The 2017 line of Sony 4K HDR Ultra HD TVs comprises the X800E/X850E, X900E, X930E/X940E, và the previously introduced flagship Z9D series. Sony’s new models (excluding the Bravia A1 OLED) have been priced out và are now available for presale at Best Buy, slated to hit stores nationwide in March 2017. Now, let’s dive into the details.

X800E/X850E Series

Boasting similar features và performance, the X800E & X850E series are differentiated primarily by screen form size — 43-, 49-, and 55-inch models hóa trang the X800E series. The 65- & 75-inch variants get the X850E badge, but they also get a new chip offering HDR Pro Remastering for an HDR-like experience with non-HDR content, and Super Bit Mapping for smoother màu sắc gradations as well. As the entry level to Sony’s LED/LCD TV line, one might think Sony skimped on the X800E series’ processing và picture quality, but this segment is loaded with top-tier tech that’s been trickled down from higher-end models, including Sony’s excellent 4K X-reality Pro processing chip, và its Triluminous Display giải pháp công nghệ for expanded màu sắc gamut và increased màu sắc accuracy.

In addition to lớn Google’s app android TV operating system, Sony has also built in Google’s home assistant, allowing for voice-based interaction and commands.

Suggested retail pricing is as follows:

XBR-75X850E, 75-inch class — $5,000XBR-65X850E, 65-inch class — $2,500XBR-55X800E, 55-inch class — $1,900XBR-49X800E, 49-inch class — $1,100XBR-43X800E, 43-inch class — $1,000

X900E Series

The X900E is an all new segment within Sony’s TV lineup. In addition lớn the aforementioned 4K X-Reality Pro chip, X1 HDR Pro Remastering and Super Bit Mapping, and Triluminous Display features, the X900E adds X-tended Dynamic Range Pro 5x, which we witnessed increasing contrast substantially over prior-year models. Interestingly, a full-array local dimming (FALD) backlight system, typically a high-end feature, is limited to this series (with the exception of the 75-inch X940E & Z9D). One might think that FALD would offer the best brightness, contrast, & black màn chơi control, but Sony says its more advanced, edge-lit X930E/X940E models actually surpass the performance of this series. Pricing is as follows:

XBR-75X900E, 75-inch class — $6,000XBR-65X900E, 65-inch class — $3,300XBR-55X900E, 55-inch class — $2,400XBR-49X900E, 49-inch class — $1,700

X930E/X940E series

*

This series is at the highest rung of Sony’s lineup before getting to lớn the over-the-top flagship Z9D series introduced late last year. In addition to all the aforementioned features, the X930E series employs an improved version of its edge-lighting system called Slim Backlight Drive +, which Sony claims offers 10 times the contrast of a conventional LED/LCD TV. We saw a side-by-side demonstration between the new X930E & last year’s X930D, và the contrast improvements were indeed substantial. This series has better black levels, better shadow detail, & much higher brightness, making it especially well suited for extreme HDR performance. This could be the finest edge-lit television we see in 2017.

The X940E, which is available only in a 75-inch version, offers a souped-up full-array backlight system for performance that treads dangerously into the Z9D’s territory. An HDR gaming demonstration using the PlayStation 4 Pro was especially impressive, và we expect the TV will perform equally well for TV & movie playback. To lớn get such performance, however, one will have to pay handsomely for it. Pricing is as follows:

XBR-75X940E, 75-inch class — $7,500XBR-65X930E, 65-inch class — $4,000XBR-55X930E, 55-inch class — $3,300

Based on our brief demonstrations, these appear lớn be the finest TVs Sony has made lớn date, with excellent HDR performance (including Dolby Vision, HDR 10, và HLG) and, again, some of the finest picture processing available. We look forward lớn reviewing all series models in depth later this year. And when we do, we look forward lớn using Sony’s new Ultra HD Blu-ray player as a source. Below are those details.
