Reasons For

8 Reasons For
Faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Samsung UE55JU6510 has a motion interpolation frequency of 1,100Hz, but the Sony KD-55X8507 is only a 900Hz motion interpolation frequency TV (200Hz 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.

Two RF ports quantitys Edit
The number of RF ports quantitys on the Samsung UE55JU6510 is two, but the Sony KD-55X8507 only has one RF ports quantity. Read more

RF stands for Radio Frequency and an RF port is an older type of input connector for TVs which is most commonly use for connecting cable TV and satellite TV feeds directly to the TV.

Multiple RF ports will allow you to connect multiple RF feeds to the TV at the same time. For example, if the TV has a built in satellite TV decoder then you could connect 2 different satellite dishes to the TV.

45kWh lower annual energy consumption Edit
The Samsung UE55JU6510 has an annual energy consumption of 115kWh, however the Sony KD-55X8507 is a 160kWh annual energy consumption TV (45kWh 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.

3.7kg lighter Edit
The Samsung UE55JU6510 is a 16.2kg heavy TV, whereas the Sony KD-55X8507 is a 19.9kg heavy TV (3.7kg 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 Samsung UE55JU6510 costs £49.01 less than the Sony KD-55X8507.
3 shops are selling it
A greater number of shops increases the chances of the product remaining in stock and also increases the price competition amongst retailers for this TV.
28% cheaper to run
Over five years the Samsung UE55JU6510 is £52.48 cheaper to run than the Sony KD-55X8507. Read more
Energy efficiency rating is better
The Samsung UE55JU6510 has an energy efficiency rating of "A+", however the Sony KD-55X8507 has a rating of "A".
1 Reason For
3D Edit
The Sony KD-55X8507 is a 3D TV, however the Samsung UE55JU6510 is not 3D. 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.
