Techradar Best in Class 2017

Expert review by: Steve May (techradar.com)

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.

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.

Terrific TV

 

I bought this TV to replace a 3 year old Panasonic TX-L50E6B (which was also a great TV). This was to upgrade to 4K & a bigger screen after getting Sky Q installed. I cannot praise the picture quality high enough. I honestly didn't think i would see a...

Excellent product

 

I was shocked when we started looking at televisions of this price range, I thought it's only a tv! I've since understood and I'm really pleased we did make the purchase. Picture quality is amazing but apart from that it's all the things it can do with...
