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 service


I bought my Sony Bravia TV after doing a lot of shopping around. Richer Sounds not only match the best price I had found, they beat it by £10! The transaction was very easy and was handled very professionally. I would definitely recommend Richer sounds.

HDR picture quality is stunning


I've had the TV for a week now and I'm very impressed. I've upgraded from a 40'' Sony LCD and the picture quality on the new set is fantastic. As the new one has very slim bezels it doesn't seem that much bigger than my old set. Setting up the TV is...

Great Picture - Straight out of the Box


Not quite as good as OLED - but you can't get a 49" OLED, so this is pretty much as good as it gets - much better than the equivalent Samsungs - and without the annoying (and unremoveable) adverts in the operating system displays. Very easy to set up -...

This was a Christmas present for my wife & myself, well mostly me lol. I had read loads of reviews first. I was intending to purchase from Richer Sounds anyway but I watched Vincent Teoh on U-tube and he loves you as much as me. I am still fine tuning...

Brilliant TV


Following discussion with the Richer Sounds team about whether the Sony or Samsung alternative would best meet my needs, I bought the Sony TV two weeks ago together with a matching soundbar. The TV is great, fantastic picture, easy to use and looks...

Lives up to the good reviews!


I was looking for a Smart TV that was not too expensive but would keep me a satisfied TV viewer for as long as my last one! I was not put off by the reports of the slow loading of the Home display and in truth it is quite quick! Ans as for the splayed...

Love my new Sony TV


Really pleased with my purchase, it replaces an 8 year old 37 inch Panasonic. Was worried it would be too big at 49 inches but fits nicely. Easy to set up and a really brilliant picture. Very impressed!

Great picture quality


I purchased this TV just before Christmas. I don't have any 4K content to throw at it so was concerned how well it would upscale normal HD content, but it looks great. Very happy with my upgrade from a 42" Panasonic Viera plasma.
