Reasons For

Philips 50PUT6400 Sony KD-49X8309
6 Reasons For
Moderately Larger Display Diagonal
The Philips 50PUT6400 has a display diagonal of 50", however the Sony KD-49X8309 is only a 49" TV (1" 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.

£15 Cheaper to Run Over Five Years
Over five years the Philips 50PUT6400 is £15 cheaper to run than the Sony KD-49X8309.
Read more Read less
Energy Efficiency Rating is Higher
The Philips 50PUT6400 has an energy efficiency rating of "A+", but the Sony KD-49X8309 has a rating of "A".
Better Brand
Philips TVs have an average rating of 84.3%, however Sony has an average rating of 69.3%.
Better for Watching Films
The Philips 50PUT6400 is better for watching films than the Sony KD-49X8309.
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 Philips 50PUT6400 is better for watching sport than the Sony KD-49X8309.
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.
Read more Read less
2 Reasons For
300Hz Faster Motion Interpolation Frequency
The Sony KD-49X8309 has a motion interpolation frequency of 1,000Hz, but the Philips 50PUT6400 is only a 700Hz motion interpolation frequency TV (300Hz 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
Sony KD-49X8309 is 60mm thick. That's 17mm thinner than the Philips 50PUT6400 (77mm).

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.
