" ...  great picture, I have nothing bad to say other than they are all too expensive.  ...  "
comment
" ...  I have a 4K Blu-ray player and some 4K Blu-rays and the picture and sound are the best I have experienced on home video but there is a downside. ... From what I have read the picture quality on Sony OLED televisions far surpasses what any LED TV is capable of but it also costs twice as much as this set which is already one of the most expensive LED televisions currently on the market.  ...  "

" ...  My usual football and movie watching TV has been a 46" Sony Bravia that is now > 10 years old.  ...  "

comment
" ...  This Sony XBR75X900F 75-inch TV replaced a old top of the line Panasonic plasma. ... I had held off buying a new 4K set, but now realize I should have done it sooner! ... I continue to be impressed, especially watching true 4K material on Direct TV and Netflix.  ...  "

" ...  I just replaced my old 10 year old Rear Projection 1080P and, visually speaking, this TV is stunning.  ...  "

" ...  Movies still looked like movies but the contrast and detail were far beyond what I could get on my 1080P television. ... I have a 4K Blu-ray player and some 4K Blu-rays and the picture and sound are the best I have experienced on home video but there is a downside. ... With a 4K television, it is very easy to tell the difference between a DVD and Blu-ray which makes watching your old DVD collection a lot less appealing. ... From what I have read the picture quality on Sony OLED televisions far surpasses what any LED TV is capable of but it also costs twice as much as this set which is already one of the most expensive LED televisions currently on the market. ... This set isn't exactly a great value but if you want excellent quality and can't afford OLED it might be your best option.  ...  "

" ...  Once completed I hooked the set to our HD cable box, an external Roku 2 media device and of course the internet via our 5G cable modem. ... I use the internal Android streaming apps for Amazon and Netflix to gain access to the 4K content they offer. ... I’ll soon replace my external Roku with a 4K capable device as my wife and I both prefer their user interface. ... We’ve viewed 4K content on Netflix and it is quite amazing. ... It’s easy to get spoiled watching it, kind of like when we first purchased a HD tv. ... It make you wish everything was in 4K but having said that regular HD looks great on this set also. ... Overall I’m very happy with this set and would recommend it for anyone looking to purchase a 4K smart TV.  ...  "

" ...  The regular picture over my WiFi looks better than the 4K blue ray on my 4K Samsung.  ...  "

" ...  I'm not using the built-in Android TV streaming stuff because I prefer streaming with my Nvidia Shield but this television can be used to stream Netflix, Amazon Prime, YouTube and others without an external device--but if you are accustomed to using Roku you will probably want to keep using it because the channel selection is much larger than you can get on the Android TV platform (which is what Chromecast, Nvidia, and this television all use).  ...  "
comment
" ...  - Android TV works SO MUCH better than every other TV interface I've come in contact with. ... I use an NVIDIA Shield TV as my main streaming device, and that still has a number of advantages over the version on the TV so I plan to continue using it even though I could technically just use the TV by itself now.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Maybe the software update performed during the initial setup helped things 5G wise, who knows! ... (FYI, you must configure the settings individually for each HDMI port and for the Smart TV Streaming applications) The settings are designed to produce lifelike color which we prefer. ... I use the internal Android streaming apps for Amazon and Netflix to gain access to the 4K content they offer. ... We use Roku devices on all our sets and having a common interface keeps things simple.  ...  "

comment
" ...  Have not been using the onboard Android system and so far it's been great.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Having read complaints about the responsiveness of Android TV in other reviews, I ordered a Roku Premiere along with the set and so far have only really used that combination. ... The Roku was easy to set up. ... I'm going to delve further into Android TV and into changing settings in the near future and will update this review with anything I learn that seems worth mention.  ...  "

" ...  The display is far improved over the comparable Samsung TV. ... It's really a perfect led panel. ... Samsung would display ads in prime locations.  ...  "
comment
" ...  The screen is killer huge and well lit when a bright scene appears. ... Oh and why I picked this TV over Samsung Offerings with 82 inch screens you ask?  ...  "
comment

" ...  Black levels are also fine as far as I can perceive and the images look good to me in either relatively bright or relatively dim light. ... There is quite noticeable blooming when you view something bright, for example white text, on a dark background.  ...  "
comment
" ...  They are designed to show off the set in a bright Best Buy showroom setting so they make the brightness, color and sharpness pop which shows off the capabilities of the screen but also makes everything look ridiculously unnatural. ... The blacks were very, very black and the colors much more nuanced.  ...  "

Was tempted to go to 85" but it would actually be a bit too big and the price was double, not worth it for the slight increase in size.  ...  "
