Reasons For

Sony KD-55X8507 Sony KD-55X8509
3 Reasons For

Read more Read less
Better for Watching Films
The Sony KD-55X8507 is better for watching films than the Sony KD-55X8509.
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!

Better for Playing Games
The Sony KD-55X8507 is better for playing games than the Sony KD-55X8509.
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.
Read more Read less
1 Reason For
Faster Motion Interpolation Frequency
The Sony KD-55X8509 is a 1,000Hz motion interpolation frequency TV. That's 100Hz faster than the Sony KD-55X8507 (900Hz).

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.
