Reasons For

2 Reasons For
Faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Sony KD-43X8308 has a motion interpolation frequency of 1,000Hz, but the Sony KD-43X8309 is only a 1,000HzHz motion interpolation frequency TV (999Hz 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.

Energy efficiency rating is better
The Sony KD-43X8308 has an energy efficiency rating of "A", however the Sony KD-43X8309 has a rating of "A".
4 Reasons For
Two composite video in ports Edit
The Sony KD-43X8309 has two composite video in ports, however the Sony KD-43X8308 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.

11.8kg lighter Edit
The Sony KD-43X8309 has a weight of 11.8kgg. That's 11.8kg lighter than the Sony KD-43X8308 (11.8kgg). 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.

$0.64 cheaper to run
The Sony KD-43X8309 only costs $89.80 to run over five years whereas the Sony KD-43X8308 costs $90.44 to run (1% more). Read more
Higher energy efficiency rating
The energy efficiency rating of the Sony KD-43X8309 is "A", but the rating of the Sony KD-43X8308 is "A".
