Sony KD-65X9000C Review

Sony has broken the bounds of expectation with the new X9000 65 inch 4K ultra HD TV which boosts a thickness of just 0.2 inches. It is an amazing new piece of technology that has the option of hanging on the wall for a fantastic floating effect. The unreal thickness of this screen combined with the fine 4K TV features makes the X9000 no cheap model; but to those who can afford it, the cost is worth the every penny.

 

The design is simply breathtaking and it doesn’t matter whether the TV is placed on a TV table or hanged on a wall to look the precious piece of art it is. The super thin frame is the highlight feature and when it combines with the clear 4K resolution, the result is a futuristic like design with the promise of completely changing the way you perceive TV.

 

The color rendering capacity offered on this device is extra ordinary, offering more colors with the TRILUMINOUS Display, otherwise known as the quantum dot nano crystal technology. Combine this with the X-Tended dynamic contrast enhancement and you get a truly superb picture quality that gives other competitors something to think about. As if that is not sufficient, the TV has the Sony made X-Reality Pro upscalling engine and its accompanying video processing system. What is the work of an upscalling engine you ask? It ensures that even if native 4K UHD content is not always available, the available HD 1080p content can be made to truly resemble the 4K content.

 

This is an Android TV, with Sony having decided to let go of its own Smart T OS and delegate this task to Google. This was an inspired move from Sony, as this small tweak has massive advantages. The user gets to experience a world of movies, music, TV series as well as an endless supply of apps, all thanks to the Google Play Store. Android TV also has the advantage of linking with host of Android devices for transfer of information and syncing.

 

Sony’s new 4K processor X 1 chip is one of the most talked about feature. This single chip is responsible for automatic enhancement of color and contrast resulting in unrivaled clarity.

 

This product has a few deficiencies as well.  For starters, it lacks a specific HDR content enabling firmware update which is present in most recent Sony TVs. The X-Tended Dynamic Range does little to cover for this deficiency. The lack of local dimming technology available in this device’s predecessor may seem like a small issue but it is an unnecessary omission which would have cost Sony little to install. The X9000 does also have the issue of color and contrast loss when placed at off-center angles. Although it is not as chronic in this TV as in other UHD TVs, it makes it somehow inferior to some TVs like the LG OLED TV.

  • The Good :
    Extra slim design, Android TV, Triluminous display, the 4K processor X 1 chip provides greater clarity, upscalling engine
  • The Bad :
    Lack of the specific HDR content enabling firmware update, lacks dimming technology, color and contrast loss at off-center angles
Our score:
4.5 / 5
