Reasons For

LG OLED55B6 Sony XBR55X930E
4 Reasons For
OLED/QLED Technology
The LG OLED55B6 features OLED/QLED technology, whereas the Sony XBR55X930E does not.

OLED and QLED TVs use organic material that creates light when electricity is passed through it. This means that they do not require a back light, unlike standard LED TVs.

OLED and QLED TVs have much higher contrast than LED TVs as they have no back light. They also have a fast response rate, rich colours and a wide viewing angle. They are also cheaper to run.

Read more Read less | Edit
Energy Star Certified
The LG OLED55B6 is an Energy Star certified TV, but the Sony XBR55X930E is not Energy Star certified.

'Energy Star' is an international standard for energy efficient electrical products, from TVs to washing machines to kettles. Only TVs that use 30% less energy than the average will be certified by Energy Star.

An Energy Star certified TV will use substantially less energy than usual, saving you money and helping the environment by consuming less energy every day.

Read more Read less | Edit
$6 Cheaper
The LG OLED55B6 is $6.03 cheaper than the Sony XBR55X930E.
Better Brand
LG TVs have an average rating of 86.9%, but Sony has an average rating of 80%.
5 Reasons For
10W Higher RMS Rated Power
The Sony XBR55X930E has an RMS rated power of 50W, whereas the LG OLED55B6 is only a 40W RMS rated power TV (10W lower).

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.

Read more Read less | Edit
8.6mm Thinner
The Sony XBR55X930E is a 40mm thick TV, whereas the LG OLED55B6 is a 48.6mm thick TV (8.6mm thicker).

The thickness of a 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.
