Reasons For

5 Reasons For
One more RF port Edit
The Samsung UE32J6250 is a two RF port TV, whereas the Sony KD-43X8309 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.

73% lower annual energy consumption Edit
The Samsung UE32J6250 is a 58kWh annual energy consumption TV. That's 42kWh lower than the Sony KD-43X8309 (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.

2x lighter Edit
The Samsung UE32J6250 has a weight of 5.1kg. That's 6.7kg lighter than the Sony KD-43X8309 (11.8kg). 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.

£49.28 cheaper to run
The Samsung UE32J6250 is £49.28 cheaper to run than the Sony KD-43X8309 over five years. Read more
Higher energy efficiency rating
The energy efficiency rating of the Samsung UE32J6250 is "A", but the rating of the Sony KD-43X8309 is "A".
5 Reasons For
11" larger screen size Edit
The Sony KD-43X8309 has a screen size of 43", whereas the Samsung UE32J6250 is only a 32" TV (11" 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.

400Hz faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Sony KD-43X8309 has a motion interpolation frequency of 1,000Hz, but the Samsung UE32J6250 is only a 600Hz motion interpolation frequency TV (400Hz 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.

One more composite video in port Edit
The Sony KD-43X8309 is a two composite video in port TV, whereas the Samsung UE32J6250 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.

Thinner Edit
Sony KD-43X8309 is 60mm thick. That's 2.9mm thinner than the Samsung UE32J6250 (60mm). 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.

Energy efficiency rating is better
The Sony KD-43X8309 has an energy efficiency rating of "A", however the Samsung UE32J6250 has a rating of "A".
