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 futures, brilliant picture quality


After a thorough research, I bought the TV couple of weeks ago and very happy with it. It was easy to set up , nice design and crisp images. I would recommend to buy it. Excellent customer service from Richer Sound team at Reigate branch.

Cant fault it a top Tv


Brought just before black Friday expecting it to drop slightly but wasnt worried with Richer sounds 7 days price promise (which they honoured no problems) and didnt want them to run out of stock as I had set my heart on this Tv after reading lots of...

Really great picture quality, stylish & sleek


I'm delighted with this TV; OLED was't an option for a 49 inch TV so I went for the next best thing and it's great. The picture quality is brilliant - much better than my previous edge-lit Panasonic - bright and vibrant colours together with detail in...

Vibrant colours and good sound


Bought this a month ago, I am happy with it but I am still learning how to use it. The reference guide does not have enough info. The on-line manual too many pages and not easy to find what one requires. The staff at the Bromley Branch are very...

Fantastic picture and features


Fantastic picture: About the best TV picture at this price range but needs slight adjustment to suit your own requirements. I have motionflow OFF as it seams to have less artefacts. Viewing angle needs to be less than 20° otherwise it fades slightly....

Outstanding...the best picture before OLEDs?


Great picture, cant fault the standard settings but has a whole suite of options to tweak the picture (and sound) to your liking. I bought the 49 inch version so OLEDs were not an option for me and at the Black Friday price this was a no brainer vs the...

Great TV but had to buy a more suitable stand


Bought this TV as a replacement for a 7 year old Sony that had stopped working. Noticeable improvement in picture quality and sound compared with old TV. Stand supplied with TV not suitable for our room so had to buy a stand that enables TV to be...

Amazing picture quality, shame about the OS


A fantastic tv, let down by the complicated and slow android TV system. It perpetually bombards you with Google play trailers at the slightest press of the controller and unless you switch off the Google play app, there is no way to stop it. Very...

Does not disappoint


I bought this TV to replace a much loved old Loewe after reading reviews and talking to the guys at Richer sounds. I must say the picture vquality is outstanding. With the HTZF9 soundbar it is really impressive.
