Sony XBR65X900F: 4K HDR TV With Mighty X1 Extreme Processor

Sony XBR65X900F

As a part of Sony’s X900F series, the XBR65X900F belongs to the high-end price range. All the TVs from this series are endowed with the most advanced features, like 4K HDR, X-Motion Clarity, Dolby Vision, and many others. The XBR65X900F is a 65-inch model that was released in the year of 2018.

Sony’s X1 Extreme processor is, perhaps, the main TV’s feature that has to be mentioned in this Sony XBR65X900F review. This processor is responsible for superior color reproduction, as well as for clean motion resolution. Plus, thanks to it, the TV easily handles different games with no lags.

The Dolby Vision with HDR processing works great in combination with a full-array direct LED-backlight system providing solid object-based enhancement. Additionally, as a LED-backlit LCD TV, the XBR65X900F provides a higher-than-average level of brightness as well as decently deep black color.

Among the other Sony XBR65X900F specs, it’s also worth mentioning the Xtended Dynamic Range technology: if you turn it on, it will enhance HDR10 to even more incredible brightness.

The present model from Sony uses Android operating system. It allows watching content from Amazon Video, Netflix, Vudu, and other apps in 4K HDR quality. There is also Sony’s exclusive Ultra app where you can watch Sony Pictures movies, but, however, not for free. The TV’s internal tuner supports 3840x2160p resolution at 120Hz native refresh rate.

This model is equipped with 20W stereo speakers that support Dolby Surround and feature DTS decoder. However, in my XBR65X900F review, I would like to assert that Sony could provide speakers with a more powerful sound for the TV price.

This TV offers four HDMI inputs (all with 4K HDR support), three USB ports, composite video input, ethernet, optical digital audio output, and headphone/subwoofer output. As for wireless connectivity, this model is able to offer both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.

The Sony XBR65X900F comes with large multifunctional remote control that looks a bit old-school though. However, it offers a voice control feature with a dedicated button for Google Assistant. The TV also accepts voice commands without remote control if paired with an Alexa speaker. Except for Sony XBR65X900F manual and remote control, the TV’s kit also includes batteries, power cord, and IR blaster.

This model from Sony has a simple and sleek design. The aluminum frame is very thin: you stop noticing it as soon as the TV is turned on. It stands on two solid brushed-metal feet on the back of which you will find channels for cable management.

Sony XBR65X900F pros and cons

Pros

  • The feet can be located with the toes in/out, so you can hide stand from the view.
  • The TV is Chromecast capable so you can find content on any mobile device and then watch it on TV.
  • This model offers color-controlled modes: Custom, Theater Pro, and Theater Home that allow varying contrast and brightness.

Cons

  • Android TV works slow and freezes at times.
  • Some apps, like YouTube and Google Play Movies, support 4K but don’t support HDR.
