X800E/X850E Series


Boasting similarfeatures & performance, the X800E & X850E series are differentiated primarily by screen form size — 43-, 49-, & 55-inch models make up the X800E series. The65- & 75-inch variants get the X850E badge, but they also get a new chip offering HDR Pro Remastering for an HDR-like experience with non-HDR content, and Super Bit Mapping for smoother màu sắc gradations as well. As the entry màn chơi to Sony’s LED/LCD TV line, one might think Sony skimped on the X800E series’ processing và picture quality, but this segment is loaded with top-tier tech that’s been trickled down from higher-end models, including Sony’s excellent 4K X-reality Pro processing chip, and its Triluminous Display công nghệ for expanded màu sắc gamut và increased color accuracy.


In addition to Google’s android TV operating system, Sony has also built in Google’s trang chủ assistant, allowing for voice-based interaction and commands.

Suggested retail pricingis as follows:

XBR-75X850E, 75-inch class — $5,000XBR-65X850E, 65-inch class — $2,500XBR-55X800E, 55-inch class — $1,900XBR-49X800E, 49-inch class — $1,100XBR-43X800E, 43-inch class — $1,000

X900E Series


The X900E is an all new segment within Sony’s TV lineup. In addition khổng lồ the aforementioned 4K X-Reality Pro chip, X1 HDR Pro Remastering và Super Bit Mapping, và Triluminous Display features, the X900E adds X-tended Dynamic Range Pro 5x, which we witnessed increasing contrast substantially over prior-year models. Interestingly, a full-array local dimming (FALD) backlight system, typically a high-end feature, is limitedtothis series (with the exception of the 75-inch X940E & Z9D). One might think that FALD would offer the best brightness, contrast, & black cấp độ control, but Sony says its more advanced, edge-lit X930E/X940E models actually surpass the performance of this series. Pricing is as follows:

XBR-75X900E, 75-inch class — $6,000XBR-65X900E, 65-inch class — $3,300XBR-55X900E, 55-inch class — $2,400XBR-49X900E, 49-inch class — $1,700

X930E/X940E series


This series is at the highest rungof Sony’s lineup before getting to lớn the over-the-top flagship Z9D series introduced late last year. In addition to lớn all the aforementioned features, the X930E series employs an improved version of its edge-lighting system called Slim Backlight Drive +, which Sony claims offers 10 times the contrast of a conventional LED/LCD TV. We saw a side-by-side demonstration between the new X930E and last year’s X930D, & the contrast improvements were indeed substantial. This series has better đen levels, better shadow detail, và much higher brightness, making it especially well suited for extreme HDR performance. This could be the finest edge-lit television we see in 2017.

The X940E,which is available only in a 75-inch version, offers a souped-up full-array backlight system for performance that treads dangerously into the Z9D’s territory. An HDR gaming demonstration using the Play
Station 4 Pro wasespecially impressive, and we expect the TV will perform equally well for TV và movie playback. Khổng lồ get such performance, however, one will have lớn pay handsomely for it. Pricing is as follows:

XBR-75X940E, 75-inch class — $7,500XBR-65X930E, 65-inch class — $4,000XBR-55X930E, 55-inch class — $3,300

Based on our brief demonstrations, these appear khổng lồ be the finest TVs Sony has made to lớn date, with excellent HDR performance (including Dolby Vision, HDR 10, và HLG) and, again, some of the finest picture processing available. We look forward to lớn reviewing all series models in depth later this year. Và when we do, we look forward khổng lồ using Sony’s new Ultra HD Blu-ray player as a source. Beloware those details.

Sony UBP-X800 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray player


Coming in at $300, the UBP-X800 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray player is now available for pre-sale at Best Buy and Amazon. While priced a little higher than entry-level players from Samsung, Philips, & LG, this premium player comes in at a lower price point than competing models from Panasonic & Oppo, while offering premium audio performance with Hi-Res audio tư vấn up lớn 192k
Hz/24-bit & DSD 11.2MHz (future firmware update required). Also included is built-in HDR enhancement processing for non-HDR discs, and playback abilities for just about every disc-based format, making it a universal disc player. The player will also tư vấn both Dolby Atmos & DTS:X surround sound formats.

HD will soon announce more details about the system powering these new tools.
Sony’s 2017 TV line-up may at first glance look like a continuation of the năm nhâm thìn line-up but look closer & you will find important updates in most of the TV. The most significant change is that Sony will introduce its first large-size OLED TV, dubbed the A1. The Z9D LCD from 2016 will carry over into 2017 while the rest of the line-up consists of updated 80, 85, 90, 93 và 94 series. The major themes are the same as last year. Picture chất lượng improvements revolve around 4K resolution và HDR (High Dynamic Range) that widens the dynamic range and expands the color gamut. The TVs are based on Google’s android TV operating system, & the designs are classic Sony with the A1 OLED as the star. A1 looks stunning both on & off.

There are some other interesting points lớn make here. 3d is as good as gone. Last year’s Z9D will still offer active 3 chiều but that is only because it is based on a 2016 LCD panel where 3 chiều was still a “thing". The rest of the line-up will exclude 3D. Also, there are no curved TVs in Sony’s TV line-up this year.Let us start with the most important subject; picture quality. Z9D & A1 will both represent Sony’s flagship TVs for 2017 with Z9D having classic LCD advantages such as high brightness and A1 having OLED advantages such as true black và pixel-level luminance/color control. From here we move down into the X94E & X93E ranges that, like last year, are full array local dimming & edge LED models, respectively. Interestingly, Sony has chosen khổng lồ include a new X90E series that also feature full array local dimming for improved picture quality and better HDR reproduction. X85E will in 2017 switch to a VA LCD panel, which is great news considering how poorly the IPS LCD based X85D performed last year.

We have already seen the new A1 OLED on several occasions và it looks stunning. The OLED TV takes advantage of a chất lượng speaker concept where two actuators send vibrations through the OLED panel khổng lồ reproduce sound. This is possible because the OLED panel is made from only one layer. Additionally, it has a subwoofer built into the stand. This helps create the incredibly clean look of A1.From the front Sony’s OLED TV looks lượt thích a piece of glass and that, in essence, is exactly what it is. OLED pixels can be deposited on a range of materials, including glass, plastic and metal, which makes it a very versatile display công nghệ from a thiết kế point of view. The Sony A1 OLED will be available in 55, 65, & 77 inch sizes.
Sony still refuses to lớn back the “UHD Premium" logo, likely because it is a Samsung-driven initiative. In general, Sony declines to communicate specifications, instead preferring lớn use terms lượt thích “Triluminos" and “X-tended Dynamic Range Pro". The former relates khổng lồ the expanded color space that the HDR standards cover and the latter is Sony’s way of saying that a given TV has the required dynamic range to reproduce, well, HDR properly. Sony urges us to try khổng lồ not get too caught up in specifications but it still feels strange to lớn insist on using meaningless words lớn describe known things. Numbers are, after all, more meaningful.Sony will tư vấn Dolby Vision on the X93E, X94E, A1, & Z9D series
So what has actually changed in the picture unique department compared to lớn 2016? Well, we need đánh giá samples lớn confirm but Sony tells us that both the 93 & 94 series have higher peak brightness (for HDR) and a somewhat larger màu sắc volume. The A1 OLED will, of course, deliver the picture unique that only OLED can, và in 2017 this means close khổng lồ 1000 nits peak brightness, close to lớn 100% DCI-P3 màu sắc gamut, & of course pixel-level accuracy. Another significant technical update in 2017 is that Sony will tư vấn the Dolby Vision HDR format on X93E, X94E, A1, và Z9D. Dolby Vision will improve HDR picture chất lượng in a number of ways but you obviously need content in Dolby Vision format.That is why it is mindboggling that Sony has excluded Dolby Vision from its first consumer-grade UHD Blu-ray player, the X800. The model name implies that a Sony X900 player will arrive later in 2017 but that is just speculation on our part. X800 will deliver the Ultra HD Blu-ray experience, meaning 4K resolution and HDR, by using the HDR10 format. If you want Dolby Vision nội dung you will have lớn stream content via Netflix or Amazon instead – or just buy a Dolby Vision-capable UHD Blu-ray player from another brand.


Sony will also include the third HDR format, HLG, in all of its 2017 TVs, và even push out a firmware update for late-2015 and năm 2016 models. HLG is a HDR format developed by UK’s đài truyền hình bbc and Japan’s NHK for broadcast TV. It is unlikely to lớn be adopted by major streaming players such as Netflix and Amazon but if you want HDR via broadcast channels ?
HLG’ is the initialism to lớn remember.Speaking of Netflix & Amazon brings us to android TV. Sony started using Google’s TV operating system in năm ngoái and has since then iterated on it. The 2017 TVs will run app android version 6.0 at launch but later receive a software update lớn version 7.0 (Nougat). This will bring new features to lớn the TVs and hopefully make the platform more stable. It is no secret that Sony has had its share of issues with game android in the past but the company hopes that its persistence will, in the end, pay off.The game android TV platform offers access khổng lồ apps such as Netflix, Amazon, You
Tube, HBO, Hulu, và many others. You can rent movies from the Google Play Movies store and download games from the Google Play store. There are truyền thông media streamer apps such as Kodi, Plex, & VLC, và tons of other things lớn explore. You control everything with Sony’s TV remote that has a built-in microphone for voice search. Unfortunately, Sony has not made any significant updates lớn the very cheaply-made remote control.Having the app android TV platform also means that Chromecast is integrated. From your phone or tablet you can wirelessly push over videos to lớn the TV. The TV will take over the connection lớn the streaming server so you can use your phone for other tasks. Think of it just like a Chromecast – just built-in.If you live in Europe and still prefer the old-fashioned channel viewing experience you can also enjoy Sony’s twin-tuner capabilities from the XE85 series & up. This allows you lớn record one channel while watching another. You can also schedule recordings và do other neat things. All it takes is that you connect an external USB hard drive.

Android TV will be available in all of the 4K models but none of the Full HD models, meaning all models from X80E & up.The HD line-up has been greatly reduced và includes only three ranges. Sony says that all three will be compatible with HDR nội dung and the W75E range will even include the Triluminos system that expands the màu sắc gamut. However, these are low-end TVs so do not expect HDR lớn excel. Sony has created these “world’s first" HD HDR TVs as an affordable way lớn explore HDR via Play
Station 4. In addition khổng lồ games, Netflix and You
Tube’s HDR will also be available. Our advice? If you want khổng lồ experience true HDR, be willing khổng lồ spend more.What else? There is the usual suite of “smaller" features. The faster “ac" type Wi
Fi is built into most TVs. All models from the 6 series and up also feature Miracast if you for some reason prefer this over built-in Chromecast. All 4K models come with 4 HDMI ports and 3 USB ports whereas the HD models have only 2 HDMI ports. All models can be wall-mounted with standard VESA brackets, says Sony. Europeans that receive channels over satellite should know that XE85 and above have built-in DVB-S2 tuners.Sony’s 2017 TVs will start shipping in March. The A1 OLED will be added lớn the line-up this summer. We will update the overview as we receive & confirm more specific details. You can tell 2017 TVs apart from previous years’ models by the letter “E" in the model name; for example X93E (in the US) and XE93 (in Europe). Xe cộ = 2017, XD = 2016, XC = 2015, XB = 2014, XA = 2013.
