Reasons For

6 Reasons For
3D Edit
The Samsung UE48JU7000 is a 3D TV, however the Samsung UE50JU6800 is 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.

Local dimming Edit
The Samsung UE48JU7000 features local dimming, whereas the Samsung UE50JU6800 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.

£38.46 cheaper to run
The Samsung UE48JU7000 only costs £112.39 to run over five years whereas the Samsung UE50JU6800 costs £150.85 to run (34% more). Read more
Higher energy efficiency rating
The energy efficiency rating of the Samsung UE48JU7000 is "A", but the rating of the Samsung UE50JU6800 is "A".
Two more awards
The Samsung UE48JU7000 has 3 awards, however the Samsung UE50JU6800 has 1 award.
Expert reviews are better
The Samsung UE48JU7000 has an average expert review score of 85%, but the Samsung UE50JU6800 has an average rating of 80% (based on 1 review).
4 Reasons For
A little larger display diagonal Edit
The Samsung UE50JU6800 has a display diagonal of 50", whereas the Samsung UE48JU7000 is only a 48" TV (2" 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.

7% thinner Edit
Samsung UE50JU6800 is 63.2mm thick. That's 4.2mm thinner than the Samsung UE48JU7000 (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.

Energy efficiency rating is better
The Samsung UE50JU6800 has an energy efficiency rating of "A", however the Samsung UE48JU7000 has a rating of "A".
Marginally better user reviews
The average user review score of the Samsung UE50JU6800 is 94%, however the average rating of the Samsung UE48JU7000 is 93% (based on 15 reviews).
