Reasons For

LG 60UF695 Sony KD-65X8509
5 Reasons For
Thinner
LG 60UF695 is 39.1mm thick, but the Sony KD-65X8509 is a 78mm thick TV (38.9mm 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.

30% Cheaper to Run Over Five Years
The LG 60UF695 is £55 cheaper to run than the Sony KD-65X8509 over five years.

Better Energy Efficiency Rating
The energy efficiency rating of the LG 60UF695 is "A+", however the rating of the Sony KD-65X8509 is "A".
Better Brand
LG TVs have an average rating of 86.2%, whereas Sony has an average rating of 67.5%.
Better for Watching Films
The LG 60UF695 is better for watching films than the Sony KD-65X8509.
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!

3 Reasons For
5" Larger Display Diagonal
The Sony KD-65X8509 has a display diagonal of 65", whereas the LG 60UF695 is only a 60" TV (5" smaller).

‘Display Diagonal’ is the measure of the size of the TV screen from top-left to bottom-right corner, excluding any frame or border.

One of the most important considerations when choosing the right screen size for your TV is the typical distance from which you will be viewing the screen. TVs with a bigger display diagonal allow you to make the most of HD content and are great for watching movies. A good rule of thumb is to multiply the display diagonal by 2.5 to determine the viewing distance. So a 40 inch TV is best viewed from 100 inches away, which is equivalent to 8.3 feet or 2.54m. For home cinema setups and a truly immersive experience this ratio can be reduced to 1.2. This will give a screen size that fills 40 degrees of the viewer's field of vision. So if you viewing from a distance of 6ft (72 inches) you would need a TV display diagonal of 60 inches.

Read more Read less | Edit
3D
The Sony KD-65X8509 is 3D, whereas the LG 60UF695 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.

Better for Watching Sport
The Sony KD-65X8509 is better for watching sport than the LG 60UF695.
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.
