Expert review

The 55-inch KD-55X85J is part of one of Sony’s cheaper 2021 ranges, but still supports Dolby Vision HDR and has a 120Hz screen, which is great news for gamers. If Sony has put this high-end tech into one of its more budget ranges that can only be a good thing. Read our review to see if the X85J’s fancy features are hiding a lack of basic quality.
