Reasons For

LG 79UF9500 Sony XBR-75X940
2 Reasons For
A Little Larger Display Diagonal
The LG 79UF9500 has a display diagonal of 79", however the Sony XBR-75X940 is only a 75" TV (4" smaller).

‘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.

Better Brand
LG TVs have an average rating of 84.5%, however Sony has an average rating of 59.9%.
2 Reasons For
1,200Hz Faster Motion Interpolation Frequency
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).

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.

Read more Read less | Edit
62% Higher RMS Rated Power
The Sony XBR-75X940 is a 90W RMS rated power TV. That's 55W higher than the LG 79UF9500 (35W).

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.

Energy Efficiency

Running Costs Over 5 Years

TV running costs calculated based on an average of 5 hours of use per day. The running cost comprises the electricity cost when using the TV and the electricity standby cost. Compare all energy saving TVs.

Environmental Impact

We have calculated the amount of CO2 that will be generated by running each of these TVs for 5 years. We have then converted that into the number of tree seedlings that you would need to plant and grow for 10 years in order to offset that amount of CO2.
