Sony KD-65ZD9BU


The 65-inch KD-65ZD9BU is Sony's most concerted effort yet to make a TV that's optimised for high dynamic range playback. As well as introducing new HDR-focused processing, the £3,999 set excitingly boasts an innovative backlight system that Sony...

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 KD-100ZD9 4K HDR LED TV review


If you have the space in your cinema room and the money in your wallet, the Sony KD-100ZD9 is a reference screen that does 4K HDR justice.

Sony KD-65ZD9BU 4K TV review


Sony's dazzling flagship TV stops just short of Ultra HD perfection

Stunning 4K picture with clean, crisp detail & good colour balance ; Gorgeous design ; Tons of video streaming apps

Rivals offer better black depth and finer subtle detail ; Motion isn’t stable ; Reedy audio performance

Stylish and slick with a stunning picture, but doesn't match the performance of some cheaper rivals

Sony ZD9 4K TV review: The HDR master


The pages of AV history are littered with "here today, gone tomorrow" features only truly memorable for the amount of hype that surounded their launch. We have no doubt, though, that the latest feature on the AV block, high dynamic range (HDR)...

Delivers benchmark (LCD) picture quality with HDR sources, no slouch with SDR sources either, arguably decent value for the level of performance it delivers, smart system is packed with apps

Powerful backlight system doesn’t deliver completely flawless results, Android TV remains a clunky and overbearing smart system, sound quality is nothing like as good as its pictures

The 65ZD9 is not a perfect TV (if such a thing could ever exist). Its Android smart engine is more of a hindrance than a help, its sound is pretty average, and there's still some evidence of backlight haloing around stand-out HDR objects, despite...

Sony KD-65ZD9 review


Sony's 2016 flagship TV sets new standards

Stunning HDR picture quality ; Brilliant SDR picture quality ; Ground-breaking backlight ; Excellent presets

Android TV feels sluggish ; Pretty average audio ; It’s expensive ; Limited effective viewing angle

Although its £4,000 price will likely put the 65ZD9 frustratingly beyond the reach of most AV fans, its combination of ground-breaking contrast, colour and brightness adds up to the most cutting-edge picture quality we’ve ever seen. At £4,000 Sony’s...

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...

Sony's 4K flagship delivers an outstanding home theatre experience, with excellent colour reproduction and best-in-class contrast, plus the option of 3D playback and support of all major HDR formats (including a scheduled upgrade for Dolby Vision). Key...

Sony Z9D (ZD9)


Sony decided to expand its TV line-up this fall with a new flagship TV. Z9D in the US and ZD9 in Europe uses a special "Focused Light Beam" technology to challenge other high-end full array local dimming LCDs. Sony's TV joins the exclusive club of LCD...

Impressive peak brightness ; HDR and DCI-P3 with many local dimming zones ; Great picture processing ; Best Motion system ; Decent backlight homogeneity

Narrow viewing angles ; Halos" around bright objects in the picture ; Too much 3D crosstalk ; Weak sound ; Mediocre input lag

Sony Z9D in the US and ZD9 in Europe is a flagship TV and with its very high peak brightness, lots of dimmable zones, and splendid HDR performance it can certainly compete with other high-end LCD TVs, including the much acclaimed DX900 from Panasonic.
