Reasons For

4 Reasons For
Higher RMS rated power Edit
The Samsung UE40K5510 is a 20W RMS rated power TV. That's 10W higher than the Sony KDL-40WD653 (10W). 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.

Three HDMI ports Edit
The number of HDMI ports on the Samsung UE40K5510 is three, but the Sony KDL-40WD653 only has two HDMI ports. Read more

The HDMI ports quantity is the number of ports that the TV has that will accept a HDMI cable. HDMI is the most common type of cable used to connect modern TVs, DVD players, games consoles etc.

A greater number of HDMI ports will allow you to permanently connect more devices to the TV and will reduce the need to reach around the back of the TV to unplug and plug in cables when switching between devices.

1.3 newer common interface plus (CI+) version Edit
