About the Product
With unmatched processing power, the Picture Processor X1™ Ultimate detects hundreds of different objects on screen and intelligently enhances brightness, detail and colour so everything you watch is clear, bright and incredibly realistic.
The Sony KD-55XF9005 is a 55-inch, highly specified 4K HDR TV. It has a direct LED backlight, as opposed to edge lighting. For enthusiasts, this distinction is a big deal, not least because it addresses some of the most common issues with LED LCD TVs, such as tonal uniformity and HDR accuracy.

What customers say about "Video"
Sony KD-55XG9505 55 inch 4K Ultra HDR Smart LED Android TV
  • The brightness of the set really lends itself to High Dynamic Range (HDR) content in general, and specifically with Dolby Vision content.
  • Apps load quickly with the Android Oreo system, and the Netflix Enhanced picture option works quite well.
  • I like brightness to handle HDR content. Great color, even out of the box.
  • The picture quality is also very good I just wish Sony added the quantum dot for more vibrant colors.
  • Picture degrades once viewed from more than about 15° off center.

What customers say about "Audio"
Sony KD-55XG9505 55 inch 4K Ultra HDR Smart LED Android TV
  • The TV's surround sound is excellent - I was watching a show and all of sudden part of the sound seemed to be coming totally from the opposite side of the room - very impressive.
  • This is my first 4k tv and definitely enjoying the picture and sound quality.
  • Default sound from TV without soundbar is decent for such a big TV.
  • Great picture and sound quality. Wall mounted it, and we're very happy with the performance.
  • As with most flat panel TVs, the sound leaves a lot to be desired, and if you really want to have quality sound, you will need a soundbar.
Sony KD-55XF9005 50 Hz TV
  • he built in sound system is as good as any other similar TV, but really comes to life when connected to a good stereo system.
  • Fantastic tv especially fo the price, picture is incredible, speed of apps incredible and sound is very good considering no sound bar.
  • Sound without a sound-bar is surprisingly good although I will get one soon.
  • The sound isn't so great. You will probably need to use external speakers as the built in speakers aren't great, but that is standard with most TV's anyway.
  • This Sony sounds so tinny. Virtually no bass or depth of sound. I’ve had to get a sound bar to make it useable.

What customers say about "Interfaces"
Sony KD-55XG9505 55 inch 4K Ultra HDR Smart LED Android TV
  • Picked up my internet Wi-fi connection right away, no problem - signed in to my Netflix and Amazon Prime accounts quickly and easily.
  • Wifi performance, and network connectivity is very good.
  • Connects to wifi all by its self so I can just watch and do what i do when I want to.
  • Streaming from my laptop or playing a recorded video from a DVR will either stop audio or video for up to 5 seconds every few minutes. It only happens when using any of the HDMI connections.
  • Installing software update (Android) introduced issues. Lost connection and control of soundbar through eARC, spent a long time with Sony support trying to resolve, unsuccessfully.
Sony KD-55XF9005 50 Hz TV
  • A nice range of web apps are included, with very easy network setup either by standard RJ-45 cable or Wi-Fi.
  • TV was very easy to set up and with an Ethernet connection, some updates and then to go live in 10 minutes.
  • As for the Wifi connection on the tv i can report no issues for me.
  • The interfaces aren't the most intuitive, but its fine once you know how to navigate the menus.
  • App crashes sometimes, and connection with my phone on the YouTube app doesn’t always work due to connection problem.
