7 Reasons For
20% larger screen size Edit
The JVC LT-40C550 has a screen size of 40", however the JVC LT-32C655 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.

Larger visible diagonal screen size Edit
The JVC LT-40C550 is a 101.6cm visible diagonal screen size TV. That's 20.32cm larger than the JVC LT-32C655 (101.6cm).
Three HDMI ports Edit
The number of HDMI ports on the JVC LT-40C550 is three, but the JVC LT-32C655 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.

42% thinner Edit
The JVC LT-40C550 is a 68.7mm thick TV. That's 28.3mm thinner than the JVC LT-32C655 (68.7mm). Read more

The depth of the TV is the thickness of the 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.

30g lighter Edit
The JVC LT-40C550 has a weight of 6.4kg, however the JVC LT-32C655 is a 6.4kg heavy TV (30g heavier). Read more

The weight is the total weight of the TV excluding all packaging.

A lighter weight TV will be easier to move around and to mount on a wall. Some of the larger, very heavy TVs may require lightweight partition walls to be reinforced before the TV could be mounted.

Energy efficiency rating is higher
The JVC LT-40C550 has an energy efficiency rating of "A+", but the JVC LT-32C655 has a rating of "A".
Better user reviews
The average user review score of the JVC LT-40C550 is 67% based on 3 reviews, but the average rating of the JVC LT-32C655 is 60% (based on 1 review).
