Whatever angle you take, Sony's KD-65X9005B is a formidable 4K proposition. With its mould-breaking design, pixel-pushing picture processing and audiophile pretensions, it sees Sony's TV division at its most confident in years. Also available in 55in and...

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...

Rival television companies tout motion-enabled remotes and voice controlled sets, but these half-baked features are more gimmick than value add. Sony's focus on sound and picture quality has less appeal on paper, but it makes a great difference to...

For its first foray into 4K, Sony bucked the trend for wimpy TV audio by introducing a panel flanked by forward-firing drivers and unapologetic amplification. See Best Smart TVs: what is the best Smart TV of 2014. For this second iteration, the Sony...

The first TV manufacturer to enthusiastically throw its weight behind 4K, Sony has expanded its UHD line with 2160p sets that embrace its signature wedge design. The 65-inch Sony KD-65X9005B featured here combines leading-edge UHD picture processing and...

The Sony KD-65X9005B is a thoroughly intoxicating example of leading-edge 4K tech. The UHD image quality with native content exhibits a depth and detail that's beguiling, while its 2160p upscaling talents are top notch. You can be confident that this...

This updated X9005-series Ultra HD TV is another hit for Sony. The 2014 version (X9005B) takes things even further with an excellent-quality screen, first-rate picture quality, plus exceptional sound (for a TV)—something our ears have never had the...

Sony's KD-65X9005B produces really stunning picture quality, not just with UltraHD video, but also with Blu-rays and HD broadcasts. Its sound quality is top notch too thanks to its meaty speakers. The chunky design, 3D performance and smart TV system...

If you're thinking about upgrading your TV and taking the 4K plunge then you'd be hard pressed to find anything nearly as good as the Sony X9005B. Although the 65-inch version's £3,600 price isn't small, it's a lot more affordable than...

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...

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...

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 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...

As a statement piece, the Sony KD-84X9005 is something else. It’s beautiful to behold and able to drop jaws to floors when graced with the right source material – and that includes vanilla 2K content. The football fraternity and Hollywood creatives...

As we mentioned near the start of this review, 4K sources are not certain to go mainstream any time soon, or even at all. But as well as side-stepping this issue by delivering the best 3D and Blu-ray pictures we've seen, if there's one thing the 84X9005...

Sony 65X9005C – First Impressions from CES 2015 Although it's not the most premium model on Sony's CES 2015 stand, the 65-inch 4K 65X9005C seems to be the TV the Japanese brand most wants to shout about. As soon as you approach Sony's booth you're...
