Sony Bravia KD-55X8005C

 

This is a good looking TV with good picture quality and sound plus plenty of inputs.

Only 3 days after purchase we had to contact Sony helpdesk twice because the TV would not respond to the remote control, who advised we do a hard reset. This worked for around three weeks but even now we still have to hard reset the TV occasionaly as...

Easy-to-use Android OS/interface. Great image quality. Cinematic experience.

Picture quality is very high and the ease I was able to connect it to the internet was evident. The lay out of all the Apps for Netflix and Google Play etc, is easy to follow also.

Sound quality could be a little better, but otherwise I have no concerns.

Rich colour, clear screen, nice smart features that must be wonderful with a good wifi signal. appreciate the one scart socket...we are not all totally up to date. A lovely television. We could have bought the same size cheaper, but wanted a quality TV...

Sound is fine, but not as good as our old Toshiba TV. I would object to buying a sounder to improve this. We just turn it up high. It really isn't a problem at all. A shame though, with so much that is good about it, Sony could not have attended to the...
