Sceptre U550CV-UMR Reviews and Rating | 4K Ultra HD MEMC 120

The Sceptre U550CV-UMR is quite similar to the previous model, with some important and some not so essential differences. The biggest one, of course, is that this model is 55 inches instead of 49. That may not seem like a lot, but that measurement refers to diagonal length only. Regarding the actual surface area, this screen is about 30% larger. That makes a difference depending on where you plan to store this screen, and about pixel density.

Pixel density essentially refers to how large the pixels will be. You always want to have smaller pixels, but more of them. This creates images that are as crystal clear as possible. 1080p is roughly 2 million pixels, and 4K is 8 million. So on a 55-inch screen, 1080p pixels will look about four times bigger than the 4K resolution on the same screen size. Bigger pixels always lead to a blurrier image.

For reference, imagine zooming in on a computer jpeg image to the point where you can see the tiny squares that make them up. Or you can shift your face closer to your computer screen right now. The lines that divide both horizontally and vertically make up the pixels, and it is an excellent television’s job to make those lines seem invisible.

4K has a lot more pixels than 1080p, and larger screens that are in the 50 inch + range are generally viewed from a couple of feet or meters away due to their size. This is why this range is considered the sweet spot for 4K.

So you must be thinking: is 55 inches better than 49 inches for 4K? Our answer is probably. Some TV nuts out there are picky about their pixel density, even at ultra-HD. But we think screen size is just as important too, and an extra 30% surface area is nothing to scoff at. The Sceptre U550CV-URM even comes with four HDMI ports instead of only three. It may be much more substantial, weighing over 40 pounds, but the two base legs were cleverly designed. They are widely angled facing towards the outside of the frame and are longer than most legs, so it’s sturdier than it looks.
