Sony X900H 4K HDR TV Review | Surprising!

by birtanpublished on November 20, 2020

I figured there would be some interest in this TV but I had no idea it would be so high y'all really showed up in the comments welcome back everyone I'm Caleb Denison and sure I figured there'd be some interest in the Sony x900 H but not this much and certainly not that you also wanted me to compare it to the Samsung q9 TT which is like $1,000 more normally we wouldn't do that I was planning on it anyway you asked for it I'm glad we're on the same page this TV is fairly remarkable I think you're gonna like what I have to say before I get it a picture quality which is really what this review is all about I do want

To point out that we did an unboxing and basic setup video the TV is attractive enough not particularly thin not sure about these legs they're a little on the thin side to Android TV experience is about the same as I experienced on the 8h OLED the setup process was different but ultimately it works just as well which is remarkable because the sony has a much more advanced chip running Android TV let's start with black levels and I gotta be honest with you I was not expecting them to be this good but they are pretty stinking fantastic as you can see here now if I change over to this

Clip on YouTube where we've got this white ball going around you can definitely force it to show some blooming that's to be expected to some degree but it still mitigates the blooming fairly well so I was expecting you know a fairly high zone count for this television but I don't think that's the case to count zones I typically use this clip off of YouTube from ABS forum and the idea is you can stand off at an angle which exacerbates the glow and count how many times the Box dims and brightens and each time that happens it's a zone multiply the horizontal by

The vertical and then you get your zone count but the TV mitigates the blooming so well that it was really hard for me to count eventually I managed to get it and believe it or not I think it's four by four 16 zones which is ridiculously low for such an advanced TV now Sony has told me repeatedly that they don't tell you about the zones because they don't think it's about how many zones you have it's how you use them and I've always dismissed that as marketing speak but you know what this speaks well to that now as for brightness by the numbers it doesn't look huge 750 nits is what I got

When I measured and that's half of what you get with the q9 DT right but I'm not missing anything between the black levels and the brightness you do get HDR content looks fantastic and the bright room performance of this TV has been just fine for me as for color that's something that Sony has always excelled at this TV is no exception I measure this TV using spectra Cal software from portrait display along with a spectra Cal C 6 meter and out of the box in the custom picture preset mode I have never seen a TV be so

Accurate right out of the box I was able to make a few tweaks and get it a little bit closer to reference standard but honestly most people are not going to need to touch it just pick custom and go you want a little bit brighter go ahead and juice that up that's fine but overall the performance is excellent and that's an SDR an HDR same story it overshoots just a little bit airs on the side of brightness a little bit but again really really solid color accuracy now for the gaming portion of this review it's a little complicated let me start with the good news the HDR gaming

Experience on this TV is fantastic the spectral highlights are just glimmering off this television and overall picture quality is outstanding and this is in the game mode input lag I don't have a measurement for if it's anything like the X 950 H is probably gonna be around 18 milliseconds or so unfortunately I have some disappointing news regarding variable refresh rate I did say that if you're gonna game on a Sony this is the model to get and I stand by that the only problem is that variable refresh rate or vrr is not active in this TV right now it will be via firmware update

Down the road but you're gonna have to wait for it a while how long I don't know Sony's not saying when they're gonna deploy that they did however tell me that they'll let me know when it's about to happen so we'll try and let you know in the comments down below so I've spent the past several days with this TV and over and over I keep thinking the same thing how is this TV only $1400 it looks way better than that it's competing with TVs that cost maybe a thousand dollars more no doubt so value absolutely I think Sony's really set the tone here and I'm looking forward to

Seeing what can possibly compete with this TV this year thanks as always for watching everyone are you as excited about the X 900 H as I am drop me a comment down below like subscribe hit that note Anabelle and as always visit Digital Trends calm for the latest tech news and reviews
