Reasons For

1 Reason For
One more composite video in port Edit
The number of composite video in ports on the Sony KD-49X8005 is two, but the Sony KDL-50W809 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.

5 Reasons For
Larger screen size Edit
The Sony KDL-50W808 is a 50" TV, and so does the Sony KDL-50W809. That's 1" larger than the Sony KD-49X8005 (50"). Read more

The display diagonal of a TV is the most common measure of screen size and is the distance from the top left to the bottom right of the visible part of a TV screen excluding any frame or border. One of the most important considerations when choosing the right screen size for your TV is the typical distance from which you will be viewing the screen. A good rule of thumb is to multiply the display diagonal by 2.5 to determine the viewing distance. So a 40 inch TV is best viewed from 100 inches away, which is equivalent to 8.3 feet or 2.54m. For home cinema setups and a truly immersive experience this ratio can be reduced to 1.2. This will give a screen size that fills 40 degrees of the viewer's field of vision. So if you viewing from a distance of 6ft (72 inches) you would need a TV display diagonal of 60 inches.

TVs with a bigger display diagonal allow you to make the most of HD content and are great for watching movies.

Faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Sony KDL-50W808 is a 1,000Hz motion interpolation frequency TV, and so does the Sony KDL-50W809. That's 800Hz faster than the Sony KD-49X8005 (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.

29% lower annual energy consumption Edit
The Sony KDL-50W808 is a 100kWh annual energy consumption TV, and so does the Sony KDL-50W809. That's 29kWh lower than the Sony KD-49X8005 (100kWh). 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.

£30.61 cheaper to run
The Sony KDL-50W808 is £30.61 cheaper to run than the Sony KD-49X8005 over five years. Read more
Higher energy efficiency rating
The energy efficiency rating of the Sony KDL-50W808 is "A+", but the rating of the Sony KD-49X8005 is "A" and the rating of the Sony KDL-50W809 is "A+".
7 Reasons For
A little larger screen size Edit
The Sony KDL-50W809 has a screen size of 50" (as does the Sony KDL-50W808), whereas the Sony KD-49X8005 is only a 49" TV (1" smaller). Read more

Hugely faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Sony KDL-50W809 has a motion interpolation frequency of 1,000Hz (as does the Sony KDL-50W808), but the Sony KD-49X8005 is only a 200Hz motion interpolation frequency TV (800Hz 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.
