The XBR65X900F is part of Sony’s X900F Series. It falls within the high-end price bracket. The TVs in this series come with advanced Sony Xbr65x900f Black Friday Deals 2022 features such as 4K HDR and X-Motion Clarity. The XBR65X900F 65-inch model was released in 2018.
The main TV feature to mention in this Sony XBR65X900F Review is the X1 Extreme processor. This processor is responsible both for excellent color reproduction and for clear motion resolution. It also makes it possible for the TV to handle different games without lags.
Dolby Vision with HDR processing is great when combined with a full array direct LED-backlight system that provides solid object-based enhancement. The XBR65X900F is an LED-backlit LCD TV that provides a high level of brightness and decently dark black color.
Xtended Dynamic Range technology is another feature of the Sony XBR65X900F. If you turn it on it will increase HDR10’s brightness to an even greater extent.
The current model is from Sony and runs on the Android operating system. You can watch content from Amazon Video and Netflix in 4K HDR. Sony also offers Ultra, an exclusive app that allows you to watch Sony Pictures movies. However, this is not a free service. The TV’s internal tuner can support 3840x2160p resolution with a native refresh rate of 120Hz.
The model comes with 20W stereo speakers, which support Dolby Surround. It also features a DTS decoder. In my XBR65X900F Review, I believe Sony could offer speakers with a stronger sound for the same TV price.
The TV has four HDMI inputs, all with 4K HDR support, three USB ports and composite video input. It also features ethernet, optical audio output and headphone/subwoofer output. This model can offer wireless connectivity via Bluetooth and Wi-Fi.

The Sony XBR65X900F has a large multifunctional remote control. It looks a little old-fashioned, but it works. It does have a dedicated button for Google Assistant and voice control. If paired with an Alexa speaker, the TV can also take voice commands. The TV comes with the manual Sony XBR65X900F and remote control. It also includes batteries, power cord and an IR blaster.
It has a remarkable peak brightness of 666.94cd/m in a full field white. The luminance is increased by 10 percent, to 1,227.07cd/m 2,. This is brighter than HDR10 mastering level. The TV’s dimmable array rearlight shows a modest black level at 0.06cd/m even with a 100 percent white square. This gives it an outstanding 11,116:1 contrast ratio. Although it isn’t quite as high, the TCL 6-series contrast ratio can achieve a lower 0.01cd/m2 level black, despite being less bright.
These contrast numbers are still excellent, with the X900F being one of our brightest TVs (under certain conditions). An OLED TV, such as the Sony A1E series of OLEDs or LG’s C7P, will give you better performance and a slimmer, more attractive design.
The Sony model has a simple, sleek design. It is so thin that you don’t even notice it when the TV turns on. The TV stands on two sturdy brushed-metal feet, on which are the channels for cable management. The OLED from the company is comparable to LG’s OLED models. Its high-end LCD TVs are brighter and more vivid than LG’s. You get a strong package when you add the robust functionality and connected features of Android TV. Sony’s newest flagship LCD series is the X900F. It offers premium design and performance, but not quite to the same level as OLED. This LCD is one of the most vibrant we have seen, and it has excellent color performance. It costs $2,199.99 for 65-inch XBR65X900F, which is quite expensive for a 4K LCD TV. However, mediocre black levels, and a slow interface keep it from a higher rating.
Sony’s minimalistic, angular aesthetic continues with the X900F. The screen is surrounded with thin, flat, brushed black metallic bezels that have sharp corners. A slim, chrome-colored band is used as an accent on the bottom bezel. It is also low enough to not catch any distracting glares from overhead lights. The indicator LED is located in the middle, just below the small Sony logo. It serves as the only visual flair on the TV’s front. The TV’s screen is supported by two rectangular gray metallic legs, which extend outwardly from the TV.

The power cable connects to the port at the rear of the screen. The left side has two rectangular recesses for all other connections. The one holds the HDMI port, two USB 2.0 ports and four 3.5mm connectors. These can be used for headphones/audio output, component video in, and remote control with an IR blaster. The second recess houses three additional HDMI ports: a USB 3.0 port and two USB 2.0 ports. It also contains an Ethernet port, a component video in, and an antenna/cable connector.

Sony’s smart TVs are powered by the Android TV platform, which allows for services, apps, streaming media, and an interface. Android TV is extremely powerful as we have seen with the Nvidia ShieldTV. Although it does not have the same number of Android apps as the tablet and smartphone versions, the Google Play Store has hundreds of useful apps across many subjects. To start, most of the major streaming services are available: Amazon Video, Google Play Movies & TV and Hulu as well as YouTube, Google Play Music, iHeartRadio and Spotify.

Google Cast is supported by the X900F right out of the box. It works exactly as if there was a Google Chromecast U plugged in to the TV.

Despite all its software flexibility, the X900F’s processing power doesn’t seem to be up to the task. Sometimes, the Android TV interface was a bit jerky during testing. Some apps also crashed occasionally. The X900F’s interface is slow and jerky, even though it is wirelessly connected to the TV to control the microphone.
The X900F supports high-dynamic range ( HDR), signals in both HDR10 (HLG) and hybrid log gamma. The X900F supports Dolby Vision streaming through online services. The Cinema Pro mode shows the X900F with its X-tended dynamic range and local dimming features set at High.
How We Test TVEven though it produces decent black levels, the panel’s brightness is a problem. Depending on the Local Dimming or X-tended Dynamic range settings, the X900F may produce a lot of light bloom. This can cause a haze to appear over dark areas of the screen if there are brighter parts next to them. The light bloom can be reduced by lowering these settings, but it can also decrease the effective contrast. The X900F generally shows excellent color in Cinema Pro mode using the Expert 1 white balance setting. The X900F can achieve broadcast-standard color accuracy while showing little drift for primary colors, such as cyans or yellows. Magentas are warmer than we would prefer.
