Rated 5 out of 5 by SilverPearl Excellent Top Tier 4k UHD TV
This is an excellent TV for those who truly care about picture quality. The up conversion works great without adding visible artifacts and if you can provide a true 1080p or 4k signal you will be blown away. I haven't noticed any light bleed from it only having edge dimming and if there is, I don't think it is worth the price difference compared to the X950B's. You will not find a flat screen TV with better sound either, period, which is a factor for me as I do not use my main 2 channel audio system for TV. If picture quality is your major purchasing factor, then look no further.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SFCgeF Leader of the Pack
My review of the Sony Bravia XBR65X900B: The television is an excellent and awesome product, 5 stars. It has an excellent picture ( Cinerama, vivid, plausible), grand sound quality, and the features in the operation of the said product are smooth and easy. The speakers are in the most optimal position. I strongly recommend the product and feel that Sony moves constructively toward improving performance and support, and excels in enhancing performance of their products. I have 2 other wide screen televisions and was leaning toward purchasing their (competitor) new model Big screen, Not!!! Thanks Sony, job well done.

Rated 5 out of 5 by salman1025 Awesome picture and awesome sound (for a TV)!
I have this sitting all by itself in my family room and it looks beautiful and sleek. I have a single HDMI cable going into it from my dish receiver (which I've hidden away). The digital content through Netflix (including 4K), Hulu, Playstation Now and ton of other apps means I don't need any other devices. I've even used Pandora on it to just listen to music in the house. Running beautiful 4K slide shows with some background music is perfect for parties. The speakers provide excellent sound for a family room so I don't need a sound bar or any other equipment. The wireless sub-woofer would have been a nice addition.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DougReilly Awsome TV Sony does it again
Wow what a TV ! Been buying Sony TV's for the last 25 years and they have done it again. I thought I was going to buy Samsung this round because they had a brighter and more brilliant TV and sales people were pushing them as the leader but then I found the XBR 65X 900B and never looked back again! The TV is amazing and I could not be any happier in my investment. Way to stay in the game Sony!

Rated 5 out of 5 by littleguy Terrific Picture!
The set up was very easy! Just turn on the set and it walks you through the whole set up. The picture setting needed to be tweaked, but I got on-line and followed suggestions from two sources and when I did this , there was a big improvement over the factory settings.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Todd19383 TV was a dead within 2 months
I purchased my XBR65x900B on 10/4/14 and it was a $3800 brick by 11/30 following a Sony software update. I had done a number of software updates during this time all of which went smoothly. This time around, the update rebooted the TV after which the LED at the bottom of the TV started to blink red 8 times. A quick Google search found other people running into a similar situation. For me, the Sony documented power reset and factory reset processes didn't work. The TV constantly boot loops and is unresponsive to remote and back panel commands. After a number of boots, the TV returns to the black screen with the blinking red lights. I spent an hour on hold with Sony's TV support and never got someone to help me. Thankfully I purchased Best Buy's Geek Squad extended warranty. The GS rep that I spoke with said it sounded like it would require a mother board replacement. He had me try to manually execute the software update using a USB thumb drive, however, the TV failed to recognize the drive. When it worked, the picture and sound quality was great and it interfaced nicely with my U-verse box and Xbox One. The fact that it lasted less than 2 months makes me question my purchase. Buyers beware.
