Sony X930C 4K 3D Android TV Review

Anyone looking to jump into the 4K experience should certainly consider the Sony X930C series of televisions. This series of televisions offers the latest technological advances in picture and sound. You also get Smart TV capabilities to provide even more services through your television. The series is offered in different sizes and is affordably priced for all the capabilities it provides. Although it might be on the higher end of the cost of some televisions, this Sony Series lives up to the motto – you get what you pay for.
Sony X930C
The Sony X930C was made to provide an incredible viewing experience along with amazing sound. Sony’s technology includes a 4K processor that analyzes anything you watch and upscales it to the best possible 4K resolution. In case you didn’t know, that means the resolution is four times better than Full HD! The upscale to 4K isn’t just television either. The processor also provides 4K viewing for DVD, Blu-ray, and 4K streaming video.

The XBR65X930C is the most popular TV model in the X930C Series. This television also includes new sound technology. With Sony’s High-Resolution Audio, you will hear every details of what you are watching. The sound that comes from the television is fine tuned to provide a listening experience that literally surrounds you. The Sony X930C even has front-facing woofers and subwoofers to provide a full range of sounds while cutting out the distortion of mid and high sounds.

The Smart features of the XBR65X930C and XBR75X940C TVs are just as impressive as the picture and sound. During our review we found the Android TV to be just like using a Smart Phone. With Sony’s Android TV you can perform voice searches, share digital photos with family and friends, have access to many different apps and can connect accessories like game controllers. PlayStation users will love the ability to stream games directly to this television. All you have to do is connect a DUALSHOCK 4 controller to the TV and you’ll be playing PlayStation 3 games in no time.

The X930C also has design and functionality in all of its features. The wedge shape of the television is designed to save space and can be made to sit on wide or narrow stands, depending on the size of your television stand. The screen is thin and flush, two features that are needed to optimal viewing. The speaker capacity was upgraded over previous television, which enhances sound to give you the feeling you are in a large movie theater.

Overall – Cons and Pros
  1. The only “con” we discovered is there tends to be a limited viewing angle. Sitting right in front of the X930C gives the best picture, but moving off to the side degrades the picture.
  1. The picture is the greatest “pro” for the X930C. During our review the picture was very bright and clear.
  2. The sound is also great. The larger, front-facing speakers really direct the sound right at you.

Conclusion
Our review of the X930C showed Sony really stepped up their game with this series of televisions. The features and technology packed into the television are near the top of the industry.

You can expect incredible picture and sound with this television. Sony’s 4K processor does an admirable job upscaling regular video to 4K resolution. The flat design that flares towards the bottom of the TV is also fashionable and functional since it opened room for larger speakers, which equals better sound in this case.

You will enjoy the Smart TV functionality, particularly the ability to use voice commands. If you have a PlayStation, expect to spend more time on your favorite games. The graphics are incredible on this 4K television and the ability to stream games directly to the TV is very convenient.

If you want super crisp video with theater-level sound and all the benefits of a Smart TV, the Sony X930C (and especially 65 Inch XBR65X930C model) should be near the top of your list.
