The Sony X95K is a premium LCD TV with exceptional performance in bright rooms, making it well-suited for environments with a lot of ambient light. It displays a wide color gamut and has excellent contrast, which translates to vibrant colors and deep blacks. For gaming, it offers a very good experience with its 120Hz refresh rate and low input lag, ideal for fast-paced action. The TV is also well-received for sports viewing, thanks to superb motion processing capabilities. The X95K's sound quality is among the best, which could eliminate the need for an external sound system. Though it excels in many areas, its high price could be a significant consideration, and its viewing angle is somewhat limited, so it may not be the best choice if you have a wide seating arrangement. Additionally, while it performs very well for movies and series, the upscaling and gray uniformity are just good, so some imperfection might be noticeable when watching lower resolution content or in scenes with large areas of uniform color.

Ratings by Category

Bright Room:
4.9
The Sony X95K excels in bright rooms due to its excellent SDR and HDR brightness, which ensures that the picture remains vivid and clear even in well-lit conditions. Additionally, it has a very good reflections handling capability, meaning it can minimize glare from windows or lights, preserving image quality.
News, Talk & Reality TV:
4.8
The Sony X95K excels in upscaling lower-resolution content, making it ideal for watching regular broadcast news and shows, and its impressive SDR brightness ensures clear images even in well-lit rooms. Meanwhile, colors appear vibrant and accurate right from the start, which enhances the viewing experience without the need for additional calibration.
Cartoons & Animaton:
4.6
The Sony X95K is excellent for cartoons and animation because it displays accurate colors straight out of the box, enabling vibrant and true-to-life animation visuals. Additionally, its color gamut and color volume are graded as good, meaning it can reproduce a wide range of colors necessary for the varied and dynamic hues often found in animated content.
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
PerfectRec’s movies & cinematic TV score takes into account the most important TV features for cinematic content. Our score considers the following factors:color gamut, color volume, out-of-the-box color accuracy, local dimming and black uniformity. We also factor in gray uniformity and viewing angles to a lesser degree.
Sports:
4.4
PerfectRec’s sports score prioritizes response time and refresh rate as the most important factors to ensure clear images of fast-moving scenes. In addition, we consider gray uniformity, which ensures that the turf looks the same across the whole screen, reflections, to avoid distracting ambient light from the action, and viewing angles and brightness, to avoid color distortion and washed-out images, especially when not seated directly in front of the TV.
Overall Picture:
4.4
The Sony X95K excels in picture quality due to its high contrast and effective local dimming which enhances HDR brightness, and also boasts very good color performance straight out of the box, wide color gamut, and color volume, ensuring vibrant and accurate picture reproduction across different content.
