X1 Extreme for powerful picture processing

Packing 40% more real-time image processing than the standard X1 processor, X1 Extreme takes processing power to the next level. Sony's X1 Extreme processor analyses every signal and optimises it for the best performance possible. X1 Extreme is also the power behind upscaling FHD images to UHD 4K – bringing new life to your Blu-ray collection and non-4K TV shows.

Stunning contrast and detail from Full array LED backlighting with X-Tended Dynamic Range Pro
The Sony Bravia KD-49XG9005 uses a full-array LED backlight with ultra-dense structure for the most effective LED screen yet. This ultimate level of brightness control boosts contrast levels, giving deeper blacks, dazzling whites and truer colour between. The TRILUMINOS display with X-Tended Dynamic Range Pro offers true-to-life colour for a more natural and believable colour balance.

The smoothest images with X-Motion Clarity
Sony’s X-Motion Clarity makes use of the LED panel’s full array dimming technology to deliver smoother and brighter images. By controlling the backlighting with greater precision this Sony 49” TV offers enhanced realism, especially with fast-moving sports and action movies.

HDR support, including Dolby Vision
HDR maximises picture quality, bringing detail to the darkest areas of the picture as well as making the overall image look more life-like than ever. As well as HDR10 and HLG formats, this Sony is also compatible with Dolby Vision. Dolby Vision optimises the HDR format to give quite simply the sharpest, most accurate images possible. Very much an industry standard, Dolby Vision continually adjusts the picture for the most remarkable realism.

Android TV
Bringing together photos, music, movies, Internet and apps, the Sony Android system makes accessing a huge range of entertainment easy.

Control your TV with Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant
Connect up your Amazon Alexia device and you get access to wide range of voice control options. Alter the volume, change the channel or input and more – all just by asking Alexa. Alternatively, connect a Google Home and use the Google Assistant to control the Android menu and find your favourites.

Premium style
With its softened bezel and striking, aluminium stand, the Sony KD-49XG9005 makes a strong statement of style in your room, without overpowering it. The supplied table stand offers stylish support and even conceals cables, keeping the style even cleaner.

Perfect for smaller rooms, the Sony Bravia KD-49XG9005 gives you the features of a larger top-end TV, in a compact design.

Please note, this Smart TV features third party Apps. These Apps may be modified or withdrawn at any time. There may also be a delay in launching some of the featured Apps.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great picture quality let down by OS The picture quality and smart features of this TV are what you would expect from Sony, excellent. Unfortunately it is let down by a flakey, over complicated operating system. The biggest problem is, the Wi-Fi keeps disconnecting when on 5Ghz (I had to disable 5Ghz on my old router and are having the same problems on my new one now) causing prolonged buffering periods when using Netflix, iPlayer etc. Although the Android system allows for a good level of customisation and apps, I would only recommend it to someone who is familiar with Android and has a good understanding of tech. otherwise you could be plagued with Wi-Fi (or other) issues and struggling to find an answer in the over complicated, counterintuitive help menu.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Lacking in basic functionality and buggy One year has passed since buying this TV, and I whish I hand't. First off, this replaced an MY2012 Samsung that had DVB-S and DVB-T tuners with Freeview and Freesat, therefore, I incorrectly assumed that checking this had a DVB-S tuner would be enough to guarantee Freesat, but no. Sony are too tight to pay the license fee. I've just read on What Hi-Fi that the XH9505 (MY2020) will get an update including Freesat, but that article was written in May 2020 and there's still no sign of it. Don't believe everything you read. Also, whether they'll backport that update to older TV's is wishful thinking. Next up: No timeshift (pause live TV). Come on Sony. This is 101 stuff. My 8-year-old Samsung has it, and it picks up HDDs without rebooting 4 times and all the other issues I've had in getting it to detect a USB HDD. I wouldn't say I am an excessive user (a few hours most evenings), but 12 months on, the symbols on the remote control are already fading away. Again, the remote on my old Samsung looks as good as the day it was bought, plus it's back-lit - another missing feature. The remote isn't very responsive. I end up pressing the volume button 3 - 4 times before it starts to do anything. They try and force you to use this Youview thing and there's other bloat-ware that is just infuriating. Automatic updates are enabled, but it still hasn't installed Android TV v. 9.0 which was released (by Sony) in January 2020. Would I recommend this. Certainly not, and from what I have read of the 2020 models, I wouldn't buy one of those either. I do wonder if some of the problems are due to the immaturity of Android TV. Unfortunately, I don't have the flexibility and freedom that I was expecting with an Android device.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Beautiful TV, but a bit glitchy For the first 11months, this TV has been amazing. The picture quality is superb and the size is just right... Lately though, from time-to-time, it has been turning itself off immediately after being switched on. I attempted to do a software update to see if that fixed the issue, but now it intermittently takes a very long time to start up with a new Android splash screen appearing before the Sony splash screen. Frustrating as it doesn't happen every time, and my warranty is due to run out in just a few days time!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from KD-49XG9005 Excellent, vibrant and clear screen. Black depths are brilliant and has lots of functions to adjust screen to suit. Smart tv had a few initial issues but updates and clearing cache worked.
