Reasons For

LG 50LF652 Sony KDL-50W755
5 Reasons For
3D
The LG 50LF652 is a 3D TV, however the Sony KDL-50W755 is not 3D.

‘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.

Read more Read less | Edit
100Hz Faster Motion Interpolation Frequency
The LG 50LF652 is a 900Hz motion interpolation frequency TV. That's 100Hz faster than the Sony KDL-50W755 (800Hz).

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
A Bit Thinner
The LG 50LF652 is a 54.5mm thick TV, whereas the Sony KDL-50W755 is a 59mm thick TV (4.5mm 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.
