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.

Energy efficiency rating is higher
The Hisense LTDN55K220 has an energy efficiency rating of "A", but the JVC LT-55C550 has a rating of "A" and the Sony KDL-60NX720 has a rating of "A".
2 Reasons For
7% cheaper to run
The JVC LT-55C550 only costs £171.46 to run over five years but the Sony KDL-60NX720 costs £184.50 to run (8% more). Read more
Better energy efficiency rating
The energy efficiency rating of the JVC LT-55C550 is "A", however the rating of the Hisense LTDN55K220 is "A" and the rating of the Sony KDL-60NX720 is "A".
7 Reasons For
5" larger display diagonal Edit
The Sony KDL-60NX720 has a display diagonal of 60", but the Hisense LTDN55K220 and the JVC LT-55C550 are both only 55" TVs (5" smaller). 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.

50% higher RMS rated power Edit
The Sony KDL-60NX720 is a 40W RMS rated power TV. That's 20W higher than the Hisense LTDN55K220 (40W) and 16W higher than the JVC LT-55C550 (40W). 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.

Two more loudspeakers Edit
The Sony KDL-60NX720 is a four loudspeaker TV, whereas the Hisense LTDN55K220 only has two loudspeakers. Read more

We do not know the number of loudspeakers on the JVC LT-55C550. It is possible that it does not have any loudspeakers.

The number of loudspeakers is the total number of speakers provided with the TV, either inside the TV casing or as external speakers.

A greater number of speakers will allow for better quality audio and different frequencies. Multiple external speakers will enable to the TV to play surround sound audio.

Wi-Fi Edit
The Sony KDL-60NX720 supports Wi-Fi, and so does the Hisense LTDN55K220, but the JVC LT-55C550 does not support Wi-Fi. Read more

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.

Two times thinner Edit
The Sony KDL-60NX720 has a depth of 33mm. That's 50mm thinner than the Hisense LTDN55K220 (33mm). 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 Sony KDL-60NX720 has a PC in (D-Sub) port, whereas the Hisense LTDN55K220 does not have a PC in (D-Sub) port. 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.

Energy efficiency rating is superior
The Sony KDL-60NX720 has an energy efficiency rating of "A", whereas the Hisense LTDN55K220 has a rating of "A" and the JVC LT-55C550 has a rating of "A".
