Reasons For

2 Reasons For
Hugely thinner Edit
LG 65UF8600 is 50.8mm thick, but the Sony XBR-65X930 is a 90mm thick TV (39.2mm thicker). 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.

52% lighter Edit
The LG 65UF8600 is a 31.3kg heavy TV. That's 16kg lighter than the Sony XBR-65X930 (47.3kg). 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.

10 Reasons For
Slightly larger display diagonal Edit
The Sony XBR-65X930 has a display diagonal of 65", but the LG 65UF8600 is only a 64.5" TV (0.5" smaller). 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.

Vastly faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Sony XBR-65X930 has a motion interpolation frequency of 1,440Hz, however the LG 65UF8600 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. 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.

Higher RMS rated power Edit
The Sony XBR-65X930 is a 90W RMS rated power TV. That's 70W higher than the LG 65UF8600 (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.

Four more number of loudspeakerss Edit
The Sony XBR-65X930 is a six number of loudspeakers TV, whereas the LG 65UF8600 only has two number of loudspeakerss. Read more

The number of loudspeakers is the total number of speakers provided with the TV, either inside the TV casing or as external speakers.

A greater number of speakers will allow for better quality audio and different frequencies. Multiple external speakers will enable to the TV to play surround sound audio.

One more composite video in Edit
The number of composite video ins on the Sony XBR-65X930 is two, but the LG 65UF8600 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.

One more USB 2.0 ports quantity Edit
The number of USB 2.0 ports quantitys on the Sony XBR-65X930 is three, but the LG 65UF8600 only has two USB 2.0 ports quantitys. Read more

More USB ports will allow you to connect more USB devices to the TV simultaneously without needing to continuous plug in and unplug cables.

Four HDMI ports quantitys Edit
The Sony XBR-65X930 is a four HDMI ports quantity TV, whereas the LG 65UF8600 only has three HDMI ports quantitys. Read more

The HDMI ports quantity is the number of ports that the TV has that will accept a HDMI cable. HDMI is the most common type of cable used to connect modern TVs, DVD players, games consoles etc.

A greater number of HDMI ports will allow you to permanently connect more devices to the TV and will reduce the need to reach around the back of the TV to unplug and plug in cables when switching between devices.
