Best 2018 alternative to TCL and Vizio
Sony's most affordable entry in the full-array local dimming race can't match the value of those brands, but it does cost less than the Samsung Q8 and offers almost the same level of style and brand cachet.
The Good The Sony XBR-X900F evinces excellent image quality, with deep black levels, accurate color, solid video processing and very good : high dynamic range performance. Its modern, minimalist styling is a cut above budget models. The Android TV operating system beats many competitors with more apps and integrated Google Assistant.
The Bad : More expensive than Vizio and TCL TVs with similar image quality. Smart TV and voice control features can occasionally be slow to respond.
The Bottom Line : It might not be the best value, but the Sony X900F offers an excellent picture, superb style and enough extras to tempt buyers who don't want a bargain brand.
