Reasons For

Sony KD-49X8005 Sony KDL-50W755
1 Reason For
A Lot Thinner
The Sony KD-49X8005 has a thickness of 44mm, however the Sony KDL-50W755 is a 59mm thick TV (15mm 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.

5 Reasons For
1" Larger Display Diagonal
The Sony KDL-50W755 has a display diagonal of 50", but the Sony KD-49X8005 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.

Read more Read less | Edit
600Hz Faster Motion Interpolation Frequency
The Sony KDL-50W755 has a motion interpolation frequency of 800Hz, however the Sony KD-49X8005 is only a 200Hz motion interpolation frequency TV (600Hz 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
Cheaper to Run by £22 Over Five Years
Over five years the Sony KDL-50W755 only costs £91 to run however the Sony KD-49X8005 costs £113 to run (25% more).
Read more Read less
Energy Efficiency Rating is Superior
The Sony KDL-50W755 has an energy efficiency rating of "A+", whereas the Sony KD-49X8005 has a rating of "A".
Better for Playing Games
The Sony KDL-50W755 is better for playing games than the Sony KD-49X8005.
When ranking TVs for games, we’ve concentrated on a number of key attributes: primarily ‘motion interpolation frequency’ and ‘high refresh rate’. Both connect to the quality of the image coming from the games console to the TV - both reduce instances of blurring caused by fast moving objects on the screen, and allow the image to appear more detailed and cleaner.
