SONY BRAVIA KD43XE8396 43" Smart 4K Ultra HD HDR LED TV

 

Easy self setup Amazing picture quality

The connection hub for TV gets incredibly hot. Need to purchase a heat resistant mat to put it on as to not damage what it is sitting on.

Screen mirroring, Netflix button so don't need to go through Virgin box, great picture. Perfect size.

Can't install all apps that I currently have pre-installed on another sony bravia smart tv.

TV worth purchasing just for Blue Planet II alone - the picture is outstanding! TV + frame looks great. YouView nicely links with TV catch-up services.

Disappointed with the OS. TV spec says user can record via USB hard drive; User cannot record in YouView mode. If you disable YouView, Freeview mode allows recording but some catch-up services do not work at all. Pause live TV does not work in either...

The picture quality is excellent and it looks stunning in 4k

A window about Samba tv appears each time I open the tv which is irritating. It does not give you the option to switch it off. I have to look into settings to do this.

Does not record with twin timers on to USB drive as described. No screen mirroring with Apple products.

Great picture Easy Set up Sound quality is fine as well (for a TV) Easy to use as well, can search using voice

SONY BRAVIA KD43XE8396 43" Smart 4K Ultra HD HDR LED TV

 

The stand is sturdy and not too large. Picture quality is really strong and consistent. Good range of apps available with 4K support on Netflix and Amazon Instant Video

Can be a bit laggy when running apps; volume changes are actioned but the volume is not shown on the screen. Annoying that you cannot setup apps like 4oD and Channel 5 without setting up with an Antenna/cable to scan for channels (via YouView).

It provides a display that both my wife and myself can view without any strain eyes, an excellent quality screen with no trouble in installing the device and operating it! Well done Sony!

No dislikes up to present time.
