Sony X900H 4K HDR TV Unboxing, setup, and impressions

by birtanpublished on November 20, 2020

Sony has quite a few really good TVs you can buy this year but if you want to do any gaming this is the one you're gonna want to look at welcome back everyone I'm Caleb Denison and today we're taking a look at the so dx900 H also known as the x9 th in Europe which oddly enough is what's printed on this box I really hope I don't open this and find a UK power cord in there anyway Sony's not really doing the HDMI 2.1 thing this year they have a Ark in some of their models but if you want variable refresh rate and sort of an auto low latency mode this is the TV you want to look at so we're gonna go a little

Gaming heavy with this particular TV but as always it's a Sony so I want to see how that processing looks on this TV and also kind of compare it to what we saw from its OLED let's do it here's everything that comes in the box not a ton which I like you've got a set-up guide and some product literature cable management clips power cord batteries these are spacers for wall mounting which I don't need Sony's remote which looks like Sony's remote and then 2 legs no screws though so I think this is gonna be a pretty quick setup and other than that I'm wondering where are the

Breakout cables for composite or component video I wonder if they were left out or if you just don't get them anymore according to Sony setup guide sb1 goes on the right if you're facing the back of the TV SB 2 for the left why they couldn't just use R and L I don't know but hey that goes in nice and easy while we're down here let's just look at the connections there's four HDMI inputs number three is a RC odd that it's not EA RC on the label I presume this is where we would want to plug in a gaming console we'll find out on the full review

So far so good this thing is absolutely like encased in plastic so have fun taking all that off not a huge fan of the cable management you just get those clips and even with them it's a little high off the entertainment stand so you might see that stuff not a deal-breaker just keep that in mind I want to talk about features and price but first let's dig into Android TV as you know Sony uses Android TV so I expect the usual Android TV situation what this is different well yeah we'll go ahead and update and come right back well here we are I guess I mean there was no Android

TV setup wizard which I'm used to doing didn't ask for permissions privacy approvals none of that didn't ask me to sign in to Google which it normally does so I'm not sure what's going on here I'm gonna ask Sony if that's odd but here we are and Android TV it is mostly responsive so far you guys know that I get really upset when it can't keep up with me but yeah you know the TVs looking pretty good we saw some pretty decent screen uniformity so that's a really great start so let's go ahead and pop into settings and check out the default

Picture mode which I expect to be set to standard and it is whoa no it went straight to custom interesting well this is not at all what I'm used to dealing with with Android TV so I'm definitely gonna circle back with Sony I do recall them telling me that it had the latest version but I still don't understand why we didn't see a setup wizard at any rate let's take a look at some content so here we're rolling on content that Sony provided this is actually produced by Jacob and Katie Schwartz you can find it on YouTube but they've licensed it for their own use and put their own little

Bug up there pop into the settings and we've reverted to standard mode when I started watching content so I think as we go through this what we're gonna find is that we're gonna have to go and change the picture settings for each input that we go into gonna pop into picture settings now and just check out the motion which what I always do Motionflow is what we want to look at and right now it's set to custom which I found with Sony is not bad it doesn't have the soap opera effect to the degree that I've seen on other TVs but I'm going to go ahead and

Turn it off so that we can get started with our review and man I gotta say first impressions of the picture quality not bad I'm gonna want to put some stress tests on it and see just how well it stacks up but you know just turn the TV on and watching content I like what I'm seeing so far there are a few things I want to iron out with Sony one was is that a normal Android TV experience now I also want to find out if the firmware update that enables this TV to do EARC variable refresh rate on a low latency mode and all that good HDMI 2.1 stuff has actually been

Deployed so we'll definitely verify that I'm looking forward to doing gaming on this TV and making a comparison to the Samsung q9 TT even though there's a really big price disparity there which is what I want to get to next $1400 for a 65 inch TV with those features is not bad and while it does not have Sony's x1 ultimate or x1 extreme even processor it does have the standard Sony x1 4k processor which is great we're gonna see just how great it is as we get through the main review but like I said earlier I'm liking the way this looks right out of the box in custom mode especially for

A $1400 TV at 65 inches seems like this TV is gonna do really well thanks so much everybody as always for watching what do you think of this TV if a Sony wasn't on your radar before is it on it now leave me a comment down below like subscribe hit that notification bell and as always visit Digital Trends calm for the latest tech news and reviews you
