Our review analysis indicates that Samsung UN50NU6900 has exceptional user reviews with 95% of buyers recommending this television to others.

15 Reasons For for Choosing the Samsung UN50NU6900

Screen Mirroring

The Samsung UN50NU6900 supports screen mirroring, and so do the LG OLED65C9PUA and the Sony XBR49X800G, however the TCL 43S405 and the VIZIO D50E1 do not. More ...

Screen Mirroring on a TV is a system that allows you to view the screen from a computer or mobile phone on your TV.

Screen mirroring on a TV is helpful because it allows you to easily display media and info running on a phone or laptop to a big screen for easy viewing with a minimum of effort.

Smartphone Remote App

The Samsung UN50NU6900 has a smartphone remote app (as does the LG OLED65C9PUA), whereas the Sony XBR49X800G, the TCL 43S405 and the VIZIO D50E1 do not have this feature. More ...

'Smartphone Remote' states whether the TV has the capability to be controlled using your smartphone, acting as a surrogate remote. This will usually require the installation of an app onto your phone.

Using your smartphone as a remote is helpful because it means that you don't have to use the official remote to control the TV - your smartphone will work instead. Helpful since you will quite often already have it in your pocket!

Game Mode

The Samsung UN50NU6900 has a game mode (as does the LG OLED65C9PUA), however the Sony XBR49X800G, the TCL 43S405 and the VIZIO D50E1 do not have this feature. More ...

'Game Mode' on a TV is a specialist mode that scales down the graphical fidelity of the video in order to free up processing power for response time.

In effect this trades slightly worse graphical capabilities for lessened input lag, meaning a smoother, more responsive experience when gaming.

High Dynamic Range Imaging (HDRI)

The Samsung UN50NU6900 features High Dynamic Range Imaging (HDRI) (as do the LG OLED65C9PUA and the Sony XBR49X800G), whereas the TCL 43S405 and the VIZIO D50E1 do not feature this benefit. More ...

High Dynamic Range Imaging (HDRI) on a TV is a system that allows preserves details in the darkest and brightest areas of the screen that are lost using standard display methods.

HDRI on a TV allows for better contrast levels, greater brightness levels and a wider colour palette on films and TV programs. This translates into more natural, true-to-life colours that are closer to how we see them in real life.

Digital Clean View

The Samsung UN50NU6900 supports Digital Clean View, whereas the LG OLED65C9PUA, the Sony XBR49X800G, the TCL 43S405 and the VIZIO D50E1 do not. More ...

'Digital Clean View' is a function on Smart TVs that reduced the noise from low-quality signals.

Using Digital Clean View can drastically improve the picture quality on both analogue and digital signals by removing as much noise and blurring as possible from the picture.

Wi-Fi

The Samsung UN50NU6900 supports Wi-Fi, and so do the LG OLED65C9PUA, the Sony XBR49X800G and the VIZIO D50E1, but the TCL 43S405 does not. More ...

A Wifi (wireless LAN connection) on your TV means that you can connect your TV directly to your WiFi network.

A wifi connection means that connecting your TV to the net will be easier and can be done without cables.

Ethernet Port

The Samsung UN50NU6900 has an ethernet port (as do the LG OLED65C9PUA, the Sony XBR49X800G and the VIZIO D50E1), whereas the TCL 43S405 does not have this feature. More ...

An ethernet port lets you connect the TV directly to your router with an ethernet cable.

An ethernet connection is more reliable than wifi and is useful if you do not have a wiki network or the wifi signal is weak. Depending on the speed of your wifi network and ethernet connection may be faster than wifi which means less buffering when streaming content to the TV.

Wi-Fi Direct

The Samsung UN50NU6900 supports Wi-Fi Direct, however the LG OLED65C9PUA, the Sony XBR49X800G, the TCL 43S405 and the VIZIO D50E1 do not support this feature. More ...

Wi-Fi Direct is a system to allow your TV to connect directly to other device without requiring a wireless router as a go-between.

Wi-Fi Direct is helpful on a TV because it allows a TV to connect to another device (such as a computer or phone) directly, meaning there is far less setup required - the devices just need to be 'paired' (normally at a press of a button) and the y can transfer data between each other. This is extremely useful for streaming media onto your TV from a computer or phone.

Better Kagoo Score

The Samsung UN50NU6900 has received a Kagoo Score of 89, whereas the LG OLED65C9PUA scored 88, the Sony XBR49X800G scored 85, the TCL 43S405 scored 86 and the VIZIO D50E1 scored 87.

Cheaper by $95

The Samsung UN50NU6900 is $1,508.44 cheaper than the LG OLED65C9PUA, $308.44 cheaper than the Sony XBR49X800G, $148.45 cheaper than the TCL 43S405 and $94.65 cheaper than the VIZIO D50E1.

More Customers Recommend it

93.6% of 2,118 customers recommend the Samsung UN50NU6900, but only 92% of 1,101 customers recommend the LG OLED65C9PUA and only 87.3% of 820 customers recommend the TCL 43S405.

The Samsung UN50NU6900 reviewers thought the Samsung UN50NU6900 was more thoughtfully designed. More than 50 people thought that it was really good-looking and several people thought that it was also well designed and smooth.

Easier to Use

On average reviewers thought the Samsung UN50NU6900 was easier to use. More than 30 people thought that it was really easy to setup and to use. Looking through the reviews we also noticed that several people thought that it was really easy to assemble, had outstanding controls and had a good interface.

Better At Producing a High Quality Picture

Comparing the product reviews on average people thought the Samsung UN50NU6900 was better at producing a high quality picture. More than 300 people thought that it had superb picture quality and over 20 people thought that it also had a good 4k picture and had good colour saturation. More than 10 people also thought that it had a brilliant screen and several people thought that it also had a very sharp image, was excellent for playing games on and had good High Dynamic Range (HDR).

Better At Producing High Quality Sound

Our analysis of the Samsung UN50NU6900 reviews indicates that more reviewers thought the Samsung UN50NU6900 was better at producing high quality sound. Over 90 people thought that it had brilliant sound quality.

16 Reasons Against for Choosing the Samsung UN50NU6900

Smaller Display Diagonal

The Samsung UN50NU6900 has a display diagonal of 49.5, but the LG OLED65C9PUA is a 65" TV (15.5" larger), the Sony XBR49X800G is a 48.5" TV (1" smaller), the TCL 43S405 is a 43" TV (6.5" smaller) and the VIZIO D50E1 is a 50" TV (0.5" larger). 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 are viewing from a distance of 6ft (72 inches) you would need a TV display diagonal of 60 inches.

Does Not Feature OLED / QLED Technology

The Samsung UN50NU6900 does not feature OLED / QLED technology (As do the the Sony XBR49X800G, the TCL 43S405 and the VIZIO D50E1), however the LG OLED65C9PUA does. More ...

OLED and QLED TVs use organic material that creates light when electricity is passed through it. This means that they do not require a back light, unlike standard LED TVs.

OLED and QLED TVs have much higher contrast than LED TVs as they have no back light. They also have a fast response rate, rich colours and a wide viewing angle. They are also cheaper to run.

Thicker

The Samsung UN50NU6900 has a thickness of 50.8. That's 3.9mm thicker than the LG OLED65C9PUA (46.9mm), 6.2mm thinner than the Sony XBR49X800G (57mm), 22.8mm thinner than the TCL 43S405 (73.6mm) and 25.2mm thinner than the VIZIO D50E1 (76mm). More ...

The thickness of a 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.

67% Lower RMS Rated Power

The Samsung UN50NU6900 is a 20 RMS rated power TV, and so do the Sony XBR49X800G and the VIZIO D50E1. That's 40W lower than the LG OLED65C9PUA (60W). More ...

RMS rated power stands for Root Mean Square rated power and it is typically used to measure the power output of the audio element of the TV.

A higher RMS rated power means that the audio system on the TV is more powerful and will be able to play the audio at higher volumes. A higher RMS power may also result in better quality audio at normal volume levels.

Not 3D

The Samsung UN50NU6900 is not 3D (As do the the LG OLED65C9PUA, the Sony XBR49X800G and the VIZIO D50E1), whereas the TCL 43S405 is. More ...

‘3D’ describes whether the TV can display 3D movies and programmes. Requires compatible 3D glasses to properly function.

3D technology has become increasingly popular as the amount of 3D film and TV content has increased dramatically in recent years. All 3D TVs will also display regular 2D content and most will allow you to switch on and off the 3D effect on 3D content. 3D compatible TVs allow you to watch 3D content. For most TVs you will need to wear special glasses to see the 3D effect.

Fewer Sellers

The Samsung UN50NU6900 is only stocked by 5 stores, but the LG OLED65C9PUA is stocked by 15 retailers and the Sony XBR49X800G is stocked by 9 sellers. More ...

The fewer the number of sellers that stock the product, the lower the competition amongst sellers to keep prices low.
Older by Three Months

The Samsung UN50NU6900 is three months older than the LG OLED65C9PUA.

$29 More Expensive to Run Over Five Years

Over five years the Samsung UN50NU6900 costs $89 to run which is $29 more than the TCL 43S405. Show assumptions.

User Review Rating is Slightly Worse

The average user rating of the Samsung UN50NU6900 is 93%, whereas the average user rating of the LG OLED65C9PUA is 96% (based on 1,091 reviews).

Overall Review Rating is Slightly Worse

The average overall rating of the Samsung UN50NU6900 is 92%, whereas the average overall rating of the LG OLED65C9PUA is 96% (based on 1,095 reviews).

Worse Brand

A Worse Size

On average reviewers thought the Samsung UN50NU6900 was a worse size.

On average reviewers thought the Samsung UN50NU6900 has worse technical features.

28 Reasons For for Choosing the LG OLED65C9PUA

22" Larger Display Diagonal

The LG OLED65C9PUA has a display diagonal of 65, whereas the Samsung UN50NU6900 is only a 49.5" TV (15.5" smaller), the Sony XBR49X800G is only a 48.5" TV (16.5" smaller), the TCL 43S405 is only a 43" TV (22" smaller) and the VIZIO D50E1 is only a 50" TV (15" smaller). 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 are viewing from a distance of 6ft (72 inches) you would need a TV display diagonal of 60 inches.

OLED / QLED Technology

The LG OLED65C9PUA features OLED / QLED technology, however the Samsung UN50NU6900, the Sony XBR49X800G, the TCL 43S405 and the VIZIO D50E1 do not feature this benefit. More ...

OLED and QLED TVs use organic material that creates light when electricity is passed through it. This means that they do not require a back light, unlike standard LED TVs.

OLED and QLED TVs have much higher contrast than LED TVs as they have no back light. They also have a fast response rate, rich colours and a wide viewing angle. They are also cheaper to run.

Thinner

LG OLED65C9PUA is 46.9 thick. That's 3.9mm thinner than the Samsung UN50NU6900 (50.8mm), 10.1mm thinner than the Sony XBR49X800G (57mm), 26.7mm thinner than the TCL 43S405 (73.6mm) and 29.1mm thinner than the VIZIO D50E1 (76mm). More ...

The thickness of a 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.

Built-in Subwoofer

The LG OLED65C9PUA has a built-in subwoofer, however the Samsung UN50NU6900, the Sony XBR49X800G, the TCL 43S405 and the VIZIO D50E1 do not have this feature. More ...

A subwoofer is a specialised bass speaker for your TV, designed to provide punchy and powerful low notes for music and movies. Alternatively, an underground dog.

A built-in subwoofer will give your TV's sound system a serious boost on the low end bass notes. This will be best experienced in the bangs, thumps and explosions of movies, or in bass-heavy music.

40% Higher RMS Rated Power

The LG OLED65C9PUA is a 60 RMS rated power TV. That's 40W higher than the Samsung UN50NU6900, the Sony XBR49X800G and the VIZIO D50E1 (20W). More ...

RMS rated power stands for Root Mean Square rated power and it is typically used to measure the power output of the audio element of the TV.

A higher RMS rated power means that the audio system on the TV is more powerful and will be able to play the audio at higher volumes. A higher RMS power may also result in better quality audio at normal volume levels.

Timeshift

The LG OLED65C9PUA supports timeshift, but the Samsung UN50NU6900, the Sony XBR49X800G, the TCL 43S405 and the VIZIO D50E1 do not. More ...

'Timeshifting' on a TV is the ability to record movies and programs to be viewed or listened to after the live broadcast.

TVs with timeshifting abilities mean that you don't have to watch programs when they are first broadcast - you can record them and watch them at your leisure.

Screen Mirroring

The LG OLED65C9PUA supports screen mirroring, and so do the Samsung UN50NU6900 and the Sony XBR49X800G, but the TCL 43S405 and the VIZIO D50E1 do not. More ...

Screen Mirroring on a TV is a system that allows you to view the screen from a computer or mobile phone on your TV.

Screen mirroring on a TV is helpful because it allows you to easily display media and info running on a phone or laptop to a big screen for easy viewing with a minimum of effort.

Parental Controls

The LG OLED65C9PUA supports parental controls, but the Samsung UN50NU6900, the Sony XBR49X800G, the TCL 43S405 and the VIZIO D50E1 do not support this feature. More ...

Parental controls on a TV allow users to limit the films and programs that can be viewed on the TV, preventing adults-only content from being viewed by children.

Parental controls are a good way of stopping children accidentally (or totally not-accidentally) watching violent or sexual programs when parents aren't around to stop them.

Smartphone Remote App

The LG OLED65C9PUA has a smartphone remote app (as does the Samsung UN50NU6900), however the Sony XBR49X800G, the TCL 43S405 and the VIZIO D50E1 do not have this feature. More ...

'Smartphone Remote' states whether the TV has the capability to be controlled using your smartphone, acting as a surrogate remote. This will usually require the installation of an app onto your phone.

Using your smartphone as a remote is helpful because it means that you don't have to use the official remote to control the TV - your smartphone will work instead. Helpful since you will quite often already have it in your pocket!

Game Mode

The LG OLED65C9PUA has a game mode (as does the Samsung UN50NU6900), but the Sony XBR49X800G, the TCL 43S405 and the VIZIO D50E1 do not have this feature. More ...

'Game Mode' on a TV is a specialist mode that scales down the graphical fidelity of the video in order to free up processing power for response time.

In effect this trades slightly worse graphical capabilities for lessened input lag, meaning a smoother, more responsive experience when gaming.

High Dynamic Range Imaging (HDRI)

The LG OLED65C9PUA features High Dynamic Range Imaging (HDRI) (as do the Samsung UN50NU6900 and the Sony XBR49X800G), however the TCL 43S405 and the VIZIO D50E1 do not feature this benefit. More ...

High Dynamic Range Imaging (HDRI) on a TV is a system that allows preserves details in the darkest and brightest areas of the screen that are lost using standard display methods.

HDRI on a TV allows for better contrast levels, greater brightness levels and a wider colour palette on films and TV programs. This translates into more natural, true-to-life colours that are closer to how we see them in real life.

Local Dimming

The LG OLED65C9PUA features local dimming, and so does the Sony XBR49X800G, but the Samsung UN50NU6900, the TCL 43S405 and the VIZIO D50E1 do not. More ...

'Local Dimming' on a TV is a function that dims certain sections of the backlight to control the level of light/color intensity in a given part of the screen.

Local dimming can be used to make blacks on the screen appear darker and richer by removing the backlight behind them.

USB Recording

The LG OLED65C9PUA features USB recording, however the Samsung UN50NU6900, the Sony XBR49X800G, the TCL 43S405 and the VIZIO D50E1 do not. More ...

A USB recording function on a TV allows you to record live TV onto a USB device.

Recording live TV onto a USB device is a good way to save films and TV programs for later viewing.

Noise Reduction

The LG OLED65C9PUA supports noise reduction, however the Samsung UN50NU6900, the Sony XBR49X800G, the TCL 43S405 and the VIZIO D50E1 do not support this feature. More ...

Noise reduction helps reduce intrusive audio and visual noise for a clearer and better viewing experience.

Wi-Fi

The LG OLED65C9PUA supports Wi-Fi, and so do the Samsung UN50NU6900, the Sony XBR49X800G and the VIZIO D50E1, whereas the TCL 43S405 does not. More ...

A Wifi (wireless LAN connection) on your TV means that you can connect your TV directly to your WiFi network.

A wifi connection means that connecting your TV to the net will be easier and can be done without cables.

Bluetooth

The LG OLED65C9PUA supports Bluetooth, and so does the Sony XBR49X800G, but the Samsung UN50NU6900, the TCL 43S405 and the VIZIO D50E1 do not. More ...

A Bluetooth connection on your TV means it can send and receive data from Bluetooth-enabled devices, such as headphones, mobile phones or remotes.

A Bluetooth connection on your phone allows you to use many newer wireless devices with your TV, such as wireless headphones and controlling your TV using your phone.

Ethernet Port

The LG OLED65C9PUA has an ethernet port (as do the Samsung UN50NU6900, the Sony XBR49X800G and the VIZIO D50E1), however the TCL 43S405 does not have this feature. More ...

An ethernet port lets you connect the TV directly to your router with an ethernet cable.

An ethernet connection is more reliable than wifi and is useful if you do not have a wiki network or the wifi signal is weak. Depending on the speed of your wifi network and ethernet connection may be faster than wifi which means less buffering when streaming content to the TV.

Miracast

The LG OLED65C9PUA supports Miracast, and so does the Sony XBR49X800G, but the Samsung UN50NU6900, the TCL 43S405 and the VIZIO D50E1 do not. More ...

Miracast is a peer-to-peer wireless screencasting standard formed via Wi-Fi Direct connections in a manner similar to Bluetooth.

TVs with Miracast can use it to stream media from computers and mobile phones at very high quality without the need to attach cables first, making the whole process far easier.

Picture-in-Picture

The LG OLED65C9PUA supports Picture-in-Picture, however the Samsung UN50NU6900, the Sony XBR49X800G, the TCL 43S405 and the VIZIO D50E1 do not support this feature. More ...

Picture-in-Picture is a special mode for a TV that allows two programs to be shown at the same time, one in a smaller screen overlaid on top of the first.

Picture-in-Picture on a TV is very helpful for browsing the net or taking Skype calls while still watching a movie or TV programme on the main screen.

Voice Control

The LG OLED65C9PUA features voice control, whereas the Samsung UN50NU6900, the Sony XBR49X800G, the TCL 43S405 and the VIZIO D50E1 do not feature this benefit. More ...

Voice Control on a TV is a system that allows users to control various functions of their TV (volume, channels, etc) purely with voice commands, rather than having to use the remote.

Voice controls mean that you can control the TV from your couch without having to find a remote or move to manually change the channel or adjust the settings, leading to a more streamlined experience.

Desktop Stand Included

The LG OLED65C9PUA has a desktop stand included, however the Samsung UN50NU6900, the Sony XBR49X800G, the TCL 43S405 and the VIZIO D50E1 do not have this feature. More ...

Whether the TV has a desktop stand included with the purchase.

A desktop stand allows you to mount the TV on a desk or table for easy viewing. Without one, you'll have to either mount the TV on a wall or buy a stand at additional expense.

More Shops Are Selling it

A greater number of sellers increases the chances of the product remaining in stock and also increases the price competition amongst retailers for this TV.

‘3D’ describes whether the TV can display 3D movies and programmes. Requires compatible 3D glasses to properly function.

3D technology has become increasingly popular as the amount of 3D film and TV content has increased dramatically in recent years. All 3D TVs will also display regular 2D content and most will allow you to switch on and off the 3D effect on 3D content. 3D compatible TVs allow you to watch 3D content.

3 Reasons For for Choosing the VIZIO D50E1

Wi-Fi

The VIZIO D50E1 supports Wi-Fi (as do the LG OLED65C9PUA, the Samsung UN50NU6900 and the Sony XBR49X800G), whereas the TCL 43S405 does not support this feature. More ...

A Wifi (wireless LAN connection) on your TV means that you can connect your TV directly to your WiFi network.

A wifi connection means that connecting your TV to the net will be easier and can be done without cables.

Ethernet Port

The VIZIO D50E1 has an ethernet port, and so do the LG OLED65C9PUA, the Samsung UN50NU6900 and the Sony XBR49X800G, however the TCL 43S405 does not. More ...

An ethernet port lets you connect the TV directly to your router with an ethernet cable.

An ethernet connection is more reliable than wifi and is useful if you do not have a wiki network or the wifi signal is weak. Depending on the speed of your wifi network and ethernet connection may be faster than wifi which means less buffering when streaming content to the TV.

Has a Better Price

On average reviewers thought the VIZIO D50E1 has a better price.

14 Reasons Against for Choosing the VIZIO D50E1

15" Smaller Display Diagonal

The VIZIO D50E1 is a 50 TV. That's 15" smaller than the LG OLED65C9PUA (65"), 0.5" larger than the Samsung UN50NU6900 (49.5"), 1.5" larger than the Sony XBR49X800G (48.5") and 7" larger than the TCL 43S405 (43"). 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 are viewing from a distance of 6ft (72 inches) you would need a TV display diagonal of 60 inches.

Does Not Feature OLED / QLED Technology

The VIZIO D50E1 does not feature OLED / QLED technology (As do the the Samsung UN50NU6900, the Sony XBR49X800G and the TCL 43S405), but the LG OLED65C9PUA features this benefit. More ...

OLED and QLED TVs use organic material that creates light when electricity is passed through it. This means that they do not require a back light, unlike standard LED TVs.

OLED and QLED TVs have much higher contrast than LED TVs as they have no back light. They also have a fast response rate, rich colours and a wide viewing angle. They are also cheaper to run.

A Lot Thicker

VIZIO D50E1 is 76 thick, but the LG OLED65C9PUA is a 46.9mm thick TV (29.1mm thinner), the Samsung UN50NU6900 is a 50.8mm thick TV (25.2mm thinner), the Sony XBR49X800G is a 57mm thick TV (19mm thinner) and the TCL 43S405 is a 73.6mm thick TV (2.4mm thinner). More ...

The thickness of a 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.

40W Lower RMS Rated Power

The VIZIO D50E1 has an RMS rated power of 20 (as do the Samsung UN50NU6900 and the Sony XBR49X800G), but the LG OLED65C9PUA is a 60W RMS rated power TV (40W higher). More ...

RMS rated power stands for Root Mean Square rated power and it is typically used to measure the power output of the audio element of the TV.

A higher RMS rated power means that the audio system on the TV is more powerful and will be able to play the audio at higher volumes. A higher RMS power may also result in better quality audio at normal volume levels.

Not 3D

The VIZIO D50E1 is not 3D (As do the the LG OLED65C9PUA, the Samsung UN50NU6900 and the Sony XBR49X800G), however the TCL 43S405 is. More ...

For most TVs you will need to wear special glasses to see the 3D effect.

Worse Kagoo Score

The VIZIO D50E1 has received a Kagoo Score of 87, however the LG OLED65C9PUA scored 88 and the Samsung UN50NU6900 scored 89.

$95 More Expensive

The VIZIO D50E1 is more expensive than the Samsung UN50NU6900 by $95.

Less Retailers

Only 3 retailers sells the VIZIO D50E1, whereas 15 stores sell the LG OLED65C9PUA, 5 sellers sell the Samsung UN50NU6900 and 9 shops sell the Sony XBR49X800G. More ...

Smaller numbers of retailers reduces the price competition amongst retailers for this TV and also reduces the chances of the product remaining in stock.
Over Two Years Older

The VIZIO D50E1 is older than the LG OLED65C9PUA by two years, older than the Samsung UN50NU6900 by 23 months, older than the Sony XBR49X800G by three months and older than the TCL 43S405 by 10 months.

66% Higher Running Costs Over Five Years

Over five years the VIZIO D50E1 costs $100 to run which is $11 more than the Samsung UN50NU6900, $7 more than the Sony XBR49X800G and $40 more than the TCL 43S405. Show assumptions.

Lower User Review Score

The VIZIO D50E1's average user rating is 91%, however the LG OLED65C9PUA's is 96% (based on 1,091 reviews) and the Samsung UN50NU6900's is 93% (based on 2,118 reviews).

Lower Overall Review Score

The VIZIO D50E1's average overall rating is 91%, however the LG OLED65C9PUA's is 96% (based on 1,095 reviews) and the Samsung UN50NU6900's is 92% (based on 2,118 reviews).

Worse Brand

VIZIO TVs have an average rating of only 88.1%, whereas LG has an average rating of 95% and Samsung has an average rating of 94%.

Produces Inferior Image Quality

The VIZIO D50E1 reviewers thought the VIZIO D50E1 produces inferior image quality.

The VIZIO D50E1 is 1,127mm wide, 76mm tall, 650mm thick and weighs 12.1kg.

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 are viewing from a distance of 6ft (72 inches) you would need a TV display diagonal of 60 inches.

Does Not Feature OLED / QLED Technology

The TCL 43S405 does not feature OLED / QLED technology (As do the the Samsung UN50NU6900, the Sony XBR49X800G and the VIZIO D50E1), but the LG OLED65C9PUA does. More ...

OLED and QLED TVs use organic material that creates light when electricity is passed through it. This means that they do not require a back light, unlike standard LED TVs.

OLED and QLED TVs have much higher contrast than LED TVs as they have no back light. They also have a fast response rate, rich colours and a wide viewing angle. They are also cheaper to run.

27% Thicker

TCL 43S405 is 73.6 thick. That's 26.7mm thicker than the LG OLED65C9PUA (46.9mm), 22.8mm thicker than the Samsung UN50NU6900 (50.8mm), 16.6mm thicker than the Sony XBR49X800G (57mm) and 2.4mm thinner than the VIZIO D50E1 (76mm). More ...

The thickness of a 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.

Worse Kagoo Score

7 Reasons For for Choosing the Sony XBR49X800G

Screen Mirroring

The Sony XBR49X800G supports screen mirroring (as do the LG OLED65C9PUA and the Samsung UN50NU6900), but the TCL 43S405 and the VIZIO D50E1 do not support this feature. More ...

Screen Mirroring on a TV is a system that allows you to view the screen from a computer or mobile phone on your TV.

Screen mirroring on a TV is helpful because it allows you to easily display media and info running on a phone or laptop to a big screen for easy viewing with a minimum of effort.

High Dynamic Range Imaging (HDRI)

The Sony XBR49X800G features High Dynamic Range Imaging (HDRI), and so do the LG OLED65C9PUA and the Samsung UN50NU6900, however the TCL 43S405 and the VIZIO D50E1 do not. More ...

High Dynamic Range Imaging (HDRI) on a TV is a system that allows preserves details in the darkest and brightest areas of the screen that are lost using standard display methods.

HDRI on a TV allows for better contrast levels, greater brightness levels and a wider colour palette on films and TV programs. This translates into more natural, true-to-life colours that are closer to how we see them in real life.

Local Dimming

The Sony XBR49X800G features local dimming (as does the LG OLED65C9PUA), but the Samsung UN50NU6900, the TCL 43S405 and the VIZIO D50E1 do not feature this benefit. More ...

'Local Dimming' on a TV is a function that dims certain sections of the backlight to control the level of light/color intensity in a given part of the screen.

Local dimming can be used to make blacks on the screen appear darker and richer by removing the backlight behind them.

Wi-Fi

The Sony XBR49X800G supports Wi-Fi (as do the LG OLED65C9PUA, the Samsung UN50NU6900 and the VIZIO D50E1), whereas the TCL 43S405 does not support this feature. More ...

A Wifi (wireless LAN connection) on your TV means that you can connect your TV directly to your WiFi network.

A wifi connection means that connecting your TV to the net will be easier and can be done without cables.

Bluetooth

The Sony XBR49X800G supports Bluetooth (as does the LG OLED65C9PUA), but the Samsung UN50NU6900, the TCL 43S405 and the VIZIO D50E1 do not support this feature. More ...

A Bluetooth connection on your TV means it can send and receive data from Bluetooth-enabled devices, such as headphones, mobile phones or remotes.

A Bluetooth connection on your phone allows you to use many newer wireless devices with your TV, such as wireless headphones and controlling your TV using your phone.

Ethernet Port

The Sony XBR49X800G has an ethernet port, and so do the LG OLED65C9PUA, the Samsung UN50NU6900 and the VIZIO D50E1, however the TCL 43S405 does not. More ...

An ethernet port lets you connect the TV directly to your router with an ethernet cable.

An ethernet connection is more reliable than wifi and is useful if you do not have a wiki network or the wifi signal is weak. Depending on the speed of your wifi network and ethernet connection may be faster than wifi which means less buffering when streaming content to the TV.

Miracast

The Sony XBR49X800G supports Miracast (as does the LG OLED65C9PUA), but the Samsung UN50NU6900, the TCL 43S405 and the VIZIO D50E1 do not support this feature. More ...

Miracast is a peer-to-peer wireless screencasting standard formed via Wi-Fi Direct connections in a manner similar to Bluetooth.

TVs with Miracast can use it to stream media from computers and mobile phones at very high quality without the need to attach cables first, making the whole process far easier.

11 Reasons Against for Choosing the Sony XBR49X800G

Smaller Display Diagonal

The Sony XBR49X800G is a 48.5 TV. That's 16.5" smaller than the LG OLED65C9PUA (65"), 1" smaller than the Samsung UN50NU6900 (49.5"), 5.5" larger than the TCL 43S405 (43") and 1.5" smaller than the VIZIO D50E1 (50"). 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 are viewing from a distance of 6ft (72 inches) you would need a TV display diagonal of 60 inches.

Does Not Feature OLED / QLED Technology

The Sony XBR49X800G does not feature OLED / QLED technology (As do the the Samsung UN50NU6900, the TCL 43S405 and the VIZIO D50E1), but the LG OLED65C9PUA features this benefit. More ...

OLED and QLED TVs use organic material that creates light when electricity is passed through it. This means that they do not require a back light, unlike standard LED TVs.

OLED and QLED TVs have much higher contrast than LED TVs as they have no back light. They also have a fast response rate, rich colours and a wide viewing angle. They are also cheaper to run.

Thicker

Sony XBR49X800G is 57 thick, but the LG OLED65C9PUA is a 46.9mm thick TV (10.1mm thinner), the Samsung UN50NU6900 is a 50.8mm thick TV (6.2mm thinner), the TCL 43S405 is a 73.6mm thick TV (16.6mm thicker) and the VIZIO D50E1 is a 76mm thick TV (19mm thicker). More ...

The thickness of a 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.

40W Lower RMS Rated Power

The Sony XBR49X800G has an RMS rated power of 20 (as do the Samsung UN50NU6900 and the VIZIO D50E1), but the LG OLED65C9PUA is a 60W RMS rated power TV (40W higher). More ...

RMS rated power stands for Root Mean Square rated power and it is typically used to measure the power output of the audio element of the TV.

A higher RMS rated power means that the audio system on the TV is more powerful and will be able to play the audio at higher volumes. A higher RMS power may also result in better quality audio at normal volume levels.

Not 3D

The Sony XBR49X800G is not 3D (As do the the LG OLED65C9PUA, the Samsung UN50NU6900 and the VIZIO D50E1), however the TCL 43S405 is. More ...

‘3D’ describes whether the TV can display 3D movies and programmes. Requires compatible 3D glasses to properly function.

3D technology has become increasingly popular as the amount of 3D film and TV content has increased dramatically in recent years. All 3D TVs will also display regular 2D content and most will allow you to switch on and off the 3D effect on 3D content. 3D compatible TVs allow you to watch 3D content. For most TVs you will need to wear special glasses to see the 3D effect.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Sony XBR49X800G has received a Kagoo Score of 85, however the LG OLED65C9PUA scored 88, the Samsung UN50NU6900 scored 89, the TCL 43S405 scored 86 and the VIZIO D50E1 scored 87.

$308 More Expensive

The Sony XBR49X800G is more expensive than the Samsung UN50NU6900 by $308, more expensive than the TCL 43S405 by $160 and more expensive than the VIZIO D50E1 by $214.

Less Retailers

Only 9 retailers sells the Sony XBR49X800G, whereas 15 shops sell the LG OLED65C9PUA. More ...

Smaller numbers of retailers reduces the price competition amongst retailers for this TV and also reduces the chances of the product remaining in stock.
Over One Year Older

The Sony XBR49X800G is older than the LG OLED65C9PUA by 23 months, older than the Samsung UN50NU6900 by 20 months and older than the TCL 43S405 by seven months.

55% Higher Running Costs Over Five Years

Over five years the Sony XBR49X800G costs $93 to run which is $4 more than the Samsung UN50NU6900 and $33 more than the TCL 43S405. Show assumptions.

Worse Brand

Sony TVs have an average rating of only 85.7%, whereas LG has an average rating of 95%, Samsung has an average rating of 94% and VIZIO has an average rating of 88.1%.

The Sony XBR49X800G is 1,096mm wide, 640mm tall, 57mm thick and weighs 12.2kg.
