Reasons For

2 Reasons For
Slightly larger display diagonal Edit
The VIZIO D58u-D3 has a display diagonal of 57.5", whereas the VIZIO M55-C2 is only a 55" TV (2.5" smaller). Read more

‘Display Diagonal’ is the measure of the size of the TV screen from top-left to bottom-right corner, 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. TVs with a bigger display diagonal allow you to make the most of HD content and are great for watching movies. 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.

39% cheaper to run
Over five years the VIZIO D58u-D3 is $66.96 cheaper to run than the VIZIO M55-C2. Read more
4 Reasons For
Wider horizontal viewing angle Edit
The VIZIO M55-C2 is a 178° horizontal viewing angle TV. That's 2° wider than the VIZIO D58u-D3 (178°). Read more

The horizontal viewing angle dictates the maximum angle at which the TV screen can be properly viewed.

A larger viewing angle means that the TV can be watched from many different parts of a room successfully. Conversely, a very small viewing angle means you would effectively have to sit directly in front of the TV to be able to view the screen successfully.

5W higher RMS rated power Edit
The VIZIO M55-C2 has an RMS rated power of 15W, but the VIZIO D58u-D3 is only a 10W RMS rated power TV (5W 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.

Thinner Edit
VIZIO M55-C2 is 63.75mm thick, but the VIZIO D58u-D3 is a 72.12mm thick TV (8.37mm 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.

Available from 1 shops
A greater number of retailers increases the chances of this TV remaining in stock and also increases the price competition amongst retailers for the product.

A bit narrower horizontal viewing angle Edit
The VIZIO D58u-D3 has a horizontal viewing angle of 176°, but the VIZIO M55-C2 is a 178° horizontal viewing angle TV (2° wider). Read more
