Reasons For

LG 49UH850 Samsung UE49KS7000
2 Reasons For
3D
The LG 49UH850 is a 3D TV, but the Samsung UE49KS7000 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.

User Reviews Are Better
Based on 9 user reviews, the average review score of the LG 49UH850 is 89%, whereas the average rating of the Samsung UE49KS7000 is 80% (based on 49 reviews).
4 Reasons For
Zero Point One More Loudspeakers
The number of loudspeakers on the Samsung UE49KS7000 is two point one, but the LG 49UH850 only has two loudspeakers.

8.1mm Thinner
The Samsung UE49KS7000 is a 43.4mm thick TV. That's 8.1mm thinner than the LG 49UH850 (51.5mm).

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.
