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...

Having been looking at tv's since December it came down to LG,Samsung and Sony. All had their merits and deficiencies but the Sony had the edge on colour reproduction and especially the whites. On other TV's the whites looked a bit on the grey side...

Fantastic picture quality, so-so smart capability


This is actually the second set as the first had a dead pixel on initial start up which I know happens sometimes. If you are after the best in class 49" TV and are primerily looking for good picture quality then look no further. No other 49" I've seen...

Great picture and easy set up


I have now owned this TV for a month and still as pleased as I was the day it arrived. Stunning pictures and a breeze to set up and use. The new, fast Wifi means I have replaced a number of boxes I used to use with just the tele. Can't fault it.
