Better User Reviews
Based on 122 user reviews, the LG 43UH661 has an average review score of 85%, but the Samsung UE49K5510 has an average rating of 77% (based on 18 reviews).
5 Reasons For
Larger Display Diagonal
The Samsung UE49K5510 has a display diagonal of 49", but the LG 43UH661 is only a 43" TV (6" smaller).

‘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.

Read more Read less | Edit
Bluetooth
The Samsung UE49K5510 supports Bluetooth, however the LG 43UH661 does not.

A Bluetooth connection on your TV means it can send and receive data from Bluetooth-enabled devices, such as headphones, mobile phones or remotes.

A Bluetooth connection on your phone allows you to use many newer wireless devices with your TV, such as wireless headphones and controlling your TV using your phone.

Read more Read less | Edit
Thinner
The Samsung UE49K5510 has a thickness of 55.1mm. That's 22.1mm thinner than the LG 43UH661 (77.2mm).

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 UE49K5510 has a common interface (CI) slot, whereas the LG 43UH661 does not.

A common interface slot provides compatibility with pay-per-view cards.
