Reasons For

5 Reasons For
16% larger display diagonal Edit
The Panasonic TX-65CR852 has a display diagonal of 65", however the Sony KD-55SD8505 is only a 55" TV (10" 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.

3D Edit
The Panasonic TX-65CR852 is 3D, however the Sony KD-55SD8505 is not. Read more

‘3D’ describes whether the TV can display 3D movies and programmes. Requires compatible 3D glasses to properly function.

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

A lot faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Panasonic TX-65CR852 has a motion interpolation frequency of 1,600Hz, whereas the Sony KD-55SD8505 is only a 1,000Hz motion interpolation frequency TV (600Hz 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.

Higher RMS rated power Edit
The Panasonic TX-65CR852 is a 40W RMS rated power TV. That's 20W higher than the Sony KD-55SD8505 (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.

Energy efficiency rating is higher
The Panasonic TX-65CR852 has an energy efficiency rating of "A", but the Sony KD-55SD8505 has a rating of "A".
