Sony Bravia KD49XG8096BU 4k TV

We love Sony televisions and we also like it very much when we have a chance to review them. Recently we made our long term consumer review of the 40-inch Sony Bravia KDL 40WD650 which is a wonderful budget-oriented mid-sized smart TV and we are amazed once more by the quality delivered by Sony TVs.

Today we take a closer look at the specifications of a newer TV by Sony - the KD49XG8096BU. This modification is mostly sold in UK where you can easily find it in the biggest stores like Currys.

One of the features that we like the most in the KD49XG8096BU 4k TV is the TRILUMINOS display, a feature which offers really amazing picture quality. If you still haven't seen a Sony TV with TRILUMINOS display, I would strongly recommend you to do it in person in any tech store, you would be amazed.
