Reasons For

Samsung UN48JU6400 Sony KD-55X8005
2 Reasons For
A Lot Higher RMS Rated Power
The Samsung UN48JU6400 has an RMS rated power of 20W, however the Sony KD-55X8005 is only a 10W RMS rated power TV (10W lower).

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.

Samsung TVs have an average rating of 90.7%, but Sony has an average rating of 69.3%.
2 Reasons For
Larger Display Diagonal
The Sony KD-55X8005 has a display diagonal of 55", but the Samsung UN48JU6400 is only a 47.6" TV (7.4" 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
A Lot Faster Motion Interpolation Frequency
The Sony KD-55X8005 has a motion interpolation frequency of 200Hz, however the Samsung UN48JU6400 is only a 120Hz motion interpolation frequency TV (80Hz 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.
