Sony XEL-1

4 January 2010
  • Conclusion: Rarely is a test quite this interesting — or ambivalent. On the one hand, the miniature Sony impresses with perfect black and extraordinary motion-clarity. On the other hand, the low resolution disappoints and stops the screen displaying that sought-after ‘perfect picture’.
  • Pros: Extremely high motion-clarity., Excellent colors., Top-notch 24p reproduction., Sensational contrast when viewed in the dark.
  • Cons: Very (!) small picture., Resolution is too low., Way too expensive.

Personal Electronics buzz
20 October 2008
  • Excerpt: Sony's XEL1 11-inch OLED digital TV must be seen to appreciate the difference compared to LCD or Plasma technology. OLED shows the true color of a leaf and its veins with true to nature detail and shadowing. How can you describe in words a million- to-one contrast ratio.

  • Excerpt: Sometimes you can see the future in a device. Well, we see it in the diminutive XEL-1, with its first-ever consumer-ready OLED TV screen . Like an old-school jumbotron, each pixel creates its own light, eliminating the need for bulky backlighting.

Good Gear Guide.au

  • Pros: The best picture quality we’ve seen -- absolute blacks, good colour saturation and control
  • Cons: Unattainably expensive, reflective screen, non-HD resolution
