Our opinion Sony XD8505 (veredict):

Our opinion about the Sony XD8505 is not good. This TV is not cheap and is considered high-end so that the image quality should be excellent. The problem is that Sony XD8505 riding IPS panel so if you can watch movies in the dark blacks are not as dark as they should. On the other hand the IPS panel offers wider viewing angle, ideal for large families or if we see the TV from the side. Our recommendation is to look for a model LG if you decided on a high-end TV with IPS panel and a Samsung / Panasonic if you want a TV with VA panel.
