Reasons For

3 Reasons For
One more RF ports quantity Edit
The Samsung UN48JU6400 has two RF ports quantitys, however the Sony KD-55X8005 only has one RF ports quantity. Read more

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.

£189 cheaper
The Samsung UN48JU6400 is £189.01 cheaper than the Sony KD-55X8005.
User reviews are a lot better
The Samsung UN48JU6400 has an average user review score of 92% based on 5 reviews, whereas the Sony KD-55X8005 has an average rating of 80% (based on 2 reviews).
6 Reasons For
Larger display diagonal Edit
The Sony KD-55X8005 has a display diagonal of 55", but the Samsung UN48JU6400 is only a 47.6" TV (7.4" 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.

A lot faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Sony KD-55X8005 has a motion interpolation frequency of 200Hz, however the Samsung UN48JU6400 is only a 120Hz motion interpolation frequency TV (80Hz 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.

One more composite video in Edit
The number of composite video ins on the Sony KD-55X8005 is two, but the Samsung UN48JU6400 only has one composite video in. Read more

A composite video port is mainly used for connecting older devices to the TV, such as older video cameras or video recorders. Composite video connections can only display images up to a resolutionsof 640 x 480 pixels so the quality of image displayed via a composite video connection will be quite low.

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.

One more USB 2.0 ports quantity Edit
The number of USB 2.0 ports quantitys on the Sony KD-55X8005 is three, but the Samsung UN48JU6400 only has two USB 2.0 ports quantitys. Read more

USB ports are useful for displaying on your TV photos / videos or playing music that is stored on USB key drives. The USB port can also be used for charging devices from your TV (as long as it's switched on), and for installing software updates on the TV.

More USB ports will allow you to connect more USB devices to the TV simultaneously without needing to continuous plug in and unplug cables.

Four HDMI ports quantitys Edit
The Sony KD-55X8005 is a four HDMI ports quantity TV, whereas the Samsung UN48JU6400 only has three HDMI ports quantitys. Read more

The HDMI ports quantity is the number of ports that the TV has that will accept a HDMI cable. HDMI is the most common type of cable used to connect modern TVs, DVD players, games consoles etc.

A greater number of HDMI ports will allow you to permanently connect more devices to the TV and will reduce the need to reach around the back of the TV to unplug and plug in cables when switching between devices.
