Reasons For

7 Reasons For
Moderately larger screen size Edit
The Philips 50PUT6400 has a screen size of 50", however the Sony KD-49X8309 is only a 49" TV (1" smaller). Read more

The display diagonal of a TV is the most common measure of screen size and is the distance from the top left to the bottom right of the visible part of a TV screen excluding any frame or border. One of the most important considerations when choosing the right screen size for your TV is the typical distance from which you will be viewing the screen. A good rule of thumb is to multiply the display diagonal by 2.5 to determine the viewing distance. So a 40 inch TV is best viewed from 100 inches away, which is equivalent to 8.3 feet or 2.54m. For home cinema setups and a truly immersive experience this ratio can be reduced to 1.2. This will give a screen size that fills 40 degrees of the viewer's field of vision. So if you viewing from a distance of 6ft (72 inches) you would need a TV display diagonal of 60 inches.

TVs with a bigger display diagonal allow you to make the most of HD content and are great for watching movies.

Lower annual energy consumption Edit
The Philips 50PUT6400 has an annual energy consumption of 101kWh, but the Sony KD-49X8309 is a 117kWh annual energy consumption TV (16kWh 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.

1.1kg lighter Edit
The Philips 50PUT6400 has a weight of 13.3kg, however the Sony KD-49X8309 is a 14.4kg heavy TV (1.1kg 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.

The Philips 50PUT6400 costs £399.00, whereas the Sony KD-49X8309 is £449.00.
4 shops are selling it

Energy efficiency rating is higher
The Philips 50PUT6400 has an energy efficiency rating of "A+", but the Sony KD-49X8309 has a rating of "A".
2 Reasons For
300Hz faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Sony KD-49X8309 has a motion interpolation frequency of 1,000Hz, but the Philips 50PUT6400 is only a 700Hz motion interpolation frequency TV (300Hz 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.

Thinner Edit
Sony KD-49X8309 is 60mm thick. That's 17mm thinner than the Philips 50PUT6400 (60mm). 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.
