Reasons For

Samsung UE55JU7000 Samsung UE55KS7000
3 Reasons For
3D
The Samsung UE55JU7000 is a 3D TV, however the Samsung UE55KS7000 is not 3D.

‘3D’ describes whether the TV can display 3D movies and programmes. Requires compatible 3D glasses to properly function.

3D technology has become increasingly popular as the amount of 3D film and TV content has increased dramatically in recent years. All 3D TVs will also display regular 2D content and most will allow you to switch on and off the 3D effect on 3D content. 3D compatible TVs allow you to watch 3D content. For most TVs you will need to wear special glasses to see the 3D effect.

User Reviews Are Appreciably Better
Based on 7 reviews, the average user review score of the Samsung UE55JU7000 is 89%, but the average rating of the Samsung UE55KS7000 is 79% (based on 46 reviews).
5 Reasons For
20W Higher RMS Rated Power
The Samsung UE55KS7000 has an RMS rated power of 40W, however the Samsung UE55JU7000 is only a 20W RMS rated power TV (20W lower).

RMS rated power stands for Root Mean Square rated power and it is typically used to measure the power output of the audio element of the TV.

A higher RMS rated power means that the audio system on the TV is more powerful and will be able to play the audio at higher volumes. A higher RMS power may also result in better quality audio at normal volume levels.

Read more Read less | Edit
Two Point One Loudspeakers
The Samsung UE55KS7000 is a two point one loudspeaker TV, whereas the Samsung UE55JU7000 only has two loudspeakers.

The number of loudspeakers is the total number of speakers provided with the TV, either inside the TV casing or as external speakers.

A greater number of speakers will allow for better quality audio and different frequencies. Multiple external speakers will enable to the TV to play surround sound audio.

Read more Read less | Edit
Vastly Thinner
The Samsung UE55KS7000 has a thickness of 44.3mm, however the Samsung UE55JU7000 is a 67.4mm thick TV (23.1mm 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.

More Shops Are Selling it
A greater number of retailers increases the price competition amongst retailers for this TV and also increases the chances of the product remaining in stock.
Better for Watching Films
The Samsung UE55KS7000 is better for watching films than the Samsung UE55JU7000.
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!

Product Quality

For both the Samsung UE55JU7000 and the Samsung UE55KS7000 people mentioned that the product quality was very good.
Samsung UE55JU7000 Samsung UE55KS7000
