Peter, Maidenhead Multi-purpose viewer

Score 4.0/10
Good points:
Good picture quality. Menus are quick and responsive.
Bad points:
This TV has been released far to early. Despite having twin tuners (so you can record one channel and watch another). The ability to record is not available until a 'firmware upgrade later this year'.

The much raved 'Youview' facility will not be available until a 'firmware upgrade later this year'.

Despite the option to set up favourites within Android TV. As far as I could work out, the program guide app is not able to use this and displays all of the channels.

I don't think this TV will ever be able to substitute my BT Vision box as I understand that (even when USB recording is available) you will not be able to record two programs at once and watch a third recorded program.

Finally, there is virtually no instructions on how to use this TV. the set up sequence is fine, but after that, you are on your own.

Mark, Derby Multi-purpose viewer

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Perfect Picture and easy to get setup and running if you are used to Android.

Connects straight to PS4 so when you turn the PS4 on the TV automatically connects to the correct channel.

Chromecast is integrated into the TV.

A Lot of input sources available.
Bad points:
Android did seem to be slightly slow at first until i started using the back button rather than the home button when finishing with apps like youtube etc.

Still currently awaiting youview which is an update

With up to four times the picture detail of Full HD TVs, Sony’s 4k technology produces images with new levels of clarity and sharpness, so even the fasting moving images are of the smoothest transition for a true cinematic experience at home.
The X-Reality PRO picture enhancement technology boosts content to Ultra HD 4k, giving you greater colour, contrast and depth to really awaken your everyday viewing, whilst Motionflow XR 800 Hz motion rates ensure you can enjoy blur-free entertainment.

Android TV means you’ll be able to enjoy content from your smartphone, and makes it easy to find all the entertainment you want to watch.
The seamless entertainment you can enjoy is enhanced with intelligent search features such as voice search, One-Flick Entertainment (remote sold separately) and smartphone sharing.
The simply brilliant Smart TV function gives you access to BBC iPlayer and Demand 5 so your favourites are never missed. You’ll also be able to stream from Netflix and Amazon Prime Instant Video and also their 4k upgrades, enabling you to watch the movie greats in Ultra HD 4k quality.

Freeview HD
If that wasn’t enough for you, the 43X8305CBU Android TV comes complete with Freeview HD and Freesat HD, giving you access to around 50 digital channels, up to 10 of which are transmitted in incredibly detailed high definition, for an impeccable viewing experience straight out of the box.
