Sony XBR-65A1E 65” Bravia OLED TV Overview

A lot of things have changed since Sony introduced the first OLED TV, but somethings have stayed the same. The Sony XBR A1E 4K television features over 8 million self-illuminating pixels that are precisely and individually controlled by the Sony X1 Extreme processor.

Exquisite Contrast, Perfect Blacks

Sony’s OLED TV is like nothing you’ve ever seen before with truly exceptional black, shadow, and color. Over 8 million self-illuminating pixels are precisely and individually controlled by the X1 Extreme processor creating exquisite, unprecedented contrast. 

Pure Black, Perfect Vision

Sony's OLED pixels work individually and can be turned off completely to deliver absolute black. This level of supreme contrast reveals detail, depth, textures, and colors for a view that is stunningly real. 

Uncover the Detail with 4K HDR

High Dynamic Range (HDR) will change the way you look at TV. Combined with 4K Ultra HD resolution, HDR video content delivers exceptional detail, color, and contrast, with a far wider range of brightness than other video formats. The result is the most life-like picture TVs have ever been able to create, with brilliant highlights and fine detail. 

Everything Should Look Like 4K HDR

Sony's newly developed 4K HDR Processor X1 Extreme outperforms their conventional 4K Processor X1 with 40% more real-time image processing power. It takes everything you watch and improves it to near 4K HDR quality. Object-based HDR Remaster technology can detect, analyze and optimize each object in the picture individually to adjust the overall contrast for a more natural and realistic picture on screen. 

A Revolution in TV Sound

Unlike most TV speakers, sound comes to you from the entire screen, immersing you in exciting new entertainment experiences.

Vibrant Colors, Smooth Gradations

Only when surrounded by true black do colors seem really vibrant. Colors are as rich and vivid as nature’s own, thanks to the TRILUMINOS Display with more shades of red, green, and blue than ever before. You’ll enjoy rich, authentic images that evoke the emotion in every scene. And, 4K HDR Super Bit Mapping reveals thousands of shades and gradations of light, for sunsets as bright and clear as real life. 

360 Degrees of Sophistication

No distractions. This OLED TV is more than just beautiful. It's designed so that the stand and speakers virtually disappear—appearing as if it's floating—leaving only the brilliance of its picture. The screen is edged with a slim 4-side frame that maximizes the viewing area. 

A Genius TV, A Smarter Home

Find all the entertainment you can dream of, faster than ever. From movies and TV shows to thousands of apps, Sony’s Android TV brings you everything in an instant. Cast your favorite apps with Google Cast, and Voice Search helps you find the entertainment you want. And with Google Home compatibility, simply voice-control your TV and ask it to do things, like play your favorite YouTube videos. 

Upscale to a More Natural Picture

The difference is clear. You’ll see life-like detail and stunning clarity, no matter what you're watching. Two powerful image improvement databases work together, dynamically improving images in real time. 4K X-Reality PRO upscales images to near 4K clarity, while a second database cleans the picture and reduces on-screen noise. Every single pixel is enhanced beautifully by the powerful 4K HDR Processor X1 Extreme. 

Live TV, No Annual Contract

PlayStation Vue now available on Android TV. Enjoy live TV streaming with no annual contract and no surprise fees. Experience premium content, including sports, news, and more from your favorite networks. 

Motionflow Keeps the Action Smooth

TV that keeps up with real life. Sony’s refresh rate technology enhances the OLED’s unique panel speed to allow fast moving action sequences in sports and movies to be seen with life-like clarity. 

Maximize the Viewing Area

The screen is edged with a slim 4-sided frame that maximizes the viewing area. 

Just Say What You Want

Spend less time browsing, and more time watching. Voice search on Android TV provides you with the power of Google search in 42 languages, allowing you to find content across different services without the hassle of time-consuming text entry. 

Send to a Bigger, Better Screen with Google Cast

Your Favorite Apps, on Your TV

Enjoy a huge range of apps from Google Play, including YouTube, Netflix, Amazon Video, Hulu, Pandora, and more. Also, play your favorite Android games on the big screen.

The A1E is outstanding. Best of the best!
BLOWN AWAY. That is what you will be when you see OLED technology alongside the brilliant 4K HDR Processor X1 Extreme technology built in this outstanding piece of art. This is coming from owners of the 2016 65' Sony X930D. We usually love wall mounting our TVs but not with our A1E. It is breathtaking, and it really takes you somewhere else. It's a whole different experience. The blacks are just deep. The colors are vibrant. It has this glossy vibrant elegant look to it. After a long day, coming to see the picture quality on something as basic as TV CHANNELS is just a real luxury and treat as you can see in my pictures/video attached to this review. And well, you can imagine the 4K/HDR content. It's brilliant. If you can splurge, splurge ahead. It is an epic TV.

GREAT PICTURE but cosmetic defects
This tv is hands down has the best picture quality in my opinion. Everything is beautiful, and even though this is an OLED it still gets really bright. Bright as a LED? No, but it makes up for it with no light bleed, and perfect blacks. The only thing I would have to knock this for is how it curves naturally while on the stand. The screen is so big, and thin it'll bend while on its kickstand. The bend is about 1/8 of an inch but it's still a defect. Also how the screen will warp if used too long. Other than these two things... I love it. If Sony could fix these problems in the future, I believe it would be better than ever.

I bought this TV after reading the reviews, and it has lived up to all the hype! I replaced an 11 year old rear project Sony XBR and hope for many long years of enjoyment from this device.

I have been buying Sony TV's for 30 plus years and always buy the top of their XBR line. I only replace them when the latest newest milestone comes along. I looked at EVERY high end TV from Pioneer, LG, and Samsung and the SONY OLED 4K HDR 65" had the most realistic photo quality picture of them all. EVERYTHING looks better on this TV. Dish HD, BluRay, Apple TV and even YouTube looks awesome. The best and blackest blacks to the brightest snow covered mountains are perfect. I can not imagine they can top perfection after this set. Anything sharper would seem impossible. Even a foot away from the picture on 4K HDR it is perfect. And the bonus feature of having the screen become the speaker system for normal TV viewing is a huge bonus. Just a picture with a 1/2" frame around the whole screen. No giant logos or bright LED on the front just a perfect picture and pretty darn good sound. A++ Sony!

OLED technology + Sony’s experience and innovation done a magic here, it’s one of best looking TV period, acoustic sound delivers awesome sound experience with good base. 4K processing is awesome, Sony’s X1 processor delivers super picture quality.

Black level, well I haven’t noticed when I was using LED tv, but experiencing with OLED I can spot huge difference.

Android TV is cool feature too, it’s not perfect but it does basic job done, Netflix, google music, games works perfect. Worth to mention Google Assistant using voice command, is must have feature.

Overall I am so happy with TV, there is no look back for at least couple of years. Sony deserves a big round of applause!!

I have owned my OLED for just over a month now an I can not believe the picture and sound quality. This is a no brainier if you are in the market for a new TV and if you can get over the price, it is so worth it. The picture is incredible and you will have no problem viewing the screen from an angle

Display- great! hands down the best looking consumer display available.
Sound- acoustic surface tech is very cool... but the sound field still small and needs augmentation with an external audio system.
UI/software- a bit laggy and outdated... passable, but not great.

Overall fantastic display with some rough edges in the UI experience. Audio is passable, but needs augmentation for a better experience.

SONY OLED great build and quality
So my 1st tv was and still working is the Pioneer Elite Kuro. I've been waiting for the OLEDs to come out. I waited for Sony because of their processing chip. I bought my 1st OLED A1E last fall and just was very impressed with it. So impressed I had to buy a second one for another room. TV is great and the latest firmware gives you "internal" Dolby Vision.
