Sony KDL-55X9005A


Another day, another sublime 4K TV, and the prices keep coming down, too.

Stunning UHD and upscaled picture quality ; Class-leading audio ; Fair price for what's on offer

Needs care to get good contrast ; Very little native 4K content at time of writing ; Doesn't carry true HDMI 2.0 inputs

The last really key 55X9005A picture set up tools you should definitely get involved with are its contrast controls. For reasons we’ll discuss in the performance section, you need to be quite careful with the set’s various contrast boosting tools. Our...

Sony Bravia KD-65X9005A


Say hello to the first (almost affordable) major brand 4K TV

4K pictures make you drool ; Sound quality is outstanding ; Groundbreaking 4K price

Some black level flaws ; Uncertainties over future HDMI standards ; 4K sources currently rare

Other picture fine tuners not directly related to 4k include a system for smoothing colour gradations, a separate detail enhancer, an (eminently avoidable) edge enhancer, dynamic contrast controls, controls for the dot and noise reduction systems,...

Sony KDL-65X9000A 4K


Hands-on: A stunning 4K/UHD 65-inch LCD TV that offers unmatched image quality.

In short, the overall impression we took away from our time with Sony's 65X9000A was of not just a remarkably well-rounded and high-performance TV, but also a genuine Sony 4K eco-system that's much closer to becoming a reality than we'd previously...

Sony KD-55X9005A review


Awesome 4K and great Blu-ray upscaling, but it's audio and 3D that make this 4K TV shine

Pin-sharp 4K pictures ; Great Blu-ray upscaling ; Clearer passive 3D ; Excellent built-in audio

Wide footprint ; Some motion blur ; Average remote ; SD upscaling struggles

One of the best performers with Blu-ray, let alone 4K, the KD-55X9005A is a standout winner with 3D, too.

The 65-inch Sony KD-65X9005A finally brings Ultra High definition 4K TV to the home

Incredible image definition ; Superb upscaling ; High-fidelity sound system

There's no native 4K content ; Just one tuner ; Limited catch-up TV services

Sony KD-65X9005A review


This Sony 65-inch flatscreen is the first 4K Ultra HD TV that genuinely has an eye on your living space.

Awesome 4K picture quality ; Highly effective upscaling ; Best in class 3D ; Drop dead gorgeous design ; Superb audio system ; Solid Smart TV

Expensive ; Cheapo remote control ; Single tuner

This is flat-out the most exciting big-screen TV released this year. With stunning design and advanced picture processing, this 4K debutant impresses in all areas

Sony KD-65X9000A review


Sony's mesmerising new 55-inch and 65-inch 4K TVs make their debut

Stunning 4K images ; Triluminous layer boost colour ; Accessible 4K

Motion issues ; It's going to be pricey

A super TV that'll cost a lot, but will still be the cheapest Ultra HD TV yet.

Sony KD-84X9005 review


Is this the future of television?

Amazing Ultra HD pictures ; Striking 3D pictures ; Exceptional audio ; Excellent online services

Extremely expensive ; Minor backlight issues ; Small audio sweetspot ; Fussy operating system

Well here's something you don't see every day: an 84-inch TV with a native '4K' (now officially known as Ultra High Definition) resolution.

Sony 84-inch 4K TV review


The Sony KD-84X9005 4K TV offer four times the picture resolution of current HD screens.

Astonishing 4K image clarity ; X-Reality PRO upscaling ; Sharp ; artefact-free 3D

Stratospheric price point ; Uneven LED edge-lighting ; Not everything can be upscaled
