Reasons For

3 Reasons For
A lot thinner Edit
The Sony KD-49X8005 has a depth of 44mm, however the Sony KDL-50W755 is a 59mm thick TV (15mm 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.

5 Reasons For
1" larger display diagonal Edit
The Sony KDL-50W755 has a display diagonal of 50", but the Sony KD-49X8005 is only a 49" TV (1" 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.

600Hz faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Sony KDL-50W755 has a motion interpolation frequency of 800Hz, however the Sony KD-49X8005 is only a 200Hz 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. 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.

The Sony KDL-50W755 is £150.99 cheaper than the Sony KD-49X8005.
Cheaper to run by £30.61
