Reasons For

Sony KD-55S8505 Sony KD-55X8005 Sony KD-55X8507 Sony KD-55X8509
3 Reasons For
3D
The Sony KD-55S8505 is a 3D TV (as are the Sony KD-55X8507 and the Sony KD-55X8509), however the Sony KD-55X8005 is 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.

10W Higher RMS Rated Power
The Sony KD-55S8505 has an RMS rated power of 20W (as do the Sony KD-55X8507 and the Sony KD-55X8509), whereas 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.

50% Higher RMS Rated Power
The Sony KD-55X8507 is a 20W RMS rated power TV, and so do the Sony KD-55S8505 and the Sony KD-55X8509. That's 10W higher than the Sony KD-55X8005 (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.

Thinner
Sony KD-55X8507 is 60mm thick, and so does the Sony KD-55X8509. That's 39mm thinner than the Sony KD-55S8505 (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.

800Hz Faster Motion Interpolation Frequency
The Sony KD-55X8509 has a motion interpolation frequency of 1,000Hz, however the Sony KD-55S8505 is only an 800Hz motion interpolation frequency TV (200Hz slower), the Sony KD-55X8005 is only a 200Hz motion interpolation frequency TV (800Hz slower) and the Sony KD-55X8507 is only a 900Hz motion interpolation frequency TV (100Hz 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.

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.
