Sometimes it pays to wait before buying a new TV. Sony’s 2020 model 65-inch LED 4K TV, model X750H, was $1,000 when it was introduced last spring. But now, it’s available for $697 at Amazon.com.

“Picture: What everyone wants to know! It’s great!” writes one verified buyer. “For the model/price point, I don’t think you can beat the picture. Compared to the similar brands like Samsung, this is definitely a lot sharper NO competition but I expect nothing less from Sony. The blacks are darker and the whites brighter. The presets for different picture modes are incredible and you can switch easily depending on what you watch. I find myself sticking to “Standard” mode the most. There is little to no glare on the screen, and I have the TV placed right next to a wall of windows with the blinds open 90% of the time. I think the “Standard” TV mode helps in this regard as well. The game mode is awesome I already see a huge difference in latency compared to my older TV. COD has never played so well. The TV is incredibly bright I was really surprised but it also looked clear and crisp. The HDR on Netflix was amazing everything looked incredibly lifelike it out shines all higher end TV’s I’ve purchased in the past I guess technology just gets better and better.”
Rtings.com, which reviews televisions, says the Sony X750H “is a decent TV for most uses. It has a high contrast ratio and outstanding black uniformity, making it a great choice for watching movies and gaming in the dark. Although it gets reasonably bright for watching daytime TV, it isn’t bright enough to deliver a good HDR experience.”
The site lists the TV’s pros as high contrast ratio and decent response time; the cons as narrow viewing angles and sub-par gray uniformity.
