Sony 55X8505B 4k tv review
English

Good of What Hi-Fi to get a review out of this new telly! But please can we have a bit more detail about the panel and its black levels? Is it an IPS panel like LG use or a VA like Panasonic? Did you apply a light meter to the screen on a B&W pattern to get the black levels quantitatively? IPS seem to come out about 0.15 cd/m^2, VA maybe a 1/3 of that, and a good plasma less than 0.01. It would be good to know how this set performed on such a calibrated scale, or at least to know whether we are in the LG or Panny domains of LCD greyness.

It's an IPS panel.

From Norwegian review:

"Picture-wise, the big difference is that X8505 has an IPS panel instead of a VA panel."

Thanks. That is useful, if

Thanks. That is useful, if rather disappointing to hear. I'd better have a long view in a darkened room before I decide whether to buy, as I've thought the LG PQ was very poor.
