Reasons For

3 Reasons For
Wi-Fi Direct Edit
The Sony KD-65S8505 supports Wi-Fi Direct (as does the Sony KD-65X8509), however the Sony KD-65X8507 does not support Wi-Fi Direct. Read more

Wi-Fi Direct is a system to allow your TV to connect directly to other device without requiring a wireless router as a go-between.

Wi-Fi Direct is helpful on a TV because it allows a TV to connect to another device (such as a computer or phone) directly, meaning there is far less setup required - the devices just need to be 'paired' (normally at a press of a button) and the y can transfer data between each other. This is extremely useful for streaming media onto your TV from a computer or phone.

Cheaper to run by £4.81
Over five years the Sony KD-65S8505 is £4.81 cheaper to run than the Sony KD-65X8507 and £4.81 cheaper to run than the Sony KD-65X8509. Read more
Energy efficiency rating is superior
The Sony KD-65S8505 has an energy efficiency rating of "A", whereas the Sony KD-65X8507 has a rating of "A" and the Sony KD-65X8509 has a rating of "A".
3 Reasons For
A bit wider horizontal viewing angle Edit
The Sony KD-65X8507 has a horizontal viewing angle of 178° (as does the Sony KD-65X8509), whereas the Sony KD-65S8505 is only a 170° horizontal viewing angle TV (8° narrower). Read more

The horizontal viewing angle dictates the maximum angle at which the TV screen can be properly viewed.

A larger viewing angle means that the TV can be watched from many different parts of a room successfully. Conversely, a very small viewing angle means you would effectively have to sit directly in front of the TV to be able to view the screen successfully.

3 shops are selling it
The more shops stock the product, the greater competition amongst shops to keep prices low.
Energy efficiency rating is higher
The Sony KD-65X8507 has an energy efficiency rating of "A", but the Sony KD-65S8505 has a rating of "A" and the Sony KD-65X8509 has a rating of "A".

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.

A faster motion interpolation frequency will result in smoother action scenes, less motion blur and a more life like image.

Wider horizontal viewing angle Edit
