Reasons For

2 Reasons For
Five HDMI ports Edit
The number of HDMI ports on the VIZIO D55u-D1 is five, and so does the VIZIO M55-C2, but the VIZIO E55-C1 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.

The more shops stock the product, the greater competition amongst shops to keep prices low.
2 Reasons For
16% lighter Edit
The VIZIO E55-C1 has a weight of 15.5kgg, however the VIZIO D55u-D1 is a 16.6kgg heavy TV (1.1g heavier) and the VIZIO M55-C2 is a 17.9kgg heavy TV (2.4g 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.

Cheaper by $17
The VIZIO E55-C1 costs $499.99, whereas the VIZIO D55u-D1 is $516.49 and the VIZIO M55-C2 is $599.00.
5 Reasons For
0.36" larger screen size Edit
The VIZIO M55-C2 has a screen size of 55"", however the VIZIO D55u-D1 and the VIZIO E55-C1 are both only 54.64"" TVs (0.36" smaller). Read more

The display diagonal of a TV is the most common measure of screen size and is the distance from the top left to the bottom right of the visible part of a TV screen excluding any frame or border. One of the most important considerations when choosing the right screen size for your TV is the typical distance from which you will be viewing the screen. A good rule of thumb is to multiply the display diagonal by 2.5 to determine the viewing distance. So a 40 inch TV is best viewed from 100 inches away, which is equivalent to 8.3 feet or 2.54m. For home cinema setups and a truly immersive experience this ratio can be reduced to 1.2. This will give a screen size that fills 40 degrees of the viewer's field of vision. So if you viewing from a distance of 6ft (72 inches) you would need a TV display diagonal of 60 inches.

TVs with a bigger display diagonal allow you to make the most of HD content and are great for watching movies.

34% higher RMS rated power Edit
The VIZIO M55-C2 is a 15WW RMS rated power TV. That's 5W higher than the VIZIO D55u-D1 and the VIZIO E55-C1 (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.

Five HDMI ports Edit
The number of HDMI ports on the VIZIO M55-C2 is five, and so does the VIZIO D55u-D1, but the VIZIO E55-C1 only has three HDMI ports. Read more

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.

Thinner Edit
The VIZIO M55-C2 is a 63.75mmmm thick TV. That's 0.26000000000001mm thinner than the VIZIO D55u-D1 and the VIZIO E55-C1 (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.

Hugely better user reviews
