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

20 Reasons For for Choosing the Samsung UN50NU6900

4K

The Samsung UN50NU6900 is 4K (as are the LG 55SM8600PUA and the VIZIO D50E1), whereas the Curtis PLED2435A 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.

Higher RMS Rated Power

The Samsung UN50NU6900 is a 20 RMS rated power TV, and so do the LG 55SM8600PUA and the VIZIO D50E1. That's 10W higher than the Sony KDL32W600D (10W). 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.

Screen Mirroring

The Samsung UN50NU6900 supports screen mirroring, and so does the LG 55SM8600PUA, but the Curtis PLED2435A, the Sony KDL32W600D 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 55SM8600PUA), however the Curtis PLED2435A, the Sony KDL32W600D 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 do the LG 55SM8600PUA and the Sony KDL32W600D), but the Curtis PLED2435A 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 does the LG 55SM8600PUA), however the Curtis PLED2435A, the Sony KDL32W600D 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, however the Curtis PLED2435A, the LG 55SM8600PUA, the Sony KDL32W600D 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 55SM8600PUA, the Sony KDL32W600D and the VIZIO D50E1, whereas the Curtis PLED2435A 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 55SM8600PUA, the Sony KDL32W600D and the VIZIO D50E1), however the Curtis PLED2435A 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 (as does the Sony KDL32W600D), but the Curtis PLED2435A, the LG 55SM8600PUA 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, however the Curtis PLED2435A scored 88, the LG 55SM8600PUA scored 87, the Sony KDL32W600D scored 85 and the VIZIO D50E1 scored 87.

Newer by 13 Months

The Samsung UN50NU6900 was released six years after the Curtis PLED2435A, released 13 months after the LG 55SM8600PUA, released six years after the Sony KDL32W600D and released 23 months after the VIZIO D50E1

7 Reasons Against for Choosing the Samsung UN50NU6900

Marginally Smaller Display Diagonal

The Samsung UN50NU6900 has a display diagonal of 49.5, whereas the Curtis PLED2435A is a 24" TV (25.5" smaller), the LG 55SM8600PUA is a 55" TV (5.5" larger), the Sony KDL32W600D is a 32" TV (17.5" 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.

6% Thicker

Samsung UN50NU6900 is 50.8 thick. That's 2.8mm thicker than the Curtis PLED2435A (48mm), 12.8mm thinner than the LG 55SM8600PUA (63.6mm), 15.2mm thinner than the Sony KDL32W600D (66mm) 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.

More Expensive by $117

The Samsung UN50NU6900 is $117 more expensive than the Curtis PLED2435A.

Less Retailers

The Samsung UN50NU6900 is only stocked by 5 shops, whereas the LG 55SM8600PUA is stocked by 9 retailers. More ...

Fewer numbers of shops reduces the price competition amongst retailers for the product and also reduces the chances of this TV remaining in stock.
Higher Running Costs Over Five Years by $28

The running costs over five years of the Samsung UN50NU6900 are $92 which is $20 more than the Curtis PLED2435A and $28 more than the Sony KDL32W600D. Show assumptions.

Worse Brand

Samsung TVs have an average rating of only 94.4%, whereas LG has an average rating of 95%.

Less Fairly Priced

Comparing the product reviews on average people thought the Samsung UN50NU6900 was less fairly priced.

The cheapest price that we could find for the UN50NU6900 in the US is $252.94 and in total we found 5 prices for it.

6 Reasons For for Choosing the VIZIO D50E1

Higher Display Resolution

The VIZIO D50E1 is 4K, and so are the LG 55SM8600PUA and the Samsung UN50NU6900, which is 4 times the display resolution of the Curtis PLED2435A (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.

Higher Dynamic Contrast Ratio

The VIZIO D50E1 has an ultra high (200000:1) dynamic contrast ratio, and so is the Sony KDL32W600D, whereas the Curtis PLED2435A only has a very high dynamic contrast ratio. More ...

'Contrast Ratio' is a measure of the image contrast that the TV is capable of producing - it is the difference between the brightness of the darkest black and brightest white that the TV can produce. The higher the contrast ratio the better the contrast.

A higher the contrast ratio means that the TV can product darker blacks and brighter whites, resulting in better image quality. So a TV with a contrast ratio of 1000:1 can produce whites which are 1000 times brighter than the darkest black that the TV can produce.

A Lot Higher RMS Rated Power

The VIZIO D50E1 has an RMS rated power of 20 (as do the LG 55SM8600PUA and the Samsung UN50NU6900), whereas the Sony KDL32W600D is only a 10W RMS rated power TV (10W 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.

Wi-Fi

The VIZIO D50E1 supports Wi-Fi (as do the LG 55SM8600PUA, the Samsung UN50NU6900 and the Sony KDL32W600D), however the Curtis PLED2435A 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 55SM8600PUA, the Samsung UN50NU6900 and the Sony KDL32W600D, but the Curtis PLED2435A 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

The VIZIO D50E1 reviewers thought the VIZIO D50E1 has a better price.

14 Reasons Against for Choosing the VIZIO D50E1

10% Smaller Display Diagonal

The VIZIO D50E1 is a 50 TV. That's 26" larger than the Curtis PLED2435A (24"), 5" smaller than the LG 55SM8600PUA (55"), 0.5" larger than the Samsung UN50NU6900 (49.5") and 18" larger than the Sony KDL32W600D (32"). 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.

28mm Thicker

The VIZIO D50E1 is a 76 thick TV, whereas the Curtis PLED2435A is a 48mm thick TV (28mm thinner), the LG 55SM8600PUA is a 63.6mm thick TV (12.4mm thinner), the Samsung UN50NU6900 is a 50.8mm thick TV (25.2mm thinner) and the Sony KDL32W600D is a 66mm thick TV (10mm 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.

40% Slower High Frequency Rate

VIZIO D50E1 is only 120 refresh rate. That's 60Hz faster than the Curtis PLED2435A (60Hz) and 80Hz slower than the LG 55SM8600PUA (200Hz). More ...

The refresh rate (also known as the high frequency rate) is the number of times that the image on the screen is refreshed per second. It affects how smoothly motion on the screen appears.

Action will appear smoother on TVs with a higher frequency rate: a TV with a high frequency rate of 30Hz refreshes the image on the screen once every 30 times every second. However a TV with a high frequency rate of 60Hz would refresh the image on the screen 60 times every second which means that action scenes would appear smoother.

2% Narrower Horizontal Viewing Angle

The VIZIO D50E1 is a 176 horizontal viewing angle TV. That's 2° narrower than the Sony KDL32W600D (178°). More ...

The horizontal viewing angle dictates the maximum angle at which the TV screen can be properly viewed.

A larger viewing angle means that the TV can be watched from many different parts of a room successfully. Conversely, a very small viewing angle means you would effectively have to sit directly in front of the TV to be able to view the screen successfully.

Only Two Loudspeakers

The number of loudspeakers on the VIZIO D50E1 is two, but the Sony KDL32W600D only has five loudspeakers. More ...

We do not know the number of loudspeakers on the Curtis PLED2435A, the LG 55SM8600PUA or the Samsung UN50NU6900. It is possible that they do not have any loudspeakers.

The number of loudspeakers is the total number of speakers provided with the TV, either inside the TV casing or as external speakers.

A greater number of speakers will allow for better quality audio and different frequencies. Multiple external speakers will enable to the TV to play surround sound audio.

Worse Kagoo Score

The VIZIO D50E1 has received a Kagoo Score of 87, but the Curtis PLED2435A scored 88 and the Samsung UN50NU6900 scored 89.

$250 More Expensive

The VIZIO D50E1 is more expensive than the Curtis PLED2435A by $250, more expensive than the Samsung UN50NU6900 by $133 and more expensive than the Sony KDL32W600D by $88.

Only 3 shops sells the VIZIO D50E1, however 4 shops sell the Curtis PLED2435A, 9 shops sell the LG 55SM8600PUA, 5 stores sell the Samsung UN50NU6900 and 4 retailers sell the Sony KDL32W600D. More ...

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

The VIZIO D50E1 is older than the LG 55SM8600PUA by 10 months and older than the Samsung UN50NU6900 by 23 months.

More Expensive to Run Over Five Years by 60%

The running costs over five years of the VIZIO D50E1 are $104 which is $32 more than the Curtis PLED2435A, $1 more than the LG 55SM8600PUA, $11 more than the Samsung UN50NU6900 and $39 more than the Sony KDL32W600D. Show assumptions.

3 Reasons For for Choosing the Curtis PLED2435A

A Lot Thinner

The Curtis PLED2435A has a thickness of 48, however the LG 55SM8600PUA is a 63.6mm thick TV (15.6mm thicker), the Samsung UN50NU6900 is a 50.8mm thick TV (2.8mm thicker), the Sony KDL32W600D is a 66mm thick TV (18mm thicker) and the VIZIO D50E1 is a 76mm thick TV (28mm 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.

Parental Controls

The Curtis PLED2435A supports parental controls, and so do the LG 55SM8600PUA and the Sony KDL32W600D, however the Samsung UN50NU6900 and the VIZIO D50E1 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.

$117 Cheaper

The Curtis PLED2435A is $394.01 cheaper than the LG 55SM8600PUA, $116.96 cheaper than the Samsung UN50NU6900, $162.02 cheaper than the Sony KDL32W600D and $250.22 cheaper than the VIZIO D50E1.

19 Reasons Against for Choosing the Curtis PLED2435A

Only Full Hd

The Curtis PLED2435A is full hd, which is 4 times lower display resolution of the LG 55SM8600PUA, the Samsung UN50NU6900 and the VIZIO D50E1 (4K). 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.

Smaller Display Diagonal

The Curtis PLED2435A is a 24 TV. That's 31" smaller than the LG 55SM8600PUA (55"), 25.5" smaller than the Samsung UN50NU6900 (49.5"), 8" smaller than the Sony KDL32W600D (32") and 26" 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.

Slower High Frequency Rate

The Curtis PLED2435A is a 60 refresh rate TV. That's 140Hz slower than the LG 55SM8600PUA (200Hz) and 60Hz slower than the VIZIO D50E1 (120Hz). More ...

The refresh rate (also known as the high frequency rate) is the number of times that the image on the screen is refreshed per second. It affects how smoothly motion on the screen appears.

Action will appear smoother on TVs with a higher frequency rate: a TV with a high frequency rate of 30Hz refreshes the image on the screen once every 30 times every second. However a TV with a high frequency rate of 60Hz would refresh the image on the screen 60 times every second which means that action scenes would appear smoother.

Lower Dynamic Contrast Ratio

The Curtis PLED2435A has a very high (5000:1) dynamic contrast ratio, however the Sony KDL32W600D and the VIZIO D50E1 have an ultra high dynamic contrast ratio. More ...

'Contrast Ratio' is a measure of the image contrast that the TV is capable of producing - it is the difference between the brightness of the darkest black and brightest white that the TV can produce. The higher the contrast ratio the better the contrast.

A higher the contrast ratio means that the TV can product darker blacks and brighter whites, resulting in better image quality. So a TV with a contrast ratio of 1000:1 can produce whites which are 1000 times brighter than the darkest black that the TV can produce.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The Curtis PLED2435A does not support Wi-Fi, whereas the LG 55SM8600PUA, the Samsung UN50NU6900, the Sony KDL32W600D and the VIZIO D50E1 do. 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.

Does Not Have an Ethernet Port

The Curtis PLED2435A does not have an ethernet port, however the LG 55SM8600PUA, the Samsung UN50NU6900, the Sony KDL32W600D and the VIZIO D50E1 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.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Curtis PLED2435A has received a Kagoo Score of 88, whereas the Samsung UN50NU6900 scored 89.

Fewer Sellers

Only 4 sellers sells the Curtis PLED2435A, but 9 shops sell the LG 55SM8600PUA and 5 sellers sell the Samsung UN50NU6900. More ...

The smaller the number of retailers that stock this TV, the lower the competition amongst retailers to keep prices low.
Over Five Years Older

The Curtis PLED2435A is older than the LG 55SM8600PUA by five years, older than the Samsung UN50NU6900 by six years and older than the VIZIO D50E1 by four years.

11% Higher Running Costs Over Five Years

Over five years the running costs of the Curtis PLED2435A are $72 which is $7 more than the Sony KDL32W600D. Show assumptions.

Appreciably Lower User Review Score

The average user rating of the Curtis PLED2435A is only 78%, whereas the average user rating of the LG 55SM8600PUA is 90% (based on 12 reviews), the Samsung UN50NU6900 is 92% (based on 2,117 reviews) and the VIZIO D50E1 is 91% (based on 45 reviews).

Appreciably Lower Overall Review Score

The average overall rating of the Curtis PLED2435A is only 78%, whereas the average overall rating of the LG 55SM8600PUA is 90% (based on 14 reviews), the Samsung UN50NU6900 is 92% (based on 2,117 reviews) and the VIZIO D50E1 is 91% (based on 45 reviews).

Curtis TVs have an average rating of only 74.8%, but LG has an average rating of 95%, Samsung has an average rating of 94.4%, Sony has an average rating of 85.2% and VIZIO has an average rating of 88.9%.

22 Reasons For for Choosing the LG 55SM8600PUA

Higher Display Resolution

The LG 55SM8600PUA is 4K, and so are the Samsung UN50NU6900 and the VIZIO D50E1, which is 4 times the display resolution of the Curtis PLED2435A (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.

Larger Display Diagonal

The LG 55SM8600PUA is a 55 TV. That's 31" larger than the Curtis PLED2435A (24"), 5.5" larger than the Samsung UN50NU6900 (49.5"), 23" larger than the Sony KDL32W600D (32") and 5" larger than the VIZIO D50E1 (50"). More ...

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

Faster High Frequency Rate

The LG 55SM8600PUA has a high frequency rate of 200. That's 140Hz faster than the Curtis PLED2435A (60Hz) and 80Hz faster than the VIZIO D50E1 (120Hz). More ...

The refresh rate (also known as the high frequency rate) is the number of times that the image on the screen is refreshed per second. It affects how smoothly motion on the screen appears.

Action will appear smoother on TVs with a higher frequency rate: a TV with a high frequency rate of 30Hz refreshes the image on the screen once every 30 times every second. However a TV with a high frequency rate of 60Hz would refresh the image on the screen 60 times every second which means that action scenes would appear smoother.

10W Higher RMS Rated Power

The LG 55SM8600PUA has an RMS rated power of 20 (as do the Samsung UN50NU6900 and the VIZIO D50E1), but the Sony KDL32W600D is only a 10W RMS rated power TV (10W 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.

Screen Mirroring

The LG 55SM8600PUA supports screen mirroring (as does the Samsung UN50NU6900), but the Curtis PLED2435A, the Sony KDL32W600D 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.

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

'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 55SM8600PUA has a game mode, and so do the Samsung UN50NU6900 and the Sony KDL32W600D, but the Curtis PLED2435A and the VIZIO D50E1 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 55SM8600PUA features High Dynamic Range Imaging (HDRI), and so does the Samsung UN50NU6900, however the Curtis PLED2435A, the Sony KDL32W600D 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 LG 55SM8600PUA features local dimming, but the Curtis PLED2435A, the Samsung UN50NU6900, the Sony KDL32W600D 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.

USB Recording

The LG 55SM8600PUA features USB recording, however the Curtis PLED2435A, the Samsung UN50NU6900, the Sony KDL32W600D and the VIZIO D50E1 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 helps reduce intrusive audio and visual noise for a clearer and better viewing experience.

Wi-Fi

The LG 55SM8600PUA supports Wi-Fi (as do the Samsung UN50NU6900, the Sony KDL32W600D and the VIZIO D50E1), whereas the Curtis PLED2435A does not support this feature. More ...

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

Bluetooth

The LG 55SM8600PUA supports Bluetooth, but the Curtis PLED2435A, the Samsung UN50NU6900, the Sony KDL32W600D 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 LG 55SM8600PUA has an ethernet port, and so do the Samsung UN50NU6900, the Sony KDL32W600D and the VIZIO D50E1, however the Curtis PLED2435A 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 55SM8600PUA supports Miracast, but the Curtis PLED2435A, the Samsung UN50NU6900, the Sony KDL32W600D 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.

Picture-in-Picture

The LG 55SM8600PUA supports Picture-in-Picture, and so does the Sony KDL32W600D, however the Curtis PLED2435A, the Samsung UN50NU6900 and the VIZIO D50E1 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 55SM8600PUA features voice control, whereas the Curtis PLED2435A, the Samsung UN50NU6900, the Sony KDL32W600D and the VIZIO D50E1 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 55SM8600PUA has a desktop stand included, and so does the Sony KDL32W600D, however the Curtis PLED2435A, the Samsung UN50NU6900 and the VIZIO D50E1 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.

More Shops Are Selling it

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

One More Award

The LG 55SM8600PUA has received 1 award, whereas the Curtis PLED2435A has received no awards, the Samsung UN50NU6900 has received no awards, the Sony KDL32W600D has received no awards and the VIZIO D50E1 has received no awards.

8 Reasons Against for Choosing the LG 55SM8600PUA

Thicker

LG 55SM8600PUA is 63.6 thick, but the Curtis PLED2435A is a 48mm thick TV (15.6mm thinner), the Samsung UN50NU6900 is a 50.8mm thick TV (12.8mm thinner), the Sony KDL32W600D is a 66mm thick TV (2.4mm thicker) and the VIZIO D50E1 is a 76mm thick TV (12.4mm 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.

12 Reasons For for Choosing the Sony KDL32W600D

Ultra High (1000000:1) Dynamic Contrast Ratio

The Sony KDL32W600D has an ultra high (1000000:1) dynamic contrast ratio (as is the VIZIO D50E1), whereas the Curtis PLED2435A only has a very high dynamic contrast ratio. More ...

'Contrast Ratio' is a measure of the image contrast that the TV is capable of producing - it is the difference between the brightness of the darkest black and brightest white that the TV can produce. The higher the contrast ratio the better the contrast.

A higher the contrast ratio means that the TV can product darker blacks and brighter whites, resulting in better image quality. So a TV with a contrast ratio of 1000:1 can produce whites which are 1000 times brighter than the darkest black that the TV can produce.

Slightly Wider Horizontal Viewing Angle

The Sony KDL32W600D has a horizontal viewing angle of 178, whereas the VIZIO D50E1 is only a 176° horizontal viewing angle TV (2° narrower). More ...

The horizontal viewing angle dictates the maximum angle at which the TV screen can be properly viewed.

A larger viewing angle means that the TV can be watched from many different parts of a room successfully. Conversely, a very small viewing angle means you would effectively have to sit directly in front of the TV to be able to view the screen successfully.

Three More Loudspeakers

The number of loudspeakers on the Sony KDL32W600D is five, but the VIZIO D50E1 only has two loudspeakers. More ...

We do not know the number of loudspeakers on the Curtis PLED2435A, the LG 55SM8600PUA or the Samsung UN50NU6900. It is possible that they do not have any loudspeakers.

The number of loudspeakers is the total number of speakers provided with the TV, either inside the TV casing or as external speakers.

A greater number of speakers will allow for better quality audio and different frequencies. Multiple external speakers will enable to the TV to play surround sound audio.

Parental Controls

The Sony KDL32W600D supports parental controls (as do the Curtis PLED2435A and the LG 55SM8600PUA), whereas the Samsung UN50NU6900 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.

Game Mode

The Sony KDL32W600D has a game mode (as do the LG 55SM8600PUA and the Samsung UN50NU6900), whereas the Curtis PLED2435A 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.

Noise Reduction

The Sony KDL32W600D supports noise reduction (as does the LG 55SM8600PUA), but the Curtis PLED2435A, the Samsung UN50NU6900 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 Sony KDL32W600D supports Wi-Fi, and so do the LG 55SM8600PUA, the Samsung UN50NU6900 and the VIZIO D50E1, however the Curtis PLED2435A 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 Sony KDL32W600D has an ethernet port (as do the LG 55SM8600PUA, the Samsung UN50NU6900 and the VIZIO D50E1), but the Curtis PLED2435A 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 Sony KDL32W600D supports Wi-Fi Direct (as does the Samsung UN50NU6900), whereas the Curtis PLED2435A, the LG 55SM8600PUA 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.

Picture-in-Picture

The Sony KDL32W600D supports Picture-in-Picture (as does the LG 55SM8600PUA), but the Curtis PLED2435A, the Samsung UN50NU6900 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.

Desktop Stand Included

The Sony KDL32W600D has a desktop stand included (as does the LG 55SM8600PUA), but the Curtis PLED2435A, the Samsung UN50NU6900 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.

$39 Cheaper to Run Over Five Years

Over five years the Sony KDL32W600D is $7 cheaper to run than the Curtis PLED2435A, $38 cheaper to run than the LG 55SM8600PUA, $28 cheaper to run than the Samsung UN50NU6900 and $39 cheaper to run than the VIZIO D50E1. More ...

9 Reasons Against for Choosing the Sony KDL32W600D

A Lot Smaller Display Diagonal

The Sony KDL32W600D has a display diagonal of 32, however the Curtis PLED2435A is a 24" TV (8" smaller), the LG 55SM8600PUA is a 55" TV (23" larger), the Samsung UN50NU6900 is a 49.5" TV (17.5" larger) and the VIZIO D50E1 is a 50" TV (18" 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.

18mm Thicker

The Sony KDL32W600D is a 66 thick TV. That's 18mm thicker than the Curtis PLED2435A (48mm), 2.4mm thicker than the LG 55SM8600PUA (63.6mm), 15.2mm thicker than the Samsung UN50NU6900 (50.8mm) and 10mm 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.

Significantly Slower Motion Interpolation Frequency

The Sony KDL32W600D has a motion interpolation frequency of 240, whereas the LG 55SM8600PUA is a 3,300Hz motion interpolation frequency TV (3,060Hz faster). More ...

The motion interpolation frequency is the frame rate which the TV is able to artificially create by inserting additional frames into the picture between the frames included in the original video source.

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

Lower RMS Rated Power

The Sony KDL32W600D is a 10 RMS rated power TV. That's 10W lower than the LG 55SM8600PUA, the Samsung UN50NU6900 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.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Sony KDL32W600D has received a Kagoo Score of 85, but the Curtis PLED2435A scored 88, the LG 55SM8600PUA scored 87, the Samsung UN50NU6900 scored 89 and the VIZIO D50E1 scored 87.

More Expensive by $162

The Sony KDL32W600D is $162 more expensive than the Curtis PLED2435A and $45 more expensive than the Samsung UN50NU6900.

Not As Many Stockists

The Sony KDL32W600D is only stocked by 4 stores, however the LG 55SM8600PUA is stocked by 9 retailers and the Samsung UN50NU6900 is stocked by 5 sellers. 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 Five Years

The Sony KDL32W600D is one month older than the Curtis PLED2435A, five years older than the LG 55SM8600PUA, six years older than the Samsung UN50NU6900 and four years older than the VIZIO D50E1.

Worse Brand

Sony TVs have an average rating of only 85.2%, however LG has an average rating of 95%, Samsung has an average rating of 94.4% and VIZIO has an average rating of 88.9%.

The Sony KDL32W600D is 721mm wide, 66mm tall, 436mm thick and weighs 4.9kg.
