Reviewed

This sleek LCD TV isn't quite top of the range, but it's not far off. The big change between this model and its 2018 predecessor is in the speakers. They sit at the back of the TV rather than pointing down, so the sound should seem to come from the correct part of the screen, such as a characters mouth, or an explosion in the background. Does this make any real difference, and what about picture quality? Log in to see our full Sony KD55XG8505BU review.
