Sony ZF9 (KD-65ZF9) hands on review: price, release date and a first look at this monster of an LED LCD 4K HDR TV


Sony's latest big screen LED is evolution, not revolution – this premium full array LED LCD bows out of the nit-race but still wants to woo cinephiles

High precision direct LED backlight is the business ; X1 Ultimate image processor works wonders ; Android Oreo TV OS looks much improved

Limited black level performance ; Not the brightest HDR performer in its class

Sony Master Series XBR-65Z9F


Sony's Master Series Z9F LCD TV has a remarkably bright picture and the convenience of hands-free Google Assistant voice control, for a premium price.

Bright picture with strong contrast. Wide color gamut. Android TV with hands-free Google Assistant.

Yellows are very warm out of the box. Clunky, dated remote. Some light bloom.

Bottom Line: Sony's Master Series Z9F LCD TV has a remarkably bright picture and the convenience of hands-free Google Assistant voice control, for a premium price.

Sony Bravia Z9F (XBR-65Z9F) review


Not quite the sequel we'd hoped for

Bright, colorful HDR pictures ; Excellent video processing ; More affordable than expected ; Wide viewing angle support

Backlight clouding issues ; Contrast not the best ; Vocal playback issues ; Requires careful set up

Sony's Z9F LCD is a dizzying mix of delight and disappointment. On one hand, Sony’s new X1 Ultimate processor is terrific, delivering numerous subtle but cumulatively outstanding improvements to TV picture quality. On the other, though, the Z9F...

Sony Z9F TV


The Sony MASTER Series Z9F is a very good 4k VA TV. It produces great picture quality, and it is the brightest TV we have reviewed so far. Sony's new X-Wide Viewing Angle system delivers wider viewing angles than typically found on VA panels, but...

Extraordinarily bright in SDR and HDR ; Excellent low input lag ; Great local dimming feature

Disappointing contrast ratio

Sony XBR-65Z9F LCD Ultra HDTV Review


Sony's Master Series Z9F LCD makes a strong claim for top-dog status in today's Ultra HDTV market. It produces superb images, with enhanced off-center viewing so all guests will be happy at your next Super Bowl party. What if you were to ask the...

Impressive HDR brightness; Excellent black level and shadow detail; Superior off-center viewing angle for LCD

Some backlight blooming artifacts; Unimpressive built-in sound

Test Sony KD-65ZF9, l'incroyable luminosité de ce téléviseur LCD sublime tous vos contenus


Sony réalise une nouvelle fois une télé qui fait la différence. D'abord par la très haute luminosité de la dalle, mais aussi par la puissance du processeur X1 Ultimate qui réalise un très bon travail dans le traitement des sources.

La haute luminosité ; Le taux de contraste satisfaisant ; La qualité d'image

La télécommande qui n'évolue pas ; Le prix

Ce Sony KD-65ZF9 est sans aucun doute l'un des meilleurs téléviseurs LCD du moment. Dans ce format 65 pouces, il reste certes d'un prix encore assez élevé, mais les progrès réalisés par Sony sur cette technologie de dalle aboutissent ici à une image...

Sony KD-65ZF9 im Test: Ein wahrer Meister - PC Magazin


Vor zwei Jahren brachte Sony die TV-Legende ZD9 auf den Markt und stellte durch Local Dimming in über 1.000 Zonen und 2.000 Nits an HDR-Gewalt alles Dagewesene in den Schatten. Letztes Jahr kam kein würdiger Nachfolger, doch nun tritt der Sony KD65ZF9...

Android Oreo ; Sehr brillant ; Sprachsteuerung

Dünner Klang

video-Testurteil: sehr gut (888 von 1005 Punkte), Preis/ Leistung: überragend; video HIGHLIGHT

TEST: Sony KD-75ZF9 - Lander på kulen | Lyd & Bilde


Sonys største og beste LCD-TV, Sony KD-75ZF9, er en litt rar sammensetting. På papiret er dette en premium-modell i Sonys eminente ”MASTER series”, som skaper forventninger om gjennomarbeidet og utsøkt kvalitet i alle ledd.

Sony-skjermen leverer imponerende bildekvalitet med råsterk kontrast, blendende lysstyrke og glatte bevegelser. Den nye Android-plattformen gir kraftig forbedret brukervennlighet.

Den slanke lyden står overhodet ikke i stil med den fete bildeopplevelsen. Her MÅ du medberegne innkjøp av lydplanke eller surroundanlegg.

Sony KD-65ZF9 (Test) – audiovision


Kalibrierter Netflix-Modus und der bisher leistungsstärkste Bildprozessor: Im LCD-Fernseher KD-65ZF9 setzt Sony auf zahlreiche Innovationen und bietet zudem ein deutlich höheres Bedientempo für Android. Sonys neuer X1 Ultimate Prozessor feiert im knapp...

Mit seiner ausgezeichneten Blickwinkelstabilität setzt der KD-65ZF9 neue Maßstäbe für einen LCD-Fernseher. Neben der hohen Leuchtkraft gefällt der Sony vor allem durch sein spürbar flotteres Android-Betriebssystem. Schwarz ist nicht extrem dunkel, aber...
