Best Sony Bravia X90J Mid-Range TV
There is no doubt in our mind that, for gamers, the new Sony X90J is one of the best TVs out there.
It has excellent image quality, thanks in part to a new Cognitive XR processor rolled out on Sony’s best 2021 sets, which provides excellent scaling and contrast control. The X90J also sports the new smart Google TV platform, for easy setup and broad app support, as well as the benefits of Google Cast from Android devices. There is also Dolby Vision HDR and Dolby Atmos audio.
When it comes to gaming, the X90J has a 120Hz panel with 4K resolution and two full HDMI 2.1 ports for your Xbox Series X and PS5, with VRR (variable refresh rate) and ALLM (mode automatic low latency, for less than 10ms lag) to really improve your gaming experience. Just make sure to head to the picture settings and turn on “Enhanced Format” for the selected HDMI port, otherwise you will not benefit from its 2.1 specification.
There are still a few lingering issues, including average off-axis viewing and difficulty with direct daylight – and the X90J will no doubt be beaten by the capabilities of its upgraded X95J model for a slight increase in cost. Still, the Sony X90J manages to deliver exceptional performance for a reasonable price.
