Default Sony 2018 A9F Master series OLED UHD TVs

Sony have unveiled their next model of OLED UHD TV's - model is A9F.

https://www.sony.com/electronics/tel...xbr-a9f-series

Looks like they are returning to the lean back model of the A1 from 2017 - 2018's A8 series removed that for the typical vertical stand seen on most TV's.

Some more reviews and info:

No 77" model, very disappointing. They've dumped them just like Panasonic have done.

I agree and wish Sony would add the A9F in the 77" class, but all it not bad. Sony is still manufacturing the 77" A1E and if you like LG has the new 77" C8 and we just received our first allocation of 77" W8s.

We have three choices for 77" OLED TVs and although they have varied attributes to match your specific needs they all deliver a speculator image.

Prices are aggressive so it's a good time to consider a 77" OLED.

The 77" OLED would be last years tech though so unless Sony starts giving them away there is no incentive to go that route.

It's really unfortunate on the LG side of things that they put such a huge markup on the W series because the picture quality is no different than the C series. I would love a W series for it's on wall convenience however not with that ridiculous and pointless soundbar. LG really needs to start offering the option of a media box in it's place for those that don't need a speaker for the tv.

When LG introduced these super slim sets a couple years ago on their commercial variants, the OLED signage displays there was a media box so they already had the ability and product available then and LG still offers those products todays. They just need to extend to the consumer tv's and possibly offer a bit more connectivity options in the box.

Finally got an A9F last week. I've upgrade from a 9 year old Panasonic LCD, which still works well and is now our second TV.
Been playing around with this new one and loving it completely.

Haven't upgraded my BR player to a 4K one yet - I think I'll be getting one for my birthday in a few weeks - but even Blu's look amazing on this screen. Clarity and sharpness are excellent, and the contrast with those OLED blacks are so good.
I've had no issues with dimming yet which effected earlier OLED's from Sony, but I don't watch much TV with static content. This set is purely for movies and TV, no sport or gaming.

I don't have an issue with the lean back design, fits nicely on my TV stand. Using the screen as a center channel now with my basic 5.1 amp and sounds really good as well.

Haven't had a chance to check out Netflix Calibrated Mode yet, but it looks like its pretty much just a image preset. Watched a couple of things in Ultra HD 4K on Netflix (Apostle was one of them) and wow... yeah, loving it!

Still playing around with it, but so far its gorgeous.
