Reasons For

5 Reasons For
Thinner Edit
Samsung UN60JU7100 is 55.88mm thick. That's 22.12mm 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.

2.7kg lighter Edit
The Samsung UN60JU7100 is a 21.4kg heavy TV, whereas the Sony XBR-65X850 is a 24.1kg heavy TV (2.7kg 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 $439
The Samsung UN60JU7100 costs $439.01 less than the Sony XBR-65X850.
66% cheaper to run
Over five years the Samsung UN60JU7100 only costs $104.96 to run but the Sony XBR-65X850 costs $313.07 to run (198% more). Read more
Vastly better user reviews
Based on 1 user review, the average review score of the Samsung UN60JU7100 is 100%, however the average rating of the Sony XBR-65X850 is 80% (based on 1 review).
3 Reasons For
7% larger display diagonal Edit
The Sony XBR-65X850 is a 64.5" TV. That's 4.5" larger than the Samsung UN60JU7100 (64.5"). 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.

Two composite video ins Edit
The number of composite video ins on the Sony XBR-65X850 is two, but the Samsung UN60JU7100 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.

Available from 12 shops
A greater number of stores increases the price competition amongst retailers for this TV and also increases the chances of the product remaining in stock.
