Reasons For

Changhong UHD55D5000 Samsung UE50KU6000
3 Reasons For
Larger Display Diagonal
The Changhong UHD55D5000 is a 54.6" TV. That's 4.6" larger than the Samsung UE50KU6000 (50").

‘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.

PC in (D-Sub) Port
The Changhong UHD55D5000 has a PC in (D-Sub) port, but the Samsung UE50KU6000 does not have a PC in (D-Sub) port.

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.

A D-sub port is needed to connect your TV to older devices and computers that use a VGA connection - generally those made before 2000.

Better for Watching Sport
The Changhong UHD55D5000 is better for watching sport than the Samsung UE50KU6000.
When ranking TVs for sport, we’ve concentrated primarily on the most important attributes. First off, we concentrate on the ‘motion interpolation frequency’. This is important for fast-moving spots, since it reduces the amount of blurring on screen. We also take the size of the screen into account - sports matches are far more immersive when viewed on a giant screen! Finally, we look at display brightness and display resolution, so that the games always appear as fully-detailed and bright.

8 Reasons For
Higher RMS Rated Power
The Samsung UE50KU6000 has an RMS rated power of 20W, but the Changhong UHD55D5000 is only a 16W RMS rated power TV (4W lower).

RMS rated power stands for Root Mean Square rated power and it is typically used to measure the power output of the audio element of the TV.

A higher RMS rated power means that the audio system on the TV is more powerful and will be able to play the audio at higher volumes. A higher RMS power may also result in better quality audio at normal volume levels.

Read more Read less | Edit
Ethernet Port
The Samsung UE50KU6000 has an ethernet port, however the Changhong UHD55D5000 does not.

An ethernet port lets you connect the TV directly to your router with an ethernet cable.

An ethernet connection is more reliable than wifi and is useful if you do not have a wiki network or the wifi signal is weak. Depending on the speed of your wifi network and ethernet connection may be faster than wifi which means less buffering when streaming content to the TV.

Read more Read less | Edit
26.8mm Thinner
Samsung UE50KU6000 is 63.2mm thick, but the Changhong UHD55D5000 is a 90mm thick TV (26.8mm thicker).

The thickness of a 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.

Read more Read less | Edit
Common Interface (CI) Slot
The Samsung UE50KU6000 has a common interface (CI) slot, however the Changhong UHD55D5000 does not have a common interface (CI) slot.

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.

DVI Port
The Samsung UE50KU6000 has a DVI port, however the Changhong UHD55D5000 does not have a DVI port.
Edit
20% Cheaper to Run Over Five Years
The Samsung UE50KU6000 only costs £115 to run over five years but the Changhong UHD55D5000 costs £144 to run (25% more).

Better Brand
Samsung TVs have an average rating of 90.7%, whereas Changhong has an average rating of 79.9%.
Better for Watching Films
The Samsung UE50KU6000 is better for watching films than the Changhong UHD55D5000.
When ranking TVs for their suitability to display films, we’ve concentrated on several key attributes. These include contrast ratio and local dimming, which allow the dark colours on the screen to look deeper and richer - helpful for nighttime scenes. Also the screen resolution plays a part - 4K and higher resolutions mean that the image will be clearer and more detailed. Finally the size of the screen is also important - explosions and big dramatic reveals are so much more effective when you don’t have to squint to see the screen!
