4 Reasons For
3D compatible Edit
The Sony KDL-50W809 is a 3D compatible TV, but the Sony KDL-50W755 is not 3D compatible. Read more

3D technology has become increasingly popular as the amount of 3D film and TV content has increased dramatically in recent years. All 3D TVs will also display regular 2D content and most will allow you to switch on and off the 3D effect on 3D content. Most 3D TVs require you to wear special 3D glasses in order to view the content in 3D, however some of the newer 3D TVs require no 3D glasses at all. Of those TVs that do require glasses, there are two main types of 3D technology: passive and active. Passive 3D uses glasses similar to those that you wear in the cinema. The glasses have polarised lenses which ensure that the correct image is displayed to each eye. The main advantage of passive 3D is that the glasses are very light and comfortable to wear, but it can result in a less bright image. Active 3D uses battery powered glasses which control active shutters in each lens. These shutters constantly open and close very quickly in sync with two different images that are being displayed by the TV. This ensures that the correct image is displayed to each eye. The main advantage of active 3D is that the image is brighter, however the glasses are heavier and more expensive.

3D compatible TVs allow you to watch 3D content. For most TVs you will need to wear special glasses to see the 3D effect.

20% faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Sony KDL-50W809 is a 1,000Hz motion interpolation frequency TV. That's 200Hz faster than the Sony KDL-50W755 (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.

PC in port Edit
The Sony KDL-50W809 has a PC in port, whereas the Sony KDL-50W755 does not have a PC in port. 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.

Superior energy efficiency rating
The energy efficiency rating of the Sony KDL-50W809 is "A+", whereas the rating of the Sony KDL-50W755 is "A+".
