14 Reasons For for Choosing the Sony XBR43X800H

4K

The Sony XBR43X800H is 4K (as is the TCL 43S405), however the LG 49LF5400 is 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.

29% Thinner

The Sony XBR43X800H is a 57mm thick TV. That's 1.7mm thinner than the LG 49LF5400 (58.7mm), 23mm thinner than the Supersonic SC3210 (80mm), 16.6mm thinner than the TCL 43S405 (73.6mm) and 18.95mm thinner than the VIZIO E50D1 (75.95mm). 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.

Auto Volume Leveler

The Sony XBR43X800H has an auto volume leveler, but the LG 49LF5400, the Supersonic SC3210, the TCL 43S405 and the VIZIO E50D1 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 XBR43X800H is a 20W RMS rated power TV, and so does the VIZIO E50D1. That's 10W higher than the LG 49LF5400 (10W) and 8W higher than the Supersonic SC3210 (12W). 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 XBR43X800H supports screen mirroring, whereas the LG 49LF5400, the Supersonic SC3210, the TCL 43S405 and the VIZIO E50D1 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.

Smartphone Remote App

The Sony XBR43X800H has a smartphone remote app, but the LG 49LF5400, the Supersonic SC3210, the TCL 43S405 and the VIZIO E50D1 do not have this feature. 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!

High Dynamic Range Imaging (HDRI)

The Sony XBR43X800H features High Dynamic Range Imaging (HDRI), but the LG 49LF5400, the Supersonic SC3210, the TCL 43S405 and the VIZIO E50D1 do not feature this benefit. More ...

High Dynamic Range Imaging (HDRI) on a TV is a system that allows preserves details in the darkest and brightest areas of the screen that are lost using standard display methods.

HDRI on a TV allows for better contrast levels, greater brightness levels and a wider colour palette on films and TV programs. This translates into more natural, true-to-life colours that are closer to how we see them in real life.

Wi-Fi

The Sony XBR43X800H supports Wi-Fi, and so does the VIZIO E50D1, however the LG 49LF5400, the Supersonic SC3210 and the TCL 43S405 do 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 XBR43X800H supports Bluetooth, whereas the LG 49LF5400, the Supersonic SC3210, the TCL 43S405 and the VIZIO E50D1 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 XBR43X800H has an ethernet port (as does the VIZIO E50D1), but the LG 49LF5400, the Supersonic SC3210 and the TCL 43S405 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 XBR43X800H supports Miracast, whereas the LG 49LF5400, the Supersonic SC3210, the TCL 43S405 and the VIZIO E50D1 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 XBR43X800H supports Wi-Fi Direct, whereas the LG 49LF5400, the Supersonic SC3210, the TCL 43S405 and the VIZIO E50D1 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.

Voice Control

The Sony XBR43X800H features voice control, however the LG 49LF5400, the Supersonic SC3210, the TCL 43S405 and the VIZIO E50D1 do not feature this benefit. 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 Sony XBR43X800H has a desktop stand included, but the LG 49LF5400, the Supersonic SC3210, the TCL 43S405 and the VIZIO E50D1 do 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.

8 Reasons Against for Choosing the Sony XBR43X800H

14% Smaller Display Diagonal

The Sony XBR43X800H has a display diagonal of 43" (as does the TCL 43S405), however the LG 49LF5400 and the VIZIO E50D1 are both 49.5" TVs (6.5" larger) and the Supersonic SC3210 is a 31.5" TV (11.5" 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.

Not 3D

The Sony XBR43X800H is not 3D (As do the the LG 49LF5400, the Supersonic SC3210 and the VIZIO E50D1), but the TCL 43S405 is. 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.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Sony XBR43X800H has received a Kagoo Score of 85, but the LG 49LF5400 scored 86, the TCL 43S405 scored 86 and the VIZIO E50D1 scored 86.

More Expensive by $395

The Sony XBR43X800H is $98 more expensive than the LG 49LF5400, $395 more expensive than the Supersonic SC3210, $108 more expensive than the TCL 43S405 and $298 more expensive than the VIZIO E50D1.

Not As Many Stockists

The Sony XBR43X800H is only stocked by 2 shops, however the Supersonic SC3210 is stocked by 4 shops. More ...

Fewer numbers of shops reduces the chances of the product remaining in stock and also reduces the price competition amongst retailers for this TV.
Older by One Year

The Sony XBR43X800H is one year older than the TCL 43S405.

Higher Running Costs Over Five Years by $15

The Sony XBR43X800H costs $80 to run which is $15 more than the LG 49LF5400, $13 more than the TCL 43S405 and $3 more than the VIZIO E50D1 over five years. Show assumptions.

Worse Brand

Sony TVs have an average rating of only 88.6%, however LG has an average rating of 95% and VIZIO has an average rating of 88.7%.

The cheapest price that we could find for the XBR43X800H in the US is $548.00 but in total we found only 2 prices for it.

7 Reasons For for Choosing the VIZIO E50D1

27% Larger Display Diagonal

The VIZIO E50D1 is a 49.5" TV. That's 0.5" larger than the LG 49LF5400 (49"), 6.5" larger than the Sony XBR43X800H and the TCL 43S405 (43") and 18" larger than the Supersonic SC3210 (31.5"). 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.

34% Faster High Frequency Rate

VIZIO E50D1 is 120Hz refresh rate. That's 60Hz faster than the LG 49LF5400 and the Supersonic SC3210 (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.

A Lot Higher RMS Rated Power

The VIZIO E50D1 has an RMS rated power of 20W (as does the Sony XBR43X800H), whereas the LG 49LF5400 is only a 10W RMS rated power TV (10W lower) and the Supersonic SC3210 is only a 12W RMS rated power TV (8W lower). 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.

Local Dimming

The VIZIO E50D1 features local dimming, whereas the LG 49LF5400, the Sony XBR43X800H, the Supersonic SC3210 and the TCL 43S405 do not feature this benefit. 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.

Wi-Fi

The VIZIO E50D1 supports Wi-Fi (as does the Sony XBR43X800H), however the LG 49LF5400, the Supersonic SC3210 and the TCL 43S405 do 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 VIZIO E50D1 has an ethernet port, and so does the Sony XBR43X800H, but the LG 49LF5400, the Supersonic SC3210 and the TCL 43S405 do not. 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.

Better Kagoo Score

The VIZIO E50D1 has received a Kagoo Score of 86, but the Sony XBR43X800H scored 85 and the Supersonic SC3210 scored 78.

10 Reasons Against for Choosing the VIZIO E50D1

18.95mm Thicker

The VIZIO E50D1 is a 75.95mm thick TV, whereas the LG 49LF5400 is a 58.7mm thick TV (17.25mm thinner), the Sony XBR43X800H is a 57mm thick TV (18.95mm thinner), the Supersonic SC3210 is an 80mm thick TV (4.05mm thicker) and the TCL 43S405 is a 73.6mm thick TV (2.35mm 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.

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

$97 More Expensive

The VIZIO E50D1 is more expensive than the Supersonic SC3210 by $97.

Not As Many Stockists

Only 2 retailers sells the VIZIO E50D1, however 4 stores sell the Supersonic SC3210. 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 VIZIO E50D1 is older than the Sony XBR43X800H by seven months and older than the TCL 43S405 by 19 months.

More Expensive to Run Over Five Years by 17%

Over five years the VIZIO E50D1 costs $76 to run which is $11 more than the LG 49LF5400 and $10 more than the TCL 43S405. Show assumptions.

A Lot Lower User Review Score

4 Reasons For for Choosing the LG 49LF5400

Noise Reduction

The LG 49LF5400 supports noise reduction, and so does the Supersonic SC3210, but the Sony XBR43X800H, the TCL 43S405 and the VIZIO E50D1 do not. More ...

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

Better Kagoo Score

The LG 49LF5400 has received a Kagoo Score of 86, but the Sony XBR43X800H scored 85 and the Supersonic SC3210 scored 78.

$26 Cheaper to Run Over Five Years

The LG 49LF5400 only costs $65 to run over five years whereas the Sony XBR43X800H costs $80 to run (22% more), the Supersonic SC3210 costs $91 to run (40% more), the TCL 43S405 costs $66 to run (2% more) and the VIZIO E50D1 costs $76 to run (17% more). More ...

Better Brand

LG TVs have an average rating of 95%, however Sony only has an average rating of 88.6%, Supersonic only has an average rating of 82.5%, TCL only has an average rating of 63.7% and VIZIO only has an average rating of 88.7%.

13 Reasons Against for Choosing the LG 49LF5400

4 Times Lower Display Resolution

The LG 49LF5400 is full hd, which is 4 times lower display resolution of the Sony XBR43X800H and the TCL 43S405 (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.

2% Smaller Display Diagonal

The LG 49LF5400 is a 49" TV. That's 6" larger than the Sony XBR43X800H and the TCL 43S405 (43"), 17.5" larger than the Supersonic SC3210 (31.5") and 0.5" smaller than the VIZIO E50D1 (49.5"). 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.

1.7mm Thicker

The LG 49LF5400 is a 58.7mm thick TV, whereas the Sony XBR43X800H is a 57mm thick TV (1.7mm thinner), the Supersonic SC3210 is an 80mm thick TV (21.3mm thicker), the TCL 43S405 is a 73.6mm thick TV (14.9mm thicker) and the VIZIO E50D1 is a 75.95mm thick TV (17.25mm 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.

50% Slower High Frequency Rate

LG 49LF5400 is only 60Hz refresh rate, and so does the Supersonic SC3210. That's 60Hz slower than the VIZIO E50D1 (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.

A Lot Lower RMS Rated Power

The LG 49LF5400 has an RMS rated power of 10W, whereas the Sony XBR43X800H and the VIZIO E50D1 are both 20W RMS rated power TVs (10W higher) and the Supersonic SC3210 is a 12W RMS rated power TV (2W 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 LG 49LF5400 is not 3D (As do the the Sony XBR43X800H, the Supersonic SC3210 and the VIZIO E50D1), but the TCL 43S405 is. 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 LG 49LF5400 does not support Wi-Fi (As does the the Supersonic SC3210), but the Sony XBR43X800H, the TCL 43S405 and the VIZIO E50D1 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 LG 49LF5400 does not have an ethernet port (As does the the Supersonic SC3210), whereas the Sony XBR43X800H, the TCL 43S405 and the VIZIO E50D1 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.

$297 More Expensive

The LG 49LF5400 is more expensive than the Supersonic SC3210 by $297, more expensive than the TCL 43S405 by $10 and more expensive than the VIZIO E50D1 by $200.

Not As Many Stockists

Only 1 store sell the LG 49LF5400, however 2 shops sell the Sony XBR43X800H, 4 retailers sell the Supersonic SC3210 and 2 retailers sell the VIZIO E50D1. 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 Two Years Older

The LG 49LF5400 is older than the Sony XBR43X800H by 20 months, older than the TCL 43S405 by three years and older than the VIZIO E50D1 by 13 months.

Marginally Lower User Review Score

The LG 49LF5400 has an average user rating of 87%, but the TCL 43S405 has an average user rating of 91% (based on 991 reviews).

Marginally Lower Overall Review Score

The LG 49LF5400 has an average overall rating of 87%, but the TCL 43S405 has an average overall rating of 91% (based on 991 reviews).

The LG 49LF5400 is 1,103mm wide, 650mm tall, 58.7mm thick and weighs 13.1kg.
