Our review analysis indicates that Samsung UN50NU6900 has terrific user reviews with 94% of buyers recommending this TV to others.

16 Reasons For for Choosing the Samsung UN50NU6900

Screen Mirroring

The Samsung UN50NU6900 supports screen mirroring (as does the Sony XBR49X800G), but the LG OLED55C9AUA, the Samsung Series 8 UN65RU8000 and the TCL 43S405 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.

Smartphone Remote App

The Samsung UN50NU6900 has a smartphone remote app, and so do the LG OLED55C9AUA and the Samsung Series 8 UN65RU8000, however the Sony XBR49X800G and the TCL 43S405 do not. 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, and so do the LG OLED55C9AUA and the Samsung Series 8 UN65RU8000, but the Sony XBR49X800G and the TCL 43S405 do not. 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), and so do the LG OLED55C9AUA and the Sony XBR49X800G, however the Samsung Series 8 UN65RU8000 and the TCL 43S405 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.

Digital Clean View

The Samsung UN50NU6900 supports Digital Clean View (as does the Samsung Series 8 UN65RU8000), however the LG OLED55C9AUA, the Sony XBR49X800G and the TCL 43S405 do not support this feature. 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 (as do the LG OLED55C9AUA, the Samsung Series 8 UN65RU8000 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 Samsung UN50NU6900 has an ethernet port, and so do the LG OLED55C9AUA, the Samsung Series 8 UN65RU8000 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.

Wi-Fi Direct

The Samsung UN50NU6900 supports Wi-Fi Direct, and so does the Samsung Series 8 UN65RU8000, but the LG OLED55C9AUA, the Sony XBR49X800G and the TCL 43S405 do not. 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 90, however the LG OLED55C9AUA scored 84, the Samsung Series 8 UN65RU8000 scored 89, the Sony XBR49X800G scored 84 and the TCL 43S405 scored 86.

$112 Cheaper

The Samsung UN50NU6900 costs $572 less than the LG OLED55C9AUA, costs $471.99 less than the Samsung Series 8 UN65RU8000, costs $261.99 less than the Sony XBR49X800G and costs $112 less than the TCL 43S405.

More Customers Recommend It

93% of 2,120 customers recommend the Samsung UN50NU6900, whereas only 91.9% of 1,102 customers recommend the LG OLED55C9AUA, only 60% of 10 customers recommend the Samsung Series 8 UN65RU8000 and only 87% of 823 customers recommend the TCL 43S405.

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.

15 Reasons Against for Choosing the Samsung UN50NU6900

15.5" Smaller Display Diagonal

The Samsung UN50NU6900 is a 49.5 TV. That's 5.5" smaller than the LG OLED55C9AUA (55"), 15.5" smaller than the Samsung Series 8 UN65RU8000 (65"), 1" larger than the Sony XBR49X800G (48.5") and 6.5" 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.

Marginally Thicker

Samsung UN50NU6900 is 50.8 thick, but the LG OLED55C9AUA is a 46.9mm thick TV (3.9mm thinner), the Samsung Series 8 UN65RU8000 is a 58.4mm thick TV (7.6mm thicker), the Sony XBR49X800G is a 57mm thick TV (6.2mm thicker) and the TCL 43S405 is a 73.6mm thick TV (22.8mm 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.

20W Lower RMS Rated Power

The Samsung UN50NU6900 has an RMS rated power of 20 (as do the Samsung Series 8 UN65RU8000 and the Sony XBR49X800G), but the LG OLED55C9AUA is a 40W RMS rated power TV (20W 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 Samsung UN50NU6900 is not 3D (As do the the LG OLED55C9AUA and the Sony XBR49X800G), however the Samsung Series 8 UN65RU8000 and the TCL 43S405 are. 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.

Does Not Feature OLED Technology

The Samsung UN50NU6900 does not feature OLED technology (As do the the Samsung Series 8 UN65RU8000, the Sony XBR49X800G and the TCL 43S405), but the LG OLED55C9AUA features this benefit. More ...

OLED 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 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.

Less Retailers

Only 4 sellers sells the Samsung UN50NU6900, whereas 7 stores sell the Samsung Series 8 UN65RU8000. 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.
Four Months Older

The Samsung UN50NU6900 is older than the LG OLED55C9AUA by four months and older than the Samsung Series 8 UN65RU8000 by three months.

49% Higher Running Costs Over Five Years

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

Lower User Review Score

The Samsung UN50NU6900's average user rating is 92%, however the LG OLED55C9AUA's is 96% (based on 1,091 reviews) and the Samsung Series 8 UN65RU8000's is 100% (based on 6 reviews).

A Little Lower Overall Review Score

The Samsung UN50NU6900's average overall rating is 92%, however the LG OLED55C9AUA's is 96% (based on 1,095 reviews) and the Samsung Series 8 UN65RU8000's is 93% (based on 7 reviews).

Worse Brand

Samsung TVs have an average rating of only 94.7%, whereas LG has an average rating of 95%.

Our analysis of the Samsung UN50NU6900 reviews indicates that more reviewers thought the Samsung UN50NU6900 was worse in terms of size.

12 Reasons For for Choosing the Samsung Series 8 UN65RU8000

A Lot Larger Display Diagonal

The Samsung Series 8 UN65RU8000 has a display diagonal of 65, whereas the LG OLED55C9AUA is only a 55" TV (10" smaller), the Samsung UN50NU6900 is only a 49.5" TV (15.5" smaller), the Sony XBR49X800G is only a 48.5" TV (16.5" smaller) and the TCL 43S405 is only a 43" TV (22" smaller). More ...

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 Series 8 UN65RU8000 supports Wi-Fi Direct (as does the Samsung UN50NU6900), but the LG OLED55C9AUA, the Sony XBR49X800G and the TCL 43S405 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.

Voice Control

The Samsung Series 8 UN65RU8000 features voice control (as does the LG OLED55C9AUA), whereas the Samsung UN50NU6900, the Sony XBR49X800G and the TCL 43S405 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 Samsung Series 8 UN65RU8000 has a desktop stand included (as does the LG OLED55C9AUA), however the Samsung UN50NU6900, the Sony XBR49X800G and the TCL 43S405 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 shops increases the chances of the product remaining in stock and also increases the price competition amongst retailers for this TV.

Marginally Better User Reviews

The Samsung Series 8 UN65RU8000 has an average user review score of 100% based on 6 reviews, however the LG OLED55C9AUA has an average rating of 96% (based on 1,091 reviews), the Samsung UN50NU6900 has an average rating of 92% (based on 2,120 reviews) and the TCL 43S405 has an average rating of 91% (based on 812 reviews).

8 Reasons Against for Choosing the Samsung Series 8 UN65RU8000

Thicker

Samsung Series 8 UN65RU8000 is 58.4 thick. That's 11.5mm thicker than the LG OLED55C9AUA (46.9mm), 7.6mm thicker than the Samsung UN50NU6900 (50.8mm), 1.4mm thicker than the Sony XBR49X800G (57mm) and 15.2mm thinner than the TCL 43S405 (73.6mm). 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.

Lower RMS Rated Power

The Samsung Series 8 UN65RU8000 is a 20 RMS rated power TV, and so do the Samsung UN50NU6900 and the Sony XBR49X800G. That's 20W lower than the LG OLED55C9AUA (40W). 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.

Does Not Feature OLED Technology

The Samsung Series 8 UN65RU8000 does not feature OLED technology (As do the the Samsung UN50NU6900, the Sony XBR49X800G and the TCL 43S405), but the LG OLED55C9AUA does. More ...

OLED 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 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.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Samsung Series 8 UN65RU8000 has received a Kagoo Score of 89, however the Samsung UN50NU6900 scored 90.

More Expensive by $472

The Samsung Series 8 UN65RU8000 is $472 more expensive than the Samsung UN50NU6900, $210 more expensive than the Sony XBR49X800G and $360 more expensive than the TCL 43S405.

Older by One Month

The Samsung Series 8 UN65RU8000 is one month older than the LG OLED55C9AUA.

Higher Running Costs Over Five Years by $56

The running costs of the Samsung Series 8 UN65RU8000 are $116 which is $1 more than the LG OLED55C9AUA, $27 more than the Samsung UN50NU6900, $23 more than the Sony XBR49X800G and $56 more than the TCL 43S405 over five years. Show assumptions.

Worse Brand

Samsung TVs have an average rating of only 94.7%, whereas LG has an average rating of 95%.

The cheapest price that we could find for the Series 8 UN65RU8000 in the US is $799.99 and in total we found 7 prices for it.

7 Reasons For for Choosing the Sony XBR49X800G

Screen Mirroring

The Sony XBR49X800G supports screen mirroring, and so does the Samsung UN50NU6900, whereas the LG OLED55C9AUA, the Samsung Series 8 UN65RU8000 and the TCL 43S405 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.

High Dynamic Range Imaging (HDRI)

The Sony XBR49X800G features High Dynamic Range Imaging (HDRI) (as do the LG OLED55C9AUA and the Samsung UN50NU6900), but the Samsung Series 8 UN65RU8000 and the TCL 43S405 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 Sony XBR49X800G features local dimming, and so does the LG OLED55C9AUA, whereas the Samsung Series 8 UN65RU8000, the Samsung UN50NU6900 and the TCL 43S405 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.

Wi-Fi

The Sony XBR49X800G supports Wi-Fi, and so do the LG OLED55C9AUA, the Samsung Series 8 UN65RU8000 and the Samsung UN50NU6900, however 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 Sony XBR49X800G supports Bluetooth, and so do the LG OLED55C9AUA and the Samsung Series 8 UN65RU8000, whereas the Samsung UN50NU6900 and the TCL 43S405 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 Sony XBR49X800G has an ethernet port (as do the LG OLED55C9AUA, the Samsung Series 8 UN65RU8000 and the Samsung UN50NU6900), but 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 Sony XBR49X800G supports Miracast, and so does the LG OLED55C9AUA, whereas the Samsung Series 8 UN65RU8000, the Samsung UN50NU6900 and the TCL 43S405 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.

11 Reasons Against for Choosing the Sony XBR49X800G

A Lot Smaller Display Diagonal

The Sony XBR49X800G has a display diagonal of 48.5, however the LG OLED55C9AUA is a 55" TV (6.5" larger), the Samsung Series 8 UN65RU8000 is a 65" TV (16.5" larger), the Samsung UN50NU6900 is a 49.5" TV (1" larger) and the TCL 43S405 is a 43" TV (5.5" 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.

10.1mm Thicker

The Sony XBR49X800G is a 57 thick TV. That's 10.1mm thicker than the LG OLED55C9AUA (46.9mm), 1.4mm thinner than the Samsung Series 8 UN65RU8000 (58.4mm), 6.2mm thicker than the Samsung UN50NU6900 (50.8mm) and 16.6mm thinner than the TCL 43S405 (73.6mm). 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.

Lower RMS Rated Power

The Sony XBR49X800G is a 20 RMS rated power TV, and so do the Samsung Series 8 UN65RU8000 and the Samsung UN50NU6900. That's 20W lower than the LG OLED55C9AUA (40W). 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 OLED55C9AUA and the Samsung UN50NU6900), but the Samsung Series 8 UN65RU8000 and the TCL 43S405 are. 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.

Does Not Feature OLED Technology

The Sony XBR49X800G does not feature OLED technology (As do the the Samsung Series 8 UN65RU8000, the Samsung UN50NU6900 and the TCL 43S405), whereas the LG OLED55C9AUA does. More ...

OLED 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.

The Sony XBR49X800G has received a Kagoo Score of 84, but the Samsung Series 8 UN65RU8000 scored 89, the Samsung UN50NU6900 scored 90 and the TCL 43S405 scored 86.

More Expensive by $262

The Sony XBR49X800G is $262 more expensive than the Samsung UN50NU6900 and $150 more expensive than the TCL 43S405.

Not As Many Stockists

The Sony XBR49X800G is only stocked by 4 retailers, however the Samsung Series 8 UN65RU8000 is stocked by 7 stores. More ...

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

The Sony XBR49X800G is 23 months older than the LG OLED55C9AUA, 22 months older than the Samsung Series 8 UN65RU8000, 19 months older than the Samsung UN50NU6900 and six months older than the TCL 43S405.

26 Reasons For for Choosing the LG OLED55C9AUA

26.7mm Thinner

The LG OLED55C9AUA has a thickness of 46.9, however the Samsung Series 8 UN65RU8000 is a 58.4mm thick TV (11.5mm thicker), the Samsung UN50NU6900 is a 50.8mm thick TV (3.9mm thicker), the Sony XBR49X800G is a 57mm thick TV (10.1mm thicker) and the TCL 43S405 is a 73.6mm thick TV (26.7mm 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.

Built-in Subwoofer

The LG OLED55C9AUA has a built-in subwoofer, whereas the Samsung Series 8 UN65RU8000, the Samsung UN50NU6900, the Sony XBR49X800G and the TCL 43S405 do not. 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.

A Lot Higher RMS Rated Power

The LG OLED55C9AUA has an RMS rated power of 40, however the Samsung Series 8 UN65RU8000, the Samsung UN50NU6900 and the Sony XBR49X800G are all only 20W RMS rated power TVs (20W lower). 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 OLED55C9AUA supports timeshift, however the Samsung Series 8 UN65RU8000, the Samsung UN50NU6900, the Sony XBR49X800G and the TCL 43S405 do not support this feature. 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.

Parental Controls

The LG OLED55C9AUA supports parental controls, however the Samsung Series 8 UN65RU8000, the Samsung UN50NU6900, the Sony XBR49X800G and the TCL 43S405 do not. 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 OLED55C9AUA has a smartphone remote app, and so do the Samsung Series 8 UN65RU8000 and the Samsung UN50NU6900, whereas the Sony XBR49X800G and the TCL 43S405 do not. 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 OLED55C9AUA has a game mode, and so do the Samsung Series 8 UN65RU8000 and the Samsung UN50NU6900, however the Sony XBR49X800G and the TCL 43S405 do not. 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 OLED55C9AUA features High Dynamic Range Imaging (HDRI), and so do the Samsung UN50NU6900 and the Sony XBR49X800G, whereas the Samsung Series 8 UN65RU8000 and the TCL 43S405 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 LG OLED55C9AUA features local dimming (as does the Sony XBR49X800G), however the Samsung Series 8 UN65RU8000, the Samsung UN50NU6900 and the TCL 43S405 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.

USB Recording

The LG OLED55C9AUA features USB recording, whereas the Samsung Series 8 UN65RU8000, the Samsung UN50NU6900, the Sony XBR49X800G and the TCL 43S405 do not feature this benefit. 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 OLED55C9AUA supports noise reduction, whereas the Samsung Series 8 UN65RU8000, the Samsung UN50NU6900, the Sony XBR49X800G and the TCL 43S405 do not. More ...

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

Wi-Fi

The LG OLED55C9AUA supports Wi-Fi (as do the Samsung Series 8 UN65RU8000, the Samsung UN50NU6900 and the Sony XBR49X800G), but 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 LG OLED55C9AUA supports Bluetooth (as do the Samsung Series 8 UN65RU8000 and the Sony XBR49X800G), however the Samsung UN50NU6900 and the TCL 43S405 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 LG OLED55C9AUA has an ethernet port, and so do the Samsung Series 8 UN65RU8000, the Samsung UN50NU6900 and the Sony XBR49X800G, whereas 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 LG OLED55C9AUA supports Miracast (as does the Sony XBR49X800G), however the Samsung Series 8 UN65RU8000, the Samsung UN50NU6900 and the TCL 43S405 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.

Picture-in-Picture

The LG OLED55C9AUA supports Picture-in-Picture, whereas the Samsung Series 8 UN65RU8000, the Samsung UN50NU6900, the Sony XBR49X800G and the TCL 43S405 do not. 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 OLED55C9AUA features voice control, and so does the Samsung Series 8 UN65RU8000, but the Samsung UN50NU6900, the Sony XBR49X800G and the TCL 43S405 do not. 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 OLED55C9AUA has a desktop stand included, and so does the Samsung Series 8 UN65RU8000, whereas the Samsung UN50NU6900, the Sony XBR49X800G and the TCL 43S405 do not. 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.

OLED Technology

The LG OLED55C9AUA features OLED technology, whereas the Samsung Series 8 UN65RU8000, the Samsung UN50NU6900, the Sony XBR49X800G and the TCL 43S405 do not. More ...

OLED 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 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.

One Month Newer

The LG OLED55C9AUA is one month newer than the Samsung Series 8 UN65RU8000, four months newer than the Samsung UN50NU6900, 23 months newer than the Sony XBR49X800G and 17 months newer than the TCL 43S405

One More Award

14 Reasons Against for Choosing the LG OLED55C9AUA

Smaller Display Diagonal

The LG OLED55C9AUA is a 55 TV. That's 10" smaller than the Samsung Series 8 UN65RU8000 (65"), 5.5" larger than the Samsung UN50NU6900 (49.5"), 6.5" larger than the Sony XBR49X800G (48.5") and 12" 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.

Not 3D

The LG OLED55C9AUA is not 3D (As do the the Samsung UN50NU6900 and the Sony XBR49X800G), whereas the Samsung Series 8 UN65RU8000 and the TCL 43S405 are. 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 LG OLED55C9AUA has received a Kagoo Score of 84, whereas the Samsung Series 8 UN65RU8000 scored 89, the Samsung UN50NU6900 scored 90 and the TCL 43S405 scored 86.

$572 More Expensive

The LG OLED55C9AUA is more expensive than the Samsung Series 8 UN65RU8000 by $100, more expensive than the Samsung UN50NU6900 by $572, more expensive than the Sony XBR49X800G by $310 and more expensive than the TCL 43S405 by $460.

Fewer Sellers

Only 4 shops sells the LG OLED55C9AUA, but 7 retailers sell the Samsung Series 8 UN65RU8000. More ...

The smaller the number of stores that stock this TV, the lower the competition amongst stores to keep prices low.
More Expensive to Run Over Five Years by 92%

The running costs of the LG OLED55C9AUA are $115 which is $26 more than the Samsung UN50NU6900, $22 more than the Sony XBR49X800G and $55 more than the TCL 43S405 over five years. Show assumptions.

Marginally Lower User Review Score
