Sony Bravia KD43XE8004 43 inch TV – Worth every penny.


Brilliant television with great clarity on the picture.

We are so pleased with this model of tv we were given a the heads up on this one and would recommend it to anyone thanks.

1st one i ordered had a shadow down the screen on the left. Sent it back, replacement ok. Here are the specifications for the Sony Bravia KD43XE8004 43 inch TV:

  • Make sure this fits

Good picture and easy to operate.

I love the amount of apps you can put on it.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Best TV out there for the price.
  • Top A**** product!
  • Looking for something to spoil yourself with, get one of these!

‘live football mode’ looks incredible. Don’t stick with factory picture settings. The blacks arn’t absolutely inky-black in the same way an oled tv would be – but considering the tech, relatively little light-bleed. For it’s price (which i consider mid-range) you get a great picture – you’ll get jealous of your mates 65′ oled until you realise he’s £2000 more out of pocket. Speakers are just about acceptable for telly, but if you’re a movie buff, 2*10 watts won’t cut it.

I bought this tv as it is 4k, it is absolutely stunning and i also have a ps4 and a sony blu-ray home theatre system and the brava sync control works better than any other tv that i have had.

Massive size, beautiful colour clarity and impeccable sound. I actually purchased two (thank the lord for sales) as me and my fiancé have what we call a gaming station. As we both play computer games quite often, we like to do so even when together.

Great product, awesome service by amazon when i contacted about a missing part.

Very happy deliver in just a weekgreat picture quailty free to air channells works well would buy again.

I bought this because of the reviews and i wasn’t dissapointed superb picture sound ok could be better the smart part is really good and it is fairly easy to set up i don’t know how long this will be on sale for but if you find one buy it.

As expected of sony products.

Excellent value, image, sound and usability. Clear image decent android os and brilliant image as you would expect from sony. Decent for prime video, netflix, youview, catch-up youtube, and xbox, i haven’t had a single issue with this tv and absolutely love it.

Superb in every way, clarity, colour and sound,bags of features to boot treat yourself.

Use it as a pc monitor for web design and video editing, crystal clear and no eyestrain anymoremaybe not what it was made for, but would recommend, quality, quality, quality.

Picture and sound are excellent, has many features, eg netpix app and many more, great smart tv. Has two tuners, one for freeview and second for satellite, so can be used anywhere. Well made and price, considering what you get for the money.

Excellent tv at a good price. Lots of features which can make it a bit more difficult to operate until you are used to them. Picture and sound quality very good and when connected to my sony sound system provides a great immersive experience. At the discounted price i paid, it was a steal.

Great service, excellent product, easy to set up.

Picture quality is virbrant and fantastic for sports as near zero motion blur.

I have an lg oled in the lounge, and bought this for my study (or den as my wife calls it) where i link ps4 pro, bluray and cable to it. I sit really close and the picture is amazing – just watching game of thrones and the colours and image are luscious – in fact its hard to see a difference with the oled though appreciate blue-ray is not 4k. Thats being said, netflix from the ps4 is in 4k for shows like jessica jones and looks amazing. The interface / hub is ok but not very intuitive and quite clunky, so i play netflix and youtube through the ps4. In fact i think the sony built-in apps are not 4k so another reason to use the ps4 – though you have to use the right hdmi input to get 4k. One other point is don’t obscure the sensor which is in the middle below the screen. I had the ps4 camera there and was just about to return the tv, as i could not for love for money get the remote control to work. By luck i moved the camera, and hey presto, the remote sensor was being obscuredoverall, a great tv, though i see the price has gone up considerably since the start of the year.

The android tv is the best tv for me. 4k is truly amazing just watching the slow mo guys videos is a good enough reason for me to get this one.

One thought on “Sony Bravia KD43XE8004 43 inch TV – Worth every penny.

  1. 2.0 out of 5 stars If you don't have an aerial or cable, a lot of apps don't work
    A lot of other reviewers have already talked about picture and sound quality, not a lot for me to say. The only really notable thing is brightness – white is incredibly bright even when brightness is set to minimum. I like watching movies in the dark and every time there is a white scene (or you start netflix) it is like attack for the eyes. Sound is quite loud and, if you like, you can easily plug in external system. I bought a smart tv so i can watch tv from internet – amazon, netflix, all internet tv stations etc. I don’t have any cable or aerial and my home is not covered by aerial at all. I will review the software from that perspective. This is a smart tv running android os. It has a lot of apps preinstalled that you can’t remove and while google play is present it is not very useful because apps are marked as not supported by the device. For example, opera browser comes installed and chrome is not available to be installed.

    The worst sony tv i have ever owned by far. Poor picture quality, bad sound. Worse, the seller refused to help with the problems. Probably because they knew it was crap before they sold it.Just wrote it off and told me to go to sony. But then hughes are a british company so i’d expect no better. Despite promises to refund the item this never happened and then they stopped calling me. Washed their hands of the problem.

        Best tv i have owned thus far, picture quality is great and an absolute dream to navigate the interface. The android operating system gives plenty of choice of apps and suchlike, couple this tv with a good soundbar and your in business.

    1. 1.0 out of 5 stars Sony ..Be very Aware, poor product and reliability !!!.
      At last got this great sony tv. Once you get past all the spy-tracking agreements etc it’s fantastic. I really do like the tracking by the amazon delivery truck to your home, now that’s a great idea. Very serious issues with sony remote not being recognised by the tv. This apparently has been ongoing for some years now and still,the same problem exists. So be awaredisgraceful and sony have clearly known about this and not bothered so very unreliable. So back to samsung for great reliability and after sales service.

    Sony make the best tvs in the business in my humble opinion. Poor sound, but it’s a given these ultra thin tvs require separate speakers.

      1. 1.0 out of 5 stars Poor customer service over warranty
        We bought this in november 2017. After 9 months the screen produced a mass of unstable vertical lines that obliterated the picture. Customer service from sony has been very poor, with departments not sharing information and a contract repair centre with a dismissive attitude. The replacement is promised one month after the fault was reported.
