Bought this exact set from BB during Black Friday weekend.

Like others, I was torn between the 55x810c and the 55x850c. I did A LOT of research on these models. For anyone interested in the differences:

55x810c - VA panel. Direct Backlit w/ no local dimming. No HDR. No "Triluminous" display (Sony's marketing term for a Wide Color Gamut panel). No 3D. Build quality on the cheaper side. Thicker TV. Basic UHD TV, not a lot of bells and whistles, but the picture quality rivals and even beats the more expensive sets of 2015.

55x850c - VA panel. Edge Lit w/ no local dimming. HDR-Compatible. Active 3D. Has "Triluminous" display (WCG). Build quality is nicer. Much thinner TV. While it has more features, such as HDR, WCG, and 3D, the basic picture quality is a bit worse, due to it being Edge Lit and having no local dimming. It is HDR-Compatible, but does not take great advantage of HDR content.

Both of the 55" versions are VA panels, which means deeper blacks and brighter whites (so a much higher native contrast ratio), at the expense of the wide viewing angles you get with an IPS display. A VA-panel television is best for one, or maybe or two people, who are going to sit directly in front of the TV. An IPS-panel is better for a large living room where multiple people are going to be watching from all different angles.

I went with the x810c because I trusted Rtings and user impressions on AVS Forum that the picture quality was indeed improved on the x810c. That, and while HDR support and the WCG panel are nice additions, my main use was going to be video games. I can tell you that the 55x810c has an amazing contrast ratio and very deep blacks. It does NOT get very very bright, however, so it won't be great for a room with a lot of windows that have a lot of natural light coming through. It's very well suited for a darker/dimmer room.

I'm very happy with mine. This TV is kind of a "Jack-Of-All-Trades", IMO (minus, of course, if you watch 3D content or would like HDR/WCG). It's a basic UHD TV, but the focus seems to be on having great picture quality. A lot of TVs on the market, even ones that are $3-$4k, seem to always have some sort of fatal flaw, or some aspect that makes it totally unsuitable for one type of content or another. This TV is great for movies. Great for gaming. Great for sports. Input lag is minimal and you can even keep Motion Interpolation turned on during some games, since whatever Sony is doing with their 'MotionFlow' system, it doesn't add a tremendous amount of input lag (see Rtings.com). Motion blur/response time is great.

The only negatives I can give this TV are the build quality (feels very flimsy, some of the bezel along the top pops in and out, some of the screws seemed to either be too tight or loose, requiring me to get a screwdriver), and the fact that on some screens, you can see what looks to be backlight bleeding along the right edge. It's very very minor, and only noticeable in the Android TV settings menus, to be honest. I can't see it at all during any type of actual content, and it fairs MUCH better than any Edge Lit display I've ever seen.

Also, some stats for nerds: The panel is an actual 120Hz panel. The panel is also a "true" 4K display (unlike LGs UHD TVs in this price range, which are not). All 4 HDMI Inputs are HDMI 2.0. All support HDCP 2.2. All are capable of accepting a 4K/60Hz input, and even a 1080p/120Hz input (one of the few TVs that can accept a 120Hz signal and display it natively). HDMI 2 is ARC-compatible, and HDMI 4 is MHL-compatible. There is an audio optical out port, and it does pass a Dolby 5.1 signal.

There is no doubt in my mind that this is currently the best 4K television in this price range. Any cheaper and you're dealing with LG's fake UHD TVs. The Vizio M is close competition, but that line has its own problems that this Sony set does not have.

$200? I know Disc has a 10% promo and the 5% cash back, but I think I'm missing out on the other 5% -- any advice?

He's referring to 10% cash back with Discover and assumes we all have the double cash back promotion.
