Display

Not 3D

The KD-43XD8005 is not 3D, although it is worth noting that most of the other new comparable spec TVs are also not 3D.

If you are looking for a television that is 3D then you might want to look at the Samsung UE78HU8500 which also has a higher rating.

Very Slow High Frequency Rate

4K and 8K TVs that have been around for a comparable time to this television have high frequency rates of between 50Hz and 1,800Hz, and the average high frequency rate is 310Hz. The KD-43XD8005 has one of the slower high frequency rates (only 50 hertz) amongst TVs of this age.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 50Hz refresh rate TVs currently available including the Sony KD-49XD8005 (£799.37) which has better reviews.

Televisions with a faster high frequency rate that might be worth considering include the KD-55XE9305 (£2,395) (60Hz and higher rated), or the KD-65XE9305 (£3,195) (60Hz and higher rated) both from Sony.

43 Inches Display Diagonal

This is a 43 inches television.

We compared all the other 43" TVs to this television and we think the Samsung UE43KS7500 which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If you would prefer a TV with a larger display diagonal then you might want to consider the Art 48 (£1,799) (48"), the Connect 48 (£2,399) (48"), or the bild 3.48 (£1,999) (48") all from LOEWE.
