Sony XF85

 

Sony XF85 review: Sony's latest attempt to deliver an affordable 4K TV goes badly wrong. This edge-lit IPS panel can't do HDR.

Attractive, minimalistic design ; Bright, colourful pictures ; Good sound quality

Poor black level performance ; Android TV is sluggish and poorly organised ; Unpleasant remote control

One day, I guess, a TV may convince me that edge-lit IPS LCD panels are compatible with HDR. The Sony XF85, however, is definitely not that TV.

Sony Bravia XF85 4K HDR TV (KD-55XF8505) review

 

Sony's good run comes to a crushing halt

Affordable 55-inch TV ; Tidy, cable-free design ; Decent picture processing ; Solid sound quality

Poor contrast ; Android TV can annoy ; Inadequate HDR performance ; Picture issues

The 55XF8505 is cutely designed and relatively affordable for a 55-inch 4K, HDR-capable TV. Unfortunately, though, that’s pretty much where the good news ends. The set’s use of an IPS type of LCD panel and edge LED lighting means it just can’t deliver...

Great picture and sound (with Cambridge soundbar)

 

Really pleased with our purchase. This replaced a 9-year old plasma and the difference is significant.
