Ratings by Category

Movies & TV shows:
5.0
The Sony A95L excels in providing deep blacks and high contrast which is essential for movie and cinematic TV, delivering true-to-life images and making dark scenes more authentic. Furthermore, the TV also offers exceptional black uniformity, ensuring that uniform dark scenes, like those frequently found in movies, appear evenly black across the screen without distracting blotches or variations in brightness.
Gaming:
5.0
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.
Sports:
5.0
The Sony A95L excels in sports watching because it has a top-notch response time and superior motion processing, ensuring fast action is seen with clarity and minimal motion blur. Additionally, its wide viewing angles and best reflections handling make it ideal for group viewing in rooms with varying light conditions.
News, Talk & Reality TV:
5.0
The Sony A95L OLED excels in upscaling lower resolution content, which is crucial for watching regular TV programs and news that may not be broadcast in high definition. Moreover, its ability to display vibrant and accurate colors straight out of the box, combined with excellent contrast and very good SDR brightness, ensures that the picture quality is consistently clear and detailed.
Cartoons & Animaton:
5.0
The Sony A95L is exceptional for watching cartoons and animation due to its top-notch colors straight out of the box and an outstanding color gamut, providing vibrant and accurate colors for animated content. Though other aspects like color volume and SDR brightness are also relevant and perform well, these features specifically ensure that animations look vivid and true to the creators' intent.
Overall Picture:
5.0
The Sony A95L reaches perfect contrast levels and has excellent black uniformity, making it excellent for watching dark scenes in movies. Additionally, with the best scores for both colors out of the box and color volume, the A95L displays vibrant, true-to-life colors across a wide spectrum without the need for calibration.
Bright Room:
4.7
The Sony A95L OLED TV performs well in bright rooms due to its very good SDR and HDR brightness, which ensures that the picture remains vibrant and clear even in well-lit environments. Additionally, its superior reflections handling minimizes glare from ambient lighting, preserving picture quality from different angles.
