Stephan Jukic – March 2, 2017
While some of Sony’s 2016 4K HDR TVs among the premium models (from the X850D and up) had a few weak spots in comparison to their Samsung competitors, they were still stunningly good ultra HD home entertainment options by any measure of the definition. This definitely applies to the X850D TV and despite a couple of weaknesses like peak brightness and black levels that aren’t quite as strong as those of its closest Samsung SUHD rival the KS8000, the X850D was and remains a superb piece of technology. Among all of its size ranges, only the 85 inch model comes with VA panel technology of the kind we usually recommend much more than IPS found in the other sizes of the X850D, but in the case of this particular Sony TV, the IPS still delivers remarkably decent contrast and is further balanced out by the X850D’s numerous other benefits.
As for the 65 inch X850D we’re mentioning here, it’s a fantastic piece of home theater technology for anyone who wants a full HDR experience and some of the best smart TV performance on today’s market. This of course brings us to the great Amazon.com deal that’s going for this exact TV in its wonderfully sized 65 inch version. Right now it’s selling for a price that we’d definitely call great and all the more so when you consider the free shipping (with some restrictions) that also applies in this particular offer on the X850D. For just $1,398, you can take home a TV that basically offers the best overall picture quality and value per dollar spent among all name brand TVs in the 65 inch range for less than $1500 and possibly even among TVs of this size costing less than $2000.
