Sony KD-65XD9305


The 65-inch KD-65XD9305 is the first TV to emerge from Sony's 2016 TV range. A high-end set costing £2,800, it sits below only the flagship 75-inch KD-75XD9405 model in Sony's latest TV lineup.

Sony KD-65XD9305 hands on


Sony launched a number of 4K Ultra HD TVs at CES 2016 and we've been spending some time on the show floor getting to know one of the new arrivals, the KD-65XD9305...

Our experience of Sony's 2015 TVs was a bit of a mixed bag, but we're excited to see what 2016 has to offer. Initial signs from the

Sony Bravia KD-65XD9305 4K HDR TV review


What happens when TVs diet

Pictures often look exquisite ; Incredible super-slim design ; Lots of app choice ; Built-in YouView works well

Android TV can frustrate ; Average sound quality ; Some backlight blocking issues ; Horrible remote control

Boasting an ultra-slim design, an innovative new type of lighting system, a native 4K resolution and playback of new high dynamic range pictures, Sony's 65-inch KD-65XD9305 looks on paper like one of the year's most exciting high-end TVs. But has its...

Sony KD65XD9305BU review

  (Rating Hidden)

You'll need a big front room and even bigger pockets for this top-of-the-range 65-inch Sony. The heftily priced Sony KD65XD9305BU offers a host of features, including the latest 4K HDR technology. But does it back this up with performance to match?

Sony XD93 (KD-65XD9305) Ultra HD 4K TV Review


Sony's new KD-65XD9305 promises Ultra HD resolution in an ultra-thin panel but can their slim backlight drive deliver a decent picture performance?

Excellent contrast performance ; Accurate greyscale & colour gamut ; Impressive HDR performance ; Great video processing ; Largely effective dimming system ; Plenty of good features ; Attractive design & great build quality

3D performance poor ; Limited viewing angles ; Smart platform is buggy

The Sony KD-65XD9305 is marvellously engineered TV that combines an attractive appearance with features and specifications that have resulted in a great flagship TV. The minimalist design is striking, with an incredibly thin panel, whilst the build...

Sony XD93: strak design voor aan de muur


De XD93 van Sony heeft een prachtig uiterlijk en is zeer plat, waardoor hij heel dicht tegen een muur is te monteren. De daarvoor benodigde, speciale muurbeugel krijg je erbij. Ondanks de platte behuizing heeft Sony local dimming met tweeëndertig zones...

Strak ontwerp ; Kabelmanagement in voet ; Plat tegen de muur te monteren ; Goede kleurweergave

Zwakke soc ; Mediaspeler werkt niet soepel ; Crosstalk bij 3d-weergave

Sony KD-65XD9305 im Test


Der Sony KD-65XD9305 soll nach eigenem Bekunden ihr derzeit hübschester 4K-HDR-Fernseher sein. Bei video muss der 164-Zentimeter-Riese allerdings auch seine inneren Werte offenlegen und sich auf Bestenlisten-Tauglichkeit abklopfen lassen.

brillantes Bild ; viele Online- Angebote ; tolle Verarbeitung

derzeit kein USB-Recording ; unübersichtlich viele App-Stores

Die Sony-Ingenieure haben beim Sony KD-65XD9305 ganze Arbeit geleistet. In diesem Preissegment bekommt der Kunde ein grandios lebendiges Bild in edlem Gewand. Dabei lassen sich die - durch ein Soundsystem behebbaren - Schwächen im Ton locker verschmerzen.

Test: Sony KD-65XD9305 (65-Zoll-LCD-TV)


Der KD-65XD9305 von Sony kann im Test mit seiner sehr guten Bildqualität überzeugen. Dank der "Slim Backlight Drive"-Technologie hat er nicht nur einen gemessenen Schachbrettkontrast von 216:1, sondern ist mit 36mm auch vergleichsweise dünn. Als...

Sehr gute Bildqualität ; HDR und 4K ; Inkl. Wandhalterung

Hoher Stromverbrauch ; Keine Zweitfernbedienung ; Kein DivX

Fazit: Der KD-65XD9305 von Sony kann im Test mit seiner sehr guten Bildqualität überzeugen. Dank der „Slim Backlight Drive“-Technologie hat er nicht nur einen guten Schachbrettkontrast von 216:1, sondern ist mit 36mm auch vergleichsweise dünn. Als...
