Sony Bravia KD65XD7504BU 65-Inch Android 4K HDR Ultra HD Smart LED TV : Great value 4k android tv


Good quality product and great picture.

Was going to purchase this tv, either the 55′ or the 65′, but since no model number of either tv is listed in the description, and looking at the reviews, decided to do some digging about this 2 models and explain some concepts that are misleading for the consumer in all the tv brands nowadays, that requires research to fully understand some concepts, putting it somewhat resumed;main thing people need to be aware nowadays is the wrong publicity of what is hdr and if the tv accurately reproduces its content, just so you know, for a tv to display hdr content correctly, the minimum requirement that a tv needs to have are:1. Peak brightness above 500 nits for an ok to good hdr experience or peak brightness around 1000 nits for a full hdr content;2. Colour gamut of at least a 8 bit colour display with frc (frc is a technology that allows a 8 bit colour display to emulate a 10 bit colour display), or even better a real 10 bit or 12 bit colour display (but lets ignore those because their prices are for someone who have a really good wallet, and are the ones that should give you full hdr content);note: 8 bit colour: 16,777,216 colours (24 bits: 8 red, 8 green, 8 blue). Note: 8 bit + frc and 10 bit colours: 1,073,741,824 colours (30 bits: 10 red, 10 green, 10 blue). I’m just explaining this because most of the cheapest tv brands say they have hdr, just really don’t have it, which i believe its false advertising for the consumer and a really set back when you think you are really buying a good tv with all the goodies for a good price. Putting this way, you think you bought a ferrari, but you were given a fiat with the looks of a ferrari. So basically, if you buy a 8 bit tv that says it reproduces hdr, this is a lie and you don’t even need to care about brightness in that tv, simple because it doesn’t have a display that can reproduce all the hdr colours. Example: 55′ samsung ue55ku6400 or any 6000 samsung (2016 tv series). Now lets go to the brightness, although to have a full hdr experience, the tv display needs at least 1000 nits of peak brightness, you can still enjoy a good hdr experience if the tv display reaches half that value, 500 nits, off course you wont have the full hdr experience, but the price difference between the models are something to take in consideration. Bellow 450 nits of peak brightness in a tv, the hdr experience isn’t going to be noticeable at all and will come blurred and with fake colours in the display.

Good tv happy with it it doesn’t go hdr in 4k only 1080.

Sony Bravia KD65XD7504BU 65-Inch Android 4K HDR Ultra HD Smart LED TV with Youview, Freeview HD (2016 Model) – Black : Great product, love the picture quality and look of the tv, stand is easy to assemble and looks great.

🙂 i am sooo happy with this tv . Its more like an entertainment centre . Ive always wanted a big telly and i managed to get this one in the easter sales. Still a big price for me though but i am so glad i got it, its amazing . And such good quality too, as i expect from sony. . There’s too much that this tv can do too explain here (and to be honest i probably would never use or understand) but. Great picture quality and sound that’s the main thing . Easy to use and set up and it certainly looks good .Delivery was very quick too thank you .

This is a great tv, the 4k image quality is beautiful and the low input lag is great for playing games. The colour range is very good and hdr looks great too. The android features work very well, though the wifi chip in the tv seems to be quite weak, and doesn’t always pick up the wifi (despite the fact all other devices i use in the room have no issue), which can be annoying. It’s also an 8-bit panel from what i can tell, which means that the hdr isn’t as good as the 10-bit model, which is only a little more expensive. Overall i’m very happy with this tv, but i should have probably paid a little more for the 10-bit version.

Excellent tv and easy to wall mount.

Great tv- excellent picture quality, but source jneeds to be in ultra 4k hd to see the best of it.

Amazing picture quality, lots of great features and built in chrome cast which is fantastic. Lots of easy to add apps and its a perfect size for a living room or bedroom.

Excellent great price loaded with everything aaa**** buy it again highly recommended.

Very pleased with picture quality. Always buy sony and never disappointed.

When you want to buy a tv it needs to be sony. The picture quality is always the best. The picture modes are always the best, too. But you have to consider that this product is much more than just a tv. Personally, i don’t like any of the smart tv interfaces. They are not user-friendly, work very slow, and have limited capabilities – honestly, they shouldn’t be called smart after all. Yet, the android tvs tend to be much better. Sony + android is making it a good deal for me and this tv is an entrance model to this world. The android interface is quite fast and responsive. It gives you very good options in terms of connectivity and usability.

Easy to set up and easy to use with great features such as playstation network for ps4 owners and android tv. Access to netflix and amazon is a couple of button presses maximum. Got to use it with my lads xbox one s yet but i expect good results.

Fantastic tv the works well with more than two consoles put into it, i put three consoles and a streaming box into the hdmi ports and the all look great in their 4k enabled viewing. I would recommend to any gamer or someone looking for a man/woman cave.

Whilst i found this tv to be good value at £549, there are a few things i dislike about it. It sometimes reacts slowly to commands from the remote and the youview system is annoying to use. Sometimes i just switch it off and switch it on again if it freezes. Youtube works well, but i have ongoing issues with amazon video on this device (the picture) and i gave up (i run it through the bluray player now, which is fine). The music on my usb sticks worked through my bluray, but not through this tv’s usb ports. Not a huge problem, but still disappointing nonetheless. The picture & sound are very good. The sound is loud enough to not require a soundbar.

Read a lot of reviews and then bought one of these from amazon warehouse. A lot of reviews intimated that the youview loading times were deal breaker on this tv but, perhaps since the software updates, i’ve no issue. Occasionally there are small delays whilst channel info updated but certainly nothing that ruins my experience. 4k screen is a picture and the internet tv side is very responsive and a pleasure to use. Tv also plays back 4k video shot on dji phantom 3 with no transcoding needed for those with interest in drones.

Great tv good size,picture,sound. One problem unable to connect ipad to tv.

Got a good deal in the black friday sales. Fine for use with a home theatre pc, although i wouldn’t use the included ‘smart’ features like youview and other apps as they are really slooooooooow. Not proper hdr, but a good display for the price.

  1. Size: 49 inch Verified Purchase
    Bought this product and nearly a year ago. Thought of contacting amazon many times as i dont really complain but after paying so much i feel robbed. Tv switches on but after some time it restarts again itself and remote does not work for atleast first 2 minutes so you have to wait to change channel or switch to anything else now i feel like throwing this product after a year worth of pain.

  5. 4.0 out of 5 stars Beware of the Specifications of the 55" & the 65" TV, this are 2 different models with only the 55" capable of some HDR content

    1. 5.0 out of 5 stars Great value 4k android tv
      I purchased sony kd-55xd7004 tv on a special offer, and would like to share my experiences with would be buyers. Designfirstly, the design is very good , almost consisting of having no bezel and the full screen is visible. The bezel is made of black plastic surround looking almost aluminium giving it a premium appearance. Picture qualitywhen comparing the picture quality i will compare this tvs picture to my previous tv a sony ex524 which it replaces, and also a w705 and 48wd653 which are currently in use. Please note i already own a sony x830 4k tv which i have reviewed and is very similar to the xd7004. The picture has a lot more definition and clarity than my ex524 very vibrant, but the colours look more realistic and definitely sharper. Standard definition upscaling is very good, some tv broadcasts such a bbc1 almost looks hd. When comparing to the w705 and w605 there is not much difference in sd , but in hd there is lot more detail and noticeable clarity. This tv has the new 4k x reality processor and it seems to improve on the previous x reality pro chip, that sony has been using for the last 3 years. In terms of picture quality this tv sets the bar quite high.

    “hdd recording (rec) and satellite features are not available if youview functionality is enabled. ” but without youview you cannot get catch up tv nor itv-player nor all4. With it enabled you cannot pause, rewind or record. Buy another brand with similar specs such as samsung or jvc that has freeview play installed.
