Reasons For

4 Reasons For
14% thinner Edit

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.

Cheaper to run by $4.76
The Samsung UN40JU7100 only costs $66.86 to run over five years however the Samsung UN50JU6500 costs $71.62 to run (7% more). Read more
User reviews are a lot better
The Samsung UN40JU7100 has an average user review score of 100%, whereas the Samsung UN50JU6500 has an average rating of 88% (based on 5 reviews).
2 Reasons For
Larger display diagonal Edit
The Samsung UN50JU6500 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 ports quantity Edit
The Samsung UN50JU6500 has two RF ports quantitys, however the Samsung UN40JU7100 only has one RF ports quantity. 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.
