Sony XBR-X930D: Thin, beautiful and much cheaper than OLED

 

Sony's best 65-inch TV for 2016 offers extremely good picture quality for much less money than an LG OLED, and is thin and attractive enough to be mistaken for one when seen from the side.

The Sony XBR-X930D delivers spectacular overall picture quality, with extreme brightness, deep black levels and superb color. Its understated design includes a pencil-thin upper cabinet. Android TV's large app selection means you might not need to use...

More expensive than some similarly performing TVs, and not as good of a picture as OLED.

Sony's X930D TV should appeal to people who can't afford OLED yet still want a high performance, beautifully designed TV from a well known brand.

Sony XBR-65X930D

 

Well, it doesn't, but at least the price has fallen (a lot) since launch. The X930D is still one of the more expensive non-OLED TVs on the market, however, and most people shopping for a midrange TV will balk at its price and select something more...

More expensive than some similarly performing TVs, and not as good of a picture as OLED.

Sony's X930D TV should appeal to people who don't mind paying extra for its sleek design and outstanding picture.

Sony XBR-65X930D

 

Sony's X930D 4K television line brings native HDR video support to a reasonable price range, and really shows off just how good the new video format can look.

HDR content is visually impressive. Excellent color reproduction. Very bright panel. Good connected features.

Middling black levels. Remote and Android TV operating system are a bit clunky.

Conclusions With the XBR-65X930D, Sony melds a genuinely impressive HDR-capable panel with some odd design choices. The picture is hard to beat outside of a much more expensive OLED television like the LG OLED65G6P, which can't get nearly as bright. If...

A Review of the Sony X930C 4K Ultra HD 120Hz 3D Smart LED TV (2015 Model) – XBR65X930C

 

The XBR-65X930C from Sony is without a doubt one of the two or three best-non OLED 4K TVs on sale today. Along with its slightly larger cousin the XBR65X940C, it's almost perfectly matched with Samsung's JS9500 SUHD 4K TV model . What this means is...

Absolutely gorgeous Triluminos color ; Almost OLED-like contrast control ; Outstanding 4K upscaling ; Major Android TV connectivity ; Superb full-array LED backlighting ; The best sound on the market

Bulky body design due to speakers ; Android TV could be refined further

Just as we said about the Sony XBR75X9405C, we can’t not recommend this virtually identical cousin of that latter model. The XBR-65X930C offers some of the best specs on the market as far as LED/LCD TVs are concerned and is easily a rival to Samsung’s...

Expert review by : Thomas J. Norton (soundandvision.com)

Sony XBR-65X930D LCD Ultra HDTV Review

 

Full-array local dimming remains the gold standard for LCD Ultra HDTVs, but Sony has now upped the ante with the best edge-lit set we've seen.

Impressive edge-lit local dimming; Respectable off-axis viewing; Bright, punchy HDR

Often redundant menus; Tight remote control layout

Sony KD-65X9305C

 

The 65X9305C is Sony's flagship 65-inch 4K UHD TV. It combines Sony's latest X1 video processing system with an Android TV smart interface and a proprietary ‘magnetic fluid' speaker solution.

Spectacular colour performance ; Bright, detailed pictures with 4K and HD alike ; Stunning sound for a TV

Light inconsistencies at the left and right edges ; Clumsy on/off backlight during very dark scenes ; Android system can be overbearing and sluggish

Excellent TV!

 

I am extremely impressed with the 940C. Colors are accurate out of the box, blacks are deeper than my Samsung F8500 plasma, and motion is flawless. On top of that, a new FW update came out today (8/22/2015) that supports full 4k and HDR at 4:4:4 60fps....

Extraordinary Quality and Worth it

 

This is the best TV I have ever seen for home viewing of compressed off air, cable or internet. I ran a Post Production facility for years and was a pioneer of HD post for movies and broadcast. I am used to looking at uncompressed images on...

Only one complaint, too much Bass and not enough Treble. Can't figure out how to increase Treble. Any help?

Very Disappointed live TV and upscaling, returned

 

GOOD: streaming and movies - good image quality, upscaling was acceptable. BAD: live TV image quality especially from 720p source; Android OS is buggy and had to reset the TV various times; poor technical support We had this TV for 3 weeks. It is a...
