Sony XEL-1

  • 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’. Nevertheless, OLED technology promises much for the future — if development keeps going steady, OLED will one day outstrip both plasma and LCD. We await future developments with bated breath.
  • 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.

This amazing Sony OLED television is hamstrung by a tiny screen and a massive price-tag

  • Summary: We could never recommend that anyone purchase this television given its tiny size and incredible price. But as a glimpse into the promising future of OLED televisions, the Sony XEL-1 is technically brilliant.
  • Pros: The best picture quality we’ve seen -- absolute blacks, good colour saturation and control
  • Cons: Unattainably expensive, reflective screen, non-HD resolution
