Vastly lower annual energy consumption Edit

24mm thinner Edit

4 Reasons For
8" larger screen size Edit
The Seiki SE40FO04 has a screen size of 40", whereas the JVC LT-32C351 is only a 32" TV (8" 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.

20% larger visible diagonal screen size Edit
The Seiki SE40FO04 is a 101.6cm visible diagonal screen size TV. That's 20.32cm larger than the JVC LT-32C351 (101.6cm).
Brighter display brightness Edit
The Seiki SE40FO04 has a display brightness of 250 cd/m², but the JVC LT-32C351 is only a 220 cd/m² display brightness TV (30 cd/m² dimmer).
Three HDMI ports Edit
The Seiki SE40FO04 has three HDMI ports, however the JVC LT-32C351 only has two HDMI ports. Read more

The HDMI ports quantity is the number of ports that the TV has that will accept a HDMI cable. HDMI is the most common type of cable used to connect modern TVs, DVD players, games consoles etc.

A greater number of HDMI ports will allow you to permanently connect more devices to the TV and will reduce the need to reach around the back of the TV to unplug and plug in cables when switching between devices.
