ABOUT THIS TV

Sony XR-85X90K 400x400 Image Sony XR-85X90K

Launched in the year 2022, the XR-85X90K is a 85" 4K TV from Sony. It features a True 10-bit VA panel. The max. resolution it can achieve is 3840 x 2160 @ 120 Hz with a pixel density of 52 ppi.

Picture Quality

Now, the very next feature of a display that defines picture quality is its Color Gamut.

This TV doesn't provide a color gamut specification, but don't worry, we have other means to guess that. Now, since the TV features a big 85 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 will be Lifelike! It will produce accurate colors.

What is Color gamut ?

Color gamut spec of a TV is a measure of the range of colors that it can produce.

A TV with poor color accuracy will produce undersaturated colors that will spoil the immersion.

Different manufacturers use different measurement standards to specify color gamut. Viz — sRGB (standard RGB), NTSC 1953, DCI P3 etc.

But you don't need to worry about that, below is a chart that will help you choosing a TV with good color accuracy.

Color Gamut Chart

After color gamut, the static contrast of a TV similarly impacts its picture quality.

Why its important?

The static contrast ratio of a TV corresponds to its Black levels. A TV with low static contrast ratio (less than 1000:1) will not produce deep blacks. Also, such displays may suffer from backlight bleeds such as this:

Needless to say, this will impact your viewing experience, especially in a dark room.

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 features a static contrast ratio of 8000:1., well enough to achieve deep blacks. The panel comes with local dimming which is a plus.

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. The backlight of this TV is powered by Direct LED (Full-Array Local Dimming) technology.

Gaming Performance

If you are planning to use your TV solely for content consumption, you can ignore these specifications. But if you are also going to use the TV for gaming or use it as a PC monitor, you should get a TV with the lowest input lag and response time.

Unfortunately, Sony did not specify the input lag on this unit. Now, as this is not a cheap TV from Sony, we can expect an input lag of less than 20ms.

What is Input lag ?

This lag is the latency at which key-presses/mouse movements changes the content of the screen. For casual Non-FPS games, input lag doesn't matter much.

Although for better experience, get a TV that features an input lag and response time of < 20ms.

Dimensions and Ergonomics

The width of this TV is 74.84 inches while its height is 44.29 inches ( adjustable upto 1.57 in ). Speaking of thickness, it is 2.87 inches thick.

It weighs 45.8 KGs and an additional 1.7 kgs if you include stand.

Now, coming to ergonomics — a VESA mount with interface size of 400 x 400 mm is provided for wall-mounting. The unit doesn't come with either Swivel, Tilt or Pivot support.

Hardware and Audio

The internals of Sony XR-85X90K is powered by a Quad Core CPU. However, we could'nt find any information about the total available RAM on this TV.

For display connectivity, there are four 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) (female), 1x CI+ 1.4 and 1x Ethernet RJ45.
