Enhanced Brightness, Incredible Contrast with Full Array Local Dimming & Boosting

Sony’s Full-Array Local Dimming and Boosting technology dynamically changes the light levels in sections of the screen depending on the content, resulting in a dramatic increase in contrast and brightness. Add in X-tended Dynamic Range PRO 6x, which gives the screen 6 times the contrast range of a conventional LED-edge lit TV. By accurately balancing the light output across the screen, darker scenes get darker and brighter scenes get brighter. 

Intelligent Processing, Ultimate Realism

Simply put, Sony's proprietary 4K HDR Picture Processor X1 Ultimate is their best processor, ever. Object-based rendering happens in real time at lightning speed to remaster and upscale everything you see to near-4K HDR quality. Everything on the screen is identified, analyzed, and optimized individually to adjust the overall contrast, sharpness, and color for a picture that looks nearly identical to the real thing. 

Experience a More Natural Picture with 4K X-Reality PRO & Object-Based Super Resolution

Every object, accurately displayed. With Object-Based Super Resolution in combination with 4K X-Reality PRO, you’ll see life-like detail, textures, and clarity in everything you watch. Leveraging intelligent dual database processing, pictures look cleaner with less on-screen noise. Every single pixel is enhanced beautifully by Sony’s best 4K HDR Picture Processor X1 Ultimate.

See the Big Picture with 4K HDR, IMAX Enhanced, and Dolby Vision

High Dynamic Range (HDR) picture is the way TV was always meant to be watched. 4K Ultra HD resolution and HDR video content combine to bring dazzling detail, color, and contrast to everything you watch, while keeping a far wider range of brightness than other video formats. IMAX Enhanced makes movies feel larger than life. Dolby Vision brings scenes to life with striking highlights, deeper darks, and vibrant colors. Whichever format you choose, Sony TVs deliver picture-perfect reality, creating an immersive and engaging cinematic experience. 

On-Screen Action and Motion Look Better Than Ever with X-Motion Clarity Technology

Scenes appear as they do in real life with X-Motion Clarity technology. This revolutionary, best-in-class technology from Sony refines action on the screen in real time with an incredible refresh rate for action that is brighter and clearer than ever before. 

TRILUMINOS Display & 4K HDR Super Bit Mapping Deliver Smooth and Vibrant Colors

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. 

An Immersive Audio Experience

Acoustic Multi-Audio adds two sound-positioning tweeters in the rear of the TV in addition to the bass reflex speakers to produce Sound-from-Picture Reality. With action and sound precisely aligned, your viewing becomes so much more immersive. 

A Genius TV, A Smarter Home

With Android TV and the Google Assistant built-in, simply ask and you shall receive. With hands-free voice search, just start with “Hey Google” to ask it questions, control smart home devices like Nest, or access many of the apps and services you already use every day. In addition, cast your favorite apps with Chromecast built-in, or enjoy a huge range of apps from Google Play, including YouTube, Netflix, Prime Video, Hulu, Spotify, and more.

Well-Connected to Your Smart Home

Apple HomeKit and Airplay 2 compatibility seamlessly integrates your iPhone, iPad and Mac with your Sony TV for effortless smart home management and content streaming.

Poor performance
The unit keeps turning off on its own, even following the guidelines from product support. The unit is under warranty and Sony is not stepping up to the plate.

Absolutely Worth it
This TV was an Upgrade to the XBR4300 and it is absolutely worth every penny. Coupled with a Surround System our home theater experience has never been this phenomena. Everything that we have watched or played on this TV has never seemed so gorgeous. I find myself everyday saying, "Wow this is such a good TV" that my partner is honestly getting sick of it. She's had to hear me say that everyday I look at it and marvel at it. Calling this a TV just doesn't feel right!

The picture quality is remarkable, accurate colors
Purchased this tv after nearly a year researching choices. I was not in a hurry and was interested in upgrading to 4k. Set up was straight forward, but challenges abound in trying to get all my devices connected; DVD, soundbar, audio system, etc... Still having trouble getting the soundbar to turn on when tv is turned on (my Samsung had no problem with that). Now I have to manually switch connecting the Optical out from Direct TV and Soundbar depending on what I am watching, i.e., movie or general tv stations. Also, the Alexa concept is interesting, still can't get that to work like in the store demo.

All in all, extremely satisfied with Sony Bravia in terms of the best picture out there for the money.

Great picture and I love options better than older Sony 55 inch 4K I had from 5-6 years ago.

Wonderful authentic color.
When I compared this Sony model with comparable models of other brands, I noticed Avery authentic look to the picture. The colors looked real, not enhanced by adjusting the picture contrast or added tinting. I also enjoyed the over all appearance of the case which houses the tv components. The bevel has a very clean look. The Sony remote which accompanied the tv was well designed - attractive & useful. I use my Sony Bravia with a Martin Logan sound bar so. I am unable to comment on the tv’s sound quality.

Picked up at Best Buy last day customers could browse, such timing.
Installed ourselves, was careful and not difficult. Best Buy had an install video we watched beforehand, it was actually helpful, good tips on unpackaging.
Beautiful picture straight out of box. There are apparently lots of tweaking options available, but may not need to use them much.
Among other accomplishments, wife has been a professional artist, so is really picky about color rendition. And she's happy.
Lots of features not used yet, but WiFi and ability to go online (see YouTube videos, etc,) is awesome.
Remote control and menus work well. Reviews on older versions of built-in Android software were not great but this version works well and smoothly. It's also updateable, I need to review this.
In addition to the basic instruction manual, Sony has a more extensive online manual, very worth checking out to use all the many features this thing has. (I used Windows 10 print function to print the whole thing. Pretty big but I filed it in a manual notebook (where I keep TV receipt, manuals, other paperwork), very handy way to browse and explore the TV's many features.).
I know that there is newer version ("H") in process of being rolled out but this version is so good (and highly rated on many review sites, I checked lots of them), AND reasonably priced as it's "last year's model", it is a wonderful thing to have during our "lockdown"!
(If our finances ever allow it in the future, **wish wish** we will move this to the bedroom and get a 75 or 85 incher version of this dude.)
Now we need to get a 4K UHD Blu-Ray DVD player to see its very best picture, but our current cable really looks great as is, current Blu-Ray DVD player looks really good too so no real rush.
Sound is good but have to replace our failed receiver, will then use external sound system, which honestly no TV's built-in sound system could ever match. Comparison is only reason rated sound as "good" - I think the sound is really as good as any built-in system could be.

Issues with apps....
I bought this TV recently and had issues with apps not working and freezing. I finally figured out how to perform a complete reset of the TV and since then I haven't had the issues anymore. Hoping the issues have been resolved but I guess only time will tell for sure if they have. I heard good things about this product but for being my first Sony TV I cannot say I'm impressed. Maybe I should have gone with a Samsung....

Very good picture and features. Somewhat complex smart TV features / functions.
However, I purchased the Sony HT-Z9F at the same time and I not real happy with how they play together. Intermittent sound loss, having to power reset the bar. So I don’t know if it is an issue with the tv or soundbar, but you asked?
Lastly the legs are a little to far apart, which created issues with placement on furniture.
