Reasons For

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

‘Display Diagonal’ is the measure of the size of the TV screen from top-left to bottom-right corner, 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. TVs with a bigger display diagonal allow you to make the most of HD content and are great for watching movies. 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.

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

The refresh rate (also known as the high frequency rate) is the number of times that the image on the screen is refreshed per second. It affects how smoothly motion on the screen appears.

Action will appear smoother on TVs with a higher frequency rate: a TV with a high frequency rate of 30Hz refreshes the image on the screen once every 30 times every second. However 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.

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). Read more

'Display Brightness' is a measure of how bright the screen on the TV is.

A brighter display means the screen will have a greater capacity for brightness. This can be useful in combating glare from the sun in very bright rooms, or for making the screen visible from further away.

2 Reasons For
Ethernet port Edit
The Seiki SE50FO04 has an ethernet port, whereas the NEC MultiSync E554 does not. Read more

An ethernet port lets you connect the TV directly to your router with an ethernet cable.

An ethernet connection is more reliable than wifi and is useful if you do not have a wiki network or the wifi signal is weak. Depending on the speed of your wifi network and ethernet connection may be faster than wifi which means less buffering when streaming content to the TV.

Cheaper to run by £87.97
The Seiki SE50FO04 only costs £110.56 to run over five years however the NEC MultiSync E554 costs £198.53 to run (80% more). Read more
