Weight & Dimensions

Quite Thin

With a depth of only 44 millimeters, the KD-49XD8088 has a quite thin depth compared to most of the other TVs of this age and type. Across all the comparable spec televisions that have been on the market for a similar time to this TV the depths range from 17mm to 100mm.

We compared all the other 44mm thick TVs to this TV and we think because of its better review score, the Sony KD-55XD8599 (£479.99) is also worth considering.

If you don't mind having a thicker depth then you might want to consider the KD-43XD8088 (£619) (45mm), or the KD-49X8005 (£649.99) (44mm) both from Sony.
