8 Reasons Against

Very High Running Costs

Whilst the energy efficiency rating of this television is A+, the KDL-49WD758 is one of the most expensive to run mid-size TVs that have been available for the last year that we have assessed for running costs. Based on average energy prices, we estimate the KDL-49WD758 will cost £101 over 5 years to run.

Not 3D Compatible

The KDL-49WD758 is not 3D compatible, although this is within the context that most of the other recently released TVs are also not 3D compatible.

If you want a television that is 3D compatible then you might also want to look at the Samsung UE40F6100 (£574.50).

Chart Edit

Very Slow Refresh Rate
