Recently Sony has released information about its new model of television . It is the KD-55XG7005.
Classified in the mid-range category. we thought we had to have a closer look at it in order to check whether the constructor had done a good job or not.
A quick glimpse at the specification sheet : 55 inches.
Neither too small, neither too large. In short, an average unremarkable model.
Beside, this television is equipped with a Ultra HD 4K resolution.  Even if it is in a mid-range position, it offers interesting specifications, partly justifying its price.
Although placed in the middle of the range, the manufacturer has tried to offer the viewer an image quality that allows an immersion.
We will see in detail if their objective is reached.

The design of the Sony KD-55XG7005

The Sony KD-55XG7005 with its simple design is an interesting alternative for anyone who wants an elegant television set in the mid-range segment.
Innovation. This seems to be the key word given by Sony to characterize the KD-55XG7005.

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.
A noteworthy innovation for this model is the use of the Slim design technology.
This TV could simply be one of the best in terms of design for mid-range. It has nothing to envy from its competitors. Even when it’s off, you won’t get tired of looking at it; only happiness!

With a frequency of 60 Hz, the fluidity of the images displayed on the television set is not exceptional. In some cases there may even be image shift problems. This also explains why it is placed in the entry-level of its range at Sony.
Even better, thanks to its advanced technology, the screen of this television provides a Ultra HD 4K quality resolution.
To conclude the display part, we could say that it is interesting and effective; it is a mid-range TV that is worth the detour.

The sound of the Sony KD-55XG7005

A brief listening allows us to see that it does not work miracles. The sound is far from exceptional. That’s enough for TV shows, but not for home theater showings.
The equipment consists of  two loudspeakers with 10 W at output.
Basically, the overall power is correct, but without magic. Maybe if you want to or if you are a perfectionist, you can connect two other speakers with a bass boost to amplify the result.

In short, the sound is enough to cover your everyday needs. The KD-55XG7005 Sony is not designed for home cinema. That’s not what we are expecting.
