“After purchasing my Apple TV 4K, I began searching for a 4K/HDR television, so I could truly enjoy the set top box’s ability to show movies and shows in 4K HDR quality,” Dennis Sellers writes for Apple World Today. “I don’t have the moolah for an OLED TV set, so after much research, I settled on Sony’s XBR-X900E-Series 55-inch—Class HDR UHD Smart LED TV.”

“It’s a top notch HDR TV that occupies the sweet spot between performance, price, and size. I wanted a 65-inch TV set, but my wife is insistent that anything bigger than 55 inches is too big for our living room. And, as the saying goes, ‘if momma ain’t happy, ain’t nobody happy,'” Sellers writes. “So 55 inches it was.”

“The X900E’s display is gorgeous. It’s not OLED quality, but comes close. UHD image clarity is excellent, the contrast ratio is very good, brightness is superb, and HDR allows for bright, vivid colors,” Sellers writes. “The Sony set boasts the 4K X-Reality Pro Image Processor, 4K HDR Processor X1, and TRILUMINOS Panel, and Full Array Local Dimming.”

MacDailyNews Take: 55-inches is too small for most living rooms. 😉

But the Sony XBRX900E-Series sets, regardless of the size, are excellent. They’re not in the same class as Sony’s XBR55A1E 55-Inch 4K Ultra HD Smart BRAVIA OLED TV models, of course, but they’re very nice just the same.

Cut out a couple planks of cardboard to show your spouse the actual size differences in your living room before buying.

Check out the Sony XBR65X900E 65-Inch 4K Ultra HD Smart LED TV and the Sony XBR75X900E 75-Inch 4K Ultra HD Smart LED TV before you make your final decision.
