Reasons For

Sharp N7000U VIZIO D50u-D1
5 Reasons For
17% Larger Display Diagonal
The Sharp N7000U has a display diagonal of 59.5", however the VIZIO D50u-D1 is only a 49.5" TV (10" smaller).

‘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.

Read more Read less | Edit
Moderately Wider Horizontal Viewing Angle
The Sharp N7000U has a horizontal viewing angle of 178°, whereas the VIZIO D50u-D1 is only a 176° horizontal viewing angle TV (2° narrower).

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.

Read more Read less | Edit
Higher RMS Rated Power
The Sharp N7000U is a 20W RMS rated power TV. That's 10W higher than the VIZIO D50u-D1 (10W).

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
Wi-Fi
The Sharp N7000U supports Wi-Fi, however the VIZIO D50u-D1 does not.

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

A wifi connection means that connecting your TV to the net will be easier and can be done without cables.

Read more Read less | Edit
1% Thinner
The Sharp N7000U is a 63.5mm thick TV. That's 0.51000000000001mm thinner than the VIZIO D50u-D1 (64.01mm).

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.
