Reasons For

Sony XBR-55X810 Sony XBR-55X850 VIZIO E65-C3 VIZIO M55-C2
4 Reasons For
2% Wider Horizontal Viewing Angle
The Sony XBR-55X810 is a 178° horizontal viewing angle TV, and so do the Sony XBR-55X850 and the VIZIO M55-C2. That's 2° wider than the VIZIO E65-C3 (176°).

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.

25% Higher RMS Rated Power
The Sony XBR-55X810 has an RMS rated power of 20W (as do the Sony XBR-55X850 and the VIZIO E65-C3), however the VIZIO M55-C2 is only a 15W RMS rated power TV (5W 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.

User Reviews Are Significantly Better
The average user review score of the Sony XBR-55X810 is 100% based on 1 review, whereas the average rating of the Sony XBR-55X850 is 60% (based on 1 review).
Better Brand
Sony TVs have an average rating of 59.9%, but VIZIO has an average rating of 30%.
9 Reasons For
3D
The Sony XBR-55X850 is 3D, but the Sony XBR-55X810, the VIZIO E65-C3 and the VIZIO M55-C2 are not 3D.

‘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.

840Hz Faster Motion Interpolation Frequency
The Sony XBR-55X850 has a motion interpolation frequency of 960Hz, however the Sony XBR-55X810 is only a 120Hz motion interpolation frequency TV (840Hz slower).

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.

2° Wider Horizontal Viewing Angle
The Sony XBR-55X850 has a horizontal viewing angle of 178° (as do the Sony XBR-55X810 and the VIZIO M55-C2), however the VIZIO E65-C3 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.

25% Higher RMS Rated Power
The Sony XBR-55X850 is a 20W RMS rated power TV, and so do the Sony XBR-55X810 and the VIZIO E65-C3. That's 5W higher than the VIZIO M55-C2 (15W).

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.

Thinner
The Sony XBR-55X850 has a thickness of 43.2mm. That's 36.8mm thinner than the Sony XBR-55X810 (80mm), 31.73mm thinner than the VIZIO E65-C3 (74.93mm) and 20.55mm thinner than the VIZIO M55-C2 (63.75mm).

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.

Better Brand
Sony TVs have an average rating of 59.9%, but VIZIO has an average rating of 30%.
3 Reasons For
9.5" Larger Display Diagonal
The VIZIO E65-C3 is a 64.5" TV. That's 9.5" larger than the Sony XBR-55X810, the Sony XBR-55X850 and the VIZIO M55-C2 (55").

‘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.

50% Faster High Frequency Rate
The VIZIO E65-C3 has a high frequency rate of 240Hz. That's 120Hz faster than the VIZIO M55-C2 (120Hz).

The refresh rate (also known as the high frequency rate) is the number of times that the image on the screen is refreshed per second. It affects how smoothly motion on the screen appears.

Action will appear smoother on TVs with a higher frequency rate: a TV with a high frequency rate of 30Hz refreshes the image on the screen once every 30 times every second. However a TV with a high frequency rate of 60Hz would refresh the image on the screen 60 times every second which means that action scenes would appear smoother.

Key Features

Display Diagonal

‘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.

3D

‘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.

High Frequency Rate

The refresh rate (also known as the high frequency rate) is the number of times that the image on the screen is refreshed per second. It affects how smoothly motion on the screen appears.

Action will appear smoother on TVs with a higher frequency rate: a TV with a high frequency rate of 30Hz refreshes the image on the screen once every 30 times every second. However a TV with a high frequency rate of 60Hz would refresh the image on the screen 60 times every second which means that action scenes would appear smoother.

Thickness

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.

Energy Efficiency

Running Costs Over 5 Years
