Our take on the Sony XBR-75X850E

If you're shopping for a 75" 4K LCD TV, be sure to pay attention to the video processing. Screens this large require advanced blur reduction to keep moving images smooth and clear, and powerful processing to keep all your video sources looking clean and noise-free. The XBR-75X850E is the lowest-priced 75" model in Sony's 2017 4K TV lineup to use some of their best processing.

Sony XBR-75X850E

Big screens need strong video processing

If you're shopping for a 75" 4K LCD TV, be sure to pay attention to the video processing. Screens this large require advanced blur reduction to keep moving images smooth and clear, and powerful processing to keep all your video sources looking clean and noise-free. The XBR-75X850E is the lowest-priced 75" model in Sony's 2017 4K TV lineup to use some of their best processing.

The '75X850E also combines 4K resolution with HDR (High Dynamic Range). HDR is one of the biggest advances in TV technology in years, and you don't have to sit close to the screen to appreciate the more intense colors and realistic contrast. You'll find that nearly all Ultra HD Blu-ray titles are encoded with HDR, as is a growing amount of streamed 4K content from services like Netflix®, Amazon Instant Video, and Vudu.

4K technology makes everything look better

News flash: You don't need 4K content to enjoy a terrific picture on a Sony 4K TV. Based on ten years' experience upscaling movies to 4K in movie theaters around the world, Sony has developed a processor so advanced it can upscale HD content to near-4K quality. This 4K X-Reality™ PRO chip visibly improves detail and color on everything from Blu-ray discs to video games to streamed movies and shows.

Sony's latest TRILUMINOS™ Display system excels at reproducing reds, greens and blues — colors that are notoriously difficult for TVs to display accurately. It also displays skin tones beautifully, thanks to its extensive color palette and precise gradation. And Sony's Motionflow™ XR 960 with 120Hz refresh rate is still one of the best blur-reduction technologies around. Even fast action sports look fluid and crisp.

Smart technology with familiar features

The built-in Android™ operating system lets this TV operate a lot like a smartphone. Log in with your Google ID to access a huge collection of apps, games, movies, and other content from Google Play. Or use Google Cast (now called Chromecast built-in) to stream movies, pictures, and TV shows from your iOS® or Android-based phone, or from a laptop. The remote's voice control feature lets you access movies, shows, and apps, simply by talking.

    Amazing picture. I have this unit placed in a large room (mounted on wall) and it looks stunning. And while I occasionally use a soundbar/powered subwoofer with it, the sound on its own is really good.

    Well worth the money. Fantastic TV loaded full of features. Great alternative 4k TV for those who don't have the budget for the 900 or the 940 models. Crutchfield is always fantastic to work with and shipping is always so fast.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    after reading reviews about The Crutchfield Team, i was very impressed with the company, so i called and spoke to the team about purchasing a 75 inch tv, i had it down to two TV's i liked and could not decide what the better option was, long story short i purchased the Sony XBR-75X850E after speaking with the product expert.he also informed me about the scratch and dent option which was cheaper and guaranteed everything worked and the scratch and dent was not on the screen. i purchased the scratch and dent and to this day i can not find the scratch or dent, i got the best price form Crutchfield no local store or web price could come close. TV arrived in 3 to 5 days as promised, in perfect condition with all the original parts. I called back after setting it up to ask a few questions and to see really how the customer service was after the purchase and sure enough i called and they picked up the phone right away and spoke to a expert, it was great i was impressed. I have had the tv for a couple of weeks and it is awesome a great picture has tons of features no problems very happy with this purchase

    Pros: great picture, 120 hz , wireless, easy setup love it so far

    Cons: none at this moment

    Great Picture, Delvery, and Packaging. Setup is a bit time consuming

    Jan from CA on 2/4/2018

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    TV arrived via freight shipping. UPS freight called and setup a 2 hour window and then helped carry the TV into my living room. (Great service). The box was dirty (don't put it on your carpet) but we'll designed. It came apart so I could leave it in the box while getting all the parts and prepared the wall mount. My wife helped me lift it up and onto the wall. Powered it on, and the setup was OK, BUT it could not discover my Google Home and switched me to a manual setup mode. I still have to tinker with it to get it all working together. Android TV is impressive but after a week I still at the beginning of my learning curve. Lots of menus and apps, including more apps you can download and setup via the built in Google Play store.

    Pros: Picture Packaging Delivery

    Cons: Setup

    Good value, if you don't mind bleed through...

    Justin from Waxhaw, NC on 1/29/2018

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    This TV has an excellent picture and at this price, it's solid value for the size, features, quality and that it's a Sony. That said, it's size is also its downfall because of the employed backlighting technology: This is an edge-lit unit, which means the dimming (that produce critical blacks) is global. The result is, anytime you're watching a dark program, or something in letterbox, or perhaps a video game (which I do not), you will have noticeable light "bleed through" in all four corners. Back to my first comment - while this may be good value, seeing this on my $2000 television is aggravating to say the least! I wish I had spent the extra $500 for the 900E with local dimming. More than that, I wish one of the three or four advisors I spoke with would have let me know of this; at least one did make sure I wasn't going to be in a bright room... Now in a dark room, I have to contend with this. I'm still within my 60 days and am contemplating what route I will take as the 900E is more than it was when I made the initial purchase. Aaahhh, technology.

    Pros: Price, Quality, Bezel, Size, Sony, Features, Picture quality*

    Cons: *Edge Lighting creates mediocre blacks and bright corners.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Wow! What a picture! As lifelike as possible without being in the set. The picture has a 3D feeling even though it is not a 3D set. All of this with just a basic cable feed. I can't wait to play 4K DVD through a 4K DVD player. Set up was a snap and the package arrived without a scuff. While the sound was promised to just be adequate and a surround sound system recommended, I find that the sound quality directly from the TV is much better than expected.

    Pros: Picture quality Ease of setup Delivery

    Cons: None

    Simply Amazing! Great TV with stunning picture quality for such a large TV, Colors are very natural, sharp picture, slick design and built-in android tv makes it very convenient. I purchased Amazon Fire TV streaming device which I returned as this TV has everything I need. This is awesome Sony TV. I had shortlisted few TVs to buy and I am glad that I picked this TV.

    Pros: Superb picture, slick design, built-in Android TV,

    Cons: So far I have not identified any after using it for 2 months.

    Amazing Picture! Love this TV!

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Amazing TV. I love it, perfect picture. I know everyone talks about OLED, but if this Sony picture is AMAZING! I think the people in the room with me. The size of the TV is perfect for our large wall and it is wonderful. We had a large group over and everyone loved the picture quality and the size. We had a Vizio, and this Sony is 10x the picture quality. Bright colors, blacks and all areas of the screen are clear. No dead pixels. It arrived 3 days after we ordered from Crutchfield. Deliver person was friendly and wanted to make sure I put something on my floors before he brought it into our house, as he was worried the bottom of box could be dirty. Very thoughtful. He waited as I opened up the box and got power to check it over, and was very nice. Helped put the box back on to protect tv, until my installer could come. I am sold on Sony. I don't think I'll ever buy any other brand TV. Now I am thinking of replacing my 45 Vizio with a Sony. The picture on this TV is so eye popping. I did a great deal of research, and everything I read was right on! We watches Jaws, and I felt that fish was going to get me! LOL!

    Pros: Great picture quality, super bright colors, and deep blacks. Amazing!

    Cons: None

    Very pleased with quality/features to price ratio

    Only had the the TV for a week now and its great! More to explore and use but so far no complaints. Well worth the money assuming it will last.

    Pros: Huge, smart tv, great picture, digital tuner, google cast

    Cons: Cant figure out bluetooth communication easily but its still the first week with TV

    Sony does it again...

    This is just another success in the Sony line. I've had Sony's for decades. Each one has succeeded it predecessors with picture quality, durability, esthetics and ease of installation/operation. This model is no different and I will add another as soon as I donate a couple of early day HD models I've thoroughly enjoyed.

    Pros: Picture quality is superb.

    Carol from Wood River Jt, RI on 12/7/2017

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Received it on time as stated. Easy to hang on the wall with the bracket we ordered with it. My husband and I are in our 70's and decided to put the bracket on the wall and then had the kids come over to lift it to the wall mount (for safety for us and the TV). Easy!! Love the big screen picture and picture quality is great. Cox cable connected it for us and we love it.

    Pros: Quality and picture is great

    Cons: None

    Amazing Picture

    Josh from Sherburn, MN on 12/3/2017

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Love the TV. Extremely large, but the picture quality is amazing. Ended up buying a 4k Sony DVD player with it to see the true 4K quality and was not disappointed. It looks like it's 3D because the picture is so good. My only down side, which has nothing to do with the tv, is I currently don't have fast enough internet (live in rural country) so streaming Netflix and Hulu on 6mb internet doesn't look at good as my 60" Samsung. Haven't tested my PS4 yet on this TV, but would buy again. LOVE the features of it basically being a smart phone too. I have android, so worked out perfect with all the extra's you can do. Thought it was really interesting to see google assistant on the remote. Looked around for a long time and contemplated buying a cheaper one that "advertises 4K." Ended up going to a local retailer to see the tv's in person and this TV stood out the most (besides the price) TVs. This is a TRUE 4K TV and you will not be disappointed! Only negative thing I have to say about this tv so far is that I had to take my wall tv mount off and lower it because it the brackets are low on the tv (I only had 1" extra from the fireplace mantel and the ceiling for space for the tv to fit in)

    Pros: Picture Quality True 4K Android Compatible Extra Features Super Fast Start Up Lot's of add on ports Google Assistant Ports on the left-side of the TV

    Cons: Brackets for wall mount are low on the TV Sound quality is okay Too big to handle alone (LOL) Short power cord.

    Have had the TV for a week and it is really great. We have it in a sun room with lots of light coming in during the day and we can see it much clearer then our old DLP. The picture is so clear you feel you can actually reach in. The set up was easy, it walked you through the process. I am still exploring the various settings. It connected quickly with our Sony receiver and the remote controls both. Very pleased with the purchase

    Pros: Brightness, clarity of picture, ease of set-up

    Cons: None at this point

    Overall great tv

    Its a SONY

    Don from Grand Blanc, MI on 8/15/2017

    I didnt buy this from here,as am disabled and if there were any issues it would have been nearly impossible to ship this back etc,but regardless.I have owned this TV for about 6 months now,i stepped up from last years 55" and alls i can say is WOW!!! The picture takes some tweaking to get it to your personal liking-I do find this annoying that on a high end TV everything has to be set to all other high end equipment as they are set at basic defaults-like having to specify that you want the upgraded HDMI performance (i forget what it was in the main menu) but you had to switch it to high quality HDMI cables and output-not enough to know 1 star though-close but not quite.The picture is huge and took a bit to get used to the size,i already had 4k but this seems like such a step up.It syncs perfectly with my Sony 7.2 AVR and their new 4k DVD player (which is 1 of the most impressive products in every aspect from any electronics company that i have seen in a long time) and w/the complete Klipsch RP speaker system-yes the RP 450C,the R 115SW,RP 280Fs and RP 240Ss,the sound and picture are truly theater quality. Very well done Sony,3 of your products,which are also the core components are yours,i am very picky when it comes to my home theater,your receivers have come a long ways over the years,you lost me in that category for a while,but you've made considerable improvements.BUT i have 3 Sony TVs going all the way back to an 8-10 year old 240hz 40" flat screen

    Pros: Picture,size,style--I only use my TV for a picture,i dont use the wifi,or any of the smart functions,so i cant comment on them-but i couldnt ask for a nicer TV,i dont see how the next 1s above this can be that much better to justify the price,this is just beautiful

    Cons: a lighted remote would be nice,i really cant think of any cons-since it was set up it has worked perfectly and has an awesome picture

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    This beast rocks! I have read all the specs for this and while it should not be as good as I think it is, it really is incredible. This is replacing a 7 year old Sony NX800 bought from Costco in 2010 for about $3500 (60inch). I am not a professional, merely a 62 year old glasses wearing individual that likes to watch TV. It handles motion (football, Hall of Fame game), Netflix and Amazon streaming (I can't tell the difference between the streamed 4K UHD and the regular HD upscaled content). The upscaling is so good that I will wait to replace my 1080P OPPO BDP83 for at least a year or two.

    Video Features

    4K HDR: For the ultimate in picture quality, this TV pairs the brilliance of 4K clarity with the brightness, color, and detail of High Dynamic Range (HDR). 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 lifelike picture TVs have ever been able to create, with brilliant highlights and fine detail.

    • Ultra 4K Resolution: See more on TV than ever before with over 8 million individual pixels (3,840 x 2,160) compared to about 2 million (1,920 x 1,080) on your 1080p HDTV. Advanced picture processing also ensures that every single pixel displays images with superb brightness and authentic detail. It's the highest resolution picture Sony has ever produced on a TV.
    • HDR (High Dynamic Range): HDR (High Dynamic Range) reproduces a greater dynamic range of luminosity or brightness levels, bringing greater contrast & wider color spectrum to the screen. This increased contrast reveals the subtle nuances of the image, from detailed blacks and shadows to the brightest whites and colors, plus greater depth. Previously hidden areas of dark shadow and sunlight are now full of clarity and detail. The Sony TV supports two HDR formats - including HDR10 which is the most widely used format and is installed from the factory, plus HLG (Hybrid-Log Gamma) which is designed for over-the-air broadcast and requires an over-the-network firmware update.

    4K X-Reality Pro Upscaler: Sony's  4K X-Reality Pro Upscaler enhances Ultra-HD, HD, and SD images by analyzing and refining images with beautifully natural detail and astounding color. This 4K television upscales your favorite TV shows, DVD and Blu-ray movies, even video-on-demand content, and smartphone videos to Ultra-HD quality. This unique 4K X-Reality PRO picture processing technology upscales every pixel for remarkable clarity. Advanced noise reduction techniques and a special pattern database ensure every scene is full of lifelike detail. One database is used to clean the picture, reducing on-screen noise; the other is used to upscale the resolution, improving clarity; while another database improves color, brightness, and contrast. These three powerful image improvement databases work together, dynamically improving pixels in real time. Each database has tens of thousands of references, amassed from Sony's experience creating content for TV and movies over the years.

    • Upscaling Database: Unique to Sony, 4K X-Reality PRO picture processing upscales every pixel for remarkable clarity. Pixels across multiple frames are analyzed and images sharpened and refined in real time. You will immediately see the detail appear in faces and skin tones.
    • Pattern Database: With 4K X-Reality PRO, patterns in images are compared with patterns stored in a unique database to find the best hue, saturation, and brightness for each pixel. Sony uses the knowledge gained from developing and filming blockbuster movies and TV shows to deliver supremely lifelike detail in everything you watch.
    • Noise Reduction Database: Compressed noise is identified by the database, which includes "before and after" data on what a picture should look like and removes the compressed picture noise. A variety of noise reduction techniques are then used by 4K X-Reality PRO to sharpen and refine images. You'll immediately see how scenes become clearer, smoother, and more natural.

    4K HDR Processor X1: The 4K HDR Processor X1 with Object-based HDR remaster and Super Bit Mapping 4K HDR technology gives pure colors at higher brightness levels for truly natural pictures. See everything you watch come to life with greater depth, detail, and texture.

    • Super Bit Mapping 4K HDR: Super Bit Mapping 4K HDR creates a smoother, more natural picture by minimizing its color banding. With 14-bit powerful signal processing, it breaks up the solid bands of color of an 8-bit or 10-bit source, up-converting to 14-bit equivalent gradation, with 64x more color levels. It delivers graceful reproduction of faces, sunsets, and other areas of subtle color.
    • Object-Based HDR Remaster: By analyzing the objects in each scene individually, Object-based HDR remaster optimizes and enhances color and contrast. It brings everything you watch closer to the quality of HDR. Dark elements get darker, bright elements brighter, and everything in between is more accurately lit, for realism in every scene never-before-possible on our TVs. You'll see contours on mountains, hidden textures on flowers, depth in clouds, and wildlife has the contrast and color of nature, for a more natural and realistic picture on screen

    TRILUMINOS Display: Unique to Sony, a TRILUMINOS Display with its specially developed backlight selectively maps colors across a wider gamut, ensuring subtle colors do not become oversaturated and unnatural. You'll enjoy vivid, authentic images that evoke the emotion in every scene. The more pencils you have to draw an image, the more vibrant and lifelike it becomes. TRILUMINOS Display works in the same way, using a wider color spectrum than a conventional LED-LCD display. A TRILUMINOS Display excels at reproducing reds, greens, and blues; colors that are notoriously difficult for TVs to display accurately. It also displays skin tones beautifully, thanks to its extensive color palette and precise gradation.

    MotionFlow XR 960 Technology: Enjoy smooth and sharp details even in fast-moving sequences with Motionflow XR 960. Sony's MotionFlow XR 960 technology feature a precise backlight control that is synchronized with the liquid crystal movement from frame-to-frame creating clearer, sharper moving images. MotionFlow XR 960 combines 120 frames-per-second with the TV's advanced LED backlight system to simulate a 960 Hz effect. This innovative technology creates and inserts extra frames between the original ones and then compares key visual factors on successive frames, then calculates the split second of missing action in the sequences. MotionFlow XR 960 provides smooth and precise detail during fast-action scenes for fast action movies and sports by reducing blur caused by quick camera movements, enhancing image sharpness, and overall creating a clearer picture. You can select between various settings - Standard, Smooth, Clear, True Cinema (24fps), and Custom. 

    Video Inputs: The Sony Ultra-HD TV is equipped with HDMI 2.0a, Component, and Composite video inputs. A back cover has to be removed to access these video inputs.

      • HDCP 2.2: HDCP 2.2 is supported by all of the TV's HDMI inputs. HDCP 2.2 is short for "High bandwidth Digital Content Protection" and is used for 4K video copyright protection for compatibility with Ultra HD Blu-ray players and 4K Satellite/Cable providers.
      • 4:4:4 Color Subsampling: All four HDMI inputs will support up to 4:4:4 chroma subsampling for full color data rendering of 4K video (30/60fps). 4:2:2 (30/60fps) and 4:2:0 (60fps) are also supported by all HDMI inputs. With 4:4:4 color, luminance (brightness) and chroma (color) are sampled at the same rate, resulting in an RGB color palette as big as the video sampling rate for a video image with more total colors, plus greater color accuracy and detail.
    • Component/Composite: There is one combination analog video input that can be used as a component or composite video input; it shares a single stereo RCA audio input. As a component video input, it will accept 1080p (60Hz), 1080i, 720p, 480p, and 480i signals. As a composite video input, it will support 480i video signals only.

      • Clarity: You can improve the clarity of an image by adjusting the TV's Sharpness, Reality Creation (increases clarity), Resolution (increases detail), and Noise reduction (removes noise).
      • Motion: Activate Sony's Motionflow technology to reduce motion blur and judder. CineMotion provides improved picture movement and reduces picture blur and graininess for film-based content, like Blu-ray & DVD.

    Light Sensor & Advanced Contrast Enhancer (ACE): The TV's built-in Light Sensor automatically adjusts the picture brightness based on the amount of light in the room. As a result, you can enjoy automatic customized picture brightness and save energy without lifting a finger. The televisions Advance Contrast Enhancer (ACE) automatically adjusts backlight and contrast to the most suitable setting judging from the brightness of the screen. This setting is especially effective for dark scenes, and will increase the contrast distinction for the darker picture scenes.

    Live Color Technology: Powered by an image processor using an algorithm specially developed by Sony, Live Color is able to reproduce incredibly vivid colors on screen. With four user-adjustable settings available (High/Medium/Low/Off), you can choose just how vivid you want your images to be. Whether it's a brilliant blue sky or a bright red rose, everything stands out so much more with Live Color.

    Dynamic Contrast Enhancer: The Dynamic Contrast Enhancer optimizes the range of brightness frame-by-frame according to what's happening on screen to reproduce deeper blacks, brighter whites, and more video color.

    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. Seizing on an opportunity, some studios are taking a purist approach and encoding high definition video content such as Blu-ray Disc in 24p. Sony wisely takes advantage of this by including 24p input capability via HDMI on this television producing images that are smooth and natural looking.

    PIP (Picture-in-Picture): Through an over-the-network firmware update, the TV will support PIP (Picture-in-Picture). This feature lets you watch the TV's over-the-air tuner in a small window on-screen, while viewing an Android TV app (like Netflix or Amazon).

    Audio Features

    ARC (Audio Return Channel): The Audio Return Channel within the television's HDMI 3 input enables the TV, via a single HDMI cable, to send audio data "upstream" to an A/V receiver; increasing user flexibility and eliminating the need for any separate S/PDIF audio connection. This feature allows audio to be sent from the television to your A/V receiver through the same HDMI cable already being used to send audio/video to the television. This eliminates the need for extra cables connected to the TV. ARC allows audio from the TV tuner, Network connection, inserted USB device, HDMI inputs, or any analog connected device to be heard through your ARC compatible AV receiver via the television's HDMI ARC input.

    • The audio from the TV's tuner, HDMI inputs, USB ports, and Android TV apps can pass as Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby Digital, DTS, or 2ch PCM.
    • Analog connected & DLNA compliant devices will be output audio at 2ch PCM only.

    Note: Both the television and the receiver must support ARC for this function to work properly. When connecting an AV receiver that is compatible with Audio Return Channel (ARC), connect it to the TV's HDMI 3 input. If connecting a system that is incompatible Audio Return Channel (ARC), an additional audio connection via Digital Audio Out (Optical) is necessary.

    Audio Outputs: The Sony Ultra-HD TV offers analog and digital audio outputs, as well as Bluetooth headphone pairing (firmware update required).

    • Digital Audio (Dolby Digital/DTS): The optical digital output terminal will output Dolby Digital/DTS (when available) or 2 channel PCM. The digital optical output terminal only sends an audio signal in Dolby Digital/DTS when receiving Dolby Digital/DTS surround sound from a digital broadcast channel through the tuner, network apps, HDMI inputs, and USB ports on the TV. The optical digital audio output will only output in 2ch stereo from sources connected to the TV via RCA.
    • Headphone/Analog Output: The TV's 3.5mm analog output can be used to connect a set of headphones or as an audio output to connect your home theater receiver or soundbar system. You will need a minijack-to-RCA adapter (sold separately) to make a stereo RCA connection between the television and your AV receiver. The TV's analog audio output terminal will output 2ch audio from any of the television's source inputs. You can set the TV's analog output to Fixed or Variable. You can set the TV to automatically mute the built-in speakers when a set of headphones are connected.
    • Bluetooth Headphone Pairing (Requires Firmware Update): Through an over-the-network firmware update, the TV will be able to support Bluetooth headphone pairing - allowing you to stream audio from the television's built-in and connected sources to a Bluetooth-enabled set of headphones (only one set of headphones can be paired - not compatible with Bluetooth speakers). Bluetooth headphone volume level can be controlled from both the TV's remote and headphones.The TV's built-in speakers and audio outputs will be deactivated when streaming audio via Bluetooth.

    S-Force Front Surround: S-Force Front Surround mimics the way the brain correlates sound sources to create proper volume, time lag, and sound wave spectrum; using only left and right speaker channels. By naturally emulating three-dimensional sound fields, you'll enjoy rich, high-fidelity audio across a wider listening area.

    ClearAudio+: ClearAudio+ fine-tunes TV sound for an immersive experience that seems to surround you. Hear music, dialog, and surround effects with greater clarity and separation, whatever you're watching.  

    Digital Sound Enhancement Engine (DSEE): Low-resolution Internet video and other heavily compressed audio files don't always sound so great. A large amount of information gets thrown away when digital audio is compressed. With Digital Sound Enhancement Engine (DSEE) technology, lost frequency components (especially high frequencies) are restored for natural sound with a more spacious feel.

    Clear Phase: Sony uses a powerful computer model to analyze and compensate for inaccuracies in speaker response. It does this by "sampling" the speaker frequency with higher precision. This information is fed back to cancel out any peaks or dips in the speaker's natural response; resulting in pure, natural audio with smooth, even reproduction of all frequencies.

    EQ: The TV offers four EQ preset sound modes - Standard, Cinema, Music, and Live Football. The TV is also equipped with a 7-band EQ (125Hz, 250Hz, 500Hz, 1kHz, 2kHz, 4kHz, 8kHz). You can adjust the level of each band between -12 to +12 dB.

    Mounting Options

    Pedestal Stand: The Sony TV comes with a pedestal stand. The TV is shipped with the pedestal stand unattached. The television weighs 77.6 lbs with the stand attached. This TV does not swivel.

    Optional Wall Mount Brackets: The television can be wall mounted using an optional wall-mount bracket (sold separately). The TV has four threaded screw inserts that are spaced 400mm (h) x 300mm (v) apart. The threaded inserts will accept M6 (6mm) screws. The TV weighs 75.2 lbs without the stand.

    Cable Management: All of your cables can be neatly channeled into the legs of the pedestal stand and up to the back of the TV for a clean, professional looking installation.
