Sony X930E overview

  • 1Description

View content at four times the resolution of 1080p with the Sony XBR-X930E-Series 65"-Class HDR UHD Smart LED TV. It has a 64.5" LED edge-lit LCD display, and incorporates Sony's Motionflow XR 960 technology to digitally enhance fast-moving images to reduce blur. The XBR-X930E has built-in Wi-Fi and Ethernet connectivity to allow access to 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.

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 a composite video source instead. Three USB ports are also onboard for connecting compatible multimedia peripherals like flash drives.

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

Slim Backlight Drive+
With a double-edge LED panel, Slim Backlight Drive+ directs light where it's needed, boosting dimming precision for higher peak brightness, contrast, and realism.
4K HDR Processor X1 Extreme
Made to enhance 4K HDR pictures, the 4K HDR Processor X1 Extreme is designed to provide real-time image processing to upscale content from any source nearer to 4K HDR quality.
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.
X-tended Dynamic Range PRO Backlighting
The X-tended Dynamic Range PRO backlighting algorithm is designed to faithfully reproduce a wide brightness range for bright lights and deep blacks.
Rediscover Every Detail with 4K X-Reality PRO
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.
TRILUMINOS Display for Extra Colors
The TRILUMINOS Display is designed to selectively map colors across a wide gamut, helping to ensure that subtle colors do not become oversaturated and unnatural.
Clean Look
Keep wires out of sight with the hidden cable panel structure. All of your cables are concealed behind the panel and run down through the legs of the stand, so everything looks tidy.
Slim, Flush-Surface Display
The screen has a fully flush surface and thin bezel so you can stay focused on the picture.
Motionflow XR 960 Helps Keep the Action Smooth
Motionflow XR 960 is designed to create and insert extra frames between the original ones. It compares key visual factors on successive frames, then calculates the split second of missing action in the sequences.
Front-Facing 3-Way Speaker
The front-facing speaker is designed to project voices and dialogue with more clarity than conventional downward-firing speakers.
Dual Database Processing
The 4K HDR Processor X1 Extreme has two imaging databases that work together in real time to enhance your picture. By searching through thousands of picture patterns in the databases, they remove unwanted noise and upscale every image closer to nearly the clarity of 4K.
Super Bit Mapping 4K HDR
Super Bit Mapping 4K HDR is designed to create a smoother, more natural picture by reducing color banding. With 14-bit signal processing, it breaks up the solid bands of color of an 8-bit or 10-bit source, up-converting to a 14-bit-equivalent gradation, with 64 times more color levels to deliver enhanced reproduction of faces, sunsets, and other areas of subtle color gradation.
Object-Based HDR Remaster
By analyzing the objects in each scene individually, Object-Based HDR Remaster enhances color and contrast, bringing everything you watch closer to the quality of HDR. Dark elements get darker, bright elements brighter, and everything in between is more accurately lit.
Chromecast built-in for Wireless Mirroring
The XBR-X930E features Chromecast built-in so you can cast your favorite entertainment, like YouTube or Netflix, from your personal device on to the TV from Android, iOS, or your laptop.
The Content Bar Helps You Find Everything Fast
The Content Bar is designed to be unobtrusive and 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.
Say What You Want to See with Voice Search
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. You can also get recommendations; asking for a specific genre, for example, brings up a list of suitable options.
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 lost 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.
Google Play Provides a World of Content
Discover movies, TV shows, games, and more from Google Play.
ClearAudio+ for Clearer, More Immersive Audio
ClearAudio+ is designed to fine-tune TV sound for an immersive experience that seems to surround you. Hear music, dialog, and surround effects with enhanced clarity and separation, whatever you're watching.
Bluetooth Connectivity for Wireless Streaming
Bluetooth technology allows you to make a quick, short-range wireless connection that won't be interrupted by objects in the signal path. Once paired, you're free to stream all of your favorite content – including movies, pictures, and music – from your smartphone or tablet to your TV.
Clear Phase for Smooth, Balanced Frequencies
Clear Phase uses a computer model to analyze and compensate for inaccuracies in speaker response by "sampling" the speaker frequency. This information is fed back to cancel out any peaks or dips in the speaker's natural response, resulting in more natural audio with smooth, even reproduction of all frequencies.
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, allowing it to emulate three-dimensional sound fields.
Enrich Your Viewing with the TV SideView App
Find, record, and talk about your favorite TV shows using the TV SideView app. Use your tablet or smartphone (Android or iOS) 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.
IR-Equipped Remote Control
The infrared (IR) transmitter built into the remote control lets you control other devices in your home from your Sony TV remote; you can use it to control your cable box.

    Sony X930E reviews

    XBR-X930E-Series 65"-Class HDR UHD Smart LED TV is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellente This is a great TV. I have an older Sony HD TV, which was very good, so I wasn't expecting much of an improvement, but I bought it after reading a lot of positive reviews for it. This time the hype was actually true. The 930E is the best TV I've ever owned. There isn't much 4K content to watch yet, but the upscaling it does even makes 480p (SD) look fantastic. If it doesn't break, I can see myself using it for a good five years at least. The speakers are, of course, junk. I bought the CT290 sound bar made by Sony, but that's junk too. It's better than the built in speakers but my old Panasonic bar that cost around the same is much better. Buy some other one instead.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best 65" TV at the $2,000 price point. I'd done lots of research and viewing this TV is the best TV at this price. If you're spending around $2,000 this is the best choice. Picture quality, features, looks. It's got it all. If I was willing to spend $1,000 I'd have gotten an LG OLED. Pros : * Picture quality * Cable management * Setup and User Interface * Quality of case and stand is top notch Cons : *� Menu is a bit laggy compared to my Samsung 55" 9000 series * This TV is about 20lb heavier then the Samsung QLED 65" * Viewing angle. OLED beat it but if you're within a 120 degree viewing angle you're fine

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from We Love this TV Bought myself a great Christmas present with the Sony X930. Beautiful bright picture. Even the commercials are interesting. Had a 55 in Toshiba that we thought had a good picture. First night watching the Sony my wife said, honey was our last TV black and white?

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Excellent tv if you could turn it on. After tv is off for extended period of time you have to unplug it and plug it back in to be able to turn it on and use the remote. Many Sony Bravia tvs have this issue and son is not in any hurry or unable to reslove it. Save your time and money

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value for price but... Great picture, sometimes Software laggy. Internal Chromecast only works reliably with a wired connection. Great TV, 4K movies from 4K Blu-ray look gorgeous. TV looks very elegant. Caution: You need. Helper to mount this TV. It is very heavy and you risk damage to your TV and your back. The delivery was fast and the deliver guy brought it to my floor. Only sad point: I saw too late that the 2018 versions (E (2017) -> F (2018)) are already out for just slightly more.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved it so much I bought it twice After more than a year of researching and contemplation, I pulled the trigger on this TV in 2017. The X1 Extreme processor, the DolbyVision capability, 4k HDR capability, and the TriLuminos technology combined with local dimming made this TV stand out without having to bump up to an OLED set. Recently, I suffered a moving truck fire in which the set was destroyed. Since the time I originally made my purchase, Sony discontinued this sort of mid-top-tier model, instead giving us the underwhelming 900F. B&H is one of the only (reputable) retailers in the country that still has this set in stock, and I was excited to reorder. A couple notes on this set that I uncovered through deeper research, that a casual purchaser ought to take note of: 1. Dolby Vision is only supported with a software update (these did not come from the factory with Dobly Vision support), and ONLY on HDMI inputs 2 & 3. Coincidentally, HDMI 3 is also the ARC channel, so plan your input scheme carefully, especially if you plan on using ARC and Dobly Vision simultaneously. 2. HDMI 1 & 4 do not support higher resolutions and frame rates, but 2 & 3 do. Again, plan your sources and inputs carefully to get the best experience out of this set. All told, if I lost the TV tomorrow, I would order a third set. At $2,000 it's a great value, and provides stunning picture that rivals lower-tier OLED sets.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fantastic TV and great service by B&H Service was great, order went through quick and simple, all info was sent to me in separate emails ( square trade protection, receipt for tv, shipping info, and $100.00 gift card ) I was a bit confused about the shipping so next day I called B&H and they gave me all the info. I live in Northern California and they use a well know shipping company so I was immediately at ease when I heard the shipping companies name. The agent on the phone was very professional. Now on the TV itself it's a great buy for the money the only thing I didn't like about i is the remote control. I have already given up using it, not sure why sony would put so much effort to pair up with google and try to do all these fancy things and get me stuck with this poorly made remote. the buttons are so flat and small, they are so close to one another. I kept pushing the wrong button often enough to only get frustrated. They could have used a backlit for the remote which isn't there. I like the TV's configuration layout which it's very logical. I also liked the option for all the other internet based channels like Hulu, Netflix, Amazon, etc........ it's so easy to access them and you don' need to switch to another HDMI source. for the remote I ended up using an old remote from my 3 year old direct TV box and it was already paired with a 7 year old sony TV and guess what its 80% compatible and so easy to use so I'm using it as a replacement for the new remote that came with my new TV. The way sony has done it you don't need apple TV, Roku or any other 3rd party box to get the internet based channels. I will have to make some inquiry about some of these newer fancy remotes to see if I can use one to replace all of my remotes. I also bought a new Roku box the 4k version from B&H a while ago and I'm planing to use it on another TV in the house. My rating would have been a 5 star if it hadn't been for the remote control oh well in my opinion no one makes a decent remote with the exception of the cable companies maybe Sony and Samsung could copy these guys.
