Sony Bravia KD55XF9005 LED HDR 4K Ultra HD Smart Android TV, 55" with Freeview HD & Youview, Black


3309134.jpg

Enjoy your viewing in the finest detail with the breathtaking image quality of Sony's XF90. It combines the exceptional clarity of 4K resolution with the brilliant brightness and colour of HDR to give an amazingly lifelike picture. Powered by Sony's X1 Extreme 4K HDR processor, depth of field is startling and pin-sharp, while its TRILUMINOS display is beautifully colour-rich and realistic. Sony's suite of smart features on the Android platform opens up a wealth of extraordinary online content, and its sleek design makes it a supremely elegant addition to the home.


Stunning HDR Visuals
Sony are one of the forerunners of contrast and colour-boosting High Dynamic Range (HDR). As members of the UHD Alliance, they've delivered top-shelf HDR to deepen
your view and show shades previously unseen in home entertainment. Expanding light, dark and every colour in between to extraordinary new levels, this model's picture gets closer to real life. This set supports multiple HDR formats including Dolby Vision so whatever entertainment you're enjoying, you'll always get the full, glorious HDR treatment with pin-point accuracy.


4K Ultra High Definition
To respond to screens getting bigger, brands have packed their screens with more pixels. This 55” screen has four times the number of pixels than 1080p Full HD TVs,
delivering stunning realism, natural motion and incredible detail.


X1 Extreme 4K HDR processor: Powering the display is Sony's supremely mighty processor for an image of utterly outstanding accuracy and realism, with 40% more processing power than the original X1 processor.


X-Tended Dynamic Range PRO: This TV has six times the brightness range of a standard LED TV (based on comparison with Sony conventional LED TVs without local dimming). Such a breadth of brilliant whites and deep, rich blacks achieves staggeringly realistic visual detail.


4K X-Reality Pro: Upscales non-4K content to reveal remarkable extra detail. It analyses every single pixel and improves contrast, colour and sharpness for increased clarity no matter what you're watching.


X-Motion Clarity: Keeps fast action smooth and clear with exceptionally precise control to minimise blur. The picture stays true to life with no loss in brightness. Perfect for fast action movies and sports.


TRILUMINOS Display: Expands the colour range way beyond conventional LED displays for a more lustrous image. This richer colour palate gets closer to real-life to make your viewing extraordinary.


Super-Smart Android Platform
Your Smart TV has just got smarter with Android. Developed by Google, you'll be able to enjoy seamless entertainment, intelligent search and the latest apps from the likes of Netflix, Amazon Video, Youtube and Google Play. Enjoy Chromecast built-in, letting you beam content from your smart phone straight to the big screen, Voice Search and explore hundreds of apps. This latest version has been refined for even easier, intuitive
interaction with your favourite content, and allows you to expand app storage space onto a USB device (sold separately).*


Android TV with Google Assistant
With the Google Assistant built-in, you can use your voice to find your favourite programmes, apps, videos or music, as well as search for information andmore. You can also control connected smart devices in your home (smart device control depends on compatibility). Chromecast built-in casts your videos, photos and apps to the TV straight from your smartphone or tablet (Android or iOS) via Wi-Fi. There are also hundreds of apps and games available for you to explore in the Google Play store.


Youview Catch-Up
In addition to a wealth of online entertainment, this set comes with built-in YouView. The seven day scroll back TV guide brings together catch up TV from across BBC
iPlayer, ITV Hub, All 4 and Demand 5**. You can also enjoy over 70 live TV channels and radio stations for free, such as BBC 1 & 2, ITV, Channel 4, E4, Channel 5, 5 USA, ITV 2 and Dave.


Slim Sleek Design
The XF90 has looks to match its picture quality. Cable management features keep cables hidden from view in the L-shaped silver stand, and a narrow aluminium black bezel frame maximises the viewing area. The legs are aligned to perfectly fit the
Sony HT-XF9000 sound bar snugly beneath the TV.

Great deal
Bit too near OLED £ for my liking. May be good if you must settle for LCD.
Good deal, but i'll be getting the Panasonic 58" GX800 as it has both Dolby Vision and HDR10+.
I love this tv and after the £100-£125 back this is a great deal in the 700-800 range. Ive looked at it in the flesh and it defo is one of the best LEDs out there but with OLED panels coming down I think Id spend the extra on and OLED.

Works out around £700, not seen a new OLED for that price.

£300+ between this and OLED is a big gap by my standards

I'm not saying you can get OLED at £700 archermav; more like, the price/quality ratio is maybe a touch better on OLED.

If your planning on only watching an OLED for 3hrs a day I would recommend the LG c9 but if your watching any more than that then your running the risk of a lot of burn in issues. I have an OLED as a family tv and is on usually 6hrs a day and possibly 12hrs at the weekend and it’s suffered terrible burn in and that’s why I’ve got to go back to LED

Panasonic plasma and oled are great but they've never made a decent never mind good LCD display. Main reason to avoid there LCD lineup is reflections honestly you'll see more of what's going on in your sitting area rather than what's on the box.

Hey. My parents have one of the older LG OLEDs. Its a curved one and the colour still blows me away. The black levels are insane and viewing angles are great. I havent checked the screen burn yet. I should tho. TVs usually on for 6-7 hours a day min I reckon.

Only issue I found was the dimming on their LG. I may just get this TV but really wanted a 49inch but may have to bite. I read screen burn only tends to happen if you have static logos on screens or keep static images on the screen for long periods of time by this I mean 12 hours. Anyways, Ill check theirs out. Looks like you have tried and tested yours and screen burn is a real issue.

I second the reflections issue. I did order a 49FX750 and did see a lot of reflection. Not sure why its so reflective. Thought they would use one of those matt type coatings. Maybe Im still thinking of LCDs from 10 years ago lol

Always good to hear from an owner JS. Any chance of a mini review? How is it better and worse than the C9?

I love my LG B6 OLED it’s the best tv I’ve ever owned the web os is fantastic and picture is amazing but I’ve got 2 burn in lines in the bottom left hand corner. Once you notice imperfections on such a great picture unfortunately my eyes are always drawn to them and it ruins the experience. I really want to wait till they launch next years TVs with hopefully fully functioning HDMI 2.1 in most models

I mean, it isn’t worse than the C9 OLED as it does have its benefits like higher peak brightness for HDR and Sony’s the best in the game for natural colours and motion. furthermore the X1 extreme does a bloody good job of upscaling content to 4K Peaky blinders on bbc i player was stunning. the C9 shines in dark rooms with infinite blacks and incredible low input lag 12.9ms for 4K hdr gaming best tv on the planet for gaming and has ALLM AND VRR, 4K 120hz and web os 4.5 is smooth as butter both TVs are stunning. But for the £ the Sony is the king
Are we expecting to get £125 discount as price match and then £125 e-gift card (as offered by JL) for purchasing this TV? So effectively it will cost £701???

yes the price is £824 via price match and the £125 gift card on top
Have this TV - love it. Agree with the reflections, sometimes I have to switch off the kitchen under counter light, which seems to reflect off the TV in the living room!
Price match confirmed and ordered 😁

Have you seen the awards the gx800 is picking up?

You'll love it mate i plan to keep this TV till it dies on me I've always upgraded but I know this set will last me and 4k is the fine wine in pixels not interested in 8k to much
I have this tv and it is great. You can also side load pretty much anything from the google play store. The picture is great too, not an oled, but then it can go much brighter and you dont have to worry about screen burn..
Have asked for a price match, fingers crossed.
Can anyone comment on input lag on this? I've seen it's quite High on the 1080p setting and I'm torn between this and say a b8 or b9.

I have the same concern, the new XG address tgat issue and its 21ms resective in 1080P and 4K, if you enjoy FPS games then its 42ms in 1080P and 25ms in 4k

Confirmed price match for me
Use Kidstart.co.uk if you can to go to John Lewis's website. It is a cashback site like Quidco / TCB and offers 3% on John Lewis at the moment (i bought a TV a while back and the £70 odd quid paid out).

You're still putting down £824 on the TV, so it's whether you really need it? If your current TV still does the job then resist the urge.

It won't be a dramatic jump but you'll still notice the difference. To be honest if you're planning to move on your current TV to your son, then you will not be disappointed with the Sony. It's a good price for a well reviewed TV.
I bought one of these yesterday from John Lewis. Was replacing an 8 year old Bravia and it wasn't till the XF9005 and XG9005 that I saw anything that felt like a major upgrade. Just submitted my price match request. It wasn't a bad price with the voucher originally so I'm chuffed with this. Great deal, thanks OP.
I've read in the reviews about the poor viewing angles of this panel? Would it be unwatchable if viewed from say a 30 degree angle?
I have the 65inch version and honestly say the lighting is way better than the edge lit versions .
