Reasons For

1 Reason For
Wi-Fi Edit
The Samsung UE55J5500 supports Wi-Fi (as does the Samsung UE55K5500), whereas the Samsung UE58J5200 does not support Wi-Fi. Read more

A Wifi (wireless LAN connection) on your TV means that you can connect your TV directly to your WiFi network.

A wifi connection means that connecting your TV to the net will be easier and can be done without cables.

7 Reasons For
Local dimming Edit
The Samsung UE55K5500 features local dimming, but the Samsung UE55J5500 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.

Wi-Fi Edit

A wifi connection means that connecting your TV to the net will be easier and can be done without cables.

Thinner Edit
Samsung UE55K5500 is 55.1mm thick. That's 12.7mm thinner than the Samsung UE55J5500 (88.7mm) and 33.6mm thinner than the Samsung UE58J5200 (88.7mm). 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.

Common interface (CI) slot Edit
The Samsung UE55K5500 has a common interface (CI) slot, and so does the Samsung UE58J5200, however the Samsung UE55J5500 does not. 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 £141
The Samsung UE55K5500 costs £140.99 less than the Samsung UE55J5500 and costs £240.15 less than the Samsung UE58J5200.
30 shops are selling it
A greater number of sellers increases the chances of the product remaining in stock and also increases the price competition amongst retailers for this TV.
21% cheaper to run
Over five years the Samsung UE55K5500 only costs £108.96 to run but the Samsung UE55J5500 costs £138.03 to run (27% more) and the Samsung UE58J5200 costs £112.17 to run (3% more). Read more
3 Reasons For
Larger display diagonal Edit
The Samsung UE58J5200 is a 58" TV. That's 3" larger than the Samsung UE55J5500 and the Samsung UE55K5500 (58"). 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.
