5 Reasons For
Larger display diagonal Edit
The Samsung UN50J5200 is a 49.5" TV. That's 1.9" larger than the Samsung UN48J5500 (49.5"). Read more

‘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.

Faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Samsung UN50J5200 is a 120Hz motion interpolation frequency TV. That's 60Hz faster than the Samsung UN48J5500 (120Hz). 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.

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

Quite thinner Edit
Samsung UN50J5200 is 60.96mm thick, but the Samsung UN48J5500 is a 66mm thick TV (5.04mm 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.

$102 cheaper
The Samsung UN50J5200 costs $101.98 less than the Samsung UN48J5500.
Available from 9 shops
A greater number of retailers increases the chances of this TV remaining in stock and also increases the price competition amongst retailers for the product.

The Samsung UN48J5500 is a 47.6" TV. That's 1.9" smaller than the Samsung UN50J5200 (49.5"). Read more
