Techradar Best in Class 2017

Sony Bravia XBR-55X900E review


This is the HDR flatscreen we've all been waiting for

Direct LED with local dimming ; Excellent motion handling ; Unfussy but elegant design ; Surprisingly good audio

HDR is a bit dim ; Rubbery remote ; Power brick is inconvenient ; No 3D support

It may not offer the same peak brightness as Sony’s flagship UHD sets, the X930E and X940E, but this 4K direct LED backlit screen is still a brilliant buy.

Sony KD-55XE9005


It may look like just another cookie-cutter UHD TV, all ultra-slim bezel and tricked out HDMI inputs, but Sony's XE90 line offers buyers something a little special: direct LED backlighting with local dimming.

Ultra-crisp imagery with uniform black-level performance and watchable HDR, make this an unquestionably superior Sony TV offering.

Great TV


Excellent picture quality. Sound is good enough from the built in speakers that I don't always need to use my soundbar. Great features.
