Reasons For

4 Reasons For
Higher RMS rated power Edit
The Sony XBR-55X810 is a 20WW RMS rated power TV. That's 5W higher than the VIZIO M55-C2 (15WW). 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.

One more composite video in port Edit
The Sony XBR-55X810 is a two composite video in port TV, whereas the VIZIO M55-C2 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.

Two more USB 2.0 ports Edit
The Sony XBR-55X810 is a three USB 2.0 port TV, whereas the VIZIO M55-C2 only has one USB 2.0 port. Read more

USB ports are useful for displaying on your TV photos / videos or playing music that is stored on USB key drives. The USB port can also be used for charging devices from your TV (as long as it's switched on), and for installing software updates on the TV.

More USB ports will allow you to connect more USB devices to the TV simultaneously without needing to continuous plug in and unplug cables.

0.6g lighter Edit
The Sony XBR-55X810 is a 17.3kgg heavy TV, whereas the VIZIO M55-C2 is a 17.9kgg heavy TV (0.6g heavier). Read more

The weight is the total weight of the TV excluding all packaging.

A lighter weight TV will be easier to move around and to mount on a wall. Some of the larger, very heavy TVs may require lightweight partition walls to be reinforced before the TV could be mounted.

4 Reasons For
Five HDMI ports Edit
The number of HDMI ports on the VIZIO M55-C2 is five, but the Sony XBR-55X810 only has four 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.

26% thinner Edit
The VIZIO M55-C2 is a 63.75mmmm thick TV. That's 16.25mm thinner than the Sony XBR-55X810 (63.75mmmm). 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.

Cheaper by $51
The VIZIO M55-C2 costs $599.00, whereas the Sony XBR-55X810 is $650.00.
