Reasons For

2 Reasons For
Hugely faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Sony KD-55S8505 has a motion interpolation frequency of 800Hz, but the Sony KD-55XD7005 is only a 200Hz motion interpolation frequency TV (600Hz slower) and the Sony KD-55XD8005 is only a 400Hz 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.
