Expert review by : John Archer (

Sony Bravia 65XE90 (KD-65XE9005) review


Direct lighting and local dimming at a price you might actually be able to afford

Strong HDR Pictures ; Good value ; Gorgeous SDR pictures ; Attractive design

It could be brighter ; Very limited viewing angle ; Android TV can irritate ; No Dolby Vision support

Despite not boasting Sony’s top-tier video processing system, the 65XE9005’s successful combination of an unusual direct lighting system with Triluminos colour technology and an eye-catchingly affordable price makes it something of a mid-range hero. By...

Sony BRAVIA KD-65XE9005 HDR 4K TV Review


Sony's new XE90 4K HDR TV offers the promise of a direct LED backlight and local dimming on a mid-range model but is there a catch?

Direct LED backlight ; Accurate greyscale and colour gamut ; Great performance with SDR and HDR ; Good motion handling ; Low input lag ; Decent set of features ; Attractive design and good build quality

Local dimming limited ; Colour gamut could be wider ; Narrow optimal viewing angles

The KD-65XE9005 is the first new Sony Ultra HD 4K TV that we've reviewed in 2017 and it's an excellent way to start the year. The design is attractive and the build quality is impressive, whilst there are all the connections you'll need including four...

A superb TV set with a beautiful picture!


Bought the 65 inch version of the Sony XE9005 to mount on the wall of our rather spacious front room. Considering it's size, I was pleasantly surprised by its weight - two adults were able to pick it up and position it on the wall bracket very easily...

Great tv


Picture is great, 4k content very detailed on Netflix. The sound is also good. Got used to 65 inch screen quickly after trading up from 46 inch. Now it just seems normal and couldn't think of going for a smaller screen now. Early days but android is ok...

Beautiful tv with amazing picture quality


Bought it about couple of months ago and very happy with the purchase. Picture quality is fantastic. Sound is ok. Remote could have been better but not a deal breaker.

Absolutely stunning


After lots of research, I ordered this tv for my log cabin cinema. The picture is absolutely stunning, and the local dimming means black levels really are black, with plenty of shadow detail. This is quite simply incredible for an LCD TV! Motion is...
