Reasons For

3 Reasons For
A little larger screen size Edit
The LG 65UF7700 has a screen size of 65"", but the Sony XBR-65X850 is only a 64.5"" TV (0.5" smaller). Read more

The display diagonal of a TV is the most common measure of screen size and is the distance from the top left to the bottom right of the visible part of a TV screen excluding any frame or border. One of the most important considerations when choosing the right screen size for your TV is the typical distance from which you will be viewing the screen. A good rule of thumb is to multiply the display diagonal by 2.5 to determine the viewing distance. So a 40 inch TV is best viewed from 100 inches away, which is equivalent to 8.3 feet or 2.54m. For home cinema setups and a truly immersive experience this ratio can be reduced to 1.2. This will give a screen size that fills 40 degrees of the viewer's field of vision. So if you viewing from a distance of 6ft (72 inches) you would need a TV display diagonal of 60 inches.

TVs with a bigger display diagonal allow you to make the most of HD content and are great for watching movies.

34% thinner Edit
The LG 65UF7700 has a thickness of 58.5mmmm. That's 19.5mm thinner than the Sony XBR-65X850 (78mmmm). Read more

The depth of the TV is the thickness of the 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.

Significantly better user reviews
The average user review score of the LG 65UF7700 is 100%, whereas the average rating of the Sony XBR-65X850 is 80% (based on 1 review).
5 Reasons For
One more USB 2.0 port Edit
The number of USB 2.0 ports on the Sony XBR-65X850 is three, but the LG 65UF7700 only has two USB 2.0 ports. Read more

More USB ports will allow you to connect more USB devices to the TV simultaneously without needing to continuous plug in and unplug cables.

Four HDMI ports Edit
The Sony XBR-65X850 is a four HDMI port TV, whereas the LG 65UF7700 only has three HDMI ports. Read more

The HDMI ports quantity is the number of ports that the TV has that will accept a HDMI cable. HDMI is the most common type of cable used to connect modern TVs, DVD players, games consoles etc.
