Reasons For

Sony KDL-55W755 Sony KDL55W808C
No data 3 Reasons For
3D
The Sony KDL55W808C is a 3D TV, but the Sony KDL-55W755 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.

Read more Read less | Edit
20% Faster Motion Interpolation Frequency
The Sony KDL55W808C is a 1,000Hz motion interpolation frequency TV. That's 200Hz faster than the Sony KDL-55W755 (800Hz).

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.
