10 Reasons For for Choosing the LG 55LW5600

Vastly Thinner

The LG 55LW5600 has a thickness of 29.9, however the LG 50LB5800 is a 55.8mm thick TV (25.9mm thicker), the Sceptre X508BVFHD is a 104mm thick TV (74.1mm thicker), the Sony KDL60W630B is an 84.5mm thick TV (54.6mm thicker) and the Sony XBR65X900F is a 60mm thick TV (30.1mm thicker). More ...

The thickness of a 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.

Faster High Frequency Rate

The LG 55LW5600 is a 120 refresh rate TV. That's 60Hz faster than the Sceptre X508BVFHD (60Hz). More ...

The refresh rate (also known as the high frequency rate) is the number of times that the image on the screen is refreshed per second. It affects how smoothly motion on the screen appears.

Action will appear smoother on TVs with a higher frequency rate: a TV with a high frequency rate of 30Hz refreshes the image on the screen once every 30 times every second. However a TV with a high frequency rate of 60Hz would refresh the image on the screen 60 times every second which means that action scenes would appear smoother.

Vastly Faster Response Time

The LG 55LW5600 has a response time of 2.6, however the Sceptre X508BVFHD is an 8ms response time TV (5.4ms slower). More ...

'Response Time' is the measure of how long it takes an individual pixel to move from active to inactive - therefore how fast it takes the TV to respond to the signal it's receiving and display it on the screen.

Slow response times on a TV mean that signals on fast moving images (such as video games or sports) could clash together, creating blurry images as several slightly different signals attempt to be displayed at once. A TV with faster response times can therefore display fast-moving images sharply and cleanly.

3D

The LG 55LW5600 is a 3D TV (as are the LG 50LB5800, the Sony KDL60W630B and the Sony XBR65X900F), but the Sceptre X508BVFHD is not. 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.

Wi-Fi

The LG 55LW5600 supports Wi-Fi (as do the LG 50LB5800, the Sony KDL60W630B and the Sony XBR65X900F), but the Sceptre X508BVFHD does not support this feature. More ...

A Wifi (wireless LAN connection) on your TV means that you can connect your TV directly to your WiFi network.

A wifi connection means that connecting your TV to the net will be easier and can be done without cables.

Ethernet Port

The LG 55LW5600 has an ethernet port, and so do the Sony KDL60W630B and the Sony XBR65X900F, whereas the LG 50LB5800 and the Sceptre X508BVFHD do not. More ...

An ethernet port lets you connect the TV directly to your router with an ethernet cable.

An ethernet connection is more reliable than wifi and is useful if you do not have a wiki network or the wifi signal is weak. Depending on the speed of your wifi network and ethernet connection may be faster than wifi which means less buffering when streaming content to the TV.

Two More Awards

The LG 55LW5600 has received 2 awards, but the LG 50LB5800 has received no awards, the Sceptre X508BVFHD has received no awards, the Sony KDL60W630B has received no awards and the Sony XBR65X900F has received no awards.

Expert Reviews Are Appreciably Better

Based on 22 reviews, the average expert review score of the LG 55LW5600 is 79%, whereas the average rating of the LG 50LB5800 is 67% (based on 4 reviews).

User Reviews Are Appreciably Better

Based on 11 reviews, the average user review score of the LG 55LW5600 is 95%, whereas the average rating of the LG 50LB5800 is 80% (based on 2 reviews).

Better Brand

LG TVs have an average rating of 95%, but Sceptre only has an average rating of 74.7% and Sony only has an average rating of 85.6%.

6 Reasons Against for Choosing the LG 55LW5600

Only Full Hd

The LG 55LW5600 is full hd, and so are the LG 50LB5800, the Sceptre X508BVFHD and the Sony KDL60W630B, which is 4 times lower display resolution of the Sony XBR65X900F (4K). More ...

HD Type on a TV refers to the type of high definition image that the TV is capable of displaying (e.g. Full HD, 4K Ultra HD).

The better the HD type the better the image resolution and the perceived sharpness of the image will be. Images will appear more life like and realistic. This will be more noticeable on a TV with a larger display diagonal.

Smaller Display Diagonal

The LG 55LW5600 is a 55 TV. That's 5" larger than the LG 50LB5800 and the Sceptre X508BVFHD (50"), 5" smaller than the Sony KDL60W630B (60") and 9.5" smaller than the Sony XBR65X900F (64.5"). 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 are viewing from a distance of 6ft (72 inches) you would need a TV display diagonal of 60 inches.

Worse Kagoo Score

The LG 55LW5600 has received a Kagoo Score of 77, whereas the LG 50LB5800 scored 82 and the Sony XBR65X900F scored 80.

$1,055 More Expensive

The LG 55LW5600 is more expensive than the LG 50LB5800 by $996, more expensive than the Sceptre X508BVFHD by $1,055, more expensive than the Sony KDL60W630B by $896 and more expensive than the Sony XBR65X900F by $546.

Fewer Sellers

Only 1 seller sell the LG 55LW5600, but 5 shops sell the Sony XBR65X900F. More ...

The smaller the number of retailers that stock this TV, the lower the competition amongst retailers to keep prices low.
Over Three Years Older

The LG 55LW5600 is older than the LG 50LB5800 by three years, older than the Sceptre X508BVFHD by three years, older than the Sony KDL60W630B by three years and older than the Sony XBR65X900F by four years.

The LG 55LW5600 is 1,293mm wide, 785mm tall, 29.9mm thick and weighs 22kg.

9 Reasons For for Choosing the Sony KDL60W630B

Auto Volume Leveler

The Sony KDL60W630B has an auto volume leveler, and so does the Sony XBR65X900F, however the LG 50LB5800, the LG 55LW5600 and the Sceptre X508BVFHD do not. More ...

An auto-volume leveler on your TV is a system to automatically adjust the volume on your TV to provide a consistent acceptable volume level across multiple inputs and programs.

An auto-volume leveler system on your TV will stop the volume from accidentally being set too low or too high for a movie or programme, making the sound more even across the board.

3D

The Sony KDL60W630B is 3D, and so are the LG 50LB5800, the LG 55LW5600 and the Sony XBR65X900F, whereas the Sceptre X508BVFHD is not. 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.

Parental Controls

The Sony KDL60W630B supports parental controls (as do the Sceptre X508BVFHD and the Sony XBR65X900F), but the LG 50LB5800 and the LG 55LW5600 do not support this feature. More ...

Parental controls on a TV allow users to limit the films and programs that can be viewed on the TV, preventing adults-only content from being viewed by children.

Parental controls are a good way of stopping children accidentally (or totally not-accidentally) watching violent or sexual programs when parents aren't around to stop them.

Game Mode

The Sony KDL60W630B has a game mode (as does the Sony XBR65X900F), but the LG 50LB5800, the LG 55LW5600 and the Sceptre X508BVFHD do not have this feature. More ...

'Game Mode' on a TV is a specialist mode that scales down the graphical fidelity of the video in order to free up processing power for response time.

In effect this trades slightly worse graphical capabilities for lessened input lag, meaning a smoother, more responsive experience when gaming.

Noise Reduction

The Sony KDL60W630B supports noise reduction (as do the Sceptre X508BVFHD and the Sony XBR65X900F), however the LG 50LB5800 and the LG 55LW5600 do not support this feature. More ...

Noise reduction helps reduce intrusive audio and visual noise for a clearer and better viewing experience.

Wi-Fi

The Sony KDL60W630B supports Wi-Fi, and so do the LG 50LB5800, the LG 55LW5600 and the Sony XBR65X900F, whereas the Sceptre X508BVFHD does not. More ...

A Wifi (wireless LAN connection) on your TV means that you can connect your TV directly to your WiFi network.

A wifi connection means that connecting your TV to the net will be easier and can be done without cables.

Ethernet Port

The Sony KDL60W630B has an ethernet port (as do the LG 55LW5600 and the Sony XBR65X900F), however the LG 50LB5800 and the Sceptre X508BVFHD do not have this feature. More ...

An ethernet port lets you connect the TV directly to your router with an ethernet cable.

An ethernet connection is more reliable than wifi and is useful if you do not have a wiki network or the wifi signal is weak. Depending on the speed of your wifi network and ethernet connection may be faster than wifi which means less buffering when streaming content to the TV.

Wi-Fi Direct

The Sony KDL60W630B supports Wi-Fi Direct (as do the LG 50LB5800 and the Sony XBR65X900F), but the LG 55LW5600 and the Sceptre X508BVFHD do not support this feature. More ...

Wi-Fi Direct is a system to allow your TV to connect directly to other device without requiring a wireless router as a go-between.

Wi-Fi Direct is helpful on a TV because it allows a TV to connect to another device (such as a computer or phone) directly, meaning there is far less setup required - the devices just need to be 'paired' (normally at a press of a button) and the y can transfer data between each other. This is extremely useful for streaming media onto your TV from a computer or phone.

Desktop Stand Included

The Sony KDL60W630B has a desktop stand included (as do the LG 50LB5800, the Sceptre X508BVFHD and the Sony XBR65X900F), however the LG 55LW5600 does not have this feature. More ...

Whether the TV has a desktop stand included with the purchase.

A desktop stand allows you to mount the TV on a desk or table for easy viewing. Without one, you'll have to either mount the TV on a wall or buy a stand at additional expense.

10 Reasons Against for Choosing the Sony KDL60W630B

Lower Display Resolution

The Sony KDL60W630B is full hd (as are the LG 50LB5800, the LG 55LW5600 and the Sceptre X508BVFHD), whereas the Sony XBR65X900F is 4K. More ...

HD Type on a TV refers to the type of high definition image that the TV is capable of displaying (e.g. Full HD, 4K Ultra HD).

The better the HD type the better the image resolution and the perceived sharpness of the image will be. Images will appear more life like and realistic. This will be more noticeable on a TV with a larger display diagonal.

4.5" Smaller Display Diagonal

The Sony KDL60W630B has a display diagonal of 60, whereas the LG 50LB5800 and the Sceptre X508BVFHD are both 50" TVs (10" smaller), the LG 55LW5600 is a 55" TV (5" smaller) and the Sony XBR65X900F is a 64.5" TV (4.5" larger). 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 are viewing from a distance of 6ft (72 inches) you would need a TV display diagonal of 60 inches.

Thicker

Sony KDL60W630B is 84.5 thick. That's 28.7mm thicker than the LG 50LB5800 (55.8mm), 54.6mm thicker than the LG 55LW5600 (29.9mm), 19.5mm thinner than the Sceptre X508BVFHD (104mm) and 24.5mm thicker than the Sony XBR65X900F (60mm). More ...

The thickness of a 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.

70% Lower RMS Rated Power

The Sony KDL60W630B is a 20 RMS rated power TV, and so do the LG 50LB5800 and the Sceptre X508BVFHD. That's 45W lower than the Sony XBR65X900F (65W). 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.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Sony KDL60W630B has received a Kagoo Score of 77, however the LG 50LB5800 scored 82 and the Sony XBR65X900F scored 80.

More Expensive by $159

The Sony KDL60W630B is $100 more expensive than the LG 50LB5800 and $159 more expensive than the Sceptre X508BVFHD.

Less Retailers

The Sony KDL60W630B is only stocked by 1 retailer, whereas the Sony XBR65X900F is stocked by 5 shops. More ...

Fewer numbers of sellers reduces the price competition amongst retailers for the product and also reduces the chances of this TV remaining in stock.
Older by 11 Months

The Sony KDL60W630B is one month older than the LG 50LB5800 and 11 months older than the Sony XBR65X900F.

$550 More Expensive to Run Over Five Years

The running costs over five years of the Sony KDL60W630B are $617 which is $550 more than the LG 50LB5800, $475 more than the Sceptre X508BVFHD and $401 more than the Sony XBR65X900F. Show assumptions.

Worse Brand

Sony TVs have an average rating of only 85.6%, whereas LG has an average rating of 95%.

The cheapest price that we could find for the KDL60W630B in the US is $499.00 but in total we found only 1 price for it.

12 Reasons For for Choosing the LG 50LB5800

Timeshift

The LG 50LB5800 supports timeshift, whereas the LG 55LW5600, the Sceptre X508BVFHD, the Sony KDL60W630B and the Sony XBR65X900F do not support this feature. More ...

'Timeshifting' on a TV is the ability to record movies and programs to be viewed or listened to after the live broadcast.

TVs with timeshifting abilities mean that you don't have to watch programs when they are first broadcast - you can record them and watch them at your leisure.

3D

The LG 50LB5800 is a 3D TV (as are the LG 55LW5600, the Sony KDL60W630B and the Sony XBR65X900F), however the Sceptre X508BVFHD is not. 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.

Motion Control

The LG 50LB5800 features motion control, whereas the LG 55LW5600, the Sceptre X508BVFHD, the Sony KDL60W630B and the Sony XBR65X900F do not feature this benefit. More ...

Motion Control on a TV is a system that allows users to control various functions of their TV (volume, channels, etc) purely with various hand motions, rather than having to use the remote.

Motion controls mean that you can control the TV from your couch without having to find a remote or move to manually change the channel or adjust the settings, leading to a more streamlined experience.

Smartphone Remote App

The LG 50LB5800 has a smartphone remote app, but the LG 55LW5600, the Sceptre X508BVFHD, the Sony KDL60W630B and the Sony XBR65X900F do not. More ...

'Smartphone Remote' states whether the TV has the capability to be controlled using your smartphone, acting as a surrogate remote. This will usually require the installation of an app onto your phone.

Using your smartphone as a remote is helpful because it means that you don't have to use the official remote to control the TV - your smartphone will work instead. Helpful since you will quite often already have it in your pocket!

Wi-Fi

The LG 50LB5800 supports Wi-Fi (as do the LG 55LW5600, the Sony KDL60W630B and the Sony XBR65X900F), however the Sceptre X508BVFHD does not support this feature. More ...

A Wifi (wireless LAN connection) on your TV means that you can connect your TV directly to your WiFi network.

A wifi connection means that connecting your TV to the net will be easier and can be done without cables.

Miracast

The LG 50LB5800 supports Miracast (as does the Sony XBR65X900F), whereas the LG 55LW5600, the Sceptre X508BVFHD and the Sony KDL60W630B do not support this feature. More ...

Miracast is a peer-to-peer wireless screencasting standard formed via Wi-Fi Direct connections in a manner similar to Bluetooth.

TVs with Miracast can use it to stream media from computers and mobile phones at very high quality without the need to attach cables first, making the whole process far easier.

Wi-Fi Direct

The LG 50LB5800 supports Wi-Fi Direct, and so do the Sony KDL60W630B and the Sony XBR65X900F, whereas the LG 55LW5600 and the Sceptre X508BVFHD do not. More ...

Wi-Fi Direct is a system to allow your TV to connect directly to other device without requiring a wireless router as a go-between.

Wi-Fi Direct is helpful on a TV because it allows a TV to connect to another device (such as a computer or phone) directly, meaning there is far less setup required - the devices just need to be 'paired' (normally at a press of a button) and the y can transfer data between each other. This is extremely useful for streaming media onto your TV from a computer or phone.

Voice Control

The LG 50LB5800 features voice control, however the LG 55LW5600, the Sceptre X508BVFHD, the Sony KDL60W630B and the Sony XBR65X900F do not. More ...

Voice Control on a TV is a system that allows users to control various functions of their TV (volume, channels, etc) purely with voice commands, rather than having to use the remote.

Voice controls mean that you can control the TV from your couch without having to find a remote or move to manually change the channel or adjust the settings, leading to a more streamlined experience.

Desktop Stand Included

The LG 50LB5800 has a desktop stand included, and so do the Sceptre X508BVFHD, the Sony KDL60W630B and the Sony XBR65X900F, but the LG 55LW5600 does not. More ...

Whether the TV has a desktop stand included with the purchase.

A desktop stand allows you to mount the TV on a desk or table for easy viewing. Without one, you'll have to either mount the TV on a wall or buy a stand at additional expense.

Better Kagoo Score

The LG 50LB5800 has received a Kagoo Score of 82, but the LG 55LW5600 scored 77, the Sceptre X508BVFHD scored 75, the Sony KDL60W630B scored 77 and the Sony XBR65X900F scored 80.

$550 Cheaper to Run Over Five Years

The LG 50LB5800 is $75 cheaper to run than the Sceptre X508BVFHD, $550 cheaper to run than the Sony KDL60W630B and $149 cheaper to run than the Sony XBR65X900F over five years. More ...

Better Brand

LG TVs have an average rating of 95%, however Sceptre only has an average rating of 74.7% and Sony only has an average rating of 85.6%.

10 Reasons Against for Choosing the LG 50LB5800

4 Times Lower Display Resolution

The LG 50LB5800 is full hd, and so are the LG 55LW5600, the Sceptre X508BVFHD and the Sony KDL60W630B, which is 4 times lower display resolution of the Sony XBR65X900F (4K). More ...

HD Type on a TV refers to the type of high definition image that the TV is capable of displaying (e.g. Full HD, 4K Ultra HD).

The better the HD type the better the image resolution and the perceived sharpness of the image will be. Images will appear more life like and realistic. This will be more noticeable on a TV with a larger display diagonal.

23% Smaller Display Diagonal

The LG 50LB5800 is a 50 TV, and so does the Sceptre X508BVFHD. That's 5" smaller than the LG 55LW5600 (55"), 10" smaller than the Sony KDL60W630B (60") and 14.5" smaller than the Sony XBR65X900F (64.5"). 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 are viewing from a distance of 6ft (72 inches) you would need a TV display diagonal of 60 inches.

A Lot Thicker

The LG 50LB5800 is a 55.8 thick TV, whereas the LG 55LW5600 is a 29.9mm thick TV (25.9mm thinner), the Sceptre X508BVFHD is a 104mm thick TV (48.2mm thicker), the Sony KDL60W630B is an 84.5mm thick TV (28.7mm thicker) and the Sony XBR65X900F is a 60mm thick TV (4.2mm thicker). More ...

The thickness of a 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.

45W Lower RMS Rated Power

The LG 50LB5800 has an RMS rated power of 20 (as do the Sceptre X508BVFHD and the Sony KDL60W630B), whereas the Sony XBR65X900F is a 65W RMS rated power TV (45W higher). 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.

Does Not Have an Ethernet Port

The LG 50LB5800 does not have an ethernet port (As does the the Sceptre X508BVFHD), whereas the LG 55LW5600, the Sony KDL60W630B and the Sony XBR65X900F have this feature. More ...

An ethernet port lets you connect the TV directly to your router with an ethernet cable.

An ethernet connection is more reliable than wifi and is useful if you do not have a wiki network or the wifi signal is weak. Depending on the speed of your wifi network and ethernet connection may be faster than wifi which means less buffering when streaming content to the TV.

$59 More Expensive

The LG 50LB5800 is more expensive than the Sceptre X508BVFHD by $59.

Not As Many Stockists

Only 1 shop sell the LG 50LB5800, however 5 sellers sell the Sony XBR65X900F. More ...

Smaller numbers of retailers reduces the chances of this TV remaining in stock and also reduces the price competition amongst retailers for the product.
10 Months Older

The LG 50LB5800 is older than the Sony XBR65X900F by 10 months.

Appreciably Lower Expert Review Score

The LG 50LB5800 only has an average expert rating of 67%, but the LG 55LW5600 has an average expert rating of 79% (based on 22 reviews).

Appreciably Lower User Review Score

The LG 50LB5800 has an average user rating of 80%, but the LG 55LW5600 has an average user rating of 95% (based on 11 reviews).

The cheapest price that we could find for the 50LB5800 in the US is $399.00 but in total we found only 1 price for it.

4 Reasons For for Choosing the Sceptre X508BVFHD

Parental Controls

The Sceptre X508BVFHD supports parental controls, and so do the Sony KDL60W630B and the Sony XBR65X900F, whereas the LG 50LB5800 and the LG 55LW5600 do not. More ...

Parental controls on a TV allow users to limit the films and programs that can be viewed on the TV, preventing adults-only content from being viewed by children.

Parental controls are a good way of stopping children accidentally (or totally not-accidentally) watching violent or sexual programs when parents aren't around to stop them.

Noise Reduction

The Sceptre X508BVFHD supports noise reduction, and so do the Sony KDL60W630B and the Sony XBR65X900F, but the LG 50LB5800 and the LG 55LW5600 do not. More ...

Noise reduction helps reduce intrusive audio and visual noise for a clearer and better viewing experience.

Desktop Stand Included

The Sceptre X508BVFHD has a desktop stand included, and so do the LG 50LB5800, the Sony KDL60W630B and the Sony XBR65X900F, but the LG 55LW5600 does not. More ...

Whether the TV has a desktop stand included with the purchase.

A desktop stand allows you to mount the TV on a desk or table for easy viewing. Without one, you'll have to either mount the TV on a wall or buy a stand at additional expense.

$59 Cheaper

The Sceptre X508BVFHD costs $340.00, whereas the LG 50LB5800 is $399.00, the LG 55LW5600 is $1,395.00, the Sony KDL60W630B is $499.00 and the Sony XBR65X900F is $849.00.

14 Reasons Against for Choosing the Sceptre X508BVFHD

4 Times Lower Display Resolution

The Sceptre X508BVFHD is full hd, and so are the LG 50LB5800, the LG 55LW5600 and the Sony KDL60W630B, which is 4 times lower display resolution of the Sony XBR65X900F (4K). More ...

HD Type on a TV refers to the type of high definition image that the TV is capable of displaying (e.g. Full HD, 4K Ultra HD).

The better the HD type the better the image resolution and the perceived sharpness of the image will be. Images will appear more life like and realistic. This will be more noticeable on a TV with a larger display diagonal.

23% Smaller Display Diagonal

‘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.

So if you are viewing from a distance of 6ft (72 inches) you would need a TV display diagonal of 60 inches.

74.1mm Thicker

The Sceptre X508BVFHD is a 104 thick TV, whereas the LG 50LB5800 is a 55.8mm thick TV (48.2mm thinner), the LG 55LW5600 is a 29.9mm thick TV (74.1mm thinner), the Sony KDL60W630B is an 84.5mm thick TV (19.5mm thinner) and the Sony XBR65X900F is a 60mm thick TV (44mm thinner). More ...

The thickness of a 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% Slower High Frequency Rate

Sceptre X508BVFHD is only 60 refresh rate. That's 60Hz slower than the LG 55LW5600 (120Hz). More ...

The refresh rate (also known as the high frequency rate) is the number of times that the image on the screen is refreshed per second. It affects how smoothly motion on the screen appears.

Action will appear smoother on TVs with a higher frequency rate: a TV with a high frequency rate of 30Hz refreshes the image on the screen once every 30 times every second. However a TV with a high frequency rate of 60Hz would refresh the image on the screen 60 times every second which means that action scenes would appear smoother.

5.4ms Slower Response Time

The Sceptre X508BVFHD has a response time of 8, whereas the LG 55LW5600 is a 2.6ms response time TV (5.4ms faster). More ...

'Response Time' is the measure of how long it takes an individual pixel to move from active to inactive - therefore how fast it takes the TV to respond to the signal it's receiving and display it on the screen.

Slow response times on a TV mean that signals on fast moving images (such as video games or sports) could clash together, creating blurry images as several slightly different signals attempt to be displayed at once. A TV with faster response times can therefore display fast-moving images sharply and cleanly.

Significantly Lower RMS Rated Power

The Sceptre X508BVFHD has an RMS rated power of 20 (as do the LG 50LB5800 and the Sony KDL60W630B), whereas the Sony XBR65X900F is a 65W RMS rated power TV (45W higher). 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.

Not 3D

The Sceptre X508BVFHD is not 3D, but the LG 50LB5800, the LG 55LW5600, the Sony KDL60W630B and the Sony XBR65X900F are. 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.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The Sceptre X508BVFHD does not support Wi-Fi, but the LG 50LB5800, the LG 55LW5600, the Sony KDL60W630B and the Sony XBR65X900F do. More ...

A Wifi (wireless LAN connection) on your TV means that you can connect your TV directly to your WiFi network.

A wifi connection means that connecting your TV to the net will be easier and can be done without cables.

Does Not Have an Ethernet Port

The Sceptre X508BVFHD does not have an ethernet port (As does the the LG 50LB5800), whereas the LG 55LW5600, the Sony KDL60W630B and the Sony XBR65X900F have this feature. More ...

An ethernet connection is more reliable than wifi and is useful if you do not have a wiki network or the wifi signal is weak. Depending on the speed of your wifi network and ethernet connection may be faster than wifi which means less buffering when streaming content to the TV.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Sceptre X508BVFHD has received a Kagoo Score of 75, but the LG 50LB5800 scored 82, the LG 55LW5600 scored 77, the Sony KDL60W630B scored 77 and the Sony XBR65X900F scored 80.

Not As Many Stockists

Only 1 store sell the Sceptre X508BVFHD, however 5 sellers sell the Sony XBR65X900F. More ...

Smaller numbers of stores reduces the chances of this TV remaining in stock and also reduces the price competition amongst retailers for the product.
Over One Year Older

The Sceptre X508BVFHD is older than the LG 50LB5800 by six months, older than the Sony KDL60W630B by five months and older than the Sony XBR65X900F by 16 months.

More Expensive to Run Over Five Years by 111%

Over five years the running costs of the Sceptre X508BVFHD are $142 which is $75 more than the LG 50LB5800. Show assumptions.

Worse Brand

Sceptre TVs have an average rating of only 74.7%, however LG has an average rating of 95% and Sony has an average rating of 85.6%.

The Sceptre X508BVFHD is 1,168mm wide, 711.2mm tall, 104mm thick and weighs 19.3kg.

19 Reasons For for Choosing the Sony XBR65X900F

Higher Display Resolution

The Sony XBR65X900F is 4K, whereas the LG 50LB5800, the LG 55LW5600, the Sceptre X508BVFHD and the Sony KDL60W630B are all only full hd. More ...

HD Type on a TV refers to the type of high definition image that the TV is capable of displaying (e.g. Full HD, 4K Ultra HD).

The better the HD type the better the image resolution and the perceived sharpness of the image will be. Images will appear more life like and realistic. This will be more noticeable on a TV with a larger display diagonal.

14.5" Larger Display Diagonal

The Sony XBR65X900F has a display diagonal of 64.5, whereas the LG 50LB5800 and the Sceptre X508BVFHD are both only 50" TVs (14.5" smaller), the LG 55LW5600 is only a 55" TV (9.5" smaller) and the Sony KDL60W630B is only a 60" TV (4.5" smaller). 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 are viewing from a distance of 6ft (72 inches) you would need a TV display diagonal of 60 inches.

Built-in Subwoofer

The Sony XBR65X900F has a built-in subwoofer, however the LG 50LB5800, the LG 55LW5600, the Sceptre X508BVFHD and the Sony KDL60W630B do not have this feature. More ...

A subwoofer is a specialised bass speaker for your TV, designed to provide punchy and powerful low notes for music and movies. Alternatively, an underground dog.

A built-in subwoofer will give your TV's sound system a serious boost on the low end bass notes. This will be best experienced in the bangs, thumps and explosions of movies, or in bass-heavy music.

Auto Volume Leveler

The Sony XBR65X900F has an auto volume leveler, and so does the Sony KDL60W630B, however the LG 50LB5800, the LG 55LW5600 and the Sceptre X508BVFHD do not. More ...

An auto-volume leveler on your TV is a system to automatically adjust the volume on your TV to provide a consistent acceptable volume level across multiple inputs and programs.

An auto-volume leveler system on your TV will stop the volume from accidentally being set too low or too high for a movie or programme, making the sound more even across the board.

Higher RMS Rated Power

The Sony XBR65X900F is a 65 RMS rated power TV. That's 45W higher than the LG 50LB5800, the Sceptre X508BVFHD and the Sony KDL60W630B (20W). 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.

Screen Mirroring

The Sony XBR65X900F supports screen mirroring, but the LG 50LB5800, the LG 55LW5600, the Sceptre X508BVFHD and the Sony KDL60W630B do not. More ...

Screen Mirroring on a TV is a system that allows you to view the screen from a computer or mobile phone on your TV.

Screen mirroring on a TV is helpful because it allows you to easily display media and info running on a phone or laptop to a big screen for easy viewing with a minimum of effort.

3D

The Sony XBR65X900F is 3D, and so are the LG 50LB5800, the LG 55LW5600 and the Sony KDL60W630B, whereas the Sceptre X508BVFHD is not. 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.

Parental Controls

The Sony XBR65X900F supports parental controls (as do the Sceptre X508BVFHD and the Sony KDL60W630B), but the LG 50LB5800 and the LG 55LW5600 do not support this feature. More ...

Parental controls on a TV allow users to limit the films and programs that can be viewed on the TV, preventing adults-only content from being viewed by children.

Parental controls are a good way of stopping children accidentally (or totally not-accidentally) watching violent or sexual programs when parents aren't around to stop them.

Game Mode

The Sony XBR65X900F has a game mode (as does the Sony KDL60W630B), but the LG 50LB5800, the LG 55LW5600 and the Sceptre X508BVFHD do not have this feature. More ...

'Game Mode' on a TV is a specialist mode that scales down the graphical fidelity of the video in order to free up processing power for response time.

In effect this trades slightly worse graphical capabilities for lessened input lag, meaning a smoother, more responsive experience when gaming.

Local Dimming

The Sony XBR65X900F features local dimming, but the LG 50LB5800, the LG 55LW5600, the Sceptre X508BVFHD and the Sony KDL60W630B do not. More ...

'Local Dimming' on a TV is a function that dims certain sections of the backlight to control the level of light/color intensity in a given part of the screen.

Local dimming can be used to make blacks on the screen appear darker and richer by removing the backlight behind them.

Noise Reduction

The Sony XBR65X900F supports noise reduction (as do the Sceptre X508BVFHD and the Sony KDL60W630B), however the LG 50LB5800 and the LG 55LW5600 do not support this feature. More ...

Noise reduction helps reduce intrusive audio and visual noise for a clearer and better viewing experience.

Wi-Fi

The Sony XBR65X900F supports Wi-Fi, and so do the LG 50LB5800, the LG 55LW5600 and the Sony KDL60W630B, whereas the Sceptre X508BVFHD does not. More ...

A Wifi (wireless LAN connection) on your TV means that you can connect your TV directly to your WiFi network.

A wifi connection means that connecting your TV to the net will be easier and can be done without cables.

Bluetooth

The Sony XBR65X900F supports Bluetooth, but the LG 50LB5800, the LG 55LW5600, the Sceptre X508BVFHD and the Sony KDL60W630B do not. More ...

A Bluetooth connection on your TV means it can send and receive data from Bluetooth-enabled devices, such as headphones, mobile phones or remotes.

A Bluetooth connection on your phone allows you to use many newer wireless devices with your TV, such as wireless headphones and controlling your TV using your phone.

Ethernet Port

The Sony XBR65X900F has an ethernet port (as do the LG 55LW5600 and the Sony KDL60W630B), however the LG 50LB5800 and the Sceptre X508BVFHD do not have this feature. More ...

An ethernet port lets you connect the TV directly to your router with an ethernet cable.

An ethernet connection is more reliable than wifi and is useful if you do not have a wiki network or the wifi signal is weak. Depending on the speed of your wifi network and ethernet connection may be faster than wifi which means less buffering when streaming content to the TV.

Miracast

The Sony XBR65X900F supports Miracast, and so does the LG 50LB5800, but the LG 55LW5600, the Sceptre X508BVFHD and the Sony KDL60W630B do not. More ...

Miracast is a peer-to-peer wireless screencasting standard formed via Wi-Fi Direct connections in a manner similar to Bluetooth.

TVs with Miracast can use it to stream media from computers and mobile phones at very high quality without the need to attach cables first, making the whole process far easier.

Wi-Fi Direct

The Sony XBR65X900F supports Wi-Fi Direct (as do the LG 50LB5800 and the Sony KDL60W630B), but the LG 55LW5600 and the Sceptre X508BVFHD do not support this feature. More ...

Wi-Fi Direct is a system to allow your TV to connect directly to other device without requiring a wireless router as a go-between.

Wi-Fi Direct is helpful on a TV because it allows a TV to connect to another device (such as a computer or phone) directly, meaning there is far less setup required - the devices just need to be 'paired' (normally at a press of a button) and the y can transfer data between each other. This is extremely useful for streaming media onto your TV from a computer or phone.

Desktop Stand Included

The Sony XBR65X900F has a desktop stand included (as do the LG 50LB5800, the Sceptre X508BVFHD and the Sony KDL60W630B), however the LG 55LW5600 does not have this feature. More ...

Whether the TV has a desktop stand included with the purchase.

A desktop stand allows you to mount the TV on a desk or table for easy viewing. Without one, you'll have to either mount the TV on a wall or buy a stand at additional expense.

More Shops Are Selling it

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

Newer by 10 Months

The Sony XBR65X900F was released 10 months after the LG 50LB5800, released four years after the LG 55LW5600, released 16 months after the Sceptre X508BVFHD and released 11 months after the Sony KDL60W630B

5 Reasons Against for Choosing the Sony XBR65X900F

The thickness of a 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.
