Cheapest I've seen this. Fantastic TV for the money!

Sony Bravia KD-55XG9505

X1 Ultimate for powerful picture processing
At the heart of this 55 inch Sony TV lies their flagship processor – X1 Ultimate. This processor intelligently enhances the brightness of hundreds of different picture elements, giving incredibly realistic and detailed images. X1 Ultimate is also the power behind upscaling FHD images to UHD 4K – bringing new life to your Blu-ray collection and non-4K TV shows.

Stunning contrast and detail from Full array LED backlighting with X-Tended Dynamic Range Pro
The Sony Bravia KD-55XG9505 uses a full-array LED backlight with ultra-dense structure for the most effective LED screen yet. This ultimate level of brightness control boosts contrast levels, giving deeper blacks, dazzling whites and truer colour between. The TRILUMINOS display with X-Tended Dynamic Range Pro offers true-to-life colour for a more natural and believable colour balance.

The smoothest images with X-Motion Clarity
Sony’s X-Motion Clarity makes use of the LED panel’s full array dimming technology to deliver smoother and brighter images. By controlling the backlighting with greater precision this Sony 55” TV offers enhanced realism, especially with fast-moving sports and action movies.

HDR support, including Dolby Vision
HDR maximises picture quality, bringing detail to the darkest areas of the picture as well as making the overall image look more life-like than ever. As well as HDR10 and HLG formats, this Sony is also compatible with Dolby Vision. Dolby Vision optimises the HDR format to give quite simply the sharpest, most accurate images possible. Very much an industry standard, Dolby Vision continually adjusts the picture for the most remarkable realism.

Acoustic Multi-Audio for enhanced sound
Acoustic Multi-Audio uses an array of speakers around the body of the TV to provide sound that’s as closely related to the picture as possible. As well as the usual down-firing speakers, sound positioning tweeters tie-in the sound for perfect voice sync.

Android TV at its best yet
Bringing together photos, music, movies, Internet and apps, the Sony Android system makes accessing a huge range of entertainment easy. Sony’s latest Android TVs are up to 60% faster at launching apps than before. This means that as you switch between YouTube, Netflix and the Home Menu you get a more responsive feel and can enjoy your content sooner.

Hands free Google Assistant for effortless interaction
Built-in Google Assistant and advanced voice control makes finding content easier than ever. You can find new entertainment, check schedules and control your smart home simply by talking to the screen. For universal control, the system also works with Alexa (once connected to a suitable device) and Apple AirPlay/HomeKit via AirPlay.

Make TV easy, with YouView
YouView is a popular innovation that brings together live and on demand TV in an effortless, intuitive way. The simple menu page lets you easily find live or catch-up programmes, without having to open separate apps.

Premium quality – right down to the remote control
With its softened bezel and striking, aluminium stand, the Sony KD-55XG9505 makes a strong statement of style in your room, without overpowering it. The supplied table stand offers stylish support, or you can mount it on the wall. Every detail is perfectly designed – right down to the premium, metal-faced remote control.

Enjoy all the benefits of a flagship TV, with the LED range-topping Sony Bravia KD-55XG9505.

How does this compare to the 9005? Is this just an update of that model?

New remote, eArc, android 8
£100 more and you get the 65" 9005
Just brought the xf9005 55 inch for 720 from Costco Birmingham

Some people complained about older Sony Bravia models having a laggy interface. This one has the "X1 Ultimate" chip which I can confirm is very snappy to use and also supposedly has better upscaling and motion processing. It will also get Android 9 at some point, or so I've read!

The processor on the XF was about 6 years old (apparently fairly sluggish at best of times but I have never tried one) and Sony was stopping updates on that due to old hardware (despite only being a year old) XG is brand new and snappy (I own this TV and have tried it) and Sony should support with updates for a good few years.
This or OLED ? Really worried on the screen burn when forking out a lot...know the C9/AG8 have things in built to help but still a concern...

Same here. I'm planning on keeping this TV for 10+ years ;-) OLED will always have deeper blacks but so long as you're sat straight in front of this, you probably won't notice much difference (except during things like credits where there is definitely some bloom if you look for it). It's worth mentioning though that the contrast gets dramatically worse as you view from an angle so take take your room setup into account.

Room is usual rectangular shape so main couch slap bang in front, only on chair to left on an angle, but not silly...

I really do think that burn in is unlikely as long as you follow the rules. That’s where I might fall foul. The other day I put the TV on, then went upstairs to check my emails... and hour later I went back downstairs and the screen was still on pause, Sky, so banners etc, didn’t care as I have an LCD, but it makes you think
Quite disciplined on turning it off so not too worried on that it's more sky sports for footy/cricket/rugby/darts and their on screen graphics....

Screensaver kicks in on my E9 OLED after a few minutes of static screen so no issue at all in that situation.

That sounds a very handy feature! Wasn't aware they could detect it accurately. Is there anything similar for channel logos or game HUDs? (e.g. moving the screen around a few pixels in each direction at times when you wouldn't notice it?)

It has a logo dimming feature that you can set to high, medium or low. Also a pixel movement feature that moves the whole screen across one pixel. I have not noticed either.

Xf 9005 procceessor isn't 6 years old mate, they only started making android tvs in 2015 i had the 1st one x830, I have 2016 xd 8005 and xe 8004 and Xg 81 for the bedroom, now just brought a xf9005 to replace the 8005 I have updated all to oreo and they are not laggy, response time is almost instant when navigating thro menus, the latest November 27th update improves things further on older sets to.

No problems on my 3 year old C6 with respect to footy.

Thanks, that's very useful to know for the future. I was sorely tempted by OLED but got a bit scared off by 1) price and 2) burn in. I'm sure next time round I'll overcome both ;-)

I was scared as well and very tempted with Qled or Sony, but kept getting drawn back to oled. Was going to wait for 48 inch oled next year but fell for a great deal on my E9 in Crampton and Moore. With the burn in tests to review and real world usage of 3 year old panel not saying burn is a risk and the new screen technology I took the plunge. HD and 4k is amazing.

How about gaming? Is there any lag on OLED?
Is there a code, or was it a short term deal?
