Sony XG95 (X950G) Review and comparison with Samsung Q70R



The Sony XG95 sits above the continuing XF90 in the higher Sony LCD TV range with the Master Series ZF9 being discontinued. The XG95 uses the same X1 Ultimate chipset that the Master Series sets use, but the 55 and 65-inch XG95 models don’t have the X-Wide Angle technology, that is reserved for 75-inch and above, which means the contrast performance is strong from viewing directly but suffers once you get off-axis to the XG95 It uses a 50-zone Full Array Local Dimming set up behind a VA LCD panel with Sony’s propriety local dimming algorithm. We run some side-by-side comparisons against a Samsung Q70R which has the same number of dimming zones and is similar in many ways and £100 cheaper in the UK. We also put the XG95 through our full testing regime over a number of weeks. Please note that due to a lack of dynamic range within the camera, camera settings, TV settings and the fact you are not watching on a monitor that can show the true picture quality seen in person, no judgment should be made using the footage in the video. The review sample was provided by Crampton and Moore and is a brand new sealed retail unit of the 55-inch XG95. You can support our reviews by following the contact details in the video or below. Call Richard on 01302 365760 or email richard.jones@cramptonandmoore.co.uk and mention AVForums. We will always be transparent about who supplies a TV for review and the supplier (whether it is the manufacturer, distributor or retailer) never has any influence or input into our reviews. We will never accept payment to review a product as we insist on complete independence in our reviewing.
If a review is made possible by a retailer loaning it to us, we will state this within the review. We do this so that if a viewer is so inclined, they can use that retailer in return for helping to make our reviews possible. We will NEVER mention a retailer in a video where they have not supplied the product for review, or otherwise, intentionally mislead the viewer in any way.
