Sony KD-65XD9305

 

The 65-inch KD-65XD9305 is the first TV to emerge from Sony's 2016 TV range. A high-end set costing £2,800, it sits below only the flagship 75-inch KD-75XD9405 model in Sony's latest TV lineup.

Sony KD-65XD9305 hands on

 

Sony launched a number of 4K Ultra HD TVs at CES 2016 and we've been spending some time on the show floor getting to know one of the new arrivals, the KD-65XD9305...

Our experience of Sony's 2015 TVs was a bit of a mixed bag, but we're excited to see what 2016 has to offer. Initial signs from the

Sony Bravia KD-65XD9305 4K HDR TV review

 

What happens when TVs diet

Pictures often look exquisite ; Incredible super-slim design ; Lots of app choice ; Built-in YouView works well

Android TV can frustrate ; Average sound quality ; Some backlight blocking issues ; Horrible remote control

Boasting an ultra-slim design, an innovative new type of lighting system, a native 4K resolution and playback of new high dynamic range pictures, Sony's 65-inch KD-65XD9305 looks on paper like one of the year's most exciting high-end TVs. But has its...

Sony KD65XD9305BU review

  (Rating Hidden)

You'll need a big front room and even bigger pockets for this top-of-the-range 65-inch Sony. The heftily priced Sony KD65XD9305BU offers a host of features, including the latest 4K HDR technology. But does it back this up with performance to match?

Sony XD93 (KD-65XD9305) Ultra HD 4K TV Review

 

Sony's new KD-65XD9305 promises Ultra HD resolution in an ultra-thin panel but can their slim backlight drive deliver a decent picture performance?

Excellent contrast performance ; Accurate greyscale & colour gamut ; Impressive HDR performance ; Great video processing ; Largely effective dimming system ; Plenty of good features ; Attractive design & great build quality

3D performance poor ; Limited viewing angles ; Smart platform is buggy

The Sony KD-65XD9305 is marvellously engineered TV that combines an attractive appearance with features and specifications that have resulted in a great flagship TV. The minimalist design is striking, with an incredibly thin panel, whilst the build...

An amazing 4K UHD TV.

 

Hi, The XD93 4K HDR is the first flat screen TV that I've owned, I bought it 4 months ago and it's been a pleasure to use. It's a sleek looking TV with a not too reflective screen, a very secure stand, solid build quality, plenty of connectivity and...

Amazing picture quality

 

I have various other Sony products and have always been pleased with their qualities, so I didn't take long to debate over whether I should replace my existing Sony Bravia with this latest Android TV - about 10 seconds!

Superb Picture

 

9 months ago I bought a Sony 49" 4K Android set to replace an ageing (but still perfect) 40" set. This too had a superb picture, but, on reflection, even that wasn't big enough for the end of our room. My wife thought I was mad, but on 19th May last I...
