Sony KDL-65W855C review

 

If you'd rather go Full HD than 4K, this big-screen Sony is a great buy...

Balanced colours ; Strong contrast ; Sharpness ; Size-to-price ratio

Narrow viewing angles ; Could do with more apps

Sony KDL-65W855C review

  (Rating Hidden)

When so many 65-inch TVs come with advanced display technologies or 4K ultra HD screens, it's a little hard to get excited about a mid-range Full-HD TV. The Sony KDL-65W855C might surprise you with its impressive sound, but can it really cut it in the...

Sony Bravia KDL-65W855C

 

It is a big screen for the price paid.

Contrast not as good as Panasonic plasma and slight banding on TVs panels.

Sony Bravia KDL-65W855C

 

Easy setup, lots of Smart TV functions that are easy to access and use. Overall image quality is very good.

Whilst overall very good there is some minor vertical banding and uniformity issues in the the corners, however only noticeable when looking for it and if you are particularly picky about such things. Overall not an issue at the price point.
