If you're looking for a budget-friendly option, the Amazon 4-Series (LCD) is less expensive but offers moderate performance across various content types and is less suitable for gaming or bright room viewing. On the other hand, the Sony X93L (LCD) is at a premium price but delivers superior picture quality and is especially well-suited for sports, gaming, and well-lit environments. It also has better sound quality and more advanced features like higher refresh rate and local dimming, which enhance the viewing experience. If cost is less of a concern and you're interested in high performance for a range of content in any room conditions, the Sony X93L would be the more compelling choice. Give Feedback

Tech Advisor

Jim Martin | May 2023
"The attraction here is that the 4-Series uses Amazon’s Fire TV interface. Picture quality is good but unexceptional. At the discounted prices, which can seemingly be had regularly, they are better value."

About Amazon

Amazon, the largest online retailer in North America, has forged partnerships with TCL and Hisense to produce white-label TVs incorporating their Fire OS software. These Amazon-branded TVs typically compete in the low-end and mid-range segments, offering compelling price points. Leveraging their strong reputation, Amazon has swiftly built brand trust in the TV market despite being relatively new to it. To enhance their popularity, these TVs integrate features from the Amazon ecosystem, including Alexa, providing users with a seamless and interconnected TV experience.

About Sony

Sony stands as a highly experienced and widely trusted TV manufacturer, earning a reputation that surpasses all others. A Japanese company, Sony has been making TVs for far longs than it has been making Playstation game consoles. Sony's high-end TVs are often regarded as the ultimate choice for videophiles, representing the epitome of quality, albeit at a premium price point. Renowned for their advanced and precise motion handling, as well as their cutting-edge local dimming algorithms, Sony consistently delivers unparalleled performance in these areas. They include Google TV software with all their TV sets, which grants access to the largest selection of apps available and they also include Bravia Core which is a movie streaming platform specifically for Sony TVs that offers higher picture quality by using more bandwidth.
