Packing in a 3D, 4K screen and one of the smartest operating systems about - Android TV - the Sony KD55X8509CBU demands a closer look.

4K Ultra HD TV b the ultimate in detail
With its revealing screen resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels, the Sony KD55X8509CBU is ready for the 4K UHD revolution. The resolution is four times greater than conventional 1920 x 1080 Full HD, and it's a difference you'll really notice. The gain in resolution is especially visible and even close up, the detail and realism are awesome. Even other resolutions, thanks to Sony's X-Reality PRO 4K technology, are upscaled to near 4K standard.

Triluminos display and Motionflow XR1000Hz
As well as 4K, this Sony TV also boasts a Triluminos display, developed to produce truer, deeper and more natural shades of colour, with skin shades appearing far more natural. It's also fitted with Motionflow XR 1000Hz, which works especially well with fast moving action, such as sports events, removing the blur you can see with standard TVs. From a Hollywood blockbuster to a Formula One race, XR1000 makes a significant difference.

Active 3D for a thrilling experience
Once you've experienced 3D TV, ordinary TV just never seems quite the same. Images aren't just projected forward but appear to occupy the space behind the screen, too. Thanks to 3D active processing, the Sony KD-L55X8509CBU offers breathtaking levels of detail and realism.

Android TV
Offering the slick interaction of the best smartphones, Android TV is one of the smartest content managers and providers to date. Boasting features such as Google Cast, Google Play and Voice Search, this Sony is part TV and part giant smartphone.

Voice Search and One Flick Entertainment
Even with such a massive range of content, finding what you want is always easy. Voice Search means you simply say what you're looking for and let Android TV find it for you. Alternatively, one-flick entertainment gives effortless control of search functions via simple swipes on the remote's touch pad. Best of all, you can control all the major functions without your TV viewing being interrupted - thanks to the discreet pop-up menus.

Bass reflex speakers and Signal to Sound architecture
Although no match for a home cinema system or soundbar/base, the Sony KD55X8509CBU's sound system is one of the better ones. With bass reflex speakers, it offers a deeper and more powerful sound than you might expect. The digital Signal-to-Sound Architecture processing system includes technologies such as S-Force Front Surround for a more spacious sound, while Clear Phase produces a more natural sound quality.

If you're torn between the visual thrills of 3D and 4K TV then worry no more; with the Sony KD55X8509CBU you've got them both - and a lot more besides!

Apparently the last firmware update sorted out most of the issues.

They have the same wording on all their refurb listings, I think they're just covering their backs. If it arrives unfit for purpose I'll be sending it back.

Mine is coming from Aberdeen, sounds like there are a few they want to shift, probably because the new models are out in a fortnight.
for a couple of hundred more you have the KD55S8505CBU or for a few hundred less other listings.

Cheers dead4red69.
After reading the reviews i dont think i shall be buying one customers who have left reviews in January say that the latestest firmware hasn't fixed the issues and its next to use less, i suspect that Sony will have a lot of these sets to shift.
I have this tv, and I love it now that It has been updated to sort out the majority of the major issues. it is an impressive tv. sure the os throughs a wobbly every now and again, but just about every android device has these type of issues now and again.

I would imagine these tvs will be pretty much brand new, as loads of these were returned after a few days due to the issues. I almost returned mine a few times, but I'm glad I didn't. I had a problem since the beginning where the sound would drop for a second every minute or so, when outputting to surround sound system via hdmi. figured out a few days ago it was the hdmi cable that was faulty.

The review on HDTVtest is pretty positive and Sony are still issuing firmware updates.

Sony are really poo when it comes to customer services . Well in my case my ps4 wouldn't turn on if I put it in rest mode to download updates ect? So I sent it for repair sony sent my faulty ps4 back saying they could not find the fault so they could not fix it ?? So now I'm sending it back for the 3rd time I'm supposedly being sent a brand new unit. But it won't come in a ps4 box or have any leads or controller. So basically there sending another reconditioned unit? Like I say the customer service is absolutely useless
Thanks OP just ordered
To late now anyway all gone, servers me right to much thinking and not enough buying.

POSITIVES
• Triluminos Display for realistic, vibrant colors
• Excellent price for a Sony 4K TV
• Social Viewing feature
• Excellent connectivity options
• Full Smart TV functionality with numerous apps
• Compatible with all major streaming media platforms
• Compatible with Sony Video Unlimited 4K video service

NEGATIVES
• Edge—lit LED lighting instead of full-array LED backlighting
• Lacks Extended Dynamic Range
• Blacks on screen are bluish and hazy at times
• A bit thick for a 4K TV
• There are cheaper 4K models with the same size and full-array LED backlighting
Can't believe that I missed this. Only evening that I am out this week and I miss a cracking deal on a TV that was genuinely interested in. Oh well, back to the drawing board!

Even at £999 I cannot find a cheaper tv which is the same size 4k and includes HDR, which models are you referring to?!
the number of Sony refurb deals over the last 18 months is astounding. Their QC is appalling.
