Reasons For

4 Reasons For
800Hz faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The LG 43UF6809 has a motion interpolation frequency of 1,000Hz, but the Sony KD-49X8005 is only a 200Hz motion interpolation frequency TV (800Hz 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.

50% higher RMS rated power Edit
The LG 43UF6809 is a 40W RMS rated power TV. That's 20W higher than the Sony KD-49X8005 (20W). Read more

RMS rated power stands for Root Mean Square rated power and it is typically used to measure the power output of the audio element of the TV.

A higher RMS rated power means that the audio system on the TV is more powerful and will be able to play the audio at higher volumes. A higher RMS power may also result in better quality audio at normal volume levels.

43% cheaper to run
Over five years the LG 43UF6809 only costs £85.15 to run but the Sony KD-49X8005 costs £149.02 to run (75% more). Read more
Energy efficiency rating is better
The LG 43UF6809 has an energy efficiency rating of "A+", however the Sony KD-49X8005 has a rating of "A".
3 Reasons For
13% larger display diagonal Edit
The Sony KD-49X8005 has a display diagonal of 49", however the LG 43UF6809 is only a 43" TV (6" 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.

Bluetooth Edit
The Sony KD-49X8005 supports Bluetooth, whereas the LG 43UF6809 does not support Bluetooth.
29% thinner Edit
The Sony KD-49X8005 is a 44mm thick TV. That's 12.4mm thinner than the LG 43UF6809 (44mm). 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.

Reasons Against
