It can display deep blacks in a dark room thanks to the high native contrast ratio and full array local dimming support. It can get very bright and delivers great HDR performance full of bright, vivid highlights. It has excellent motion handling, due to a nearly-instantaneous response time that makes the image look crisp and leaves fast-moving objects with very little blur trail. The input lag is very low, which makes it an excellent choice for gamers that are looking for a very responsive TV. Unfortunately, just like most VA panels, it has narrow viewing angles and those seated on the side will not experience the same great picture quality.
Model tested: 55” (XBR55X950G)
Should also be valid for the 65” (XBR65X950G).
The larger 75” (XBR75X950G) and 85” (XBR85X950G) sizes have different performance due to the ‘X-Wide Viewing Angle’ Feature. We expect them to have a lower contrast and different reflection handling, but a more accurate image when viewed at an angle.
