Sony KD-55AF8

 

Sony KD-55AF8 review: 2017's excellent Sony A1 remade. Not the latest tech but still excellent, especially if you're a sticker for motion handling.

Beautifully pure, refined pictures ; Good sound up to a point ; Class-leading motion and noise management

Android TV continues to frustrate ; HDR pictures lack brightness

Exquisite pictures, but the lack of brightness limits HDR impact – especially in bright-room environments.

Sony AF8 TV review: ignore the haters, the KD65AF8 is the best 4K HDR OLED TV of 2018 so far

 

No it's not a huge leap forward from Sony's A1 from last year. Yes it's the best TV you can buy

Genuinely jaw-dropping 4K HDR OLED picture quality ; Remarkable in-screen audio system ; Excellent build and fine finishing

Okay, it isn't a huge leap on from last year's A1 ; …But then it is hard to improve on The Best

Detailed picture ; Impressive sound ; Deep OLED blacks ; Smooth handling of motion

Lacks punch compared to the A1 ; User interface could be better ; No Dolby Vision

A good television, but the Sony AF8 doesn’t shine quite as bright as its superstar sibling

Sony KD-65AF8 OLED 4K HDR TV review

 

In 2017, Sony reimagined the humble telly with its A1 OLED debut. The adoption of OLED display tech enabled its engineers to completely rethink TV audio; by adding vibrating actuators to the back of the set, the panel itself could generate sound. The...

Sony AF8 TV review: Perfect processing lacks the brightness of its OLED competitors

 

This 2018 OLED TV delivers superb picture processing. However, its HDR brightness is a little behind the competition, leaving LG and Panasonic ahead.

Beautifully refined OLED picture quality ; Owerful sound from a space-saving design ; Fair price point too

Pictures lack brightness with HDR ; Android TV smart system isn’t very friendly ; Minor update over 2017 model

The Sony AF8 delivers beautiful picture quality thanks to superb picture processing. Its one problem is simple: it's not as bright as the 2018 competition, which gives LG and Panasonic a foot-up in the brightness stakes.

Sony KD-55AF8 (A8F OLED) review: Another OLED stunner from Sony

 

Razor-sharp design and class-leading processing – only a slight lack of brightness for HDR material holds the AF8 back

Excellent video processing and motion handling ; True blacks, vibrant colours and wide viewing angles ; Acoustic Surface sound technology delivers impressive audio

HDR less impactful than rival OLEDs ; Relatively high input lag for 1080p gaming ; Mild vertical banding in very dark scenes

There’s much to like about Sony’s new OLED TV. The modest brightness levels for HDR and middling gaming responsiveness may put off some people, but the KD-55AF8’s superb processing means that its motion handling and video processing are second to none....

Sony KD-55AF8 Review

 

The Sony KD-55AF8/ A8F OLED TV is the latest high-end television from the company, but is it any good?
