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

Sony KD-49XF9005 (Test)


Neues Gefühl: Die Tasten sind nicht mehr so flach wie beim Vorgänger, an der Verteilung hat sich aber nichts geändert. Der Druckpunkt könnte fester sein.

Offiziell gehört der Sony KD-49XF9005 der oberen Mittelklasse an. Doch in einigen Disziplinen zeigt er tatsächlich Top-Niveau – etwa bei den akkuraten HDTV-Farben, den knackigen Kontrasten sowie der Bewegungsschärfe. Auch das HDR-Bild überzeugt, obwohl...

I bought one of the last of the 49" XF sets before the XG replacement with a more powerful processor. Excellent picture straight out of the box, simple set-up and up-scales really well, which was my key reason for buying it. Handbook adequate, but not...

Love this TV!


Bought this TV based on What Hifi review giving it an award for 2018. Great quality and so easy to set up. Like the splayed legs, although it is very wide, great for positioning the Sky Q box. Great price at Richer Sounds. Totally satisfied with the...

Great all round television


I bought this after a lot of research and reviews suggesting this is the best 49 inch tv available. There are not many options with a 100hz panel in this size, but this is one of them. Picture is very good, although it's very bright so I did turn down...

Magnificent picture, appalling OS


First things first: the picture on this TV is absolutely superb. Best I've ever seen on a product in this price range. Brilliant. However, the Android OS on this TV is dreadful. So, so slow! It shows classic signs of either the supporting hardware...

I bought this TV a week ago along with a Sonos Sound bar. The picture in store was much better and in exploring the settings have found that there is a special retail setting. The Android software is so very slow and clunky with a very cluttered Home...
