|So realistic you might forget you're just watching TV. It's the best picture we've ever created, where details like individual blades of grass come to life with laser-sharp precision and the most natural color imaginable. Stunning images are produced using our most advanced X-Reality™ PRO technology and the ultra-thin TV design is achieved by incorporating Corning® Gorilla® Glass for the seamless look of edge-to-edge glass.|
X-Reality™ PRO Picture EngineThis is picture quality so lifelike it's like looking through a window. Each scene in everything you watch-HD movies, sports, even YouTube™ clips and home movies-is presented with unprecedented detail, and astonishing color as Sony's exclusive X-Reality™ PRO picture engine draws on its database of real patterns, shapes and textures to display our most lifelike picture ever.
Peak PerformanceExperience Sony's best picture quality and extraordinary contrast with full-array local dimming technology. This innovative technology consists of an array of LED lights that adjust the bright and dark levels in each area of the screen for more precise control of the picture.
Our clearest picture everWhen you watch a kickoff at the stadium, the ball doesn't blur from left to right. Recreating natural motion with reduced judder and less blur, Motionflow™ XR 960 helps you see each end-over-end rotation by taking motion clarity beyond refresh rates, which are only measured in Hz, to quadruple the motion effect so you see everything as if you were there.
Tough, yet beautifulOnly Sony has it.7Corning's exclusive Gorilla® Glass lets you enjoy an incredibly durable, remarkably lightweight, frameless design with a seamless, sophisticated look. Paired with the OptiContrast™ panel, Gorilla Glass helps boost contrast and brightness while minimizing unwanted light reflections.

The Sony XBR-HX950 series produces deeper black levels than any current LCD or plasma TV, giving excellent overall picture quality. It evinces accurate color, offers plenty of video-processing options, and can properly handle 1080p/24 sources. It also has a beautiful, thin-profile exterior design with Gorilla Glass, and its Internet suite includes numerous streaming services and widgets as well as built-in Wi-Fi. Its 3D image shows minimal crosstalk.
The extremely expensive XBR-HX950 shows some blooming artifacts, and its picture deteriorates more noticeably than usual when seen from off-angle. Its menu and Internet service design is lackluster, and Sony does not include 3D glasses. When displaying 3D, the image flickers when dejudder is turned off, and it deteriorates rapidly when you tilt your head.
Although it's priced higher and performs worse than the best plasmas, the Sony XBR-HX950 is still one of the top-performing LED TVs ever.
