Sony KD-65S8505C Review – The Company Enters the 4K Curved Screen Bandwagon

Sony is a prime leader in the tech market, and they have started to get into the 4K curved screen bandwagon with the Sony KD-65S8505C. Those who have already experienced watching with the Sony’s new curved display may even forget that it is, in fact, curved. This is due to the tech giant employing a markedly gender degree of curvature unlike those that are seen from Samsung and Panasonic. The company’s belied is that a shallower curve will have less disruptive capabilities in terms of viewing experience. The slight curve will especially be useful during off-axis viewing.

Sony KD-65S8505C Review - The Company Enters the 4K Curved Screen Bandwagon

The Sony KD-65S8505C Entrance to the 4K Curved Screen Market is a Big One

Just like Sony’s flat 8505 TVs, the Sony KD-65S8505C does not boast speaker-bearing “wings.” The sounds will come out of its thin frame and can barely be seen. It is a beautiful design with a very minimalistic approach to 4K TVs, even for a 65-inch screen. However, those who are looking for “insanely amazing sound” will not be able to find it here.

The display sports a 4K UHD pixel count of 3,840 x 2,160. It also gives viewers Sony’s flagship Triluminos display technology. This is designed to deliver more expansive, but a more subtle color palette. In other words, the images being shown on the display are much sharper, has better contrast, but not so much that it would look unrealistic.

When it comes to processing power with the Sony KD-65S8505C 4K Curved Television, the company is not messing around. It is designed with the company’s own X1 picture processing chipset which is capable of handling even more color address points when compared to the previous X-Reality Pro system.

But the X1 chipset is not just about the color performance it is capable of delivering. There are other areas that make the chipset a beast in giving great visual performance to images being laid out on the screen. Examples of the areas of concern are detail resolution, noise reduction, and even an edge-lit backlight system. There is also shadow detail reproduction (for greater clarity), and even motion clarity.

Powered by Android technology, and great performer in every aspect, the Sony KD-65S8505C is an absolute must-buy for everyone who wants to enjoy curved 4K display technology. It can be used for that quality “family TV” time, or even a dedicated screen for a home cinema room. Either way, you won’t be disappointed.
