Multiple reviews mentioned that Samsung UN50NU6900 has marvellous user reviews with 94% of buyers recommending this TV to others.

21 Reasons For for Choosing the Samsung UN50NU6900

4K

The Samsung UN50NU6900 is 4K (as is the LG 49UF6400), however the LG 50LF6100 is only full hd. More ...

HD Type on a TV refers to the type of high definition image that the TV is capable of displaying (e.g. Full HD, 4K Ultra HD).

The better the HD type the better the image resolution and the perceived sharpness of the image will be. Images will appear more life like and realistic. This will be more noticeable on a TV with a larger display diagonal.

Thinner

The Samsung UN50NU6900 is a 50.8 thick TV. That's 30.7mm thinner than the LG 49UF6400 (81.5mm), 5.08mm thinner than the LG 50LF6100 (55.88mm), 13.21mm thinner than the VIZIO D50D1 (64.01mm) and 25.15mm thinner than the VIZIO E50D1 (75.95mm). 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.

Screen Mirroring

The Samsung UN50NU6900 supports screen mirroring, whereas the LG 49UF6400, the LG 50LF6100, the VIZIO D50D1 and the VIZIO E50D1 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, but the LG 49UF6400, the LG 50LF6100, the VIZIO D50D1 and the VIZIO E50D1 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, whereas the LG 49UF6400, the LG 50LF6100, the VIZIO D50D1 and the VIZIO E50D1 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), but the LG 49UF6400, the LG 50LF6100, the VIZIO D50D1 and the VIZIO E50D1 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, but the LG 49UF6400, the LG 50LF6100, the VIZIO D50D1 and the VIZIO E50D1 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 Direct

The Samsung UN50NU6900 supports Wi-Fi Direct (as do the LG 49UF6400 and the LG 50LF6100), whereas the VIZIO D50D1 and the VIZIO E50D1 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, but the LG 49UF6400 scored 87, the LG 50LF6100 scored 86, the VIZIO D50D1 scored 85 and the VIZIO E50D1 scored 87.

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.

Newer by Three Years

The Samsung UN50NU6900 was released 20 months ago, but the LG 49UF6400 was released five years ago, the LG 50LF6100 was released five years ago, the VIZIO D50D1 was released five years ago and the VIZIO E50D1 was released four years ago

5 Reasons Against for Choosing the Samsung UN50NU6900

0.5" Smaller Display Diagonal

The Samsung UN50NU6900 has a display diagonal of 49.5 (as do the VIZIO D50D1 and the VIZIO E50D1), however the LG 49UF6400 is a 49" TV (0.5" smaller) and the LG 50LF6100 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.

More Expensive by $110

The Samsung UN50NU6900 is $110 more expensive than the VIZIO E50D1.

$27 More Expensive to Run Over Five Years

Over five years the Samsung UN50NU6900 costs $90 to run which is $27 more than the LG 50LF6100, $23 more than the VIZIO D50D1 and $21 more than the VIZIO E50D1. Show assumptions.

User Review Rating is Slightly Worse

The Samsung UN50NU6900 has an average user score of 92%, but the LG 49UF6400 has an average user rating of 93% (based on 9 reviews).

Worse Brand

Samsung TVs have an average rating of only 94.2%, however LG has an average rating of 95%.

The cheapest price that we could find for the UN50NU6900 in the US is $360.00 and in total we found 4 prices for it.

Higher Display Resolution

The LG 49UF6400 is 4K, and so is the Samsung UN50NU6900, which is 4 times the display resolution of the LG 50LF6100 (full hd). More ...

The VIZIO E50D1 features local dimming, whereas the LG 49UF6400, the LG 50LF6100, the Samsung UN50NU6900 and the VIZIO D50D1 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.

Cheaper by $110

The VIZIO E50D1 costs $250.00, whereas the LG 49UF6400 is $449.00, the LG 50LF6100 is $619.99, the Samsung UN50NU6900 is $360.00 and the VIZIO D50D1 is $576.99.

10 Reasons Against for Choosing the VIZIO E50D1

Moderately Smaller Display Diagonal

The VIZIO E50D1 has a display diagonal of 49.5 (as do the Samsung UN50NU6900 and the VIZIO D50D1), however the LG 49UF6400 is a 49" TV (0.5" smaller) and the LG 50LF6100 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.

25.15mm Thicker

The VIZIO E50D1 is a 75.95 thick TV. That's 5.55mm thinner than the LG 49UF6400 (81.5mm), 20.07mm thicker than the LG 50LF6100 (55.88mm), 25.15mm thicker than the Samsung UN50NU6900 (50.8mm) and 11.94mm thicker than the VIZIO D50D1 (64.01mm). 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

The VIZIO E50D1 has received a Kagoo Score of 87, but the Samsung UN50NU6900 scored 89.

Not As Many Stockists

The VIZIO E50D1 is only stocked by 3 sellers, however the Samsung UN50NU6900 is stocked by 4 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 Two Years

The VIZIO E50D1 is three years older than the Samsung UN50NU6900.

Higher Running Costs Over Five Years by $7

Over five years the running costs of the VIZIO E50D1 are $69 which is $7 more than the LG 50LF6100 and $2 more than the VIZIO D50D1. Show assumptions.

User Review Rating is Considerably Worse

The VIZIO E50D1 only has an average user score of 75%, but the LG 49UF6400 has an average user rating of 93% (based on 9 reviews), the LG 50LF6100 has an average user rating of 92% (based on 534 reviews), the Samsung UN50NU6900 has an average user rating of 92% (based on 2,120 reviews) and the VIZIO D50D1 has an average user rating of 86% (based on 468 reviews).

Overall Review Rating is Considerably Worse

The VIZIO E50D1 only has an average overall score of 75%, but the LG 50LF6100 has an average overall rating of 83% (based on 536 reviews), the Samsung UN50NU6900 has an average overall rating of 92% (based on 2,120 reviews) and the VIZIO D50D1 has an average overall rating of 78% (based on 469 reviews).

Worse Brand

VIZIO TVs have an average rating of only 87%, however LG has an average rating of 95% and Samsung has an average rating of 94.2%.

Worse At Producing a High Quality Picture

Comparing the product reviews on average people thought the VIZIO E50D1 was worse at producing a high quality picture.

The cheapest price that we could find for the E50D1 in the US is $250.00 and in total we found 3 prices for it.

6 Reasons For for Choosing the LG 50LF6100

Moderately Larger Display Diagonal

The LG 50LF6100 has a display diagonal of 50, whereas the LG 49UF6400, the Samsung UN50NU6900, the VIZIO D50D1 and the VIZIO E50D1 are all only 49.5" TVs (0.5" 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.

Wi-Fi Direct

The LG 50LF6100 supports Wi-Fi Direct (as do the LG 49UF6400 and the Samsung UN50NU6900), but the VIZIO D50D1 and the VIZIO E50D1 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.

Desktop Stand Included

The LG 50LF6100 has a desktop stand included, however the LG 49UF6400, the Samsung UN50NU6900, the VIZIO D50D1 and the VIZIO E50D1 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.

32% Cheaper to Run Over Five Years

Over five years the LG 50LF6100 is $29 cheaper to run than the LG 49UF6400, $27 cheaper to run than the Samsung UN50NU6900, $4 cheaper to run than the VIZIO D50D1 and $7 cheaper to run than the VIZIO E50D1. More ...

HD Type on a TV refers to the type of high definition image that the TV is capable of displaying (e.g. Full HD, 4K Ultra HD).

The better the HD type the better the image resolution and the perceived sharpness of the image will be. Images will appear more life like and realistic. This will be more noticeable on a TV with a larger display diagonal.

9% Thicker
