Reasons For

2 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

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.

70% cheaper to run
The Samsung UN60J6300 is $169.55 cheaper to run than the Sony XBR-55X850 over five years. Read more
9 Reasons For
3D Edit
The Sony XBR-55X850 is 3D, whereas the Samsung UN60J6300 is not 3D. Read more

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. Most 3D TVs require you to wear special 3D glasses in order to view the content in 3D, however some of the newer 3D TVs require no 3D glasses at all. Of those TVs that do require glasses, there are two main types of 3D technology: passive and active. Passive 3D uses glasses similar to those that you wear in the cinema. The glasses have polarised lenses which ensure that the correct image is displayed to each eye. The main advantage of passive 3D is that the glasses are very light and comfortable to wear, but it can result in a less bright image. Active 3D uses battery powered glasses which control active shutters in each lens. These shutters constantly open and close very quickly in sync with two different images that are being displayed by the TV. This ensures that the correct image is displayed to each eye. The main advantage of active 3D is that the image is brighter, however the glasses are heavier and more expensive.

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. 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.

Three RF ports quantitys Edit
The number of RF ports quantitys on the Sony XBR-55X850 is three, but the Samsung UN60J6300 only has two RF ports quantitys. Read more

RF stands for Radio Frequency and an RF port is an older type of input connector for TVs which is most commonly use for connecting cable TV and satellite TV feeds directly to the TV.

Multiple RF ports will allow you to connect multiple RF feeds to the TV at the same time. For example, if the TV has a built in satellite TV decoder then you could connect 2 different satellite dishes to the TV.

One more composite video in Edit
The Sony XBR-55X850 is a two composite video in TV, whereas the Samsung UN60J6300 only has one composite video in. 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.

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.

3.6kg lighter Edit
The Sony XBR-55X850 is a 19.9kg heavy TV, whereas the Samsung UN60J6300 is a 23.5kg heavy TV (3.6kg 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.

Cheaper by $371
The Sony XBR-55X850 costs $370.96 less than the Samsung UN60J6300.
11 shops are selling it
A greater number of sellers increases the chances of the product remaining in stock and also increases the price competition amongst retailers for this TV.
Much better user reviews
Based on 2 reviews, the average user review score of the Sony XBR-55X850 is 80%, however the average rating of the Samsung UN60J6300 is 69% (based on 11 reviews).
