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

Not lightening quick


Obviously this is a very good television with lots of features. At the time of writing the ITV catch-up service (app) isn't working though I-player etc is. The tv needs a few seconds to warm up; the you-view programme system seems really slow, our...

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...
