Reasons For

LG 40UH630 Sony KDL-40WD650
9 Reasons For
10W Higher RMS Rated Power
The LG 40UH630 has an RMS rated power of 20W, however the Sony KDL-40WD650 is only a 10W RMS rated power TV (10W lower).

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.

Read more Read less | Edit
Bluetooth
The LG 40UH630 supports Bluetooth, however the Sony KDL-40WD650 does not support Bluetooth.

A Bluetooth connection on your TV means it can send and receive data from Bluetooth-enabled devices, such as headphones, mobile phones or remotes.

A Bluetooth connection on your phone allows you to use many newer wireless devices with your TV, such as wireless headphones and controlling your TV using your phone.

Read more Read less | Edit
Miracast
The LG 40UH630 supports Miracast, however the Sony KDL-40WD650 does not support Miracast.

Miracast is a peer-to-peer wireless screencasting standard formed via Wi-Fi Direct connections in a manner similar to Bluetooth.

TVs with Miracast can use it to stream media from computers and mobile phones at very high quality without the need to attach cables first, making the whole process far easier.

Read more Read less | Edit
A Lot Thinner
The LG 40UH630 has a thickness of 48mm, however the Sony KDL-40WD650 is a 66mm thick TV (18mm thicker).

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
Common Interface (CI) Slot
The LG 40UH630 has a common interface (CI) slot, whereas the Sony KDL-40WD650 does not have a common interface (CI) slot.

A common interface slot provides compatibility with pay-per-view cards.

A common interface slot allows you to install pay per view cards. For example Sky TV sell pay per cards for watching football and boxing and WWE Network sell cards for watching wrestling.

Better Brand
LG TVs have an average rating of 86.2%, but Sony has an average rating of 68.9%.
Better for Watching Films
The LG 40UH630 is better for watching films than the Sony KDL-40WD650.
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 LG 40UH630 is better for watching sport than the Sony KDL-40WD650.
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.
