The Samsung UE40J5200 costs £279.00, whereas the Samsung UE40JU6000 is £379.00 and the Samsung UE40K5500 is £299.90.
£35.25 cheaper to run
Over five years the Samsung UE40J5200 only costs £69.13 to run whereas the Samsung UE40JU6000 costs £104.38 to run (51% more) and the Samsung UE40K5500 costs £88.36 to run (28% more). Read more
Energy efficiency rating is higher
The Samsung UE40J5200 has an energy efficiency rating of "A+", but the Samsung UE40JU6000 has a rating of "A" and the Samsung UE40K5500 has a rating of "A".
3 Reasons For
Local dimming Edit
The Samsung UE40JU6000 features local dimming (as does the Samsung UE40K5500), however the Samsung UE40J5200 does not feature local dimming. Read more

'Local Dimming' on a TV is a function that dims certain sections of the backlight to control the level of light/color intensity in a given part of the screen.

Local dimming can be used to make blacks on the screen appear darker and richer by removing the backlight behind them.

A lot thinner Edit
The Samsung UE40JU6000 has a depth of 49.5mm, however the Samsung UE40J5200 is a 72mm thick TV (22.5mm thicker) and the Samsung UE40K5500 is a 55.1mm thick TV (5.6mm 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.

User reviews are significantly better
Based on 74 user reviews, the Samsung UE40JU6000 has an average review score of 85%, whereas the Samsung UE40J5200 has an average rating of 40% (based on 1 review).
