Reasons For

4 Reasons For
One more composite video in port Edit
The number of composite video in ports on the Sony KD-65S8505 is two, but the Sony KD-65X8509 only has one composite video in port. Read more

A composite video port is mainly used for connecting older devices to the TV, such as older video cameras or video recorders. Composite video connections can only display images up to a resolutionsof 640 x 480 pixels so the quality of image displayed via a composite video connection will be quite low.

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.

4kWh lower annual energy consumption Edit
The Sony KD-65S8505 has an annual energy consumption of 203kWh, whereas the Sony KD-65X8507 and the Sony KD-65X8509 are both 207kWh annual energy consumption TVs (4kWh higher). 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.

Cheaper to run by £4.81
Over five years the Sony KD-65S8505 is £4.81 cheaper to run than the Sony KD-65X8507 and £4.81 cheaper to run than the Sony KD-65X8509. Read more
Energy efficiency rating is superior
The Sony KD-65S8505 has an energy efficiency rating of "A", whereas the Sony KD-65X8507 has a rating of "A" and the Sony KD-65X8509 has a rating of "A".
3 Reasons For
25% lighter Edit
The Sony KD-65X8507 has a weight of 24.1kg (as does the Sony KD-65X8509), however the Sony KD-65S8505 is a 30.1kg heavy TV (6kg heavier). 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.

8 shops are selling it
The more shops stock the product, the greater competition amongst shops to keep prices low.
Energy efficiency rating is higher
The Sony KD-65X8507 has an energy efficiency rating of "A", but the Sony KD-65S8505 has a rating of "A" and the Sony KD-65X8509 has a rating of "A".
5 Reasons For
200Hz faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Sony KD-65X8509 is a 1,000Hz motion interpolation frequency TV. That's 200Hz faster than the Sony KD-65S8505 (1,000Hz) and 100Hz faster than the Sony KD-65X8507 (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.
