4 Reasons For
Faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Sony XBR-55X850 is a 960HzHz motion interpolation frequency TV. That's 840Hz faster than the Sony XBR-55X810 (960HzHz). Read more

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. Motion interpolation technology can sometimes create some unwanted side effects such glitches when the technology suddenly activates during an action scene. Most modern TVs will have an option to switch off the motion interpolation if it is not desired.

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

Two more RF ports Edit
The Sony XBR-55X850 is a three RF port TV, whereas the Sony XBR-55X810 only has one RF port. Read more

RF stands for Radio Frequency and an RF port is an older type of input connector for TVs which is most commonly use for connecting cable TV and satellite TV feeds directly to the TV.

Multiple RF ports will allow you to connect multiple RF feeds to the TV at the same time. For example, if the TV has a built in satellite TV decoder then you could connect 2 different satellite dishes to the TV.

A lot thinner Edit
The Sony XBR-55X850 is a 59.94mmmm thick TV, whereas the Sony XBR-55X810 is an 80mmmm thick TV (20.06mm 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.
