    Sentiment Score 54%
    Reviewers from rtings have found the following***:
    The Sony X850G is a good TV for mixed usage. It's a great choice for sports, TV shows, or video games thanks to its fairly wide viewing angles and fast response time. However, due to its IPS panel, its contrast and black uniformity are poor, so it may not be the best for watching movies in dark rooms.

    • Wide viewing angles
    • Decently wide color gamut
    • Excellent reflection handling
    Cons
