I guess I've come to terms with not being able to get a 4k tv with passive 3D anytime soon, so I'm now keeping an eye on the x900h and am looking forward to more reviews. An OLED would be nice, but prices prevent me from going with one of them -- unless the Vizio models turn out to be good alternatives to Sony's and LG's.

If there's any reliable reviews of x900hs online yet, I hope links will be posted soon.

The X950H is Sonyís 2020 flagship 4K TV and has the X1Ultimate video processor that boasts Sonyís best up-conversion and motion resolution.

Other advantages of the X950H is more local dimming zones, more LEDs per dimming zone and better local dimming control. The X950H also has Sonyís X-Wide viewing feature that improves the off axis picture quality. The X-Wide feature does very slightly raise the black level, but thatís minimal.

Sony did include one HDMI 2.1 important spec, eARC.

The X950H also has a better built-in audio system.

Sony's X900H has a few advantages over the X950H, like two of the HDMI ports are HDMI 2.1 with all of the serious gamers features, like VRR, and ALLM.

Since the X900H does not have Sony's X-Wide viewing feature the blacks are slightly deeper. It's moderate as Sony has done an excellent job in designing the X-Wide filter so it performs beautifully and have very minimal effect on the minimum luminance level.

Thank you for that assessment, John!

Iím not a gamer at all so the HDMI 2.1 holds little appeal for me at the moment. I may need the X-Wide filter as I do host many movie nights with friends and we get scattered all over the living room. Plus the room can get pretty bright during the day, and the X950H should handle it better.

Based on your take (and the rtings site) Iíll stay on the lookout for an x950H deal.

Based on that description, I think the X950H is tailor-made for your use case and the clearly better choice between these two sets. I'm sure Mr. Zohn will agree.

I agree. But if I see a deal on an LG OLED, all bets are off!

Chiming in, I ended up buying the x900H 55" on Sunday and am pretty damn pleased so far. Ended up getting a great deal from a local store too. Next, I need to get a UHD player but that'll be down the road a bit.

Anyone figured out a way to turn off the various motion smoothing effects, etc., for the antenna input? I’ve noticed plenty of things look terrible on regular tv because of this (some shows, sitcoms and some commercials too) — but not local news.

Costco, Best Buy, and other TV sellers have reduced the price of the X900H to $1,169.99 this week, ending 9/13. I expect it is to get rid of stock for the new 2021 TVs to come in.

I have the 65X750H. Is there a major jump in quality, especially picturewise, from 750 to the 900?

I'd say the higher peak brightness and full-array local dimming would make the X900H a nice improvement over the X750H.

Thanks. Coincidentally enough, I placed my order for it just 30 minutes before you posted this.
