    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.

    Great uprez from 1080, 4k from 35mm clean

    I originally got the Sony x930e 65" for Dolby Vision. I wasn't satisfied with the screen size for movies that have an aspect ratio of 2:35:1 or wider like Star Wars. Then when I found out that Disney wasn't stick with Dolby Vision for all their 4k release. So I decided to get the 85" HDR only X-850F! It totally blew my mind how much detail in Actor's expression and background actors misadventures I didn't see, or notice as well before. I'm in the middle of revising my old library and building my 4k. The uprezing looks pretty impressive. I may not buy over some of my bluray. So far, it's been like adult Christmas every time I watch a movie. This size or higher is definitely for cinema lovers.

    Amazing Giant Screen - Go Big and Stay Home!

    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 will start off by saying this TV is quite large. Duh! That's why you buy an 85 in. It does seem to me my older Samsung TV has a better picture and is not a 4k TV. However, I did kind of start tinkering with some of the settings and the picture is getting somewhat better. When there is a strobe effect In a scene, sometimes there will be a bunch of squares. I guess that has something to do with the refresh rate. The default settings are not the greatest ecspecially the sports. Wish Sony would give some other fine tuning picture quality adjustments. Overall I am satisfied with my purchase. Plus it was on sale.

    Excellent Sound for the Price

    I've been very happy with this soundbar; the quality is excellent and it switches easily between the cast device, cable, and playfi inputs. It's an exceptional value for the price and a nice complement to the Definitive products elsewhere in the house. My only complaint: the remote it comes with is really awful! Its tiny, easily lost, cheaply made, and completely disposable. It's been difficult to get it to work with the TV/cable remote, but we finally figured it out. I highly recommend ditching the remote provided asap and integrating with another remote control.

    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.

    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

    No DirectTV Now

    The main reason I bought this TV is because the salesperson said it had every app necessary for streaming. Alas after spending over $3K on the TV I found out that it doesn’t have the DirectTV Now app which is the only reason I bought it (was trying to get rid of cable and after thorough research decided to go with DirectTV now). So this was a disappointment. The other features are ok but overall the TV is not worth the price.

    I would have given this TV a 5 star . But the only issue is the remote it is not very smart to connect with the cable box and surround system on its own , it requires iR blaster ( long wire from the tv to touch the cable box or the surround for the remote to recognize)

    Upgraded to this from my old mitsu DLP. The difference is undeniable. As a bonus this TV has modes that minimize the soap opera effect that I see on most other tvs. Only a 4 star because of cost. Firmware updates have been delayed by Sony FYI.

    this TV is superior to the Samsung which is a little spotty and shows pixels. you do not have to worry about that with this TV. 4 stars only because you have to close out apps after using them or it freezes.

    Great TV, picture and sound. I would recommend the TV to anyone. Dealing with Best buy is not the easiest thing to do when they didn't come the day they were suppose to. Now that its installed, love it.

    I couldn’t be happier with my new purchase. Combined with my home theater system it is like a movie theater right at home. You won’t find a better tv as far as quality/size/price anywhere on the market.

    I probably would've gone with the 85 samsung, as that's what I always get, but the guy sold us on the Sony and its good, just not as user friendly as a samsung.

    Picture quality and size are great. The apps are limited though. I find that my xbox1 has better apps. Also the menu and app loading hangs up and is slow at times.
