This television is delivered with a  HD resolution.  Attractive, user friendly, minimum bulk , quality image and sound, everything has been carefully finalized in this television, in order to make a nearly perfect product.
Although placed in the middle of the range, the manufacturer has tried to offer the viewer an image quality that allows an immersion.
We will see in detail if their objective is reached.

The design of the Sony KD-75ZH8

The Sony KD-75ZH8 appears as a real masterstroke of the brand regarding both its interior and exterior design.
The shapes are balanced and the overall rendering is beautiful to look at. A successful mid-range model.
A mid-range television set that relies heavily on its design and the quality of its materials; arguments that Sony has been promoting for some time now on these products. All this for a price that stays contained.

KD-75ZH8 from Sony – The screen

The Sony has a correct and well-calibrated image quality, but you have to do with a limited native contrast that is suitable for daytime viewing; forget about home theater programs in the dark.
With this new model, Sony confirms one of its technological choices. 
The Sony KD-75ZH8 is available in the HD resolution. In addition, with a screen of 74.5 inches, the KD-75ZH8 is positioned in the segment of large models. Whatever the characteristics, it is still a beautiful screen. On this point, don’t worry.
With a frequency of 60 Hz, this TV has a better rendering compared to its competitors, in the same category.
Finally, Sony has chosen to put advanced technology on this TV, which makes it possible to have an HD image quality .
To conclude the display part, we could say that it is interesting and effective; it is a mid-range TV that is worth the detour.

KD-75ZH8 from Sony – The sound

The sound quality is correct but nothing more. The typical low-medium and mid-range sounds are far from what the competition offers. The sound of the KD-75ZH8 still has the advantage of not being saturated. In any case, the installation as presented ex-factory is just sufficient for this television set

In short, the sound is enough to cover your everyday needs. The KD-75ZH8 Sony is not designed for home cinema. That’s not what we are expecting.

KD-75ZH8 from Sony – Its connectivity

All the available connectivity makes it possible to cover current needs.
With a number of connections below the average of its range, you will have to choose which appliance(s) in your home you need to connect to your TV.

KD-75ZH8 from Sony – The conclusion

In conclusion, the Sony KD-75ZH8 is a mid-range television set of good quality. Average in most areas, it is nevertheless a wise choice for consumers who want to have a well-made product.
This TV has the correct resolution, nothing more. Producing and marketing TVs today in HD is often sufficient and well suited for ‘basic’ uses. But this standard will certainly be outdated in a few years’ time. It is therefore a temporary and/or occasional choice. You’ve been warned.

Finally, we will note all the positive points that are to be added to the credit of this television set. Here are 3 that I find interesting:
