Reasons For

6 Reasons For
800Hz faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The LG 43UF6809 has a motion interpolation frequency of 1,000Hz, 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.

50% higher RMS rated power Edit
The LG 43UF6809 is a 40W RMS rated power TV. That's 20W higher than the Sony KD-49X8005 (20W). Read more

RMS rated power stands for Root Mean Square rated power and it is typically used to measure the power output of the audio element of the TV.

A higher RMS rated power means that the audio system on the TV is more powerful and will be able to play the audio at higher volumes. A higher RMS power may also result in better quality audio at normal volume levels.

Two RF ports Edit
The number of RF ports on the LG 43UF6809 is two, but the Sony KD-49X8005 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.

Vastly lower annual energy consumption Edit
The LG 43UF6809 has an annual energy consumption of 76kWh, however the Sony KD-49X8005 is a 129kWh annual energy consumption TV (53kWh 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.

43% cheaper to run
Over five years the LG 43UF6809 only costs £85.15 to run but the Sony KD-49X8005 costs £149.02 to run (75% more). Read more
Energy efficiency rating is better
The LG 43UF6809 has an energy efficiency rating of "A+", however the Sony KD-49X8005 has a rating of "A".
4 Reasons For
13% larger screen size Edit
The Sony KD-49X8005 has a screen size of 49", however the LG 43UF6809 is only a 43" TV (6" smaller). 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.

Two more USB 2.0 ports Edit
The Sony KD-49X8005 has three USB 2.0 ports, however the LG 43UF6809 only has one USB 2.0 port. 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 number of HDMI ports on the Sony KD-49X8005 is four, but the LG 43UF6809 only has two 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.

Bluetooth connection Edit
The Sony KD-49X8005 has a Bluetooth connection, whereas the LG 43UF6809 does not have a Bluetooth connection.
