Reasons For

Sony KDL-40RD453 Sony KDL40WE663
1 Reason For
Faster Motion Interpolation Frequency
The Sony KDL-40RD453 is a 200Hz motion interpolation frequency TV. That's 150Hz faster than the Sony KDL40WE663 (50Hz).

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.

4 Reasons For
Faster High Frequency Rate
The Sony KDL40WE663 is a 400Hz refresh rate TV. That's 200Hz faster than the Sony KDL-40RD453 (200Hz).

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.

Read more Read less | Edit
Wi-Fi
The Sony KDL40WE663 supports Wi-Fi, but the Sony KDL-40RD453 does not support Wi-Fi.

A Wifi (wireless LAN connection) on your TV means that you can connect your TV directly to your WiFi network.

A wifi connection means that connecting your TV to the net will be easier and can be done without cables.
