Reasons For

3 Reasons For
Larger screen size Edit
The LG 65UF9500 is a 65"" TV. That's 0.5" larger than the Sony XBR-65X900 (64.5""). 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.

77% lighter Edit
The LG 65UF9500 is a 25.5kgg heavy TV. That's 19.5g lighter than the Sony XBR-65X900 (45kgg). Read more

The weight is the total weight of the TV excluding all packaging.

A lighter weight TV will be easier to move around and to mount on a wall. Some of the larger, very heavy TVs may require lightweight partition walls to be reinforced before the TV could be mounted.

User reviews are appreciably better
Based on 54 user reviews, the LG 65UF9500 has an average review score of 91%, however the Sony XBR-65X900 has an average rating of 80% (based on 1 review).
6 Reasons For
Significantly faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Sony XBR-65X900 has a motion interpolation frequency of 960HzHz, whereas the LG 65UF9500 is only a 240HzHz motion interpolation frequency TV (720Hz slower). Read more

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. Motion interpolation technology can sometimes create some unwanted side effects such glitches when the technology suddenly activates during an action scene. Most modern TVs will have an option to switch off the motion interpolation if it is not desired.

A faster motion interpolation frequency will result in smoother action scenes, less motion blur and a more life like image.

Higher RMS rated power Edit
The Sony XBR-65X900 is a 65WW RMS rated power TV. That's 5W higher than the LG 65UF9500 (65WW). Read more

RMS rated power stands for Root Mean Square rated power and it is typically used to measure the power output of the audio element of the TV.

A higher RMS rated power means that the audio system on the TV is more powerful and will be able to play the audio at higher volumes. A higher RMS power may also result in better quality audio at normal volume levels.

One more composite video in port Edit
The Sony XBR-65X900 has two composite video in ports, however the LG 65UF9500 only has one composite video in port. Read more

A composite video port is mainly used for connecting older devices to the TV, such as older video cameras or video recorders. Composite video connections can only display images up to a resolutionsof 640 x 480 pixels so the quality of image displayed via a composite video connection will be quite low.

Multiple composite video ports will allow you to connect more than one older video device. However it is very unlikely that you will use the composite video port at all.

One more USB 2.0 port Edit
The Sony XBR-65X900 has three USB 2.0 ports, however the LG 65UF9500 only has two USB 2.0 ports. Read more

USB ports are useful for displaying on your TV photos / videos or playing music that is stored on USB key drives. The USB port can also be used for charging devices from your TV (as long as it's switched on), and for installing software updates on the TV.

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

Cheaper by $951
The Sony XBR-65X900 costs $999.00, whereas the LG 65UF9500 is $1,949.55.
