Reasons For

5 Reasons For
4% thinner Edit
The Samsung HG32ED690 is a 64.9mm thick TV. That's 2.2mm thinner than the Samsung UE48J5600 (67.1mm). 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 HG32ED690 has a common interface (CI) slot, but the Samsung UE48J5600 does not have a common interface (CI) slot. 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.

PC in (D-Sub) port Edit
The Samsung HG32ED690 has a PC in (D-Sub) port, but the Samsung UE48J5600 does not have a PC in (D-Sub) port. Read more

The socket (port) to receive input from a PC via a D-sub, which is a connector with a characteristic D-shaped metal shield. Also known as a VGA Port.

Energy efficiency rating is higher
The Samsung HG32ED690 has an energy efficiency rating of "A+", but the Samsung UE48J5600 has a rating of "A+".
2 Reasons For
Larger display diagonal Edit
The Samsung UE48J5600 is a 48" TV. That's 16" larger than the Samsung HG32ED690 (48"). 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.

Superior energy efficiency rating
The energy efficiency rating of the Samsung UE48J5600 is "A+", whereas the rating of the Samsung HG32ED690 is "A+".
