Reasons For

Samsung HG32ED690 Samsung UE48J5100
6 Reasons For
Voice Control
The Samsung HG32ED690 features voice control, whereas the Samsung UE48J5100 does not.

Voice Control on a TV is a system that allows users to control various functions of their TV (volume, channels, etc) purely with voice commands, rather than having to use the remote.

Voice controls mean that you can control the TV from your couch without having to find a remote or move to manually change the channel or adjust the settings, leading to a more streamlined experience.

Read more Read less | Edit
Wi-Fi
The Samsung HG32ED690 supports Wi-Fi, whereas the Samsung UE48J5100 does not support Wi-Fi.

A Wifi (wireless LAN connection) on your TV means that you can connect your TV directly to your WiFi network.

A wifi connection means that connecting your TV to the net will be easier and can be done without cables.

Read more Read less | Edit
Ethernet Port
The Samsung HG32ED690 has an ethernet port, however the Samsung UE48J5100 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
0.3mm Thinner
Samsung HG32ED690 is 64.9mm thick, but the Samsung UE48J5100 is a 65.2mm thick TV (0.3mm 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
PC in (D-Sub) Port
The Samsung HG32ED690 has a PC in (D-Sub) port, however the Samsung UE48J5100 does not.

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.

41% Cheaper to Run Over Five Years
The Samsung HG32ED690 only costs £41 to run over five years but the Samsung UE48J5100 costs £69 to run (68% more).
Read more Read less
2 Reasons For
34% Larger Display Diagonal
The Samsung UE48J5100 is a 48" TV. That's 16" larger than the Samsung HG32ED690 (32").

‘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.
