Sober but in line with current trends. Sony has asked its design office to make a product that tends towards the top range, but remains affordable.
The design of the Sony KD-49XG8305 has nothing to do with that of the other models in the Sony XG83 series.
The shapes are balanced and the overall rendering is beautiful to look at. A successful mid-range model.
This Sony KD-49XG8305 adopts a standard shape with a flat screen.
With an interesting size of 49 inches, unlike its competitors, it does not display the black color you are used to.
Another thing we can highlight in the design of this TV is the design of its support. Indeed it has a double base, in which we have a division where each part of the base has its place. With this, the TV is exactly the same on both sides, thus creating a very symmetrical and stylish TV that can be enjoyed in any room.
The charm of the KD-49XG8305 is undoubtedly its technology Slim Metal Design.

With a frequency of 120 Hz, this television sets itself below its competitors. The game mode is to be avoided, as well as the cinema mode, due to the delay that can occur in the image.
Finally, Sony has chosen to put advanced technology on this TV, which makes it possible to have an Ultra HD 4K image quality .
