Not impressed

Picture quality is amazing as I expected it would be. Does not work with google home in any way even though Sony says it should. Casting from mobile devices doesn't always work. Voice commands via the remote control are not as accurate as they are when using my phone. I want to be excited about a new tv for a while after I get it home. I was excited at the idea of an android TV. I am very underwhelmed.

Great TV for its price

I am very impressed with this TVs quality. Very good compared to other models within its price category. I believe the only way to truly beat it is to move up to an LG or Sony OLED model. I have owned mine for about 4 months and I would highly recommend it.

Solid amazing TV

Got this TV November 2017. An amazing set with fast motion, great color and contrast. Perfect for streaming Netflix, You tube and amazing for Blue Ray movies. Solid so far. I don't understand the negative reviews. Either they are uneducated users or just paid trollers. The default settings work perfectly. I do have a Yamaha home theater setup which works seamlessly with the Sony including auto power on-off controlled by the TV. The sound is perfectly synchronized with the picture. After ordering a 55" I changed my mind and went with the 65". Best Buy redirected the 55" mid route and sent me the 65" I upgraded to. Great buying experience and a fabulous TV.

Spying

Sony tvs save and sell your data to third party companies. I will not support that kind of business practice. They lie to their customers.

Be careful when buying Sony

Sony had a problem with the power circuit boards in the 850 and 930D televisions. They extended the Limited Warrenty to account for this and was willing to replace the circuit boards free of charge for the consumer. Good luck getting them to honor this. The customer service is nonexistent. Do your research before buying. Sony is not as good of a brand as it use to be. Shame on Sony for not standing behind their products.

Awsome TV

I did a lot of research on tvs. Was deciding between this and the LG OLDED C7, was worried about burn in and didn't want to spend almost double the price. ended up going with the Sony 900e and I am very happy with it. Picture quality is amazing. Black levels are so good, go to you tube and watch an lg oled demo on this tv, the contrast is just as good. Google assistant is a bonus and works great. The sound quality is actually pretty good, not as bad as reviews say. The remote is nothing special but is fine and has spill proof top, easy to clean It gets brighter whites than OLED and no worry about burn in. For the price, you are getting a high end TV at a mid range price, you wont be disappointed.

Light Bleed, But Awesome Picture

I've returned 3 of these now due to light bleed on the right or left edge of the screen. It's very slight, but noticeable in some scenes. I will keep returning until I get one that doesn't have this issue.

Very Impressive

This could be jumping the gun a little but after I've read the reviews and did research I don't think it will be. I bought the TV just last night and of course, had to spend a few hours on it playing with features and settings and it blew me away. I came from a projector which was 1080 but always had 100"+ screen so the 65" was a nice adjustment back into a TV. All I can say is wow, the picture is just incredible. its so bright i almost need sunglasses sometimes, but the colour and over all smoothness of this tv is just phenomenal. I've been reading into settings for different modes and playing with this as well which has been a ton of fun. Also while searching the web I came across a site saying this TV won summer 2017 for best mid level gaming TV on the market, after playing with the ps4 pro I would very much have to agree!! Bottom line... paid full price for the TV and I ain't even upset about it. I would highly recommend this set up for anyone looking to upgrade to 4k without stepping up to the 3-4000 range but still getting the quality.

Stunning

Truly a remarkable TV, there is a reason why this TV is never on sale. Best bang for buck, period. Watching 4K in UHD is just breathtaking on this beast.

Amazing TV

We picked up this TV a week ago and have no complaints,. The setup was easy and did not take long at all. We have been using Netflix and the color is amazing. Gaming from both a PS3 and PS4 works great with no lag or blurring. The size was bigger than we initially wanted but we're used to it now and would not want to change it. We looked at an LG OLED but moved away from it because of some concerns / comments I read related to gaming. 100% recommend this TV.

Amazing TV!!

This TV is incredible. I went in looking to purchase the lower level Sony KD70X690E but ended up seeing this one, did a side by side comparison, and decided it was worth it to spend the extra few hundred dollars to get this one as it had a noticeably superior picture even just in the store. So, where to begin on this...the reviewer below who claimed the picture is washed out and has grey blacks either has a defective model, doesn't have it set up correctly, or has cataracts because the picture on this TV is absolutely stunning and I’m not even talking about 4K content. 1080p and even 720p content looks eye-poppingly spectacular on this screen. I upgraded from an older Sony 46" that I thought had an amazing picture but the colours on this TV look so sharp and vibrant, I've never seen anything quite like it. I've had the set for a couple of weeks now and I still just kept marveling at the quality of the picture. On New Year’s Eve, my son was playing Forza Horizon 3 on his Xbox when a visiting boy asked what game he was playing. I told him and he exclaimed "That's Forza??" It turns out he has the exact same game at home but didn't even recognize it as the same game. He said "I've never seen Forza look like THAT before!" I understood what he was talking about because there was a big difference in how the game looked even switching from my old 46" to the new 65" and we don't even have the new Xbox that does HDR. Anyway, let me talk some specifics...one of the main reasons I purchased this model over the more entry level one is because this model has a true 120hz refresh rate like the 46" I was upgrading from. The 70" lesser model only has a 60hz screen and that just felt like a downgrade to me. Some people don't like the liquid smooth motion (soap opera effect) you get from that but I turn all the motion settings up as high as they go because love it. I got used to it on my old TV and now there's no going back. Anything else looks stilted. Gaming especially is way nicer at 120hz and I even like movies and TV with it. You can turn it all off if you want but I would suggest getting used to it as you’re paying extra for that feature and it is nice once your eyes become used to the look. A word of warning: because the internal computer is synthesizing new frames that don't exist, during particularly fast motion (like a first person game panning quickly around all over the place) you will likely notice a bit of artifacting but it's not that bad and I don't mind the small trade-off for the nice smooth motion. The onboard Android operating system is also very cool. It's nice to be able to use it like an Android box and install streaming apps like Kodi and others onto it. The TV has 3 USB ports on it so you can even hook up a USB keyboard and mouse for easy navigation through these apps, setup, and google play store if you wish and still have ports left over. Having 4 HDMI ports also sets this model ahead of the more entry level ones that typically only have 2 or 3. You can never have too many HDMI ports. The built in Chromecast is also very cool. While the TV has Youtube and Netflix built right in, Chromecast is a cool thing for if you're sitting around with family or friends watching youtube videos as it allows everyone in the room with a smart device to connect to the TV and add videos they want to play to the cue. It makes for a fun "Youtube party" atmosphere where everyone is around your huge TV instead of huddled around a tiny phone or computer screen. You can also download 3rd party apps onto your device to allow you stream photos and videos stored locally on your device directly to the TV. Some people have complained about the sound from the TV speakers. I'm not sure what they're expecting because they sound exactly like how I would expect TV speakers to sound. They do

Excellent TV!!!

So I did a lot of research and realized in this price range and the size(65) it just doesn't get any better than this TV....I was down to comparing the Samsung Mu9000 and SonyX900e. The Sony X900e has a wider color gamut, Mu9000 uses edge Lit backlight, X900e has direct led backlight with Full Array Local Dimming Technology... and the overall picture quality/brightness/clarity on the x900e would just blow your mind. I can include more specific technical comparisons but I want to keep this precise.....I have had this TV for a few months now and I continue to amaze myself every time I watch different content on it in 4K,HD or HDR....at night time if there are no lights on in your room this TV could seem even brighter...but I don't mind that because I love everything about this TV....I cant think of anything negative...nothing at all....you will not regret buying this TV...and because its a premium TV you even get free delivery and technicians from BestBuy for assembling it and mounting it on your wall!...I feel extremely satisfied with my purchase. Do give this TV a chance!...its worth every penny!

Waste of money

I don't understand where all the good reviews are coming from... I was very excited to get my new tv home and set up my ps4 pro but was very disappointed to see the black levels looked grey, and the contrast just wasn't there. Colors were okay, but whenever anything bright happened on the screen it looked like it bled into other areas making it look dull and hard to see. The speakers in the tv are also terrible, but that wasn't a deal breaker because I purchased a sony soundbar.

Headphone Jack

Not having a dedicated media room, and wanting to be sensitive to loudness, my cordless headphones are the solution. And Sony has a jack for that purpose. It's a pleasure to watch, even though I now want OLED, but what sealed the deal for me was the headphone jack. Which is why I gave it 5 stars.

Great TV

Only had this TV for a week but I'm very happy with it. Pros: 1) Excellent optical quality. Upscaling is done really well. HDR is great. One note: I turned off MotionFlow... made everything look unnatural. But I haven't noticed any problems with the feature off. (I'm sure MotionFlow might be useful for some applications, but I haven't needed it yet.) 2) Easy to use & set up. Android updates went really fast. TV was up and running in no time flat. 3) Built-in speakers are actually not bad. I had to wait for my sound bar to come in and was forced to just use the TV "as is". But for built-in speakers, I didn't think they were horrible - for regular, everyday kind of use. 4) I like that it comes with "remote software" for your phone. ----------------------------------------------------------- Cons: 1) Built-in Chromecast is somewhat limited. So I added an external Chromecast, to use with my Google home. (I already knew about this before purchasing the TV, so I wasn't surprised.) 2) Delay when using Chromecast button on remote control. Usually doesn't work first time, and have to press a second time before it responds. But otherwise, everything on the remote works very quickly - without lag. --------------------------------------------------------------- Conclusion: I really like this TV and am very happy with my purchase. I'd recommend it to anyone looking for a new TV.

Superb

Upgraded from a 50" 2009 Samsung plasma to this 2017 Sony beauty, and it was well worth the wait. Sony have hit the ball out of the park with their 2017 TV's and the X900E excels in every aspect. Like many consumers I did a lot of research before buying this TV (it came down to the X900E and the X930E - Samsung just weren't in the mix with their 2017 QLED's) and my main reasons for choosing it were the price, picture quality and upscaling ability. I watch mostly sports (hockey, baseball) via Telus Optik, Netflix movies and documentaries. Not a gamer so can't comment on that side of things. Hockey looks absolutely awesome on the 65" screen. I think Telus broadcasts 720p for their Rogers stream and the TV upscales this nicely. It looks very sharp and the TV has excellent motion handling. Even the fastest pace action is wonderfully smooth. Movies look awesome in Netflix in HD as I refuse to pay extra for Ultra HD when the TV is upscaling to near 4K quality on well mastered content anyway. I'm sure there is a difference in picture quality with HD and Ultra HD but quite frankly what I'm seeing looks amazing. Also tried out some 4K videos via YouTube and ... wow. Planet Earth II is also on Netflix now and I tried that out - looked stunning beyond words and I don't think it was even streaming in 1080p. The TV just worked wonders with the signal it was getting. I can't compare that to what it would look like against a 4K blu ray, but again to my eyeballs it was spectacular. Also against what it says on the actual box, I didn't have to create a Google account to use the TV and in fact I'm not even 'logged in' to Google. I turn the TV on for cable viewing and it comes on straight away. You don't have to negotiate your way through an opeating system if using cable. I guess if I didn't have cable then I would need to use the Android system more (and therefore do the whole Google login thing) but for cable use I reiterate that the operating system is almost surplus to requirements. I'd read other reviews about it being a bit clunky and slow but that will depend on how it's being used. So to cut this story short, I'm very pleased with the TV indeed. Stunning picture, easy to use, plenty of great reviews and picture calibration info online and a really excellent price on sale from Best Buy.

Stunning Picture Quality

Very please with choosing Sony x900E. The TV is very well build. Picture quality is stunning, clean, sharp. The contrast and picture depth is able to produce an immersive effective, which make Movie watching many times more enjoyable than lower end models. I watched the latest Star War and Star Trek (1080p) content on this TV, the up scaling of the 1080p content to 4K is absolutely perfect. It really makes the movie to come alive. I give this TV all thumbs up.

Great TV with one concern

Great TV with one concern I hadn't seen this mentioned anywhere before and I looked at a lot of reviews. Potential Concern: My TV turned on by itself in the early morning even though I had both timers turned to OFF (at bottom of GUI beside the main setting button). However there is another setting you need to be aware of: You have to into settings and find the Bravia Sync settings. Here you find the option to sync your devices to the Sony TV. You can have it turn on or turn off other HDMI attached devices. I believe what happened in my case was an automatic firmware update on my TV cable box by my Rogers cable provider and this recycled the power on the box which in turn powered on my TV. OR, a power glitch--although no indication of disruptions on other appliances. I'm just happy that I was not watching the fireplace channel before I turned the TV off because it comes up with the last channel viewed when the TV was powered off! You can choose want you want to happen or choose NOT to sync at all. For now , I chose to not sync a power on with my TV and external HDMI devices. With that out of the way: Another potential gotcha: According to Sony support, the IR blaster only controls one device --either your cable box or receiver. You MUST (although I can say only one seems to work for me) use both sensors in front of your cable box to get it to work (not just one hanging unused). Does not work with my Denon 1912 receiver. I set my sound to TV speakers, use an optical connection to my receiver and set it to a preferred level and tweak the volume on my TV through the remote. In other words I use both internal and external speaker simultaneously. My installation and setup experience: Shipping: My original shipment was late and no appointment was made as I expected Packaging: Was very good and drivers opened box for me to do a visual inspection (no problems) Stand Setup: Easy--4 chrome screws to attach back plate to stand (4 screws were already preinstalled to hold plate securely as well) and 4 black screws to attach to back of TV. Initial TV setup: Easy to follow MUST use all capitals for postal code in Canada! Used wired connection for firmware update. Connectivity: Wired and wireless are very good for me but my router is in the same room which makes a difference. I also have a very fast connection speed--100 mb/s from provider Android: I love Android and have several devices, so I know how to navigate the OS. I also connected a fast SSD to the USB 3 port and migrated my apps to it. I believe it made the navigation of the OS even quicker. I also have an Android based Nvidia Shield box connected but often can't tell which I am using but prefer the Nvidia shield for rock steady 4K steaming (2160 Res). The TV itself will default to 1440 or 1080 if the internet traffic is heavy (peak hrs) I have Chrome running on the tv Android OS and with a Bluetooth mouse and keyboard email and browsing is quite fast. Remote: Takes a little getting used to--Use Home a lot, Back, Action menu for picture setting access. Give it a chance and you will find it does a lot of things! Worst part is hitting the DISCOVER button accidently. Processor and Ram: Seems to have a quad core Rockchip ARM v7 Rev2, 3229 processor with 2 gig of ram and 8 gig storage and this seems like a common Android box configuration--not the most powerful configuration but gets it done for the most part. Better than average performance but still no where near my NShield. Note:If you have trouble with the OS , hold the power button down for about 5 sec and you reboot the operating system and that usually gets things back on track. Picture Quality: Great and 4K HDR from YouTube will blow you away, Netflix is very good but I don't think you are always getting the Resolution you think, depending on when you are accessing it--throttled down?? Upscaling: 1080p DVDs great, 720P good and 480 DVDs results seem to vary in terms of upscaling quality. No

Impressed

Extremely impressed with this TV. Never having owned a 4K TV before I was unsure just how good it would be. I find myself watching 4K programs and not paying attention to the actual content, just the detail of the image. Nice to have the ability to have kodi and emulators directly on the TV so I don't need a seperate box. Also really nice being able to hook my ps4 up to the TV to control it/play emulators. Only downfall I have found is that it takes awhile to startup (30 sec - 1 min). Other than that I have no qualms about it. If you're on the fence about it, I say to go for it. The Best Buy Employee that assisted me had nothing but good things to say and I see why.

This thing is absolutely sick

Some people say that Sony has been falling out of the TV game, but I couldn't disagree more. Picture wise, it's truly astonishing. The Blacks are deep and colors are vibrant, but not artificially over saturated like some of the competition. After calibrating will local dimming enabled, this thing boasts a static contrast ratio of roughly 6500:1. That is just pure insanity. and the motion...The motion is fluid, without judder (however when I maxed all of the motion settings, it was a little too strong in the soap opera effect for my taste). You can play around with the settings though as they are fully customizable to suit your taste. Lastly the use of Android TV is a beautiful touch. I love being able to cast whatever video I am watching to the TV with the press of a button. And hey built in Plex and Kodi! Woot woot! Menu's are quick enough - not quite as fast as LG's WebOS 3 interface, but nothing that would slow you down. The voice search option is a boon to usability as well, and I've found myself using that more than typing. Long Story Short - Love the TV, happy with the purchase 9.5/10. Would buy again. Good Job Sony...Good Job.
