Reasons For

JVC LT-40C750 Sony KDL-40R453
2 Reasons For
Wi-Fi
The JVC LT-40C750 supports Wi-Fi, but the Sony KDL-40R453 does not.

A Wifi (wireless LAN connection) on your TV means that you can connect your TV directly to your WiFi network.

A wifi connection means that connecting your TV to the net will be easier and can be done without cables.

Read more Read less | Edit
Ethernet Port
The JVC LT-40C750 has an ethernet port, whereas the Sony KDL-40R453 does not have an ethernet port.

An ethernet port lets you connect the TV directly to your router with an ethernet cable.

An ethernet connection is more reliable than wifi and is useful if you do not have a wiki network or the wifi signal is weak. Depending on the speed of your wifi network and ethernet connection may be faster than wifi which means less buffering when streaming content to the TV.

Read more Read less | Edit
7 Reasons For
50Hz Faster Motion Interpolation Frequency
The Sony KDL-40R453 has a motion interpolation frequency of 100Hz, however the JVC LT-40C750 is only a 50Hz motion interpolation frequency TV (50Hz slower).

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.

Read more Read less | Edit
Thinner
The Sony KDL-40R453 has a thickness of 65mm. That's 33mm thinner than the JVC LT-40C750 (98mm).

The thickness of a 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.

Read more Read less | Edit
Cheaper to Run by £19 Over Five Years
Over five years the Sony KDL-40R453 only costs £61 to run however the JVC LT-40C750 costs £80 to run (32% more).
Read more Read less
Better Brand
Sony TVs have an average rating of 69.3%, but JVC has an average rating of 60.8%.
Better for Watching Films
The Sony KDL-40R453 is better for watching films than the JVC LT-40C750.
When ranking TVs for their suitability to display films, we’ve concentrated on several key attributes. These include contrast ratio and local dimming, which allow the dark colours on the screen to look deeper and richer - helpful for nighttime scenes. Also the screen resolution plays a part - 4K and higher resolutions mean that the image will be clearer and more detailed. Finally the size of the screen is also important - explosions and big dramatic reveals are so much more effective when you don’t have to squint to see the screen!

Better for Watching Sport
The Sony KDL-40R453 is better for watching sport than the JVC LT-40C750.
When ranking TVs for sport, we’ve concentrated primarily on the most important attributes. First off, we concentrate on the ‘motion interpolation frequency’. This is important for fast-moving spots, since it reduces the amount of blurring on screen. We also take the size of the screen into account - sports matches are far more immersive when viewed on a giant screen! Finally, we look at display brightness and display resolution, so that the games always appear as fully-detailed and bright.

Better for Playing Games
The Sony KDL-40R453 is better for playing games than the JVC LT-40C750.
When ranking TVs for games, we’ve concentrated on a number of key attributes: primarily ‘motion interpolation frequency’ and ‘high refresh rate’. Both connect to the quality of the image coming from the games console to the TV - both reduce instances of blurring caused by fast moving objects on the screen, and allow the image to appear more detailed and cleaner.
