Features we love

Certified 4K Ultra HD with 4K upscaling

To achieve the Certified Ultra HD 4K stamp of approval, a TV needs to have true 4K resolution that uses four times more pixels than Full HD, as well as vivid 8 bit colour depth. By choosing this model, you can rest assured that you’ll experience the very best that UHD 4K has to offer. As the number of channels broadcasting in 4K continues to grow, your TV will be ready – so you can enjoy new content the way it was meant to be seen. You’ll also benefit from 4K upscaling to make more of HD channels and your Blu-ray collection.

High Dynamic Range

HDR takes viewing to the next level, delivering incredibly vivid, life-like colours that’ll make sure you enjoy the ultimate home cinema experience. By ramping up the contrast, HDR provides brighter whites and darker blacks, so every frame is super-dynamic and detailed. This means a more realistic picture onscreen, so you’ll feel more immersed in what you’re watching.

Smart powered by Android

Easily access all of your catch up TV and movies with Android TV. This intelligent interface is built-in to your TV and lets you access endless content, launch apps and play videos at the touch of a button. As well as being really simple to use and navigate, you can control it with your Android smartphone by simply downloading the mobile app. It’s also voice activated. Thanks to Android TV, you’ll have a world of entertainment at your fingertips.

Freeview HD with Youview HD

Freeview HD is the fuss-free way to watch your favourite shows.  With 70 built-in channels, there’s always plenty to watch. You’ll have access to 15 channels in HD too, so whether you’re watching soaps or sports, you’ll get great detail and a clear picture. You can also watch any TV you’ve missed throughout the week with YouView HD. Scroll back 7 days and catch up on your favourite programmes.  There are lots of box sets, series and films to choose from too – all searchable by genre, so you can browse with ease.

Great TV

Picture is excellent in HD. Great colour and sharp picture. 4k on YouTube is amazing. Even right up close the pixels are hard to detect. Only weaknesses are that the picture is noticeably fainter when viewed at 40 degrees approximatey to the side. On odd occasions when the screen is uniformly colored especially grey the back lighting produces slight but just noticeable vertical bands. This really does not detract from the viewing experience. Sound is good. We're not using a sound bar and have no plans to do so. Menus are easy to use and online features work nicely. We predominantly view on Sky but Netflix, Iplayer etc are easily accessible and work well. We've also installed the Spotify app. Voice commands are recognised well and make searching easy. We are very pleased with this TV.

Pros: Ease to use, Good build quality, Looks good, Value for money Cons: None

Sony Excellence.

This T.V. is regularly used, it replaces a Toshiba which let us down after 6 years. Our Sony experience has always been of a far longer life span than this. What we bought was pure television, no add on speakers, no sound bar, and what we got was pure digital Sony excellence.

Pros: Ease to use, Good build quality, Looks good, Quiet, Value for money Cons: None

Great TV for watching movies and perfect for ps4 pro

Absolutely happy with purchase, bought it mainly for ps4 pro but it's also great for everything else. For that price you can't go wrong. Thanks

Pros: Ease to use, Good build quality, Looks good, Quiet, Value for money

Sony KD43XD8088BU 43" TV

The TV is amazing! It's well built, looks good and the built in voice control feature is really good. The remote is particularly responsive and this is noticeable going from a cheaper less well built TV. Most people realise with modern TV's that the sound quality isn't best due to the slimness of the TV. This is certainly an exception to the rule, unless you are using it in a large room you wouldn't need a soundbar. The picture quality is crystal clear and 4K content looks amazing. I have this in the man cave and for gaming or watching films it's outstanding. I would definitely recommend this TV.

Pros: Good build quality, Looks good, Value for money Cons: None

Fabulous Sony Bravia Ultra HD 4k Smart Tv

When I recieved the TV the box was massive so I thought we would struggle to get it out. We were very pleasantly surprised. The TV even though it is big as it's a 43" it was very streamlined and lightweight so we got it out no problem. You can display the TV two ways, wall mount it or fix it to a base they supply, we used the base and all we needed was a Phillips screwdriver and the 6 screws that were supplied. It was so easy to assemble. When you switch the TV on you can set it up two ways, either by an android phone or manually. We chose the manual option. You just follow the step by step guide that appears on the screen. It couldn't be easier to do. You also set up your wifi when it tells you to so you always have an Internet connection on your TV. The TV has 4 HDMI slots for things such as games consoles and digital TV boxes, an AV Scart and a USB port which we have to used to see some pictures from a day out with a friend, he brought them round to show us and we just plugged the USB in and got to see all the pictures on the big screen, it was fantastic. I have found the TV to be like a giant android phone or tablet, so easy to navigate around it. It has lots of apps on such as Netflix, YouTube, Spotify and Amazon Video. Google store is also on there so you can download any more apps, games or music you would like. What I love about the Google search bar on there is there a little microphone icon to the left and it is voice activated so you just press it and speak and it will find what you are looking for. Saves so much time and messing having to tap it into the remote. The picture itself on the TV is very clear and sharp as is the sound, the colour is very vibrant. You can adjust these to your liking in the settings section. We have found the TV to be very loud so we only tend to watch it on around level 8. The TV also has Bluetooth and a parental lock on which is great if you have a family and want to restrict things. We have also really enjoyed casting music amd films from our android phones to the TV, it's just so easy to do by simply pressing the cast button. The remote control is really nice too, not too big and the buttons on it are quite soft to touch. All in all I have to say we love this new TV.

Pros: Ease to use, Good build quality, Looks good Cons: None
