Sony XBR-55X850A

4K: The second generation

Sony's first-generation 4K TVs demonstrated how exciting this new hyper-realistic viewing experience could be. The 55" XBR-55X850A is part of their second-generation family of 4K sets. This new model is much sleeker and slimmer, but what matters most is the picture, of course, and this new XBR delivers the spectacular detail we expect from Ultra High Definition TV.

Ultra HD can enhance the quality of everything you watch, with a screen that has four times the resolution of a regular "full HD" 1080p TV. Sony teams this 4K screen technology with their unique TRILUMINOS LED backlighting, which provides more depth and shades of color than you've probably ever seen before.

Sony does 4K from "lens to living room"

The XBR-55X850A's screen contains over 8 million pixels (3,840 x 2,160) — the higher pixel density is easily visible. Equally important to the overall viewing experience is Sony's 4K expertise, which extends from "lens to living room." They build professional 4K cameras and cinema projectors, and Sony Pictures has a bigger catalog of 4K films than any other studio. This end-to-end approach helps ensure that XBR owners can have a truly theater-like experience at home.

4K X-Reality™ Pro delivers state-of-the-art upconversion

This 4K X-Reality™ Pro chip enhances picture quality by analyzing and correcting images, resulting in impressively natural detail and color. You'll see the benefits of X-Reality Pro on everything from Blu-ray discs to Netflix® movies to video clips from your smartphone. X-Reality Pro enhances detail and reduces video noise by drawing on a database of real patterns, shapes and textures to display a startlingly lifelike picture.

Unique to Sony, TRILUMINOS Display technology creates incredibly true, natural shades of colors; just the way you want them.

24pTrue Cinema (24p Input Capability): Many movies are filmed at 24 frames per second (fps) and prime time TV programs are video taped at 24p.

  • 2D-to-3D Conversion: To ensure that you can enjoy 3D any time you want, Sony has incorporated 2D-to-3D conversion, which allows you to watch your favorite 2D movies, TV programs, or games in virtual 3D.
  • SimulView Gaming: SimulView gaming presents two different Full HD pictures at once on the LED-LCD TV, making it so each player sees only their unique point of view across the entire screen while wearing the included Active 3D glasses.

Great product

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Worked perfectly out of the box . I did not like some of the default settings, such as function pass through on the HDMI control to remote units,. This was initially confusing, but easily corrected once understood. The most beautiful picture I have ever seen on a TV!!

Pros: Works great out of the box Beautiful picture

Sony 55in 4k tv

Written By Anonymous, Steve on Wednesday, January 29, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Excellent picture, seamless integration with sony receiver and 4k media player, as well as with Xbox one. Rf remote is a plus and smart tv apps are numerous and varied.

Pros: Rf remote Xbox one compatible

Cons: Ir remote detector is bottom center of TV. Right where many would put a center channel speaker, kinetic or other device...should be at the top

You get what you pay for . . . Excellence

Written By Ed D, Oklahoma City, Ok on Thursday, January 09, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought this TV, at this time, specifically for PC gaming at 4K resolutions. The Ports are HDMI 2.0 and it does have an ethernet port for automatic updates, which go flawlessly thus far. The picture is razor sharp and easily keeps pace with the games that I play; RPG, FPS and Strategy. Where some power gamers might have issue, at this time, is that fact that you can't play games in 60Hz at 4K resolution. This is not because of the TV's limitations, but because of what the current generation graphics card can put out. The next series - Geforce 8's and the Radeon x300's will most likely address that with HDMI 2.0 output. It is an excellent buy and a far better buy than the cheaper "Unknown" brands (Namely the Chinese ones you can get from Amazon).

Pros: Picture quality, when connected to the internet - almost completely automated updates (You simply have to agree to update), excellent sound

Cons: Only from the Cable company. . . no 4K programming just yet. Too be fair, it is fairly new technology though

Written By Jeff L, Denville, NJ on Sunday, December 29, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Bought this as an upgrade for my Sony Bravia KDL-52EX700 (now my fourth Sony) . Old TV was good but this one is exceptional. Picture is excellent, no lag when scene gets busy. 3D is really cool. Bass settings work well right out of the box and there are still many configuration options.

Pros: Awesome picture. Built in Netflix supports eventual 4k content. WIFI supports IPv6, plenty of online content. Already had one software upgrade since I got it.

Cons: None yet.

Sony, no baloney

Written By Anonymous, Milwaukee, WI on Tuesday, December 10, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great TV even without 4K content. That will come, but in the meantime for the now reasonable difference in price over and above the state of the art HD units it is worth it not to have an obsoleted TV in a matter of months or a very few years. Will be using it for viewing photos. This our 10th Sony ranging from 8" to this 55" one, starting with a KV1201 in 1973, which still is operable. The last four are in use, perhaps not each daily, but "in service", all LCD technology and all have no issues.

Above and beyond my enthusiasm for Sony, I must say that Crutchfield customer service is amazing. This TV had a slight defect, and upon notification a replacement was immediately sent which arrived two days later, and the offending unit taken away.

Pros: Picture quality great out of the box, and ample ways to "improve" if I ever get to it. Stylish and has feel of high quality. 18month warranty. Numerous 'apps' and free N'flix/Hulu+ for one year.

Cons: Perhaps lack of RCA output for sound, for hookup to an old receiver/amplifier. Fortunately the optical audio out works very well. Heavy!, but nothing like the 200# XBR CRT model we once had! Lack of app for "flickR".

Homerun!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I wasn't very sure about 4K tvs until I recieved this one. Amazing clarity! My personal photos taken with my digital camera look as if I were there again. The 1080P upscale for cable programs looks great too! I have to say that Sony builds great tvs. The XBR series are always pricey, but well worth the amazing quality you get.

Pros: Lots of features, great picture

Cons: Pricey

4k- Worth more than a Look

Written By steve1a, Berkeley, California on Wednesday, November 13, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great crystal clear picture. Easy set up. Factory settings are near perfect. 4k content looks amazing.4 pair of (active) 3D glasses included. With a few DIRECTV 3D channels at hand and more and more titles coming out on 3Dbluray it is nice to be ready to take advantage of this bonus.

Pros: It's a Sony- sharp crystal clear picture and above average sound from the set.

Cons: A bit pricey but worth it-

I believe the speakers are on the bottom. They sound great [ MATTHEW  Dec 15, 2013 ]
Bottom edge of frame [ Michael  Dec 15, 2013 ]
The speakers are facing down on the right and left , through grills or multiple holes about 8" wide and an inch or so deep, toward the edge of the back of the set. The TV is "thicker" or deeper at the bottom, and is much thinner above the first few inches. They sound good for what they are, and of course easy enough to enhance with auxiliary speakers/amps etc. I am glad you asked because I had not troubled to look and wondered :-) [ ERIK  Dec 15, 2013 ]
As yet unpacked. MS [ MARTIN  Dec 15, 2013 ]
