Reasons For

4 Reasons For
24.1mm thinner Edit
LG 55UX340 is 55.9mm thick, but the Sony XBR-55X810 is an 80mm thick TV (24.1mm 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.

PC in (D-Sub) port Edit
The LG 55UX340 has a PC in (D-Sub) port, however the Sony XBR-55X810 does not. Read more

The socket (port) to receive input from a PC via a D-sub, which is a connector with a characteristic D-shaped metal shield.

Available from 3 shops
A greater number of stores increases the chances of this TV remaining in stock and also increases the price competition amongst retailers for the product.
64% cheaper to run
The LG 55UX340 only costs $88.36 to run over five years but the Sony XBR-55X810 costs $248.74 to run (182% more). Read more
4 Reasons For
0.36" larger display diagonal Edit
The Sony XBR-55X810 has a display diagonal of 55", whereas the LG 55UX340 is only a 54.64" TV (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.

50% higher RMS rated power Edit
The Sony XBR-55X810 is a 20W RMS rated power TV. That's 10W higher than the LG 55UX340 (20W). 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.

Wi-Fi Edit
The Sony XBR-55X810 supports Wi-Fi, whereas the LG 55UX340 does not support Wi-Fi. Read more

A Wifi (wireless LAN connection) on your TV means that you can connect your TV directly to your WiFi network.

Connecting your TV will be easier and you will not need any cables.

Ethernet port Edit
The Sony XBR-55X810 has an ethernet port, however the LG 55UX340 does not have an ethernet port. Read more

An ethernet port lets you connect the TV directly to your router with an ethernet cable.

An ethernet connection is more reliable than wifi and is useful if you do not have a wiki network or the wifi signal is weak. Depending on the speed of your wifi network and ethernet connection may be faster than wifi which means less buffering when streaming content to the TV.
