Sony BRAVIA KD55XF8096 55 Inch Android 4K HDR Ultra HD TV : So far so good.

Likepicturesoundnetflix button on remotedon’t likeremote must be pointed to tv base.

Good sound and clear picture as i had expected.

Would highly recommend buying this tv.

Good tv with plenty of features. There is no lag in the remote as mentioned in other reviews i have read. Easy to set up out of the box. Recommends 2 people but managed on my own. My only gripe would be the audio which sounds poor on most of the available settings that are pre loaded. Maybe i will try adjusting those to see if it improves. All in all a great bit of kit for £474.

4K HDR – Immerse yourself in the brilliance of 4K HDR –

Took delivery of this a few days ago. The picture quality is absolutley stunning and the sound quality is good once set up correctly. The design is top notch as you would expect from sony and i can’t fault the android system – i’ve had no speed issues as some have mentioned. What is really frustrating is the limitations of the inbuilt youview system. You have a choice of either disabling youview and being able to record channels onto hdd, but not being able to access itv player or all 4. Or enabling youview and being able to access them, but losing the ability to recordit seems like a major oversight/design flaw, and is not mentioned anywhere before you buy. Except in online support forums which you would only find when searching for the problem specificallyoverall a great tv, just not without annoying issues.

Picture is excellent, super immersive with a soundbar. Android can be laggy and tv has suddenly switched off during a show twice now in a month of use. Hopefully teething issues to be fixed with updates.

I’m not really an expert on image quality and tvs but moving from my old 32″ samsung to this has definitely felt like an upgrade in every aspect. The 4k hdr content i’ve watched on this tv looks crisp, vivid and overall spot-on. Sound is alright but don’t expect anything amazing from a built-in tv speaker. Pleasantly impressed by the thin bezel and how thin the tv is. The only downside is that the menu navigation is a bit sluggish on the default settings. I’m a big fan of android tvs but their settings out-of-the-box can be a bit too much so tv settings required some tweaking. Once this was done though, browsing through the tv menus is snappy and comfortable. Perhaps the only not so great aspect is the built-in chromecast. Sometimes it doesn’t stream content correctly and it’s not discoverable by other devices in my home network. But 90% of the time it works just fine.

Fantastic tv, easy to set up, works well with my other sony devices. Only downside is the android operating system is a bit clunky at times but barely use that really as i have virgin tv etc. Great bit of kit and looks great in out living room.

Purchased in black friday sale for great value and the picture and sound quality is excellent and very good service from the delivery team with two people delivering it item ensuring it was handled carefully.

Great picture quality,but be aware freesat is not built in and freeview only works with a digital ariel. Built in speakers are ok,but only a 2yr guarantee here on amazon as opposed to 5 from john lewis at same price.

4K X-Reality PRO – Every detail re-imagined –

We like the bravia but not been able to sync with existing sound bar / sub and need two remote for volumes which is annoying.

This sony bravia is exactly what i want in a smart tv and it provides a great number of interesting movies. I am still finding new things it has.

Replaced a old sony bravia full hd tv for this one and the pciture is amazing with 4k and hdr, great for gaming a must have.

Ultimate 4K HDR viewing experience with HDR10 and Dolby Vision* support for ground-breaking detail, colour and brightness.

When the tv arrived it was damaged in transit. Courier arrived to pick it up and a replacement arrived to ireland within 2days. I must say the costomer service was top class. This is a great all round 4 k uhd tv. Not for the sports enthusiast motion a bit blurry. Other than that general tv shows and hd movies look fab. It also comes with a 5 year warranty. It was sold by ask direct and fulfilled by amazon. I would highly recommend them for your next tv. A happy irish coustomer is all i can say.

We purchased this as our main living room tv after spending a long time reviewing what is on the market and the different costs. Having read reviews stating the picture on this model is not as good as other higher models sony have released, i was slightly put off but went with the purchase due to the significantly higher costs for the next models up and i’m so very glad i did. The quality of picture is absolutely great and i would recommend it to those looking for their main tv. Slight issues i’ve had is when using with alexa to turn the tv on. To change the volume, turn off works fine, just on. Saying that, i don’t know if the problem lies with alexa, the tv or my wifi. I didn’t purchase a sound bar and the sound quality is more than good enough for regular viewing. If you’re like me and are considering paying out more for the next models up, i’d suggest save your money and go with this tv. It is a very well equipped machine in sonys mid range.

I’m a sucker for sony since 2011and this hasn’t disappointed. The picture quality is sharp and the sound very decent. The added voice remote control is really handy especially for a busy mum. It is definitely pricey but having tried others i much prefer the sony bravia android.

Great tv, lovely picture, plenty of settings, very pleased with it, only problem it seems to take a while to respond to commands sometimes, fantastic tv though.

Broad range of video and music content support, including Dolby Atmos and DTS: X soundtracks, DSD, FLAC, MP3

The first tv was damaged in shipment. The second one worked for three days before the picture went out. The third and current tv seems to be working fine so far. It has a great picture quality with decent sound but could have even better sound with a sony sound bar. This tv is very “state of the art” high tech tv. It really has it all and it is truly great when it works. I might have had a lemon the first time because so far this last tv is working well – i have no complaints with it. Crossing my fingers that it stays that way.

Clear sound and fab picture with easy to use handset providing loads of options.

Fantastic all round tv, i have a nvidia shield android box and amp plugged into it and it runs great. The only apps that i use on the tv are bbc iplayer, itv hub and all4 and they run great. I stream a lot though my nvidia shield onto this tv and the picture quality is incredible. I bought a 4k av receiver to go with it and i have been watching football, boxing, snooker and films on it and it handles it perfectly, don’t know why people say it goes pixelated because i haven’t had any problems.

Couldn’t find anything to fault this tv.

Thanks to one of amazon’s many amazing offers, i managed to upgrade my 10 year model of sony bravia to this fabulous tv. The quality of picture & sound is amazing and it was easy to set up even for a technophobe like me. I like the built-in hub too, so much for so good a price.

Having had a sony bravia for several years, it was time for an upgrade and this tv is just that. Moving from a 37″ to a 43″ isn’t a quantum leap but the picture quality difference is very noticeable the uhdtv is very clear and the colours are vibrant. The speakers aren’t brilliant but, as i always intended to connect the tv to a sony sound system, that was never an issue and it sounds great. The remote is easy to use and the smart features work well after connecting to my wifi. All in all i am well satisfied with my sony tv.

  1. The sound is appalling: speech is inaudible while gunshots, sound fx etc are earth shaterringly loud. Was continually turning the volume up and down throughout films until i thought ‘hey, this has bluetooth, i’ll pair some headphones’. Except after several frustrating attempts to pair them, i discover it doesn’t support headphone or speaker pairing.
