6 Reasons For

Good Brand

Sony is one of the better rated television manufacturers according to average user and expert reviews, and Sony also has good reviews for its 4K and 8K TVs.

Only Released Six Months Ago

This television has only been on the market for six months.

Supports Smart TV Features

Like most of the other TVs that were launched in the last year, the Sony KD-43XD8005 supports smart TV features.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative TVs which support smart TV features currently available including the LG 60UH650[plb_3539260_price] which is cheaper.

Other TVs which also support smart TV features that you might also want to look at include the Panasonic TX-50DX750[plb_3392161_price], or the LG 60UH605[plb_3880979_price].
