Reasons For

Panasonic TX-65CX802 Sony KD-65X9305
3 Reasons For
1,500Hz Faster High Frequency Rate
The Panasonic TX-65CX802 has a high frequency rate of 1,600Hz, however the Sony KD-65X9305 is only a 100Hz refresh rate TV (1,500Hz slower).

The refresh rate (also known as the high frequency rate) is the number of times that the image on the screen is refreshed per second. It affects how smoothly motion on the screen appears.

Action will appear smoother on TVs with a higher frequency rate: a TV with a high frequency rate of 30Hz refreshes the image on the screen once every 30 times every second. However a TV with a high frequency rate of 60Hz would refresh the image on the screen 60 times every second which means that action scenes would appear smoother.

Faster Motion Interpolation Frequency
The Panasonic TX-65CX802 has a motion interpolation frequency of 1,600Hz, but the Sony KD-65X9305 is only a 1,200Hz motion interpolation frequency TV (400Hz 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
Panasonic TX-65CX802 is 61mm thick. That's 29mm thinner than the Sony KD-65X9305 (90mm).

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
4 Reasons For
A Bit Wider Horizontal Viewing Angle
The Sony KD-65X9305 has a horizontal viewing angle of 178°, however the Panasonic TX-65CX802 is only a 176° horizontal viewing angle TV (2° narrower).

The horizontal viewing angle dictates the maximum angle at which the TV screen can be properly viewed.

A larger viewing angle means that the TV can be watched from many different parts of a room successfully. Conversely, a very small viewing angle means you would effectively have to sit directly in front of the TV to be able to view the screen successfully.

Read more Read less | Edit
Higher RMS Rated Power
The Sony KD-65X9305 is a 90W RMS rated power TV. That's 50W higher than the Panasonic TX-65CX802 (40W).

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
Four More Loudspeakers
The Sony KD-65X9305 is a six loudspeaker TV, whereas the Panasonic TX-65CX802 only has two loudspeakers.

The number of loudspeakers is the total number of speakers provided with the TV, either inside the TV casing or as external speakers.

A greater number of speakers will allow for better quality audio and different frequencies. Multiple external speakers will enable to the TV to play surround sound audio.

Running Costs Over 5 Years

TV running costs calculated based on an average of 5 hours of use per day. The running cost comprises the electricity cost when using the TV and the electricity standby cost. Compare all energy saving TVs.

Environmental Impact

We have calculated the amount of CO2 that will be generated by running each of these TVs for 5 years. We have then converted that into the number of tree seedlings that you would need to plant and grow for 10 years in order to offset that amount of CO2.
