- 4K HDR Processor X1 Extreme adds depth to the picture

- X-Motion clarity delivers a clear picture without sacrificing brightness

4K Ultra HD

Trade in that season ticket for a more comfortable and no less realistic spectator experience. The Sony BRAVIA KD55XF9005 55" Smart 4K Ultra HD HDR LED TV invites you closer to the action with its large screen and picture quality up to four times better than Full HD.

Dazzle your mates on match day with all the tension and excitement of watching live football, without the cold weather and plastic seating.

This TV also uses LED backlighting and local dimming to enhance the contrast of each scene. Perfect for dark and moody thrillers, it brings out the detail in shadows, whilst bright areas stay dazzling, so everything looks closer to real life.

Android TV with Google Assistant

With a Google Assistant built-in, navigating to the content you love to watch on the Sony BRAVIA XF90 Smart TV is easier than ever. Simply ask Google to play a movie title, load BBC iPlayer, or find your favourite YouTuber.

You can ask your TV about the weather, what films are showing at your local cinema, and how long it'll take to get there. And with easy access to the Google Play Store, you're only ever a couple of steps away from watching your favourite Netflix series, TED talks and catch-up apps. With built-in Chromecast, it's easy to share whatever you're watching on your phone to the TV, so everyone can enjoy the latest viral video.

4K HDR

Don't settle for colour without depth. The Sony BRAVIA XF9005 features Sony's flagship X1 Extreme processor, which adds optimum contrast to every frame. Bring life to whatever you watch with much greater depth and texture. And if you're a fan of nature documentaries and serene scenery, the millions of colours from the TRILUMINOS technology and Super Bit Mapping delivers every shade of colour accurately blended. Sunsets never looked so good. You can even go back on the TV planner by up to 7 days thanks to YouView.

This TV includes the 4K X-Reality Pro processor, which helps to upscale whatever you're watching to as close to 4K as possible. Even if you aren't watching 4K content, you can be sure you'll be getting the best possible detail.

X-Motion Clarity

Action-packed, fast-moving scenes and sports can seem like a blur. This can make it difficult to track a ball or keep up with pacey footwork. With X-Motion Clarity packed into your Sony BRAVIA 55XF90, even F1 racing cars appear as detailed as a stationary image. Get a smooth ultra high-quality image without sacrificing brightness.

Effortless installation

For setup without the squabbles, our Team Knowhow experts can connect your new TV to your Blu-ray player, sound bar, and other devices. They'll even get you online so you can put your feet up and start watching straight away. Pass the popcorn.

I have two Sonys and a Samsung all £1500 plus models. The Sony TV smash the Samsung out of the park.
I've got the 65 inch version. Great TV. I paid £2300 for it an no regrets. It easily 1000nits. No oled can go brighter and most oled can't even make 500 nits. Great TV and no burn in. Go for the 65inch version. It what hifi best 65in TV under £2500 for 2018. It's nice to watch and play games on a TV without having to refresh it every two hours to prevent burn in.

Yes. The natural colours, motion flow is better. The higher model you go you get better features like dolby vision support, brighter panel, (possible true 10 bit panel etc) if your only watching standard TV then you won't notice the difference. If your watching blurays or 4k UHD discs or streaming then definitely will.
Cheaper panels advertise a lot things here and there but they are very much watered down and won't benefit.

Yes they are better, but as with most things, when you reach a certain price point the enhancements are smaller and smaller, and the price is higher and higher.
a much better deal than RS one, providing you can easily find one in your local store.

There won't be stock issues on a Costco deal. Only time there has been was on a mis price.

Got the XE version of this. Love it. Phenomenal picture, ropey OS
Do Richer Sounds price match Costco?

Depends on the store. If you have bought from them before then they probably will. Go in and show them a photo of advertised price. They will ask for proof

I tried this once before and they would only match it if they could add on the £30 for the Costco membership too.

I tried in my local store and they did it. I have costco vip membership which gives me 2% back on all purchases. They allowed me to minus that to total price in Costco. So basically matched like for like. But didn't add the £30. In fact their policy is to be cheaper not even price match and give up to another £50 of.
Anyone got a picture of the Costco price ticket? Just so I can try get RS to price match

Not true. They are all on the same SoC apart from the high end oled sets. This is mid range but fantastic tv.

It's a different chip that runs the OS to what does image processing.

However, since the Oreo update performance has increased 10 fold
Is the Android OS going to limit the useful life of these? eg knowing how software updates are often poorly lacking after the first 18 months of release?
Will it be stuck on Android 10 for the rest of its life and then apps stop working as time moves on?
I've never used Android TV but know from Android phones how support can vanish quite quickly.

Yes I know

Chap earlier was referring to android and I think Sony used mediocre mediatek chips to drive the OS. I saw a guy playing on the OS on one of the high end oled sets and it was so fast with no lag. Response was instant.

Ah apologies hadn't seen that thanks will try and pop in sometime next week and see what they say
Great TV. I paid £899 for this model a couple of months ago. The Android OS is a little clunky but very versatile. The picture on the TV is fantastic. Local dimming via an LED back panel array really makes a difference compared to edge lit TVs.
Also, from what I can gather after reading around and taking to various tech people, the internals of this TV are almost identical to the 2019 XG model that replaced it. All other differences are largely cosmetic.
If you prefer webos, then the LG sk9500 is a decent alternative and is £80 cheaper from PRC with a 5 year warranty

It says it has it in the spec on RS "ARC - Audio Return Channel Yes" but I can't personally confirm this unfortunately, however at this price that will soon be a thing of the past
If anyone is successful with a price match with either John Lewis or Richer Sounds, please post.
Just in case JL or RS don't price match for whatever reason does anyone have a Costco card I could borrow?
Hot! Great price. Even with comedy splayed feet stand.
Does anyone know if Curry's price match Costco, I have £500 quid left on a gift card and I would just pay the balance, Curry's want £999 lol

Yeah just looked at there price promise, they don't match "membership" retailers. Can't see why not a sale is a sale for them, seems ridiculous.
Could I say JL for example are price matching, so can they then price match JL haha
