Reasons For

5 Reasons For
3D Edit
The LG 65UH850 is a 3D TV, however the Sony KD-65XD8577 is 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.

A lot higher RMS rated power Edit
The LG 65UH850 has an RMS rated power of 40W, whereas the Sony KD-65XD8577 is only a 20W RMS rated power TV (20W 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.

£180 cheaper
The LG 65UH850 costs £1,969.48, whereas the Sony KD-65XD8577 is £2,149.00.
£8.01 cheaper to run
The LG 65UH850 only costs £185.71 to run over five years whereas the Sony KD-65XD8577 costs £193.72 to run (4% more). Read more
Higher energy efficiency rating
The energy efficiency rating of the LG 65UH850 is "A+", but the rating of the Sony KD-65XD8577 is "A+".
4 Reasons For
800Hz faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Sony KD-65XD8577 has a motion interpolation frequency of 1,000Hz, however the LG 65UH850 is only a 200Hz motion interpolation frequency TV (800Hz 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.

20% thinner Edit
The Sony KD-65XD8577 has a depth of 44mm. That's 8.7mm thinner than the LG 65UH850 (44mm). 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.

4 shops are selling it
A greater number of sellers increases the price competition amongst retailers for the product and also increases the chances of this TV remaining in stock.
Energy efficiency rating is superior
The Sony KD-65XD8577 has an energy efficiency rating of "A+", whereas the LG 65UH850 has a rating of "A+".
