Sony ranks among the important actors on the television market, and proposes with this KD-43X7055, an interesting screen tested by our Laboratory.
First of all, regarding the size of the screen, we are facing a 43 inches.
Its size is quite a good representation of the average screen : we are face to a standard screen.

The Sony KD-43X7055 with its simple design is an interesting alternative for anyone who wants an elegant television set in the mid-range segment.
A product that is correct in view of its price. A sleek but effective design. It has the potential to compete with other TV sets on the market.

The Sony KD-43X7055 is available in the Ultra HD 4K resolution. In addition, with a screen of 43 inches, the KD-43X7055 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.
Sony chooses a frequency of 50 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.
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.
My opinion to conclude on the display part. It’s in the range, without flourish or excess. An additional choice in the mid-range.
