Reasons For

4 Reasons For
5" larger display diagonal Edit
The Haier LE55K5000 has a display diagonal of 55", however the Hisense LTDN50K321 is only a 50" TV (5" 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.

1ms faster response time Edit
The Haier LE55K5000 is an 8.5ms response time TV. That's 1ms faster than the Hisense LTDN50K321 (9.5ms).
10mm thinner Edit

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.

Energy efficiency rating is higher
The Haier LE55K5000 has an energy efficiency rating of "A", but the Hisense LTDN50K321 has a rating of "A".

Faster high frequency rate Edit

A TV with a high frequency rate of 30Hz refreshes the image on the screen once every 30 times every second. 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.

6% lighter Edit
The Hisense LTDN50K321 is a 13.8kg heavy TV. That's 700g lighter than the Haier LE55K5000 (13.8kg). 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.

Better energy efficiency rating
The energy efficiency rating of the Hisense LTDN50K321 is "A", however the rating of the Haier LE55K5000 is "A".
