Have to admit that I don't get on with the UI on these. Just not quite refined yet.

​Yeah, it is. Shame, because it works really well. But they priced it too high.
If you don't need a 65" I'd highly recommend paying £40 more for the 55" XD93, its a far superior TV:

Code: Call60 brings it down to £1139.99

Really? Thats a shame. Gaikai demo with mass effect 2 was pretty impressive before it was bought up.

£50 more at costco if you want the 5 year warranty
For me, anything that doesn't have ambilight is inferior. So I guess Philips it is!

10 Bit or 8 Bit?



Any 2016/2017 model that advertises HDR support has 10-bit processing (which is the vital bit).

This isn't a TV to buy for HDR though, I'm not sure about this larger XD75 specifically but the smaller XD70 isn't even wide gamut. It's effectively a non-HDR TV from an output perspective. You need the XD80+ for wide gamut, and the XD93+ for backlight control.

Sony never been good with customer support or quality control.
I got the Sony TV 2014/2015 models can't remember off the top of my head the models. Numerous problems with blobs on screen. Smart TV function is the worse on Sony TV, apps wouldn't load. Once the apps I downloaded vanished. USB playback awful. The entire UI on Sony TV has to be the worse, think they should employ LG or SAMSUNG software division.

I gave up with TV's. I now stick to Monitor (ASUS) for gaming and movies. Going to hold out for 4K HDR monitor. Great for low input lag/response rate etc. Best for competitive gaming and movies. Sony 4K TV's had problems with input lag when in 4K mode, don't know if the fix has made a huge difference. Monitors have far better picture quality than these so called expensive Sony, LG or SAMSUNG TV.

​specialoffers is slightly wrong.

10 bit doesn't mean 1000 nits, 10 bit is the amount of colours a pixel can display. NITs are the measurement of brightness.

The higher the NITs the better the HDR will be. Samsung advertise this as the HDR Premium range, and some LG OLEDs also carry this branding.

Back to HDR though, (and I know this now after being stung buying a HDR compatible TV and not a proper 10bit panel) 8 BIT means the TV can show 16.7 million colours, 10 BIT means the TV will show up to 1.07 billion, a huge difference.

Alot if TVs have been getting away with advertising HDR on their TVs even when all it means is that they are HDR compatible, or, can receive a full HDR10 signal and process it.

If you are going to drop a serious amount on a TV and want the very best, make sure to look for full HDR10 capability, not just compatibility. And try and get the brightest NITs you can.

From research i have done after being stung, it seems the best entry level is the KS7000 series from Samsung. They have the full HDR10 and 1000 NITs of brightness.

Hope that helps some
when you click on get deal it adds on over £300 for the playstation
One other thing to mention, sony don't use the UHD premium spec, but the xd9305 posted above i believe is the only Sony TV that matches the spec (until the new range comes out), so if picture quality is more of a priority over size I'd be looking at that one.
The os is so slow and laggy I wouldn't bother.
I bought the XD70 55" and have been gaming on it. Played Halo 5 recently in 4k and it looked very crisp. Played Horizon and that looked very good too.

As I have only come off a 1080p tv the pictures looks good to me. I've said this in other threads about this tv, the first thing I noticed was that the blacks weren't as great asmy 1080p TV, that had darker blacks.

I installed VLC media player on this tv to play some videos and noticed that VLC wouldn't play some of the videos but the built in video app would play them, that was a surprise.

It worked out at around £380 for me so I assumed this was a good tv for that price, am I wrong?

Not "true" 10 bit, it's 8-bit plus FRC (Frame Rate Control)
EmperorRosko

Back to HDR though, (and I know this now after being stung buying a HDR … Back to HDR though, (and I know this now after being stung buying a HDR compatible TV and not a proper 10bit panel) 8 BIT means the TV can show 16.7 million colours, 10 BIT means the TV will show up to 1.07 billion, a huge difference.



EmperorRosko is slightly wrong.

All HDR TVs can display a billion shades, it's just how they achieve it that differs.

8-bit or 10-bit refers to the number of brightness levels each subpixel can have. 8-bit is two to the power of eight, or 256 and 10-bit is similar, or 1024.

Those brightness levels over three subpixels with colour filters in front combine to produce a pixel that can display either 16 million or 1 billion colours.

But why stop there? Pixels on a 4K TV are so tiny that they can easily work together to produce more shades like subpixels do - so 8-bit TVs can produce exactly the same 1 billion colours that way.

It doesn't make a lot of difference to output whether it's an 8-bit panel or 10-bit panel.

10-bit colour depth is important in other areas. You want a TV that accepts a signal with colours expressed that way or you won't be able to connect future HDR devices, and you want a TV with 10-bit or higher internal processing as that prevents banding when mapping between different colour spaces.

Both are pretty much standard on everything that advertise HDR though, and certainly on any TV with a reasonable level of HDR display ability.


The big variation in hardware support for HDR is the backlight, not the LCD panel. Both it's wavelength (colour volume), brightness and ability to be dimmed to different levels in different areas.

To get a high colour gamut, high brightness and several hundred dimming zones you have to spend over £2k at this size. Or £1500 if you're happy with a nearly new model, Panasonic's refurbished DX902 is an excellent deal.

This TV has just a standard backlight, with maybe a slightly increased brightness but no ability to use it beyond lighting up the whole screen.
Cannot complain with my Sony android TV's

Ignore the haters the OS is fine
Crikey, I wouldn't know where to put a TV this size in my house where it wouldn't totally dominate the room even if mounted on a wall. I'm guessing most people turn a spare room into a dedicated cinema/video games room for a TV this big. A friend recently bought a huge TV and put it in the corner of their living room where it obstructs half their window because it is just too big for the size of the room. It looks so wrong and ridiculous but each to their own.

Nothing make your living room look worse or more chavy than a MASSIVE telly. Hot

Im an Android fan and got the 55" mentioned at the start of this thread. It's a decent TV but Android is slow and laggy. It was upgraded to Marshmallow a month ago which improved things but its still slow and laggy at times. Not to mention frequent app crashes and the need to reboot. Personally I wouldn't by Android TV again unless it's just Sony being absolutely ****.
Hi is this tv 8 bit or 10 bit? Confused whether to get this or KD-65XD7505 as from what I've read it's 10 bit and motion is powerful but not sure that will make much of a difference

Ooo how?
EndlessWaves is slightly wrong.

8-bit is the telly you want if you have a Master System or NES and want to maximise optimal picture qualities. SNES or Megadrive and you want to go with the 16-bit.

And I really know my stuff so let this be an end to it.

Don't know if it will help but I read up on the xd93 that if you don't use it turn off you view and the os is much quicker, might help.

I disabled it already since I need to record TV and you can't record anything if you use YouView. Yet another flaw of this TV. You can't pause live TV which I hate too. My 7 year old HD recorder can do that
