+3 More reasons for
The weights of 4K and 8K TVs that were released in the last year range from 7.5kg to 59kg, and the average weight is 20kg. At only 12.3 kilograms, the KD-43XD8099 is fairly light compared to most of the other 4K and 8K TVs that were launched around the same time as the KD-43XD8099.
4K and 8K TVs that are a similar age to the KD-43XD8099 have thicknesses of between 30mm and 99mm, and the average thickness is 62mm. At only 45 millimeters, the Sony KD-43XD8099 has a fairly thin thickness compared to most of the other new 4K and 8K TVs.
