Reasons For

Samsung HG48ED890 Samsung UE49KU6670
4 Reasons For
6" Larger Display Diagonal
The Samsung HG48ED890 has a display diagonal of 55", whereas the Samsung UE49KU6670 is only a 49" 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
Built-In Subwoofer
The Samsung HG48ED890 has a built-in subwoofer, however the Samsung UE49KU6670 does not have a built-in subwoofer.

A subwoofer is a specialised bass speaker for your TV, designed to provide punchy and powerful low notes for music and movies. Alternatively, an underground dog.

A built-in subwoofer will give your TV's sound system a serious boost on the low end bass notes. This will be best experienced in the bangs, thumps and explosions of movies, or in bass-heavy music.

Read more Read less | Edit
Higher RMS Rated Power
The Samsung HG48ED890 is a 40W RMS rated power TV. That's 20W higher than the Samsung UE49KU6670 (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.

3% Cheaper to Run Over Five Years
Over five years the Samsung HG48ED890 is £3 cheaper to run than the Samsung UE49KU6670.
