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 Bravia XF85 4K HDR TV (KD-55XF8505) review

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...

Good picture quality for the price


I bought this TV 2 weeks ago and I been using it for a week. initially I didn't want to spend over £700 but actually when I saw a demo it convinced me. The sound quality is good and I don't really need to buy a separate sound system. Overall its a good...
