Reasons For

JVC LT-55C550 Philips 50PUT6400
3 Reasons For
10% Larger Display Diagonal
The JVC LT-55C550 is a 55" TV. That's 5" larger than the Philips 50PUT6400 (50").

‘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.

4W Higher RMS Rated Power
The JVC LT-55C550 has an RMS rated power of 24W, whereas the Philips 50PUT6400 is only a 20W RMS rated power TV (4W lower).

RMS rated power stands for Root Mean Square rated power and it is typically used to measure the power output of the audio element of the TV.

A higher RMS rated power means that the audio system on the TV is more powerful and will be able to play the audio at higher volumes. A higher RMS power may also result in better quality audio at normal volume levels.

More Shops Are Selling it
The more stores stock this TV, the greater competition amongst stores to keep prices low.
4 Reasons For
650Hz Faster Motion Interpolation Frequency
The Philips 50PUT6400 has a motion interpolation frequency of 700Hz, but the JVC LT-55C550 is only a 50Hz motion interpolation frequency TV (650Hz slower).

The motion interpolation frequency is the frame rate which the TV is able to artificially create by inserting additional frames into the picture between the frames included in the original video source.

A faster motion interpolation frequency will result in smoother action scenes, less motion blur and a more life like image.

Read more Read less | Edit
Wi-Fi
The Philips 50PUT6400 supports Wi-Fi, whereas the JVC LT-55C550 does not support Wi-Fi.

A Wifi (wireless LAN connection) on your TV means that you can connect your TV directly to your WiFi network.

A wifi connection means that connecting your TV to the net will be easier and can be done without cables.
