Sony XBR-79X900B

 

With a robust built-in sound system, the Sony XBR-65X900B is one of the best 4K HDTVs you can buy right now, but until 4K content becomes widely available, it's not worth the high cost.

Bright picture with accurate colors. Attractive design. Powerful sound system. Lots of features.

Expensive. Poor black levels for the price. 4K content selection isn't compelling yet.

A Review of the Sony XBR79X900B 79-Inch 4K Ultra HD 120Hz 3D Smart LED TV

 

Sony's Braiva line of 4K ultra HD TVs is already well known among 4K TV fans and tech watchers for its overall quality and feature rich specifications. The Sony XBR79X900B 79-Inch 4K ultra HD 120Hz 3D Smart LED TV is no exception to this and in fact...

Excellent visual display ; Best built-in speakers on the 4K TV market ; Full connectivity ; Includes access to the Sony 4K media player ; Exceptional color vibrancy with Triluminous Display

One really heavy, bulky TV ; Off-angle viewing could use work ; Overly expensive ; Less than intuitive smart TV interface

If you're willing to pay a little bit more than might be the fairest possible price for this TV, then the Sony XBR79X900B will give you one fantastic 4K TV system with the best sound you'll find on the market.

Sony XBR-79X900B Review – 79-inch 4K Ultra LED HDTV

 

Let's begin with the innovative Wedge Design, which remained as the talk of the town for so many weeks after it's introduced. It's thin at the top and grows thicker to have enough depth for the side mounted front-facing speakers. This kind of design...

Great TV for hockey, sports,and cinema

 

I bought this TV to replace an 82" DLP. Overall size is much better than the DLP and the picture quality is amazing and the sound is better than my home theatre.
