Like most of the other 4K and 8K TVs that have been available for more than a year, the Sony KD-65XD8599 is not 3D.

TVs which are 3D that might be worth looking at include the TX-50DX780 (£1,343.42), or the TX-58DX902 both from Panasonic; or the Sony KD-65XD9305 (£1,199.99).

Very Slow High Frequency Rate

The high frequency rates of comparable spec TVs that were launched around the same time as this TV range from 50Hz to 3,000Hz, and the average high frequency rate is 450Hz. With a high frequency rate of only 100 hertz, the Sony KD-65XD8599 has one of the slower high frequency rates amongst TVs of this age.

We compared all the other 100Hz refresh rate televisions to this TV and we think the LG 55EG920 (£1,499) which has better reviews is also worth considering.

TVs with a faster high frequency rate that might be worth looking at include the LG 65UH770 (£1,229.99) (200Hz) which is also cheaper.
