5 Reasons For
Larger display diagonal Edit
The Seiki SE40FO04 is a 40" TV. That's 8" larger than the JVC LT-32C650 (40"). 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.

20.32cm larger visible diagonal screen size Edit
The Seiki SE40FO04 has a visible diagonal screen size of 101.6cm, whereas the JVC LT-32C650 is only an 81.28cm visible diagonal screen size TV (20.32cm smaller).
One more HDMI ports quantity Edit
The Seiki SE40FO04 is a three HDMI ports quantity TV, whereas the JVC LT-32C650 only has two HDMI ports quantitys. 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.

Quite thinner Edit
The Seiki SE40FO04 has a depth of 92mm, however the JVC LT-32C650 is a 97mm thick TV (5mm thicker). 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.

Superior energy efficiency rating
The energy efficiency rating of the Seiki SE40FO04 is "A", whereas the rating of the JVC LT-32C650 is "A".
