Reasons For

3 Reasons For
3D Edit
The Sony KD-65S8505 is 3D, however the Sony KD-65XD8577 and the Sony KD-65XD8599 are not 3D. 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.

700Hz faster high frequency rate Edit
Sony KD-65S8505 is 800Hz refresh rate, but the Sony KD-65XD8599 is only a 100Hz refresh rate TV (700Hz slower). 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.

Cheaper by £269
The Sony KD-65S8505 costs £1,079.99, whereas the Sony KD-65XD8577 is £2,149.00 and the Sony KD-65XD8599 is £1,349.00.
4 Reasons For
20% faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Sony KD-65XD8577 is a 1,000Hz motion interpolation frequency TV, and so does the Sony KD-65XD8599. That's 200Hz faster than the Sony KD-65S8505 (1,000Hz). 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-65XD8577 is a 178° horizontal viewing angle TV, and so does the Sony KD-65XD8599. That's 8° wider than the Sony KD-65S8505 (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.

Cheaper to run by £43.27
The Sony KD-65XD8577 is £43.27 cheaper to run than the Sony KD-65S8505 over five years. Read more
Superior energy efficiency rating
The energy efficiency rating of the Sony KD-65XD8577 is "A+", whereas the rating of the Sony KD-65S8505 is "A" and the rating of the Sony KD-65XD8599 is "A+".
5 Reasons For
20% faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Sony KD-65XD8599 has a motion interpolation frequency of 1,000Hz (as does the Sony KD-65XD8577), however the Sony KD-65S8505 is only an 800Hz motion interpolation frequency TV (200Hz 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.

A little wider horizontal viewing angle Edit
The Sony KD-65XD8599 has a horizontal viewing angle of 178° (as does the Sony KD-65XD8577), however the Sony KD-65S8505 is only a 170° horizontal viewing angle TV (8° narrower). 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.

15 shops are selling it
A greater number of shops increases the price competition amongst retailers for the product and also increases the chances of this TV remaining in stock.
Cheaper to run by £43.27
Over five years the Sony KD-65XD8599 is £43.27 cheaper to run than the Sony KD-65S8505. Read more
Energy efficiency rating is superior
The Sony KD-65XD8599 has an energy efficiency rating of "A+", whereas the Sony KD-65S8505 has a rating of "A" and the Sony KD-65XD8577 has a rating of "A+".

Reasons Against

6 Reasons Against
200Hz slower motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Sony KD-65S8505 has a motion interpolation frequency of 800Hz, whereas the Sony KD-65XD8577 and the Sony KD-65XD8599 are both 1,000Hz motion interpolation frequency TVs (200Hz 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 Sony KD-65S8505 has a horizontal viewing angle of 170°, whereas the Sony KD-65XD8577 and the Sony KD-65XD8599 are both 178° horizontal viewing angle TVs (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.

Not as many stockists
The Sony KD-65S8505 is only stocked by 2 retailers, however the Sony KD-65XD8577 is stocked by 5 stores and the Sony KD-65XD8599 is stocked by 17 retailers. Read more
