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.

Two composite video in ports Edit
The Sony KD-43X8309 is a two composite video in port TV, whereas the Sony KD-43X8308 only has one composite video in port. Read more

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.
