Sony XBR75X910C 75-Inch 4K Ultra HD 3D Smart LED TV Review

Sony XBR75X910C 75-Inch 4K Ultra HD 3D Smart LED TV Review.

The XBR75X910C is one of the best performing LED TVs currently available. Its stunning picture quality is sure to please most any viewer and performs very well in the key picture factors of image detail, clarity and refined resolution

Overview

The X910C has it all in terms of picture features, Extended Dynamic Range, X1 Processor, and X-Reality Pro up-scaling algorithm, and widened color gamut Triluminous Display technology.

All this combines for a fantastic picture. If you want the same picture quality but more upgraded sound from the TV for wall mounting opt for the X930C which has the side-mounted speakers.

How does the Sony X910C compare with an LG 4K OLED TV? We love OLED technology, so for a 4K UHD signal we give the edge to the LG OLED.

But we believe Sony has the best processing and outer panel of the 4K TVs, so for 1080p and lower signals we believe this TV outperforms the LG 4K OLED.

Performance

The XBR910C’s immersive screen is a joy to watch. This large screen display grabs your attention with a bright, detailed and dynamic picture image.

On-screen 4K images portrayed a very life-like and three-dimensional presentation filled with generous amounts of clarity and fine detail.

For example, a wide shot of an ocean seashore allowed me to see the intricate details and the ripple effect of each wave from an extremely long distance shot.

This shot also allowed me to see the excellent image depth this TV is capable of revealing.

The color performance on this display was quite remarkable. I thoroughly enjoyed the vivid color palette rendered on this TV.

Colors were exceedingly rich and natural in appearance and were presented with accurate shading and very good tonal balance. This combination made for some of the best color reproduction I’ve seen to date.

Picture Quality

This wide-gamut color technology has been fantastic for Sony for a couple years.

It produces much more realism and true-to-life color renditions than most of Sony’s competitors, and in general takes less calibration effort to obtain a proper picture solution.

The X-tended Dynamic Range contrast enhancement technology works well with the Triluminous display to provide incredible light flow through colors and enhance areas of the on-screen picture which are lit by windows or lighting.

This all adds up to a more 3-dimensional picture quality even with HD signals. This is what we want. The colors are not over saturated as they are with some, but they still have plenty of pop and are beautiful.

The outer panel on the X910C is what really sets it apart from the lower 4K Sony’s. It’s also what adds so much to the cost. It creates the depth, richness, and vibrant colors and contrast that make this TV so desirable.

Design/Appearance

Sony does not seem smitten by the curved screen craze from Samsung. I agree with them. What’s the point? Sony’s design elements are simple and straightforward but very attractive.

The X910C has a very thin black ribbon inside the outer panel so there is no indention for the frame (frame-less design.

It only 4.9mm at the thinnest parts of the screen and from side angles it looks credit card slim from the sides

There is an extra inch in the bottom center back to allow for speakers and components. The design is the “floating design” to describe how the stand is supposed to be less visible.

Pros

  • Delivers some of the best picture quality images currently available
  • Sony’s video processing provides excellent for 4K upscaling
  • TRILUMINOS technology helps to deliver outstanding color
  • Deep black levels with good shadow detail
  • Android smart TV platform w/Google Cast built-in

Cons

  • Still expensive
  • No 3D glasses included
  • Some side angle picture image contrast and color saturation loss

Smart TV (Android 9.0)

Like almost every Sony TV these days, the operating system and smart TV interface is a combination of Android (9.0 in this instance) and YouView .

And like every Sony TV that’s running Android, it’s a combination of the really quite useful and the downright irritating.

4K/HDR performance

Every one of the positives concerning the Sony’s HD/SDR performance is amplified and improved by the switch to native 4K content, especially if there’s an HDR element involved too.

Like every Sony 4K HDR TV, the KD-75XH9005 eschews HDR10+ dynamic metadata – because Sony, like many other TV brands, can’t quite bring itself to acknowledge when a rival has had a good idea.

So the XH90 scrapes by with HLG, HDR10 and Dolby Vision HDR compatibility – which is more than sufficient to enjoy the extended colour gamut promised by HDR material from any number of sources.

Sound

All but the 55-inch model in the XH90 range feature Sony’s grand-sounding Acoustic Multi Audio system.

In practice, this equates to 20 watts powering two full-range drivers, and a couple of tweeters positioned near the top of the back of the screen’s chassis, one on either side.

The idea is to offer a degree of sonic tracking to the on-screen motion – it’s a feature both LG and Samsung have, in their own ways, being trying out with some of their more expensive 2020 TVs too.

In practice, the XH90 sounds surprisingly full-bodied and assertive when turning out the Dolby Atmos soundtrack to Da 5 Bloods.

The suggestion that there’s any meaningful correlation between the movement of objects on the screen and the sound the Sony makes is fanciful, but in terms of punch, attack and muscle the XH90 is pretty successful.
