Sony KD65X750F: Entry-Level 65-inch UHD TV with Good Connectivity

Sony KD65X750F

The multiple connection ports and wireless options of the KD65X750F combined with the quality 4K picture make it a good choice for the bedroom TV. It has some shortcomings with regard to HDR performance and overall brightness but provides ample voice control with smart hub functions.

The X750F series features four screen sizes from 43 to 65 inches. The latter is the only display with the VA panel, while all other screens are based on the IPS type. The black uniformity of the 65-inch version is better while all TVs produce accurate color mapping and good contrast. It is based on the Android TV, which is quite fast and diverse but a bit clunky in navigating.

The Sony KD65X750F produces a balanced and contrast picture in a dark room. The color gamut isn’t too wide while the highlights are well seen in the SDR. Grays have good texture and solidity, but the blacks tend to go gray even in the dark room. Whites are cool, while the reds and greens are natural and accurate. The 4K resolution is maintained well, with high clarity and distinctive details in both shaded and lighted spots. The Dynamic Contrast Enhancer technology further accentuates the highlights making the image more vivid and sharp. The TV supports HDR in HDR10 and HLG formats, however, the performance doesn’t change much in comparison to the SDR mode.

The KD65X750F review must mention smart functionality as well. The Android TV works swiftly and provides multiple streaming options. It might take some time to get used to its interface and transitions, while the display position and the choice bars are quite handy. The TV has a built-in Google Assistant activated through the remote mic, and it also supports Alexa. The voice control helps browse the menu, change the parameters, or perform a quick search on the Web. The TV can also work as a smart home center when hooked up wirelessly to other devices like cameras, doorbells, plugs, etc.

The wide connections choice, mentioned at the beginning of this Sony KD65X750F review, is worth describing. There are four HDMIs (one port is ARC-enabled), three USBs (one of 3.0 version, two — 2.0), composite and component inputs for older video equipment, optical and analog audio outputs, and the Ethernet jack. Wireless features two-band WiFi and Bluetooth. The Sony App has wide functionality on iOS and Android and can completely replace the remote.

The TV has a minimalist design, with thin plastic bezels and V-shaped legs. The latter features the cable compartment to keep the wire out of sight. The remote looks slightly outdated, with multiple rectangular buttons; yet, it is quite functional.
