Sony KD-49XF9005 review


Only slight improvements on its predecessor, but they make this a belter of a TV.

Good handling of detail ; Nuanced yet punchy colours ; Impressive contrast ; Full range of apps

Android TV is a bit clunky

A small step forward, but a step forward all the same – the KD-49XF9005 is now the 49in TV to beat

Great TV- shame about Youveiw


Great TV. Our first one died after 10 days but Richersounds did a straight swap. Integrates with the soundbar and PS4 well. Just a shame that YouView isn't very good- if you disable it then you can't use all4 or itvhub apps as Sony doesn't have a...

Great Picture and subtle crisp sound


Had to get a 49 inch as couldn't get an OLED in this size but it definetly packs a punch in all areas, especially surprisingly in its on board speakers. The Picture excels at fine tuning settings to what your viewing manually and even automatically it...
