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 KD-55XF8505 review: HDR woes hold back this 4K TV


The Sony XF8505 is a disappointing 4K HDR TV in among a far stronger line-up - from both competitors and Sony itself. Its panel choice means its weak

Reasonably affordable for a 55-inch 4K HDR TV ; Powerful sound ; Pictures from exclusively bright sources look decent

Dark scenes look washed out and grey in a problematic way ; Android TV continues to be a troublesome smart TV platform

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...

Sony Bravia X850F Series (XBR-65X850F) review


Built for sports and everything else

Great for sports viewing ; Wide color and HDR remastering ; Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant support

Can’t be upgraded for Dolby Vision

Early impressions suggest this native 100Hz 4K flatscreen should score with sports fans whatever their preferred screen size, as the design and spec are outstanding.

Sony KD43XF8505BU television review

  (Rating Hidden)

The best TV isn't always the biggest, so the 43-inch Sony Bravia KD43XF8505BU LCD television could be the ideal choice for your home. Does it have a crystal-clear picture, and will you be moved by its deep bass? And is it simple to set up and use? Find...

Sony KD65XF8505BU television review

  (Rating Hidden)

Despite the popularity of OLED screens, Sony shows no sign of abandoning its high-end LCD business. New for 2018, the 65-inch Sony KDXF8505BU has a 4K screen, but misses out on the X1 Extreme processor and the extra HDR formats that the XF900 series...

Great picture with great smart features


Great picture quality and does a pretty good job of upscaling standard definition too. The smart features are excellent and being an Android TV, there is a huge selection of apps you can download from the google play store. Finally, the sound quality...
