Well said. Tv should focus on picture quality, external devices can worry about the rest.

Took me like five minutes to disconnect it, pull out the media player, pull out the 2600 to unplug it, move it around to the back of the TV because the cord wasn't long enough to just plug into the wall because it is located in the bottom right area of the console (as seen in the pic)... Of course it was all for not in the end (like it was ever a question)...I know they have their steps to cover, but the thing worked fine up until last week...

I'm not sure I could have much more hidden back there

DVR
XBOX ONE
XBOX 360
HTS2600
HDMI Switch
Pioneer Elite SC-27
Oppo BDP-93
Darby Darblet
Router
Linksys switch
Gigabit Card (with UPS)
Rocketfish Transmitter
4K Media Player
Amazon Fire TV

Ridiculous !!!!! You also have take into account all of those damn LAN patch cables.... lol..it's crazy back there!!!
What! No PS4? That's blasphemy!!!

I've got mine, but in case any of your friends want a XBR-65X900A of their own -

It's now listed in the sony.com Outlet section. The 55" model is there as well.

New XBR65X900A owner

So here's the deal. I had a 4K Samsung TV that was awesome but then the XBR65X900A went on clearance for $2899 at Best Buy. I immediately noticed a much, much softer picture with the Sony vs the Samsung. I adjusted a few things in the picture settings but it seems like the Sony is nowhere near as crisp and sharp as the Samsung was. I have ordered the Disney WOW disk in hopes of being able to calibrate the Sony's settings of getting a picture I can live with. Otherwise I'm going to be a very unhappy person with this TV.

Am I missing something here or are these newer Sony TVs normally much softer than the Samsungs in terms of picture sharpness and brightness?

In my experience Samsungs generally tend to have a more aggressively processed picture. It's why I like my X9.

Have you tried putting the TV in Vivid mode? That's as much 'pop' as you're gonna get from a Sony TV.

I tried Vivid mode and all it did was over saturate the colors. I'm realizing the PQ on my TV looks nothing like what Best Buy was using in their store. I'm sure they might have been using better content than what my Directv receiver is giving which is normally 1080i.

We will see.

Choose vivid then adjust color to 50, color temp to warm 1. You might like Samsungs picture quality better, no crime in that. The 900B was fine tuned to be brighter to compete against Samsung in brightness, the 900A is not as bright.

You would probably would have been better off going with the Sony 850B, it is also brighter than the 900A.

See Sony warranty,

Hello I am in Mexico and I have some doubts about my guarantee I will tell a little about my case ...

Acquired the 2nd of June 1 65X900A this presented me a dark vertical line exactly half of my TV, this note on the soccer matches from global to be the quick movements this line is similar to demo Sony Motionflow dividing screen ...

I conunique customer service Sony Mexico immediately channeled me to a repair center and they changed my attention Sony panel with a new one, the problem is that this panel had light leaks and more robust lines in clear images .. ..

call again with Sony and they sent a new TV instead of this ... the detail and repaired again is presenting this new line in soccer matches and not eh detected this line in any other picture either antenna, USB or HDMI ... Sony of Mexico offered to do the return of my money and they receive my TV report that they no longer have any TV to make another change

Ask if you could send me a Tv series X900B which Sony Mexico immediately discarded

Could help me with information to know that I have another option?

I do not want the return of my money

I've noticed that the commercials shot in HD are much shaper and clearer than the programming from the networks. NCIS for one looks very soft on the indoor office scenes and most shows look really soft when the are showing a woman's face. Look at some of the commercials and see if they don't look much better than the programming. If anyone can explain this other than the casts just want to make sure they look good with no pimples, wrinkles or nose hairs showing up.

Enter your service menu and see what display you have. When the power is off press display, 5, volume up, and then power. The lower left on the menu will give you display info.

I have gone through 3 900a's and the panel type have made a big difference. I could have sworn the reality chip in my first panel was broken b.c the way stuff looked. The second and third TV blew the first out if the water.

The online review in Sound and Vision (see second page online) also mentioned a softer picture. That said, I just ordered one at a close out price to take advantage of the passive 3D. The review at the HDTVtest UK site for the 55" also mentioned problems with the Noise Reduction settings which would not go down all the way to a true zero. But the 55" findings may not be representative of performance of the 65".

You ordered the 65" right? The 55" does not have 1080p 3d for the 3d image.

Yes, for the very reason that you cited.

Hello Community,

I'm near ready to pull the trigger on a 65x900a. It's $2500 including Tax and delivery. Any reason not to get it? I know this is a biased group, but do any of you think I might be better off with an 850b or a Samsung UN65HU8550?

Thanks in advance for your thoughtful feedback.

Erik

There are not enough reviews for the 850b to say. I personally owned the Samsung 8550 and it had judder issues. I now I have my 4th 900a coming b.c vertical banding. If I didn't have the banding issues the 900a is flawless in all other areas. 3D is amazing!

The first thing I suggest you do is watch some world cup when you receive it. If you have a banding issue it will show immediately.

The samsungs seem to be much more uniform.

No way I would purchase and 850B over a 900A. Read the CNET review on the 900B, they credit the outstanding black levels to the local dimming. The 900A has similar black levels. The Samsung does not have a 4K player. The Netflix 4K feeds look worse than a lot of 1080P feeds, you want the Sony 4K Player.

I will agree to an extent. The 4k content I took in on the Samsung did not look much better than 1080p.

Not sure what else you could do but take the refund, the "a" is now not manufactured so get your money refund and buy the newer B, you can play 4k from usb, but 3d is not as good

The 79 inch 900b is passive 3D like the 900a but comes with a hefty 9,000 price tag.

I thought to do this but this is very expensive televvisor in Mexico

65X900A discount price $ 5,000 USD (normal price $ 8,000 USD)
65X900B $ 9,200 USD


As you can see here the costs are crazy and very high sniff...

My first reaction would be take a drive north in a van!
Is there any import tax etc and compatability to be concerned with?

Why would you have to be a very unhappy person? Take it back and get a Samsung if you don't like it. The Sony is not super bright.

And its made worse by not being able to adjust the picture settings when using some of the apps, e.g. the built-in Netflix is not adjustable and is too dim unless I'm watching in total darkness.

There is a way to get full picture adjustment on apps such as Netflix.

Open app "Crackle" and load any selection. Once the Crackle selection is playing, you're able to adjust all Scene, Picture and Sound adjustments. Those settings will carry over to Netflix and all other applications. It's not the most convenient way to make settings changes, but it works.

I have the exact opposite experience with Directv 1080i. I have never seen a PQ with more pristine clarity from any cable/sat source.

Or the Amazon App. Weirdly, there are several grayed out settings in the youtube app but you can still access the menus.

Hey all,

This may sound a little stupid but my father-in-law recently purchased the 55x900A and asked me to come check it out. This wasn't the first time I'd seen the TV in action (it looks great), but this is the first time I'd had hands on with it. The first thing I noticed is that he was running an HDMI into the second HDMI port from his Comcast Xfinity box...but the picture was reading as 720p. I dove into the menus and couldn't find any way to manually change the resolution to 1080p...and the manual didn't seem to help either.

Can someone point me to where this setting can be found? I seemingly could change every little detail on the TV except for the resolution!

Let me know.

Thanks!

I suspect the Comcast box is set to output 720p?? I would check it's settings first.
