Reasons For

8 Reasons For
Faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Samsung UE55JU6510 has a motion interpolation frequency of 1,100Hz, but the Sony KD-55X8507 is only a 900Hz motion interpolation frequency TV (200Hz slower). 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 RF ports Edit
The number of RF ports on the Samsung UE55JU6510 is two, but the Sony KD-55X8507 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.
