The XR-65A95K is a 65 inch 4K TV from Sony, launched in the year 2022. It features a True 10-bit QD-OLED panel. It can display a maximum resolution of 3840 x 2160 @ 120 Hz with a pixel density of 68 ppi.
Now, the very next feature of a display that impacts picture quality is Color Gamut.
This TV doesn't provide a color gamut specification, so we have to make an assumption based on its panel type.considering it comes with an OLED panel, there is no need to worry about color accuracy. Because OLED panels are excellent at producing accurate colors.
What is Color gamut ?
Color gamut spec of a TV is a measure of the range of colors that the display can display.
In other words, it tells the ability of a TV to produce accurate colors. A panel with low gamut coverage will miss out on some colors (such as deep red), so the image produced will look "washed out" in colors.
It is specified in different units - sRGB,sRGB (standard RGB), NTSC 1953, DCI P3 etc. It is upto the manufacturer which one they choose.
But don't worry, below is a chart that will help you choosing a TV with good color accuracy.
After color gamut, next in the list of important specifications that will impact your experience is Static Contrast.
Understanding the static contrast ratio of a TV
A TV with high enough static contrast ratio will produce natural deep blacks while a TV with low contrast ratio (<1000:1) will produce images that might look dusty as shown in below image.
As you can see, this will rob your experience considerably.
Note that, static contrast ratio and resolution go hand in hand when it comes to details. To put it into perspective, a TV with low contrast ratio will show both dark gray and black as black, thus lesser detail overall.
If given a choice, I will prefer a FHD TV with high contrast ratio over a 4K TV with low contrast ratio.
This TV comes with a static contrast ratio of Infinity:1.. So no need to worry about this.
Dolby Vision, HDR10 and HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma) are also supported on this TV.
As for brightness, it can go as bright as 250 nits.
If you are planning to use the TV other than using it as a TV — like as a PC monitor or for gaming purposes, make sure to take a TV that features the lowest input lag. For gaming, both the input lag and response time impacts the performance.
The input lag on the Sony XR-65A95K is 8.5 ms and its minimum response time is 1 ms. Gamers will love this TV.
Understanding Input lag and response time
This lag is the latency at which your key-presses or mouse movements changes the content of the screen. For casual Non-FPS games, input lag doesn't matter much.
But ideally, get a TV that comes with an input lag and response time of less than 20ms.
Dimensions and Ergonomics
The vertical and horizontal measurements of this TV are 56.85 inches and 33.5 inches respectively. Speaking of thickness, it is just 1.69 inches thick. It weighs approximately 27.0 KGs.
