Reasons For

JVC LT-55C550 Sony KDL-55W755
2 Reasons For
4W Higher RMS Rated Power
The JVC LT-55C550 has an RMS rated power of 24W, whereas the Sony KDL-55W755 is only a 20W RMS rated power TV (4W 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.

£454 Cheaper
The JVC LT-55C550 costs £335.00, whereas the Sony KDL-55W755 is £789.00.
5 Reasons For
Faster Motion Interpolation Frequency
The Sony KDL-55W755 is an 800Hz motion interpolation frequency TV. That's 750Hz faster than the JVC LT-55C550 (50Hz).

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.

Read more Read less | Edit
Wi-Fi
The Sony KDL-55W755 supports Wi-Fi, but the JVC LT-55C550 does not support Wi-Fi.

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.
