Reasons For

4 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

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.

PC in (D-Sub) Edit
The Haier LE49U5000 has a PC in (D-Sub), whereas the Sony KD-43X8307 does not have a PC in (D-Sub). Read more

7 Reasons For
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. 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.

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.

One more HDMI ports quantity Edit
The number of HDMI ports quantitys on the Sony KD-43X8307 is four, but the Haier LE49U5000 only has three HDMI ports quantitys. Read more

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
