VERDICT
Clearly above average. Only a couple of issues keep this from being best in class.

PROS

  • The X930D Series sets handle HDR content well, delivering deep blacks and impressive brightness.
  • These TVs do a fine job of upscaling lower-resolution standard and high-definition images to 4K resolution.
  • The X930D Series sets are among the few new sets that still provide 3D viewing capability for fans of that format.

CONS

  • The sets have noticeable backlight uniformity issues, with certain areas of the screen looking lighter than others, especially when displaying HDR content.
  • Input lag is relatively high on the X930D Series sets, making it a less than stellar choice for serious gamers.
  • Like many other LCD TVs, the X930D Series' picture contrast and color fade when viewed from off-center seats.
Sony’s X930D Series models excel at displaying 4K and High Dynamic Range content, and they do an impressive job of upscaling HD and SD images to Ultra HD resolution. They also provide 3D display capability--a feature that’s starting to disappear from many new TVs. The ultra thin design and the borderless picture make for an attractive product. Serious gamers might be put off by the X930D Series’ relatively high input lag. The series includes 55-inch and 65-inch sets.

In an otherwise superb TV as far as display technology goes, the X930D offers up a downright poor grey uniformity, with edges that are considerably darker than the center of the display space on the TV.

While some have expressed concern over "flashlighting," I found the head-on, eye-level black levels to be quite good, only showing the TV's edge-lit nature at extreme viewing angles.

The X930D is a remarkably thin TV — too thin to accommodate a full array local dimming (FALD) back-light system — and while that may understandably raise flags with some videophiles, Sony has developed an edge-mounted back-light system with local dimming which it hopes will make believers out of skeptics...
