4 Reasons For
3D Edit
The Sony XBR-55X850 is a 3D TV, however the Sony XBR-55X810 is not 3D. Read more

‘3D’ describes whether the TV can display 3D movies and programmes. Requires compatible 3D glasses to properly function.

3D technology has become increasingly popular as the amount of 3D film and TV content has increased dramatically in recent years. All 3D TVs will also display regular 2D content and most will allow you to switch on and off the 3D effect on 3D content. 3D compatible TVs allow you to watch 3D content. For most TVs you will need to wear special glasses to see the 3D effect.

Faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Sony XBR-55X850 is a 960Hz motion interpolation frequency TV. That's 840Hz faster than the Sony XBR-55X810 (960Hz). Read more

The motion interpolation frequency is the frame rate which the TV is able to artificially create by inserting additional frames into the picture between the frames included in the original video source.

A faster motion interpolation frequency will result in smoother action scenes, less motion blur and a more life like image.

A lot thinner Edit
The Sony XBR-55X850 is a 59.94mm thick TV, whereas the Sony XBR-55X810 is an 80mm thick TV (20.06mm 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.
