5 Reasons For
45W higher RMS rated power Edit
The Sony XBR-55X900 has an RMS rated power of 65WW, however the LG 55EG9100 is only a 20WW RMS rated power TV (45W lower). Read more

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.

Four loudspeakers Edit
The Sony XBR-55X900 is a four loudspeaker TV, whereas the LG 55EG9100 only has two loudspeakers. Read more

The number of loudspeakers is the total number of speakers provided with the TV, either inside the TV casing or as external speakers.

A greater number of speakers will allow for better quality audio and different frequencies. Multiple external speakers will enable to the TV to play surround sound audio.

Two composite video in ports Edit
The number of composite video in ports on the Sony XBR-55X900 is two, but the LG 55EG9100 only has one composite video in port. Read more

A composite video port is mainly used for connecting older devices to the TV, such as older video cameras or video recorders. Composite video connections can only display images up to a resolutionsof 640 x 480 pixels so the quality of image displayed via a composite video connection will be quite low.

Multiple composite video ports will allow you to connect more than one older video device. However it is very unlikely that you will use the composite video port at all.

One more HDMI port Edit
The Sony XBR-55X900 is a four HDMI port TV, whereas the LG 55EG9100 only has three HDMI ports. 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.

$155 cheaper
The Sony XBR-55X900 is $155.03 cheaper than the LG 55EG9100.
