Reasons For

3 Reasons For
Wi-Fi Edit
The Hisense 50H5GB supports Wi-Fi, however the Sceptre X505BV-FMDR does not support Wi-Fi. Read more

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.

Ethernet port Edit
The Hisense 50H5GB has an ethernet port, but the Sceptre X505BV-FMDR does not have an ethernet port. Read more

An ethernet port lets you connect the TV directly to your router with an ethernet cable.

An ethernet connection is more reliable than wifi and is useful if you do not have a wiki network or the wifi signal is weak. Depending on the speed of your wifi network and ethernet connection may be faster than wifi which means less buffering when streaming content to the TV.

A lot thinner Edit
The Hisense 50H5GB is a 78.74mm thick TV, whereas the Sceptre X505BV-FMDR is a 99mm thick TV (20.26mm 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.
