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.

Note that the 10% off coupon only applies to the NON-PRIME version of the listing; the PRIME listing does not have this coupon. For me, at least.
Seller is legit so no problem

I have this model and love it. Upgraded from an old 55" LG 1080p.

I watch with Apple TV and Dolby Vision enabled. I found the picture a little dark, so I just increased the black level to about 60 (counter intuitive to increase) and it brightened it up. Looks awesome now.

Hmmm, really? I mean, for e.g. if I fed a 1080p signal say from my old DVD player, the TV will use its processing chip to upscale the content, right? And all the menu options in the TV to adjust picture quality is going to be using the TV's chip, right? i.e. PQ will be dependent on the TV's chip. Source also matters but it is a combination rather than the TV being used purely like a "monitor" rather than a intelligent processor + monitor.

Don't get me wrong, I have the 900E and would love me the 900F, but I ended up picking the 950G (even with its supposedly lower contrast, etc) due to the 900F being end of life with no more OS updates. I want to keep this unit for 7+ years at least.
I know it's not everyones cup of tea to also buy a streaming box, but I really recommend getting the new Nvidia shield. 4k upconversion is better than any built in cpu/algo, and you never have to worry about OS updates ( firmware is a different issue). It doesn't make sense to me to spend this much money on a TV and qualify the purchase based on hardware and software that's easy to decouple.

As I mentioned before, this is the reason I haven't bought this TV. That's the whole thing that got you yappin at me in the first place. I said I was looking at the 950G instead because of the DV issues on this. If you believe it's DV when you're watching television using an HDMI or USB cable, then I'm not going to tell you to stop believing it because obviously you convinced yourself. Reality though is it's most likely auto-switching to HDR 10+, like all the other 900F TVs out there. It's not a bad TV by any means, but the 950G upgrades some of the issues it does have.
You have no clue what you are talking about. No Sony TV has HDR 10+.

DV being dark is the ONLY REASON I didnt pick this TV over the 950G.

Some other 900F owners on this thread (like the OP) say that they dont have this problem. Perhaps you can look for what they did to improve your PQ in DV? And report back? I would jump on this deal instead of the 75x950G as 900F has better contrast levels in comparison.
I dont see an issue with DV, its a little darker but not DV is darker on my OLED too. If you want brighter, use a roku stick which only uses HDR. I use em both.

How much is this true? I have heard that the X1 Ultimate chip and its capabilities makes a lot of difference even if you use an external device to feed the content (incl. apps, etc).
has no effect.

You'll only see real on screen differences with the two CPUs when you use the TVs operating system. Generally dedicated 4k streaming devices will be much better than any TVs OS based streaming apps, which are not updated nearly as often. When the TV is viewing content via one of its HDMI inputs, the performance you'll see on screen (the smoothness of navigating menus etc) will entirely be from your external device such as Roku, Apple TV etc.
in general the deciding factor for buying any tv should not be built in anything. In 3 to 5 years all those apps will be unsupported orphans.

He also mentions about the wide viewing angle. I personally picked up the X950G 75 inch when it was on sale last month specifically for this reason. It could just be personal preference but the viewing angles are quite good with the X950G compared to the X900F that I viewed in store.
On a 75 inch TV how much will your viewing angle be ?. Just curious because for most people this thing fills the room

Have to give that a try to. Increasing gamma to plus one increases brightness to. DV in general is a bit subjectively dimmer because the dynamic meta data prevents white crush - that routinely happens with static hdr. Recently netflix and amazon finally decreased compression much to the benefit of picture and sound quality. The best quality streaming is Disney plus - it will devour your data cap fast😎.

Approximately +/-30 degrees from dead center.
