Reasons For

6 Reasons For
880Hz faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The LG 49UF695 has a motion interpolation frequency of 1,000Hz, however the Samsung UE50KU6000 is only a 120Hz motion interpolation frequency TV (880Hz 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
The LG 49UF695 has a depth of 38.2mm. That's 25mm thinner than the Samsung UE50KU6000 (63.2mm). 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 by £150
The LG 49UF695 is £149.90 cheaper than the Samsung UE50KU6000.
1 shops are selling it
A greater number of sellers increases the price competition amongst retailers for the product and also increases the chances of this TV remaining in stock.
Cheaper to run by £11.21
Over five years the LG 49UF695 only costs £139.64 to run however the Samsung UE50KU6000 costs £150.85 to run (8% more). Read more
Energy efficiency rating is superior
The LG 49UF695 has an energy efficiency rating of "A", whereas the Samsung UE50KU6000 has a rating of "A".
4 Reasons For
1" larger display diagonal Edit
The Samsung UE50KU6000 has a display diagonal of 50", whereas the LG 49UF695 is only a 49" TV (1" 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.

The Samsung UE50KU6000 has a DVI port, however the LG 49UF695 does not have a DVI port.
Energy efficiency rating is better
