"Sony's audio-visual prowess comes forth once again with this 4K HDR television." 'What Hi-Fi? magazine'. 5-star review. Tested at £1500.

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.

See all your video sources at their very best, with the X1-powered Sony KD49XE9005.

We'll happily come to you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love my new TV - Superb! I wanted to upgrade to 4K & a bigger screen. I consider myself to be a very fussy customer and I had many questions during the sales process. Sebastian at the Leicester store was fantastic. Very patient, very knowledgable and perfectly happy to spend as much time with me as I needed, answering all of my questions and making sure I got the right TV. He even loaded it into my car for me. This is my 3rd TV from this store and I'm sure I'll be back the next time I decide to upgrade. Definitely my kind of shop. The TV itself is superb. Much greater depth and detail than my previous Sony 42 inch HD. Watching 4K content (Passengers on Sky Q) was so immersive. Very pleased, love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great picture I found the Sony KD-49XE9005 easy to install, it has a good selection of connection sockets to 'hook' everything up to. Once you have been using for a while, it is also easy to navigate through the menus and adjust any of its user settings etc. You get a truly excellent picture, especially with HD programmes, colour and definition are really good. Sound through the front facing speakers is ok although not in the same league as the pictures, same as most slim LED TV's I suspect! I also like the design of the TV, with a narrow black frame around the screen and metal inlay along the slim-line edges making it look classy too. Build quality and attention to detail also look impressive. Well done Sony and thanks to Hunter at Richer Sounds, Brighton for your professional assistance. We made an excellent choice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Overall most satisfied The features are top quality and the picture superb. Connecting to other devices - existing surround sound and YouView was very challenging. Linked to the internet the features there are wonderful and well worth the investment in this TV

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great TV After doing some research I decided to have Richer Sounds do a home survey, mainly to get advice on the right size screen and to narrow down my choices to those which would best suit my viewing habits. Hunter from their Brighton store was extremely helpful and I subsequently went into the store and furnished with my new information looked at the sets on offer. I chose the Sony. Connected to Sky Q the HD picture is many steps up on our old Panasonic Viera and watching 4K on Amazon Prime is superb. I have it hooked up to my Yamaha sound bar so cannot comment on the Tvs own speakers. Richer set the TV up and although it comes with little by way of a manual, after 5 days I have had no need to refer to one. It accesses all the main catch up services as well as Prime, Netflix etc. I unhesitatingly recommend this TV and my first experience of Richer Sounds has been a very good one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product has excellent picture and sound quality. If you are a movie buff like me, and are looking for a reasonably priced LED TV, which has excellent smoothness of motion and picture clarity displaying the deepest of blacks and vibrant colours, then you wont go too far wrong with this excellent TV from Sony. Setting it up is quite simply a breeze, and once you are done, you are rewarded with a superb life like picture.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great display ruined by badly implemented Android TV The picture quality on this set is really great, when its working. For example watching Planet Earth II on UltraHD is a delight. But whenever you need to delve into the Android TV side of things it goes wrong, eventually. Now, I had no issues with Android TV elsewhere (like in the Nvidia Shield) but Sony have really badly implemented it. You will find apps do not get proper audio passthrough support that you might need for DTS or even regular 5.1 via ARC. Why? Who knows. Also the Freeview tuner is POOR. It is Youview - not even renamed to Freeview Play. You cannot record in Youview mode! You have to use Sony's own digital TV service instead, which doesn't use the dual tuners at all. No pause/rewind etc. I have also had loads of failed recordings as shows have been on back to back, which causes it to freak out and cancel the recording entire. If I could return this I would. Sadly, the box got thrown out. I do not recommend this TV.
