Reasons For

9 Reasons For
One more RF port Edit
The Samsung UE65JU7000 has two RF ports, however the Sony KD-65X8509 only has one RF port. Read more

RF stands for Radio Frequency and an RF port is an older type of input connector for TVs which is most commonly use for connecting cable TV and satellite TV feeds directly to the TV.

Multiple RF ports will allow you to connect multiple RF feeds to the TV at the same time. For example, if the TV has a built in satellite TV decoder then you could connect 2 different satellite dishes to the TV.

30% lower annual energy consumption Edit
The Samsung UE65JU7000 is a 160kWh annual energy consumption TV. That's 47kWh lower than the Sony KD-65X8509 (207kWh). Read more

The annual energy consumption is the total amount of energy that the TV will use over the course of a whole year, given typical usage levels.

A lower annual energy consumption means that it will cost less each year for you to run your TV.

14% thinner Edit
The Samsung UE65JU7000 has a thickness of 68.8mm, however the Sony KD-65X8509 is a 78mm thick TV (9.2mm thicker). 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.

1% lighter Edit
Samsung UE65JU7000 is 23.9kg heavy. That's 200g lighter than the Sony KD-65X8509 (24.1kg). Read more

The weight is the total weight of the TV excluding all packaging.

A lighter weight TV will be easier to move around and to mount on a wall. Some of the larger, very heavy TVs may require lightweight partition walls to be reinforced before the TV could be mounted.
