Reasons For

3 Reasons For
Faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Samsung UN40JU7100 is a 240HzHz motion interpolation frequency TV. That's 120Hz faster than the Samsung UN50JS7000 (120HzHz). 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.

7.7mm thinner Edit
The Samsung UN40JU7100 is a 55.8mmmm thick TV, whereas the Samsung UN50JS7000 is a 63.5mmmm thick TV (7.7mm thicker). Read more

The depth of the TV is the thickness of the 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.

User reviews are better
Based on 1 review, the Samsung UN40JU7100 has an average user review score of 100%, but the Samsung UN50JS7000 has an average rating of 93% (based on 11 reviews).
2 Reasons For
9.5" larger screen size Edit
The Samsung UN50JS7000 is a 49.5"" TV. That's 9.5" larger than the Samsung UN40JU7100 (49.5""). 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.

One more RF port Edit
The number of RF ports on the Samsung UN50JS7000 is two, but the Samsung UN40JU7100 only has one RF port. Read more

RF stands for Radio Frequency and an RF port is an older type of input connector for TVs which is most commonly use for connecting cable TV and satellite TV feeds directly to the TV.

Multiple RF ports will allow you to connect multiple RF feeds to the TV at the same time. For example, if the TV has a built in satellite TV decoder then you could connect 2 different satellite dishes to the TV.
