Reasons For

3 Reasons For

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.

Cheaper by £250
The LG 49UF695 is £250 cheaper than the Sony KD-49X8307.
Energy efficiency rating is superior
The LG 49UF695 has an energy efficiency rating of "A", whereas the Sony KD-49X8307 has a rating of "A".
9 Reasons For
One more composite video in port Edit
The Sony KD-49X8307 is a two composite video in port TV, whereas the LG 49UF695 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.

One more USB 2.0 port Edit
The Sony KD-49X8307 is a three USB 2.0 port TV, whereas the LG 49UF695 only has two USB 2.0 ports. Read more

USB ports are useful for displaying on your TV photos / videos or playing music that is stored on USB key drives. The USB port can also be used for charging devices from your TV (as long as it's switched on), and for installing software updates on the TV.

More USB ports will allow you to connect more USB devices to the TV simultaneously without needing to continuous plug in and unplug cables.

Four HDMI ports Edit
The Sony KD-49X8307 has four HDMI ports, however the LG 49UF695 only has three HDMI ports. Read more

The HDMI ports quantity is the number of ports that the TV has that will accept a HDMI cable. HDMI is the most common type of cable used to connect modern TVs, DVD players, games consoles etc.

A greater number of HDMI ports will allow you to permanently connect more devices to the TV and will reduce the need to reach around the back of the TV to unplug and plug in cables when switching between devices.

A little lower annual energy consumption Edit
The Sony KD-49X8307 has an annual energy consumption of 117kWh, however the LG 49UF695 is a 126kWh annual energy consumption TV (9kWh 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.

3.1kg lighter Edit
The Sony KD-49X8307 is a 14.4kg heavy TV, whereas the LG 49UF695 is a 17.5kg heavy TV (3.1kg 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.

6 shops are selling it
A greater number of sellers increases the chances of the product remaining in stock and also increases the price competition amongst retailers for this TV.
1% cheaper to run
Over five years the Sony KD-49X8307 only costs £137.64 to run but the LG 49UF695 costs £139.64 to run (1% more). Read more
Better selling
