Bring detail to lifeAt the heart of the Sony BRAVIA KD43XH9196BU 43” Smart 4K Ultra HD HDR LED TV is the X1 4K HDR processor. Capable of delivering incredible detail with vibrant colours, darker blacks and brighter whites, HDR makes nature documentaries look more awe-inspiring and sets the atmosphere in gritty dramas.And with TRILUMINOS you get natural looking colours that are deep and bright. Just sit back and enjoy the quality.Always sharp, always smoothEnjoy every minute of the cup final without the ball turning into a blur. The Sony XH91’s Motionflow XR technology adds an extra frame between the original ones, whatever you watch. That means no matter how fast the free kick, the ball retains its shape, detail and smooth motion. So, you won’t need to squint to see that strike fly into the top corner.Talk to your TVNo more menu after menu. With Google Assistant built-in, you can control the XH91 TV using your voice. Ask Google to open Netflix, resume playing on BBC iPlayer, or play a funny cat compilation on YouTube. And if it’s already on your phone and you want to see it on a bigger screen, just tap the little Chromecast icon.It’s not just for entertainment, either. Ask your TV to tell you about your scheduled meetings, commute time for the day, and if you’ll need a raincoat. And if you have an Amazon Echo speaker, it works with Alexa too.Sounds as good as it looksA great picture needs great sound to match. The Sony XH91 delivers amazing Dolby Atmos sound that feels like it’s coming from all directions.________________________________Please note: Freeview and some apps & services are only available in the UK.

    Hi Mark

    Just before Christmas 2020, after taking advice from the TV specialist shop assistant, I decided to splash out on two “top-of-the-range” Sony TVs

    1]SONY BRAVIA KD43XH9196BU 43
    2] SONY BRAVIA KD 48A Smart 4k

    Initially, I was delighted with the images on the screens of both TVs both are ultra sharp and, in particular, wildlife programmes make for spectacular viewing.

    However, soon after I bought the TVs, I found that I was getting headaches, eye strain and feeling nauseous.
    I tried to work out what was wrong because I have very rarely suffered from headaches or migraine. I am almost teetotal and had just a couple of glasses of mulled wne over Christmas and have no more stress than usual!
    For my work, I have been using my laptop and a BENQ monitor for several years but over the Christmas period these were used less than usual.
    Worried by these persistant headaches [which persisted even when I woke in the night ] ,last week I had a thorough eye test and the optician said he couldnt detect anything wrong or different about my eyes. I am now waiting for the results of a blood test.

    But, it occurred to me that the new TVs could be the cause of my headaches.
    The introduction of these new TVs seem to be the only variables in my life recently.

    My questions are
    1] How likely is it that the TVs could be causing my headaches?
    2] How many people are thought to suffer from headaches caused by these new type TVs [LED and OLED ] and
    3] Do I have a LEGAL RIGHT to ask the supplier to give me my money back as they are greatly adversely affecting my health?
    4] Are there any different types of “smart” TVs available which should not cause headaches? If so, can you receommend the best ones?

    • Hello,
      Keep in mind I’m not any sort of medial professional. To me it doesn’t seem likely the TV along would be the cause of your issue, if that were the case many others would have the same issue. I’ve an LGC8 OLED TV and never had an issue. Perhaps the TV combined with other factors, for example if you needed glasses but didn’t wear them that could cause a headache (but you’ve said you’ve been to have eyes checked out, so I’m just using this as an example).

      In terms of returning the TV, a lot of firms offer extended returns over Christmas, recognizing people will buy gifts in the run up to the big day and then may need to replace them. It could be you can return it, in original condition with the box, for a refund. I wouldn’t have thought you had a legal right for a refund due to health reasons unless you can prove its causing health issues, which it doesn’t sound like you can other that thinking it might be the TV.

      I don’t think the TV along can be the source of your issue, perhaps the combination of using the TV, laptop, smartphone, tablets and whatever other devices you have is adding up to a strain causing you a headache?
