What experts liked
It did an excellent job displaying the finest detail of HD content. Color accuracy was very good, with flesh tones in particular, looking natural.
- Consumer Reports
The Sony X690E has a great native contrast ratio just shy of 4000:1. This contrast ratio means that the X690E will be a good option for people with a dark home theater room since blacks look deep and not grayish like on some IPS TVs, and also because it can reproduce dark scenes fairly well without them looking washed out.
- RTINGS.com
What experts didn't like
When we viewed the TV from the sides, image quality got worse. The picture showed a slight loss of color.
- Consumer Reports
The Sony X690E sound capabilities are average. The TV doesn't provide a particularly good sound, but it also doesn't have a very big downside that renders it less usable.
