Love my Sony 65X950B so much that I am upgrading to 84"

I have had the 65" in my home for only a few days and I am so pleased that I signed up to have the 85" delivered in 2 weeks hoping the quality will be as great. Anyone have their hands on the 85" yet?

Quiet! - Happy Owners should be left to their HAPPINESS!

If you have the bucks for the best whore in the cathouse and she turns you on like no one else who cares if it masks others reality.

Your obviously in love and you have the bucks to spoil yourself with a double whammy with 84" so go for it.

Lol my wife is already thinking I'm crazy for buying the 65x950b...

I think she would kill me if I bought that for her and not a 2012 EOS convertable with 20k miles on it.

Thanks Westa6969, agreed.


Haven't taken delivery yet, its amazing how difficult it is for the TV to be acquired. I have Sony and Magnolia pinned up against each other, orders placed at both.


I have confirmed with Sony that the TV is sitting in a warehouse 15 miles from my house. If I wasn't a "squeaky wheel" I wouldn't have this TV until week after next (I am not 100% certain I will get it this week).


I had to email some Sony corporate executives to hopefully have them break protocol and skip all the white glove delivery revelry BS. Seems absurd that they can't just allow for it to be delivered and let me use my own install guys.


Anyhow, hope this bad boy will be on my wall Tuesday and performs like the 65". Will report back with progress.

If it was like anything for the 84 inch it took a team of 3 to 4 guys to install the TV. That's why Sony wants to use their people instead of you using your people to do installation. if this helps at all.

Probably the first one sold, they want to make sure everything goes well. Hopefully they installed the proper amount of zones for this kind of money.

Are you having the Best Buy professionals do the install?

Post some pics in all seriousness when you get it. That is a massive screen!

I can see why you want the 84 this tv is beautiful, I just got mine today. I went over in my head if I could manage the 84 but after factoring the devorce I decided to stick with the 65.

One big step for avskind! Best of luck to you and your hopefully pristine 85" 950B. IMO I definitely would of let the Sony peeps had full liability on the install & setup...

Funny thing is this active 3D 85" is actually smaller in length than the passive 3D 79" 900B by a few inches. Taller by only 4 inches & 28 pounds of weight. I wonder if it will have more than 128 zones at this price point? Vizio 384 zones for the 65" & 120" due out later this year "supposedly".

Lastly I am curious how the Panasonic AX900 85" will compare with it's Quad-Core processor processor "real time" FALD & purported plasma type blacks, when it is also released in just a few months from now?

What we will be is not what we are, what we are is not what we were...therefore hoping in all things becomes possible.

Congratulations. Enjoy some of the best video reproduction the WORLD can offer. This is what Life is about, enjoying things to the fullest that you have the means for, and that bring Joy into your Life.
People spend more money than this on things they hate, they just won't admit it.
To say I'm jealous would be a under statement.

Getting closer, TV might still be delivered tonight (I am on west coast). If not tomorrow morning.

Apparently this required numerous signatures up the line @ the TV division as the TV in "breaking street date" by being delivered a week early.

5X10, you mean the 79 900B. These numbering schemes can drive you nutty.

Only have spent a bit of time with this baby but I am in love.
