Product Description

Uncover the Detail with 4K HDR

High Dynamic Range (HDR) will change the way you look at TV. Combined with 4K Ultra HD resolution, HDR video content delivers exceptional detail, color and contrast, with a far wider range of brightness than other video formats. The result is the most lifelike picture TVs have ever been able to create, with brilliant highlights and fine detail.

Everything Should Look Like 4K HDR

The newly developed 4K HDR Processor X1 Extreme outperforms the conventional 4K Processor X1 with 40% more real-time image processing power. It takes everything you watch and improves it to near 4K HDR quality. Object-based HDR Remaster technology can detect, analyze and optimize each object in the picture individually to adjust the overall contrast for a more natural and realistic picture on screen.

Full-array Local Dimming

With full-array local dimming technology, you get enhanced contrast and incredible brightness in a stunningly slim design. Add in X-tended Dynamic Range PRO 6x and enjoy six times the contrast range of a conventional LED-edge lit TV by accurately balancing the light output across the screen.

Vibrant Colors, Smooth Gradations

Colors are as rich and vivid as nature’s own thanks to the TRILUMINOS Display with more shades of red, green and blue than ever before. You’ll enjoy rich, authentic images that evoke the emotion in every scene. And, 4K HDR Super Bit Mapping reveals thousands of shades and gradations of light, for sunsets as bright and clear as real life.

X-Motion Clarity

Scenes appear as they do in real life with X-Motion Clarity technology. This revolutionary, best in class technology from Sony refines action on the screen in real time with an incredible refresh rate for action that is brighter and clearer than ever before.

A Masterpiece of Design

Unsightly wires are managed and kept out of sight inside the hidden cable panel structure for a clean, sophisticated look.

A Genius TV, a Smarter Home

Find all the entertainment you can dream of, faster than ever. From movies and TV shows to thousands of apps including your favorite Android games, Sony’s Android TV brings you everything in an instant.

With Google Home and Amazon Alexa compatibility, simply voice-control your TV and ask it to do things like cast and control videos from YouTube with Google Home or change the channel or volume with Amazon Alexa.

Upscale to a More Natural Picture

The difference is clear. You’ll see lifelike detail and stunning clarity, no matter what you're watching. Two powerful image improvement databases work together, dynamically improving images in real time. 4K X-Reality PRO upscales images to near 4K clarity while a second database cleans the picture and reduce on-screen noise. Every single pixel is enhanced beautifully by the powerful 4K HDR Processor X1 Extreme.

Calibration Included By organic madness
The good news is that colors are reference quality right out of the box, so all you really need to do is find a picture mode you like and roll with it. Custom is the most adjustable of 12 presets and the only mode Sony recommends calibrating (grayscale and gamma, not color management) though you’re unlikely to notice a difference. Cinema Pro is arguably the most accurate picture mode for SDR and HDR content while Graphics is all about that 4:4:4 life. The bad news is that it looks awful in a dark room—clouding, flashlighting and blooming make gray the new black. But it is phenomenal in a bright room where, untainted by screen uniformity issues, TRILUMNOS™ Display colors are as soothing as ASMR. In short, Sony x900F is a TV made for the daytime binge. If nighttime viewing is on the agenda, you’ll definitely want to consider a well-rounded alternative.

Excellent tv with a couple of acceptable shortcomi By Kev and Eric
This tv has an amazing picture when viewing 4k content. The colors and black level are exceptional. I find the remote a little aggravating. If you have fat or clumsy fingers you'll easily accidentally change the mode from streaming content to TV when you're trying to hit a back button or volume control. The volume control is not real responsive but is adequate. The web tv app is horrible but some functions can be done through oral commands. But browsing the web is frustrating at best with moving a floating arrow up and down and left and right with the remote.

Not Perfect By Hank2b
I put this Sony XBR85X900F in my theater room which is devoid of light. I was able to get the picture at the correct brightness and black by using the local evening news show which had four personalities with 4 skin tones (movies are always changing colors). The one problem I have not fixed is that there are four side LED lights that are always shining out of the left (upper and lower) and right (upper and lower) edge that let you see light. Ergo, the picture is a little disappointing compared to my LG OLED set which is in our living room. I wanted the larger 85" TV and I had hoped to save $2,000 over the cost of the LG.

Fabulous picture By geoffz
Amazing clarity, deep blacks, vibrant colors. First class tv. Would buy it again. No regrets.

Good TV for the price By jnl405
Good TV and all professional reviews are accurate except for 1 issue I noticed. Vignetting! 1st time I've seen this in a TV. It so bothersome I went back to the store to see if it was only my TV, but to my surprise even the floor sample had the same issue. Some may find it faint but it bothers me so much I'm exchanging it for a Samsung. Aside from this one shortcoming everything else is perfect for my needs.
