2 Reasons For
A little faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Sony KD-43X8308 has a motion interpolation frequency of 1,000Hz (as does the Sony KD-43X8309), however the Sony KD-43X8307 is only a 900Hz motion interpolation frequency TV (100Hz 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. 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.

Energy efficiency rating is superior
The Sony KD-43X8308 has an energy efficiency rating of "A", whereas the Sony KD-43X8307 has a rating of "A" and the Sony KD-43X8309 has a rating of "A".
4 Reasons For
10% faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Sony KD-43X8309 is a 1,000Hz motion interpolation frequency TV, and so does the Sony KD-43X8308. That's 100Hz faster than the Sony KD-43X8307 (1,000Hz). Read more

Two composite video ins Edit
The Sony KD-43X8309 is a two composite video in TV, whereas the Sony KD-43X8308 only has one composite video in. Read more

Composite video connections can only display images up to a resolutionsof 640 x 480 pixels so the quality of image displayed via a composite video connection will be quite low.

Multiple composite video ports will allow you to connect more than one older video device. However it is very unlikely that you will use the composite video port at all.

£66 cheaper

Better energy efficiency rating
The energy efficiency rating of the Sony KD-43X8309 is "A", however the rating of the Sony KD-43X8307 is "A" and the rating of the Sony KD-43X8308 is "A".
