I wouldn’t hide that Sony is by far my favorite brand when talking about LED TVs. I personally own one for about 5 years now but I have also compared many more Sony screens and I really think most of their models are in a class of its own.
Today, we are taking a look at Sony’s XBR X850C Series of high-end TVs and more specifically at XBR55X850C which is the 55 inch version.
What Sony says about their product?
The powerful 4K Processor X1 brings stunning picture quality to whatever you’re watching. Every source is intelligently analyzed and upscaled to our best 4K resolution, from TV broadcasts, Blu-ray Discs™ and DVDs, to 4K internet videos. Enjoy incredible 4K images with stunning clarity, more lifelike colors and sparkling contrast.
Precision Detail Enhancer cuts noise and boosts detail in everything you watch, no matter the source, for a sharper and clearer picture.
Precision Color Mapping independently analyses every scene and pixel so the perfect shade and tone are applied dynamically for rich, natural colors.
Dynamic Contrast Enhancer makes the bright parts of the screen brighter and the dark parts a truer, deeper black. Dependent upon the needs of the incoming video signal, the 4K Processor X1 dynamically controls screen brightness, giving deep blacks and bright peaks. Learn more about contrast
No matter the source, every pixel is upscaled beautifully by our most powerful 4K picture processing technology ever. Scenes are analyzed and matched with a special image database for supremely lifelike detail, whatever you’re watching.
The 4K Processor X1 delivers ultra-lifelike detail, using new algorithms such as Noise Crusher, Flat Area Detection and Super Resolution. These advanced technologies work together to maintain natural-looking, low-noise image textures, and refined content both native and upscaled.
