Pros and cons

According to our television expert
  • The Triluminos screen displays realistic and colorful images, thanks to the 10-bit panel.
  • The full array local dimming ensures lights are locally lit and dimmed, so dark parts of the image are really dark.
  • Thanks to the 100Hz refresh rate, fast-moving images are displayed smoothly.
  • The TV does not have a rotatable stand that allows you to point it at your viewing position.
  • The limited viewing angle decreases the image quality when you watch the TV from a diagonal position.

Description

Your favorite movies and series come to life with the Sony KD-49XH9505. The Triluminos screen is made in such a way that color tones are visible and really stand out. Thanks to the 10-bit color depth, the screen shows over a billion colors. That way, vibrant colors really pop off the screen and you'll see subtle tones at the same time. The Full Array backlight only dims the dark parts of the screen while making the bright parts brighter. This creates deep black levels and a strong contrast. If you're watching a space movie for example, you'll see the stars shining brightly in the deep black sky. The 100Hz refresh rate ensures that fast-moving action scenes are displayed smoothly. You won't have to miss a moment when a tennis player hits the ball or when a car crosses the finish line.

    Great TV with extensive options

    Sanni1968 | 13 April 2020 | Automatically translated from Dutch

    • Beautiful bright colors
    • sleek design
    • Easy to install
    • Sound is better than expected
    • can't find any flaws

    I've had the Sony KD49XH9505 for almost 14 days now and am pleasantly surprised. The installation was very easy, just plug it in and let the installation wizard do its job. The image quality is really very good; the colors are bright and sparkling thanks to TRILUMINOS and the X-tended Dynamic Range and the Full Array LED technology makes black really black. What is also nice is that the viewing angle seems to be larger than that of a standard LCD television, which is especially good when you sit a little closer to the television (then you are proportionally more people with a larger viewing angle). The sound is fine and you can clearly hear the difference before and after the automatic setting. The TV uses the remote control that you have to hold where you are listening. The TV then sends out sound pulses with which it adjusts the settings. Although it is not a sound system, you can use it without a soundbar. Voices are easy to understand and music sounds nice.

    Luxurious cinema experience with the right gaming essentials

    1303Manon | 15 July 2020 | In the version: 55 inches | No soundbar | Automatically translated from Dutch

    • Luxurious appearance
    • Easy installation
    • Perfectly suited for games and movies
    • Built-in Chrome Cabinet
    • Good picture and sound quality
    • Unstable stand, recommended to hang.

    Finding a television that is suitable for both movies and gaming is often harder to find than it seems. Especially gaming on a larger image means that certain specifications are really important. I've had this television for almost a month now and can say with certainty that this is the ideal product for that combination. In terms of appearance, it really gives you a cinema experience in your living room. In addition, the Full Array LED technology on it gives a more realistic contrast by making light areas brighter and dark areas darker. Also, scenes with fast movements in, for example, games and movies are displayed brightly and clearly because X-Motion Clarity™ technology with 4K quality is built into the television. The sound is also very good, since it can also be adjusted to your permanent place in the living room. Whether you sit from a distance or close by, your experience is simply excellent.
    Really the only downside that I had to notice about the television, is the standard that comes with it. This can be set in 2 positions, but both feel unstable. So I decided to hang it on the wall.

    Beautiful TV, with a small cosmetic flaw.

    • Android TV
    • Adjustable legs
    • Image quality
    • Sound
    • Easy to use.
    • No HDMI 2.1

    After enjoying this TV for 2 weeks, Sony has earned a big thumbs up in my opinion. The picture of the TV is magnificent for my living room. The LED panel has no problem with the large amount of light that shines on my screen from outside and always continues to deliver a razor-sharp image. Movies, gaming or just watching TV, it's all just as beautiful, especially if you put the TV in the appropriate position. The sound is fine for a TV of this thickness and price. The bass is well present and the middle and how tones are fine in balance after a bit of messing around in the menus. The thing that disappoints me is that this TV does not use HDMI 2.1 ports, while this is the future and certainly because the cheaper TV below does have this. for someone who is going to get a new xbox or playstation at the end of the year, i wouldn't recommend this one. Not all functions of the console can be used and I think that is really substandard for a TV of 1700 euros. Nevertheless, I am very satisfied and this TV will remain on my cabinet for a long time.

    Clear and well-balanced 49" from Sony
    • Android TV
    • AirPlay support
    • The Number and Position of Connections
    • Brightness
    • bezel color

    After replacing the previous 49" I went for this format again, but with improved options. These can certainly be found in this 49" Sony XH95 model. A colorful image with very good black tones on the other hand creates a nice contrast. Active dimming to the ambient light is nice, but be careful with (too bright) lamps or, for example, (photochromic) LED strips, this can have an effect on the sensor. The function can then simply be switched off in the menu.

    The Android TV has improved, or the processor handles it faster, but the menu is fantastic. Various (streaming) Apps have already been added and these run stable and fast. The addition of AirPlay is fantastic as an iPhone user, sharing your screen works perfectly!

    The standard sound is also better, but I can't really express my opinion about this, we always have the soundbar on (also with the previous TV). The first impression was therefore 'a little less', but that may be due to the use of the soundbar. The bezel (edge) should have been black by me, just like the back is black.

    A very high-quality TV (and sound)
    • Built-in Apple TV and Netflix 4K
    • Screen Mirroring
    • Fast processor
    • Great sound system
    • beautiful image
    • Not super thin
    • Awkward character input via remote control

    This Sony TV has a very sharp picture quality and a well-built sound system. I am very satisfied with this product. I was able to test this one for a month and had a lot of fun with it. It's like having a home theater. The device has a built-in Apple TV (this allows you to do screen mirroring) and Netflix as an App. You can easily watch series and movies in 4K UHD quality via Netflix. This is really a great experience! The only drawback that one can experience is that the device is not super thin. I can imagine some people would like that. This was not a problem for me as the TV could still be hung close to the wall.

    Fine!
    • Super picture
    • Connections easily accessible
    • decent sound
    • Not the "thinnest"

    Easy to install, good image quality after some minor adjustments

    Sleek design, Easy to use
    • Image quality
    • design

    • User-friendly
    • Choice of apps
    • Apps that crashed
    • Sound

    I was surprisingly surprised because I was really looking forward to the installation and I expected it to take an hour with all the aps I have.
    By linking your Google account and the apps that you could link / give permission via your phone, I was very impressed and it didn't even take me 15 minutes in total.
    via a direct cable internet connection.

    Connecting my game consoles was also very simple, he recognized the PS4 automatically and because of this the TV selected the best setting itself.
    With the Xbox One S I had to do this manually myself, but also very simple.
    With the Xbox there seemed to be a small delay with images that went very quickly but this is a setting you have to play with.
    The Playstation was fine right away.

    At first I thought the colors were a bit off but that's a matter again to play with the settings and now I'm very happy with the colors.
    only in the corners it remains a bit darker so that it sometimes looks like you have a vignette filter on but not very disturbing
    Would like to see the brightness a bit higher, but again not very disturbing unless you play a game with a very dark setting.

    The sound is good but could be a little better with some games it sometimes sounded a bit tinny.
    Very occasionally I had problems with some apps
    E.g. I sometimes couldn't play YouTube then it stopped after 2 seconds
    And at Netflix when I played something new I heard the sound but the image didn't start
    This was resolved both times by deleting and reinstalling the app.
    I was allowed to test the TV for almost 4 weeks and this has happened a total of 4 times
    But Sony probably can't do anything about this and we have to get to the app developers

    The remote is also easy to use although a point and click option would certainly be a nice addition.
    The Google voice assistant could be better, but of course Sony can't do anything about this and we have to be at Google

    The design is very nice and sleek and fits perfectly in my interior

    Well-functioning smart TV

    top TV, many options, beautiful quality image, very nice to watch

    Coolblue has committed itself to offer a solution
    • Very good image quality, not inferior to Oled
    • Sound better than expected
    • Easy to clean space under TV
    • Ziggo look back app almost indispensable
    • Sparkling colors

    My 2200 euro LG Oled TV turned out to be a big disappointment, because after 3 years different TV logos were burned in and you saw them even if you didn't want to see them. After submitting a complaint about this to Coolblue and having the problem looked at by a technician, Coolblue and LG offered me a good solution and I was able to purchase this Sony LED TV with the solution. Although the Oled image was slightly better, the new LED from Sony is almost equal and fortunately does not have the possibility that logos will burn in it.

    Top product and full competitor for OLED
    • Built-in Picture Modes are on point
    • Beautiful design both device and interface
    • 4K Netflix built-in
    • Airplay 2 & Chromecast.
    • Sound sounds good, but can't compete with a surround set.
    • Viewing angle could be better.
    • Light bloom.

    You really can't go wrong with this TV. Image is beautiful, and if it is not quite your taste, you can easily fine-tune this to all your wishes. Input lag is perfect. Interface is snappy. in short, a great product!
