Crutchfield: Sony XBR-X900F 4K Ultra HD LED TVs
Crutchfield: How to Unbox a Sony TV
Sony XBR-65X900F - The Android TV OS supports voice control via Google Home- and Amazon Alexa-compatible voice control assistants
Item # 15865X900F | MFR # XBR65X900F
Instant Savings: -$200.00
Last year, Sony's X900E-series 4K TVs were among our top sellers, and made several "Best of the Year" lists. The 2018 X900F series replaces those models, and offers improved picture contrast, black levels, and video processing. If you've not yet experienced the lifelike quality of a 4K/HDR picture, the 65" Sony XBR-65X900F will amaze you.
What elevates the XBR-65X900F above competing TVs is Sony's unmatched video processing. Their X1™ Extreme chip packs 40% more processing muscle than Sony's original X1 chip. It tackles two tasks: reducing the compression noise common in streamed video and lower-resolution sources, and upscaling every source to near 4K/HDR quality. Picture quality with 4K streamed content and Ultra HD Blu-ray is spectacular, but you don't need a 4K source to be wowed by this TV.
Before HDR came along a few years back, video standards were based on old-school tube TVs with low brightness capabilities. By comparison, HDR-equipped TVs like the XBR-65X900F can display much greater contrast and a wider color spectrum. You'll see a lot of TVs claim HDR compatibility, but the XBR-65X900F's impressive peak brightness and advanced local dimming really demonstrate what all the HDR buzz is about.
The XBR-65X900F's full-array LED backlight produces precisely localized lighting across the entire screen. By dimming some areas of the screen and boosting others, Sony's latest X-tended Dynamic Range PRO™ technology produces a brightness range that's about 6 times wider than what we've been used to with conventional LED-backlit TVs. And Sony's new X-Motion Clarity™ with 120Hz refresh rate takes care of motion blur without dimming picture brightness.
The XBR-65X900F's built-in Android operating system lets you easily log in to your Google ID to access a huge collection of apps, games and content from Google Play. Use the Chromecast Built-in feature to stream movies, pictures, and TV shows from your iOS or Android-based phone, or from a laptop.
The included remote control lets you activate the built-in Google Assistant simply by pressing the mic button and speaking into the microphone. Use it to adjust the volume, change channels or inputs, and control other basic TV functions. Search for a particular movie or actor just by saying the name. Google Assistant can also answer everyday questions and control connected smart home devices. The XBR-65X900F is also compatible with Amazon Alexa voice control assistants.

Beautiful Picture!! no problems setting up.
Just what we wanted. We love it.
Pros: Great Picture Great Size
Very happy with this TV! Vivid colors and deep blacks. I had read reviews about bad viewing angles, but it's not a problem. Everyone in the room has a great view and the display looks great.
The Sony XBR 900F is as expected a superb TV in every aspect. it has met or exceeded my expectations. I have been thoroughly satisfied with this purchase especially with the awesome service from Crutchfield. Here are the reasons I purchased this TV over the competitors: 1) Sony brand reputation 2) Processor power. especially for HD upscaling to 4K 3) HDR, Dolby Vision 4) Sleek aesthetics. Thin black bezel. 5) Google home (AI) capability
Pros: See review
Cons: The remote controller could be better - volume button can't control my Sonos volume.
We both said "wow" more than once when we saw what 4k UHD looks like. Amazing!
Great picture, very pleased with everything.
Pros: Great picture
I have had the 900F for a week and I have no complaints so far. The set up was easy. The picture quality is excellent out of the box with clean, bright colors, excellent contrast, rich blacks and outstanding motion control. Better than some OLED and QLED sets I have seen. I was very happy with the support from Crutchfield. They were extremely helpful. The first two units were damaged in transit and they were quick to take care of the problem in both cases. I recommend them without hesitation.
Looks great. Pretty case & picture is beautiful. Paired with the Yamaha soundbar.
Pros: +Case +Ability to hide wires in legs +Picture +Details
Without a doubt this is a superior TV. EVerything works smoothly and is easy to navigate. Picture quality is excellent right out of the box. The best 4K picture I have experienced with deep rich blacks and color the way only Sony can produce. I give this tv a 5 star rating with only minor flaws of design in the need for a new remote cosmetically and better cord hiding in the back of the tv.
Pros: Set up is easy and picture is beautiful right out of the box. Design is excellent .
Cons: Remote works well for function but is arkward and a little clumsy. Needs redesigned. Hiding the cords could be improved.
Very happy with the tv. I chose it over OLED due to the fact that it would mainly be used for gaming and burn in can't be completely ruled out of the OLED TV's. Great picture over my son's 55 inch 2 to 3 year old Sony. The sound is ok so a Samsung gaming sound bar was bought at the same time...... Which is an upgrade over the tv but not as good as my surround sound in living room, obviously. There is light bleed from bright objects if viewed from the side. Tv needs to be watched straight on. Blacks are very good when watched straight on. No bezel hardly so it looks smaller than my Panasonic plasma that is 65 inches and same size. Almost felt I needed to go bigger once I put it on the stand but I didn't want to over power the room it is in. PS4 pro was plugged into the wrong HDMI at first and was changed a few days later being that only HDMI 2 and 3 support the highest resolution setting and HDR on PS4 pro. People have complained of the Android powered smart TV apps. It is not anything to be concerned with. The apps work fine and are easy to find. The remote has voice search and the tv will link to an Android phone. Your phone can be used as a remote or used to cast youtube videos that you are watching on your phone to the TV instead. You can turn the screen on your phone off and use tv. I felt this tv was the next best thing after the LG OLED TV's so if you're not gaming check those out too. If you are a gamer then you may want to check this tv out. You can't go wrong.
Pros: Great picture, clean look, great for gaming, no fear of possible burn in or image retention. The smart menu and apps using Android are not bad like reviewers say.
Cons: Tv needs to be watched straight on and not from side. OLED TV's may be a better choice for tv watching but not gamers due to better blacks.
About a week in with this TV, and we love it overall. Great picture, easy setup. Adjusts to room brightness levels well. A little bit of flare from the way it processes HDR, and occasional "soap opera" effect from X-Motion
Pros: Excellent picture Good Smart TV apps Stylish design Good upscaling Amazing with 4K signal
Cons: Some "flare" from HDR (due to zoned brightness) Some "soap opera" effect when the 120MHz (took me a while to optimize this) ARC communication with my receiver results in longer start-up times than I'd like Needs to come with a real user manual
Replaced my 12 year old 55" Sony XBR Bravia TV with Sony XBR-65X900F. The TV's wall foot print was the same with a greatly enhanced color picture and viewing experience! As usual, Crutchfield's service and delivery was excellent.....
I transitioned from a Sony 49" to Sony 65", both XBR and both with HDR. The images with HDR are excellent; photo quality--reminds me of the differences years ago between color prints and Kodachrome slides. I found the Crutchfield web site to be well above average in terms of detailed specifications available and more models to compare with. I called Crutchfield to talk with an expert about the detailed specs, trying to decide between models, and the expert was articulate, very well informed, and the discussion went very well. So far, so good. Then I had a relatively poor experience with the shipping and delivery of the product. I am accustomed to 2 day delivery; I understand that with a product this large the shipping would be different. UPS changed the delivery date to their last stop in a large city 250 miles from here three different times (first a Monday, then the next day, then the next day) ; a UPS person called on a Monday morning to ask if I would be home Monday and Tuesday; when I told them I was promised a home delivery appointment, they told me that would be set up by a cartage company. The actual delivery was 4 days later. There must be a better way.
Pros: Excellent product. Excellent web site. Excellent customer service.
Cons: Shipping was slow and disorganized.
This Sony TV is a main TV replacement from my previous Panasonic TH-50PZ750U plasma. I still have the plasma TV but have moved it to the bedroom for viewing. After watching the plasma for years with its industry standard top of the line model for its time period I was hopeful that it would come close in color reproduction and seemless picture quality without having to justify the extra money spent for the Sony Z9D or the A1E 2017 models. I am not at all disappointed with my choice!! This new Sony packs the technology and processors that rival my older plasma. It provides a perfect combination of LED brightness and contrast with deep blacks and color saturation with the warmth of a plasma. Watching Star Wars: The Last Jedi in 4K HDR was breath-taking. The subtleties' of the film and the 4K reproduction was awesome! I then watched a standard Blu-Ray of Avatar and was completely blown away. It looked just as good if not slightly better than the 4K Blu-Ray in my opinion. Granted I am using now the Oppo 203 as my video source (which is outstanding and worth every penny) and Audioquest Cinnamon HDMI cables...but WOW! I am sold on this model and would highly recommend to any buyer. Thank you Crutchfield for outstanding customer service (Ember was super super great!), fast delivery, and for being my goto electronics store for all your needs for the past 22 years!!!

4K HDR: For the ultimate in picture quality, this TV pairs the brilliance of 4K clarity with the brightness, color, and detail of High Dynamic Range (HDR). Combined with 4K Ultra HD resolution, HDR video content delivers exceptional detail, color and contrast, with a far wider range of brightness than other video formats. The result is the most lifelike picture TVs have ever been able to create, with brilliant highlights and fine detail.
Note: Please use a premium high speed HDMI cable with 18 Gbps and above to view HDR content.
4K HDR Processor X1 Extreme: Sony's 4K HDR Processor X1 Extreme includes powerful real-time image processing for ultra detailed picture. Made to enhance the latest generation of 4K HDR pictures, the 4K HDR Processor X1 Extreme brings reality to every scene. With 40% more real-time image processing than our renowned 4K Processor X1, it delivers unprecedented picture quality for everything you watch, upscaling content from any source nearer to 4K. The 4K HDR Processor X1 Extreme uses Super Bit Mapping 4K HDR technology, Precision Color Mapping, Object-based HDR Remaster, and Dynamic Contrast Enhancer to produce pure colors at higher brightness levels for truly natural pictures.
4K X-Reality Pro Upscaler w/ Dual Database Processing: Sony's 4K X-Reality Pro Upscaler w/ Dual Database Processing enhances Ultra-HD, HD, and SD images by analyzing and refining images with beautifully natural detail and clarity. One database is used to clean the picture, reducing on-screen noise. The other is used to upscale the resolution, improving clarity. These two powerful image improvement databases work together, dynamically improving pixels in real time. Each database has tens of thousands of references, amassed from our experience creating content for TV and movies over the years. With 4K X-Reality PRO and Dual Database Processing, every image is upscaled closer to true 4K quality for remarkable clarity. This 4K television upscales your favorite TV shows, DVD and Blu-ray movies, even video-on-demand content, and smartphone videos to Ultra-HD.
TRILUMINOS Display: Unique to Sony, a TRILUMINOS Display with its specially developed backlight selectively maps colors across a wider gamut, ensuring subtle colors do not become oversaturated and unnatural. You'll enjoy vivid, authentic images that evoke the emotion in every scene. TRILUMINOS Display uses a wider color spectrum than a conventional flat-panel TV display. A TRILUMINOS Display excels at reproducing reds, greens, and blues; colors that are notoriously difficult for TVs to display accurately. It also displays skin tones beautifully, thanks to its extensive color palette and precise gradation.
X-tended Dynamic Range Pro (6x): X-tended Dynamic Range PRO lets you enjoy beautiful night shots, full of dazzling lights and deeper blacks. With up to 6x the contrast of conventional LED-LCD TVs, this 4K HDR TV with X-tended Dynamic Range PRO ensures dark scenes are darker and bright scenes brighter. By precisely balancing the light output across the screen, dimming some areas and boosting others, X-tended Dynamic Range PRO reveals a brightness range 6x that of a conventional LED-LCD TV. It enhances any source to near HDR quality with a wider range of brightness.
X-Motion Clarity: On some screens, sports and fast action scenes can seem to go by in a blur. Sony's latest X-Motion Clarity technology keeps everything smooth, bright and clear. Each "blink" is individually controlled and its duration optimized, while brightness is boosted when needed, so you won't miss a thing. X-Motion Clarity technology keeps fast action smooth and clear. Moving images are precisely controlled to minimize blur. Even during high speed scenes, pictures stay true with no loss in brightness.
Video Inputs: The Sony Ultra-HD TV is equipped with HDMI 2.0a and 3.5mm video inputs.
Note: The TV has built-in over-the-air HDTV (ATSC) and Clear QAM tuners with an RF-coaxial input, so you don't need a separate set-top box to receive and decode over-the-air HDTV/SDTV or unencrypted Digital Cable signals.
Picture Adjustments: The TV offers a variety of screen, picture, and video adjustments to maximize image quality.
Light Sensor & Advanced Contrast Enhancer (ACE): The TV's built-in Light Sensor automatically adjusts the picture brightness based on the amount of light in the room. As a result, you can enjoy automatic customized picture brightness and save energy without lifting a finger. The televisions Advance Contrast Enhancer (ACE) automatically adjusts backlight and contrast to the most suitable setting judging from the brightness of the screen. This setting is especially effective for dark scenes, and will increase the contrast distinction for the darker picture scenes.
Live Color Technology: Powered by an image processor using an algorithm specially developed by Sony, Live Color is able to reproduce incredibly vivid colors on screen. With four user-adjustable settings available (High/Medium/Low/Off), you can choose just how vivid you want your images to be. Whether it's a brilliant blue sky or a bright red rose, everything stands out so much more with Live Color.
24pTrue Cinema (24p Input Capability): Many movies are filmed at 24 frames per second (fps) and prime time TV programs are video taped at 24p. Seizing on an opportunity, some studios are taking a purist approach and encoding high definition video content such as Blu-ray Disc in 24p. Sony wisely takes advantage of this by including 24p input capability via HDMI on this television producing images that are smooth and natural looking.
ARC (Audio Return Channel): The Audio Return Channel within the television's HDMI 3 input enables the TV, via a single HDMI cable, to send audio data "upstream" to an A/V receiver; increasing user flexibility and eliminating the need for any separate S/PDIF audio connection. This feature allows audio to be sent from the television to your A/V receiver through the same HDMI cable already being used to send audio/video to the television. This eliminates the need for extra cables connected to the TV. ARC allows audio from the TV tuner, Network connection, inserted USB device, HDMI inputs, or any analog connected device to be heard through your ARC compatible AV receiver via the television's HDMI ARC input.
Note: Both the television and the receiver must support ARC for this function to work properly. When connecting an AV receiver that is compatible with Audio Return Channel (ARC), connect it to the TV's HDMI 3 input. If connecting a system that is incompatible Audio Return Channel (ARC), an additional audio connection via Digital Audio Out (Optical) is necessary.
Audio Outputs: The Sony Ultra-HD TV offers analog and digital audio outputs, as well as Bluetooth A2DP.
Note: You can setup the TV to output sound from the TV speakers, the headphone output, and Bluetooth at the same time (this does not include the optical digital output or when the analog output is not set to headphone). Or, you can setup the TV to only output audio from a single output terminal.
S-Force Front Surround: S-Force Front Surround mimics the way the brain correlates sound sources to create proper volume, time lag, and sound wave spectrum; using only left and right speaker channels. By naturally emulating three-dimensional sound fields, you'll enjoy rich, high-fidelity audio across a wider listening area.
ClearAudio+: ClearAudio+ fine-tunes TV sound for an immersive experience that seems to surround you. Hear music, dialog, and surround effects with greater clarity and separation, whatever you're watching.
Digital Sound Enhancement Engine (DSEE): Low-resolution Internet video and other heavily compressed audio files don't always sound so great. A large amount of information gets thrown away when digital audio is compressed. With Digital Sound Enhancement Engine (DSEE) technology, lost frequency components (especially high frequencies) are restored for natural sound with a more spacious feel.
Clear Phase: Sony uses a powerful computer model to analyze and compensate for inaccuracies in speaker response. It does this by "sampling" the speaker frequency with higher precision. This information is fed back to cancel out any peaks or dips in the speaker's natural response; resulting in pure, natural audio with smooth, even reproduction of all frequencies.
EQ: The TV offers four EQ preset sound modes - Standard, Cinema, Music, and Sports. The TV is also equipped with a 7-band EQ (125Hz, 250Hz, 500Hz, 1kHz, 2kHz, 4kHz, 8kHz). You can adjust the level of each band between -12 to +12 dB.
Voice Zoom & Night Mode: The Voice Zoom feature makes voices clearer by lowering background sound. Night mode provides a clear sound at a low volume levels.
Volume Offset & Auto Volume: Volume Offset adjusts the volume level of the current input relative to other inputs. The Advanced Auto Volume function keeps the volume level constant across all programs and advertisements.
TV Position: The speakers of this TV provide different sound images according to how you position the television. You can select between "Table-Top Stand" or "Wall Mount" to provide the best sound quality based on the television's placement.

High ratings, good price and it's a Sony. My 10 year old 46" XBR still works perfectly. I expect that the processing is better than the other brands and watching broadcast (cable) TV is what this will be most used for. My expectations are high. [ Doug Jun 11, 2018 ]
Looking for a slightly larger and more advanced TV to replace a 15 year old Philips. [ Barton May 15, 2018 ]
Yes it looks as if they will change just fine. [ Jim Jul 16, 2018 ]
There is no way to swap the left and right legs. The TV is so great that it may be worth it to get a new stand. [ Terry Jul 16, 2018 ]
Hi, I had the same concerns and ]yes you can. I did use them pointing outward. My sound bar covered the cartoon feet nicely. They are very sturdy. [ ROBERT Jul 16, 2018 ]
I'm not sure. Setup literature uses no words, only drawings. From the drawing, it appears to me that switching is possible (the location of the bolts appears to be indifferent to which leg goes where). The tv is way too heavy and awkward for me to try the switch here. Sorry. [ JOHN K Jul 16, 2018 ]
Looks possible. But I would not do this. There is a weight / stability issue with re directing the feet. [ CAL Jul 16, 2018 ]
I think so but it would be risky for the stability of the tv. The legs are 45 inches wide when used pointing outward. [ Thomas Jul 16, 2018 ]
The TV does not provide a picture-in-picture option. It does have a "Jump" feature that will quickly switch between the last selected channel or input. [ Ryan Jun 29, 2018 ] Staff
Just about 10 3/4" from the set bottom to the center of the hole [ ED R Jun 11, 2018 ]
I'm afraid we don't have enough information on the entire 2018 TV lineup at this time to determine if they will support the new ATSC 3 standards. Please check back with a Crutchfield Advisor by phone (888.955.6000) or online chat in the near future for any updates. [ Larry Apr 17, 2018 ] Staff
