Reasons For

Samsung UE50KU6000 Samsung UE55KU6079
4 Reasons For
Timeshift
The Samsung UE50KU6000 supports timeshift, whereas the Samsung UE55KU6079 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.

Better for Watching Films
The Samsung UE50KU6000 is better for watching films than the Samsung UE55KU6079.
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!

4 Reasons For
Moderately Larger Display Diagonal
The Samsung UE55KU6079 has a display diagonal of 55", whereas 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
Hugely Faster Motion Interpolation Frequency
The Samsung UE55KU6079 has a motion interpolation frequency of 1,300Hz, but the Samsung UE50KU6000 is only a 120Hz motion interpolation frequency TV (1,180Hz 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.

Better for Watching Sport
The Samsung UE55KU6079 is better for watching sport than the Samsung UE50KU6000.
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.
Read more Read less
Better for Playing Games
The Samsung UE55KU6079 is better for playing games than the Samsung UE50KU6000.
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.
