What is the general consensus of this TV vs the x900e? Is the price bump for the x900e justified?

The X900E gives you a full LED instead of an Edge LED. I could not tell the difference at Best Buy, but it is what it is. If you want the Full Range LED, you can spring for the X900E.

Rtings.com say this about stepping up to the X900E: "The Sony X900E is a slight step up over the X850E. It's a similar TV, but adds features such as local dimming. It also gets brighter, so it is a bit better for HDR movies. If you're a bit of a movie buff and want the best home theater experience, it might be worth spending more on the X900E."

I'm confused by the many views but lack of thumbs up. It appears this is the lowest this model has been on Amazon, but I'd rather go with Best Buy as they are local.

I'm on the fence with this one but I'm hoping for some feedback. Are the lack of TUs in hopes it will drop in price further, or for something else. I'm familiar with Rtings.com thoughts on this and the 900e. What I'd really like is the 75", but I'm having a difficult time with the almost $1000-1500, depending on 850e vs 900e.

Keep waffling between the 850 & the 900.

We're not videophiles (I'm not concerned with putting on some dark scened movie and amazing how black the blacks are without any halo's), and mainly just watch cable so it seems the 850 would suffice.

BUT...definitely like the idea of streaming HDR content via Netflix, Amazon, etc, and 4K stuff via YouTube.

Also, it's our main TV and something we'll use many hours of EVERYDAY we own it. So what's $400 in the long run if it's truly worth the upgrade?

Decisions decisions...any insight is appreciated.

This likely won't help deciding for some, but I wanted to add that I have an Sony XBR 52" LED and it is at least 12 or 13 years old. Never one single issue.

Similar story here. Sony has been very reliable to me versus the Korean brands.

It's about light bleed. If you have a bright room and watch a lot of sports this is a great set. If you watch a lot of movies at night in a darker room, you want the 900 model with local dimming (FALD).

Visio P65 e-1is the same price at Costco. Which TV is better? Costco citi card gives 4 yrs warranty, so if there similar may bite on that.

I'm kind of happy about this since Best Buy has a 15 day price guarantee and today is 15 days since I bought the TV.

As far as the quality of the TV, I've been very impressed. I have always been a fan of plasmas and can't quite justify the price of an OLED to the wife, but I've been very happy with the performance of this set so far. I've received several compliments on the picture quality once I dialed in a few settings (rtings.com settings were much too dim for my normal usage). Blacks are pretty impressive for an LED (at least in front of the TV) and I can't imagine an extra $400 being worth it for most people. The ability to get brighter for HDR seems to be the biggest advantage the 900e has over this set and I have been fine watching Stranger Things 2 in HDR and don't believe $400 would result in a big enough improvement in PQ to justify the % increase in price.

Viewing angle is the biggest issue I have with this TV, which would be a problem with almost any LED and is the same on the 900e.

How is Sony XBR65X850E compared to Samsung UN65MU8000 - both 65". Similar price points.

Here is the link for comparison:

But any personal experience would help.
