Expert review

The 43-inch KD-43X7053BU (also known as the KD43X7053BU) is Sony’s cheapest 4K TV for 2020. It’s the smallest, too. And while smaller TVs don’t tend to do as well as larger ones, we saw some real successes for the 43-inchers in 2019. Will the lack of an app store hold this one back? Or is the picture and sound good enough to compensate? Here’s our review.

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?
