Sony X850D overview

  • 1Description

View content at 4 times the resolution of 1080p with the Sony XBR-X850D 75" Class HDR 4K Smart LED TV. Lower resolution video sources can also be upscaled to near-4K quality. This TV has a 74.5" LED display, and incorporates Sony Motionflow XR 960 technology to digitally enhance fast-moving images to reduce blur. The XBR-X850D has built-in Wi-Fi and Ethernet connectivity to allow access to your favorite apps and Internet-based content via Android TV, plus content sharing and screen mirroring with your other smart devices such as your smartphone or tablet.

With one component video and four HDMI inputs, there are multiple options for connecting high-definition video sources. The component input also acts as a hybrid port, which allows you to connect an additional composite video source. Three USB ports are also onboard for connecting multimedia peripherals like flash drives.

Enhanced Detail with 4K HDR
Combined with 4K Ultra HD resolution, HDR video content is designed to deliver exceptional detail, color, and contrast with a far wider range of brightness than other video formats.
Augmented Color, Depth and Realism
Colors are designed to be as rich and vivid as nature's own thanks to the TRILUMINOS Display with more shades of red, green, and blue. When combined with HDR video, TRILUMINOS Display further increases the color depth for noticeably brighter and more realistic colors.
Enhance Every Scene with 4K Resolution
The 4K Processor X1 ensures that everything you watch - movies, sports, and streaming video - looks the best it possibly can. Color, contrast and clarity are all optimized based on what you are watching.
Motionflow Keeps the Action Smooth
Sony's Motionflow XR 960 refresh rate technology allows fast-moving action sequences in sports and movies to be seen in enhanced clarity.
Enhanced Realism with 4K X-Reality PRO
Individual parts of each scene are analyzed and matched with an image database that independently addresses texture, contrast, color, and edges to enhance detail, no matter what you're watching.
Dynamic Contrast Enhancer
Thanks to the Dynamic Contrast Enhancer, you'll experience more texture in every scene with brighter highlights, deeper blacks, and more natural tonal gradation.
Netflix Recommended TV
The Netflix Recommended TV designation means that the TV has been determined by Netflix to provide enhanced performance and easier menu navigation.
Android TV
Find all the entertainment you want, from movies and TV shows to thousands of apps.
Say What You Want
Voice search on Android TV provides you with the power of Google search, allowing you to find content across different services without the hassle of time-consuming text entry.
Stream to a 75" Screen with Google Cast
Send movies and music from your smartphone to your TV with Google Cast, and use your phone as a remote control.
Your Favorite Apps, on Your TV
Enjoy a huge range of apps from Google Play, including YouTube, Netflix, Amazon Video, Hulu, Pandora, and more. Also, play your favorite Android games on the big screen.
Smart Home Automation
Beyond streaming content, Sony's Android TV platform allows Home Automation control directly from the TV, via a Logitech Harmony Hub, which is available separately. IoT (internet of things) devices such as lights, thermostats, Blu-ray players, security cameras, and other home entertainment devices can be controlled and automated via the push of a button on the TV's remote.
Find Everything Fast
The Content bar is designed to quickly let you find the movie, TV show, or video you're looking for. Call up the Content bar and you can keep watching while you scan through live TV, videos on demand, downloaded TV shows, and more. You can even customize the Content bar to show you the content you go to most often first.
Stream PlayStation Games Straight to Your TV
You can play select PlayStation 3 games directly through your TV without a console. Pair a DUALSHOCK4 controller with the TV and you're ready to play with the same speed and responsiveness as a console thanks to PlayStation Now.
DSEE Restores Detail to Your Digital Music
Low-resolution Internet video, catch-up TV, and other heavily compressed audio files don't always sound so great because a large amount of information gets thrown away when digital audio is compressed. With Digital Sound Enhancement Engine (DSEE) technology, lost frequency components, especially high frequencies, are restored for natural sound with a more spacious feel.
Cinematic S-Force Front Surround
S-Force Front Surround is designed to mimic the way the brain correlates sound sources to create proper volume, time lag, and sound wave spectrum using only left and right speaker channels. By naturally emulating three-dimensional sound fields, you'll enjoy rich, high-fidelity audio across a wider listening area.
Clear Phase for Smooth, Balanced Frequencies
The XBR-X850D uses a computer model to analyze and compensate for inaccuracies in speaker response by "sampling" the speaker frequency with higher precision. This information is fed back to cancel out any peaks or dips in the speaker's natural response, resulting in pure, natural audio with smooth, even reproduction of all frequencies.
Enrich Your Viewing with the TV SideView App
Find, record, and talk about your favorite TV shows using the TV SideView app. Use your Android or iOS tablet or smartphone to see the latest TV schedule as well as view the most popular programs currently trending. Once you've found what you want to watch, you can set an alarm so you never miss the shows you love. Live tweet your reactions and see what other viewers are saying.
Made to Listen: ClearAudio+
ClearAudio+ fine-tunes TV sound for an immersive experience that seems to surround you. Hear music, dialog, and surround effects with greater clarity and separation, whatever you're watching.
IR Blaster - Control Everything with One Remote
The Infra-red (IR) Blaster lets you control other devices in your home from your Sony TV remote. You can use it to control your set-top box (cable box) with the TV remote controller.
Integrated Cable Management
Keep wires out of sight, thanks to a hidden cable panel structure, for a clean look.
Note: Content acquired via certain apps may require subscription to a service.

    Sony X850D reviews

    XBR-X850D Series 75"-Class HDR 4K Smart LED TV is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 16.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from I love the TV not the OS. If they fix that I'll be happy.. Pros: Great image. Cons: TV reboots by it self sometimes. Android app has bugs. Freezes a lot. HDR automatic contrast make screen blink when in dark scenes. I love the picture of this TV. I don't like the app interface. I wish I could have more control and customized it my style, but wont allow it. It will only allow you to customize applications that you download, but not the ones that come with the TV. For example I had spotify and MLB TV customized and now with the last OS update this apps are part of the TV. Now to find this apps I have to go left and navigate over a bunch of apps that I have no interest whatsoever to find spotify and MLB. Is just annoying..

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sony vs Samsung So far, so good. It's only been about one week. I'm not a techie TV aficionado. Moved a 55 Samsung which has an excellent picture and decent sound into another room. So there's the comparison. During research, it was a tough decision between the 75 Samsung and this Sony. Haven't bought Sony in years. The supposed ability to stream lower quality signals tipped the decision to Sony. Compared the $4,000.00 Samsung to this Sony in the store. With whatever they were streaming into the Best Buy TVs, the NEW 75 Samsung SUHD might be a tad better picture, but they're getting over 6.5k for it. Last years 2015 Samsung was not as good as this Sony at this price point. Evidently Sony Triluminous technology is the same this year as last, while Samsung made a jump to SUHD. My price point was $4k. I changed the settings as per RTINGS recommendations, which I never did with a Samsung. Then modified those a tad for my own taste. Bottom line here is: a good signal and you get a great picture. Some are breathtaking. Sports are absolutely stunning. Low quality signal, old color movie for example, you get a decent enough picture. You seem to get best performance if you use/change the one Picture setting according to what you're watching. The sound is pretty poor. I had an old Dell MMS5650 sound system that was in a box heading up into the attic from a deceased computer. Amazon-ed an adapter; and the sound is now excellent. My opinion, If you're a Samsung person, this picture is a touch different. Equal but different. If you're a Sony advocate, you'll likely love it. I'm growing more impressed with it as time goes by.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful TV After receiving our 75 Sony 4K TV we were very pleased with the picture. But the TV ended up having a problem that was not repairable by Sony over the phone. I called B&H after 3 days and they immediately sent out a new TV and arranged to have the old one picked up. Thank You B&H! New TV works great. Wonderful picture.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful picture with only one complaint. Easy setup. One complaint: the setup guide doesn't make it sufficiently clear that a USB cable must be installed to communicate with the set-top box. This is frustrating when all wires are in the wall, the TV is in place and then you realize that the USB cable has to also be fed through the wall.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great pic quality except for black levels I bought 75 model and here are some pros and cons: Pros: Great colors. You could definitely see really dark color. Many reviews have said the brightness is low but I don't find it the case. Good HDR quality. Cons: There is definitely bleeding issue where on a black screen you will see bright spots on part of the screen especially on the corners. Remote could be better. Too many buttons. Takes some time to start when you turn the tv

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Would definitely buy again. This TV was a great purchase and BH delivered on their service excellence. I called with several questions as I was concerned about my high price purchase. Reps were excellent. I was called prior to delivery. Shipment was on time and they brought in my home and checked for damage. TV was fine and worked great. I will always use BH if I can. Thanks B&H! Please enroll me in the $1000 as that would be icing on the cake. Great job folks

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I would buy this TV again and again. I bought this TV last December just to replace my 50 Sony just because I wanted a much larger screen & of course 4K feature. The picture quality is stunning whether your watch games or tv stations or youtube. As usual, I enjoy shopping at B&H because of their Excellent Service & fair price on cameras an electronics. I wish they could sell iPhone too!!!

Honestly i can't see spending more than this on a TV when this is absolutely stunning-get settings for it online and you will love the picture-why they dont set stuff to the best settings or close from factory is beyond me-but once set you will love this
