Sony Bravia A1 OLED (KD-65A1) review

 

Sony's brand-new TV for 2017 is returning to OLED

Gorgeous picture quality ; Startling, monolithic design ; Fantastic sound ; Unmatched viewing angles

It’s not very bright ; Stand makes it sit on a slight angle

From its startling frameless design and stellar build quality to its jaw-dropping pictures and ground-breaking, room-filling sound, Sony’s first stab at doing a big-screen OLED TV is the definition of AV class. The A1 OLED series is a crowd pleaser in...

Superb blacks and contrast ratio ; Fantastic dynamic range ; Impressive colour accuracy ; Excellent video processing ; Wide viewing angles ; Acoustic Surface is inspired ; Beautiful design

Minor banding just above black ; material ; Screen is at an angle ; Expensive

The Sony A1 is a genuinely striking piece of industrial design that combines minimalist art and cutting-edge technology to great effect, delivering an OLED TV that is gorgeous to look at when it's both off and on. The use of an Acoustic Surface to...

Sony A1 oled: de eerste tv met geluid uit het scherm

 

De A1 is Sony's eerste grote oledtelevisie. Ook is het de eerste televisie waarbij het beeldpaneel naast beeld ook geluid produceert. De unieke constructie maakt een strak design mogelijk, waarbij aan de voorkant van de tv bijna alleen beeld zichtbaar...

Hoog contrast ; Goede kleurweergave ; Prachtige hdr-weergave ; Strak design

Hoge prijs ; Grote wandafstand bij ophangen ; Slome soc

KD65A1 im Test: Sonys erster Bravia-OLED-TV

Disappointed not told about non population of EPG

 

Customers should be made aware that the EPG will not populate when connected via satellite only. Spent a lot of money on this product only to find out we had the delay and extra cost of fitting an aerial - seems a backward technological step. After...

Great TV

 

I was looking for a new 4K ultra HD and had my mind set on an LG model but I'm so pleased I went for the sony instead. Firstly it's a great looking TV with a tiny bezel all the way round which means you are soley concentrating on the picture. The sound...

Great TV, Good price, not so good with advice!

 

I bought this 65" Sony TV from Richer Sound. Good price and excellent TV. My only criticism is there advice on who to install and fix the TV to the wall! The first contractor quoted £300 even with me supplying the fixing kit and the second contractor...

Amazing TV

 

Bought this in January and I have to say it's the best TV I've ever had. HD picture is very good, UHD is absolutely amazing and SD isn't great (but I don't watch much in SD). Sound is better than my old sound bar and the vibrating screen actually works...
