Reasons For

6 Reasons For
11% brighter display brightness Edit
The JVC LT-40C550 has a display brightness of 280 cd/m², however the Seiki SE40FO04 is only a 250 cd/m² display brightness TV (30 cd/m² dimmer).
A lot lower annual energy consumption Edit
The JVC LT-40C550 has an annual energy consumption of 66kWh, whereas the Seiki SE40FO04 is an 86kWh annual energy consumption TV (20kWh higher). Read more

The annual energy consumption is the total amount of energy that the TV will use over the course of a whole year, given typical usage levels.

A lower annual energy consumption means that it will cost less each year for you to run your TV.

Thinner Edit
The JVC LT-40C550 has a thickness of 68.7mm. That's 23.3mm thinner than the Seiki SE40FO04 (92mm). 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.

Lighter Edit
JVC LT-40C550 is 6.4kg heavy, but the Seiki SE40FO04 is a 7.5kg heavy TV (1.1kg heavier). Read more

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

1 Reason For
17% faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Seiki SE40FO04 has a motion interpolation frequency of 60Hz, however the JVC LT-40C550 is only a 50Hz motion interpolation frequency TV (10Hz 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. Most modern TVs will have an option to switch off the motion interpolation if it is not desired.

A faster motion interpolation frequency will result in smoother action scenes, less motion blur and a more life like image.
