15 Reasons For

Good Brand

Mid-size TVs manufactured by Sony have good ratings on average. We also checked the reviews for all televisions (not just mid-size TVs) and found that Sony also has good ratings across its entire range.

3D Compatible

The KDL-43W809 is 3D compatible, which is unusual. Most of the other televisions that were released more than a year ago are not 3D compatible.

We compared this TV to all the other 3D compatible TVs and we think the KDL-43W805[pl_2803097_price], and the KDL-43W807[pl_2803096_price] both from Sony or the LG 32LF650[plb_2898998_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Supports Smart TV Features

Like most of the other televisions that have been around for around the same time as the KDL-43W809, the KDL-43W809 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 Sony KDL-40W705[plb_2796116_price], or the Samsung UE40J6300[plb_2824298_price] which has better reviews.

We compared all the other TVs which also support smart TV features to this television and we think the Philips 32PFT6500[plb_2940108_price] is also worth considering.
