2018 Sony XBR 900F owners thread (No Price Talk)
I've been bitten by the upgrade bug and I pulled the trigger on a Sony XBR-85X900F through Amazon! It is expected to be delivered this Saturday.
I currently have an LG 65C7P which has already been moved to my master bedroom, in order to make way for the new 85X900F.
We currently sit 7.5 feet from where the TV will be. At that distance, the immersion factor should be amazing!
Some might say why go from an OLED to a FALD unit and the straight answer is SIZE! I simply wanted a bigger TV, and since the 77" OLED is running roughly around $7,000, I opted to save $2,500 and get the much bigger 85" TV.
I can't wait for Saturday and get this bad boy all setup.
I will post a photo of my setup once I get it all hooked up this weekend.
Looking forward to reading through this thread and bombard you with questions. lol
BTW, what should be the first thing I should do to the TV? Settings, break in, etc?
Any housekeeping pointers would be greatly appreciated.
Also, I will be using an AppleTV 4K box for all my streaming needs (Netflix, Prime, YouTube, Infuse Pro), so I don't have to deal with Android TV at all. All the horror stories about Android TV did not affect me at all on my decision to purchase this TV. I will just treat it as if it was a non-smart TV and deal only with the ATV 4K box.
