Better for Watching Films
The Sony KD-65S8005 is better for watching films than the Sony KD-65X8509.
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!

2 Reasons For
Wider Horizontal Viewing Angle
The Sony KD-65X8509 is a 178° horizontal viewing angle TV. That's 8° wider than the Sony KD-65S8005 (170°).

The horizontal viewing angle dictates the maximum angle at which the TV screen can be properly viewed.

A larger viewing angle means that the TV can be watched from many different parts of a room successfully. Conversely, a very small viewing angle means you would effectively have to sit directly in front of the TV to be able to view the screen successfully.

Better for Watching Sport
The Sony KD-65X8509 is better for watching sport than the Sony KD-65S8005.
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.

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.
