Reasons For

1 Reason For
Wider horizontal viewing angle Edit
The Sony XBR-55X810 is a 178° horizontal viewing angle TV. That's 2° wider than the VIZIO E65-C3 (176°). 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.

4 Reasons For
15% larger display diagonal Edit
The VIZIO E65-C3 is a 64.5" TV. That's 9.5" larger than the Sony XBR-55X810 (64.5"). 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.

Quite thinner Edit
The VIZIO E65-C3 is a 74.93mm thick TV, whereas the Sony XBR-55X810 is an 80mm thick TV (5.07mm 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.

$50 cheaper
The VIZIO E65-C3 costs $849.99, whereas the Sony XBR-55X810 is $899.95.
Available from 2 shops
The more retailers stock this TV, the greater competition amongst retailers to keep prices low.

Reasons Against

4 Reasons Against
9.5" smaller display diagonal Edit
The Sony XBR-55X810 is a 55" TV. That's 9.5" smaller than the VIZIO E65-C3 (64.5"). Read more

$50 more expensive

Less retailers
Only 1 retailer sell the Sony XBR-55X810, whereas 3 sellers sell the VIZIO E65-C3. Read more
Smaller numbers of retailers reduces the price competition amongst retailers for this TV and also reduces the chances of the product remaining in stock.
1 Reason Against
Narrower horizontal viewing angle Edit
The VIZIO E65-C3 is a 176° horizontal viewing angle TV. That's 2° narrower than the Sony XBR-55X810 (176°). Read more
