Read more Read less
Superior Energy Efficiency Rating
The energy efficiency rating of the Samsung UE43J5600 is "A+", whereas the rating of the Samsung UE49KU6670 is "A".
4 Reasons For
6" Larger Display Diagonal
The Samsung UE49KU6670 is a 49" TV. That's 6" larger than the Samsung UE43J5600 (43").

‘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.

High Dynamic Range Imaging (HDRI)
The Samsung UE49KU6670 features High Dynamic Range Imaging (HDRI), however the Samsung UE43J5600 does not.

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.

Better for Watching Films
The Samsung UE49KU6670 is better for watching films than the Samsung UE43J5600.
When ranking TVs for their suitability to display films, we’ve concentrated on several key attributes. These include contrast ratio and local dimming, which allow the dark colours on the screen to look deeper and richer - helpful for nighttime scenes. Also the screen resolution plays a part - 4K and higher resolutions mean that the image will be clearer and more detailed. Finally the size of the screen is also important - explosions and big dramatic reveals are so much more effective when you don’t have to squint to see the screen!

Better for Watching Sport
The Samsung UE49KU6670 is better for watching sport than the Samsung UE43J5600.
When ranking TVs for sport, we’ve concentrated primarily on the most important attributes. First off, we concentrate on the ‘motion interpolation frequency’. This is important for fast-moving spots, since it reduces the amount of blurring on screen. We also take the size of the screen into account - sports matches are far more immersive when viewed on a giant screen! Finally, we look at display brightness and display resolution, so that the games always appear as fully-detailed and bright.
