Sony ZD9 KD-65ZD9 review: a TV that goes big, goes bright and offers true luxury

 

The ZD9 is Sony’s star HDR performer – no other model offers the same level of 4K dazzle

Sensational picture performance ; Premium build quality ; Wide HDR support

Tacky remote control ; Only two HDMIs support 4K 60Hz

Sony KD-65ZD9BU review

 

Sony has produced a dazzling flagship 4K TV, but not quite the perfection we expect for £4000

Stunning 4K picture ; Clean, crisp detail ; Good colour balance ; Gorgeous design ; Easy to use ; Excellent features ; 3D

Rivals offer better black depth and finer subtle detail ; Motion isn’t stable ; Thin sound

It’s not perfect, but this gorgeous premium Sony TV dazzles with 4K pictures

Sony Bravia KD-65ZD9 review: The brightest and best HDR yet

 

Sony's 65-inch giant serves up class-leading HDR performance – but little niggles leave it a whisker away from perfection

Class-leading HDR performance ; Exemplary video processing ; Dolby Vision support coming soon

Flickery 3D ; Android TV feels clunky ; Limited viewing angles

In summary, the Bravia KD-65ZD9 is a sensational HDR TV. And if you’re waiting for Sony’s recently announced A1 OLED TVs, then you might want to reconsider: going by what Sony told us at CES, the LCD-screened ZD9 still has the performance edge for HDR...

AVTech Awards 2016/2017

 

The Z series stands proud at the very top of Sony's TV line, and deserves its flagship status thanks to a masterful performance with HDR sources. This direct-backlit 4K set has the brightness level and light-handling skills to dig out the subtleties of...

Sony BRAVIA ZD9 (KD-65ZD9) UHD 4K TV Review

 

Sony's new ZD9 Ultra HD TV includes their new Backlight Master Drive and X1 Extreme Processor for superior HDR and an improved 4K performance.

Impressive local dimming ; Accurate greyscale and colour gamut ; Excellent performance with SDR and HDR ; Good motion handling ; Great set of features ; Surprisingly energy efficient ; Attractive design and good build quality

Limited viewing angles ; Some crosstalk with 3D ; Input lag could be lower ; Expensive compared to competition

The Sony ZD9 is certainly a contender for one of the best TVs of the year, with more local dimming zones and a higher peak brightness than any other model. It has a minimalist but elegant design, with some nice stylish touches and a clever series of...

Sony ZD9 uhd-topmodel: erg mooi, maar ook erg duur

 

Sony's topmodel, de ZD9, is een zeer fraaie televisie, die indruk weet te maken met een prachtig uiterlijk, een schitterend beeld en een overtuigende hdr-weergave. Het mooie beeld wordt mogelijk gemaakt door een 'full array local dimming backlight' met...

Prachtig uiterlijk ; Goed contrast ; Overtuigende hdr-weergave ; Nauwkeurige kleurweergave ; Prettige afstandsbediening

Hoge prijs ; Slome soc ; Matige basweergave ; Middelmatige inputlag

Test: Sony KD-65ZD9

 

De ZD9 is Sony's nieuwe vlaggenschip. De Backlight Master Drive, een gloednieuwe achtergrondverlichting die Sony al aankondigde op CES, moet op dit toestel voor ongezien contrast en indrukwekkende lichtopbrengst zorgen.

HDR10 ; Backlight Master Drive (35x19 segmenten!) ; Zwartwaarde en contrast ; Zeer hoge piekhelderheid ; Beeldverwerking ; Bewegingsscherpte ; Kleurweergave ; Kleurbereik

Geluid, zwakke basweergave ; Android tv iets te sloom ; Kijkhoek ; Afstandsbediening ; Prijs

Sony Bravia KD-65ZD9

 

Aldri før har vi sett så gode fabrikkinnstillinger.

Nytt baklys gir magisk sortnivå og kontrast ; Meget gode farger ; God på bevegelse ; Har det design som skiller seg fra mengden ; God fjernkontroll ; Krever ikke justeringer for å få et godt bilde ; God lyd

Noe svak innsynsvinkel ; Høy inputlag for de mest aktive spillerne ; Android har fortsatt en vei å gå før det tukter for eksempel Tizen på brukervennlighet

Sony ZD9 viser seg som en toppmodell verdig »
