Reasons For

3 Reasons For
10% larger screen size Edit
The JVC LT-55C550 is a 55" TV. That's 5" larger than the Philips 50PUT6400 (50"). 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.

4W higher RMS rated power Edit
The JVC LT-55C550 has an RMS rated power of 24W, whereas the Philips 50PUT6400 is only a 20W RMS rated power TV (4W lower). Read more

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.

9 Reasons For

The Philips 50PUT6400 has a motion interpolation frequency of 700Hz, but the JVC LT-55C550 is only a 50Hz motion interpolation frequency TV (650Hz slower). Read 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. Motion interpolation technology can sometimes create some unwanted side effects such glitches when the technology suddenly activates during an action scene.
