Reasons For

Samsung UE49KS9000 Sony KDL-32WD757
5 Reasons For
17" Larger Display Diagonal
The Samsung UE49KS9000 has a display diagonal of 49", but the Sony KDL-32WD757 is only a 32" TV (17" 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.

84% Higher RMS Rated Power
The Samsung UE49KS9000 is a 60W RMS rated power TV. That's 50W higher than the Sony KDL-32WD757 (10W).

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
Two Point One More Loudspeakers
The Samsung UE49KS9000 is a four point one loudspeaker TV, whereas the Sony KDL-32WD757 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.

Read more Read less | Edit
More Shops Are Selling it
A greater number of sellers increases the price competition amongst retailers for the product and also increases the chances of this TV remaining in stock.
Better Brand
Samsung TVs have an average rating of 90.8%, but Sony has an average rating of 68.9%.
4 Reasons For
200Hz Faster Motion Interpolation Frequency
The Sony KDL-32WD757 has a motion interpolation frequency of 400Hz, but the Samsung UE49KS9000 is only a 200Hz motion interpolation frequency TV (200Hz 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 KDL-32WD757 is 61mm thick. That's 38mm thinner than the Samsung UE49KS9000 (99mm).

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
Cheaper by £572
The Sony KDL-32WD757 costs £572.35 less than the Samsung UE49KS9000.
36% Cheaper to Run Over Five Years
Over five years the Sony KDL-32WD757 only costs £67 to run but the Samsung UE49KS9000 costs £105 to run (56% more).
