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

19 Reasons For for Choosing the Samsung UN50NU6900

4K

The Samsung UN50NU6900 is 4K (as are the LG 55SM8600PUA, the TCL 43S405 and the VIZIO D50E1), however the Sceptre X322BVSR is only hd ready. 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 12.8mm thinner than the LG 55SM8600PUA (63.6mm), 28.2mm thinner than the Sceptre X322BVSR (79mm), 22.8mm thinner than the TCL 43S405 (73.6mm) and 25.2mm thinner than the VIZIO D50E1 (76mm). More ...

The thickness of a TV measured from the back of the TV to the front of the TV. Curved TVs will have quite a big depth as this dimension is measured from the back of the centre of the screen to the front of the edges of the screen.

A thinner TV has the advantage of appearing more elegant and will also mean that the TV will not stick out as much when mounted on a wall.

Screen Mirroring

The Samsung UN50NU6900 supports screen mirroring, and so does the LG 55SM8600PUA, whereas the Sceptre X322BVSR, the TCL 43S405 and the VIZIO D50E1 do not. More ...

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

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

Smartphone Remote App

The Samsung UN50NU6900 has a smartphone remote app (as does the LG 55SM8600PUA), but the Sceptre X322BVSR, the TCL 43S405 and the VIZIO D50E1 do not have this feature. More ...

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

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

Game Mode

The Samsung UN50NU6900 has a game mode (as does the LG 55SM8600PUA), whereas the Sceptre X322BVSR, the TCL 43S405 and the VIZIO D50E1 do not have this feature. More ...

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

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

High Dynamic Range Imaging (HDRI)

The Samsung UN50NU6900 features High Dynamic Range Imaging (HDRI) (as does the LG 55SM8600PUA), but the Sceptre X322BVSR, the TCL 43S405 and the VIZIO D50E1 do not feature this benefit. More ...

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

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

Digital Clean View

The Samsung UN50NU6900 supports Digital Clean View, but the LG 55SM8600PUA, the Sceptre X322BVSR, the TCL 43S405 and the VIZIO D50E1 do not. More ...

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

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

Wi-Fi

The Samsung UN50NU6900 supports Wi-Fi, and so do the LG 55SM8600PUA and the VIZIO D50E1, however the Sceptre X322BVSR and the TCL 43S405 do 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 and the VIZIO D50E1), but the Sceptre X322BVSR and the TCL 43S405 do 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, whereas the LG 55SM8600PUA, the Sceptre X322BVSR, the TCL 43S405 and the VIZIO D50E1 do not support this feature. More ...

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

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

Better Kagoo Score

The Samsung UN50NU6900 has received a Kagoo Score of 89, but the LG 55SM8600PUA scored 86, the Sceptre X322BVSR scored 86, the TCL 43S405 scored 86 and the VIZIO D50E1 scored 87.

Newer by One Year

The Samsung UN50NU6900 was released 17 months ago, but the LG 55SM8600PUA was released two years ago, the Sceptre X322BVSR was released three years ago, the TCL 43S405 was released three years ago and the VIZIO D50E1 was released three years ago

Moderately Better User Reviews

11 Reasons Against for Choosing the Samsung UN50NU6900

5.5" Smaller Display Diagonal

The Samsung UN50NU6900 has a display diagonal of 49.5, however the LG 55SM8600PUA is a 55" TV (5.5" larger), the Sceptre X322BVSR is a 32" TV (17.5" smaller), the TCL 43S405 is a 43" TV (6.5" smaller) and the VIZIO D50E1 is a 50" TV (0.5" larger). More ...

‘Display Diagonal’ is the measure of the size of the TV screen from top-left to bottom-right corner, excluding any frame or border.

One of the most important considerations when choosing the right screen size for your TV is the typical distance from which you will be viewing the screen. TVs with a bigger display diagonal allow you to make the most of HD content and are great for watching movies. A good rule of thumb is to multiply the display diagonal by 2.5 to determine the viewing distance. So a 40 inch TV is best viewed from 100 inches away, which is equivalent to 8.3 feet or 2.54m. For home cinema setups and a truly immersive experience this ratio can be reduced to 1.2. This will give a screen size that fills 40 degrees of the viewer's field of vision. So if you are viewing from a distance of 6ft (72 inches) you would need a TV display diagonal of 60 inches.

Not 3D

The Samsung UN50NU6900 is not 3D (As do the the LG 55SM8600PUA, the Sceptre X322BVSR and the VIZIO D50E1), but the TCL 43S405 is. More ...

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

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

More Expensive by $205

The Samsung UN50NU6900 is $205 more expensive than the Sceptre X322BVSR.

Not As Many Stockists

The Samsung UN50NU6900 is only stocked by 5 retailers, however the LG 55SM8600PUA is stocked by 6 sellers. More ...

Fewer numbers of sellers reduces the chances of the product remaining in stock and also reduces the price competition amongst retailers for this TV.
$29 More Expensive to Run Over Five Years

The Samsung UN50NU6900 costs $88 to run which is $25 more than the Sceptre X322BVSR and $29 more than the TCL 43S405 over five years. Show assumptions.

Worse Brand

A Worse Size

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

Has Worse Technical Features

A Worse Smart TV

Our analysis of the Samsung UN50NU6900 reviews indicates that more reviewers thought the Samsung UN50NU6900 was a worse smart TV.

Has a Worse Useful Remote Control

Our analysis of the Samsung UN50NU6900 reviews indicates that more reviewers thought the Samsung UN50NU6900 has a worse useful remote control.

4 Reasons For for Choosing the VIZIO D50E1

Higher Display Resolution

The VIZIO D50E1 is 4K, and so are the LG 55SM8600PUA, the Samsung UN50NU6900 and the TCL 43S405, which is 9 times the display resolution of the Sceptre X322BVSR (hd ready). 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.

The VIZIO D50E1 supports Wi-Fi (as do the LG 55SM8600PUA and the Samsung UN50NU6900), but the Sceptre X322BVSR and the TCL 43S405 do 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.

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

Has a Better Price

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

13 Reasons Against for Choosing the VIZIO D50E1

Smaller Display Diagonal

The VIZIO D50E1 is a 50 TV. That's 5" smaller than the LG 55SM8600PUA (55"), 0.5" larger than the Samsung UN50NU6900 (49.5"), 18" larger than the Sceptre X322BVSR (32") and 7" larger than the TCL 43S405 (43"). More ...

‘Display Diagonal’ is the measure of the size of the TV screen from top-left to bottom-right corner, excluding any frame or border.

One of the most important considerations when choosing the right screen size for your TV is the typical distance from which you will be viewing the screen. TVs with a bigger display diagonal allow you to make the most of HD content and are great for watching movies. A good rule of thumb is to multiply the display diagonal by 2.5 to determine the viewing distance. So a 40 inch TV is best viewed from 100 inches away, which is equivalent to 8.3 feet or 2.54m. For home cinema setups and a truly immersive experience this ratio can be reduced to 1.2. This will give a screen size that fills 40 degrees of the viewer's field of vision. So if you are viewing from a distance of 6ft (72 inches) you would need a TV display diagonal of 60 inches.

25% Thicker

The VIZIO D50E1 has a thickness of 76, however the LG 55SM8600PUA is a 63.6mm thick TV (12.4mm thinner), the Samsung UN50NU6900 is a 50.8mm thick TV (25.2mm thinner), the Sceptre X322BVSR is a 79mm thick TV (3mm thicker) and the TCL 43S405 is a 73.6mm thick TV (2.4mm thinner). More ...

The thickness of a TV measured from the back of the TV to the front of the TV. Curved TVs will have quite a big depth as this dimension is measured from the back of the centre of the screen to the front of the edges of the screen.

A thinner TV has the advantage of appearing more elegant and will also mean that the TV will not stick out as much when mounted on a wall.

Slower High Frequency Rate

The VIZIO D50E1 is a 120 refresh rate TV. That's 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.

Not 3D

The VIZIO D50E1 is not 3D (As do the the LG 55SM8600PUA, the Samsung UN50NU6900 and the Sceptre X322BVSR), whereas the TCL 43S405 is. More ...

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

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

21 Reasons For for Choosing the LG 55SM8600PUA

Higher Display Resolution

The LG 55SM8600PUA is 4K, and so are the Samsung UN50NU6900, the TCL 43S405 and the VIZIO D50E1, which is 9 times the display resolution of the Sceptre X322BVSR (hd ready). 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.

30% Larger Display Diagonal

The LG 55SM8600PUA is a 55 TV. That's 5.5" larger than the Samsung UN50NU6900 (49.5"), 23" larger than the Sceptre X322BVSR (32"), 12" larger than the TCL 43S405 (43") and 5" larger 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.

29% Faster High Frequency Rate

LG 55SM8600PUA is 200 refresh rate. That's 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.

Screen Mirroring

The LG 55SM8600PUA supports screen mirroring (as does the Samsung UN50NU6900), whereas the Sceptre X322BVSR, the TCL 43S405 and the VIZIO D50E1 do not support this feature. More ...

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

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

Parental Controls

The LG 55SM8600PUA supports parental controls, whereas the Samsung UN50NU6900, the Sceptre X322BVSR, the TCL 43S405 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.

Smartphone Remote App

The LG 55SM8600PUA has a smartphone remote app, and so does the Samsung UN50NU6900, but the Sceptre X322BVSR, the TCL 43S405 and the VIZIO D50E1 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 55SM8600PUA has a game mode, and so does the Samsung UN50NU6900, whereas the Sceptre X322BVSR, the TCL 43S405 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, but the Sceptre X322BVSR, the TCL 43S405 and the VIZIO D50E1 do not. More ...

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

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

Local Dimming

The LG 55SM8600PUA features local dimming, whereas the Samsung UN50NU6900, the Sceptre X322BVSR, the TCL 43S405 and the VIZIO D50E1 do not feature this benefit. More ...

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

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

USB Recording

The LG 55SM8600PUA features USB recording, but the Samsung UN50NU6900, the Sceptre X322BVSR, the TCL 43S405 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

The LG 55SM8600PUA supports noise reduction, but the Samsung UN50NU6900, the Sceptre X322BVSR, the TCL 43S405 and the VIZIO D50E1 do not. More ...

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 and the VIZIO D50E1), however the Sceptre X322BVSR and the TCL 43S405 do 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 55SM8600PUA supports Bluetooth, whereas the Samsung UN50NU6900, the Sceptre X322BVSR, the TCL 43S405 and the VIZIO D50E1 do not support this feature. More ...

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

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

Ethernet Port

The LG 55SM8600PUA has an ethernet port, and so do the Samsung UN50NU6900 and the VIZIO D50E1, but the Sceptre X322BVSR and the TCL 43S405 do 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, whereas the Samsung UN50NU6900, the Sceptre X322BVSR, the TCL 43S405 and the VIZIO D50E1 do not support this feature. More ...

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

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

Picture-in-Picture

The LG 55SM8600PUA supports Picture-in-Picture, but the Samsung UN50NU6900, the Sceptre X322BVSR, the TCL 43S405 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, however the Samsung UN50NU6900, the Sceptre X322BVSR, the TCL 43S405 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, but the Samsung UN50NU6900, the Sceptre X322BVSR, the TCL 43S405 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 stores 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, however the Samsung UN50NU6900 has received no awards, the Sceptre X322BVSR has received no awards, the TCL 43S405 has received no awards and the VIZIO D50E1 has received no awards.

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.

15 Reasons Against for Choosing the TCL 43S405

1 Reason For for Choosing the Sceptre X322BVSR

Cheaper by $205

The Sceptre X322BVSR is $607 cheaper than the LG 55SM8600PUA, $205.01 cheaper than the Samsung UN50NU6900, $350.01 cheaper than the TCL 43S405 and $296.21 cheaper than the VIZIO D50E1.

20 Reasons Against for Choosing the Sceptre X322BVSR

Only Hd Ready

The Sceptre X322BVSR is hd ready, but the LG 55SM8600PUA, the Samsung UN50NU6900, the TCL 43S405 and the VIZIO D50E1 are all 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.

23" Smaller Display Diagonal

The Sceptre X322BVSR has a display diagonal of 32, but the LG 55SM8600PUA is a 55" TV (23" larger), the Samsung UN50NU6900 is a 49.5" TV (17.5" larger), the TCL 43S405 is a 43" TV (11" 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.

Thicker

The Sceptre X322BVSR has a thickness of 79. That's 15.4mm thicker than the LG 55SM8600PUA (63.6mm), 28.2mm thicker than the Samsung UN50NU6900 (50.8mm), 5.4mm thicker than the TCL 43S405 (73.6mm) and 3mm thicker 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.

Not 3D

The Sceptre X322BVSR is not 3D (As do the the LG 55SM8600PUA, the Samsung UN50NU6900 and the VIZIO D50E1), whereas the TCL 43S405 is. More ...

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

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

Worse Kagoo Score

The Sceptre X322BVSR has received a Kagoo Score of 86, whereas the Samsung UN50NU6900 scored 89 and the VIZIO D50E1 scored 87.

Fewer Sellers

The Sceptre X322BVSR is only stocked by 3 retailers, but the LG 55SM8600PUA is stocked by 6 retailers and the Samsung UN50NU6900 is stocked by 5 stores. More ...

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

The Sceptre X322BVSR is three months older than the LG 55SM8600PUA, 15 months older than the Samsung UN50NU6900 and two months older than the TCL 43S405.

$4 More Expensive to Run Over Five Years

The running costs of the Sceptre X322BVSR are $63 which is $4 more than the TCL 43S405 over five years. Show assumptions.
