Sony Bravia KD43XE8004 43 inch TV : Masterful

Superb tv πŸ‘ŒπŸ»πŸ‘ŒπŸ»πŸ‘ŒπŸ».

Bright colours and very good definition.

Can’t fault the tv in any way. High end to a certain extent compared to others on the market, but well worth it.

It’s a solid tv, nothing espetacular but it’s good enough imo.

Can see why the reviews are so high.

Set-up:i went for the table top set-up rather than mounting it on a wall. 4 screws attach the stand to the tv, they are easy to reach with the tv rested on its side. Does feel a little flimsy when standing upright, but no real issues there. Well labeled connections, on both the back and left-hand side (when viewing from the front). There are 2 hdmi inputs on the back, and 2 on the side. Be aware that only the inputs on the side of the tv support 4k input. (one of which supports arc for connecting to a sound system). I did also have to enable 4k input in one of the settings menus. Also includes a lan input for connecting to your internet router (there is built in wifi, but as my router sits on the same stand i chose the wired option)once i had plugged in my virgin box, ps4 and my soundbar (via optical cable) i switched it on. Android tv has a pretty straightforward setup procedure (at least for someone like me who already has google accounts and an android phone).

Brilliant tv, does exactly what it say in the tin .

Love this tv, i’ve always been a fan of sony bravia tv’s and have always regretted diverting to other brands which may be cheaper but nowhere near as solid, classy, functional or well designed as the sonys. The tv upscales blu rays and standard 1080p ps4 games basically so everything pretty much looks like a 4k image and adds in the vibrancy and contrast. The images on true uhd are amazing. I’m not a big believer in 3d and have been waiting for the 4k range to be affordable because it delivers the image depth that even 3d cannot and will not deliver. Sitting closer to the tv while playing ps4 games is truly immersive and landscapes feel three dimensional due to the life-like clarity. It’s like peering through a window into real life at times. Menu is great and easy to pick up, very minimal effort needed to have everything hooked up harmoniously including the freesat box which i never knew could be assimilated in such a way.

  • Great !
  • Good Picture But YouView doesn’t work
  • Very decent tv for the price

I love the tv as it is an android tv. The only way to move forward for smart tv’s, unless apple comes with something similar. . The processor and graphics are low spec chips. Mt5891 with mali-t860 graphics gives only just over 29000 in antutu benchmark. To be honest, it is slightly quicker than amazon fire tv stick (around 20000) where amazon fire tv box has had around 72000 (previous 2nd gen, don’t mix it with the latest 3rd gen as in my opinion it is a joke). The o/s is laggy as others pointed. I have an impression that it was worse as soon as i turned on the tv (android 7. Then it asked to upgrade the firmware which improved the overall speed.

The picture quality is good enough but youview, doesn’t work, and it’s the only way you can get some apps , such as on demand tv from channel 4 (all4).

What an excellent tv this is. I had a requirement for a 4k uhd hdr tv that i actually use on my pc desk as both a computer monitor and also for the xbox one x and ps4 pro. Originally inpirchased a cheaper lg 43” set from pc world. It had an obnoxious bright green stick pixel right in the centre. Considering the fact that insit about 3 feet away from it, there was no way i could keep it. Pc world didn’t want to know so that is in room 101 right now. I purchased this bravia set, powered it on with my fingers crossed. No dead or stuck pixels, but the image quality is so much better than on the lg – night and day difference. Couldn’t be happier with it.
