6 Best Sony TVs of 2023

Written by Michael Desjardin

Updated March 14, 2023

Sony makes some of the best TVs on the market, maintaining a premium status it has held since its dominant days of the 1990s. As with any manufacturer, though, some Sony TVs are better than others—that’s where we come in.

If you just want to buy the best Sony TV we’ve tested, check out the Sony A95K
(available at Amazon)

. This ultra-premium quantum dot-enhanced OLED is not only the best Sony TV right now, it’s one of the best TVs we’ve ever tested, delivering incredible picture quality and cutting-edge features.

The A95K comes with a premium price tag, though, so if it’s not in your budget, fret not: there are awesome Sony options across a variety of price brackets.

The A95K is one of the best TVs we’ve ever seen.

Best Overall

Sony A95K

  • Screen sizes: 55″, 65″
  • HDR support: Dolby Vision, HDR10, HLG
  • Smart platform: Google TV

The Sony A95K, the brand’s first attempt at a quantum dot-enhanced OLED TV, offers an absolutely mind-blowing experience. Its picture quality is the best we’ve ever seen, but that excellence comes with a high cost. This TV is one of the most expensive we’ve tested, so it could be a tough sell for most shoppers.

Like all OLED TVs, the A95K delivers perfect black levels and the widest viewing angles money can buy. Unlike OLEDs that struggle with brightness, the A95K delivers one of the brightest pictures we’ve seen from an OLED. As long as it’s not positioned directly in a sunbeam, it’s bright enough for both daytime and nighttime viewing.

The A95K’s colors are staggeringly good, thanks in part to Sony’s quantum dot technology, dubbed Triluminos color. The A95K covers an impressive 100% of the HDR color gamut (DCI-P3), and its colors pop across all content types, be them TV shows, movies, or games. Its ability to properly render skin tones and subtle gradations is impressive. Even during upscaled content, you’re unlikely to notice any color banding.

The A95K’s Google-based smart platform is a great option for everyday streaming—it’s fast, flexible, and relatively easy to use. While the A95K doesn’t offer as much gaming flexibility as some of its high-end competitors, it still offers a decent amount of gaming support for next-gen consoles. Two of the TV’s HDMI 2.1 inputs support 4K gaming at 120Hz (though one also serves as the TV’s eARC-enabled port). The A95K also comes with variable refresh rate, auto low latency mode, and G-Sync compatibility.

Most people will balk at the A95K’s head-spinning price tag, but if you’re looking for the absolute best picture money can buy, look no further.

Other Sony TVs We Tested

Sony A90J

  • Screen sizes: 55”, 65”, 83”
  • HDR: Dolby Vision, HDR10, HLG
  • Smart platform: Google TV

If you don’t mind splashing out on an ultra-premium TV, the Sony A90J is still one of the best OLED TVs we’ve ever tested.

The A90J augments OLED’s deep blacks with excellent highlights, regularly reaching 700 to 800 nits in HDR (high dynamic range). Highlights get even brighter than that in short bursts.

The added brightness elevates the TV’s colors, which are both voluminous and accurate. In fact, the A90J’s HDR color palette covers about 98% of the expanded DCI-P3 color space when the TV is in its “Custom” picture mode.

This Sony is also packed to the gills with features. It includes the Google TV smart platform, replacing Android TV. It has eARC compatibility and support for Dolby Atmos and Dolby Vision. It has a native refresh rate of 120Hz. Its Center Speaker mode lets you use the A90J’s built-in speakers as the center channel of a surround sound setup.

Crucially, two of the A90J’s HDMI 2.1 ports offer Variable Refresh Rate, Auto Low Latency Mode, and support for 4K content at 120Hz. If you want to get the most out of current-gen gaming consoles like the PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X, these features are essential.

If you have the means and want an incredible out-of-the-box TV experience, the A90J is one of the best you’ll find.

  • Incredible contrast and color

  • HDMI 2.1-specified features

  • Zippy, flexible smart platform

Sony A80K

  • Screen sizes: 55″, 65″, 77″
  • HDR support: Dolby Vision, HDR10, HLG
  • Smart platform: Google TV

The Sony A80K is a terrific option for OLED bargain hunters who appreciate the look and feel of a Sony-branded TV.

The A80K has perfect black levels and incredible contrast, especially in a dark setting. OLEDs also are known for wide viewing angles, and the A80K is no exception—no matter where you’re sitting in a room, the picture maintains excellent contrast and color saturation. When it comes to color, the A80K provides a remarkable palette. It covers 99% of the HDR color gamut (DCI-P3) and the picture is impressively calibrated in Sony’s most accurate out-of-the-box picture mode (Custom).

However, if you compare the A80K to other OLED TVs in its price bracket, it loses some luster. It’s not as bright as some, topping out at around 700 nits of brightness when displaying small, concentrated highlights. The LG C2, meanwhile, bumps right up against 800 nits. The Samsung S95B, which includes quantum dots like our favorite Sony, the A95K, even eclipses 1,000 nits. OLED TVs are not the best fit for bright rooms, and the A80K’s picture loses more of its pop during daytime viewing than its competitors.

The A80K does not have as many gaming features as some other competitively priced OLED TVs. While it does feature HDMI 2.1 and all of its benefits (ALLM, VRR, and 4K gaming at 120Hz), only two of the TV’s four inputs support those features, and one of those inputs is the A80K’s dedicated eARC port. All of the inputs on the C2 and the S95B, meanwhile, are HDMI 2. 1. These TVs may not have launched at the same price, but they’re all in the same ballpark now, so it’s worth keeping their differences in mind when shopping.

Nevertheless, the A80K has a sensational picture, a fast, user-friendly smart platform powered by Google TV, and an elegant design. As long as you’re not putting the A80K in a bright room (and you don’t mind missing out on some of the benefits of its competitors), it will serve you well.

Sony X95K

  • Screen sizes: 65”, 75”, 85”
  • HDR: Dolby Vision, HDR10, HLG
  • Smart platform: Google TV

The Sony X95K offers a bright, colorful picture that excels with HDR10 and Dolby Vision content, has a sleek design, and features easy-to-use Google TV. However, its premium price stands out when you consider the features and performance of its competition.

Blending mini-LEDs with quantum dots, the X95K offers plenty of brightness in both SDR and HDR for light and dark settings. Compared to one of its nearest competitors, the Samsung QN90B, it delivers much weaker HDR specular highlights, but slightly better full-field brightness. When you watch HDR content on the X95K, though, colors look well-saturated and very few adjustments are needed out of the out-of-box.

Still, its HDR color gamut coverage doesn’t stand up well with some other Sony TVs on this list. We measured it at about 91% of the wide HDR color space (DCI-P3), which is about on par with the QN90B. That’s lower than we expected, given the X95K’s hardware and brightness capabilities.

Our strongest criticism of the X95K is that it struggles to rein in brightness during scenes where there’s an equal amount of bright and dark picture elements. You can expect severe light bloom when bright and dark picture elements clash, especially when viewing the X95K from an off-axis position. In comparison, the QN90B does a better job limiting light bloom, and the LG C2, which has an OLED panel, doesn’t suffer from any at all. Given its price, the X95K should perform better.

Also, the X95K’s gaming support should be better at this price point. It has HDMI 2.1 inputs that support 4K gaming at 120Hz. Also, it has both Auto Low Latency (ALLM) and Variable Refresh Rate (VRR), but only two of its HDMI ports support these features, and one of them serves as the dedicated eARC port. Both the QN90B and the C2 deliver more gaming flexibility.

While Sony’s first attempt at a mini-LED TV is mostly a success, the X95K’s price makes its shortcomings more noticeable.

See our full Sony X95K review.

  • Black levels suffer in bright scenes

  • Noticeable light bloom

  • Gaming support is lacking

Sony X90K

  • Screen sizes: 55″, 65″, 75″, 85”
  • HDR support: Dolby Vision, HDR10, HLG
  • Smart platform: Google TV

If you’re looking for a taste of high-end performance without the high-end price tag, consider the X90K, Sony’s best mid-range TV. For less than the cost of most of the Sony TVs on this list, it delivers a bright, colorful picture, a user-friendly smart platform, and a handful of useful gaming features.

With an average picture brightness of around 600 to 700 nits in both SDR and HDR, the X90K is a great choice for folks who watch cable TV or stream their favorite shows during the day. Small highlights (like the shimmer of light on a samurai sword) get even brighter, and with both HDR10 and Dolby Vision support in tow, the X90K is one of the best ways to showcase HDR content without spending an arm and a leg. Thanks to the brand’s Triluminos quantum dot technology it covers about 92% of the HDR color gamut (DCI-P3). With Sony’s much-lauded picture processing conducting the proceedings behind the scenes, everything from upscaled content to native 4K content looks clean and accurately expressed.

Unfortunately, you’re liable to notice some light bloom whenever bright picture elements are overlaid on a dark background. This is because the X90K isn’t equipped with very many dimming zones—something you don’t have to worry about as much if you invest in a higher-end mini-LED TV (like the aforementioned X95K). Like some of the higher-end Sony TVs on this list, the X90K’s gaming support is also limited; only two of the X90K’s four HDMI inputs support 4K gaming at 120Hz, with ALLM and VRR. Non-gamers won’t be affected by this limitation, though.

The X90K is a great compromise for folks who want a handful of cutting-edge features and a great picture, but who don’t feel comfortable jumping up to the high-end, heavy-hitting options that often cost twice as much. The X95K delivers better contrast control than the X90K, but it costs significantly more. The X90K is a sensible alternative.

  • Bright enough for daytime viewing

  • Great smart platform

  • Accommodating design

Sony X80K

  • Screen sizes: 43”, 50”, 55”, 65”, 75”, 85”
  • HDR: Dolby Vision, HDR10, HLG
  • Smart platform: Google TV

The X80K is one of the most affordable Sony TVs. A mid-range TV, its performance will be fine for most people, but gamers and cinephiles may want to consider different options.

The X80K has an accurate out-of-the-box picture, with realistic-looking color due to Sony’s Triluminos Pro color enhancement technology. The X80K’s HDR performance was impressive, as the HDR10 and Dolby Vision content we watched looked good. SDR content holds up well in daytime viewing, but the X80K struggles with dark-room viewing. It has shallow black levels due to a lack of local dimming. There was significant light bleed in the bottom corners.

Like other Sony TVs, the X80K comes with the Google TV smart platform. It has a heavy amount of sponsored content on the home screen, but it is a fast, flexible smart platform.

The X80K is not the best option for gamers with next-gen systems. It does have Auto Low Latency Mode, but its native refresh rate is 60Hz and none of its HDMI ports support for 4K gaming at 120Hz.

How We Test Sony TVs


Our lab is outfitted with much of the same equipment you would find at a factory that manufactures and calibrates televisions.

The Testers

As Reviewed’s Home Theater expert, Michael Desjardin takes picture quality seriously, but he also understands that not every TV is a good fit for everyone. A Senior Staff Writer, Michael has been a member of the Reviewed tech team since 2014.

Over his A/V career of more than two decades, Reviewed A/V and Electronics Senior Editor John Higgins has written about all manner of technology, from TVs and speakers to headphones, AVRs and gaming. He is an Imaging Science Foundation Level III-certified calibrator.

We measure things like peak brightness, black level, hue, and so on.

The Tests

Our thorough testing process gathers data marginal enough to satisfy video engineers, but also is relevant to the average person’s viewing experience. Outside of the technical tests, we also spend a lot of time watching and using each TV to get a feel for the at-home experience.

What to Consider When Buying Sony TVs

Sony has been a household name for high-quality TVs since its CRT TV heyday back in the 1990s. Here are some things to consider when shopping for Sony TVs.

Display type

Sony manufactures OLED TVs and a mix of high-end and midrange LED sets.

LED, or Light Emitting Diode, may be used interchangeably with LCD, or Liquid Crystal Display. LEDs, the backlights used in LCD TVs, shine through a layer of “liquid crystal,” a semi-solid substance that gets its name for its ability to morph in reaction to tiny electrical volts and allow light to pass through.

OLED, a different panel technology than LED/LCD, stands for Organic Light Emitting Diode. An OLED TV combines the backlight and display arrays, using sub-pixel strata that produce light and color individually.

OLED panels look great because each pixel can operate independently. LED/LCD TVs can imitate this functioning via local dimming. This is a process where localized clusters of LEDs dim or boost depending on whether the screen needs to be darker or brighter.

When shopping for TVs, you may also see a QLED designation. Those LED TVs have quantum dots, which allows the displays to produce rich colors, especially those that rely on combinations of red and green. Sony utilizes quantum dots in many of its higher-end LED TVs, usually called “Triluminos” or “Triluminos Display.”

QLED is different from the technology Sony employs in its A95K. For our favorite Sony TV, the company uses quantum dots and OLED in combination to create a spectacular display. The use of this technology is rare now, but you can also find it in the Samsung S95B.

Smart platform

Although Google TV isn’t our favorite smart platform—that honor belongs to Roku—it is a great option for everyday streaming. Google TV is standard on Sony televisions, replacing Android TV. Although there is a heavy amount of sponsored content on the home screen, it is a fast, flexible smart TV platform that’s user-friendly. You’ll have access to your favorite streaming services, including Netflix, Disney+, and Amazon Prime Video with these smart TVs.

Are Sony TVs worth it?

Absolutely. Sony’s TV models are closer to high end than entry-level, and there are hardly any screen sizes smaller than 50 inches. Because of this, you can usually expect to spend a good amount of money for a Sony TV, but you’ll get a quality television that delivers an excellent picture.

How to choose the perfect TV Sony

With so many models and features to choose from, it’s hard to decide which TV fits your needs. We’ll help you choose your Sony BRAVIA TV to open up a whole new world of home entertainment.


There are two types of screens – OLED and LCD. Each one has unique features and uses our technology to deliver a great viewing experience, no matter which model you choose.

OLED TVs: Deeper Darks and Brighter Lights

Our OLED TVs have over 8 million self-illuminating pixels that can be used independently. Since each pixel can be turned on or off individually, the image is rendered with rich blacks and bright highlights, which greatly enhances the contrast. Cognitive Processor XR and unique panel control technology enhance color and contrast for true-to-life viewing. OLED TVs are great for watching movies, as texture clarity, detail and saturation of dark scenes will be much higher.

Wide color spectrum for true-to-life hues and tones

With the Cognitive Processor XR, our OLED TVs reproduce over a billion colors. Together with a wide color gamut panel and human perception processor, it analyzes the saturation, hue and brightness of colors for realistic and detailed reproduction.

More depth and texture with rich blacks

The Cognitive Processor XR™ analyzes and enhances the image according to how the human eye perceives colors, so you won’t miss any detail in bright colors or deep shadows.

Surround sound: when the screen is the speaker

With Acoustic Surface Audio+ on Sony OLED TVs, the sound comes directly from the screen, so it matches the picture exactly, which means your viewing experience will be more realistic.

LCD TVs: vivid scenes with rich colors

Backlit LCD TVs provide colorful scenes even in bright rooms. This is also facilitated by the Cognitive Processor XR processor, which ensures the operation of Mini LED and Full Array LED on TVs. Thanks to our unique backlight control technologies, the light on the screen is accurately distributed over the bright areas, providing natural contrast.

Mini LED

The new Mini LED TVs control the backlight for brighter and darker subjects. Because Mini LEDs are much smaller and denser than Full Array LEDs, they require more precise control. It is powered by Sony’s unique XR Backlight Master Drive technology. Thanks to it, you see images on the screen with the most accurate contrast without glare. The image is saturated with natural midtones, deep blacks and vivid hues

Explore Mini LED Models

Full Direct Backlight

Full Array LED places LEDs across the entire screen, allowing you to fine-tune their brightness and saturation to suit the scene. The light is distributed only to the desired areas, without affecting the dark areas. XR Contrast Booster adjusts the brightness of the brightest and darkest areas, darkening or brightening them. The picture looks more realistic due to the additional depth and detail.

Explore our fully direct backlit TVs


There are important points to consider when choosing the right TV size. Find out what you need to pay attention to and how you can increase the screen size. A big TV doesn’t need a huge room. Improved technology and design make it possible to use a larger screen in an existing interior.

Correct distance from the screen

4K TVs reproduce the picture accurately, even if the screen is large or you look at it from a close distance. Typically, the height at which the TV is installed should be two-thirds of the distance between it and the viewer.

Distance from screen: ①90 cm: 49″ ②100 cm: 55″ ③120 cm: 65″ ④140 cm: 75″ ⑤160 cm: 85″

Thinner bezel models

90 002 New models are equipped with thinner frames, due to which the screen area has increased and the original size of the TV has been preserved. In addition, the viewing experience will be more realistic, because you will not be distracted by the frame or other unnecessary details Чтобы узнать точные габариты, ознакомьтесь с техническими характеристиками конкретной модели.”/> .




TV programs


Do you like to watch movies?

Movies often feature a lot of dark scenes, so it’s important that your TV can display both blacks and bright colors realistically and in detail. Synchronization of sound with the picture is also more important for creating the effect of viewing in a cinema.

OLED TVs for watching movies

More than 8 million individual pixels in OLED models are used independently. At the same time, the quality of transmission of light and dark areas of the image is improved, which means that such TVs are great for watching science fiction, horror and action films. Acoustic Surface Audio™ delivers sound from the screen, whereby the sound is reproduced not just from the sides, but from certain areas.

OLED Movies

LCD Movies

Full Array LED and Mini LED TVs light up some areas independently of others, and brighten brighter areas even more for a more realistic picture. LCD models are suitable for watching family movies and animations, which have a lot of bright and bright scenes.

Movie LCDs

Love to watch sports?

Blurring is a major problem when watching fast-paced sporting events such as football matches and car racing. Choose a sharpened TV to enjoy a clear picture.

OLED Sports

The OLED screen displays millions of individually illuminated pixels for incredible picture clarity. Even when watching fast-paced sports, image retention and motion blur will be minimal.

OLED models for fans

Sports on LCD

Choose models with XR Motion Clarity™ , a technology from Sony that reduces motion blur by inserting black images between frames. It uses an independent controller that controls the emitted light and keeps the picture clear and bright.

The Japanese company Sony has been manufacturing television sets for a long time. It was her products that were distinguished by a higher level of quality – buyers appreciated the image quality and the number of connectors. Now Japan is making LCD TVs and many people still consider Sony products to be one of the best in terms of picture quality. However, this does not apply to all devices. In this section, we will consider those models that are the best.

A TV set of this brand in the house is an indicator of the good taste of the owner, his status. And the main advantages are high quality and realism of the image, production culture, solid design. The “Japanese” do not need to take mass character, aggressive advertising. They are well aware of the price of their products, they proved everything long ago, they are completely confident in their superiority. And I must say to the point.
