Reasons For

5 Reasons For
A little lower annual energy consumption Edit
The LG 49UF695 has an annual energy consumption of 126kWh, whereas the Samsung UE50KU6000 is a 129kWh annual energy consumption TV (3kWh 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.

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 £180
The LG 49UF695 is £180 cheaper than the Samsung UE50KU6000.
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".
6 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

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.

A lot lighter Edit
The Samsung UE50KU6000 is a 12.2kg heavy TV, whereas the LG 49UF695 is a 17.5kg heavy TV (5.3kg heavier). Read more

The weight is the total weight of the TV excluding all packaging.

A lighter weight TV will be easier to move around and to mount on a wall. Some of the larger, very heavy TVs may require lightweight partition walls to be reinforced before the TV could be mounted.
