    Its a good choice

    After buying a refurbished samsung q7 at micro center which didn't work (no wonder they had 7 in stock) , then a floor model OLED which was burned in ( I know.. who'd buy a floor model OLED that played the same thing for a year and expect otherwise? ) I finally decided to buy a brand new TV for my bedroom instead of hunting for bargains. My other TV is a LG C7 OLED in 65. Well, the sony looks great as you can see in the store. The remote is nice and solid. Many problems with samsung remotes on the web. I believe the motion handling is a bit smoother on my OLED. What I'd like to comment on is the TVs on the market generally have poor quality hardware, including the WIFI and bluetooth, PSUs and boards. I don't suspect any of them will last like the old TVs, with a nod to planned obsolescence. I suspect the quality of the electronics are better in the SONY. This is based partially on personal experience with multiple TVs as well as a voracious review of all online complaints and troubleshooting across brands. The x950G also has the most robust processor, and given that we are overtaxing these beasts already with video processing and smart TVing I think it's a warranted upgrade, though apparently the x900Fs picture is quite similar in general. Ive gamed with xbox 1x in 4k at 60z and don't see problems with tearing/stutters, though admit the samsung gaming tech (free sync) almost made me go that route. If you don't mind the burn-in risk with an OLED and have the cash i'd say upgrade to one of those, but if you want to leave the TV on a fair bit, have kids that will do stupid things at times, want to game forever and generally not worry about burn-in then this TV is likely your best bet.

    A++ Color/depth-blooming annoying

    The color and depth of picture is instantly noticeable and stunning. Watching every movie again for the first time. Blooming is pretty annoying for me but my wife doesn't notice it. Still playing with settings to reduce. Almost there... USB play when working 100% is far superior to the Samsung this tv replaced. Picture is great, defaults to English!!!! and audio passthrough blows Samsung away. At times it glitches out and sometimes freezes. Only included app that really works is Netflix. Excited for Google play library but currently all the other apps currently have issues streaming clearly. Tons of picture options, can't wait to dive in and tweak everything. Using Google Assistant more than I thought, pretty cool feature especially when connected with other devices in living room. Bravia sync can almost replace Harmony hub if lg Blu Ray player would connect. Very happy with purchase even though blooming issues. Confident they can be minimized with further adjustments.

    Now that we’ve had a Samsung 50 flat screen for several years its hard to recreate the Wow factor that that TV provided but I wanted to upgrade to a Smart TV and also squeeze a little more space out of the living room with a 65 inch. The Sony was highly touted and seems to live up to the hype however truth be told I’m sure all the top brands are great. The Sony has Google Assistant to search movies etc. and the first thing I learned at home was that Google searches for Google. I subscribe to Amazon Prime and Prime Music and Netflix. By the end of the week I ordered a Firetv Cube, much happier with Alexa.

    Great TV, Great Picture

    Love the picture but, the TV was designed with the "looks" of the TV as the primary goal. It is not user friendly when you are connecting ancillary devices. Because the jacks are recessed you must reach behind the TV and insert plugs in an upward direction in a very small space. Again, not user friendly.

    Great quality for the price. "Go/Hey Google" built in function a bit frustrating as it doesn't always register. Remember it can only produce it's tremendous quality with a tremendous signal. They make sure you do in store, but service providers and other media aren't there yet. It will get better over time.

    The reason I gave it only four stars because without local dimming on the screen look terrible blooming shows when the screen is black but with local dimming on 4K looks great just hate the blooming problem

    You can command the tv to then on or turn off. Can download many apps from google play and quality looks great overall.
