abunda_amazon_reviews Let's be clear here, we are reviewing a TV that costs well over $1,000. Yet so many people are not holding it to that standard. Wait until Black Friday. This television does a lot right, but for the money it is not worth it. The X950G has blooming that destroys dark room viewing, unless you dim your tv substantially(Which greatly darkens the image, more than normal, especiallyin cinema mode.), and while the overall picture may be pretty fantastic, it's still not beating TVs from 2017 like the X900E, which this was going to replace. What's worse, is that Sony still forces you to accept Google terms of service, before even allowing you to use the product you just paid out all this money for. I don't know about you but I don't like to be forced into submit before, I'm even able to use the product I just invested $1,299 on. This is basically one of those TVs where, if you don't agree with Google's terms, you simply aren't allowed to use it...not even offline! A Disgusting practice. Now when we look at the Smart features it's pretty cool, you can say things like Google turn on TV, and Google turn off TV, and almost like magic the TV turns on and off. This is really cool. Like James Bond tech cool. That being said, the picture quality has a ways to go. Now to be fair, you can get pretty Inky black levels, when there is high contrast did elements on the screen, or when you dim the backlight DRAMATICALLY. That being said the TV has a problem with glitching out. Every time I try to watch YouTube using the internal application, it would zoom in to nearly 100% of the screen, cropping out the entirety of the picture. This makes watching TV virtually impossible. Now if you don't watch YouTube this isn't a big deal, but if you're like me and you're always on it, this is a deal-breaker. What's even worse, is that you've lost picture modes that you had last year, in addition to losing the ability to customize your cinemotion. This basically means you have less ability to control important aspects of picture quality and motion, leading to a really inconsistent experience. The x900f had all of these features, and is cheaper. So make no mistake you are getting scaled back on big-time. Sony may dress it up in a nice metallic build, wrapped in some nice smart features, but overall this television is a downgrade to increase sony oled sales. The X1 ultimate chip is almost a tease for sony, because the black levels are so bad, you'll wanna upgrade as soon as something with better black levels in the same price point comes out. I find that when using this television, I couldn't help but notice if only the black levels were better this might actually be a television that could be worth my time. Simply put if you're somebody that likes to watch TV in a dark room, at reasonable levels of screen brightness, you're not going to enjoy this thing; If you're somebody that watches TV in a bright living room you're going to have solutely love this thing. That being said the colors are not quite as vibrant as qled from Samsung or Vizio at the moment, so those are better for color. Simply put if you have this kind of money to throw away, on a mediocre tv be my guest, as for Me I'll be looking for another product. This tv comes so close, but yet so far away from what I'm looking for. And the worst part of all, is that it's completely on purpose to push bravia oled. Funny how my 2017 full array looks nothing like this, but magically all the tvs after Sony launched the a1e, their full array line has been getting worse and worse. I'm speaking with my wallet and I'm not going to be keeping this one. In summary, Too many glitches, forcing consumers to comply with Google even offline, downgraded features, lack of high frame-rate support, and a myriad of other problems makes the X950G a barely passable TV. For me though it's completely unpassable, and I would not be buying this one. Best of luck to all of those who end up with this TV.;;Reviewed in the United States on May 24, 2019;;3.0 out of 5 stars;;Barely Passable!;;Quantum TV;;;I’m glad I finally made the leap to 4K since this upgrade is much more noticeable for color and clarity. I picked up the Sony XBR-65X950G at a local store’s warehouse on Friday and got to play with it some over the weekend, but not as much as I wanted to because I spent more time rearranging the space after the new arrival. Colors were vibrant and even the blacks were plenty dark. Viewing angles were good for a single seat I had at around 45°, but the main seats are directly in front and great at 8’. Sitting and laying on the floor, in front of the sofa, was good as well. The location had no windows except at the other end of the L shaped room and below from the loft. Not a fan of torch mode TVs or monitors since I always run them at less than 50% brightness; this thing gets bright. Internal light glare wasn’t an issue due to the finish. The speakers are decent enough to watch regular programming and even light gaming. Yes, really. I only use the surround system when watching movies. Remote is not backlit but no worries since I use my TV provider’s or a universal remote depending on what I’m watching. OTA broadcasts looked good even though there’s only 1080/720 and unfortunately, 480 content still. Comcast has the same resolution content although their box can be set to 4K, but some channels look noticeably better than others. The Panasonic DP-UB820 did a wonderful job at 4K media and upscales BD and even DVD very well. The 4K content from Netflix (additional $5 upgrade) and Amazon were a noticeable improvement too. There’s also some YouTube 4K+ content but nothing I’d watch on a regular basis on a TV besides sampling/showcasing. I looked through some Vudu trailers, but they weren’t offered in 4K although the movie rentals did show availability. I quickly tested an XBoX One S and 360 and the FPS and racing games I tried looked decent enough for a console and didn’t show any issues…I’m a PC gamer. I even fired up an old VHS flick and looks better than I remember. I went with an LED over OLED because of burn-in reality…I could also buy two for the price of one. I’ve seen it in showrooms from Best Buy to boutique AV stores and believe it’s worse than previous generation technologies. I’ve owned rear projection and plasma TVs and tired of reminding others in my household about leaving games, streaming menus, content pausing and even staying on the same channels with fixed logos etc. This is my second Sony TV and very impressed with it. I’ve been a Panasonic and Toshiba TV consumer over many years but unfortunately, they left the U.S. market. An end of an era indeed. This TV is made in Mexico and remote in China. I purchased an LG tuner/DVD player back when HDTVs didn’t have tuners in them and wasn’t overly impressed with it, so no LG for me. I haven’t used the networked functions on this TV and not much of a fan of Google and their tech in the TV. I went through every menu and turned off everything I could, including wireless, before connecting to my wired network. I’m doing my streaming elsewhere. If you’ve been on the 4K fence then this is the series to do it with, but you must have the content to feed it. Now back to enjoying the eye candy.;;Reviewed in the United States on March 4, 2019;;5.0 out of 5 stars;;Great Upgrade from Plasma;;Con Sumer;;;This would have been a better tv but it’s plagued with pixel problems audio is decent picture quality is good I loved the design, but overall I was disappointed I hope this helps some of you out.;;Reviewed in the United States on April 11, 2019;;3.0 out of 5 stars;;Too bad;;JAVIER J VEGA;;;If you intend to cast content from apps on your phone (YouTube TV, Amazon Prime Video, etc.) this is not the TV for you.

Like me, you'll probably go through the trouble of hanging the TV on the wall watching for a few days, throwing out the box and then experiencing the Casting failure. Can't return it without a box, thus it's now time to wait on hold and go through 35 diagnostic steps that aren't going to work (or will only work for a few days) with Sony support staff. Do yourself a favor and run from this one. Update: I've had the TV for nearly 8 weeks now. The casting failures continue. I've gone through every diagnostic, every uninstall/reinstall of the built in Chromecast, and reset the TV according to Sony instructions and Casting still fails about every 2-3 days.

Now when we look at the Smart features it's pretty cool, you can say things like Google turn on TV, and Google turn off TV, and almost like magic the TV turns on and off. This is really cool. Like James Bond tech cool. That being said, the picture quality has a ways to go. Now to be fair, you can get pretty Inky black levels, when there is high contrast did elements on the screen, or when you dim the backlight DRAMATICALLY. That being said the TV has a problem with glitching out. Every time I try to watch YouTube using the internal application, it would zoom in to nearly 100% of the screen, cropping out the entirety of the picture. This makes watching TV virtually impossible. Now if you don't watch YouTube this isn't a big deal, but if you're like me and you're always on it, this is a deal-breaker. What's even worse, is that you've lost picture modes that you had last year, in addition to losing the ability to customize your cinemotion. This basically means you have less ability to control important aspects of picture quality and motion, leading to a really inconsistent experience. The x900f had all of these features, and is cheaper. So make no mistake you are getting scaled back on big-time. Sony may dress it up in a nice metallic build, wrapped in some nice smart features, but overall this television is a downgrade to increase sony oled sales. The X1 ultimate chip is almost a tease for sony, because the black levels are so bad, you'll wanna upgrade as soon as something with better black levels in the same price point comes out. I find that when using this television, I couldn't help but notice if only the black levels were better this might actually be a television that could be worth my time. Simply put if you're somebody that likes to watch TV in a dark room, at reasonable levels of screen brightness, you're not going to enjoy this thing; If you're somebody that watches TV in a bright living room you're going to have solutely love this thing. That being said the colors are not quite as vibrant as qled from Samsung or Vizio at the moment, so those are better for color. Simply put if you have this kind of money to throw away, on a mediocre tv be my guest, as for Me I'll be looking for another product. This tv comes so close, but yet so far away from what I'm looking for. And the worst part of all, is that it's completely on purpose to push bravia oled. Funny how my 2017 full array looks nothing like this, but magically all the tvs after Sony launched the a1e, their full array line has been getting worse and worse. I'm speaking with my wallet and I'm not going to be keeping this one. In summary, Too many glitches, forcing consumers to comply with Google even offline, downgraded features, lack of high frame-rate support, and a myriad of other problems makes the X950G a barely passable TV. For me though it's completely unpassable, and I would not be buying this one. Best of luck to all of those who end up with this TV.

Great Upgrade from Plasma
I’m glad I finally made the leap to 4K since this upgrade is much more noticeable for color and clarity. I picked up the Sony XBR-65X950G at a local store’s warehouse on Friday and got to play with it some over the weekend, but not as much as I wanted to because I spent more time rearranging the space after the new arrival. Colors were vibrant and even the blacks were plenty dark. Viewing angles were good for a single seat I had at around 45°, but the main seats are directly in front and great at 8’. Sitting and laying on the floor, in front of the sofa, was good as well. The location had no windows except at the other end of the L shaped room and below from the loft. Not a fan of torch mode TVs or monitors since I always run them at less than 50% brightness; this thing gets bright. Internal light glare wasn’t an issue due to the finish. The speakers are decent enough to watch regular programming and even light gaming. Yes, really. I only use the surround system when watching movies. Remote is not backlit but no worries since I use my TV provider’s or a universal remote depending on what I’m watching. OTA broadcasts looked good even though there’s only 1080/720 and unfortunately, 480 content still. Comcast has the same resolution content although their box can be set to 4K, but some channels look noticeably better than others. The Panasonic DP-UB820 did a wonderful job at 4K media and upscales BD and even DVD very well. The 4K content from Netflix (additional $5 upgrade) and Amazon were a noticeable improvement too. There’s also some YouTube 4K+ content but nothing I’d watch on a regular basis on a TV besides sampling/showcasing. I looked through some Vudu trailers, but they weren’t offered in 4K although the movie rentals did show availability. I quickly tested an XBoX One S and 360 and the FPS and racing games I tried looked decent enough for a console and didn’t show any issues…I’m a PC gamer. I even fired up an old VHS flick and looks better than I remember. I went with an LED over OLED because of burn-in reality…I could also buy two for the price of one. I’ve seen it in showrooms from Best Buy to boutique AV stores and believe it’s worse than previous generation technologies. I’ve owned rear projection and plasma TVs and tired of reminding others in my household about leaving games, streaming menus, content pausing and even staying on the same channels with fixed logos etc. This is my second Sony TV and very impressed with it. I’ve been a Panasonic and Toshiba TV consumer over many years but unfortunately, they left the U.S. market. An end of an era indeed. This TV is made in Mexico and remote in China. I purchased an LG tuner/DVD player back when HDTVs didn’t have tuners in them and wasn’t overly impressed with it, so no LG for me. I haven’t used the networked functions on this TV and not much of a fan of Google and their tech in the TV. I went through every menu and turned off everything I could, including wireless, before connecting to my wired network. I’m doing my streaming elsewhere. If you’ve been on the 4K fence then this is the series to do it with, but you must have the content to feed it. Now back to enjoying the eye candy.

Don't buy if you intend to Cast
If you intend to cast content from apps on your phone (YouTube TV, Amazon Prime Video, etc.) this is not the TV for you. Casting repeatedly fails. In order to get it going again, you have to clear the Chromecast built-in cache, uninstall updates and/or repeatedly reset the TV only for a few days to go buy and the problem to start-up again. Sony is aware of the issue but hasn't communicated a timeline for a fix. Like me, you'll probably go through the trouble of hanging the TV on the wall watching for a few days, throwing out the box and then experiencing the Casting failure. Can't return it without a box, thus it's now time to wait on hold and go through 35 diagnostic steps that aren't going to work (or will only work for a few days) with Sony support staff. Do yourself a favor and run from this one. Update: I've had the TV for nearly 8 weeks now. The casting failures continue. I've gone through every diagnostic, every uninstall/reinstall of the built in Chromecast, and reset the TV according to Sony instructions and Casting still fails about every 2-3 days. When it does fail, I have to through initial set-up to fix it (yep, every few days). Sony is nowhere to be found. I can't possibly spend any more time in hold or repeating the same steps over and over expecting a different result. It's an 8 week old $1,200 blank wall plaque at this point. Sony doesn't care. Do not buy this TV if you intend to cast.
