I was looking to upgrade my 6.5 year old Sony 55" Bravia TV (KDL-55HX750) and wanted a larger screen with a 4K display. OLED TVs are too pricey at this stage, so I decided to stick with an LED display. I've been a longtime Sony TV owner and decided to stick with the brand for reliability and good picture quality. I selected the XBR65X850F for a few reasons: 65" size, Android TV, 4 HDMI ports, and size/space underneath television to fit my "sound bar".
The TV satisfies my needs of my current media system & setup: 2 Apple TVs, 1 PS4, and 1 TiVo. I am transitioning from using physical media (e.g., Blu-Rays) into pure streaming media. The TV uses the 802.11 ac 5GHz band and so it satisfies high speed downloads & streaming. My setup also uses Sonos Playbase and it fits PERFECTLY underneath this Sony TV. (Yes, the Sonos Playbase provides amazing sound quality with this TV!)
This is my first Android TV and was pleased with the ease of use and options. I paired a Google Home Mini with the Sony TV and now have a pretty cool setup where I can ask Google to play YouTube videos, play music on the TV, display weather... in fact, I'll be in the kitchen with the TV off, and I'll ask Google to open YouTube, it turns on the Sony TV, opens YouTube and starts playing my recommended videos! Very cool setup!
I am satisfied with the 4K picture quality. I do see where other reviews describe the backlight and not so adequate black levels, but since it's an upgrade to my 1080p TV - those "brighter" black levels don't bother me at all. (Plus, I get a lot of daylight in the room, so I appreciate the brightness of the screen.) Since I am no longer using physical media for this TV, the lack of 3D capabilities is not a deficiency for me. I enjoy the pristine, vibrant colors & details of a normal 4K movie.
There is also an IR remote "extender" that allows me to change channels using the Sony TV remote. Again, my current cable box is a TiVo and with this extender, I'm able to change channels using the remote. I haven't figured out how to activate the remote to "record" live tv without having to use the TiVo remote. Plus, I still need to use the TiVo remote to navigate to my recordings. I like how the Sony remote has a "Google" button that allows the voice commands for the Android TV.
Overall, I'm happy with my purchase based on my current needs and setup.
