Energy efficiency rating is higher
The Sony KD-65X8507 has an energy efficiency rating of "A", but the Sony KD-65XD9305 has a rating of "B".
7 Reasons For
10% faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Sony KD-65XD9305 is a 1,000Hz motion interpolation frequency TV. That's 100Hz faster than the Sony KD-65X8507 (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.

A lot higher RMS rated power Edit
The Sony KD-65XD9305 has an RMS rated power of 30W, however the Sony KD-65X8507 is only a 20W RMS rated power TV (10W 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.

Four loudspeakers Edit
The Sony KD-65XD9305 is a four loudspeaker TV, whereas the Sony KD-65X8507 only has two loudspeakers. Read more

The number of loudspeakers is the total number of speakers provided with the TV, either inside the TV casing or as external speakers.

A greater number of speakers will allow for better quality audio and different frequencies. Multiple external speakers will enable to the TV to play surround sound audio.

Wi-Fi Direct Edit
The Sony KD-65XD9305 supports Wi-Fi Direct, however the Sony KD-65X8507 does not. Read more

Wi-Fi Direct is a system to allow your TV to connect directly to other device without requiring a wireless router as a go-between.

Wi-Fi Direct is helpful on a TV because it allows a TV to connect to another device (such as a computer or phone) directly, meaning there is far less setup required - the devices just need to be 'paired' (normally at a press of a button) and the y can transfer data between each other. This is extremely useful for streaming media onto your TV from a computer or phone.

42mm thinner Edit
The Sony KD-65XD9305 has a depth of 36mm, however the Sony KD-65X8507 is a 78mm thick TV (42mm 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.

£49 cheaper
The Sony KD-65XD9305 is £49.01 cheaper than the Sony KD-65X8507.
Available from 15 shops
A greater number of stores increases the price competition amongst retailers for this TV and also increases the chances of the product remaining in stock.
