Reasons For

3 Reasons For
Larger screen size Edit
The Samsung UN55HU7250 is a 55"" TV. That's 0.4" larger than the Samsung UN55JU7100 (54.6""). Read more

The display diagonal of a TV is the most common measure of screen size and is the distance from the top left to the bottom right of the visible part of a TV screen 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. 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.

TVs with a bigger display diagonal allow you to make the most of HD content and are great for watching movies.

Two composite video in ports Edit
The Samsung UN55HU7250 is a two composite video in port TV, whereas the Samsung UN55JU7100 only has one composite video in port. Read more

A composite video port is mainly used for connecting older devices to the TV, such as older video cameras or video recorders. Composite video connections can only display images up to a resolutionsof 640 x 480 pixels so the quality of image displayed via a composite video connection will be quite low.

Multiple composite video ports will allow you to connect more than one older video device. However it is very unlikely that you will use the composite video port at all.

User reviews are better
Based on 1 user review, the Samsung UN55HU7250 has an average review score of 100%, however the Samsung UN55JU7100 has an average rating of 94% (based on 239 reviews).
3 Reasons For
50% faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Samsung UN55JU7100 is a 240HzHz motion interpolation frequency TV. That's 120Hz faster than the Samsung UN55HU7250 (240HzHz). Read more

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. Motion interpolation technology can sometimes create some unwanted side effects such glitches when the technology suddenly activates during an action scene. Most modern TVs will have an option to switch off the motion interpolation if it is not desired.

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

Lighter Edit
The Samsung UN55JU7100 has a weight of 17.3kgg. That's 1.6g lighter than the Samsung UN55HU7250 (17.3kgg). Read more
