Sony KD-55XE9005

 

It may look like just another cookie-cutter UHD TV, all ultra-slim bezel and tricked out HDMI inputs, but Sony's XE90 line offers buyers something a little special: direct LED backlighting with local dimming.

Ultra-crisp imagery with uniform black-level performance and watchable HDR, make this an unquestionably superior Sony TV offering.

Sony KDL-65XE90

 

The more high dynamic range (HDR) TVs I see, the more I value direct LED lighting. It seems to me that TVs illuminated by lights sitting directly behind the screen consistently handle the more extreme light range associated with HDR better than TVs...

Sony XE90 4K TV review: Backlight bonanza

 

Put the 65XE9005 fairly into the context of its surprisingly affordable price and it becomes a really exciting option for serious movie fans unable to

This Sony mid-ranger offers good all-round picture quality for its money courtesy of a crowd-pleasing direct lighting system.

There’s some gentle backlight blooming with HDR sources ; Its viewing angle is very limited ; And it’s not especially bright

The 65XE9005 isn't quite bright enough to be considered a classic HDR TV, and while its direct LED lighting is welcome overall, it's implementation is pretty basic when it comes to the amount of local light control it offers.

Sony Bravia XBR-55X900E review

 

This is the HDR flatscreen we've all been waiting for

Direct LED with local dimming ; Excellent motion handling ; Unfussy but elegant design ; Surprisingly good audio

HDR is a bit dim ; Rubbery remote ; Power brick is inconvenient ; No 3D support

It may not offer the same peak brightness as Sony’s flagship UHD sets, the X930E and X940E, but this 4K direct LED backlit screen is still a brilliant buy.

Sony Bravia 65XE90 (KD-65XE9005) review

 

Direct lighting and local dimming at a price you might actually be able to afford

Strong HDR Pictures ; Good value ; Gorgeous SDR pictures ; Attractive design

It could be brighter ; Very limited viewing angle ; Android TV can irritate ; No Dolby Vision support

Despite not boasting Sony’s top-tier video processing system, the 65XE9005’s successful combination of an unusual direct lighting system with Triluminos colour technology and an eye-catchingly affordable price makes it something of a mid-range hero. By...

Sony BRAVIA KD-65XE9005 HDR 4K TV Review

 

Sony's new XE90 4K HDR TV offers the promise of a direct LED backlight and local dimming on a mid-range model but is there a catch?

Direct LED backlight ; Accurate greyscale and colour gamut ; Great performance with SDR and HDR ; Good motion handling ; Low input lag ; Decent set of features ; Attractive design and good build quality

Local dimming limited ; Colour gamut could be wider ; Narrow optimal viewing angles

The KD-65XE9005 is the first new Sony Ultra HD 4K TV that we've reviewed in 2017 and it's an excellent way to start the year. The design is attractive and the build quality is impressive, whilst there are all the connections you'll need including four...

Sony XBR-X900E series review

 

The Sony XBR-X900E is Sony's least-expensive to deliver truly excellent image quality, thanks in large part to full-array local dimming . That feature allows different areas of the screen to dim independently, and in my experience it's the number one...

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 X900E TV

 

The Sony X900E is a great 4k TV that offers some of the best picture quality found in an LED TV. HDR content looks particularly good on this TV since it gets very bright, and it handles motion exceptionally well. Its only real downside is the...

Deep blacks ; Bright, which is good for HDR ; Very fluid motion

Picture quality deteriorates at an angle
