Reasons For

Sony KD49XE8005 Sony KD49XE9005
4 Reasons For
9% Thinner
Sony KD49XE8005 is 57mm thick. That's 5mm thinner than the Sony KD49XE9005 (62mm).

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.

Read more Read less | Edit
Cheaper by £319
The Sony KD49XE8005 costs £319.43 less than the Sony KD49XE9005.
14% Cheaper to Run
Over five years the Sony KD49XE8005 is £17.15 cheaper to run than the Sony KD49XE9005.
Read more Read less
Energy Efficiency Rating is Better
The Sony KD49XE8005 has an energy efficiency rating of "A", however the Sony KD49XE9005 has a rating of "B".
5 Reasons For
Faster Motion Interpolation Frequency
The Sony KD49XE9005 is a 1,000Hz motion interpolation frequency TV. That's 800Hz faster than the Sony KD49XE8005 (200Hz).

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.

More Shops Are Selling it
A greater number of retailers increases the price competition amongst retailers for this TV and also increases the chances of the product remaining in stock.
Very Good for Watching Films
The Sony KD49XE9005 is better for watching films than the Sony KD49XE8005.
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!

Good for Watching Sport
The Sony KD49XE9005 is better for watching sport than the Sony KD49XE8005.
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.

Good for Playing Games
The Sony KD49XE9005 is better for playing games than the Sony KD49XE8005.
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.
