Reasons For

Samsung UE50KU6000 Samsung UE55K5600
4 Reasons For
High Dynamic Range Imaging (HDRI)
The Samsung UE50KU6000 features High Dynamic Range Imaging (HDRI), however the Samsung UE55K5600 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.

Local Dimming

Edit
4 Reasons For
Marginally Larger Display Diagonal
The Samsung UE55K5600 has a display diagonal of 55", however the Samsung UE50KU6000 is only a 50" TV (5" 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
8.1mm Thinner
The Samsung UE55K5600 is a 55.1mm thick TV. That's 8.1mm thinner than the Samsung UE50KU6000 (63.2mm).

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.
