Reasons For

3 Reasons For
Larger display diagonal Edit
The Haier LE49U5000 has a display diagonal of 49", but the Sony KD-43X8307 is only a 43" TV (6" 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.

PC in (D-Sub) port Edit
The Haier LE49U5000 has a PC in (D-Sub) port, whereas the Sony KD-43X8307 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. Also known as a VGA Port.

A D-sub port is needed to connect your TV to older devices and computers that use a VGA connection - generally those made before 2000.

Energy efficiency rating is superior
The Haier LE49U5000 has an energy efficiency rating of "A", whereas the Sony KD-43X8307 has a rating of "A".
8 Reasons For
Faster high frequency rate Edit
Sony KD-43X8307 is 800Hz refresh rate. That's 680Hz faster than the Haier LE49U5000 (800Hz). Read more

The refresh rate (also known as the high frequency rate) is the number of times that the image on the screen is refreshed per second. It affects how smoothly motion on the screen appears.

Action will appear smoother on TVs with a higher frequency rate: a TV with a high frequency rate of 30Hz refreshes the image on the screen once every 30 times every second. However a TV with a high frequency rate of 60Hz would refresh the image on the screen 60 times every second which means that action scenes would appear smoother.

Faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Sony KD-43X8307 is a 900Hz motion interpolation frequency TV. That's 500Hz faster than the Haier LE49U5000 (900Hz). 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.

Wider horizontal viewing angle Edit
The Sony KD-43X8307 is a 178° horizontal viewing angle TV. That's 8° wider than the Haier LE49U5000 (178°). Read more

The horizontal viewing angle dictates the maximum angle at which the TV screen can be properly viewed.

A larger viewing angle means that the TV can be watched from many different parts of a room successfully. Conversely, a very small viewing angle means you would effectively have to sit directly in front of the TV to be able to view the screen successfully.

4W higher RMS rated power Edit
The Sony KD-43X8307 has an RMS rated power of 20W, whereas the Haier LE49U5000 is only a 16W RMS rated power TV (4W 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.

Electronic Programme Guide (EPG) Edit
The Sony KD-43X8307 has an Electronic Programme Guide (EPG), however the Haier LE49U5000 does not have an Electronic Programme Guide (EPG). Read more

An Electronic Program Guide (EPG) is an application on your TV that lists current and upcoming programs for all channels, and a short summary or commentary for each program.

An EPG is extremely helpful to be able to see what programs are coming up that you may want to watch, and plan your viewing accordingly. They also work in tandem with recording software to set up automatic recording of programs.

9mm thinner Edit
The Sony KD-43X8307 is a 60mm thick TV, whereas the Haier LE49U5000 is a 69mm thick TV (9mm 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.

£19.23 cheaper to run
The Sony KD-43X8307 is £19.23 cheaper to run than the Haier LE49U5000 over five years. Read more
Higher energy efficiency rating
The energy efficiency rating of the Sony KD-43X8307 is "A", but the rating of the Haier LE49U5000 is "A".

Reasons Against

8 Reasons Against
Slower high frequency rate Edit
The Haier LE49U5000 is a 120Hz refresh rate TV, whereas the Sony KD-43X8307 is an 800Hz refresh rate TV (680Hz faster). Read more

The refresh rate (also known as the high frequency rate) is the number of times that the image on the screen is refreshed per second. It affects how smoothly motion on the screen appears.

Action will appear smoother on TVs with a higher frequency rate: a TV with a high frequency rate of 30Hz refreshes the image on the screen once every 30 times every second. However a TV with a high frequency rate of 60Hz would refresh the image on the screen 60 times every second which means that action scenes would appear smoother.

Two times slower motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Haier LE49U5000 has a motion interpolation frequency of 400Hz, however the Sony KD-43X8307 is a 900Hz motion interpolation frequency TV (500Hz faster). 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.

8° narrower horizontal viewing angle Edit
The Haier LE49U5000 has a horizontal viewing angle of 170°, however the Sony KD-43X8307 is a 178° horizontal viewing angle TV (8° wider). Read more

The horizontal viewing angle dictates the maximum angle at which the TV screen can be properly viewed.

A larger viewing angle means that the TV can be watched from many different parts of a room successfully. Conversely, a very small viewing angle means you would effectively have to sit directly in front of the TV to be able to view the screen successfully.

25% lower RMS rated power Edit
The Haier LE49U5000 is a 16W RMS rated power TV. That's 4W lower than the Sony KD-43X8307 (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.
