Best 4K TV OverallKey features
- 65-inch LCD TV with edge LED lighting
- Active 3D playback (2 pairs of glasses included)
- Sony Entertainment Smart TV platform
Kicking off Sony’s second generation of 4K, the Sony KDL-65X9005B
replaces last year's sensational 65X9005A
set as the new 4K TV to beat.
Ignoring the usual obsession with super-skinny frames, this mammoth 65-inch set provides more space for the brilliant speakers included with last year's model. Those front-firing speakers match the screen quality for performance producing exceptional clarity and a wide soundstage, meaning an additional soundbar is not necessary.
Among the display technologies on board, Sony includes its X-Tended Dynamic Range system to generate a more contrast rich image, 4K X-Reality Pro processing system, and a tweaked version of the Triluminous colour technology with extra colour resolution coming from an improved panel design
The results are unsurprisingly spectacular particularly the outstanding black level response, with sharpness and detailing for 4K definitely better second time round. Add in a built-in camera for Skype, access to Sony's improving smart TV platform and a 33ms input lag to make it a great TV for gaming and this sets the new benchmark for 4K TVs. If you have the money to own it, you will not be disappointed.Price
