Sony XBR-X930D: Thin, beautiful and much cheaper than OLED

 

Sony's best 65-inch TV for 2016 offers extremely good picture quality for much less money than an LG OLED, and is thin and attractive enough to be mistaken for one when seen from the side.

The Sony XBR-X930D delivers spectacular overall picture quality, with extreme brightness, deep black levels and superb color. Its understated design includes a pencil-thin upper cabinet. Android TV's large app selection means you might not need to use...

More expensive than some similarly performing TVs, and not as good of a picture as OLED.

Sony's X930D TV should appeal to people who can't afford OLED yet still want a high performance, beautifully designed TV from a well known brand.

Sony XBR-65X930D

 

Well, it doesn't, but at least the price has fallen (a lot) since launch. The X930D is still one of the more expensive non-OLED TVs on the market, however, and most people shopping for a midrange TV will balk at its price and select something more...

Sony's X930D TV should appeal to people who don't mind paying extra for its sleek design and outstanding picture.

Sony XBR-65X930D

 

Sony's X930D 4K television line brings native HDR video support to a reasonable price range, and really shows off just how good the new video format can look.

HDR content is visually impressive. Excellent color reproduction. Very bright panel. Good connected features.

Middling black levels. Remote and Android TV operating system are a bit clunky.

Conclusions With the XBR-65X930D, Sony melds a genuinely impressive HDR-capable panel with some odd design choices. The picture is hard to beat outside of a much more expensive OLED television like the LG OLED65G6P, which can't get nearly as bright. If...

Sony X930D / X940D 4K HDR Ultra HD TV Review (XBR55X930D, XBR65X930D, XBR75X940D)

 

The X930D/40D is an impressive combination of technologies, delivered in a particularly attractive design. Giving you everything you would hope for from a 4K home entertainment-worthy system. Furthermore, this latest and most powerful of the Sony 2016...

Great black performance ; Local dimming produces exceptional contrast ; Brilliant 4K upscaling ; Superb quality of HDR technology ; Excellent color performance ; Android TV is great ; Sleek and thin design

Lackluster sound ; Some local dimming blooming in X930D ; Poor grey uniformity in X930D ; Enough with the Motionflow “960Hz”

In our view, the bottom line for the X930D 55 inch and 65 inch 4K TVs and particularly for their giant 75 inch full-array X940D variant is that these are superb 4K HDR TV models. While the Samsung SUHD TVs of 2015 outperformed their Sony Bravia...

Expert review by : Thomas J. Norton (soundandvision.com)

Sony XBR-65X930D LCD Ultra HDTV Review

 

Full-array local dimming remains the gold standard for LCD Ultra HDTVs, but Sony has now upped the ante with the best edge-lit set we've seen.

Impressive edge-lit local dimming; Respectable off-axis viewing; Bright, punchy HDR

Often redundant menus; Tight remote control layout

Best Ultra 4K TV

 

I made the switch from Samsung to Sony after 7 years. Even tho this TV is a 2015 model it still one of the best TV's out there. With great sound due to the front speakers and amazing picture quality.

Awesome 4K TV

 

I looked at a few TVs. But, decided I wanted a Sony. So it was down to this one and the XBR65X900C. I saw a lot of bad reviews on the 900c. Mostly on how it had really bad light bleed. I pretty much made up my mind when I didn't see any bad reviews on...

This is my second purchase of a Sony 4K, HD TV.

 

I purchased a "55" inch tv in November 2015 and was very pleased with the set, until I purchased a "65" set this time.
