4K Ultra-HD Processor X1
Behind the ultra high definition picture is a powerful processor so you watch everything with stunning colour, clarity and contrast. Whatever you are watching, from TV broadcasts, Blu-rays, DVDs or even 4K Internet videos, the picture is boosted to 4K Ultra HD clarity with greater contrast and more lifelike colours.

Smooth motion
Reducing blur and judder is Motionflow XR 200HZ. From sports and fast-moving action, to documentary dramas, whatever you watch will look noticeably smoother, sharper and more natural.

Additional entertainment

The X8005 even has PlayStation Now. This streams PS3 games straight across to your TV with no discs and no consoles required. You can choose from hundreds of classic games or catch up on games you have missed for the first time, at a low rental cost – all you’ll need is a DUALSHOCK 4 wireless controller (sold separately) and a broadband internet connection.

Got the 43in version of these and imo they are awful, picture quality sucks compared to my old JVC. Everything seems blurry, lots of grain and a lot of flickering. I plugged my PS4 in to play Mad Max and the picture was terrible. The smart menu and apps constantly freeze.. Avoid

purchased this tv last month best tv iv owned picture and sound quality is Exellent

I wouldn't know much about the 43inch models, However I purchased the 49inch 8005CB two weeks ago from Tesco Direct and cannot fault it at all. The picture quality is crisp, terrific user interface and the colours are second to none. Blurriness, grain and flickering is certainly not an issue, Just played Mad Max on BR via PS4 and it looks great to me!

It really is a great deal. I paid full price for this television two weeks ago from Tesco Direct at £499 after hearing nothing but good things and I must say it really has lived up to the hype.

You need more?
UK TV is broadcast at 50Hz so the TV is quadroupling the same frame 4 times to get this magical 200Hz rate. Often this image processing makes things look worse than better. fast action sports may benefit but don't get sucked into the numbers game. More Hz isn't a measurable reference when all the sources are typically at 50 or 60Hz. Some TV's may make a decent job (like this one) but 200Hz is plenty..... and the 600Hz you see from Panasonic are a bit of a technical swiz of sorts as only elements of the image are processed at 600Hz.
Hot deal as far as I can see.

Stupidly high refresh rates are largely nonsense, just gives that weird overly fluid motion effect. The TV is simply guessing the information for each frame above your source.

As far as I can tell, Sony don't even make this TV in 43", so not sure how the picture can be bad? They do do a 43" in the x83 series (kd43x8305), but that is a different model. Even then, the picture is excellent, and is rated at 900hz rather than the 200hz of this 49 incher.
There are lots of reported issues with the android software of Sony TV's, but picture quality is as good, and probably better than any of their rivals.

Initially and well for quite some time the Android problems ruined these TVs, they now have a reputation and even if people don't know of the reputation for problems, they probably haven't sold as well as they should and are heavily discounted now, that's my theory anyway

The most crucial function of a TV is to function as a TV, this was broken for quite some time on Sony Android based models, video and audio out of sync, black screens and other issues. Shot them self in the foot using Android really. If you want a stable system you never use Android and I speak as an Android user.

Thinking of buying the 43 inch version - have you updated the TV?

Got two of the refurbished 55 inch ones the other week

More than happy - picture is great

This model has received a feedback rating of 4.5/5 on Tesco Direct, AO and Co-Operative electronics. I also have one myself and like I have said previously I cannot fault the TV at all.

With regards to AO.com I have never purchased anything from the site although as far as I know they implement a 14 days free of charge returns policy if you are not 100% with the product. The site is reliable and offer a great deal on a range of electrical goods which is why they were rated the top online retailer of July 2015 by Which.

Not if you have used the product though and are not happy with it. Only applies if sealed, or strangely enough if only unpacked but not used.

I urge any prospective buyer to read their vicious returns policy. It's a 'simplified minefield' - you're not allowed too many wrong steps.

We're happy for you to unpack the item and inspect it properly, however, … We're happy for you to unpack the item and inspect it properly, however, if you've used or installed it, we will only make a partial refund to cover the loss in value of the product. Please note, this could be up to 50% of the price of the item. Your refund will be made within 14 days of collection.



In other words, you can unpack it (and consider its mediocre aesthetics), but the moment you've plugged it in to set up and yes...evaluate its image quality, you're stuffed.

They will do anything imaginable to stop you from returning the tv if you, for whatever reason and fully within your rights, decide to change your mind. They wanted to retain 45% of the tv's price in my case, so I've had to put mine on eBay as a result. Needless to say, I won't be buying from them ever again.

Please consider alternative purchasing sources carefully if you'd rather avoid a mighty headache no to mention financial loss.

dont think so... but honestly the picture is so amazing on netflixs that even if its not officially 4k, its pretty damn close to it!

I'm glad you're enjoying your unit andrewb366.

However, I just cannot say the same with mine, maybe I have a faulty unit - I don't know. But as far as I'm concerned, the way the unit deals with blacks in normal daylight just isn't good enough compared to my 42 LG (which is also an IPS panel). So if you were to watch a film with top and bottom borders now, the LG is perfect black, but with this Sony, there's a greyish tint to it no matter what settings you apply. I also find it strange that ifyou move off centre to say 45 degrees to the right, the whites on the screen becomes dullish grey (and other colours for that matter) - like if you applied a grey tint; not normal for an IPS panel I think?

I wonder if there's a panel lottery with these? When was your unit produced?

See, to me, I thought I bought a premium brand, but I feel it is some budget 4k no brand TV I'm using!

I'm at a loss with AO, as I have previously mentioned, that if I were to report this and the powering on issues as faults, they may they find 'nothing wrong' and charge me God knows what .....

Precisely. Spent 90 minutes on the phone with these charlatans explaining the relevant law, but they were on a mission to frustrate my legal rights to return the product. I am currently pursuing the matter with the Retail Ombudsman.

I'm sure image quality is subjective to a cetain degree, but I think there's some mes-leading advertising here with Sony.

I'm experiencing the kind of rubbish contrast as shown to the left (probably not as bad, but you get my point), but expected something closer to that shown on the right

I bought this after seeing the Tesco Direct thread the other week. Good TV. It's a bit laggy so that's something to be aware of. Wish I could figure out how to run Kodi properly. Anyone have a good link to any tips?

£25 trade in offer as well

I was going to buy a TV from AO a few months ago when there was a good promo code offer but after reading their returns policy I decided to buy elsewhere - even if it meant spending a few squid more.
