Reasons For

3 Reasons For
5" larger screen size Edit
The NEC MultiSync E554 has a screen size of 55", whereas the Seiki SE50FO04 is only a 50" TV (5" smaller). Read more

The display diagonal of a TV is the most common measure of screen size and is the distance from the top left to the bottom right of the visible part of a TV screen 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. 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 viewing from a distance of 6ft (72 inches) you would need a TV display diagonal of 60 inches.

TVs with a bigger display diagonal allow you to make the most of HD content and are great for watching movies.

60Hz faster refresh rate Edit
The NEC MultiSync E554 has a refresh rate of 120Hz, however the Seiki SE50FO04 is only a 60Hz refresh rate TV (60Hz slower). Read more

The refresh rate is also known as the high frequency rate and it affects how smooth motion on the screen appears. The high frequency rate is the number of times that the image on the screen is refreshed per second. A TV with a high frequency rate of 30Hz refreshes the image on the screen once every 30 times every second. 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.

The high frequency rate is also known as the refresh rate and it affects how smooth motion on the screen appears. Action will appear smoother on TVs with a higher frequency rate.

150 cd/m² brighter display brightness Edit
The NEC MultiSync E554 has a display brightness of 350 cd/m², but the Seiki SE50FO04 is only a 200 cd/m² display brightness TV (150 cd/m² dimmer).
5 Reasons For
Two USB 2.0 ports Edit
The number of USB 2.0 ports on the Seiki SE50FO04 is two, but the NEC MultiSync E554 only has one USB 2.0 port. Read more

USB ports are useful for displaying on your TV photos / videos or playing music that is stored on USB key drives. The USB port can also be used for charging devices from your TV (as long as it's switched on), and for installing software updates on the TV.

More USB ports will allow you to connect more USB devices to the TV simultaneously without needing to continuous plug in and unplug cables.

Ethernet LAN connection Edit
The Seiki SE50FO04 has an Ethernet LAN connection, whereas the NEC MultiSync E554 does not.
Lighter Edit
Seiki SE50FO04 is 10.5kg heavy. That's 9.6kg lighter than the NEC MultiSync E554 (10.5kg). Read more

£840 cheaper
The Seiki SE50FO04 is £840.25 cheaper than the NEC MultiSync E554.
Cheaper to run by £87.97
