    Go big or........

    Posted .

    After endless research and the help of knowledgeable Best Buy associates we decided to purchase the Sony X850F. We've only had this TV a month and a half so we are still learning to navigate the menu and the remote control. The initial set up was easy. Just follow instructions on the screen with the remote. The remote has a built in Google Assistant which performs tasks by voice command. The remote also has built in Netflix and Google Play buttons. Although we haven't seen a 4K resolution movie yet picture quality has been excellent. It's big, bright, vivid, clear, and crisp. Watching sports has been great! Maybe I can do an updated review after we have had this TV for a while. Looking forward to watching a 4K resolution movie with our home theater......

    Just what I wanted.

    Nice size. Picture quality is great for everything except sports, I notice some blurring while watching football, and basketball, but it's nothing significant seeing as how sports isn't the main reason I bought the T.V. Maybe over time, and after calibration that'll sort itself out. Overall I'm very happy with my purchase.

    I couldn’t be more happier with my TV. The color and the clarity of the screen are breath taken. My movie experience is like being in the theater.

    Got my tv today and started setup. Have been watching a gray screen and spinning blue toilet bowl for 20 minutes now. Tech support no help, said to wait 30 minutes and if no change call back. VERY disappointed. Not what I expect for a $3000 tv. SO NOT impressed!!

    Big screen

    Was wondering if this is normal for 85inches. Was watching netflix, when you open the app. A blank screen will appear and i was watching during night time. Iyou can see in the attached files the white spots on the screen.

    I did a lot of searching and reading before deciding to pull the trigger on this TV. We were looking at the similar sizes by the other manufacturers, and one was a close competitor... but the Sony won out on black levels, contrast, and vivid colors. The 85" is a beast... don't even think about mounting it on a wall without some help. We put a wall mount up, and it was all my wife and I could do to lift it up and hang it on the mount... a third set of hands would have made it much easier! Once it was mounted and connected to the rest of the system and dialed in, we kicked back to watch a movie... and it is worlds ahead of the Mitsubishi 73" DLP we have! Even with just DirecTV or a regular Blu-Ray, the picture is sharp and vivid... but throw in a 4K movie and be prepared to be blown away. There were moments in "A Star is Born" where the concert spotlights would get aimed at the cameras, and it nearly felt like the real thing and I had to squint... it was THAT bright! I can't believe at just how dark the screen can get, either. The contrast between the light and dark is really, really good. Movies like Aquaman, Avengers - Infinity War, Deadpool (I & II) and even Marry Poppins just look fantastic! My wife is not an audio/video nut like I am, and even she says that this TV is amazing, and she wants us to host movie nights with friends and family now. Bring on the pizza, popcorn, and brews! For the price, it's just a solid TV. Best Buy was having a sale so that made the decision just that much easier! I'd highly recommend this TV if you're in the market and it's within your budget.

    Great 85" TV

    My expectations were tempered based on other's reviews. I think, using default settings, you would be disappointed in some combination of action movies and sports if you left the TV as is. But, there is a display settings menu available for a reason and using the preset display options makes a world of difference. Sports, Cinema and Vivid are all useful. Digging into the settings further will fine the the experience more. If you are going to make this type of investment, you need to understand what the motion settings will do and be willing to play with the settings a bit. After some adjustments, I find this to be worth every penny of the $3500 I paid.

    A 100 lb. TV was a little challenging to put on the wall but worth all the effort, Clear beautiful picture, UHD HDR is as real as its gets, sound is good for a TV but even better hooked to my 10.1 surround system. the 85" Sony picture quality is a much better choice over the 82" offered by the completion. The Sony 85" Bravia XBR smart TV will make your home theatre experience awesome. you will smile all day long.

    High value 85" tv

    Posted .

    TV shows a bright, vivid picture. Superb color accuracy out of the box. It also contains the best upscaling processing that I've ever seen. It upscales 1080 content to near 4K quality. Movies from the early 80s and 90s appear with shocking new details now. Motion handling with sports is excellent. It also has reasonably strong black levels. After a few minor adjustments to settings, this TV shows a spectacular picture. I finally have a TV that looks every bit as good as it did when I demoed it in the store. I viewed the 850f side by side with the 900f. Their image appeared identical. The only difference I could discern, is the 900f with it's local dimming setting engaged appeared to have black levels around 15% deeper than the 850f. Definitely not worth the $1,500 difference in price between the two. So I went with the 850f and could not be happier.

    Size matters.

    This isn't the highest model but I opted to go for the size. At 85 inches, it is rather heavy. I thought about wall mounting it like the rest of my TVs but haven't had the opportunity to do so. The hefty weight has allowed Sony to provide it with some decent speakers on a flat panel. The screen technology is also different than the rest of the line as it uses the same screen tech as the model higher. It has your standard set of features and the fact that the TV has many options to choose from as it uses the Android OS. Going back to the size, be prepared to custom make your own TV stand, as I have done. The TV is awesome. I was on the verge of getting a projector for the pre wired media room but the lazy side of me just opted for this monster. All of the goodness of a flat panel with the eye candy of a size. The only issue is very faint vinetting. You'll have to look for it. It isn't obvious but it is there. I also ruled out the Samsung because the stock they had was 82 and well, this was bigger.

    Amazing Giant Screen - Go Big and Stay Home!

    Posted .

    Stunning 4K HD in an 85" package - just amazing. I know the 900F series has FALD and a better processor, but for me, this is far and away the best picture I've ever seen in my living room. The screen is bright, reflections are well controlled, normal HD picture great and 4K UHD Movies (paired with the Sony UBP X700 UHD player) just blew me away. Deducting one star for the inconsistent and still mysterious andoid TV interface - maybe it'll make more sense after I get used to it, but just seems needlessly convoluted. Otherwise - Go Big and Stay Home! PS: saved 25% off list for Black Friday week - thanks Best Buy!

    I had bought the tv sansung - 75" Class - LED - MU8000 Series - 2160p - Smart - 4K UHD TV with HDR, but it came out with a factory defect that they could never fix. A vertical black line across the entire screen. I decided to try SONY and I don't regret it. The picture quality is superior to Sansung, the sound is perfect and the HDR works very well.

    Best TV I have ever watched!!!

    Posted .

    I Have a 75in Sharp quad pixel TV that I thought had a great picture, but I been watching the older version the XBR85-850D in the store and when it went on sale I decided to buy it, when I went to my Best buy store the Sony rep. was there and explained a the difference between the 850D witch is the 2016 model and 850F is 2018 model and wow what a upgrade, just got it installed to day buy the Geek squad on the wall and they did a great job i think i could have done it my self but it weighs 97lbs and if you put to much pressure on the screen you can crack it and did not want to risk damaging a 5000$ TV so it was worth the 200$ to let the Geeks do it and wow what a picture between the voice control and all the 4K content on line defiantly worth the extra money in my option and i still can not believe the picture on this thing i am still just blown away with this TV has to be seen to believe and it hook up to my Yamaha RX-A2060 receiver and i have 7 Klipsch speakers so i don't think i will be going to see a movie in a theater ever again because I think this TV look better than the IMAX and that saying a lot but that how impressed i am with this set up.

    If you don't want to spend the money on a new 2019 85" tv then this 850F won't break your wallet. It's plenty big and bright enough for your viewing experience. Contrast is very good however doesn't have Dolby Vision. Processing is really good so detail is nice. So if you want a very large screen with very good clarity whether you're watching from the front or from the side you won't be disappointed with this model

    Very fast response. Perfect voice command recognition. Built in chrome cast and so many applications and many setting impressed me. The response time of the tv is amazing. The 4k colors are perfect. I don’t need anything more vivid. I also have a 70” Visio tv and this Sony beats it in all respects (note the visio is about the third in price compared to this 85” tv). But this Sony is worth every penny (the Visio also have proven it’s money’s worth, but with a couple of more grands you should get the best as the moments you spend in the front of tv are not going to come back in you life again)

    No reason now to go to a movie theater again

    We got the 85” version and are quite happy with it. I tweaked the black levels and brightness a bit to get the picture to my taste. It’s an impressive picture. Every now and then I do notice some of the blacks will be a little washed out on a scene due to the 850F not having local dimming but I knew that going in and was unwilling to pay another $1K for the 900F model. It really doesn’t happen all that often, 95% of the time it’s perfect. I’m planning to use my $1K savings on more home theater fun stuff.

    This TV has great clarity, extremely vibrant color and awesome brightness. We can have the sun shining in behind our theater seats and the picture is still bright. Watching our Lightning Hockey Club play is like sitting on the ice and being in the middle of the game.
