Reasons For

4 Reasons For
Faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Samsung UN50KU6300 is a 120Hz motion interpolation frequency TV, and so does the Sony XBR-65X850. That's 60Hz faster than the Sony XBR-55X700 (120Hz). 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.

Thinner Edit
Samsung UN50KU6300 is 63.5mm thick, but the Sony XBR-55X700 is a 77.9mm thick TV (14.4mm thicker) and the Sony XBR-65X850 is a 78mm thick TV (14.5mm 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.

$50 cheaper
The Samsung UN50KU6300 costs $50 less than the Sony XBR-55X700 and costs $249.01 less than the Sony XBR-65X850.
78% cheaper to run
The Samsung UN50KU6300 is $140.60 cheaper to run than the Sony XBR-55X700 and $256.11 cheaper to run than the Sony XBR-65X850 over five years. Read more
No data 6 Reasons For
24% larger display diagonal Edit
The Sony XBR-65X850 is a 64.5" TV. That's 15" larger than the Samsung UN50KU6300 (64.5") and 9.5" larger than the Sony XBR-55X700 (64.5"). 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.

3D Edit
The Sony XBR-65X850 is a 3D TV, however the Samsung UN50KU6300 and the Sony XBR-55X700 are not 3D. Read more

‘3D’ describes whether the TV can display 3D movies and programmes. Requires compatible 3D glasses to properly function.

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. 3D compatible TVs allow you to watch 3D content. For most TVs you will need to wear special glasses to see the 3D effect.

50% faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
