Expert review

Manufacturers may favour larger sets, but they still release a handful of 43-inch sets each year. The KD-43XH9196BU (sometimes called the KD43XH9196BU) is one of its priciest. It’s not really a high-end set though, more mid-range, but that doesn’t mean much. Some pricey sets do badly and some cheaper ones do great, so where does that leave the 9196? Let’s find out.

What's included:
  • Pros and cons
  • What is it?
  • What’s the picture quality like?
  • What about the sound?
  • What’s it like to use?
  • Is there anything else I should know?
  • Is Sony a good TV brand?
  • Should I buy it?
