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 KD-55XE9005

Sony KD-55XE9005


Sommaire Le téléviseur Full Led Ultra HD KD-55XE9005 de Sony est un modèle milieu de gamme qui combine une superbe qualité d'image et un design réussi. Une bonne alternative aux modèles de chez TCL.

Les plus ; Excellente qualité d’image, niveaux de noir profonds, couleurs fidèles, performances HDR, style minimaliste et moderne, la présence de l’OS Android TV apporte l’Assistant Google et plus d’applications que les plateformes concurrentes

Les moins ; Plus cher qu’une TV équivalente chez TCL offrant la même qualité d’image, les contrôles vocaux et fonctions smart TV sont parfois longs à la détente

Ce n’est d’ailleurs pas un hasard si les modèles série P équivalents de chez TCL ont également nos faveurs puisqu’ils ont eux aussi recours au local dimming tout en étant moins chers que le Sony. En comparaison côte à côte, ce dernier est légèrement...

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,...

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...

Great TV let down by poor OS


I'm not sure what Sony was thinking when they tried AndroidTV and decided it was good enough to integrate it in their new sets. Coming from an older Samsung set (2011), with its responsive and intuitive design, it was quite a shock to see that a 2017...
