ABOUT THIS TV

Sony XR-85X95K NA 400x400 Image Sony XR-85X95K NA

The XR-85X95K NA is a 85 inch 4K TV from Sony, launched in the year 2022. It comes with a True 10-bit IPS panel with Anti-glare/Matte finish. It can achieve a max resolution of 3840 x 2160 with a refresh rate of 120 Hz and pixel density of 52 ppi.

Picture Quality

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

Sony did not provide a color gamut rating for this TV. But don't worry, we have other means to guess that.

Considering 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 should be Lifelike! Meaning it will produce color accurate images AS IT IS intended.

Understanding Color Gamut

Color gamut specification of a display is a measure of the range of colors that the TV can show.

A TV with poor color accuracy will produce washed out colors that will spoil your immersive experience.

It is specified in different units - sRGB(most popular), NTSC 1953, DCI P3 to name a few.

But you don't need to worry about that, here is a chart that you can use to choose a TV with good color accuracy.

Color Gamut Chart

After color gamut, next in the list that will impact your experience is Static Contrast.

Understanding Static Contrast

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 the below image.

Example of a display with low contrast ratio

As you can imagine, this will impact your experience considerably.

Also note, 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.

However, we couldn't find a static contrast ratio specification for this TV. Once again we have to make an assumption based on the TV's other specifications. Most IPS panels come with a static contrast ratio between 700:1 - 1500:1. As for a 4K TV, we can imagine the ratio would be no less than 1200:1.

Dolby Vision, HDR10 and HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma) are also supported on this TV.

Coming to brightness, it can go as bright as 250 nits. The backlight of this TV is powered by Mini LED technology.

Gaming Performance

If you are planning to use your TV only for content consumption, you can ignore these specifications. But if you are also going to use the TV for playing games or use it as a PC monitor, you would want to take a TV with the lowest input lag and response time.

Unfortunately, there is no specification for input lag on this TV. Now, as this is not a cheap TV from Sony, we can expect an input lag of less than 20ms.

What is Input Lag and Why it matters ?

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

For best of both worlds, get a TV that comes with an input lag and response time of < 20ms.

Dimensions and Ergonomics

The TV extends upto 85 inches (adjustable +2.36 in) vertically and 74.37 inches horizontally. It is 2.2 inches thick.

It weighs around 53.2 kgs, another 1.5 kgs if you include stand. So plan your space accordingly.

Now, speaking of ergonomics — VESA mount is supported on this TV with an interface size of 400 x 400 mm. There is no Swivel, Tilt or Pivot feature support in this TV.

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.

For connecting USB devices, it includes two USB ports. Other connectivity ports include — 1x Cable/Antenna In (F-type female), 1x RS232 (C) and 1x Ethernet RJ45.

Wireless connectivity options on this TV include Wi-Fi (5Ghz + 2.5Ghz), Wifi-Direct, Bluetooth and DLNA.

For audio, it is packaged with 2 x 10W built-in speakers. It also comes with a built-in subwoofer. So you may not have to invest on any external sound system.

Now, coming to power usage, it uses 158.16 watts on average and 0.5 watts on standby.

Both 110V and 220V lines are supported on this unit.
