The Sony X90K is less expensive and offers more stand positioning options which may be useful for different furniture configurations. Conversely, the Sony X90L, while slightly more expensive, includes voice command functionality and generally has better picture and sound quality. If you have a bright room, the X90L with its slightly better brightness would be more beneficial, but for a darker room or if budget is a concern, the X90K is still a robust choice. Give Feedback

Al Griffin | December 2022
"As Sony’s next-to-flagship LCD TV, the X90K series delivers impressive performance for the price. The XR90K had fairly accurate out-of-box color. The TV’s multi-position stand lets you either set the screen flush with any stand its mounted on or elevate it to clear space for a soundbar. With the latter option, you get around 3 inches of clearance enough to accommodate most soundbars. The X90K’s excellent suite of gaming features ranks it up there with the best 120 Hz 4K TVs."
