Reasons For

Samsung UE49KU6400 Samsung UE50JU6800 Samsung UE55KU6400
4 Reasons For
Local Dimming
The Samsung UE49KU6400 features local dimming (as does the Samsung UE55KU6400), but the Samsung UE50JU6800 does not feature local dimming.

'Local Dimming' on a TV is a function that dims certain sections of the backlight to control the level of light/color intensity in a given part of the screen.

Local dimming can be used to make blacks on the screen appear darker and richer by removing the backlight behind them.

Read more Read less | Edit
Thinner
Samsung UE49KU6400 is 55.2mm thick (as does the Samsung UE55KU6400), but the Samsung UE50JU6800 is a 63.2mm thick TV (8mm 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
20% Cheaper to Run Over Five Years
The Samsung UE49KU6400 only costs £110 to run over five years but the Samsung UE50JU6800 costs £115 to run (5% more) and the Samsung UE55KU6400 costs £137 to run (25% more).

One More Awards
The Samsung UE49KU6400 has 2 awards, whereas the Samsung UE50JU6800 has 1 award and the Samsung UE55KU6400 has 1 award.
7 Reasons For
Faster Motion Interpolation Frequency
The Samsung UE50JU6800 has a motion interpolation frequency of 140Hz, but the Samsung UE49KU6400 and the Samsung UE55KU6400 are both only 120Hz motion interpolation frequency TVs (20Hz slower).

The motion interpolation frequency is the frame rate which the TV is able to artificially create by inserting additional frames into the picture between the frames included in the original video source.

A faster motion interpolation frequency will result in smoother action scenes, less motion blur and a more life like image.

Cheaper by £30
The Samsung UE50JU6800 costs £79 less than the Samsung UE49KU6400 and costs £30 less than the Samsung UE55KU6400.
Vastly Better Expert Reviews
Based on 1 review, the Samsung UE50JU6800 has an average expert review score of 80%, however the Samsung UE49KU6400 has an average rating of 60% (based on 8 reviews) and the Samsung UE55KU6400 has an average rating of 60% (based on 6 reviews).
Better User Reviews
Based on 15 reviews, the Samsung UE50JU6800 has an average user review score of 91%, however the Samsung UE49KU6400 has an average rating of 80% (based on 26 reviews) and the Samsung UE55KU6400 has an average rating of 86% (based on 20 reviews).
Better Brand
Samsung TVs have an average rating of 90.8%, whereas Samsung has an average rating of 90.7%.
Better Benchmark.pl Review Score
The Samsung UE50JU6800 has a Benchmark.pl review score of 80%, whereas the rating of the Samsung UE49KU6400 was only 60% and the rating of the Samsung UE55KU6400 was only 60% from the same site.
Better for Watching Sport
The Samsung UE50JU6800 is better for watching sport than the Samsung UE49KU6400.
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.

6 Reasons For
Larger Display Diagonal
The Samsung UE55KU6400 is a 55" TV. That's 6" larger than the Samsung UE49KU6400 (49") and 5" larger than the Samsung UE50JU6800 (50").

‘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.

What are They Best Used For

Watching Films

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!

Watching Sport

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.
