    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.

    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.

    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......

    High value 85" tv

    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.

    I purchased this Sony XB 85" X850F Ultra HD TV after many hours/days of research and a few trips to Best Buy in Concord, NH. This TV is remarkable with the clarity it gives you and multitude of functions. This set replaced a 6 year old 70" Vizio that served us well, but we wanted to upgrade to a newer and larger set and very glad we made the choice to go with this model Sony. Best Buy customer service was excellent with the time they took to educate me on the various newer model TV's, and Sony customer support was also very good to help with any questions I may have had during setup. I hung mine on a wall that accommodated it perfectly and would definitely recommend this set IF you have the room for it in your home (It is quite large). My wife and I enjoy watching this TV as much as going to the Movies!

    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.

    I've had this tv for a month now and it is fantastic. The picture is great and there is no blurring when watching sports. The remote is easy to use and controls the fire tv (although I probably don't need it because so many apps are available). It didn't take long to set it up out of the box. Plenty of Inputs for multiple gaming systems, DVD players, etc. Split screen gaming on a giant tv is next level. The sound isn't bad but I use a sound bar package for movies.

    We haven’t set this tv up at home due to a pending fireplace installation where this will be mounted. In store I was set on a Samsung that was cheaper than the Sony. Almost immediately, the salesman asked if he could show us a couple things. He demonstrated the smoothness of a circle moving in a circle as well as a person in a swinging hammock. The performance between that tv and this Sony were night and day. Because of his knowledge we ended up buying this product!

    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.

    The TV is super good, great colors, super big I am super happy with, but the remote control is garbage can't take more than one digit to change the channels I can press one one number at the time I can't not press 12 or 123 2 or 3 digits at the time if I want channel 123 I take 1 and you can't go to the chanel. I have to use the control from the cable box. So I recommend the TV not the remote control at all.

    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.

    If you watch reviews for this tv on youtube, you will most likely get information for the smaller versions. The 85" is a different tv than the rest of them and is a much better choice. The only thing this tv needs an improvement on is the reflection handling. But, it is still an awesome tv with a great picture.

    Obvious size of the tv makes for a completely new kind of viewing experience, great color, motion and operating system. Easy to setup and get connected to the internet. Make sure if you have cable that you upgrade to a 4K cable box from your provider, it’ll make a world of difference.

    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.

    Best 85 inch television for the money

    I already had a 75 inch version of this television which I loved and as soon as the 85 inch version went on sale I bought it. It is amazing how much bigger an 85 inch TV is compared to the 75. It is hard to beat the picture and quality of the higher end Sony televisions.

    We had a Samsung 65" that we sold and bought this TV to replace it. I can honestly say I hated the Samsung TV and I always had problems with it. This TV is amazing, the picture quality is perfect and it is easy to use and navigate. l would recommend it to anyone! The sound is really good as well.

    This TV has a fantastic picture! We haven’t used very many features, yet; but installed the Wii and the Grands love it. They have a 65” in the basement (purchased from Best Buy) with a PS4. Both TV’s were installed by the Geek Squad and that couldn’t have been a better experience.

    Very happy with this TV. We narrowed between this and the 82" Samsung. So glad we chose this one. Deep blacks makes all the difference. Picture is crisp, settings make it easy to refine the picture and sound for the need. You wont be disappointed
