Reasons For

1 Reason For
A little larger display diagonal Edit
The LG 79UF9500 has a display diagonal of 79", however the Sony XBR-75X940 is only a 75" TV (4" smaller). 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.

4 Reasons For
1,200Hz faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Sony XBR-75X940 has a motion interpolation frequency of 1,440Hz, whereas the LG 79UF9500 is only a 240Hz motion interpolation frequency TV (1,200Hz 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.

62% higher RMS rated power Edit
The Sony XBR-75X940 is a 90W RMS rated power TV. That's 55W higher than the LG 79UF9500 (90W). 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.

Cheaper by $300
The Sony XBR-75X940 costs $2,700.00, whereas the LG 79UF9500 is $2,999.52.
