Reasons For

4 Reasons For
1,000Hz faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Sony KD-55X9305 has a motion interpolation frequency of 1,200Hz, however the Sony KD-55XD7005 is only a 200Hz motion interpolation frequency TV (1,000Hz 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.

78% higher RMS rated power Edit
The Sony KD-55X9305 is a 90W RMS rated power TV. That's 70W higher than the Sony KD-55XD7005 (). Read more

RMS rated power stands for Root Mean Square rated power and it is typically used to measure the power output of the audio element of the TV.

A higher RMS rated power means that the audio system on the TV is more powerful and will be able to play the audio at higher volumes. A higher RMS power may also result in better quality audio at normal volume levels.

Four more loudspeakers Edit
The Sony KD-55X9305 is a six loudspeaker TV, whereas the Sony KD-55XD7005 only has two loudspeakers. Read more

We do not know the number of loudspeakers on the Sony KD-55XD8577. It is possible that it does not have any loudspeakers.

The number of loudspeakers is the total number of speakers provided with the TV, either inside the TV casing or as external speakers.

A greater number of speakers will allow for better quality audio and different frequencies. Multiple external speakers will enable to the TV to play surround sound audio.

One more composite video in port Edit
The number of composite video in ports on the Sony KD-55X9305 is two, but the Sony KD-55XD7005 only has one composite video in port. Read more

We do not know the number of composite video in ports on the Sony KD-55XD8577. It is possible that it does not have any composite video in ports.

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.

7 Reasons For
A lot lower annual energy consumption Edit
The Sony KD-55XD7005 has an annual energy consumption of 155kWh, but the Sony KD-55X9305 is a 230kWh annual energy consumption TV (75kWh 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.

12mm thinner Edit
The Sony KD-55XD7005 is a 78mm thick TV. That's 12mm thinner than the Sony KD-55X9305 (). 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.

2x lighter Edit
The Sony KD-55XD7005 has a weight of 16.9kg, however the Sony KD-55X9305 is a 37.3kg heavy TV (20.4kg heavier). 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.

Cheaper by £176
The Sony KD-55XD7005 costs £699.00, whereas the Sony KD-55X9305 is £999.00 and the Sony KD-55XD8577 is £874.99.
24 shops are selling it
The more sellers stock the product, the greater competition amongst sellers to keep prices low.
£86.53 cheaper to run
Over five years the Sony KD-55XD7005 only costs £182.51 to run whereas the Sony KD-55X9305 costs £269.04 to run (47% more). Read more
Energy efficiency rating is higher
The Sony KD-55XD7005 has an energy efficiency rating of "A", but the Sony KD-55X9305 has a rating of "B".
