Sony XBR-A1E Series (XBR65A1E) review

 

Pay the Sony premium, and you'll be rewarded with one of the most remarkable TVs ever made.

Gorgeous design ; Perfect picture quality ; Stunning HDR performance ; Impressive sound system ; Google Assistant, Alexa Voice control

Expensive ; Android TV can be a drag

Seriously, folks, the Sony A1E OLED is just out-of-this-world fantastic. The question isn’t whether you will love having the Sony A1E OLED TV in your home. The question is whether can you stomach paying for the little extras it offers over competing LG...

Sony XBR-65A1E

 

Sony's A1E series of OLED TVs shows off the technology's capability for perfect blacks and wide colors, with the power and features of Android TV under the hood.

Perfect black levels. Wide color range. Striking design. Android TV platform is loaded with features, including Google Cast.

Extremely expensive. Colors aren't ideal out of the box.

The Sony A1E shows that fantastic picture quality provided by OLED technology isn't solely LG's thing. It's a striking, feature-filled TV with fantastic contrast and a very wide color reach. LG's OLEDC7P series has more accurate color out of the box,...

Sony's unique OLED TV is held back by its higher price

 

Sony's OLED TV costs a lot more than its LG rivals, but does its picture quality justify the price? We compare the two best TVs ever side-by-side.

With the exception of other 2017 OLED TVs, the Sony XBR-A1E outperforms every other TV we've tested. It delivers perfect black levels, wide viewing angles, accurate color and a great bright-room picture. Its unique stand-less design is almost all...

It has the same image quality as less expensive LG OLED TVs.

With an amazing picture that matches but doesn't exceed LG's 2017 OLED TVs, the Sony XBR-A1E isn't worth the premium for most high-end shoppers.

Sony A1E 4K TV review: This could be the best OLED TV money can buy

 

Take an OLED panel and combine it with Sony's picture processing wizardry and you get what is the best image we've seen on an OLED TV. But how HDR will affect OLED lifespan we don't yet know.

Absolutely stunning picture ; Good detail reproduction for an OLED ; Great sound using the display as a planar speaker

Remote fails to match the elegance of the TV ; Media apps are sluggish and buggy ; Possible lifespan issues with HDR and OLED

The A1E’s picture is so rich and lush, our possibly errant and tenuous supposition of a shorter OLED lifespan won’t matter to many folks. If you have $5500 to fork over for a TV today, you can probably afford to replace it before it wears out. Maybe by...

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

Sony XBR-65A1E OLED Ultra HDTV Review

 

While it might appear that OLED UHDTVs are popping up everywhere, the most visible supplier to date has been LG. But Sony, by acquiring OLED panels from LG and adding its own electronics, processing, styling, and unique features, has jumped into the...

Excellent contrast; Superb color and resolution; Looks good from every angle; Unique panel-based sound system

No color management system; Some white clipping

Sony Bravia OLED XBR-65A1E Review: Brilliant from Any Angle

 

Initially, I was distracted by the angle of the Sony A1E sitting on a tabletop in our testing room. However, a few hours of viewing its impressive picture made me forget all about the unusual setup. Sony has definitely put its own twist on the OLED...

Excellent OLED picture ; Impressive built-in sound ; Well-rounded smart-TV features ; Great viewing angles

Odd leaning tabletop stand ; Abysmal remote control

Splurge on the Sony XBR-65A1E if you want a truly superior OLED TV with impressive sound and robust Android TV features. You can get the LG E7 for about $1,000 less, but Sony's set provides slightly better color and more brightness.
