Summary: Beautiful TV, excellent picture quality... but Sonyreally dropped the ball with the 4k technology. I specifically looked for 4K compatibility when purchasing a new TV (and receiver) in order to be ready for the next wave of media... as it turns out, this TV doesn’t support (Netflix) streaming in 4K. I now basically own an overpriced TV that won’t play ANY future 4k content... I feel cheated.
Pros: All the connections options I could ever need, Best looking TV out there, Easy To Set Up, Energy Efficient, Good Remote Control, Great Picture Quality, Great Sound Quality, LED-backlit, Outstanding
The best picture quality, can't tolerate exposed front facing speakers. Sorry!

Summary: This TV blows you away with it's picture quality which is light years away from the competitors: Samsung, Panasonic, LG. But the disastrous thing that Sony did to themselves is those front facing speakers blare at you like "deal with me" as I quote from CNET's review. This makes the TV very ugly and most people in this market segment have their favorite audio systems that they would like to use and take pride in.
I've had several people comment that it's the best picture quality they have ever seen

Summary: Outstanding. I've owned the XBR65X900B for about 3 months now and it absolutely blows away any TV I've ever owned. Sony nailed it with this model. The picture is a dream. The color, contrast and clarity are surreal. I've had several people comment that it's the best picture quality they have ever seen. I can't agree more. My set up is Verizon FIOS 75/75, Oppo BDP, Yamaha RX-A1040 Avantage receiver with JBL Studio speakers and sub in a 5.1 array.
