If you are shopping for a great quality picture with a large 55″ screen sub $1,000 it is really hard to beat this Flatscreen Sony XBR55X810C 55-Inch 4K Ultra HD Smart LED TV.

Appearance

You’re getting a very attractive looking TV that can be wall mounted or can be placed on a pedestal. The pedestal stand is included in the box but you’ll need to buy a bracket if you want to wall-mount your TV.

The supplied pedestal stand is positioned in the centre of the base and takes up about half of the overall width of the TV.  This means that you won’t need a full width unit to put it on, although if it overhangs the unit, you need to make sure its positioned so that it won’t get knocked accidentally.

Sony XBR 55 X810C Quick Reference Guide

Picture Quality

This Sony has a VA panel with 120Hz refresh rate to give nice black levels and good contrast when you’re watching from in front of the TV.  If you’re sitting off to the side, then the colours and contract will drop off so be aware of this if you need wide viewing angles.

The screen has a semi-gloss finish and gives the best viewing experience in darker rooms so its probably not the best choice if you want it for daytime viewing in a room with a lot of windows.

If you want it for watching Movies and Sports then you will be delighted with your choice. Motion handling is good for sports and combined with a low input lag makes it suitable for gaming too.

Now, you need to know that this TV does not have 3D nor is it an HDR screen. But, overall this is great value for money – a quality picture with good upscaling so it will handle even Standard Definition (SD) material well.

Connectivity

The Sony XBR55X810C is equipped with 4 HDMI ports, each of which is configured for HDCP . 2.2, plus 3 USB ports and a range of legacy connections. One of the HDMI inputs is MHL-compatible for viewing photos and videos from a compatible smartphone on the TV screen.

It also has a 3.5mm headphone socket and a digital audio out in case you want to connect up to a sound system or external speaker system.
