Faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Sony KD-55X8509 is a 1,000Hz motion interpolation frequency TV. That's 100Hz faster than the Sony KD-55X8507 (1,000Hz). Read more

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. Motion interpolation technology can sometimes create some unwanted side effects such glitches when the technology suddenly activates during an action scene. Most modern TVs will have an option to switch off the motion interpolation if it is not desired.

A faster motion interpolation frequency will result in smoother action scenes, less motion blur and a more life like image.

Two composite video in ports Edit
The number of composite video in ports on the Sony KD-55X8509 is two, but the Sony KD-55X8507 only has one composite video in port. Read more

Multiple composite video ports will allow you to connect more than one older video device. However it is very unlikely that you will use the composite video port at all.
