Sony Bravia KD49XF8096 49-Inch Android 4K HDR Ultra HD TV – Great TV, good software and tidy appearance

When the tv arrived it was damaged in transit. Courier arrived to pick it up and a replacement arrived to ireland within 2days. I must say the costomer service was top class. This is a great all round 4 k uhd tv. Not for the sports enthusiast motion a bit blurry. Other than that general tv shows and hd movies look fab. It also comes with a 5 year warranty. It was sold by ask direct and fulfilled by amazon. I would highly recommend them for your next tv. A happy irish coustomer is all i can say.

Easy setup, great picture and lots of features.

Does everything you want from a tv.

Amazing picture quality, easy to use, great sound.

In testing alexa integration before setting up for an elderly disabled person i discovered that the tv will not respond to turn on by alexa voice command if the tv has been off for over an hour or two and is only using wireless network. This is entirely replicable and does not occur if you use a network cable to connect to your router. I gave up with sony support as they only care to follow standard basic troubleshooting steps, that are entirely irrelevant and don’t seem interested in accepting a bug report. Also, if tv has been powered down completely (at plug socket) for any length of time, make sure you check the date/time as the android layer may not connect to the internet otherwise. (symptom: top level network settings states ‘connected, no internet’, wifi connection below that displays internet connected and ip address correctly). Lovely tv otherwise, so one star lost for faults and low quality sony support.

Good tv with plenty of features. There is no lag in the remote as mentioned in other reviews i have read. Easy to set up out of the box. Recommends 2 people but managed on my own. My only gripe would be the audio which sounds poor on most of the available settings that are pre loaded. Maybe i will try adjusting those to see if it improves. All in all a great bit of kit for £474.

Having had a sony bravia for several years, it was time for an upgrade and this tv is just that. Moving from a 37′ to a 43′ isn’t a quantum leap but the picture quality difference is very noticeable the uhdtv is very clear and the colours are vibrant. The speakers aren’t brilliant but, as i always intended to connect the tv to a sony sound system, that was never an issue and it sounds great. The remote is easy to use and the smart features work well after connecting to my wifi. All in all i am well satisfied with my sony tv.

Wonderfully clear picture; easy menus to navigate & bought for a great price. Well done sony for another fantastic tv.

Excellent value, good quality sound and picture.

Great tv, lovely picture, plenty of settings, very pleased with it, only problem it seems to take a while to respond to commands sometimes, fantastic tv though.

Got this on black friday, brilliant tv for the money. Didn’t know i was missing 4k etc until i got it.

Took delivery of this a few days ago. The picture quality is absolutley stunning and the sound quality is good once set up correctly. The design is top notch as you would expect from sony and i can’t fault the android system – i’ve had no speed issues as some have mentioned. What is really frustrating is the limitations of the inbuilt youview system. You have a choice of either disabling youview and being able to record channels onto hdd, but not being able to access itv player or all 4. Or enabling youview and being able to access them, but losing the ability to recordit seems like a major oversight/design flaw, and is not mentioned anywhere before you buy. Except in online support forums which you would only find when searching for the problem specificallyoverall a great tv, just not without annoying issues.
