Only one disappointment with the supplied remote as it's very basic voice remote (hence 1 less star) I would have liked Sony to provide a better premium remote with backlit as standard for such a premium tv. The TV looks and feels premium all-around. The TV is a mix of metal and plastic. The Sony A8H is an excellent TV for watching sports. Additionally, like all OLED TVs, there's a risk of permanent burn-in. KD-55A85 03/01/2021 by Dazio (United Kingdom) Verified Purchaser Verified. Brilliant picture and sound. I’ll leave the techy stuff for others but this is a brilliant piece of kit. The most disappointing thing is that having the 4k picture resolution is squandered, because the TV will not play UHD from BBC iPlayer. I would edit this review in the future or write another once there has been a firmware for this.

Best purchase of a TV and although expensive worth every penny. Website use T&CsTerms and conditions of salesPrivacy policy. Enabling Smooth Gradation removes most of it; however, there's still some banding in the greens. Hi all, I am looking to purchase a 55 inch OLED and narrowed down my choice to Sony A8H (2020) and Sony A9G (2019). It has a low input lag, fast response time, and excellent viewing angles, so the edges of the screen won't look washed out if you sit up close. Update 07/15/2020: We've retested the motion interpolation with different content, and noticed a good amount of artifacts in scenes that have a lot of movement. The A8G has slightly better viewing angles, but not by much. I’ve been waiting for this TV to go on sale! Any kind of content can be upconverted to lifelike 4K resolution with Sony’s unique features. Also, when playing through my Sony PlayStation, the tv doesn’t recognize the input. Even though the Sony A8H doesn't have an HDMI 2.1 port, it supports eARC, which lets you send high-quality audio over an HDMI connection. It supports most common resolutions, except for 1440p, and it can display chroma 4:4:4 properly. There's only a little bit of banding in the darker shades of gray, green, and red. A couple of more reviews have dropped for Sony’s A8H OLED TV, following some that came out last month. Our unit of the A8H was manufactured in April 2020, you can see the label here. KD-55A8 09/01/2021 by Covid was planned (United Kingdom) Verified Purchaser Verified. The A8H can interpolate lower frame rate content up to 120fps to make motion look smoother. The EOTF follows the PQ curve almost perfectly, with only some brightening in darker scenes to avoid crushing. Clearly some issues here since I have to restart my TV now to make it work. Also sound is improved with the Sony sound bar. Love my new TV, easy to set up and great to use, picture is fantastic ! Design is appealing to the eye, yet the function is impeded with flaw. The screen has a warp both vertical and horizontal. If you're concerned about the risks of permanent burn-in, then check out the Sony X950H, which is an LED TV. Decent SDR peak brightness. Lower resolution content from cable TV is upscaled well, without any artifacts.

If you choose to wall-mount it, it's compatible with Sony's SU-WL855 slim wall-mount. The television quickly identified the Wi-Fi connections available and using the simple keyboard designs allowed for swift input. It can flicker at 60Hz or 120Hz, regardless of the refresh rate of the content, meaning that you can set it to 60Hz or 120Hz flickering in 60fps content, and the same goes for 120fps content. Im so angry I wasted money on this garbage. Fantastic sound and picture. I Bought this TV and it stopped working 5 weeks after I bought it. The opening scene in 'Queens Gambit' produced 2 vertical straight black bands. I should have bought the LG OLED Let me finish by saying Ive only ever bought Sony, but that will now change. The button layout hasn't changed that much, and there are still shortcuts to Netflix and Google Play. To enable motion interpolation, set Cinemotion to 'Auto' and adjust the Smoothness slider to your preference. Also, the A8H has a much faster response time. Update 07/22/2020: We've retested the BFI and can confirm that when playing 24p content, the flickering frequency is 96Hz with the Clearness slider set to '1' or '2', and setting it to '3' lowers it to 48Hz. The frequency response of the Sony A8H is good. Having read all the reviews about oled tv's, I actually can't see what all the fuss is about. The A1 and A9G looked fab but as they kept getting better and cheaper, I waited and waited. The Sony A8H is an excellent TV for watching movies in HDR. Like all OLEDs, it's able to produce perfect blacks, and it doesn't have any issues with blooming since there's no backlight. Amazing picture. Its viewing angles are excellent, so you can walk around doing chores while watching and still get a good-looking picture. Some serious look at the support and documentation is needed. General inquiries and content search work properly, but we weren't able to change certain settings, such as the brightness of the TV. Like the X950H, it has a digital room correction feature that automatically adjusts the frequency response based on your room's acoustics. The Sony A9S OLED and the Sony A8H OLED are nearly identical. Loads of settings, comes with Android TV/ Apple Airplay/ Google Assistant is just an icing on cake. It has a higher SDR and HDR peak brightness, it has better pre-calibration color accuracy, and its input lag is much lower, making it a better option for gaming.

I had my last TV for 15 years, there was nothing up with it just decided to upgrade and WOW so glad I did!! There's a risk of permanent burn-in, but it shouldn't be an issue if you watch a varied content. The Sony A8H OLED is marginally better than the Sony A8G OLED for most uses. Outstanding gray uniformity. KD-65A8 08/01/2021 by Bob61 (United Kingdom) Verified Purchaser Verified, I bought the Sony 65” A8 OLED two weeks ago and I’m so glad I did, the quality of the picture and sound is amazing, the Sony 55” 4K ultra HDR tv I replaced was really good quality but A8 OLED is at a different class, xbr55a8h 08/01/2021 by Berry M (USA) Verified Purchaser Verified.

This means that viewers with seating placed off-axis will still be able to watch TV without any of the issues that degrade picture quality when viewed from wide angles. Secondly, the so called back lit remote is not back lit. Sony’s first two quote-unquote PS5-ready TVs are the X900H and the Z8H, both of which are LED TVs that can display 4K120 content (or will be able to eventually, anyway). It allows you to turn the TV On/Off, change the channel, change the input source, adjust the volume, and restart the TV. It has a fast response time that results in very little motion blur, and it delivers a great HDR experience thanks to its high peak brightness and wide color gamut. It does a good job in slow-moving scenes, but unfortunately, it introduces a lot of artifacts when the action gets intense. Like all OLED TVs, the response time is near-instantaneous, which results in almost no blur trail behind fast-moving objects. You’ve found a tv you’ll be more than happy with. Overall VERY happy. There's a bit of temporary image retention, but it usually goes away after a few minutes.

The sound quality was a surprise, even though we had selected this model that uses the screen as a speaker for its clarity, the overall dynamic range and volume is impressive. There's almost no dirty screen effect, which is great for watching sports. The review has been updated. KD-65A8 05/01/2021 by OLED_Test (United Kingdom) Verified Purchaser Verified. There's a bit of stutter when watching lower frame rate content, which is caused by the TV's near-instantaneous response time. That said, it's a very decent upgrade from the A8G.
