This UHD screen is quite the charmer. It's well specified, with a strong connected proposition thanks to that integrated YouView roll-back EPG, and image quality is spectacular – in fact it performs better than the slimmer, more expensive X90C. All...

The 55in KD-55X8505C is the honey trap for Sony's 2015 4K UHD models. Priced considerably below the ultra-slim X90C and the hi-res audio-capable X93C/X94C behemoths, this is UHD for the brand-buying mainstream. The design is conventionally thin, with a...

This is a, just above, entry-level Ultra HD from Sony built around the Android operating system. At current prices (September 2015), you can pick up the 65-inch version for just shy of two thousand four hundred pounds, although they seem curiously thin...

Is the Sony KD-65X8505C worth a look? For sure. A few notable flaws mean we're not quite blown away as we have been with some 4K TVs, but what Sony has here is still a lot of tech for money.If you want a 4K TV, this one offers good value.Read all out...

The 65X8505C is far from perfect. A couple of surprising - given the Sony branding - backlight and excessive sharpness issues together with merely average audio performance, uninspiring 3D and a currently cumbersome Android TV smart system take some of...

What is the Sony KD-65X8505C? The Sony KD-65X8505C is the considerably more manageable and affordable 65in 4K UHD alternative to Sony's mammoth KD-75X9405C . It achieves this greater mass-market appeal predominantly through replacing the 75X9405C's...

Sony's picture processing is as good as ever. The X8505B benefits from excellent motion compensation and top-quality upscaling. The only thing that we were disappointed by was the choice of panel technology: IPS is known for its poor black levels and...

Sony KD-55X8505B 4K TV verdict Open Gallery If you're after the very shiniest, most sparklingly advanced 4K TV out there, this isn't it. It doesn't have the sexiest styling. It doesn't have the fanciest interface. It doesn't have the very...

The Sony KD-55X8505C produces a pleasing image, even though it's understandably outperformed by its more expensive X93C and X94C cousins which are equipped with LED local dimming. Looking further afield, the flat-screen Samsung JU7000 (the 55-incher...

Sony's flagship 4K TV, the X9005 is a thing of absolute beauty and possibly the best TV we've seen so far in 2014. That comes at quite a price, however, and many will be looking to make the entry into the Ultra HD market with something more affordable....

One of the best slim 4K HDTV's currently out there.Gone are the days of the bulky and obsolete CRT and plasma TV monitors in modern households as LED and LCD TVs are the way to go. These days, slimmer TVs have become a necessity is most households as...

Il televisore X85C in prova, pur appartenendo alla gamma media di Sony, regala performance convincenti, con una qualità delle immagini sopra la media e un design sottile e leggero.È vero che il prezzo dell'esemplare da 65” non è proprio popolare, ma si...

Sony hat mit dem KD-55X8505C eine gelungene Modellpflege vollzogen. Das neue Design bleibt zwar Geschmackssache, technisch hat sich gegenüber dem Vorgänger aber einiges geändert: Angefangen beim Android-Betriebssystem, das sich durch ein hervorragendes...

Телевизор SONY 65X8505C далек от совершенства. Превосходное качество картинки – это замечательно, но стоило позаботиться о более мощном звуке и лучшем эффекте 3D. Много вопросов вызывает Android TV. В тоже время, стоимость модели вполне привлекательная...

Sony 55X8505 tilbyder mange gode funktioner til en overkommelig pris. Dets store styrke er den gode opskalering, der sikrer, at selv middelmådigt HD-materiale ser rigtig godt ud i stort format. Sony-skærmen har også fremragende kontrast og lysstyrke...

International Review By ljudochbild.se on 67

Sony fortsätter att leverera TV-apparater med ganska så ”clean, no nonsense design”. Den mörka, tunna ramen och en stilig sockel i mörk krom förstärker det minimalistiska uttrycket. En diskret Sony-logga med en lysdiod i nederkant får TV:n att verka...

Sony-skjermen byr på mange gode egenskaper til en gunstig pris. Dens første store styrke er den gode oppskaleringen, som sørger for at selv middelmådig HD-materiale ser riktig flott ut i stort format. 55X8505 har også utmerket kontrast, og jevn...

Wer satte Farben mag, wird das knackige und plastische Bild von Sonys Triluminos-Display lieben. Die 3D-Wiedergabe überzeugt hingegen nur bedingt und auch in Sachen Benutzerfreundlichkeit ist noch Luft nach...

Die Bildqualität des Sony überzeugte voll und ganz, besseres ist in dieser Preisklasse schwer zu finden. Auch die schlichte und edle Optik des Fernsehers kommt an. Am Betriebssystem muss Sony allerdings noch feilen, bislang ist Android eher weniger...
