One more RF port Edit
The number of RF ports on the Samsung UE49KU6470 is two, but the Sony KD-49X8307 only has one RF port. Read more

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.

PC in port Edit
The Samsung UE49KU6470 has a PC in port, however the Sony KD-49X8307 does not. Read more

The socket (port) to receive input from a PC via a D-sub, which is a connector with a characteristic D-shaped metal shield.

4.8mm thinner Edit
Samsung UE49KU6470 is 55.2mm thick, but the Sony KD-49X8307 is a 60mm thick TV (4.8mm 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.

7 Reasons For
One more composite video in port Edit
The Sony KD-49X8307 is a two composite video in port TV, whereas the Samsung UE49KU6470 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.

One more USB 2.0 port Edit
The Sony KD-49X8307 is a three USB 2.0 port TV, whereas the Samsung UE49KU6470 only has two USB 2.0 ports. Read more

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 Sony KD-49X8307 has four HDMI ports, however the Samsung UE49KU6470 only has three HDMI ports. Read more

Slightly lower annual energy consumption Edit
The Sony KD-49X8307 has an annual energy consumption of 117kWh, however the Samsung UE49KU6470 is a 123kWh annual energy consumption TV (6kWh higher). Read more

A lower annual energy consumption means that it will cost less each year for you to run your TV.

14 shops are selling it
