Ratings suck but for a 75 inch tv in the bathroom you can’t really complain about the price . Guess the chip shortage is easing up . If this was pre ps5 days I might have grabbed one. Seems to be available all over Toronto

Consumer Reports' take:

Highs

Excellent color accuracy
Wide viewing angle

Lows

Picture quality below par
Very limited HDR performance
Strong display non-uniformity

CR's Take

This 75-inch LCD (LED) 4K UHD TV from Sony is internet enabled, and uses the "Google TV" operating system. It includes a built-in Google Assistant virtual assistant. Sony claims this model will also work with external Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa, and Apple Siri HomeKit devices. It includes an ATSC 3.0 tuner for receiving "Next-Gen TV" signals. CR’s tests found its viewing angle was wide, but the picture quality was generally below par, and its HDR performance was very limited.

Detailed Test Results

HD PICTURE QUALITY HD picture quality fell short, overall. On the plus side, reproduction of fine HD image detail was Excellent. Color accuracy was Excellent, so colors, especially flesh tones, look very natural and lifelike. Contrast—the difference between the darkest blacks and brightest whites—was Good, so images had some depth, but it was not the best. Image brightness was Very Good (with the backlight control turned up), so the picture was well suited for a brighter room—a lower setting is recommended for a dimmer viewing environment. Its reproduction of smooth edges on image content with minimal "jaggies" (jagged edges) was Very Good for "up-converted" HD-to-UHD images. Deinterlacing of 1080i video, and film-mode detection of 1080i film-based content were both Excellent. On the minus side, the black levels were overly bright, unfortunately, worse than many TVs. There was a strong display non-uniformity in our test sample—it appeared as brighter cloudy areas that were very distracting in dark scenes—the severity can vary from model to model.

4K UHD PICTURE QUALITY Overall 4K UHD picture quality was decent, overall. In our UHD testing, we played native-4K movies and test videos (non HDR) thru the TV’s HDMI input, and found their image detail was all there. For color, contrast and black level, the TV performed similarly to its HD picture quality.

HIGH DYNAMIC RANGE (HDR) PERFORMANCE HDR performance had very limited effectiveness. In HDR mode this TV only allowed us to optimize the Brightness and Gamma picture settings—all other settings were as they were for the standard-dynamic range (SDR) HD picture. In our tests, the display’s lack of high peak brightness capability (by HDR standards) limited its ability to show the benefits of our HDR 4K content. It could not reveal much contrast between the moderately bright and very bright highlights, while the brightness levels in the mid-to-lower tones, like those in an indoor scene, were preserved. It did a good job reproducing a greater range of nuanced shadow detail, from black to white, with no obvious banding within the gradually shaded areas, but we noted some loss of detail within the highlights of the brightest areas. Brightly colored objects remained nicely saturated.

VIEWING ANGLE This Sony model has a wide viewing angle overall, better than that of most TVs. It will provide fairly consistent picture quality, with fewer problems than most TVs, for typical viewing conditions—say, if your family is seated across a long sectional or in chairs off to the sides. Our examination at various viewing angles indicated reasonably good consistency. In our tests, the picture did show moderate dimming from the sides. With dark scenes this model doesn’t fare quite as well. When viewed from the sides, the depth of black levels varied depending on our vertical position. As we moved closer to the screen this limitation became even more apparent, especially if seated on the floor looking upward where black levels brightened significantly. When we viewed the TV from the sides the image had some loss of quality. Lastly, we viewed the image from above and below center screen, and saw Excellent vertical viewing angle performance, with no significant changes in color, contrast, and black level.

MOTION BLUR In our motion tests, this Sony TV had Good motion performance, with some blurring, though this model includes Sony’s "Motionflow", a feature designed to reduce motion blur. Although this TV also includes a "Clearness" setting that we found was slightly effective at reducing motion blur, it limited the brightness, so we left that feature switched off.

SOUND QUALITY We got Good sound quality, about average among the models we’ve tested. When watching a blockbuster movie, a concert, or TV show, it can deliver decent performance but just not like the better performers. In our listening evaluations, we found the bass (low frequencies) was moderately deep and provided some sense of fullness, but lacked some definition. Treble (high frequencies) was satisfactory. The overall sound was on the bright side, a bit thin, and a bit closed in. This TV should be OK in rooms large or small, noisy or quiet—we found the speakers could play at a fairly loud volume level and without obvious distortion. Overall, though imperfect, most people would find this sound quality acceptable.

EASE OF USE Consider the TV’s stand is 53 inches wide when choosing a table top to place it on. The remote controls the TV via an RF signal and doesn’t need to be pointed at the TV. It has a simplified design with a reduced set of buttons. It includes all the buttons we typically expect, like channel-up/down, mute, and source-input buttons. The remote has a microphone for accessing a built-in voice assistant feature. It also has dedicated buttons for streaming Disney+, Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, and YouTube.

INTERNET FEATURES This TV provides internet functionality via its "Google TV" portal, with access to a library of applications from the Google Play Store. Movie streaming services that can be downloaded to this TV, or are built-in, include Netflix, YouTube, Amazon Prime Video, Hulu, Disney, Apple TV and HBO Max—and these can be streamed in either HD or 4K UHD. It includes a built-in Google Assistant, which allows you to use natural speech to ask questions, launch applications, and search programming by talking to the remote. Claimed support for external voice assistants (not built in to the TV) include Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, and Apple Siri HomeKit.

CONNECTIONS This model has four HDMI inputs. It also has two USB ports, an optical digital audio out, an Ethernet port, WiFi wireless networking, DLNA—to access files within your home network, AirPlay—for sharing media on Apple devices with the TV, and an ATSC 3.0 tuner for receiving "Next-Gen TV" signals.

WHAT’S INCLUDED A printed user manual, a quick start guide, an electronic user guide via the TV’s menu, a remote control with batteries, and a detachable power cord.
