Reasons For

4 Reasons For
Two composite video ins Edit
The Sony XBR-55X810 is a two composite video in TV, whereas the VIZIO E65-C3 only has one composite video in. 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.

Three USB 2.0 ports quantitys Edit
The Sony XBR-55X810 is a three USB 2.0 ports quantity TV, whereas the VIZIO E65-C3 only has one USB 2.0 ports quantity. 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.

33% lighter Edit
The Sony XBR-55X810 is a 17.3kg heavy TV. That's 5.7kg lighter than the VIZIO E65-C3 (23kg). 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.

$110 cheaper
The Sony XBR-55X810 costs $110 less than the VIZIO E65-C3.
2 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

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.

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.
