Sony Z9K vs. Sony A95K vs. Sony X95K TV Comparison Review.jpg

The new 2022 Sony products include Sony's latest TV technology. The newly upgraded Sony Z9K 8K TV with mini LED backlight is probably the best LCD TV you can buy. If the budget is not that high, there is also the 4K Sony X95K as a mini LED option. And the A95K is the first QD-OLED TV that Sony has brought to us. This article will compare these three popular 2022 Sony TVs.

Sony Z9K vs. Sony A95K vs. Sony X95K TV.jpg

1. Appearance

Sony Z9K and last year's Z9J in the appearance of not much difference, the mini LED-backlit LCD panel will not be very thick. This flagship 8K TV features a very thin silver bezel and a stand that tapers to the sides. Because the Sony Z9K is so wide in both sizes 75" and 85", you can mount the stand in three positions to fit your TV table, or to provide space for your soundbar.

The A95K has a very aesthetically pleasing and unique design. The very thin bezel is smartly visible from the front, making the screen flush with the desktop. Its stand can be placed completely at the back, but of course, you can also reverse it to the front to make the TV more wall-mounted.

The Sony X95K uses a similar stand to the Z9K, which you can place at either end of the TV or near the middle so you can place the TV on a narrow TV stand. As with the A95K, the X95K will work with Sony's new Bravia Cam (purchased separately).

2. Picture Quality

Equipped with the Bravia XR processor, the Sony Z9K TV features the exclusive XR Backlight Master Drive algorithm. This algorithm, combined with XR Triluminos Pro's advanced imaging technology, results in brighter and more vibrant TV images. Sony's unique algorithm can effectively place backlight overflow, and it can reach a peak brightness of 4000 nits

The pristine 8K resolution is complemented by stunning Mini LED contrast, making this probably the best image LED TV you can buy(With an adequate budget), the intelligent cognitive processor XR and Sony's exclusive algorithm technology will deliver an unparalleled viewing experience. Its amazing brightness, contrast and color will be good.

QD-OLED panel technology has been long-awaited, and the Sony A95K TV lives up to that expectation. The use of QD-OLED panels makes the A95K the brightest OLED TV Sony has ever produced. The addition of the Intelligent Cognitive Processor XR and XR Triluminos Max brings a higher level of image quality to the A95K. (What is QD-OLED)

The image level of the X95K is excellent. Also as a mini-LED backlit TV the Sony X95K gives us excellent contrast and brightness. Of course, it is also supported by Sony's powerful intelligent cognitive processor XR.

The X95K is an LCD TV, so even with Sony's X-Wide Angle technology, its off-angle viewing experience will be compromised


The A95K offers significant advantages over regular OLED TVs and positions QD-OLED as a viable bright room/living room alternative to the best LED models.
