Reasons For

3 Reasons For
Thinner Edit
Samsung UN65J6300 is 71.12mm thick. That's 6.88mm thinner than the Sony XBR-65X850 (78mm). 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.

75% cheaper to run
Over five years the Samsung UN65J6300 only costs $79.21 to run but the Sony XBR-65X850 costs $313.07 to run (295% more). Read more
Much better user reviews
Based on 105 user reviews, the average review score of the Samsung UN65J6300 is 91%, however the average rating of the Sony XBR-65X850 is 80% (based on 1 review).
4 Reasons For
One more composite video in Edit
The Sony XBR-65X850 has two composite video ins, however the Samsung UN65J6300 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.

1.4kg lighter Edit
The Sony XBR-65X850 has a weight of 24.1kg, however the Samsung UN65J6300 is a 25.5kg heavy TV (1.4kg 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 $540
The Sony XBR-65X850 costs $879.00, whereas the Samsung UN65J6300 is $1,419.00.
14 shops are selling it
The more shops stock the product, the greater competition amongst shops to keep prices low.
