Sony Bravia KD49X8505

 

Easy to set up Picture quality is outstanding with little or no adjustment Netflix 4k works perfectly Use with Sony BDPS790 plays mastered in 4k discs at 3840 x 2160p Skype works perfectly using supplied camera.

Small remote supplied is not really required or good enough to take over the usual larger remote As with all flat TV's, sound leaves a little room for improvement, however I would take it for granted that if purchased it would be used with a home...

Great picture,3d is excellent. 4k cannot really be rated as lack of 4k content at the moment.

The football mode is a waste of time..it seems worse for watching football on.when turning on the tv,it can take a minute before you can access tv guide or switch hdmi input.
