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.

Great tv.

 

Spent months trying to find the right tv. And eventually settled on this one. So glad I did, 4K picture is great, PS4 pro looks great and upscaling great too. Very happy.

I was unsure about choosing an Oled tv or this Sony. I needn't have worried as the backlighting on the xe90 is excellent with plenty of brightness considering it faces a window. The colours are terrific with good black and the sound a great improvement...

Top screen from Sony as expected

 

I took ages to make the move to 4K, having a 50” Sony already which top in its day for a full HD I wanted to make sure I didn't downgrade. Read a million reviews, every screen seemed to have something negative going for it except this one. I read some...

Another great tv by Sony!

 

Had this over a month now and it hasn't disappointed, great image and the HDR/4K from Netflix look amazing. Handles sport with ease too just need a soundbar to really make the audio in movies as good as the picture!

excellent picture

 

I've had this TV for 3 weeks and it is brilliant. I got used to the slightly slow response to the remote within days. This is the first TV I've seen that is better than my 12-year old Pioneer plasma, so I bought one. No regrets.
