Sony KD-65XF9005 review


Flagship features and mid-range price make for a stunning Sony TV.

Fantastic detail in the brightest and darkest picture elements ; Brilliantly bright and punchy ; Stunning but natural colours ; Loads of apps ; Clear sound

Minor backlight blooming ; Bass-light audio ; Can be beaten for viewing angles ; Android OS is still frustratingly sluggish

It’s early days for 2018 TVs, but the Sony KD-65XF9005’s combination of flagship features and mid-range price make it something of a stunner

Flagship features make this something of a mid-range marvel...

Really bright and punchy ; Great detail, particularly in the brightest and darkest areas ; Vibrant but natural colours ; Apps, apps and more apps ; Clear sound

Bass-light audio ; Android TV is still pretty horrible to use

At this price, the XF9005 is an absolutely stunning TV with flagship touches

Brilliant picture quality


Bought this on black Friday and couldn't be happier with my purchase. Picture is excellent, sounds is okay, what you expect from built in speakers, mainly use it with my surround sound system.

Great tv


Had this a couple of weeks now and it has not disappointed. It took a bit of time to get the sound and picture settings right for me, which was made more difficult because Sony doesn't include full operating instructions that explain the many functions...
