An affordable Sony TV with a great picture

 

The Sony XBR-X900E offers a combination of image quality, style and cool Google features that no other TV can match at this price.

The Sony XBR-X900E evinces excellent image quality, with deep black levels, accurate color, solid video processing and best-in-class high dynamic range performance. Its modern, minimalist styling is a cut above budget models. The Android TV operating...

Costs more than Vizio and TCL TVs with similar image quality. Smart TV and voice control features can occasionally be slow to respond.

The Sony XBR-X900E has the sweet style and superb picture quality to tempt midrange TV shoppers away from Vizio or TCL.

Sony TV is thinner than your phone

 

Sony has announced what it claims is the thinnest LCD TV in the world. The 55- and 65-inch sizes of the X900C series have cabinets that measure just 0.2 inches thick at their thinnest parts.

Sony XBR-65X900B

 

With a robust built-in sound system, the Sony XBR-65X900B is one of the best 4K HDTVs you can buy right now, but until 4K content becomes widely available, it's not worth the high cost.

Bright picture with accurate colors. Attractive design. Powerful sound system. Lots of features.

Expensive. Poor black levels for the price. 4K content selection isn't compelling yet.

While you can't count on Netflix and YouTube for 4K video unless you have a truly prodigious Internet connection, Sony itself offers a solution that's much more reliable. Unfortunately, it's expensive and extremely limited. The upcoming FMP-X10 is a...

Sony XBR-65X900B

 

At the high end, where TVs like Sony's XBR-X900B compete, there's the added fact that many people have a dedicated home-theater system, with big separate speakers and amplification that render moot (mute?) any audio built into the TV.

The Sony XBR-X900B series provides the best picture quality of any 4K TV we've tested so far, competing well against the better plasmas. It also pumped out best sound of any TV we've heard, bar none. Its prominent speakers and high-end finish makes a...

Those speakers: you'll either love 'em or hate 'em. Most people won't love 'em. The X900B is also more expensive than most 65-inch 4K TVs. The high resolution doesn't provide a major boost in image quality, especially with non-4K content. The 3D image...

If you can stand its speakers, Sony's XBR-X900B will reward you with the best combination of audio and video quality you've ever seen (or heard).

Sony XBR-X900B series review

 

There's a reason no TV maker focuses on sound quality. For speakers to sound good, they need to be big, and they should face the listener. What sells in TV land is the "all-picture" look, with as little bezel as possible, leaving no room for hefty,...

Sony XBR-X900 series: 4K gets smaller, cheaper

 

Sony announces 4K resolution TVs in 55- and 65-inch sizes, promising real-world, if still surely expensive, pricing.

Sony Bravia XBR-HX909 review: Sony Bravia XBR-HX909

 

Produces extremely deep black levels; video processing properly handles 1080p/24 material; relatively accurate color with linear grayscale; 3D compatible; 2D-to-3D conversion system works better than expected; numerous streaming video services;...

Extremely expensive; exhibits more blooming than competing local dimming LED models; black areas tinged bluer; subpar off-angle viewing; 3D exhibited ghost images along edges (crosstalk); does not include 3D glasses or IR emitter.

Although its black levels challenge the best ever, some other picture-related aspects of the Sony XBR-HX909 series don't live up to the high price.

Sony XBR-65X900B 65" Ultra HD (4K) Television Review

 

When 4K televisions first hit the market a year ago they were priced at the extreme high-end; but second-generation sets are becoming more affordable. In this review, I'm checking out Sony's XBR-65X900B, a 65" (diagonal) Ultra HD set with great picture...

Sony XBR-65X900B 65″ Ultra HD (4K) Television Review

 

Sony XBR65X900B Ultra HD Television Review

Clarity and detail beyond reproach ; Accurate color, grayscale and gamma ; Excellent scaling of lower-res content ; Sound quality is second to none

Average native contrast ; Image enhancements require careful tweaking for the best image ; Confusing Scene Select and Picture Mode options

A Review of the Sony XBR-65X900C 65 inch 4K ultra HD TV

 

Just as it seemed that 4K TVs could barely get any thinner, Sony breaks the bounds of expectation with the release of its acclaimed X900C 4K ultra HD TV., the thinnest LCD TV on sale to date. At just 0.2 inches thick over the entire breadth of its...

Excellent refresh rate ; Superb contrast ratio ; Very high color gamut ; Truly beautiful, minimalist physical design ; Full connectivity package ; Excellent HD upscaling engine via X-Reality PRO tech

Poor vibrancy at off-angle viewing ; No local dimming on screen ; No planned HDR firmware update

The X900C is going to be a truly superb 4K TV when it comes out and as far as Sony TVs go, it’s as fine a choice as any of the company’s other top-shelf models.
