Sony KD-65S9005B

 

Is Sony's first curved TV a case of form over function?

Superb 2D picture quality ; Minimises many curved TV pitfalls ; Awesome sound

Crosstalk with 3D ; Expensive ; Backlight clouding has to be worked around

For normal TV viewing in ambient light, though, you can get away with sticking more or less with the TV’s default settings.

Sony KD-65S9005B review

Terrific overall image quality and outstanding audio; 4K upscaling; gentle curve reduces reflections and geometry issues

Curve doesn’t enhance images much; expensive versus its flat sibling

Sony KD-65S9005B

 

I don't think curved screens are the way forward. First we had the curved screens from LG and Samsung. Now we have the gentle curved screen from Sony. What's the perfect curvature - if at all. It would be fantastic if these manufacturers would produce...

Delighted with this tv, well it's more than just a humble tv, it truly is an all round entertainment device. I'm normally very fussy when it comes to products I rate as good but this one has compelled me to write this review. A great all rounder (no...
