    Got one of these for $2020 from the Good Guys around a month ago. Only arrived this week.

    Wonderful set, even though I paid a tiny bit too much.

    •  

      Hey mate, good to hear it's a nice TV. I've been price watching for a long time, but wasn't in a huge hurry as I'm getting it for the Xbox One X which doesn't arrive till Nov 7.

        Great TV for gaming. Awesome picture. Paired it with some Logitech Z623s for awesome sound.
        When I first got it was a little disappointed with the fast movement. It almost gave me motion sickness. But after I turned off the true motion, and it was perfect. Just something to keep in mind, if you get one.

        •  

          Great thanks. Yep going in understanding I'll need to tune some settings to taste. My current (oldish) 55" full HD Samsung has motion smoothing and certainly took a few days to get used to it.

      •  

        I still need to tweak mine too!

        The local dimming is meh on lower quality stuff (currently watching Seinfeld in 720p)

        Jusr grabbed an Xbox One S myself, never owned a Blu Ray player and it'll be great when 4k Blu rays are more commonplace and will also get me into buying Blu rays (a mate has Breaking Bad) that I'll likely re watch and the bundle came with some games that I'll play too.

        If I didn't have a PC I'd have waited for the X. But the Xbox isn't my primary gaming platform.

        What's the differences between the 7000E series and 9000E series apart from android TV? Is it really worth the $650 price difference?

        •  

          It seems to be targetted to gamers.
          I bought the cheaper one.

        •  

          @Yoman55555: Also edge lit vs direct LED.

        •  

          X900e has basically won tv of the year. Including cost, specs, features,etc. This is the best quality picture you'll find for a good price. All the specs of the flagship TV's. It has full array local dimming which means OLED blacks and no backlight bleeding or blooming. Get this TV if you want a real 4K experience, other models that have HDR can't show it properly as the brightness, contrast, BT2020 colour range doesn't show enough of a difference to see it. You won't be disappointed with this set…

        •  

          @Monstalova: I ended up getting the 70X which was $950.
          No complaints at all. For what I was after i can't see I would have prefered to pay extra $600.

          @Geryatric:

          A few people took a shot at this and my $0.02 is:

          • processing, based on the X93 getting the X1E chip (which will do Dolby Vision) - the X9E has the X1 which won't be able to do DV
          • backlight+ for the X93 - not present in the X9E
          • weight! in the 65" the X93 is significantly heavier and I think that'll be the case for the 55 as well. The X9E is one of the lightest in its class

  •  

    The Sony X9000E is probably one of the best LCD panels at the moment, however I think viewing angles aren’t great. Good black levels, good motion, good colours and hopefully not a huge amount of DSE as it’s full-array, however, it would be solidly bested by the LG c7 but considering this sale price is hopefully an indication of things to come that means it should drop in price and present good value.

    Secured one thanks OP. Too bad the LG OLED is nowhere near close to this price

  •  

    WHy do Sony have such strange codes for their products. All of them are completely have no clue to what type of product it is. Sure the 55 part is obvious if you know its a tv but for a camera it could be 55 lens or something. Looking at all their tvs, you cant easily tell which is better, eg is the KX better than something else or some other thing.

    •  

      The higher the number the better, so a 7000 is not as good as a 9000 which is not as good as the 93000.

      The letters I think signify the year release, D was last year and E is current.

      Don't know about the KD part though.

      •  

        yes i have spotted the thousands number being better, but my comment was about these codes for all products. You cant tell headphones from a tv or a playstation code, unless you know them of course. For the unfamiliar they are just mumbo jumbo.

        • +2 votes

          Sony have been using KD or a variation of it for 30+ years for their TVs, it's not really confusing. It's the same with headphones MD has been around since the first headphone with the Walkman 30 odd years ago.

          But I'm not sure why you think product model codes are supposed to be meaningful? Apple iPad Pro is model A1709, doesn't say much does it.

        •  

          @plmko:

          Well with codes that long (10 characters) Sony should include a TV in here rather than the meaningless KD, and for headphones prefix those codes with PH.

          I wont comment on apple's as its just a number but if you are going to include alphabetical characters why pick unknowns when you can pick something remotely meaningful, after all they have the "55" in there becaues its 55".

          @ninetyNineCents:

          Product codes don't need to be meaningful.

        •  

          @serpserpserp:
          I never said they must or had too, i simply was saying when they start becoming long why not use meaningful letter comb inations that actually mean something to the lay person rather than other combos that mean nothing.

          You completely missed the point that if theres an option to do something better then why not do so ?

          Would it be better to pick letters that mean something rather than random letters ? Isnt TV better than KD ? or HP than YWQWR

        •  

          @ninetyNineCents:

          Nerp, I didn't miss any point, just making one.

          @serpserpserp:

          Which was obvious, i was clearly coming from a different angle, so im not sure why you stated the obvious.

    Annoying that they dropped this today, I would've bought this if I didn't buy something else.

  • +1 vote

    If you're thinking of buying this TV primarily for gaming, just bear in mind that most Sony models have around double the input lag of other brands. For example this TV has 34ms input lag whereas the equivalent LG LCD (SJ850) has 15ms. This mainly affects games that require quick reflexes like multiplayer FPS.

    • +3 votes

      But the LG LCD is a disgrace in picture compared to this beast of a TV! This has all the specs of a flagship model at less than half the cost! In time that's 0.034 seconds. I'd play with that amount of lag any day when the picture quality is so good. Near OLED blacks, the best motion on any TV released this year, same wide colour gammat as the flagship models, contrast ratio over 6000:1, brightness is over 1000 nits, full array local dimming so basically no backlight bleeding or halo effect, Sonys X1 processor chip which beats any other brand, so they have the best upscaling! Which is so important as most people would be watching 4K content maybe 20% of the time as their still is not that much content especially in the BT2020 HDR range. This TV is not a mid range TV! This is in the Sony 9 series which is the highest range they have… Only the price is midrange which means it's the perfect TV! It has near double the brightness of OLED which might have fractionally better clarity but you lose so much detail in dark scenes and shadows that's why OLEDs are only good in a very dark room while watching 4K HDR content. I've had a LG OLED and now this Sony and I'd pick the Sony X900e definitely!

      • +1 vote

        The time between each frame in a 60fps game is about 16ms, so the Sony basically has an extra frame of delay when compared to most other TVs. This can be noticeable in some games, in particular FPS. Don't get me wrong, this is still a good TV. I just thought the information might be useful for those who play games competitively.

        •  

          Most other TVs are not 15, I checked rtings today and equivalent Samsung range were high 20s.

        •  

          Actually Samsung TVs are low 20s, their highest is 24ms. Even TCL TVs are around 20ms.

        •  

          Most TV's get higher lag when playing with HDR and or 4:4:4 chroma. Sony stays exactly the same. Some 4k Samsung's even reach over 80ms on high specs. I guess do your research on the settings your gona play at and find which tv has the best compromise. This TV might not have the best smart capabilities or Sound,etc. but the one thing this has is the picture quality which is unbelievable! People who are needing competitive gaming should buy a gysnc monitor then and sacrifice picture quality, Hdr, wide colour gammat, upscaling, motion and screen size. Personally there's no way a few milliseconds of lag is worth missing out on Sonys features!

        •  

          According to rtings.com this is incorrect. In fact the exact opposite is true. Most brands have around the same input lag regardless of resolution, but in over half the Sony models the input lag on 1080p signal is up to 17ms worse than 4K. Take for example the next model up from this TV, the X9400E. It has 23.9ms input lag @ 4K+HDR, but a lacklustre 40.7ms @ 1080p. Even worse is Sony's A1E OLED with a dismal 47.3ms input lag @ 1080p, which is the highest recorded 1080p input lag out of all TVs reviewed. I'm curious where you are getting your info from because it just doesn't match up with what I'm seeing.

        •  

          @Ryballs:
          You first problem is quoting Rtings! Please don't believe everything they say. Just take it as a guide. As they will always say - in pc mode these specs apply. Pc mode you lose picture quality and in many TV's HDR! So if you want that, then you have to go to another setting which adds tonnes of lag! Like I said in some Samsung's it's ridiculous lag when not on PC mode. All I'm saying is do your research properly, don't just follow one site or person blindly and look for the fine details that they don't tell you..

        • -1 vote

          @Ryballs:
          The Samsung Mu6300 has over 80ms lag outside game mode!that's at 1080P. At 4k it's 97.9! You got to choose carefully if you know what to look for

  •  

    Does 1080p look any good on this? or does the pixel doubling make it look worse than an equivalent 1080p screen?

    •  

      Sonys X1 processor is the best in the business. Nobody can upscale content up to 4k better than them! If your using a bluray disc or x265 1080P high bitrate files. It transfers it to 4K with almost no loss. Truly epic!

      •  

        How does it compare to LG OLED upscaling?

        •  

          Sony LCD has better upscaling but LG OLED has better contrast and viewing angle.

    •  

      All the reviews say the upscaling is excellent.

    •  

      Cheers for the replies, legends. If you guys own this teev, do you know what options there are to customise the upscaling? I find that most default upscaling is "over-sharpened". Love it when there are options like sharpness control and grain addition. Grain in VLC is awesome when used sparingly - makes a 480p video look almost 720p, and the compression banding in areas of flat colour disappears.

    •  

      Rtings site says sonys the best at this.

  •  

    Does anyone know if this one's good?

    http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/NEW-Sony-X70E-65-4K-UHD-LED-Smart...

    In the market for a new one, using a sony 55" I got like 4 yrs ago that has no smart tv functionality. But not sure if going up to 65" would be good? lol

    or if anyone can reocmmend anything thats decent 65" from the bing lee sale?

    I've had this TV for a while.

    Extremely happy with the picture quality for all types of entertainment and as much as I love having the ability to download android apps… Android TV is unbelievably slow and unresponsive.

    Maybe once a month or two, I have to completely reboot the TV power to get it running properly again. Unfortunate, hopefully, they update it soon.

      You'll love this

        Wonder if this would work well on a xiaomi mi box.

      that's a bugger. This was at the top of my list.

    do you think the price will be back at this price at November time? or not til after new year

    •  

      I think prices will drop on black Friday to lower than this… They usually do to keep inline with American price drops. Probably will rise again and drop just before Christmas or around the new year
