Unique to Sony, TRILUMINOS Display technology creates incredibly true, natural shades of colors—just the way you want them. Hard-to-reproduce reds, aqua blues and emerald greens are displayed beautifully, so landscapes and seascapes look more vivid. Faces look better, too, with natural skin tones. It’s all thanks to a TRILUMINOS display that uses more colors to produce a more vibrant picture

I have always purchased Sony televisions for over 25 years..I even had the very first XBR model back when...so it was no surprise that this Sony XBR 65 inch 4K model is probably the best on the market. Remember it is Sony who introduced 4K in movie theaters so stick with a Sony if you are planning on the 4K plunge. Right out of the box without any tweaks the picture is amazing. This Triluminos display that the television has brings out the best colors I have ever seen. The 4K upscale from regular HD cable programming is litterally jaw dropping. Most scenes(programming) look so crisp and clear and so colorful that it looks almost 3D like.(and I am not using the 2D to 3D upconversion)..Remember it also depends on the channel you are watching,the transmission of the signal. When the transmission is not so good there's nothing much that can be done(gargbage in-garbage out),but when the signal is perfect you will be amazed at the clarity and color. And its not just me--I recently had a few guests over and their reactions were "It's beautiful".."I just can't believe the picture"..."It's stunning" was a few of their actual reviews.
I have not experemented with actual 4K content or Mastered in 4K Blu Ray content but if regular HD cable programming is this good..I cant wait to see actual 4K content.(You tube does have some 4K content you can experiment with and I can only say "wait till you see it to believe it")
The 3D is also simply amazing...Wait till you see 3D upscaled to 4K!
I know the price is high at approx $5K but this is the TV that you may have for the next 10+ years,so its a great investment. I have to go now and continue watching the best television I have ever seen....

Ordered this TV last Monday (apparently its only available through SONY store). The sales rep that I spoke to had me under the impression that it would be delivered sometime within the week...didn't end up getting it till the following Thursday. That aside the TV itself was great, exceptional picture quality, even the 3D looks great although it is active not passive which I know some dislike (any windows or other light sources WILL flicker when you have the glasses on so it is best done in a dark room or at night). The glasses that come with the TV are light, comfortable, and can be worn over glasses as far as that goes. Do note that with 4k content right now the data transfer rates limit the fps to 24 Hz, I don't know if these TVs can support higher framerates/refresh rates at full 4k resolution and I couldn't find any clarification of this anywhere I looked, but HDMI 2.0 is a moot point if the TV can't go beyond this limitation. So when I finally got my TV it worked great for about 5 hours but then went out and the bottom LED started blinking red and the screen wouldn't turn on. I immediately called the support line and after instructing me to try unplugging and replugging it they told me they would send out a replacement. Hopefully this was just bad luck but nevertheless something to be careful about. Also this should go without saying but the free shipping does not include installation but DO plug in your TV and make sure the screen comes on and there isn't any cracks before the delivery personnel leave to save you some time and unnecessary headache.

great display, all smart features are terrible

By 

from Lion's Head, ON N0H 1W0, Canada

The actual viewing experience is wonderful and I feel spoiled everyday. The "smart" part of the TV not only adds nothing, it detracts from the experience. The wifi, and networking are buggy, and support has thus far been somewhat poor. The user-interface is probably average for TVs, but when your baseline is a computer, it never feels easy to do anything. Hooking up your own media (movies etc) should be straight-forward, but the ability to look though large folders in a compact list view is very difficult to figure out (I still haven't but assume that I haven't found it yet, rather than the absurd alternative that its not possible). Trying to set up a network drive or media server has been a bust so far. The best compromise I've made so far (and not an option for all) is to completely give up on the "smart" features and buy another computer to plug into the display. With that solution, it turns out that I've paid a lot of money for features that I've given up on and opted for a computer to do them instead. I don't completely blame sony, its hard to compete against a computer interface here, but honestly, I would have been much more happy to buy a "dumb" TV with same display quality and let a computer company worry about the software and the gui.

Great TV but......

By 

from 33565

This TV is great. The color is vivid, good blacks and filled with features. Not to mention it is very pleasing to the eye.....but the juddering is out of hand....it is getting progressively worse. When watching Netflix and Directv seems to be particularly bad. I have heard of a little juddering in other reviews but this way more mild. Hey Sony.....any suggestions other than replacing it?

Hard to replace Mitsubishi rear proj screen but ..

By 

from Chicago, IL 60618, USA

So I loved my 55" Mitsubishi rear projection screen. Lasted 15 years. We've seen a lot together. World Cups, the first season of American Idol, Jack Bauer, 911. But it just gave out. Almost to the day I bought it. So, this TV is still just a TV if that makes any sense. But what I have seen so far is beautiful. It has a very rear projection feel, a sort of earthy quality to the picture. Honest. Not overly bright, but sharp and ... Earthy.

Comments about Sony 65" Black Ultra HD 4K LED 3D HDTV:

I felt obliged to leave a comment on this product. Very simply put, this tv is beautiful and I couldn't be happier with the picture. But considering this is a smart TV, it is anything but smart and intuitive. It seems there was a good amount of consideration put into how the interface should work but in my opinion just poor delivery.
Aside from the interface, the other problem I had was with the remote. I had the TV synced with my DirectTv and it worked for a few days. The next thing I know my Dtv guide didn't not work correctly using my Sony remote and I also now have to use my Dtv and Sony remote which I find irritating.

Something is wrong

By 

from 60067

The television delivers incredibly beautiful pictures that sadly are interrupted by occasional all black screens where picture and sound are lost . This makes it all but impossible to watch something without eye irritation and an eventual headache. I am going to have my cable company check their connection to make sure that they aren't the culprits,, but in the meantime I can only rate the television 4 stars which under the circumstances I think is being generous. Obviously if the problem can be isolated and fixed in the very near term a new star will be born. If this situation cannot be fixed fast, I will return the product and cancel cable. Another irritation is that the bulk of the help system is online. If a TV doesn't work, online help doesn't work either. A detailed manual can, and should, be available in print and included with the product.

A great TV if you are an expert

By 

from 84054

The picture and sound are fantastic. Figuring out how to use the many features is not. I have 30+ years with computers and electronics. The menu navigation is confusing, help and hint information is very lacking, and some features (such as mirroring a picture from a Windows 8.1 PC) do not work.

    Comments about Sony 65" Black Ultra HD 4K LED 3D HDTV:

    The picture quality is unbelievable. While the availability of videos/movies with 4K content is still limited, the up scaling of regular 1080 HD is still better. The scrolling remote takes awhile to get used to and is really limited on what you can do comparing to regular remote, but it does allow you to get by with most of the major functions. The price is high compared to other 4K TVs, but Sony brand itself when it comes to consumer electronics is well worth it.

    Service and delivery comments:

    The item arrived as described. Unfortunately the delivery can only happen on weekday, and I have to take off work during the weekday to arrange the delivery.

    Comments about Sony 65" Black Ultra HD 4K LED 3D HDTV:

    Huge leap up from our 8 year old XBR. My only gripes are glare from the windows in the room during daytime and the inability to control Sonos volume from the included touch pad remote. Otherwise its amazing.
