What about the new Sony XBR-85X950H ?

A good mid-range television. This is how we can introduce the Sony XBR-85X950H.
First, the size : 84.6 inches on this device.
The engineers from Sony say they have worked with specialist from the Hollywood studios to get a high quality result.
Concerning technology, it is worth noting that this model is delivered with a Ultra HD 4K resolution.  This television is part of the main group of current TVs. It doesn’t completely stands out among its competitors with this choice of Ultra HD 4K.
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.

XBR-85X950H from Sony – Design

The Sony XBR-85X950H with its simple design is an interesting alternative for anyone who wants an elegant television set in the mid-range segment.
A product that is correct in view of its price. A sleek but effective design. It has the potential to compete with other TV sets on the market.
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.

XBR-85X950H from Sony – The screen

The display of this XBR-85X950H is handled with care. This will allow connoisseurs to enjoy a quality rendering in home theater mode. The colours are faithful and deep black.

This model has a Ultra HD 4K display. With a screen size of 84.6 inches, this XBR-85X950H is positioned in the segment of large models. At the same time, we are dealing with a nice display on the screen.
Designed with a frequency of 100 Hz, this TV has a better rendering compared to its competitors, in the same category.
Even better, thanks to its advanced technology, the screen of this television provides a Ultra HD 4K quality resolution.
My opinion to conclude on the display part. It’s in the range, without flourish or excess. An additional choice in the mid-range.

The sound of the Sony XBR-85X950H

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 XBR-85X950H still has the advantage of not being saturated. In any case, the installation as presented ex-factory is just sufficient for this television set
The equipment consists of  two baffles and a power output of 10 W.

Finally, if we have to summarize the sound of the XBR-85X950H up, it is the word perfection that stands out.

In short, the sound is enough to cover your everyday needs. The XBR-85X950H Sony is not designed for home cinema. That’s not what we are expecting.
