Reasons For

Sony KD-49X8309 Sony KDL-50W756 Sony KDL-50W809
5 Reasons For
90% Faster High Frequency Rate
The Sony KD-49X8309 is a 1,000Hz refresh rate TV. That's 900Hz faster than the Sony KDL-50W809 (100Hz).

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.

20% Faster Motion Interpolation Frequency
The Sony KD-49X8309 is a 1,000Hz motion interpolation frequency TV, and so does the Sony KDL-50W809. That's 200Hz faster than the Sony KDL-50W756 (800Hz).

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
A Lot Higher RMS Rated Power
The Sony KD-49X8309 has an RMS rated power of 20W (as does the Sony KDL-50W809), however the Sony KDL-50W756 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.

Better for Watching Sport
The Sony KD-49X8309 is better for watching sport than the Sony KDL-50W809.
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.

Better for Playing Games
The Sony KD-49X8309 is better for playing games than the Sony KDL-50W809.
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.

5 Reasons For
1" Larger Display Diagonal
The Sony KDL-50W756 has a display diagonal of 50" (as does the Sony KDL-50W809), 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.

Thinner
The Sony KDL-50W756 is a 59mm thick TV, and so does the Sony KDL-50W809. That's 1mm thinner than the Sony KD-49X8309 (60mm).

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.

£15 Cheaper to Run Over Five Years
Over five years the Sony KDL-50W756 only costs £91 to run whereas the Sony KD-49X8309 costs £106 to run (16% more).

Energy Efficiency Rating is Higher
The Sony KDL-50W756 has an energy efficiency rating of "A+", but the Sony KD-49X8309 has a rating of "A" and the Sony KDL-50W809 has a rating of "A+".
Better for Watching Films
The Sony KDL-50W756 is better for watching films than the Sony KD-49X8309 and Sony KDL-50W809.
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!

3D
The Sony KDL-50W809 is a 3D TV, but the Sony KD-49X8309 and the Sony KDL-50W756 are not 3D.

‘3D’ describes whether the TV can display 3D movies and programmes. Requires compatible 3D glasses to properly function.

3D technology has become increasingly popular as the amount of 3D film and TV content has increased dramatically in recent years. All 3D TVs will also display regular 2D content and most will allow you to switch on and off the 3D effect on 3D content. 3D compatible TVs allow you to watch 3D content. For most TVs you will need to wear special glasses to see the 3D effect.

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.
