Sony ZF9 (KD-65ZF9) hands on review: price, release date and a first look at this monster of an LED LCD 4K HDR TV


Sony's latest big screen LED is evolution, not revolution – this premium full array LED LCD bows out of the nit-race but still wants to woo cinephiles

High precision direct LED backlight is the business ; X1 Ultimate image processor works wonders ; Android Oreo TV OS looks much improved

Limited black level performance ; Not the brightest HDR performer in its class

Sony Master Series XBR-65Z9F


Sony's Master Series Z9F LCD TV has a remarkably bright picture and the convenience of hands-free Google Assistant voice control, for a premium price.

Bottom Line: Sony's Master Series Z9F LCD TV has a remarkably bright picture and the convenience of hands-free Google Assistant voice control, for a premium price.

Sony Z9F TV

Extraordinarily bright in SDR and HDR ; Excellent low input lag ; Great local dimming feature

Disappointing contrast ratio

Sony XBR-65Z9F LCD Ultra HDTV Review

Impressive HDR brightness; Excellent black level and shadow detail; Superior off-center viewing angle for LCD
