Sony KD-49X8005C review

  (Rating Hidden)

If you're searching for a top end, big screen 4K TV without having to spend a fortune, then the Sony KD-49X8005C could be right up your street. This affordable 49-inch set excels when displaying 4K pictures, but can it do the business with everyday TV...

The tv is fine and we are pleased

I wouldn't recommend this product because the after care from Sony is shocking and I can't recommend a product where the after care is useless

Easy to use , good picture quality

Got issues with the sound, keeps going off every 10-15 minutes or so for couple of seconds , very annoying ! It was an ex display model (only one in stock) so perhaps that's the reason , I will be taking it back for it to be sorted

Looks slick

Takes forever for the screen picture to appear when turning on via the remote control! Very annoying as I like things to be quick, old tv was immediate. Picture quality is slightly blurry as confirmed by several viewers

4K picture is stunning but the absolute winning point is the OS, android TV puts LG and Samsung to shame on their own operating systems, such a versatile smooth running and stunning TV

Not really a bad point but the only draw back is the lack of HDR
