Reasons For

Samsung UE43KU6000 Samsung UE43KU6079 Samsung UE43KU6500
5 Reasons For
Timeshift
The Samsung UE43KU6000 supports timeshift, and so does the Samsung UE43KU6500, but the Samsung UE43KU6079 does not support timeshift.

'Timeshifting' on a TV is the ability to record movies and programs to be viewed or listened to after the live broadcast.

TVs with timeshifting abilities mean that you don't have to watch programs when they are first broadcast - you can record them and watch them at your leisure.

Read more Read less | Edit
44% Thinner
Samsung UE43KU6000 is 62.6mm thick, and so does the Samsung UE43KU6079. That's 27.4mm thinner than the Samsung UE43KU6500 (90mm).

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.

Cheaper by £40
The Samsung UE43KU6000 costs £40 less than the Samsung UE43KU6500.
Better for Watching Films
The Samsung UE43KU6000 is better for watching films than the Samsung UE43KU6079.
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 UE43KU6000 is better for watching sport than the Samsung UE43KU6079.
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.

Playing Games

When ranking TVs for games, we’ve concentrated on a number of key attributes: primarily ‘motion interpolation frequency’ and ‘high refresh rate’. Both connect to the quality of the image coming from the games console to the TV - both reduce instances of blurring caused by fast moving objects on the screen, and allow the image to appear more detailed and cleaner.
