Unique Sony processing power makes the Sony BRAVIA KD-55X85KU stand out from its rivals.

Sony 4K HDR Processor X1 for superb picture control
With Sony’s X1 processor at its heart, this Sony 55 inch TV delivers the very best from 4K HDR images. The processor enhances all aspects of the image, including colour, contrast and clarity, to give optimised depth and realism. Working with the TRILUMINOS PRO display, colours are natural and authentic, helping the TV deliver ‘real world’ colour.

120Hz panel with Motionflow XR for super-smooth flow
Using a true 120Hz panel gives this Sony a faster refresh rate for smoother, more natural motion. Sony’s Motionflow XR technology enhances the panel’s natural refresh advantage, to give pin-sharp detail, even when the action is fast-paced. Ideal for sports, action movies and gaming, 120Hz and Motionflow XR make a big difference to keeping up with the action – without losing the detail.

The perfect partner for your PS5
Combine this BRAVIA TV with your PS5 and get a fully optimised experience. Whether you’re gaming or watching a movie on your PS5, the TV automatically adjusts to optimise the picture and settings. Auto HDR Tone Mapping and Auto Genre Picture Mode mean your PS5 is served better than ever by this Sony TV.

X-Balanced speakers for sonic clarity
Designed to enhance both the sound and style of this Sony TV, X-Balanced speakers use a unique design to enhance the clarity of speech and music, whilst keeping the cabinet sleek and slim. For the best in cinema sound, the sound is also compatible with Dolby Atmos audio.

Sound optimisation
The Sony BRAVIA KD-55X85KU detects objects within the room and intelligently adapts the sound. Soft furnishings, such as heavy curtains can dull the room’s sound, for example, so the Sony optimises the sound to compensate for this. Just as it does to overcome any obstacles that may be in the way of the TV – such as a coffee table.

Works with BRAVIA CAM*
The optional BRAVIA CAM (extra cost option), is the innovative new camera that does so much more than video calls. BRAVIA CAM recognises where viewers are sitting and optimises the picture and sound to suit. It also facilitates the use of gesture control. All this plus it still functions with your TV to make it the ultimate device for video calls.

*Gesture control and auto optimisation function due later in 2022

Google TV**
Using Google’s world-class interface, Google TV makes accessing this Sony TV’s smart features a breeze. Customise your home screen with the apps you use the most, enjoy recommendations, curate your movie nights and even add to your watchlist via your smartphone – Google TV makes sense of Smart TV. You can also access the Sony’s picture, sound and other TV settings – keeping all you need under one ‘roof’.

**This Sony BRAVIA TV features the Youview catch-up TV service, which includes BBC iPlayer, ITV Hub, All4 & My5.

Hands-free voice control your TV
Featuring Google Assistant built-in, this Sony TV effortlessly becomes part of your Google/Android home network. The built-in mic lets you search, hands-free. If you prefer to use a different platform, the Sony is compatible, too. Apple AirPlay and Homekit compatibility makes it possible to integrate with your Apple system. Support for Amazon Alexa devices also means you can voice control via your existing Alexa device.

Don’t miss out on the action. With the Sony BRAVIA KD-55X85KU you get to see every detail.

Please note, this Smart TV features third party Apps. These Apps may be modified or withdrawn at any time. There may also be a delay in launching some of the featured Apps.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good TV We have had this new TV for 10 days and we are very pleased with the quality of the product. We have had SONY TV's for several years and we were updating to include the FreeSat connection as our previous FreeSat box was out of date. The only issue we have is with the remote control unit which is not as easy to use as with previous SONY TV's.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All You Could Want From A TV [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The TV arrived well packed in a sturdy box. Inside, with a little help, the TV was quite easy to remove. The TV stand, plug lead, two legs and remote controls (there are also two of them) were securely packed within the white packaging material. As it appears to be normal nowadays, I initially found the instructions for this TV hard to get to grips with. As I’m a pensioner, maybe it’s my age! There was a ‘Set Up Guide’ which explained how to put the legs on and the location of the various connector housings. In the end I chose to ignore the initial set up instructions and mounted the TV on a wall using my experience and common sense and had no problems at all. While I attached the wall bracket to the TV I fitted the legs supplied to support the TV. They are a simple ‘push in’ fit. The Sony support site has more detailed instructions including a Start Up Guide, Wall Bracket Mounting, Safety Instructions and so on. I was very impressed with the build quality and design of the TV and it’s general appearance. There was hardly any rim at all round the screen which gave it a very attractive sleek look. The initial set up is quite simply a matter of following the on-screen instruction after switching the TV on, via one of the remote controls. I used the numerical TV remote control for the initial TV set up and found it quite easy and quick to do. The only thing I needed to do was to turn the volume up a little more. There is also an option in the set-up to select the correct sound quality for wall mounting, or stand mounting, depending on where you have located the TV at home. The sound from the speakers was so good I see no need at the moment to add a soundbar. On switching the TV on the first thing I noticed was the superb picture quality and sound. The colours were sharp, vibrant and true to life, which I find is now typical of Sony TV’s. There’s also a built-in light sensor that automatically adjust the picture according to the room light conditions. To set up Google TV I found the other remote control (with built in microphone) simple to use and I had an easy Google ‘set up’ because I have a Google account which I already use. If you have no Google account it is a simple matter of following the on-screen instructions, going through all the blurb and download the app to your smart phone. Netflix, Prime Video, Disney and YouTube channels are all available to use at the touch of the appropriate button on the remote control. Don’t worry if you have no Google account because you can still receive YouTube, BBC iPlayer, Netflix etc, without one. The built-in microphone on the remote control seemed to work well when I used it and understood my verbal instructions. If you have other add-ons like a soundbar, Blu-ray/DVD player etc. there are plenty connections on the back left side of the TV. The connections are just accessible if the TV is mounted on a wall. There is an On/Off button on the centre front of the TV, just below the Sony label. I mention this because it took me a while to realise it was there. This is a great user-friendly TV, easy to set up with superb picture and sound quality straight from the box. There are no fiddly adjustments required before enjoying the viewing experience. I would certainly, without hesitation, recommend it as a great buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Performance for a good price! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This TV has replaced an ageing 32inch Sony Bravia and the difference is night and day! Design & Build Its a fairly standard design for a TV of this type. Nice thin bezels - they are around 1cm. Given the size of the screen it looks very good. The TV itself is also fairly thing - somewhere in the region of 7cm. This isnt the thinnest in this price point, but is still perfectly suitable for wall mounting. Nice sturdy stands - no worry of the screen toppling over. However, the stands are big, and take up quite a lot of space. You can also choose from a couple of different places to mount the stands to the TV to help suit the surface it will be stood on. A nice feature here is some clips which attach to the stands to help keep any cables tidy. Image Quality Overall im impressed with the image quality. Its nice and bright, blacks are good and the contrast is very good. Lots of options to tweak the display to suit your own tastes too. Of course this is also a HDR display and will automatically switch to modes such as Dolby Vision if the source supports them. Viewing angle seems pretty good - you need to be quite far off centre before you start seeing problems. Sound Quality A basic 2 channel setup here, but with X balanced speakers to help improve the bass. Sound is not bad at all, and does go quite loud without any distortion. Ease of Use This is a Google TV based experience and its very slick. Everything moves along nicely in the menus with no lag. Voice control via the remote is a handy feature! All the usual apps work well - Neflix, Disney+, Prime etc. The remote also has dedicated buttons for Youtube, Netflix, Disney+ and Prime which is very handy! Overall Thoughts For its price this is a very nice TV with a great screen, decent sound and some nice features. Are there better TVs out there? Yes, but i dont think anyone would be disappointed with this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great TV. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Great TV. Nice and easy to set up.5 minutes from out of the box to watching TV. Love the adjustable legs fire the stand so it's fits on a standard sized unit. From initial viewing great picture and sound. Easy to use apps and easy setting layout. Linked to Sky Q with ease and crystal clear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thoughtful design met Crystal Clear Display This TV is blowing my mind away. The flat design makes it ideal for a sleek wall mount for my living room. The edge-to-edge display has beautified the living room too - it's gorgeous. And the 85-inch screen gave the wall a run for its size. Being a smart and an android TV changed the game for me. For example, there is an option to connect a TV Box. I realised I do not need any TV box at all. All the LATEST movies in the cinema right now are on this TV without any other connections outside a home Wi-Fi connection. Connecting to Netflix, Google TV, Prime Videos and Disney Plus is seamless. The TV package has 2 Remote controls. One for the TV set up (and general settings), and the second one has a single touch that takes you straight to Netflix, Prime Videos, YouTube and Disney Plus. This second remote control became the most used after the initial setup. It controls the Soundbar System as well as the TV itself. With My Sony HT-RT4 600W Soundbar System, the Cinema is finally at home. I have looked forward to this moment in a long time. Security-wise, I am totally impressed. With kids around, setting age-related restrictions is as easy as ABC. Individual apps can be restricted, even the entire TV can be locked, and sweetest part is that VIEWING times (hours of view) can be set. I have stopped talking about screen times to my kids (it does not always go unchallenged) but with Sony -X85K, the talks are over. The TV simply goes off after viewing hours has been reached; and when they try to bring it back on, it was locked, case closed! It feels good, haha. Gaming on this TV is an out-of-this world experience, especially with my Sony Inzone 7 headphone. It's just brilliant, with crystal clear details. I was taken aback with the internal memory, which is just 4.4GB. However, I attached an external flash drive, and the TV allowed me to wedge it as an added internal storage (instead of being a removable type). I now have 34.4GB total memory for apps and games. I totally recommend this TV where home security, cinematic experience for homes, and gaming matters.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The quality is Second to None [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I unboxed the TV when it arrived (I had to ask my dad who was visiting to give me a hand) and we both said the quality of the product is amazing. It even has metal “feet” rather than plastic which i have had on ever TV I have owned! Because it has Google built in, you get the option the set-up using the Google Home App which made things quick and easy if you have a Google account and are the slightest bit “Tech Savvy”. Once i was fully connected and had registered the TV etc, the first thing that was on was the Opening Ceremony for the Commonwealth Games so I got the full Bravia Experience and the picture & sound quality was perfect. I adjusted the settings slightly to suit my viewing colour-wise and I cannot fault it. The sound quality is amazing and, even when you turn it up, there is no distortion. I’ve mastered the Google home app so have set the TV up in my kitchen and I can build my network of devices around it. I would most definitely choose a Sony TV again and, for the price, the quality of the X85 is most definitely second to none.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unparalleled picture and sound packed into TV [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] A well needed replacement to my outgoing KD-49X8309C, the Sony X85K immediately boasts presence in my living room. The 55 inches makes so much difference on its own, and then you turn it on. As an openly honest Sony fan, it was very easy for me to navigate through the set up screens, connecting to wifi and also setting up what devices connected to what HDMI ports. The X85K has 4 HDMI with two of them supporting 120hz. This was a fantastic bonus having two slots capable of high quality. I've used it playing Destiny 2 crucible and you can see the absolute clarity of everything as if you're seeing things in new eyes for the first time. Let's not forget to mention activating HDR. The colours are more sharper and much brighter and darker colours are more clear and precise. Bear in mind this not the top of the range product but it packs such a great punch in its class. The internal sound has an equaliser too. So love this feature, and it can be put to great use if you don't have an amp. For the kids, it comes packed with the usual streaming packages or apps and if they are not already preloaded, the great internal drive installed will allow you to download very quickly what you require. Another great thing to note with this product is that it comes with two remotes. One with all the buttons and numbers and functions, and a smaller one with key buttons on. Couldn't let this gesture not go unnoticed. Naturally unless you need the main controller, it saves it being hammered. Very well thought of especially when you have kids demanding to switch between streaming channels. The other great feature to note is the external drive input. This means you can attach an external drive and record! Glad it has been passed on. Overall, this TV is from my perspective a fantastic leap up with all the features I need for gaming and my kids need for streaming. I would absolutely recommend this Sony product.
