"Official" 2015 Sony XBR-75X850C - Ultra HD 4K LED 3D HDTV Owners Thread
 
6 Attachment(s)
Hello to all current and soon to be owners of the new 2015 Sony XBR-75X850C Ultra HD 4K LED 3D HDTV. I made this thread so that owners of the 75" class can turn to and talk about. I feel that the 75" class is somewhat different than the 65" class and very different than that 55" Class and certain setting on the 75" will be different as well. So please feel free to join in on the discussion and as any questions you may have. Please no in depth conversations about different brands. We are all here to talk about the Sony 75" class only. Please RESPECT that. Now lets enjoy!!! :)

I just received my 75" on July 31, 2015 and I am still learning and playing about with it. I am Vlogging my experience with the setup and if you want to watch feel free to click the YouTube link below, more to follow:

In reading the other thread that also covers the 55 & 65 850C I agree with you that I believe the 75 is a bit different from the others and it's nice to see a devoted thread. The downside is that it appears there aren't many folks that have the 75 yet as most seem to be buying the 65. You said that you have not had much time to play with yours yet. I would be interested in your thoughts as you go along on the "goods" and the "bads" that you have encountered.
Currently I have a one year old 65X900A and without a doubt it is the best picture on a LCD display that I have ever seen! And this is from an edge lit display to boot. One of the finest TVs Sony has put out to date in the price range. I just wish it was a 70 or 75 :(.

Other than the size and energy usage, what are the specific differences vs. the 65"?

There actually are some 75X850C owners in the other thread. They are just not as vocal. If you have been reading it since the beginning there are some comments on it.

The only real difference I have seen is the 65" seems to prone to a backlight issue in certain circumstances that the 75" isn't. Other than that, they seem to be exactly the same other than the size.

I would be interested in your thoughts as you go along on the "goods" and the "bads" that you have encountered.
Currently I have a one year old 65X900A and without a doubt it is the best picture on a LCD display that I have ever seen! And this is from an edge lit display to boot. One of the finest TVs Sony has put out to date in the price range. I just wish it was a 70 or 75 :(.

Hey Gerry, sorry I been so busy, I am so looking forward to the weekend so that I can really have time to play with my 75. Yea I had to make a thread dedicated to the 75" model those other thread were getting to crazy and I cannot deal with it anymore. So I hope everyone who owns a 75" class will come here and we can all share out experiences. I will be glad to share my good and bads as I go alone. Yea I heard the 900A is a good one as well and yes to bad its not 70 or 75" I got to tell you that the 75" is OMG big, lol...I had to put the stand on myself and had to improvise by using rolled up carpet runners and then pillows on top of that, wait until u see the Vlog I recorded as I was doing it, lol...:)

Here are a few YouTube 4K Screenshots from my Galaxy Note 4 :)

CleCakYngMfd 08-07-2015 07:39 PM

Is this a 60 or 120Hz native panel?

If it is 60hz, is this part of the problem some people have in playing content that 'judders' or 'hiccups' and 120Hz would stream movies/shows better because of the better 'pull-down'?

From the other 1-of-3 Threads on these Sonys, I read of some problems with using the Kodi App where a show or movie doesn't really play smoothly like it should.

I take it that playing BluRays should be ok with either 60 or 120Hz?


(My brother is still figuring out how to put Kodi on his or if he gets it on his 75" Sony, he says it doesn't 'work'. I'm not familiar with how to get the Kodi thing on his TV. I have the AFTV box on my Vizzy-Oh. It works.) ;)

I'm thinking it's better for him to get a hardware box for Kodi and let Kodi and Andy-Roid Sony get better with this over time, yes/no?





Still amazed with Sony's 'TriCorder' color I saw on my brother's 75" Sony.

It is 120Hz. The issues with Kodi are two major things. The first is that Kodi does not support refresh switching on Android so everything is probably playing at 60Hz. The second thing is that the current version of Kodi does not support hardware decoding so it is trying to do all the decoding on the CPU's instead of the dedicated decoding hardware in the TVs. The CPU's in the TV can't handle 4K decoding in software.

There really isn't anything to it. You go into the play store and add it. Then it shows up in the apps section on the main page. There was a while when people were having to sideload it because the verion in the play store wasn't stable yet but that is no longer the case.

I was in Best Buy the other day and I really like the 75" version of the TV. I like the Google software and the semi matte screen. However, when you do a google shopping search on this TV and the Samsung equivalent, their is a huge difference with the non authorized dealers price. Also the new Vizio will list at $3000.

Most of those sites are bait and switch operations who won't really sell you the TV. The prices will be very similar from reputable dealers. The best way to get a true street price for both sets is to call one of the authorized dealers who will discount sets like ABT or Cleveland plasma and ask for their price on both sets.

glad you are all having fun with the new set. I see at BB and online that last years 79X900B is now only a few hundred dollars more... so the big question is, aside from the speakers on 900B and the 4inch larger screen, which set provides a better image when upscaling cable or Satellite images and which one is better at 4k? Or are they so close it makes no difference? Can anyone really say?

They are quite different honestly.

75X850C
VA panel
Android TV
direct lit
VP9 support

79X900B
IPS panel
edge lit with local dimming
Last years apps and software

I am not sure what it means to be better at 4K :)

As far as upscaling goes I find them to be pretty similar.

The 900B is brighter with better viewing angles, it also is very hit or miss with edge lighting issues. Some people have amazing sets and others have major bleed problems. It is hard to edge light a TV that large uniformly.

thanks Dalto. to clarify I meant which set has a better 4k image. from your post it seems that you believe the images themselves are similar except the 900B is brighter. now Im really in a quandary of which one to get.

Please do not mention Vizio as a comparison to the Sony. I do not accept that at all. It is a decent TV but their parts are cheap and that is why they cost less, so there you go, with regards to the Samsung, what is your question? If it is price, then I would say save your money for the Sony or just get what you can afford and what fits your budget. The Samsung and the Sony are both great TVs.

I can say I got mine at ABT for $4K shipped. If you want the name of my rep I will be happy to give it to you in a PM.

I can tell you that the newer class Sony has better upscaling/upconverting especially with their new X1 Chip. If you care about Andriod there is that too. But again, your "Average" consumer will probably not care or notice a difference. I am just being real .

I think the new 75" Viz will be the M series so it won't be low end. Like I said a $3000.00 list is way below the list of Samsung or Sony.

I'm not wild about the Samsung because of the Mirror screens they use. I don't want to see the reflection of my family room on dark scenes.

Yes, please do not mention Vizio again or I will have to ask the Admin to remove your comments.

Hey, I checked out that website and it looks like a great deal but who really knows. Give them a call and find out.

However, I read some consumer reviews and complaints from 2015 and they were very uncomfortable ones, so I will personally stay away from them. IMO.

Example:
March 16, 2015Verified Reviewer

Satisfaction Rating

Like others, I saw a great price on a Samsung TV, Model UN75HU8550FXZA. So I ordered it. 2 Days later, I get the call telling me to call to confirm order. After sitting on hold for 20+ min. finally got through. ** informed me the model I ordered has an inferior panel made by another company. Which is false. I let him know that I was good with the panel that comes with the FACTORY new TV they sold me. He said OK great. Then again he tells me they could sell me the Samsung panel model for a $1000 more.
I once again said, I was good with panel that came in the factory new TV I ordered. ** then was short and said they are now conveniently out of stock. It will be some time before they have anything in to ship. Even though it is still CURRENTLY listed as IN STOCK ships in 1-2 days. I already did some research prior to calling to confirm order, and Samsung is the only one that made the 75" panel for that model. Samsung USA confirmed this. They did say that East Coast TVs is not an authorized dealer. So East Coast TVs are committing straight-up fraud in addition to bait-and-switch, lying to consumers and trying to charge hundreds of dollars more to get the same product they already ordered.
When I called East Coast TVs again to see when my order might ship, they told me they still had no idea when my model would get in. They claimed to have no idea when the TV would be back in stock. I imagine they will leave my order sitting there forever rather than honoring the price they had offered. Just go with a more reputable dealer. I was also hit with the paycheck 2% off lies. They said only if I sent them a money order. No protection with money order. BBB is the next step I guess.

Thanks for your reply IWNE.... They have a "White Glove" service where they set up the TV for you $150.00 ....I don't like this as I like to hook up all equipment myself but this way you can check out the TV's condition and picture before they (delivery service) take off....

You got your best price from ABT?


Thanks,

Larry

LarryMagoo 08-10-2015 01:15 PM

IWNE...Thanks for showing me that review....something smells with these guys....Even after they say they are an official Sony Dealer......

So I will chat with ABT to see what I can a get one for...

Why split up the very active general X850C owners' thread?

I mentioned why in the beginning of this thread. However, I am tired of all the 55" class crap talk and things have gotten out of hand in their. The 55" should have a separate thread altogether and the 65" and 75" should be together. So having a dedicated 75" seems to be a lot calmer and make more sense and I am vlogging my experience. Further, speaking from experience I would not use the same calibrated settings on a 75" as a 65" since TVs even the same model calibrate somewhat differently, not to mention room lighting conditions which is why there are always arguments as to which setting is better for a particular viewer. IMO.

What class do you own?
