The new entry-level model by Sony

Our conclusion

In 2020 the X750H Bravia is the lowest model in the Sony lineup. The 4K Ultra HD TV of the japanese manufacturer comes in three sizes and is the follower of last year’s X750F which looks at first sight quite similar. But what does the new entry-level model by Sony offer? Are there really a lot of features from higher ranging models missing?

Solid manufacturing of the X750H

The X750H Bravia has a solid design for its price class. There are two simple feet, one is placed left and one right. They are quite stable so the TV does not wobble. The frame is slightly wider and thicker than on higher class Sony models but this does not distract that much. The backside ist half made of metal and half made of plastic. The cable management is rather simple with two extra clips that are attached to the feet.

No HDR sufficient image quality

The 10 bit VA-panel of the Sony X750H delivers quite typical a good black level and a relatively good contrast ratio of ~5730:1 although it does not have a local dimming feature to further improve this. Therefore the TV is best used in dark surroundings. The disadvantage of the VA panel is its problem with the viewing angle: When watching TV from side angles on the Sony X750H, the image appears washed out and therefore we recommend to place it directly in front of the couch. A layer to enlarge the viewing angle is only used on higher class Sony models. Similar to for example Samsung’s entry-level models, the peak brightness is with around 370 Nits not very high and therefore not suitable for HDR content. Nevertheless the X750H offers wide color gamut. HDR10 and HLG are supported but HDR10+ and Dolby Vision are unfortunately not available.

X750H's Motion Handling

When it comes to Motion Handling, first of all the refresh rate is important which is only 60Hz here. Also the TV’s response time is not really outstanding, but quite good for an entry-level TV, as it takes a little bit more than 4 ms. The backlight of the X750H is completely free of flickering which means that all content with fast motion can be displayed very well. Moreover an optional black frame insertion feature is available that helps reduce motion blur.

Unfortunately the TV has a problem with judder which it cannot reduce from most resources.

Gaming on the X750H

In terms of gaming it is always interesting if the TV is useful in combination with consoles or as a PC monitor. Its input lag is with 12ms quite short. For console gaming the Sony X750H has no real specials to offer, as an HDMI 2.1 input is missing as well as a Variable Refresh Rate, which would reduce screen tearing, and the Auto Low Latency Mode, which would shorten the Input Lag of the television when connected to a console even further. Because of the limited viewing angles gaming in a group will not be that much fun as single player games. But because the X750H is no OLED TV, the problem of a potential burn-in is not given and makes it useful as a computer monitor. For gaming fans the TV might not be the best option.

The sound quality of the X750H

The sound of the 2.0 bass reflex speakers with 20W is acceptable as it is relatively balanced. The TV can quite get loud but distortion is a problem. When it comes to sound formats the X750H only offer DTS but no Dolby Atmos as there is no HDMI eARC available. As usual it makes sense to add a sound bar to the setup for a better sound experience.

Good Smart TV features

The X750H runs with the Android 9.0 Pie OS which works a lot better than its predecessor. The attached Play Store offers a large selection of apps, so that nothing should be missed. These run apart from that even really smooth. The corresponding Smart Remote is connected to the app Android TV and offers voice control via Google Assistant. For an entry-level device this is very satisfying.

A solid TV without special strengths

As expected the Sony X750H is an entry-level model that has no surprising specs that make it a must have for a special use. Rather it is a solid device for usual TV and movie nights in smaller groups as it comes with a VA panel that delivers a good image in darker surroundings than in bright, sunlit rooms but a limited viewing angle. The design is modern and even above an entry-level, so the TV looks nice in nearly every living room.

Those who on the one hand do not consider buying a completely equipped home cinema device and on the other hand a new gaming television for upcoming consoles will be happy with X750H because it is suitable for a smaller budget and has a low input lag. The other missing gaming features such as an HDMI 2.1 input are rather relevant for the new generation of Xbox & co.

  • Good image in dark rooms
  • Modern design
  • Low input lag
  • Limited viewing angle
  • No HDMI 2.1

Alternatives to the Sony X750H Bravia

Samsung TU7000
Samsung's 2020 entry-level model

The competing model by Samsung is the Crystal UHD TV TU7000 which comes in a few more sizes ranging from 43 to 75 inches. It is also supposed to be the entry-level of the 2020 lineup, but in terms of image quality the TU7000 is a little weaker because its contrast ratio and peak brightness are below those of the X750H. That is why it delivers an even worse image in bright surroundings. Against the X750H it also has no wide color gamut and is therefore not suitable for any HDR content. Both are missing a local dimming feature which the two manufacturers only use for higher ranking models and both have a problem with watching from side angles because the VA panel only delivers a washed out image then.

But those who in terms of sound prefer HDMI eARC and Dolby Atmos instead of DTS, should rather go for the Samsung TU7000.

Sony X800H
The big sister model

The Sony X800H Bravia is the above model to the X750H and therefore its “big sister”. Against the X750H it has an IPS panel (except in the two biggest sizes 75” and 85”) which has the consequence that its viewing angle is much bigger but its contrast ratio and black level are worse. In combination with its higher peak brightness the X800H is therefore the better choice for HDR content as well as for bright rooms, i.e. watching TV in the afternoon. In terms of gaming it offers an analogue input and the Auto Low Latency Mode but still no HDMI 2.1.
