These prices will drop real fast, just like last year. The addition of X1 xtreme and super bit mapping is a welcomed upgrade. In 2 months, the 900e will be a good bargain at 65". The Only downside is that sony wasn't able to fix the viewing angle issue this year.

I'm fairly interested in the X900E. Seems like a 940D, but in 65". It would be a good upgrade for my 2015 Vizio M

Obviously not the best LCD television (900e) you can buy this year but nevertheless it is the one I find most intriguing. Too bad it won't have Dolby Vision and it remains to be seen how much of a problem blooming will be that was alluded to in the article. Kind of a poor man's 940E.

I was interested in the 75X940E.......but $7999. in Canada....ouch. I was hoping for about $5000. US and $6000.-$6500. in Canada as a starting point. I can get the new JVC 770 projector and excellent 106-108" screen for less than that in Canada. I will still want to see this Sony though and would only buy when it goes to around $5000 or so.........and I don't think it will.

I am soooo on the fence. I want a 75" 4k, and was leaning towards the 2017 models with both HDR and Dolby Vision....until I saw the prices...

Now I am leaning towards a 940D, but still may wait until May-June and see if the prices drop.

To be continued...

Yeah but those features aren't in the 900E. The 900E won't have super bit mapping from the X1 Etreme, and no Dolby Vision...

The new X1 has super bitmapping. So the 900e and also 850e has this feature this year. It's a compromise but an improvement nonetheless.

Meanwhile, BuyDig (Sony dealer) was selling 940D 75s for 2799 last week, with warranty. And until they came off retail sale last week (they'll go back on), you could get a 75" 850D for 2499 all day long basically anywhere.

I just don't see why I'd buy one of these.

At first I thought these are just a tad too expensive. Then I realized that these are not even OLED, the 800 series are just edge lit ones.

For those prices, I'd hope they've ironed out the issues with the "D" models instead of sending them forward, maybe at least a remote that isn't as poorly designed or performing....

Yeah, I wanted a 75" with Dolby Vision. I guess that was a pipe dream.

BTW, in the Best Buy listing for the 75X900E, there is this:

"High dynamic range (HDR) creates a more realistic pictureCoupled with Dolby Vision content that delivers a dramatic visual experience, HDR elevates picture quality with the remarkable brightness, extremely high contrast and captivating color."


Is that a misprint? Or are they saying the embedded standard HDR of Dolby Vision content will still look good?



I didn't think the 900E models had Dolby Vision.

I just don't see how Sony is going to sell the 75X900E, considering that one can get a 75X940D for less, AND that, according to this review, the E series may have less dimming zones than the 940D.

http://www.trustedreviews.com/sony-k..._medium=social

Is there any advantage at all of the 900E over the 940D?

It was tempting until it looked like the end of the 940d supply all had quality issues from the 940d thread

LG pricing already leaked and 77" is 15 grand, would not expect Sony's to cost less. That extra foot costs a arm and a leg in OLED land.

I wonder how the blacks of the 900E will compare to the Vizio M & P series. Also why is the 49" 800E $300 more than the 800D? I was looking @ the specs & it doesn't look much different from the D version.

At this point it's a bit tricky comparing prices as we don't know what the street price of the 75X900E is going to be this summer other than it's likely going to be much lower than the current unicorn like MSRP price. It sounds like the 75X940D is at close out prices and a great value. But when inventory runs out on the 940D then you're left comparing the 2017 models.

The 900E is at the bottom of Sony's FALD hierarchy so it's highly likely it does have less zones than the 940D. But the 75X900E is $1500 cheaper than the 75X940E when comparing MSRP prices and for some folks the cheaper 75X900E may be considered a better value and good enough.

It will drop down to the D series launch price after launch. The 43X800D was original listed at $1099 MSRP and dropped to the retail $799 price by the time it launched.

My wife freaked out when I made the jump from 43" to 50" (I set less than 4' away from the TV),so 85" is outta the question.

Still find it odd an edge lit 930 is more premium than FALD 900e. I'd like to hear how they do side by side in a dark room.

The 930 will likely achieve more brightness due to the extended dynamic range pro 10x vs the 5x on the 900. I'm probably looking to replace my JS8500 Samsung with a 900 if the reviews are good.
