Sony KD-55XD9305 review

 

The Sony KD-55XD9305 is Sony's top 55-inch TV for 2016. Picture quality from this 4K HDR TV is as good as anything we've seen, thank to Sony's new Slim Backlight Drive, Triluminos display technology and X1 processor. The TV comes with Android TV,...

We're wary of awarding the Sony KD-55XD9305 a 5 star rating. In many ways it deserves it, but the fly in the ointment remains the Android operating system. If Sony can prove that the problems that plagued it last year have been consigned to the bin of...

Sony KD-55XD9305 4K HDR TV review

 

4K UHD streaming backed by Sony's X1 processor

Ultra thin, minimalist design ; 4K UHD picture quality ; HDCP 2.2 compatibility ; 4K Netflix and Amazon onboard ; High-quality HD upscaling

Wearisome Android smart TV platform ; Gruesome no-button remote control ; Audio is passable at best

Sony's hero HDR 4K TV for 2016 is a triumph of design and image ingenuity, but usability remains its Achilles' heel.

Sony KD-55XD9305 review

 

This slimline 4K HDR TV is a technological tour de force and a great start for Sony's 2016 TV range

Sharp, detailed picture ; Great handling of motion ; HDR significantly improves picture quality ; Easy and fast to use ; Natural colours

Remote not easiest to use ; Picture doesn’t go quite as dark or bright as some competitors

This is what we want from an HDR set. It doesn’t reach the absolute blacks or brightness of some rivals, but the Sony XD93 trumps most of them where it matters: subtlety

Sony Bravia 55XD9305

 

I see many good reviews for the Sony Bravia 55XD9305. I haven't had good experience with the one I got in November last year. The TV had software issues in the operating side of things. It would became stroppy and unresponsive going through the smart...

Great picture

 

Fantastic picture when using 4K, on the internet, looking forward to seeing regular broadcasts. The TV does a great job of upscaling HD to 4K, SD is obviously poorer but acceptable. Sound is better than the Panasonic it replaced. I woul highly...
