Mid-sized TV Recommendation for the Bedroom

Looking for a decent TV for the master bedroom. Pillow is 12' from wall where the tv will be mounted to the wall. OLED probably too expensive. So I am looking for an LCD that does well with movies and has a good UI. Like the interface with my 950g in the family room. Perhaps a Sony. Have the TCL 55r613 in there now and not impressed with the tv.....

What’s your budget? If you weren’t impressed with the TCL, perhaps a 55” x900F since you’re already familiar with the Sony UI?

Why not the 55X950G if you're happy with the one you have now?

That's what I have in my bedroom and no complaints.

What about the 850g? It has the same user interface as the 950g. It would be a step down from the 950, but it is the bedroom.

If you can wait, this year's X900H is positioned as the successor to the X850G, so will have similar price but offer far superior performance. While the X850G is edge-lit and uses an IPS panel, the X900H will have a VA panel and full-array local dimming, making it more similar to the more expensive models.

When I bought my X950G at BB, they had an X850G sitting next to it. I personally don't see how they sold any. AAMOF, the sales guy said, "that 850 sure has sold a lot of the 950s."

Good to know. That sounds like a winner for the bedroom. Now when will it debut?

Robert Zohn of Value Electronics told me it's launching early to mid May.

That's the X950H, the step-up model and successor to the X950G (obvious enough from the name).

X950H is Sony's highest-end 4K LCD of 2020, and comes in 49", 55", 65", 75" and 85" screen sizes. The X900H is a mid-range set and will come in 55", 65", 75" and 85" screen sizes.

There are a few differences, like the X950H featuring X-Wide Angle on 55"-85" models, which improves viewing angles at the expense of native contrast. It also uses the X1 Ultimate processor (currently Sony's best picture processor), has higher peak brightness (in excess of 1,000 nits), etc.

The X900H on the other hand will use a conventional VA panel without X-Wide Angle layer, which means worse picture off-axis but deeper blacks. It has the older (but still very competent) X1 picture processor and lower peak brightness.

For gamers, the X900H has one potential advantage in that it will feature an HDMI 2.1 port and support features like Variable Refresh Rate and Auto Low Latency Mode, in addition to eARC which is already supported on various other Sony TVs (including the X950H).

I see that now. I guess I was confused because they also have an 800H listed
