As far as Sony are concerned it's Ultra HD 4K or bust. The Japanese giant is placing all of its eggs in one Ultra HD basket and the success or failure of the format could well decide their TV division's future. Sony are still making Full HD TVs, of...

Sony's X9 range combines 4K resolution, a wedge design and Magnetic Fluid Speakers, and comes in 79in, 65in and 55in screen sizes. This, the 65in Sony KD-65X9005B, is the first Ultra HD 4K TV we've seen from Sony this year. It will cost you around £3600...

What is the Sony KDL-65X9005B? The 65-inch 65X9005B is one of our most eagerly anticipated TVs of the year. Why? Because it kicks off Sony's second generation of 4K/UHD, building on last year's sensational 65X9005A with a plethora of new improvements and...

This article contains a fair amount of technical discussion, so let us summarise in an easy-to-understand manner. The Bravia KD-55X9005A is a good effort from Sony to bring an affordable, high-quality 4K UHDTV to the masses. Available to buy for around...

You need to look at Sony's X9 in a certain way to really appreciate how good it is. This is a TV right at the cutting edge of what you can get at home right now, but with that comes its own problems. Not that many people have 4K sets, so there simply...

With four times HD's definition, 4K is simply extraordinary – so sharp it takes your breath away. This is not the TV for anyone hoping to watch less television; you will watch far more. In my opinion, 4K is a much more significant development than 3D...

It's a strange thing to say that a major highlight on one of the first 55-inch Ultra HD TVs is, in fact, sound quality. But that's exactly what the KD-55X9005A excels at, along with searing amounts of 4K detail and a fine upscaled Blu-ray experience. We...

We want to love the KD-55X9005A. In fact, we do love the KD-55X9005A – it looks gorgeous, it sounds superb, and it's capable of absolutely blowing your socks off with its picture quality. But we probably wouldn't buy one unless we'd just come into a...

The Sony KD-65X9005 is an excellent TV that produces some of the best pictures we've seen on an LED set. It also has fantastic Full HD passive 3D support and speakers that really do produce excellent audio. It's very expensive though, and the benefits of...

Make no mistake, 4K content on this Sony TV looks stunning. But arguably – and surprisingly – the TV's sound quality almost steals the show. The new speaker design must have been a big gamble, but it's paid off and raises the sound...

I've heard a startling amount of rubbish spouted about 4K/Ultra HD TVs in recent months. ‘Nobody cares about more pixels'. ‘The human eye can't perceive the difference between normal HD and 4K resolutions'. ‘Forget UHD – what we need is OLED.' ‘4K is...

Sony's X9 offers the same Sony Entertainment Network platform as other 2013 Sony TVs with TV apps and access to streaming services. Besides our usual complaints of sluggishness and a suboptimal user experience there is one significant shortcoming. There...

There's a revolution in resolutions happening in the world of television. The now ubiquitous full-HD standard of 1920 x 1080 pixels, once the cutting edge of clarity, is being superseded by what's been termed 4k or ultra HD, able to deliver four times...

The Sony KD-55X9005 is the first relatively affordable UHD television. The new 55-inch 55X9005 costs £3,999. That's still a lot of money, you can buy two Full HD TVs of the same size for the same money. The picture quality of the 55X9005 is...

The Sony Bravia KD-55X9005A is hands-down the best TV we've ever reviewed, with or without the Ultra HD resolution! It combines sky-high contrast with perfectly faithful colours, virtually impeccable 3D rendering and amazing sound quality. Now all you...

The 65X9005A is a hugely significant TV. It proves that 4K-resolution pictures don't need 80-inch or more screens to look amazing, that 4K TVs don't have to cost five figures, and that you really can get amazing sound out of an integrated TV audio...

The Sony KD-65X9005A is the world's first 65-inch 4K Ultra HD TV. Potentially the harbinger of a new era of TV image quality, it combines 3840 x 2160 resolution with Smart connectivity and haute couture design. Also available is the lookalike 55-inch...

If the Sony KD-65X9005A is genuinely the harbinger of a new era of UHD TV, then we're all in for an exhilarating time over the next couple of years. This television sets new standards both in terms of raw picture performance and design, and...

What is the Sony KD-65X9005A? The Sony KD-65X9005A is basically the point where 4K resolution (aka Ultra HD) gets serious. Not because the other 4K TVs we've seen to date haven't already dazzled us with their 4K capabilities, but because with...
