Reasons For

2 Reasons For
Slightly larger screen size Edit
The Sharp LC-80UH30 has a screen size of 80", whereas the Sony XBR-75X940 is only a 75"" TV (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.

Faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Sharp LC-80UH30 has a motion interpolation frequency of 960Hz, but the Sony XBR-75X940 is only a 1,440HzHz motion interpolation frequency TV (959Hz 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.

4 Reasons For
Higher RMS rated power Edit
The Sony XBR-75X940 is a 90WW RMS rated power TV. That's 55W higher than the Sharp LC-80UH30 (90WW). 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.

Four more loudspeakers Edit
The Sony XBR-75X940 is a six loudspeaker TV, whereas the Sharp LC-80UH30 only has two loudspeakers. Read more

The number of loudspeakers is the total number of speakers provided with the TV, either inside the TV casing or as external speakers.

A greater number of speakers will allow for better quality audio and different frequencies. Multiple external speakers will enable to the TV to play surround sound audio.

One more composite video in port Edit
The number of composite video in ports on the Sony XBR-75X940 is two, but the Sharp LC-80UH30 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.

Cheaper by $3,899
The Sony XBR-75X940 is $3,899.01 cheaper than the Sharp LC-80UH30.

Reasons Against
