Reasons For

4 Reasons For
39kWh lower annual energy consumption Edit
The Samsung UE55JU6800 has an annual energy consumption of 118kWhkWh, but the Sony KD-55S8005 is a 157kWh annual energy consumption TV (39kWh higher) and the Sony KD-55S8505 is a 157kWhkWh annual energy consumption TV (39kWh higher). Read more

The annual energy consumption is the total amount of energy that the TV will use over the course of a whole year, given typical usage levels.

A lower annual energy consumption means that it will cost less each year for you to run your TV.

57% thinner Edit
The Samsung UE55JU6800 is a 63.2mmmm thick TV. That's 35.8mm thinner than the Sony KD-55S8005 (99mmmm) and 35.8mm thinner than the Sony KD-55S8505 (99mmmm). 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.

Vastly lighter Edit
The Samsung UE55JU6800 has a weight of 16.6kgg, however the Sony KD-55S8005 is a 22.9kg heavy TV (22.9kg heavier) and the Sony KD-55S8505 is a 22.9kgg heavy TV (6.3g heavier). 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.

Energy efficiency rating is higher
The Samsung UE55JU6800 has an energy efficiency rating of "A+", but the Sony KD-55S8005 has a rating of "A" and the Sony KD-55S8505 has a rating of "A".
1 Reason For
One more composite video in port Edit
The Sony KD-55S8005 is a two composite video in port TV, whereas the Sony KD-55S8505 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.

2 Reasons For
Faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Sony KD-55S8505 is an 800HzHz motion interpolation frequency TV. That's 799Hz faster than the Samsung UE55JU6800 (800HzHz). 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.

User reviews are better
The Sony KD-55S8505 has an average user review score of 100%, however the Samsung UE55JU6800 has an average rating of 85% (based on 8 reviews) and the Sony KD-55S8005 has an average rating of 93% (based on 19 reviews).
