Reasons For

LG 49UH850 Samsung UE49K5600
5 Reasons For
3D
The LG 49UH850 is 3D, however the Samsung UE49K5600 is not 3D.

‘3D’ describes whether the TV can display 3D movies and programmes. Requires compatible 3D glasses to properly function.

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. 3D compatible TVs allow you to watch 3D content. For most TVs you will need to wear special glasses to see the 3D effect.

50% Higher RMS Rated Power
The LG 49UH850 is a 40W RMS rated power TV. That's 20W higher than the Samsung UE49K5600 (20W).

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
High Dynamic Range Imaging (HDRI)
The LG 49UH850 features High Dynamic Range Imaging (HDRI), but the Samsung UE49K5600 does not feature High Dynamic Range Imaging (HDRI).

High Dynamic Range Imaging (HDRI) on a TV is a system that allows preserves details in the darkest and brightest areas of the screen that are lost using standard display methods.

HDRI on a TV allows for better contrast levels, greater brightness levels and a wider colour palette on films and TV programs. This translates into more natural, true-to-life colours that are closer to how we see them in real life.

Read more Read less | Edit
Thinner
The LG 49UH850 is a 51.5mm thick TV. That's 3.4mm thinner than the Samsung UE49K5600 (54.9mm).

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 LG 49UH850 has a common interface (CI) slot, but the Samsung UE49K5600 does not.

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.
