Launched in the year 2022, the XR-75X95K is a 75" 4K TV from Sony. It comes with a True 10-bit IPS panel with Anti-glare/Matte finish. The maximum resolution it can display is 3840 x 2160 @ 120 Hz with a pixel density of 59 ppi.
Now, the next important spec of a display that impacts picture quality is Color Gamut.
This TV doesn't come with a color gamut specification, so we have to take a guess.
Now, since the TV features amassive 75 inch screen, it won't come with a cheap panel, so here we can assume its equivalent sRGB coverage to be 90-100% or above. The color quality on this TV should be Lifelike! It will produce color accurate images by default.
What Color Gamut means ?
Color gamut specification of a display is the measurement of the range of colors that the TV can show.
In layman terms, this specification indicates the ability of a TV to produce accurate colors. A TV with low color 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(most popular), NTSC 1953, DCI P3 Adobe RGB, rec.2020. 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.
Now, next in the list of important specifications is Static Contrast.
What is Static Contrast ratio ?
There are 2 types of contrast specifications for a TV. Static and Dynamic. We are interested in static contrast ratio as dynamic doesn't matter much.
Static contrast specification tells the intensity of black levels. That is, a TV with SC ratio < 1000:1 may produce black images something like this:
Apart from that, such TVs are also prone backlight bleeds that will impact your experience — as shown below.The image is an example of another display, it is not this one
Like resolution, the static contrast ratio is also equally responsible for details. To put it into perspective, a TV with low contrast ratio will produce less shades of colors, thus lesser detail overall.
However, we couldn't find a static contrast ratio specification for this TV. Once again we have to take a guess. In general, IPS panels come with a static contrast ratio between 700:1 - 1500:1. As for a 4K TV, we can guess the ratio of Sony XR-75X95K to be 1200:1 or above.
Dolby Vision, HDR10 and HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma) are also supported on this TV.
Coming to brightness, it is can achieve a maximum luminance of 250 nits. The panel of this TV is powered by Mini LED backlight technology.
If you are planning to use a TV other than watching videos — like as a PC monitor or for gaming purposes, you should take a TV that features the lowest input lag. For gaming, both input lag and response time impacts the performance.
Sadly, we cannot find the input lag specification for this unit. But since this is not a cheap TV from Sony, we can expect an input lag of less than 20ms.
Understanding Input lag and response time
This lag is the latency at which your key-presses/mouse movements changes the content of the TV. For casual Non-FPS games, input lag doesn't matter much.
But ideally, look for a TV that comes with an input lag and response time of < 20ms.
Ergonomics and Dimensions
Coming to ergonomics — If you plan to wall mount the TV, you can make use of the VESA mount provided with this TV, which by the way has an interface size of 300 x 300 mm. However, there is no Swivel, Tilt or Pivot feature support in this TV.
The width of this TV is 65.63 inches while its height is 38.27 inches ( adjustable upto 2.36" ).
It is 2.2 inches thick.
It weighs around 42.7 Kgs, another 1.4 kgs if you include stand. So plan your space accordingly.
Hardware and Audio
For display connectivity, Sony has provided two HDMI 2.0 ports, two HDMI 2.1 ports and one AV Composite In 3.5 mm jack port on this TV.
To connect USB devices, you will have two USB ports. Other connectivity ports include — 1x Satellite In (F-type female), 1x Antenna (RF), 1x CI+ 2.0 and 1x Ethernet RJ45.
For connecting to this TV wirelessly, you will have — a 5Ghz Wi-Fi, 2.5 Ghz Wi-Fi, Wifi-Direct, Bluetooth and DLNA.
The Audio unit of this TV is powered by 2 x 10W speakers. It also comes with a built-in subwoofer. So you don't have to invest on an external sound system.
Now, coming to power usage, it uses 157.2W on average and 0.5W on standby.
Both 110V and 220V outlets are supported on this unit.
