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 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 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.

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!

Consumer review (johnlewis.com)

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...
