Sony A1E overview

  • 1Description

View content at four times the resolution of 1080p with the Sony A1E-Series 55"-Class HDR UHD Smart OLED TV. It has a 54.6" OLED display, and incorporates Sony's Motionflow XR technology to digitally enhance fast-moving images to reduce blur. The A1E-series has built-in Wi-Fi and Ethernet connectivity to allow access to the Google Play store, your favorite apps, and Internet-based content via its Android TV operating system, plus content sharing and screen mirroring with your other compatible smart devices such as your smartphone or tablet. The Opera web browser is also available for download through the Google Play store.

With four HDMI inputs, there are multiple options for connecting high-definition video sources. A composite video input is also available for connecting legacy equipment, while three USB ports are onboard for connecting compatible multimedia peripherals like flash drives.

Note: Content acquired via certain apps may require subscription to a service.

Enhanced Contrast and Black Levels
Sony's OLED TV is designed to produce enhanced black, shadow, and color. Over 8 million self-illuminating pixels are individually controlled by the X1 Extreme processor, helping to create an exquisite, unprecedented contrast.
Designed for Pure Black
OLED pixels work individually and can be turned off completely to deliver absolute black levels, helping to reveal enhanced detail, depth, textures, and colors.
Enhanced Detail with 4K HDR
Combined with 4K Ultra HD resolution, HDR video content delivers enhanced detail, color, and contrast, with a wider range of brightness than other video formats.
4K HDR Processor X1 Extreme
Sony's 4K HDR Processor X1 Extreme is designed to outperform their 4K Processor X1 with 40% more real-time image processing power. It takes everything you watch and upscales it to near-4K HDR quality. Object-based HDR Remaster technology can detect, analyze, and optimize each object in the picture individually to adjust the overall contrast for a more natural and realistic picture.
Dual Actuators for a Unique Acoustic Experience
Rather than traditional speaker drivers, the A1E-series uses dual actuators that vibrate the OLED screen itself to produce sound.
Vibrant Colors and Smooth Gradations
Colors are designed to be as rich and vivid as nature's own with TRILUMINOS Display technology, with more shades of red, green, and blue. Also, 4K HDR Super Bit Mapping reveals thousands of shades and gradations of light, for sunsets as bright and clear as real life.
360° of Design
This OLED TV is designed so that the stand and speakers virtually disappear.
Powered by Android TV OS
From movies and TV shows to thousands of apps, the Android TV OS (Android 6.0 Marshmallow) is designed to brings you your favorite content in an instant. Cast your favorite apps with Google Cast, and Voice Search helps you find the entertainment you want. And with Google Home compatibility, simply voice-control your TV and ask it to do things, like play your favorite YouTube videos.
Near-4K Upscaling
Two image improvement databases work together to dynamically improve images in real time; 4K X-Reality PRO upscales images to near-4K clarity, while a second database is designed to clean the picture and reduce on-screen noise. Every pixel is enhanced by the 4K HDR Processor X1 Extreme.
Live TV with No Annual Contract
PlayStation Vue allows you to enjoy live TV streaming, including sports, news and more, from your favorite networks, with no annual contract and no surprise fees.
Motionflow XR Helps Keep the Action Smooth
Sony's Motionflow XR refresh rate technology enhances the OLED's panel speed to allow fast-moving action sequences in sports and movies to be seen with enhanced clarity.
Just Say What You Want
Spend less time browsing, and more time watching. Voice search on Android TV provides you with the power of Google search in 42 languages, allowing you to find content across different services without the hassle of time-consuming text entry.
Send to a Bigger Screen with Chromecast built-in
Send movies and music from your smartphone to your TV with Chromecast built-in, plus you can use your phone as a remote control.
Your Favorite Apps on Your TV
Enjoy a range of apps from Google Play, including YouTube, Netflix, Amazon Video, Hulu, Pandora, and more. You can also play your favorite Android games on the big screen.
Integrated Cable Management
Keep wires out of sight, thanks to a hidden cable panel structure, for a clean look.

    Sony A1E reviews

    A1E-Series 55"-Class HDR UHD Smart OLED TV is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic TV Absolutely gorgeous. The picture this TV has is stunning, the inky blacks with the bright colors is just amazing. Had one of the original 4k TV's from Samsung and this TV just blows it out of the water. Plus, the presentation of this TV sitting on the TV stand without any form of visible support stand (when looking at it from the front) is really beautiful. The design of this TV is top notch and has the best picture quality I have ever seen. The sound that comes from this TV is extremely impressive, no it will not out do a surround sound system, but the fact the sound comes from the screen itself is really cool and it produces a very good sound. I'd still go with a surround sound system though.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Great TV although its pricey ... very happy This TV displays amazing pictures. Its well known that its using the LG panel and from that standpoint it could be argued that either choice would be a good one, however this comes with Android TV that I felt was more extensible than WebOS. 4K and HDR support are awesome albeit only useful as more content arrives. But when content is viewed in that format its awesome. It has a sophisticated sound system that is part of the fold out stand for table top use, however this is not useful when you are wall mounting it which is what I did. So some of the higher cost of this TV is wasted in this case. I was disappointed that the Dreamscape app that acts as a screen saver cannot display brighter. Sony forces it into a lower brightness mode to save power I expect, but I wanted to see the beautiful pictures more vividly. I might let it run all day! Remote control is good but you cannot control non-Sony devices with it unless you use the IR blaster. I am using a Harmony remote instead. But what is kind of cool is that the Harmony app for Android works with the Action menu on the remote. I also wish there was an HDMI out on the TV so that I could move the high quality video stream to other TVs in the house through my amplifier.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best Almost purchased the LG but read several reviews about the burn in. A1E does not appear to have that problem. Sony picture is 5 stars. We have Bose (5 speaker and sub) and would rate the Sony sound as 3.5 stars. The sound is descent coming off the TV but it is not a Bose. Most buying this TV probably have a sound system. 4K upscaler is incredible. We are connected to an HDTV antenna and must say the tuner is very good. Netflix button works like magic. We have not made hardly any adjustments bc this TV rocks right out of the box.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Investment I am very pleased with this TV. I have it installed with a wall mount that I did myself with a little help lifting it in place. I couldn't be happier. This is a great TV and I look forward to enjoying it during the upcoming Baseball season. I highly recommend this TV.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great TV, Great Picture Best looking picture of any TV I've ever owned. It is even better than the Plasma 3D-HDTV it replaced. My only concern is my Plasma TV had a life expectancy of about 27 years @ 8 hours a day use; while the OLED TV's only have about 5 years @ 8 hours a day use.
