Sony Bravia X900F Series (XBR-65X900F) review

 

2018's first new big-brand TV is a beast

Excellent HDR picture quality ; Excellent SDR picture quality ; Clean, open sound ; Fair value

Android TV is frustrating ; Some light bloom ; Limited effective viewing angle ; Divisive design

Sony’s inspired decision to use a direct LED lighting system and local dimming in the X900F makes the XBR-65X900F an outstanding model for the money. Inevitably, given its mid-level price point, it’s not quite perfect. But even in these early stages of...

Sony Bravia XBR-65X900E review

 

Direct lighting and local dimming at a price you might actually be able to afford

Strong HDR Pictures ; Good value ; Gorgeous SDR pictures ; Attractive design

It could be brighter ; Very limited viewing angle ; Android TV can irritate ; No Dolby Vision support

Despite not boasting Sony’s top-tier video processing system, the 65X900E’s successful combination of an unusual direct lighting system with Triluminos colour technology and an eye-catchingly affordable price makes it something of a mid-range hero. By...

Sony Bravia X9 4K TV review

 

Forget curves - it's all about sound and style with Sony's new Bravias

Great screen ; Even better speakers ; Wedge design is unique

Untested how it will really fit in the home ; Mirrored sides could prove distracting ; One-Flick is a little touchy

Sony ups the ante in the 4K arms race

Awesome 4K picture quality ; Highly effective upscaling ; Best in class 3D ; Drop dead gorgeous design ; Superb audio system ; Solid Smart TV

Expensive ; Cheapo remote control ; Single tuner

Sony XBR-65X900A & XBR-65X850A 65-Inch 4K Ultra HDTV Review

 

Wow – this TV is wide! When the long box arrived, it took some lengthy unpacking but the assembly was quick. The XBR-65X900A looks different from the rest. Polished in a glossy piano black finish and with built-in speakers on the sides, in the era of...

Sony XBR-65X900F

 

Sony's X900F 4K TV series is among the brightest we've tested, with excellent color and tons of features thanks to Android TV, though some minor issues coupled with a hefty price tag keep it from rising to the top.

Very bright panel. Excellent color performance. Lots of features. Attractive design.

Mediocre black levels with light bloom. Interface can feel slow and jerky. Expensive.

Sony's X900F 4K TV series is bright, colorful, and stylish. It can put out well over 1,000cd/m2 when pushed, and it comes packed with features thanks to its Android TV interface. Its black levels are mediocre, however, and light bloom can hurt its...

An affordable Sony TV with a great picture

 

The Sony XBR-X900E offers a combination of image quality, style and cool Google features that no other TV can match at this price.

The Sony XBR-X900E evinces excellent image quality, with deep black levels, accurate color, solid video processing and best-in-class high dynamic range performance. Its modern, minimalist styling is a cut above budget models. The Android TV operating...

Costs more than Vizio and TCL TVs with similar image quality. Smart TV and voice control features can occasionally be slow to respond.

The Sony XBR-X900E has the sweet style and superb picture quality to tempt midrange TV shoppers away from Vizio or TCL.

Sony TV is thinner than your phone

 

Sony has announced what it claims is the thinnest LCD TV in the world. The 55- and 65-inch sizes of the X900C series have cabinets that measure just 0.2 inches thick at their thinnest parts.

Sony XBR-65X900B

 

With a robust built-in sound system, the Sony XBR-65X900B is one of the best 4K HDTVs you can buy right now, but until 4K content becomes widely available, it's not worth the high cost.

Bright picture with accurate colors. Attractive design. Powerful sound system. Lots of features.

Expensive. Poor black levels for the price. 4K content selection isn't compelling yet.

While you can't count on Netflix and YouTube for 4K video unless you have a truly prodigious Internet connection, Sony itself offers a solution that's much more reliable. Unfortunately, it's expensive and extremely limited. The upcoming FMP-X10 is a...

Sony XBR-65X900B

 

At the high end, where TVs like Sony's XBR-X900B compete, there's the added fact that many people have a dedicated home-theater system, with big separate speakers and amplification that render moot (mute?) any audio built into the TV.

The Sony XBR-X900B series provides the best picture quality of any 4K TV we've tested so far, competing well against the better plasmas. It also pumped out best sound of any TV we've heard, bar none. Its prominent speakers and high-end finish makes a...

Those speakers: you'll either love 'em or hate 'em. Most people won't love 'em. The X900B is also more expensive than most 65-inch 4K TVs. The high resolution doesn't provide a major boost in image quality, especially with non-4K content. The 3D image...

If you can stand its speakers, Sony's XBR-X900B will reward you with the best combination of audio and video quality you've ever seen (or heard).
