A quick glimpse at the specification sheet : 84.6 inches.
We are dealing with a rather large model.
Beside, this television is equipped with a Ultra HD 8K resolution.  With a diagonal of 84.6 inches, this mid-range model canbe considered as a rather cheap television .
Why can we consider this KD-85ZH8 as convincing in spite of its mid-range position ? This is what we are going to discover in this article.
