Reasons For

1 Reason For
740Hz faster high frequency rate Edit
Hisense LTDN50K321 is 800Hz refresh rate, but the Samsung UE55J5500 is only a 60Hz refresh rate TV (740Hz 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.

4 Reasons For
5" larger display diagonal Edit
The Samsung UE55J5500 has a display diagonal of 55", whereas the Hisense LTDN50K321 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.

Thinner Edit
Samsung UE55J5500 is 67.8mm thick. That's 14.2mm thinner than the Hisense LTDN50K321 (67.8mm). 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.

DVI port Edit
The Samsung UE55J5500 has a DVI port, however the Hisense LTDN50K321 does not have a DVI port.
Energy efficiency rating is better
The Samsung UE55J5500 has an energy efficiency rating of "A+", however the Hisense LTDN50K321 has a rating of "A".

Reasons Against
