Sony KD-43XD8099 Bravia 4K TV
Sony KD-43XD8099 Bravia is one of the best in the 40-50 inch 4K TV class
As one of the absolute leaders in modern TVs, Sony represents a titanic shift in home entertainment. We will look at one of their 4K models – the Bravia XD8000 series, more specifically the 43-inch Bravia XD8099.
Initially, this TV set catches the eye with its sleek looks – Sony TVs are famous for the chic shape. The XD8099 takes it a step further with the sleek aluminum frame, trademark central stand and convenient cable placement at the back and through the stand so you can hide the wires.
The TV comes with Android OS which is very convenient for users that prefer Google’s products through the years and use Android-based mobile devices. You can download apps from Google Play, personalize the TV just like your mobiles and stream content from your smartphone to the TV. You can also use Voice search, Netflix and so much more. The TV supports Playstation now as well so you can play on the TV if you have a Playstation controller.
This Bravia maintains 4K HDR resolution and offers a greater colour palette than previous Sony models. Sony backs the depth-enhancing tech with the innovative TRILUMONOS backlight and crisp 800Hz motion rate. This model delivers top-shelf HDR with a staggering 10-bit colour depth.
The upscaling 4K X-Reality PRO feature boosts the picture quality of everything you watch – whether it will be an 1080p Blu-Ray or very low-resolution Web video to 4K. After analysing each pixel and comparing patterns, the system restores detail lost in compression and transmission. The system also reduces noise and reproduces optimum contrast, colour and sharpness.
Sony’s TRILUMINOS Display Technology expands the range of colours of that you see on more conventional LED displays so the picture you get is treated with deeper reds, more natural greens and sharper blues. With Motionflow XR 400Hz, every image on the screen refreshes at a higher rate than normal. Sports and fast-moving action look noticeably smoother, sharper and more natural, with reduced blur and judder.
