Reasons For

4 Reasons For
45% faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Panasonic TX-65DX750 is a 1,800Hz motion interpolation frequency TV. That's 800Hz faster than the Sony KD-65X8509 (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.

17mm thinner Edit
Panasonic TX-65DX750 is 61mm thick, but the Sony KD-65X8509 is a 78mm thick TV (17mm 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.
