Sony KD55AF8BU review

Key features

Reviewed

OLED TVs, like Sony's new 55-inch KDD55AF8BU, are said to be capable of unparalleled contrast and blacks levels, along with excellent, blur free motion, whether you're watching Formula 1 or something more sedate. But OLED displays aren't a sure sign that a TV will be a Best Buy. Just like LCD TVs they don't all come out of our tests with a Best Buy rosette. Will Sony's second-generation OLED deliver the goods or come up short? Here's our in-depth review.
