Reasons For

4 Reasons For
3kWh lower annual energy consumption Edit
The Sony KD-55S8505 has an annual energy consumption of 157kWh, but the Sony KD-55X8507 is a 160kWh annual energy consumption TV (3kWh 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.

1 shops are selling it
The more shops stock the product, the greater competition amongst shops to keep prices low.
£4.41 cheaper to run
Over five years the Sony KD-55S8505 is £4.41 cheaper to run than the Sony KD-55X8507 and £4.41 cheaper to run than the Sony KD-55X8509. Read more
Energy efficiency rating is higher
The Sony KD-55S8505 has an energy efficiency rating of "A", but the Sony KD-55X8507 has a rating of "A" and the Sony KD-55X8509 has a rating of "A".
3 Reasons For
Hugely thinner Edit
Sony KD-55X8507 is 60mm thick (as does the Sony KD-55X8509), but the Sony KD-55S8505 is a 99mm thick TV (39mm thicker). Read more

The depth of the TV is the thickness of the TV measured from the back of the TV to the front of the TV. Curved TVs will have quite a big depth as this dimension is measured from the back of the centre of the screen to the front of the edges of the screen.

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.

3kg lighter Edit
The Sony KD-55X8507 is a 19.9kg heavy TV, and so does the Sony KD-55X8509. That's 3kg lighter than the Sony KD-55S8505 (19.9kg). 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.

Better energy efficiency rating
The energy efficiency rating of the Sony KD-55X8507 is "A", however the rating of the Sony KD-55S8505 is "A" and the rating of the Sony KD-55X8509 is "A".
8 Reasons For
20% faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Sony KD-55X8509 is a 1,000Hz motion interpolation frequency TV. That's 200Hz faster than the Sony KD-55S8505 (1,000Hz) and 100Hz faster than the Sony KD-55X8507 (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.

Two composite video in ports Edit
The number of composite video in ports on the Sony KD-55X8509 is two, but the Sony KD-55X8507 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.

Vastly thinner Edit
The Sony KD-55X8509 has a thickness of 60mm (as does the Sony KD-55X8507), however the Sony KD-55S8505 is a 99mm thick TV (39mm thicker). Read more

The depth of the TV is the thickness of the TV measured from the back of the TV to the front of the TV. Curved TVs will have quite a big depth as this dimension is measured from the back of the centre of the screen to the front of the edges of the screen.

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.

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.
