Ratings by Category

Bright Room:
4.9
The Sony X93L performs excellently in bright rooms due to its ability to emit high levels of brightness for both standard and high dynamic range content, ensuring that the picture remains visible even under strong ambient light. Additionally, it has very good reflection handling, meaning it can significantly reduce the intensity of any glare from light sources in the room.
News, Talk & Reality TV:
4.7
The Sony X93L excels in upscaling lower resolution content and offers excellent SDR brightness, which means it will make news, talk shows, and other standard TV programs look sharp and clear, even if the content isn't in high definition. It also performs well right out of the box with colors and has a decent color gamut and local dimming, enhancing the overall picture quality without the need for immediate calibration.
Cartoons & Animaton:
4.6
The Sony X93L displays cartoons and animation well due to the TV's ability to show vibrant and accurate colors as soon as it's turned on. Its color gamut and volume are also adequate, ensuring that a wide range of colors are represented with depth and consistency across various shades.
Gaming:
4.5
PerfectRec’s gaming score measures a TV's performance when it comes to playing video games. It is based on several factors that can significantly impact the quality of the gaming experience, including screen response time, input lag, and refresh rate. Screen response time is a critical factor that determines how quickly the TV can transition from one color to the next, while input lag measures the delay between the gaming console output and the TV display. Refresh rate refers to the number of times per second that the TV displays a new frame, which can impact the smoothness of the gaming experience. The gaming score also takes into account two other features: local dimming in gaming mode, which can enhance contrast and picture quality, and black frame insertion, which can reduce screen brightness and create a smoother gaming experience.
Movies & TV shows:
4.4
The Sony X93L is well-suited for movies and cinematic TV due to its excellent contrast and effective local dimming, which produce deep blacks, adding to a rich viewing experience in dark scenes. However, its limitation lies in a narrower viewing angle, so the picture might not be as good from off-centered positions, and in rooms with wide seating arrangements, some viewers may experience a slight degradation in image quality.
Sports:
4.4
The Sony X93L stands out for watching sports due to its excellent motion processing, which keeps fast action smooth and clear. Its very good response time ensures that there's minimal blur behind moving objects, which is crucial for fast-paced sports viewing.
Overall Picture:
4.4
The Sony X93L displays excellent picture quality with its strong contrast and efficient local dimming enhancing HDR brightness and delivering deep blacks, which is reinforced by good black uniformity ensuring a consistent image. Additionally, out-of-the-box colors are accurate, and with a wide color gamut and high color volume, the TV reproduces a broad spectrum of vibrant and true-to-life colors.
