The mid-range TVs are requested by the majority of users because they offer interesting features for a price that is sometimes cheap. New models have been coming out this year that continue to improve the experience by integrating new features. Among so many options, Sony has a striking model, which stands out for maintaining balance in its different sections. Therefore, we want to analyze in detail what the Sony BRAVIA KD-50X75WL has for us that seems attractive to us for all that it offers.

Design

The Sony BRAVIA 50X75WL offers a modern aesthetic that slightly improves its appearance compared to previous models due to the inclusion of new details, so we notice a striking appearance from any angle. However, we must take into account details regarding its appearance.

Firstly, we are dealing with the 50-inch version that requires adequate space for its installation. Obviously it will be ideal for medium-sized rooms or rooms. To receive a better placement we can purchase the VESA support, yes, it is a product that is purchased separately.

The best thing will be to place the Sony BRAVIA KD50X75WL directly on the wall, so we get a better view of the front, which from our point of view is the most striking because it provides thin bezels, which create an elegant environment, in addition, it has a chassis black.

In the rear we see a slightly voluminous space that is not annoying as it happens in other versions, therefore, the aesthetics improve a lot. Another interesting detail is that the construction implements good quality materials that improve resistance .

Connectivity

This TV integrates four HDMI 2.0 (CEC) inputs  that provide a convenient experience when connecting compatible devices. The reality is that performance improves thanks to the  ARC ,  ALLM  and  eARC functions that serve to improve the performance of everything we see.

It also works with two USB 2.0 ports  that let you play videos, pictures, and even music from compatible drives. However, it has another function of greater interest for those who want to view its content at another time. An 80GB drive is required.

There will be other interesting connections such as the  Ethernet port ,  optical audio output  ,  headphone   jack  and  an  antenna . In the table of specifications you will be able to see the compatible tuners that really allow the scanning of both terrestrial, satellite and cable channels.

The wireless theme does not disappoint either, although it does have disadvantages in comparison to some models of its competition. Here we have a Wi-Fi Direct connection  ,  Bluetooth 4.2  and  DLNA . Options that will improve your experience when using the television wirelessly.

Image quality and functions in general

The Sony BRAVIA KD-50X75WL shows us an acceptable image thanks to the optimization they use. However, it will not be a quality that becomes incredible, therefore, we must consider even the smallest detail.  Firstly, it includes a 4K resolution  that tries to show realistic scenes.

The negative point is that it includes a Direct LED backlight  that in theory is the one with the least power, as if that were not enough, it does not have local dimming, which causes us to see significant quality losses in very dark or bright environments. Therefore, we must take care of the placement a little.

The good thing is that this television is equipped with a good variety of technologies that improve essential parameters such as color, contrast, brightness, and saturation. Among the most notable functions we find 4K X-Reality Pro ,  Dynamic Contrast Enhancer ,  Frame Dimming  and  Live Color Technology .

It also features  HDR10 ,  HLG  , and  Dolby Vision  which are important technologies for quality enhancement in movies and video games. Of course, it must be compatible otherwise we will not notice the change. The maximum frequency will be  60 Hz  , which is acceptable to be a mid-range.

Sound

Another negative point of this television is its audio that only has a total of 20W . We really can’t complain too much as it’s usually average sound within this category, however  these days the content requires a bit more quality from the speakers .

The good thing is that they integrate important functions such as  Acoustic Auto Calibration ,  X-Balanced speaker ,  DTS Digital Surround ,  Dolby Atmos  and  Dolby Audio . These technologies improve the experience considerably, although the problem continues to be the power of the speakers.

Software analysis

The Sony BRAVIA 50X75WL comes with the latest version of Google TV , so we found better optimization and security at the same time, although that’s partly because this TV includes a 4K X1 quad-core processor, as well as includes an internal memory of 16 GB .

In this way there will be no problem when downloading and installing various applications. We are offered a very complete store that offers more than 7,000 options , although not all of them are functional. However, it includes today’s most popular apps among many other options.

Another attraction of the Sony BRAVIA KD50X75WL is that it works through Google Assistant and Alexa voice assistants   that improve control of certain features. Finally, we must mention that it is possible to transmit from an iPhone, iPad or Mac thanks to  Apple AirPlay  and  Apple Homekit.

It works with an attractive system that stands out for the variety of features it includes, which provide superior entertainment
