7000 has a rating of "A" and the Samsung UE49KS8000 has a rating of "A".
