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 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.

Excellent TV

 

I've had this a couple of weeks and the picture quality is superb. It was very easy to set up and I was watching the tv within 20 minutes of opening the box. Good service from RS as usual would have no hesitation in recommending this tv

Sony 55xe9005

 

Purchased 2 weeks ago, thus far it has performed great. The picture is first class and the remote is easy to use. I have had zero problems with the os plus the six year guarantee is a bonus.

Excellent picture quality. However, the Android TV system is a bit sluggish thus the 4 stars.

SONY SMART TV XE90 SERIES - BEAUTIFUL TECH

 

This SONY TV is beautifully made, perhaps, the most gorgeous-looking designer panel on the market today. The external power supply is a very clever way to isolate power supply noise. Build quality is like nothing else available. This TV comes packed...
