5 Reasons For

Good Brand

We checked 1,318 user and expert reviews for Sony TVs and found that on average Sony has good reviews compared to other manufacturers. We also found that Sony has good reviews specifically within its 4K and 8K TVs range.

Only Released Seven Months Ago

Being released just seven months ago, this 4K and 8K TV is likely to use better technology.

Supports Smart TV

Like most of the other latest TVs, the Sony KD-49XD8005 supports smart TV.

We compared all the other TVs which support smart TV to this TV and we think the LG 60UH850[plb_3385401_price], and the Panasonic TX-58DX802B[plb_3758550_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.

We think you might also be interested in other televisions which also support smart TV including the Samsung HG49EE890[plb_3713449_price].

5 Reasons Against

Not 3D

Most TVs that were launched in the last year are not 3D. The Sony KD-49XD8005 is no exception to this as it too is not 3D.

If you want a TV that is 3D then you might also want to look at the Panasonic TX-58DX802B[plb_3758550_price], or the LG 60UH850[plb_3385401_price] or the Samsung UE55KS9000[plb_3346974_price].
