Kacey Baker says:

Can anyone tell me if you can switch this back to 60 Hz? Great tv but that video look is so distracting and ugly yo watch.

John B. Comerford says:

This review is completely lacking in facts. This T.V. barely makes HDR specs, and even then only does so under Sony’s pretty awful HDR-10 (done by update, btw, not by native hardware capability). This T.V.’s soap opera effect has been intentionally reduced, and loses a lot in verasimilitude of picture because the phony HDR isn’t good enough to compensate. Additionally this T.V. also has a lot of edge aliasung and motion blur, more than my KDL series 1080p had, and more than enough to take you out of any content you’ll watch on it.

In short, while the android features are cool, the X850D’s panel is an epic failiure that barely makes the minimum performance specs for UHD, and only then by 4k and not by HDR contrast.

Sony should be ashamed of this set, and after owning the 55′ model for 6 months now, I sincerely wouldnt thrust this set upon anyone because of the HDR lie, aliasing and motion blu that accompany the set. My model and panel were purchased in 2016, and have the 2015 – 2016 panel build according to the system specs.

toobalkain says:

This TV has none of the three key technologies; no HDR (not hardware anyway), no local dimming and it’s not a Super UHD panel. For about the same money one can get LG OLED B6, albeit 55″ or a 65″ Samsung KS8000, both of which have everything in terms of tech and much better OS, webOS in LG and Tizen in Samsung are far superior to android TV. It’s not bad tv, just not top tv and for this price it should be, it’s not good value for money. 930 is a whole different story but 850, forget about it unless you’re a die-hard Sony fan.

Air Supply says:

Honey kaibarta says:

does it work as a monitor

Whoshotmyrifle says:

This TV was on sale on Amazon for £550 today on prime day! I’m literally stabbing myself because I didn’t go for it and now the price has shot up!

Diy Guy says:

The quality of these new sets with 4K is amazing – like being on the set as they are filming. Of course if the set is sketchy you now get to see that too. Definitely puts even more pressure for tv shows to have high production values.
