Reasons For

4 Reasons For
Higher RMS rated power Edit
The Sony XBR-55X810 is a 20W RMS rated power TV. That's 5W higher than the VIZIO M55-C2 (15W). 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.

One more composite video in Edit
The Sony XBR-55X810 is a two composite video in TV, whereas the VIZIO M55-C2 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.

Two more USB 2.0 ports quantitys Edit
The Sony XBR-55X810 is a three USB 2.0 ports quantity TV, whereas the VIZIO M55-C2 only has one USB 2.0 ports quantity. Read more

More USB ports will allow you to connect more USB devices to the TV simultaneously without needing to continuous plug in and unplug cables.

580g lighter Edit
The Sony XBR-55X810 is a 17.3kg heavy TV, whereas the VIZIO M55-C2 is a 17.9kg heavy TV (580g heavier). Read more
