Rtings review of this TV: https://www.rtings.com/tv/reviews/sony/x900f

I purchased this TV November last year and was still able to price match my purchase due to the Best Buy Holiday extended return window (today was my last day to do this.) This TV has slightly better picture quality than the 2019 model (950g) due to better contrast ratio.

The 950 has a faster processor however. If you plan to exclusively use an external streaming device such as Apple TV 4k, Firestick, Roku ultra etc, then this doesn't matter.

Maybe it does, but I won't believe it until I see it. Most just switch over to HDR 10+ when you use an HDMI input. Feel free to share which patch update it was in.

From Forbes [forbes.com]:

"The problem is that the update doesn't seem to support Dolby Vision playback over HDMI. This means that people with Dolby Vision-capable source devices such as Oppo's 4K Blu-ray players and the Apple TV 4K can't actually get those devices to recognize their newly updated Sony TVs as Dolby Vision capable. Nor, it seems, does the firmware update support Dolby Vision playback over USB.
The only Dolby Vision sources that the new firmware update seems to support, in fact, are built-in apps such as Netflix.
So much of an outcry has the Dolby Vision update caused, in fact, that Sony has at the time of writing removed all mentions of Dolby Vision from its latest patch notes. There are even rumors that Sony has started to issue a further patch that takes away again even the limited Dolby Vision support the previous update introduced, but I can't currently confirm this."
Your information is from an article that is over 2 years old. It was published in January 2018. Avengers Infinity War hasn't even released back then.

The 900F supports Dolby Vision over HDMI. I have two Dolby Vision external devices connected to this TV and they work beautifully.

You beat me to it. This guy is basically appearing to be a troll at this point. These issues were fixed last year but he can't let it go.

Also I would barely trust Forbes to review a battery charger, let alone premium 4K TVs with insight into technical features such as HDR.

"The update – which unusually rolled out first in Europe first last week – enables Sony's most recently released models for 2018 to play Dolby Vision titles via built-in video streaming apps, or over HDMI."

So I own this TV. Bought it off Craigslist for $1000 cash and it's the 75". I will say one thing for certain, that the color spectrum is general more neutral / natural than my 2015 Samsung UN65JS850D. Which I still like more. The one thing I can say I hate about this TV is that the switching between HDR10 and HLG modes on a consistent basis is a huge pain in the ass. Like I constantly have to make changes on my settings to get the picture perfect for when I'm watching stuff.

Another thing I want to point out, that I think people don't realize either is actually how clear the picture can be with vibrance and luminance on the dimmest brightness. Quite frankly, this TV, at its dimmest setting, is still bright as F. So, at night when I want to veg out, I'm still squinting at this TV due to how bright it is. So, in my opinion, I wish it got dimmer for night watching.

To the good stuff, the 4K content display is farking amazing. Sometimes I see the juddering from the TV rendering every single frame and I don't care one bit.

Video games are great on it as my PC is plugged into it. So I have a Sony ST-5000 sound bar plugged into the eARC and it sounds great. I don't notice any sort of input lag either.

People bitch about the OS being really slow, it's not. It's fine. But then again, I'm not trying to install a billion apps on the TV itself. Get a fire stick or an apple TV or what have you.

I will say though, and not trying to bash Sony, but I think I am going to switch back to samsung QLED. I think the picture was honestly more vivid, eye popping, brilliant, and nicer. I just cracked the screen of my original one.

If this dropped to say $1299.. Yes totally. Go for it, but $1600+.. I would wait or pull trigger on something like an OLED.

One of the main pros of this tv is it's color is very close to optimal out of the box if you're looking for the most accurate colors when viewing films. You can tweak it to be more "vivid" (not as accurate colors) if you prefer

For sports, movies, etc so that all can enjoy. Again, it may not be needed for all but in my house it works well.

I can agree with this for sure. Color is as optimal as it will be out of the box

Does this model have the same black bar blooming issue that was noted in the x950g?

Approximately +/-30 degrees from dead center.
Is it +/-30 or 30 inclusive (+/-15)? I had last years Vizio P Series 75" and if you lined up with the edge of the tv at 10', the opposite edge was starting to wash out. Just as an FYI, 75" viewed at 10' puts the left and right edge within 30 degrees inclusive angle (+/-15) from center seat. This means you start shifting left or right and the opposite edge of the TV starts washing out... To me, it's a bigger issue than most admit.

Very wide yiewing angles on almost all LED's are not great. You want a perfect picture from the other room ? Buy an OLED.

sometimes there is blooming on black bars, most times there isn't.
Overall the TV's black is black AF though.

Very interested in this TV. Is the $1,698 price tag been the lowest that anyone has seen? Do we foresee if dropping price any more? Thanks

I have this TV and see the back and forth on DV. I too have the issue that the DV is unwatchable. It's way too dark and anybody that sees it asks if there is something wrong with the TV. I've done all of the firmware updates over the past year and a half and nothing has fixed it. Bought new cables. I use a 4K Apple TV and Xbox one X. Both devices detect the TV as DV capable. It's not an issue where I expect everything to be super bright. Something is definitely wrong. It's so dark and the colors are very muted. If finally just gave up and set everything to not use HDR.

That being said the TV is phenomenal if every other way. All content looks great in SDR. Even broadcast content in Hulu Live TV looks like 4k streaming quality to me. I believe the TV does some kind of simulated HDR that looks great. I have settled on the Standard Picture Profile with some minor tweaks. I would buy another one of these, it's just very annoying that the feature/capability that is probably the biggest thing you are looking for doesn't seem to work.

Looking for 65"
I bought the 65" 900F (XBR65X900F) from Amazon just a couple weeks ago for $898. The 65" was actually $100 cheaper than the 55" at the same time! Amazon's freight delivery carrier did a fine job. Communication was good and the box arrived in perfect condition.

With that said, I'm not sure about this SD deal for the 75" size; it is just one size up from the one I bought --- for $800 more? Personally I think $898, "sold by Amazon.com" for the 65" was a better deal, and maybe indicative that better deals are coming for this size here as well?

Monoprice or amazon basics. The monoprice posted below is an excellent choice,,I use those. Hint to 4k newbies, based on my personal experience. Round up all hdmi cables that you are not 100 percent certian are hdmi 2.0 18gps certified and throw them out.
Or at least put them in a bag and mark that they are only for old devices like 1080p tvs or monitors.
