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.

Sony Bravia KD-55XE9005

 

Sony Bravia KD-55XE9005 er en skikkelig lyskanon av en TV, som lar oss nyte både HDR-film og annet TV-innhold med suveren kontrast.

Sony XE90 – KD-55XE9005 Test

 

2017 er på vej på markedet her marts 2017, og årets første vi har fået til anmeldelse er Sony's XE90 model.

Stærk i forhold til bevægelse ; God ensartet billedegengivelse på hele skærmen

Ikke så mange local dimming zoner ; Cast funktion låst til 60 Hz

Såfremt XE90 modelserien får et hak med prisøksen i løbet af 2017, så kan den bestemt blive et interessant bud på et godt 2017 LED TV køb med meget billedekvalitet for pengene. Men her medio marts, hvor vi tester, så er prisen efter vores mening høj,...

Ljud & Bild Bäst i test

Expert review by: Audun Hage (ljudochbild.se)

Helvassa prestanda

 

Sony 55XE9005 är en riktig TV-ljuskanon som låter oss njuta av både HDR-filmer och annat TV-material med suverän kontrast.

Sony-skärmens dynamiska LED-bakgrundsbelysning ger väsentligt mycket bättre kontrast och svärta än konkurrenterna.

Ljudet är tunt och saknar bas. Här är det nödvändigt med separat ljud!

Sony KD-55XE9005 (Test)

 

Je günstiger der Fernseher, desto uninteressanter ist er. Diesen Eindruck erweckte zumindest Sonys Roadshow, auf welcher die Modelle unterhalb der XE93-Reihe eher ein Schattendasein fristeten. Dabei hat der neue KD-55XE9005 seinem 700 Euro teureren...

Einmal mehr holt sich Sony den Testsieg, wobei der Punktvorsprung denkbar knapp ausfällt. Der neue KD-55XE9005 besticht vor allem durch den satten Kontrast, wobei die Spitzenhelligkeit von rund 750 Candela ebenfalls beachtlich ist. Die Ausleuchtung...
