Reasons For

Hisense LTDN50K321 Samsung UE55J5500
2 Reasons For
740Hz Faster High Frequency Rate
Hisense LTDN50K321 is 800Hz refresh rate, but the Samsung UE55J5500 is only a 60Hz refresh rate TV (740Hz slower).

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.

Better for Watching Sport
The Hisense LTDN50K321 is better for watching sport than the Samsung UE55J5500.
When ranking TVs for sport, we’ve concentrated primarily on the most important attributes. First off, we concentrate on the ‘motion interpolation frequency’. This is important for fast-moving spots, since it reduces the amount of blurring on screen. We also take the size of the screen into account - sports matches are far more immersive when viewed on a giant screen! Finally, we look at display brightness and display resolution, so that the games always appear as fully-detailed and bright.

7 Reasons For
5" Larger Display Diagonal
The Samsung UE55J5500 has a display diagonal of 55", whereas the Hisense LTDN50K321 is only a 50" TV (5" smaller).

‘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.

Read more Read less | Edit
Thinner
Samsung UE55J5500 is 67.8mm thick. That's 14.2mm thinner than the Hisense LTDN50K321 (82mm).

The thickness of a 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
The Samsung UE55J5500 has a DVI port, however the Hisense LTDN50K321 does not have a DVI port.
Edit
83% Cheaper to Run Over Five Years
Over five years the Samsung UE55J5500 only costs £105 to run but the Hisense LTDN50K321 costs £627 to run (494% more).

Energy Efficiency Rating is Better
The Samsung UE55J5500 has an energy efficiency rating of "A+", however the Hisense LTDN50K321 has a rating of "A".
Better Brand
Samsung TVs have an average rating of 90.7%, whereas Hisense has an average rating of 84.7%.
Better for Watching Films
The Samsung UE55J5500 is better for watching films than the Hisense LTDN50K321.
When ranking TVs for their suitability to display films, we’ve concentrated on several key attributes. These include contrast ratio and local dimming, which allow the dark colours on the screen to look deeper and richer - helpful for nighttime scenes. Also the screen resolution plays a part - 4K and higher resolutions mean that the image will be clearer and more detailed. Finally the size of the screen is also important - explosions and big dramatic reveals are so much more effective when you don’t have to squint to see the screen!

Running Costs Over 5 Years

TV running costs calculated based on an average of 5 hours of use per day. The running cost comprises the electricity cost when using the TV and the electricity standby cost. Compare all energy saving TVs.

Environmental Impact

We have calculated the amount of CO2 that will be generated by running each of these TVs for 5 years. We have then converted that into the number of tree seedlings that you would need to plant and grow for 10 years in order to offset that amount of CO2.
