Reasons For

3 Reasons For
54% thinner Edit
LG 55UF8517 is 50.8mm thick. That's 27.2mm thinner than the Sony KD-65X8509 (78mm). 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.

47% cheaper to run
Over five years the LG 55UF8517 is £113.61 cheaper to run than the Sony KD-65X8509. Read more
Energy efficiency rating is better
The LG 55UF8517 has an energy efficiency rating of "A+", however the Sony KD-65X8509 has a rating of "A".
1 Reason For
10" larger display diagonal Edit
The Sony KD-65X8509 is a 65" TV. That's 10" larger than the LG 55UF8517 (65"). Read more

‘Display Diagonal’ is the measure of the size of the TV screen from top-left to bottom-right corner, 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. TVs with a bigger display diagonal allow you to make the most of HD content and are great for watching movies. 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.
