What can be said about the KD43XG7002ABU from Sony ?

Presentation of the Sony KD43XG7002ABU

Sony is now an important television manufacturer, and proposes this basic model KD43XG7002ABU, a possible choice tested by our Laboratory.
First, the size : 43 inches on this device.
It is clearly among the other rivals models. No more no less.
Concerning technology, it is worth noting that this model is delivered with a Ultra HD 4K resolution.  From our point of view it is interesting. Given the price, this model appears as a good choice. Not too expensive but anyway it is made with elements which we think will withstand in the long run .
If you are considering buying the Sony KD43XG7002ABU, read on to see if it is really worth it.

KD43XG7002ABU from Sony – Design

With its design identical in every respect to the competition, this Sony KD43XG7002ABU could have difficulty distinguishing itself in a tense entry-level market.
The design of the Sony KD43XG7002ABU has nothing to do with that of the other models in the Sony XG70 series.
Who said that entry-level products could not benefit from quality design? That’s the thought we can face each other with this TV set. That nothing is impossible for Sony.
The Sony KD43XG7002ABU is quite standard, flat.
With an interesting size of 43 inches, it has a typical piano black color.
As far as the base is concerned, there are also things to say. 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.Ultimately, the Sony KD43XG7002ABU is a TV with a design that is simple and efficient.

KD43XG7002ABU from Sony – The screen

The new Sony offers an image with disappointing contrasts. It has pale, dark and shallow colours. This translates into completely washed out blacks that do not allow you to enjoy a movie properly in the dark.
Sony remains anchored in its technological choices and decides to equip its new television set with it. It’s LED and that’s good because the image result is excellent. It is one of the best devices in its range.

The Sony television set displays a Ultra HD 4K resolution. Which puts it among the above-average TVs in its range.
In addition, with a screen of 43 inches, the KD43XG7002ABU belongs to the series of standard models in its range.Whatever the characteristics, it is still a beautiful screen. On this point, don’t worry.
Designed with a frequency of 60 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.
In addition, Sony has decided to use its mastery of advanced technology on this device, which allows it to benefit from a high quality Ultra HD 4K image resolution.
In conclusion on the display, with the KD43XG7002ABU Sony helps you to choose a low-end TV set, which will be perfectly at home in your kitchen.

The sound of the Sony KD43XG7002ABU

In general, the sounds are well reproduced; but you have to forget about bass and low-midrange. It will be preferable to use an external system to enjoy better audio immersion.
The television set is equipped with  two speakers and provides a sound power of 10 W.
In any case, the global power is at the same level as its competitors.
However, we will recommend to add speakers that will allow a better experience.

In short, sound is not the characteristic that will make you buy the KD43XG7002ABU Sony. Low quality; enough choice to listen to the news or let children watch their educational programs.

Presentation of the Smart TV part of the TV set Sony KD43XG7002ABU

On the software side, the Sony KD43XG7002ABU is equipped with the operating system Smart TV. You have the opportunity to explore the world of entertainment.
With its Wifi or network connection (local LAN), this TV gives you the possibility to download apps or movies directly. An interesting option in the age of the cloud and online games.

KD43XG7002ABU from Sony – Its connectivity

Sony has ignored the number of ports and inputs available for this model. Probably a choice related to its entry-level positioning.
Whether it’s your external hard drive, NAS or game console, all these elements can be connected to this TV.

It is with 10 possible connections that this KD43XG7002ABU is presented. The Sony KD43XG7002ABU is thus at the very top of its range. The choices offered by its connections are simply enormous.

In detail here are the available connections:
3 USB ports, 3 HDMI ports, 2 audio outputs, 1 antenna input, 1 component plug (Video)
