The Sony X95J is an LCD TV with an LED backlight and comes with a price that is upper midrange. It performs well across various content types with very good overall picture quality. It delivers an excellent experience for bright rooms, making it suitable if your space is well-lit. Its performance in dark rooms is equally robust. For watching movies, sports, or news, and for gaming, this TV is highly capable. With HDMI ports supporting 4K at 120Hz, it's a strong choice for next-gen gaming consoles. The TV also features great speakers and provides flexibility in stand placement that can accommodate a soundbar. However, it may not offer the best viewing angles, so it's not ideal for wide seating arrangements. Give Feedback

Ratings by Category

Bright Room:
The Sony X95J shines in bright rooms due to its excellent SDR and HDR brightness, which means it can produce bright images that combat glare. Additionally, it handles reflections very well, helping maintain picture clarity even in well-lit environments.
News, Talk & Reality TV:
PerfectRec’s news, talk, & other TV score prioritizes upscaling, brightness, contrast, out of the box color accuracy, and screen uniformity. This is because almost all news and talk shows are created in Standard Dynamic Range (SDR) with lower resolutions, such as 720P and 1080P. The purpose of this prioritization is to ensure that lower resolution content looks good on a 4K display and to help you identify which TV will perform best when watching live TV via Cable, Satellite, or Antenna.
Cartoons & Animaton:
PerfectRec’s cartoons & animation score places great importance on several crucial aspects of TV picture quality, such as color gamut, color volume, brightness, and out-of-the-box color accuracy, in addition to good gray uniformity and contrast, to ensure that you can fully enjoy your favorite animated content. Cartoons and animation are characterized by vibrant and colorful imagery, however, accurately displaying this type of content can pose a challenge for TVs, particularly during scenes with complex lighting or subtle color variations.
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:
The Sony X95J is excellent for watching movies and cinematic TV due to its high contrast and efficient local dimming, which create deep blacks and enhance the overall picture quality in dark scenes. Although its gray uniformity is somewhat weaker, and viewing angles are limited, the accurate colors right out of the box and satisfactory black uniformity still make it a strong choice for a cinematic experience.
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:
The Sony X95J (LCD) provides very good picture quality due to its high contrast ratio and effective local dimming feature which enhance deep blacks and bright highlights, particularly beneficial for HDR content. Additionally, the TV's accurate colors out of the box, wide color gamut, and strong color volume contribute to vibrant and true-to-life images.
