Reasons For

4 Reasons For
2% wider horizontal viewing angle Edit
The Philips 55PFL6921 is a 178° horizontal viewing angle TV. That's 2° wider than the VIZIO D58u-D3 (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.

A lot higher RMS rated power Edit
The Philips 55PFL6921 has an RMS rated power of 20W, whereas the VIZIO D58u-D3 is only a 10W RMS rated power TV (10W lower). 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.

8.62mm thinner Edit
The Philips 55PFL6921 is a 63.5mm thick TV, whereas the VIZIO D58u-D3 is a 72.12mm thick TV (8.62mm 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 Philips 55PFL6921 has a PC in (D-Sub) port, but the VIZIO D58u-D3 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. Also known as a VGA Port.

A D-sub port is needed to connect your TV to older devices and computers that use a VGA connection - generally those made before 2000.

2 Reasons For
5% larger display diagonal Edit
The VIZIO D58u-D3 is a 57.5" TV. That's 2.5" larger than the Philips 55PFL6921 (57.5"). 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.

39% cheaper to run
The VIZIO D58u-D3 only costs $104.97 to run over five years but the Philips 55PFL6921 costs $172.07 to run (64% more). Read more
