Sony X720E mini review
Resting in the entry-level category, Sony X720E is a slightly above-average 4K TV. It won’t come with any of the smart features found on the more expensive Sony TVs. Also, this TV will work better is rather bright environments, so that black uniformity won’t be as annoying. On the other hand, the input lag is low, thus providing a decent gaming experience.
Follow the guide below to calibrate picture on your Sony X720E in order to get the best gaming experience. These settings will provide the same result all three screen sizes (43”, 49” and 55”).
Sony Picture Settings for Gaming
In the Scene Select menu go for Game.
Next select Custom in Picture Mode.
Then, set Brightness to 5 and Contrast to 90.
If you’re using the TV in a rather bright room, set Contrast to 100.
Black Level and Color should be set to 50 while Hue should be left to 0.
Set Color Temperature to Expert 1. Sharpness works best at 50.
Turn off Reality Creation.
Turn off Random Noise Reduction and Digital Noise Reduction.
Motionflow and Cinemotion also need to be turned off to get the lowest input lag with HDR Gaming.
In the Advanced Settings menu, turn off Adv. Contrast Enhancer, Live Color and Black adjust.
Finally, if you plan on gaming in HDR, turn on Enhance option in the HDMI format.
Please be aware that only the 2nd and 3rd HDMI port supports this option. Go to Setup -> AV Setup and select HDMI Signal Format then change it to Enhanced.
For PC monitor optimization, set the Scene Select to Graphic. This will activate 444 resolution, also known as chroma subsampling.
