The X900E looks true-to-life with really deep blacks, clear details, and captivating colors. Pictures look realistic with lots of details. There’s great depth to them and you’ll be able to see everything in the picture stand out. Dark scenes are excellent with nice shadow details that are not overly dark to the point where some details get drowned out. This is thanks to really deep black levels, enabled by the panel’s contrast ratio of about 5500:1 which means it can produce blacks that are 5500 times darker than the brightest white. This can be pushed even further to over 6500 with local dimming. The colors are lifelike and accurate even without any calibration by the user. They will look really vibrant even in bright scenes because of the panel’s high peak brightness levels of ~500 nits for SDR & ~550 nits for HDR. Even in a decently lit environment, the X900E’s picture quality can still hold up as the panel is great at handling reflections and it can get bright enough to fight off glare. See More
The X900E has a narrow viewing angle that makes it unsuitable for group watching. Its picture quality gets worse when viewed from off-center angles. At ≥20° away from the center, the blacks start degrading into greys and colors will start looking dull. Brightness levels start decreasing at ≥50° away from the center. See More
On top of the excellent picture quality, the X900E has everything essential to an immersive HDR experience: decent local dimming, great coverage of HDR colors, and high HDR peak brightness level. Its excellent black levels are further improved with local dimming, which can make parts of the screen darker when the image calls for it. This results in an increase in overall picture quality with black levels becoming much deeper, so highlights will stand out further. The panel can reproduce the wide range of colors required for true HDR playback because of its wide color gamut, which covers ~65% of the standard colors required for HDR according to the Rec. 2020 color space. This is considered great for reproducing HDR details, and it can display these colors accurately at different brightness levels. Along with the the high peak brightness level of ~550 nits, HDR scenes will look stunning and you'll be able to see HDR details really pop. See More
Even in a decently lit room, the X900E's picture quality will remain more or less the same as in a dark room. The colors will still look vibrant because the panel is bright enough to fight off glare. It has peak brightness levels of ~500 nits for SDR & ~550 nits for HDR, and reflections are also significantly reduced by the panel's semi-gloss finish. See More
Apart from being an excellent TV for movies, the X900E is a decent choice for gaming and sports thanks to its decent input lag, low motion blur, great screen uniformity, and a 120 Hz native refresh rate that makes images look smoother. The input lag of ~35ms is sufficient for most gamers, apart from competitive ones, to stay in sync with what's on the screen. The low motion blur of ~11ms and a refresh rate of 120 Hz ensures that everything will look smooth - fast-moving objects won't leave any trails on the screen. It’s also viable for watching sports because the panel also has no issues with displaying large, same-color objects on screen, like football fields. See More
The X900E can display fast-paced or rapidly-moving objects very well without any trails behind it. The panel only requires ~11ms to fully change the pixels color, which eliminates virtually all motion blur. It also has a native refresh rate of 120Hz that makes images look smoother. See More
On top of its excellent picture quality, the P607 has everything essential to a great HDR experience: local dimming, wide color gamut, and fairly high peak brightness level. Highlights will really stand out as the deep black levels are further improved with local dimming. It can make parts of the screen darker when the image calls for it, resulting in a fairly huge boost in picture quality as the black levels become deeper. The wide color gamut enables the panel to reproduce the full range of colors required for true HDR playback. The screen can get sufficiently bright at a peak level of ~500 nits to light those colors up and make HDR details really pop. See More
The color uniformity of the P607 is quite poor, and the viewing angle is narrow. When displaying large same-color objects, such as football or hockey fields, certain areas of the screen will look darker than the others, resulting in uneven colors. This becomes worse when paired with the bad viewing angles that makes the picture quality deteriorate even further, and also makes it unsuitable for watching sports with a group because the picture quality won’t be consistent to all viewers.

At $650, it's hard to find a better deal for a 55-inch 4K TV that can also handle HDR content reasonably well. Compared to its direct competitors, its picture quality is more or less similar to them. Although the HDR performance is just a tad below them, it's still great, especially for the price. It's also more versatile because it has better features for gaming - the input lag of ~15ms is among the lowest in 4K TVs on the market, and it has a motion blur of ~12ms that stacks up to more expensive options. The screen size is large for the price when compared to TVs in this price bracket, such as the Sony X900E which costs ≥$250 more for the 49" model. See More
The P607 has poor viewing angles that makes it unsuitable for group watching. Its picture quality gets progressively worse when viewed further away from the center of the screen. At just ~10° away from the center, the blacks start degrading into grays, and colors will start looking dull at beyond ≥20° from the center. See More
The P607 is excellent at reproducing colors accurately out of the box. Even without calibration, the colors are spot-on. They're very close to what the source signal demands, and any inaccuracies are generally considered imperceptible to most end users. The overall average difference between the source signal and the panel's reproduction of the color is measured in Delta-E, where lower means better accuracy. The P607 has a Delta-E of below 2.0, and anything below 3.0 is generally considered accurate for most end users. See More
In a decently-lit environment, the P607's colors won't look dull thanks to the panel's high peak brightness levels and decent handling of reflections. It's bright enough to fight off glare with peak brightness levels of ~500 nits for both SDR & HDR, and the intensity of reflections are also reduced by panel's semi-gloss finish. See More
The P607 has low input lag and barely noticeable motion blur, making for a responsive and fluid gameplay experience. The input lag is barely noticeable at ~15ms for both SDR & HDR inputs, and the panel only requires ~12ms to fully change the pixels color, resulting in fast-moving objects not leaving any trails on the screen, eliminating virtually all motion blur. See More
The P607 runs on the Roku TV smart platform, touted for its simple, straightforward, and lag-free UI. It’s easy for anyone to grasp how navigation works, thanks to its two-column design with the menu on the left and options on the right. There’s also no noticeable lag during navigation or menu selection. See More
The P607 looks true-to-life with lots of details. There’s a great depth to pictures and you’ll be able to see everything stand out. Dark scenes are great and you won't miss out on any details, even in shadows. The panel has a contrast ratio of about 6500:1, which means it can produce blacks that are 6500 times darker than the brightest white. This can be pushed even further to over 7000 with local dimming. The colors are lifelike and accurate even without any calibration by the user. They will look really vibrant even in bright scenes because of the panel’s high peak brightness levels of ~500 nits for SDR & ~550 nits for HDR. Even in a decently-lit environment, the P607’s picture quality can still hold up - the panel is great at handling reflections and it can get bright enough to fight off glare. See More
Amazing picture quality with the HDR10+ Samsung coded firmware across a Dynamically Lit LED Full Array Backlighting. Makes colors really pop and blacks look perfect in a dark room. The screen doesn’t reflect light like many others in this category. You’ll be happy in a well lit room or a pitch black room. The Q7 & Q9 use Samsung’s proprietary single lined fiber optic cable connect hub where all your devices connect to the television. It’s a great feature if you have multiple HDMI connected devices because they can all be hidden away. The Q9 is still too expensive and the Q7 doesn’t have Full Array Backlighting so it was worth ignoring this to get an incredible HDR10+ TV. See More
The Samsung Q8FN offers exceptional overall picture quality while dealing with both dark and bright scenes. Only a couple of high-end LED TVs can match that performance. This TV can produce beautiful images with bright and vivid colors, inky shadows and some realistic-looking mid-tones. See More
Beautiful Television Well made, brilliant pictures. 4K UHD HDR videos look incredible! See More
The Sony X900F does an excellent job of reproducing smooth and fluid motion thanks to its advanced flickering capabilities. The panel can flicker at the rate of 720 Hz which can eliminate motion blur. Only a few panels in this price range can flash that fast, which is good, as the majority of viewers will not notice such fast flickering. Additionally, unlike the overwhelming majority of TVs present in this price range, the X900F can perform local flickering which ensures that the flickering doesn't take its toll on the overall brightness. Worth noting that the regular flickering of an LED panel reduces its brightness by about a half which can de-saturate some highlights and degrade the image. See More
The overall picture quality of the Sony X900F is on par with what the best, high-end TVs in its price range offer. The X900F offers excellent performance when it comes to both bright and dark scenes thanks to its ability to recreate bright and vivid colors as well as some deep blacks. See More
