Picture Quality

Sony KD-49XE9005 has a very good picture quality thanks to the 4k resolution. The HDR (High Dynamic Range) provides colorful images which is very important when playing games or watching colorful content. Also we have good news for the movie lovers because this TV has local dimming. Local dimming technology dims the backlight of the screen where the colors are black, thus providing deep black colors, which is very important when watching content with dark scenes, like movies. The colors look good too thanks to the live color technology and triluminos display. Another important feature is the motion rate of 1000 (or native 100 Hz) which is very important when watching content with fast movements like sports or action movies. We will give 4.5/5 points for the Sony KD-49XE9005 review part of the picture quality.


Sony KD-49XE9005 is a smart TV so you can connect it to the internet and browse online content. The connection can be established through the integrated wireless module or through the Ethernet port. The Opera browser is light which makes it a reasonable choice for TV implementation. Also this TV has the Android OS which had always been a strong part of Sony TVs. Android OS has more features than any other OS, plus it has the Google play store where you can find many useful apps. The 16GB on-board storage is sufficient unless you plan to store many movies in it. Anyway, you can share your smartphone’s screen easily with the TV through the Miracast technology or Chromecast . We will give 5/5 points for the Sony KD-49XE9005 review part of the features.


Sony KD-49XE9005 has two built-in speakers with a total output power of 20W which is usually enough, unless you are standing too far from the TV. If this is the case you should consider buying external speakers that will turn your room into a home theater. If you are planning to buy external speakers you can also take advantage of the surround sound mode. The sound is clear thanks to the Audio Clear+ technology, but that depends on the content quality. We will give 5/5 points for the Sony KD-49XE9005 review part of the sound.


Sony KD-49XE9005 has a very good design. The color looks very good and will adapt to whatever color your room has. It has a narrow frame, which is a very desirable design feature nowadays. Also the stander looks good and it is not exaggerated. One other good design feature is the cable management so there will be no more ugly cables around the TV. We will give 4.5/5 points for the Sony KD-49XE9005 review part of the design.
