Reasons For

1 Reason For
PC in (D-Sub) port Edit
The Samsung ED75E has a PC in (D-Sub) port, but the Sony KD-75XD9405 does not have a PC in (D-Sub) port. Read more

The socket (port) to receive input from a PC via a D-sub, which is a connector with a characteristic D-shaped metal shield.

8 Reasons For
3D Edit
The Sony KD-75XD9405 is a 3D TV, but the Samsung ED75E is not 3D. Read more

3D technology has become increasingly popular as the amount of 3D film and TV content has increased dramatically in recent years. All 3D TVs will also display regular 2D content and most will allow you to switch on and off the 3D effect on 3D content. Most 3D TVs require you to wear special 3D glasses in order to view the content in 3D, however some of the newer 3D TVs require no 3D glasses at all. Of those TVs that do require glasses, there are two main types of 3D technology: passive and active. Passive 3D uses glasses similar to those that you wear in the cinema. The glasses have polarised lenses which ensure that the correct image is displayed to each eye. The main advantage of passive 3D is that the glasses are very light and comfortable to wear, but it can result in a less bright image. Active 3D uses battery powered glasses which control active shutters in each lens. These shutters constantly open and close very quickly in sync with two different images that are being displayed by the TV. This ensures that the correct image is displayed to each eye. The main advantage of active 3D is that the image is brighter, however the glasses are heavier and more expensive.

3D compatible TVs allow you to watch 3D content. For most TVs you will need to wear special glasses to see the 3D effect.

Vastly higher RMS rated power Edit
The Sony KD-75XD9405 has an RMS rated power of 30W, however the Samsung ED75E is only a 10W RMS rated power TV (20W lower). 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.

Four loudspeakers Edit
The Sony KD-75XD9405 is a four loudspeaker TV, whereas the Samsung ED75E only has two loudspeakers. Read more

The number of loudspeakers is the total number of speakers provided with the TV, either inside the TV casing or as external speakers.

A greater number of speakers will allow for better quality audio and different frequencies. Multiple external speakers will enable to the TV to play surround sound audio.

11% thinner Edit
The Sony KD-75XD9405 has a depth of 52mm, however the Samsung ED75E is a 57.7mm thick TV (5.7mm thicker). 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.
