Sony KD-84X9005 review

 

Is this the future of television?

Amazing Ultra HD pictures ; Striking 3D pictures ; Exceptional audio ; Excellent online services

Extremely expensive ; Minor backlight issues ; Small audio sweetspot ; Fussy operating system

Well here's something you don't see every day: an 84-inch TV with a native '4K' (now officially known as Ultra High Definition) resolution.

Sony 84-inch 4K TV review

 

The Sony KD-84X9005 4K TV offer four times the picture resolution of current HD screens.

Astonishing 4K image clarity ; X-Reality PRO upscaling ; Sharp ; artefact-free 3D

Stratospheric price point ; Uneven LED edge-lighting ; Not everything can be upscaled

Sony KD-84X9005

 

Sony delivers the biggest and best 4k TV yet - with a price tag to match.

4k pictures look simply astonishing ; Upscaled HD pictures look great too ; Best 3D pictures to date

It costs £25,000 ; Some (likely sample-specific) backlight clouding ; Not much native 4k source material - yet

Thanks to its beautifully realised 4k capabilities, the 84X9005 is quite simply the best TV we’ve ever tested. Nothing else comes close - not even the Toshiba 55ZL2 due to that 4k TV being nearly 30in smaller and not driven by Sony’s sensational...
