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

Great picture but poor YouView implementation


I bought this model to replace an old 40in Sony hd lcd tv. As this model had both satellite and aerial inputs, I had hoped that I could attach a hard drive and only have to use the tv for both viewing and scheduled recordings, while watching any...
