Reasons For

1 Reason For
One more HDMI port Edit
The number of HDMI ports on the Samsung HG48ND678 is three, but the Samsung UN50J5200 only has two HDMI ports. Read more

The HDMI ports quantity is the number of ports that the TV has that will accept a HDMI cable. HDMI is the most common type of cable used to connect modern TVs, DVD players, games consoles etc.

A greater number of HDMI ports will allow you to permanently connect more devices to the TV and will reduce the need to reach around the back of the TV to unplug and plug in cables when switching between devices.

5 Reasons For
4% larger screen size Edit
The Samsung UN50J5200 is a 49.5"" TV. That's 1.5" larger than the Samsung HG48ND678 (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 UN50J5200 is two, but the Samsung HG48ND678 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.

Lighter Edit
The Samsung UN50J5200 is a 10.5kgg heavy TV. That's 0.6g lighter than the Samsung HG48ND678 (10.5kgg). Read more

The weight is the total weight of the TV excluding all packaging.

A lighter weight TV will be easier to move around and to mount on a wall. Some of the larger, very heavy TVs may require lightweight partition walls to be reinforced before the TV could be mounted.

$52 cheaper

Available from 4 shops
A greater number of stores increases the chances of this TV remaining in stock and also increases the price competition amongst retailers for the product.
