Reasons For

3 Reasons For
Larger display diagonal Edit
The Samsung UN60J6300 is a 60" TV. That's 5" larger than the Sony XBR-55X850 (55"). Read more

‘Display Diagonal’ is the measure of the size of the TV screen from top-left to bottom-right corner, 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. TVs with a bigger display diagonal allow you to make the most of HD content and are great for watching movies. 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.

70% cheaper to run
The Samsung UN60J6300 is $179.06 cheaper to run than the Sony XBR-55X850 over five years. Read more
User reviews are better
Based on 11 reviews, the Samsung UN60J6300 has an average user review score of 69%, however the Sony XBR-55X850 has an average rating of 60% (based on 1 review).
3 Reasons For
3D Edit
The Sony XBR-55X850 is 3D, whereas the Samsung UN60J6300 is not 3D. Read more

‘3D’ describes whether the TV can display 3D movies and programmes. Requires compatible 3D glasses to properly function.

3D technology has become increasingly popular as the amount of 3D film and TV content has increased dramatically in recent years. All 3D TVs will also display regular 2D content and most will allow you to switch on and off the 3D effect on 3D content. 3D compatible TVs allow you to watch 3D content. For most TVs you will need to wear special glasses to see the 3D effect.

840Hz faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Sony XBR-55X850 has a motion interpolation frequency of 960Hz, but the Samsung UN60J6300 is only a 120Hz motion interpolation frequency TV (840Hz 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.

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

Thinner Edit
Sony XBR-55X850 is 59.94mm thick. That's 3.56mm thinner than the Samsung UN60J6300 (59.94mm). 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.
