Hello all, I am a Sony XBR-65X850C owner and I decided to read as much of this thread as I could (I started from the beginning). It took me a couple months. I got my TV on 9/26, which apparently wasn't the best timing with the recent price drops, but I'm quite happy with the Sony. Manufacture date is from April and I got it from BB. It's my 2nd. The first one I got had a cracked screen.
First, I want to thank
for their extensive contributions to this board and
who doesn't seem as active now and many others.
I haven't been active on AVS Forum for years (and was mostly in the OTA forums in those days), but with my new TV adventures, it seemed to be a good time to get back on board. So, I apologize for being rusty. Let's see if I can figure out the mention tags.
- Thank you for the USB fix. I was very tired of having to scan my thumb drive every time I put it back into the laptop. I reformatted to NTFS and it works!
I do have a little blue edges/blooming/light bleed or whatever you want to call it, which probably doesn't surprise anyone seeing as how I have the 65", but it's very minor and doesn't distract me much. It's pretty mild on the After Earth video, but it does exist. There is also a mild amount of vertical banding.
I had the Vizio M70-C3 briefly before the Sony and I was never happy with it. The colors have much better saturation and viewing angles are much wider on the Sony.
I upgraded from a 5 year old 52" Sony. The extra real-estate has been great.
