"4K picture quality is superb, there’s a range of streaming apps to keep us content, and it’s got good sound." What Hi-Fi Award Winner 2017

Using technology from the range-topping ZD9 for stunning detail

First used on the range-topping ZD9 model, Object-Based HDR remaster analyses images and enhances both colour and textures for extraordinary realism and depth. Super Bit Mapping 4K HDR further enhances this by eliminating the 'banding' that can be seen on inferior TVs as the tone and shade gradually change. Now a sunset looks just like a true sunset rather than a graduated approximation.

X1 processor for sublime picture quality - whatever the source
We're now firmly in the era of 4K UHD but Sony realise that not all 4K signals are equal. A RAW 4K UHD signal from a 4K UHD player requires different processing than a Netflix 4K signal or a USB video signal. Sony's X1 processor analyses every signal and optimises it for the best performance possible. Thanks to Sony's X-Reality PRO 4K technology, standard FHD images can be upscaled to near UHD quality, giving the sharpest detail possible from your Blu-rays and other FHD sources.

X-tended Dynamic Range PRO with HDR - High Dynamic Range
The Sony KD49XE9005 is compatible with HDR (High Dynamic Range). This extends the range of colours for enhanced realism. It also delivers brighter whites and darker blacks, helping to give this TV stunning levels of contrast. Where this Sony 49 inch TV goes even further is in using Sony's X-tended Dynamic Range PRO processor. By precisely balancing the light output across the screen, dimming some areas and boosting others, X-tended Dynamic Range PRO reveals a brightness range three times that of a conventional LED-backlit TV.

Triluminos display
As well as 4K, this Sony TV also boasts a Triluminos display; developed to produce truer, deeper and more natural shades of colour, with skin shades appearing far more natural.

Motionflow XR1000Hz for super-smooth motion
This Sony is also fitted with Motionflow XR 1000Hz, which works especially well with fast moving action, such as sports events, removing the blur you can see with standard TVs. From a Hollywood blockbuster to a Formula One race, XR1000 makes a significant difference.

Android TV
Offering the slick interaction of the best smartphones, Android TV is one of the smartest content managers and providers to date. Boasting features such as GoogleCast, Google Play and Voice Search, this Sony is part TV and part giant smartphone.

Voice Search and Content Bar for effortless searching
Even with such a massive range of content, finding what you want is always easy. Voice Search means you simply say what you're looking for and let Android TV find it for you. The unobtrusive content bar quickly lets you find the movie, TV show or video you're after. Call up the Content bar and you can keep watching, while you scan through live TV, on demand, downloaded TV shows and more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sony 49 inch 4K Ultra HD HDR Smart LED Android TV Easy setup, but Sony hand book is lacking in info, is a hand book preloaded on TV. Must use HDMI cable's version 1.4 / version 2.0 as sound bar will not work if you use lower spec cable's

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome 49" tv!! Fantastic picture probably the best for a 49" tv, great for 4k gaming with the 100hz native screen almost no motion blur, clunky smart software let's it down a bit but it's usable, shame only 2 of the HDMI inputs are 2.2 compliant with one of those being the ARC if using a sound bar, which is a must being that the speakers are a bit tinny on the tv...lack of paper instructions!! Initial setup is a bit of a faff and it takes some understanding of the settings to get the best from the 4k HDR screen...a tad expensive but worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fine pictures and sound I bought this TV after reading reviews on line and felt it delivered top quality of picture and sound without paying the significantly higher price for the 'top' TVs. I am pleased with the picure. The blacks are truly black and the colours rich in crisp pictures. The sound is better than my previous TV and is fine unless you seek the sort of sound that needs a soundbar or similar. On the back of the TV there are plenty of the expected connection points (HDMI,USB, optical etc) to enable accessories to be connected. I have used better designed remote controls in that some 'buttons' (like the mute button}, do not fallen to hand easily and the buttons themselves are not the most pleasant to press, but the remote is still acceptable and certainly would not put me off buying. The TV itself is complicated for someone who started watching TV when there were only two black and white stations and the built in manual could be better, which means I have spent a lot of time learning all aspects of the TV. Having done that I am enjoying watching both terrestrial television and streamed films. Overall, I am pleased with the TV and feel that I have bought a TV that provides top quality performance for a reasonable price. I would recommend that anyone thinking of buying a TV, has a look at it before paying much more for a TV that wouldn't be significantly better, if at all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb TV Picked this up from the Solihull branch, after reading many reviews & so glad i did. Once set up to my liking, which was quite simple, it produces an absolutely superb picture, from SD to UHD. HDR is really impressive, Netlix & prime look awesome, XB1s games look superb, all routed through a Dennon 2300w on ARC. Picture wise this is almost flawless, cannot recommend it enough. Android smart OS tends to get a bit of a bashing & i thought it was very slow & clunky, but after a recent firmware update it flies, well lets just say its a lot faster than it was :) & perfectly usable from my perspective. At the price i paid you will struggle to find a better TV & if you also get the free soundbar, it's a terrific bonus. IMHO simply the best TV in it’s class The usual superb RS service & reassuring 6 year warrantee.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Stunning Picture I wanted the best 49 inch UHD 4K TV I could afford and finally auditioned the Samsung QLed and the Sony KD49XE9005. In the store the Samsung stood out. Bright, sharp, but ultimately just too flashy and unsubtle. The Sony picture was much more realistic, particularly in a domestic situation, and is more than bright enough. The Android operating system takes a bit of getting used to. It can be a bit slow at times but it doesn’t really cause a problem and will get better as Sony develops it. The voice activation is very accurate but doesn’t work with TV programs. It is good for all on line apps and streaming services though. The sound is OK for general viewing although I use a Denon AV amp and high quality PMC speaker system for serious viewing/listening. However I bought the Sony for the picture which, after a lot of setup tweaks, is stunning. I use Sky+ as my primary source (not Sky Q yet) although the in built digital tuner is also used occasionally. It uses YouView for freeview which is good and bad. It has a 14 day program guide which provides a view of the last 7 days most of which can be selected for immeadiate catch up (good) and a 7 day view of now and future programs. However you can’t click on a future program to record it as program recording has been disabled (bad). You can revert to the standard freeview guide and ability to record by disabling YouView but it’s a bit of a slog to achieve and unnecessary with Sky+. The picture for each input needs to be set up individually to get the best results. It’s well worth the effort though. At times the picture takes on a 3D quality. It automatically upscales HD inputs from any source to 4K and I find only a small difference between the upscaled HD input and the native 4K UHD input. Important as there is limited 4K material available at the moment. I bought the Sony UBPX800 HD Blu Ray player with the TV but if you already have a good Blu Ray player it will output a picture as close to the native 4K UHD as you would want. 4K video can be streamed from YouTube and Amazon for comparison. I am slightly disappointed with the Sony’s ability to handle fast motion especially as this TV has a reputation for being one of the best at handling motion. The problem is noticeable when the subject is moving in front of a background where the distance between subject and background is small and the background has regular, especially vertical, patterns. Somebody walking in front of vertical blinds for example. The subject is sharp but the background has a small fuzz around the subject outline and the vertical lines in the background judder slightly as the subject moves. There are comprehensive motion settings available in the set up but I could not cure the problem. It could just be a problem with my particular TV though and after a while you get used to it and hardly notice it. It’s actually no different to the 40 inch Samsung that the KD49XE9005 has replaced. The KD49XE9005 being that much larger means it’s just more apparent. In summary the superb natural picture makes up for the minor niggles in other areas. Well worth an audition. The picture really is stunning.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sony Superstar Brilliant picture from this tv. No banding and very small backlight bleed, the Direct LED backlight does make the picture smoother. Colours are spot on and fairly wide viewing angles for a VA panel. Even better deal with the sound bar included. Android is much improved and lag from the remote is better. Sony motion is also top drawer. Buy this TV if you cant afford OLED or OLED's are to big it really is the best 50inch or below TV around. Only con is You View why do Sony persist with this slow and buggy guide at least you can turn it off but then you loose ITV Hub, All 4 and my 5. This is not much of loss as all of these are in standard definition. You View also stops you recording to a separate hard drive and the chance to view Satellite channels. Satellite also only give you now and next data which is strange.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic TV very impressed The only down side is that the picture is so much better than the other TV I may upgrade that one as well. The guys in the shop where super helpful as well
