Reasons For

Samsung UN50KU6300 Sony X800D
4 Reasons For
Larger Display Diagonal
The Samsung UN50KU6300 is a 49.5" TV. That's 6.5" larger than the Sony X800D (43").

‘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
Samsung TVs have an average rating of 91.5%, but Sony has an average rating of 68.9%.
1 Reason For
Faster Motion Interpolation Frequency
The Sony X800D is a 240Hz motion interpolation frequency TV. That's 120Hz faster than the Samsung UN50KU6300 (120Hz).

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.

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.
