Reasons For

6 Reasons For
Faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Sony KD-43X8307 is a 900Hz motion interpolation frequency TV. That's 700Hz faster than the Sony KD-49X8005 (200Hz). 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.

29% lower annual energy consumption Edit
The Sony KD-43X8307 is a 100kWh annual energy consumption TV. That's 29kWh lower than the Sony KD-49X8005 (129kWh). 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.

4 Reasons For
13% larger display diagonal Edit
The Sony KD-49X8005 has a display diagonal of 49", however the Sony KD-43X8307 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.

One more composite video in Edit
The Sony KD-49X8005 has two composite video ins, however the Sony KD-43X8307 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.

Energy efficiency rating is higher
The Sony KD-49X8005 has an energy efficiency rating of "A", but the Sony KD-43X8307 has a rating of "A".
Hugely better user reviews
Based on 1 user review, the average review score of the Sony KD-49X8005 is 100%, but the average rating of the Sony KD-43X8307 is 77% (based on 92 reviews).
