Reasons For

2 Reasons For
Larger display diagonal Edit
The Sony KD-49X8309 has a display diagonal of 49", but the Sony KDL-43W755 is only a 43" TV (6" smaller). 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.

20% faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Sony KD-49X8309 has a motion interpolation frequency of 1,000Hz, however the Sony KDL-43W755 is only an 800Hz 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.

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

5 Reasons For
2% thinner Edit
Sony KDL-43W755 is 59mm thick. That's 1mm thinner than the Sony KD-49X8309 (59mm). Read more
