Sony Bravia KD65XD7504BU 65-Inch Android 4K HDR Ultra HD Smart LED TV – Amazing picture quality, lots of features

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.

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.

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.

Good quality product and great picture.

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

Every one looking for a great 4k uhd tv i believe one should look no further than sony it’s simply the best and android platform makes it even more futuristic and user friendly.

Excellent tv and easy to wall mount.

Android TV –

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.

Quality of picture is brilliant, lots of features, very light weight and noce design. The only downside is that sometimes it is a bit slow when opening android apps.

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

Make sure this fits
by entering your model number.

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

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.

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.

The clean and simple stand design adds class to any living space whilst hiding cables from view

4K high dynamic range –

4K X-Reality Pro upscale every pixel for remarkable clarity, with Sony 4K everything you watch is highly realistic

  1. Nice looking tv with all the right specs and good picture quality. Unfortunately had to return this a little after a year of use due it refusing to turn on from standby on a daily basis. I really like the android os but it is very sluggish on this tv and quite unresponsive at times. It’s a shame sony couldn’t get this right.

    The on screen guide doesn’t work with the satellite and can’t use the itv player with satellite. Otherwise an excellent picture and a good value tv.

    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.

    Worth the money for the range it is in. Picture is better than i anticipated. The sound is ok but i have a sound bar to compensate. I know people who have paid £300-£400 more for a tv and not as good a quality picture as this sony.

    Endless crashes, really not happy with this at all. Often locks up need to battle to get the thing to do a full reboot which is rather irritating. Pretty poor for an expensive tv.

    I got this during the prime days at half price, which just for that deserves the five stars. (this is for the 2016 model kd65xd7504bu, that amazon some times mixes the reviews)the tv is huge, really, go to a shop and stand next to one, it is massive, but it is not heavy (i assembled the stand and put it up in the tv table with no help). The picture quality is amazing, and when playing 4k content is breathtaking. However there is not much 4k content available out there (amazon video, youtube, netflix), and of coruse, not all their content is 4k, it is just a limited selection. But the tv works great in full hd, which is how your tv channels broadcast. Android tv, which brings a lot of options, but my favourite so far is kodi + nas + hue script to turn your living room into a theatre. Then only problem is that the tv control is slow, it was a bit awkward at first, but when you get used to the tv timings, you know which things can be done instantly and which ones need you to wait for a couple of secondsthe sound is decent. I had read reviews where they complained of the sound, but even thou is not the best in the world, it is not bad.

    65″ of beautiful 4k loveliness for an absolute bargain price through amazon prime.
      1. I bought this product in july whilst it still had the playstation now app advertised on its item page and then found out sony discontinued the service for 2016 tvs in april. . So don’t buy if you were expecting ps now like i was. Also newer models will also have psnow support removed soon.

    1. Bought the 65inch during amazon prime day and i can say that it was the best deal ever. The picture quality is great. Not even watching 4kuhd source but can see the improvement from the last telly i had. Had a bigger than usual sound and the it sounds full and crisp and not like coming out of a box.

    Television is fantastic:in the response to the overall speed of the software it is not slow at all i would rate it higher to the lg solution for example. Making it android opens it up a lot more then the limited number of apps used by the other manufactures. As for the screen picture quality is fantastic. Don’t get me wrong this is no oled and if you are compering this television to a 4-6k model you will be obviously disappointed. For people having here a discussion what is true or not true hdr. Is basically pointless discussion this technology is done differently by different companies and reproduces better or worse results depending on the source. Sound is what can be expected from the television it is not great if you want an awesome sound experience then buy a sound bar or a set of speakers. The only thing that is bad is the remote which is made in a shape of a brick. Overall i am pretty happy with the television. This obviously can change when i will be using the television but for now i am pretty happy with it.

      1. Brought it on amazon prime day. Fantastic quality and a joy to set up. It has all the bells and whistles, much as you come to expect, when buying anything from sony. The picture is on a totally different level to h. And the sound is unbelievable. The remote has a help button on it which will answer any question you want regarding set up or adding other devices.

    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.

      1. Bought this tv on sale for £550, which at the time it seemed like a good deal. When i got it, the picture quality was genuinely good, and i would trust any sony tv to not disappoint in that department. The software, however, is horrendous. After turning the tv on, it takes about 2-3 minutes before it becomes responsive enough in order to use it, or even switch inputs. Sometimes, when frustrated, i will just hold the power button on the remote for ten seconds until the tv reboots the anroid os completely, after which it will become usable again. We also have a soundbar plugged in, but oftentimes we have to explicitly change the audio output in order for it to not play through the tv speakers as well. Again, the picture quality is very good, the hdr also, but i don’t think it’s worth it when you have to deal with garbage software that completely ruins the experience. Having to wait for a good few minutes before the tv is usable is a deal breaker, and if it continues to be like this, even after multiple software updates (the latest being android nougat, 7. 0), i will return it, and go with a different manufacturer, such as lg. Tl;dr: only buy this tv if you have patience.

    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.

      1. 🙂 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 .

    1. 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.

  24. 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.

    On the whole pretty awesome great picture good motion rate low lag for gaming, but the killer selling point for me was having android installed so hey presto into the app store download kodi build in your favourite addons. Apart from one very annoying thing,,using my bose mini soundlink speaker on this ended up having to go through the aux via the earphone connector still sounds great, as even though states bluetooth think will only connect to sony games controllers so sony pretty bad one of you trying to lock the buyer into your goods hence knocked star off for this.
