HLG TV's will have HDMI 2.0b hence is the next iteration which is X9300F and not E.
We will start to see these TV's in April/May
Thanks, I was thinking why all these are on clearance now I know the reason, bought a X9300E couple of night ago tho
The X9300E is an awesome TV and the "F" will be an improvement however also way more expensive.
It wont be a massive difference compared to this model.
You've done well.
There is no X9300f - You linked to the x9000f. The reason Sony isn't updating this model is because its edgelit. All companies are now only doing full array backlight for their high end TV's. Thanks to Sony's x9000e being so popular.
Thanks for the update/correction
I am looking forward getting the F series :-)
If they do end up updating the x930e later in the year to full array it will be the best LED TV ever! Even better than the Z9D. It's the last high end edgelit and the best one ever done, so great way to go out.
I presume full array panel tvs are better than edgelit tvs?
Full array TV's have the backlight in rows across the back of the set. Edgelit has a strip of lights along the left and right sides of the screen. So full array is going to be more uniform in brightness and black levels, can control blooming better, plus limits flash lighting and light bleeding from the panel.
The difference with the edgelit Sony X9300e is the lighting is double the rows on the top and bottom plus a light guiding plate near the middle of the panel. Distributing it evenly and brighter than any other TV has ever been. Also has great local dimming. Making the black levels near OLED. The contrast greater than OLED as it can about 4 times as bright in normal content.
@Monstalova: I am tempted to grab a x9300E 55 inch from the sony store but was after a minimum of 65 inch and I have heard that there will be new models out this year with HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma) and other new features.
It amazes me that this thing would have greater contrast or even come close to an OLED. As my father just got my grandparents a LG E7 and told them it is the bee knees. I am a bit torn. I appreciate your reply and information.
OLEDs have a fantastic picture quality but only with 4K and HDR applied. Otherwise it's just pretty good. The brightness is very low even lower than most standard TV's from years ago. Full picture content is around 130 nits of brightness compared to an entry level LCD TV which is at least 200 nits. It's the peak highlights which are brighter (explosions, lightning, etc, at around 700 nits.) Sony X9300e has 750 nits of full screen brightness and over 1500 on peak highlights. Which is what HDR really needs. Plus Sony has the best upscaling thanks to their superior processing chip. So whatever content you watch on any of the Sony X9 series it will look better than other brands. Also burn in is a huge issue with OLEDs still. Rtings on YouTube have done test videos to show how it happens. I returned my OLED last year because of burn in after just two weeks!
@Monstalova: I will be looking to use it mostly for sport but I do not want to buy a TV that will become obsolete in just a few years. My father made the mistake of buying a 65 inch 4k Samsung back in 2015 and he regrets the purchase because within just a year or two it has become obsolete. It has no HDR and obviously is not OLED. So he is worried that his TV is already lacking in features compared with TVs for that are a fraction of the cost of what his was. I am questioning whether it is worth waiting or just pull the trigger. I have a lovely Sony KDL-40NX720 40 inch TV with Corning Gorilla glass and I still think it looks great but I would like to get the most out of my PS4 Pro.
@fowlli14: this TV has all features you need like HDR, HLG, Dolby Vision, 120Hz native, great motion, highest brightness of any TV. It's probably as future proofed as you can get right now. The only thing coming up is 12 bit panels and higher brightness which makes a difference for HDR and especially Dolby Vision. Today's TV is pointless with DV, the panels can't display the extra colour or brightness it's mastered in. Maybe 2-3 years that technology will come in. At a very high price though!
Only thing that will change next year will be HDMI 2.1 but unless you're a PC gamer it will not affect anything. (will allow games to be played 4K @ 120fps) instead of 4K @60fps with these models.
I need a new tv my curve Samsung tv ended up being fualty after 2 years so Samsung full refunded my $5000
Now on the hunt for something
What’s so good about this one
The Sony X9300E IMO is the best LED TV on the market at this stage.
If you want to go one step further and with the cash that you have, get the LG 65 OLED C8T when it is released.
That lg tv don’t work for me as the tv will be mounted on the wallah all the usb etc are all in the back of that tv
The E7 now has them on the side.
OLED is clearly superior to this Sony, and what you had before.
There are only 4 in stock
This TV has been down to $2800 at JB when they had their 20% off sale.
When was that?
February 15 was the last time they had 20% off TV's.
Does anyone know what is the major difference between X9000E and X9300E and X8500E all 65”?
According to sony website X8500E has Edge Led panel but X9000E has Direct led panel, surprisingly X9300E 65” has Edge led panel again!!
What makes X9300E superior to X9000E and more expensive ??
Only difference I saw was image processing and speakers.
