Why do you even own a Sony as opposed to scaring up another plasma to go with the one you already have. As informative as you've been with many many many many posts, your last one is sour and disappointing.
bro U just "owned yourself ".sorry you didn't get it I thought you would laugh (really) that the intent ....You drinking caffeine to nite ? ....you know how that can be ?
just trying to help the newbies that can only turn a set on
While I take a break from the serious mind challenge threads around here that's all I'm sure you've seen those (probably been there to )
Andy to be honest I'm surprised how trivial the Sony threads are in general here lately was it always like this ( or *most of the the smart people aren't buying Sony anymore ( or at least the X850C ) or just right now ..what gives ?
I think I've posted more than newbies can handle right now to be honest ( I might just link now) and there are no serious discussions here maybe serious enthusiasts are smart and waiting for bug fixes and manufacture process improvement on a new product ( that would be my game plan ).. I know this well :
I spent almost 40yrs in the Automotive/Transportation/Aviation OEM world that's how it works we had a saying never buy or fly or drive brand new product
trust me. Usually (*something or some things are not designed or made right or material spec right and have to have rolling changes at best ) like the Boeing 787 electrical panels and li batteries for example (no rolling changes there those birds were grounded )
Cost the carriers and Boeing big money maybe some orders 787 -10 is $297.5 M per noy small money 787-9 is $257.1M and 787-8 is 218.3
you loose orders for 4 of those birds and you are talking WAY over over $1B.when you add in spares and product lifecycle support and MRO
revenue and non Boeing MRO support BIG $$ ..........grounding a new bird beyond a week or so for minor specific mro check is baaad news $$
You can not field validate every product variable that's what it is and I Always try to fly in their birds if it ain't brand new product Boeing is one of best bar none
OTOH, FWICS the X850C is OK maybe pretty decent but maybe not all that after all.
Panel contrast is way short of my Sony
did not expect that .........,that counts more than 4K
X850C is weak in the HDMI busines in the TV it can only do 3840x2160/60p (YCbCr4:2:0 8bit
) ON TV NO HDR or D3 in that HDMI chip only tiny bit of Sony Make believe maybe (panel maybe cant do it anyway U need 6200-1000 Nit for hdr it only has 350 in 55" OK but no HDR )I don't know about update fix? chip makers usually supply the reference drivers or firmware code that can't be modify much sooooo ...... I think the X900 series may have different chip ..............(don't know )
No 3840x2160/60p PC or any gaming Only [email protected]
I think Vizio P can beat that HDMI thing and either way they use not bad Sharp ASV panels every bit as good as X850C probably better, Sharp can make good panels they are in fact about twice as bright than X850C . Viz P has (pixel tuning and FALD) SRSLY lot closer to HDR and D3 than X850 will ever be you know that how did that happen ?don't get me wrong I'm no Viz fanboi just tech spec compre here thats all ......they got lotta problems
I think they are coming to get Sony maybe some others but Sony is the weak link SRSLY <no joke >
Remember OLD HYUNDAI compare to NEW one..... who would of ever thought and I was in the business they snuck up on all us ..Toyota too! WE MADE BANK there though
Don't think for a minute it can't happen the writings on the wall Sony TV is on life support and about to get sold anyway <no joke Andy >
It would seem Sony's getting cheap ......I'm disappointed, I have a Sonny and been buying Sony for 25 years so I got skin in the game probably as much or maybe more than you I don't know ? ,sure more than all the newbie around here
I don't see any compelling reason for X850B since I already have a 2013 Sony with a much better panel than X850B when you set aside 2160P which has no bearing on picture quality unless you put your face up in it
. I wanted to consider it though the panel looks to be a deal breaker for me ... and the HDMI . Glad I bought mine when I did
Sonys are made and panels are assembled by Foxconn U know they get busy quality can slip mm mm !
Watch out for Vizio or LG they are coming to sell you set someday I saw a 2015 65"LG LCD with quantum dot or whatever SRSLY that thing can make you drool ....it was not cheap 2014 X950 Sonys (or whatever their flagship is didn't have nothing on it LG has more money for R&D also
Maybe when Sony TV subsidiary gets sold soon per the CEO publicly stated business plan.....( look it up ) <no joke this time> Andy its 's going to happen ... Sony inc. wants out of TV and electronics totally keeping game though SRSLY TV and electronics were never more than 20% of Sony's business in recent memory they are big money in (other businesses)
I'll be waiting for your apology..do that ............we can still be friends
P S: Andy no I wasn't preaching I don't care what people buy not my money ..... other people's money doesn't need any help from me to spend it self ☻ tell me what sets you looking at when you send X850C back or just don't want it anymore like all the other sets I can not remember I won't tell anybody scouts honor
