The Sony XBR-X900B: A Review
Posted on September 16, 2014
The Sony XBR-X900B is Sony’s newest 4K TV that offers up multiple speakers and two remotes. The TV itself offers the best 4K picture of 2014 to date. It offers good competition to the most recent plasma TVs released. However, the TV is expensive, and not everyone will want to pay over $3,000 for a television set. It has a unique design and is packed full of features, as a $3,000 TV should be.
The TV itself has a thick bezel and a wedge shape. This is not the first TV of 2014 to offer this odd shape for a TV set. The bezel is thin at the top, but gets thicker to accommodate the front-facing speakers. For a TV, the speakers are huge and very prominent, something not everyone will appreciate. The TV is also very large, requiring an equally large stand. The regular remote is flimsy and looks cheap compared to the TV. It offers no backlighting or special features. The secondary remote has a touchpad, which makes navigating the Smart TV menus easier.
- Great picture quality
- Excellent sound
- Offers the most 4K content
- The thin bezel makes the TV look all-screen
- The speakers are not pretty
- Expensive compared to most models
- 3D image is not the greatest
Overall, this TV is a good purchase if you have the money to splurge. However, it’s almost better to wait to see what the holiday season brings, as far as TVs go. The sound and picture quality combined do make this TV stand out above the rest of the 4K lineup.
