Do you think it is just a faulty sample and I could replace it for a better one? The thing is, I don't want to go through the hassle of replacement only to get the same result in the end.
That's the million dollar question. Each to their own I suppose. I really did enjoy the picture quality of the x850c but when it's functionality has issues it makes a person question whether the Tizen system would be better. Seems others have less of a problem with it so maybe it is your tv. What I did was return mine, I still haven't replaced it but I will be within' a few days.

Yeah, the picture quality is nice, probably the best bang for the buck out there.

I was thinking of returning it and getting the 930c instead, but I'll probably do it next year when the eventual D series come out :P

I gave up on the 65" a while ago and got a samsung. I was in the same store yesterday and the sales dude stated that they re-sold both units I returned for the blue edges... Just pointing out that some people will buy anything if it's "on sale".

Blue edges aside, how was the Android behaving, did you ever need to reboot, etc?

Yes, in the recent North American update. Not sure about Europe.

Android is the biggest thing I missed! It worked flawlessly on both sets. I had one weird issue of a black screen, but it cleared itself up. I'm very used to android and this worked as expected. The biggest problem is what android suffers from in the first place, which is apps that are allowed into the store that are poorly made. They often have memory leaks. These are usually non-mainstream apps. I'm guessing that a lot of people who have problems with android added a bunch of crap apps.

Also, having a built in chromecast feature is SO much better than having to use the samsung apps, thus why I kept a chromecast plugged into the samsung.

Sony did a really good job with things like HDMI-CEC and ARC as well. It was really easy to switch to HDMI-CEC sources plugged into an AVR (like my onkyo) and the ARC switching worked PERFECT. The samsung I have now is extremely annoying with this regard. Seriously, this was GREAT on the sony.

The only real drawback I had was that plex and amazon didn't support DD 5.1/DTS audio. On the samsung, they do. (note: the plex app on samsung is not official and is nowhere near as nice.)

Also, the sony played movies on my usb drive properly where samsung (on multiple different tvs) had issues with the files having 5.1 audio and multiple streams in it. I don't really use this feature anyway, so no big deal.

Before returning, I'd try a reset of the TV to see if you just have a few bits crossed. I haven't had to reboot since the recent update. Hard to tell if anything was changed that would affect that issue, but it definitely seems better for me after the update.

Replacement TV from Sony

Hi. I have a 65" with the blue edge blooming. I have gotten Sony support to agree to send me a new TV. I asked if there was some way for me to pay a difference to get the 75" version instead so I can be sure there will be no blooming issue. They have told me no to that request.

Does anyone here have any experience with having a Sony replacement? Should I have any hope that this tv will not have the edge blooming or is that something that I should just expect the replacement to have?

Thanks

good luck. I have now seen 1 65" at a best buy whose blue edge issue was almost completely non-existent. that's one out of maybe 10-12. but those were almost all floor models that were put out there on day one. maybe the newest ones don't have it.

So...you're telling me there is a chance! But, I guess I won't hold my breath...

Hey I saw your calibration settings in your signature yesterday, I spent about 3 hours at home playing with them. I noticed just about everyone on the spread sheet is using cinema pro, i followed the settings to the T and every time those settings are all so dark and un vivid. Am I doing something wrong or does everyone prefer a dim screen?

(Only one demo is showing up right now. Hmmm.): https://www.mediafire.com/folder/bpa...emo_Comparison

For those curious of my method, I used AviSynth. My resize filter choices were meant to minimize artifacts caused by resizing.
Code:
clip=directshowsource("Demo.mkv").assumefps(29.97)
left=crop(clip,0,0,-1920,0).subtitle("2160p",size=72)
tween=bilinearresize(clip,1920,1080).spline36resize(3840,2160)
right=crop(tween,1920,0,0,0).subtitle("1080p",size=72)
stackhorizontal(left,right)
Re-encoded with MeGUI. X265 was set with a CRF of 18, which was overkill but I didn't want bitrate to be a limiting factor.
Great test. On my 79X9005B I can tell the difference virtually all the time (shots where the right side is out of focus I don't count as not fair comparison).

Initially I didn't even realise the 2160p and 1080p notations at the top but guessed which side was which, there's a definite sharpness to the 4K, looking obviously much clearer with greater detail as expected.

It's like on my old 46 when close up a stream would change from 720p to 1080p. The image suddenly punches in. This is similar but more dramatic.

Very much Looking forward to Ultra-HD Blu-Ray.

HOWEVER, I sit just over 2 metres from the 79 inch screen (just over 7 feet), I'm not sure if I had gotten a smaller TV that the difference would be as dramatic.

Your reaction is pretty normal...TVs tend to arrive w/default settings that are much brighter/bluer and optimized more for a show room than a home, and when you adjust them to a more "normal" setup it feels like you're losing something initially. I run on a Cinema Pro picture mode and am watching a show right now and it's quite bright. (Unlike many, I do have the light sensor enabled so the TV adjusts for ambient light.)

In the end, what you like is "the best" so I wouldn't worry about other people are doing too much - if you prefer different settings that's what you should go with. It is often suggested that folks let settings run for a few days to allow yourself to settle in with them. If you end up confirming that you don't like Cinema Pro-based settings, a switch to a brighter setting is only a click or two away. (Cinema Home, Standard, Custom, etc.)

The TV has fixed display, everything that isn't 4K is upscaled to 4K.

You only need a 4K DVD BD player if you want to be able to view native 4K content BDs.

Amazon HDR

Can someone confirm if Amazon HDR is working on their TVs? The master HDR thread says some of the Amazon shows have some of the best looking HDR to date. I want to subscribe but want to make sure the HDR is working first....

Smile Xbr65x850c

Back on Nov 8th I picked up an 65" X810C and could not believe how terrible the blacks were (they were GREY at best). After one day of playing with it, I took it back and exchanged it for one of these 65" X850C. It's so much better! After messing with it for a few hours I was able to calibrate it so that it looked as good or better than my old "calibrated" Sony 52" XBR6 LCD from 2007. Coming from Hollywood as a video engineer that works on the content we all watch, it's nice to see content look almost exactly how I remember it looking on set when I shot it. (or at least as close as compressed video can look when compared to the real uncompressed stuff I see all day at work.) The black levels are very even and I'm not seeing any of the blue edges. I have noticed a bit of odd brightness changes in some scenes that I know were not there when we shot it, but that could just be the Auto Contrast Adjustment thing. I think I have that on Low, but may try turning it off to see if this goes away. Have been to busy at work to play with it much. (16 hour days ) I'm also happy to see that Sony changed "Brightness" to "Black Level" since that is what it's always meant to me anyway, and reused the Brightness name for backlight. I just wish they had also changed Contrast to what it real is, "White Level or Gain"... My wife was also able to go to BB and get them to price match the TV at the new $1799 price, so we got $400 back! Thank You BB!

I'm very picky about image quality and would recommend this TV to anyone. Sure the black levels are still not as good as the OLED monitors we use on set, but the value at $1799 is unparalleled. My old 52" XBR6 cost $2899 in 2007!

It works, has been verified as engaging HDR picture mode when HDR content is played. It is nice.

Planning to pull the trigger on the 75" tomorrow. I'm excited to finally replace a 7+ year old DLP with an increasing number of dead pixels. Hoping the experience of switching to this set is a good one!

LOLL...I came from an 11 year old 65" HP DLP! No dead pixels, and still had a beautiful picture up until the day it died earlier this summer.

I think you're going to be just fine. See the calibration spreadsheet in my sig for help with getting your picture setting in place.

I did have some initial sadness about letting my DLP go, and I up until recently I found LED/LCD sets a little underwhelming, but the picture on this set is gorgeous, and blacks are great even if you're coming from a DLP. I also like that is is Android-based and the options for apps that is opened up by that. Enjoy!

Just started watching The Man in the high castle on amazon. Looking through settings I do not see any menu options for HDR? I assume I'm not getting HDR then? Why?

I spoke too soon. Just found the option under Picture Mode. I had to choose it though. It wasn't automatic.

It is engaged, it just doesn't show as selected when you access the Action menu to get to Picture settings because the video stops playing when the action menu is engaged.

We've discussed this repeatedly, and tested and confirmed that HDR mode is getting enabled w/Amazon.com HDR video. Just set all your color settings to B&W in HDR picture mode and then watch some Amazon HDR video.
