Sony X900H Best TV under $1000?

I have the Sony X900h TV to review, and I have a few of it’s friends the TCL R635 Mini LED, the Vizio OLED H1 and hisense h9g…. all up on the wall to compare, talk about HDR movies, next gen gaming and give out that best mid tier TV of 2020 award..

I’ve been thinking about what makes a TV the best mid tier model, things like picture quality, value, features, and how it handles most content. The Sony X900H and Vizio OLED-H1 are both both HDMI 2.1 capable for 4K@120fps along with the TCL R635 that has HDMI 2.0 but along with the previous two has VRR, Game mode or ALLM and they all have eARC. The Hisense H9G which is being substituted by the Samsung Q90T for today, is a great LED TV for picture quality but lacks the features to make it more useful to buyers. No eARC or hdmi 2.1 features, so can you over look that or does it even matter if you are watching Netflix, cable, and other non gaming content?

Each TV has great upside, but some of the downsides of LED TVs is the blooming which is effected by the local dimming zones helping keep the light from bleeding in dark scenes and in dark rooms. But the brightness advantage can be useful in the daytime and bright rooms.
Which TV is the best mid tier of 2020?

    I just got the 65" for 889€ on local sale in Germany. Excited to start using it tomorrow and replacing my 7 year old Samsung.

    Great video man!!

  3. Dave C on October 31, 2021 at 11:36 am

    Thanks! Got a 75" 900H for $1299 at Costco.

    Interesting that you don’t mention sub-titles.
    I ALWAYS run subtitles, and every dark scene in a movie is completely ruined by constant darkening and lightening of the screen, as sub-titles come and go. Should’ve commented on a newer video to get your attention I guess…

  5. alvincruz29 on October 31, 2021 at 11:38 am

    What gadget or method do you recommend to get Hisense H9G connected to a Sony AVR wirelessly? The two units are far apart (30-40 ft) and I am hoping to avoid using a really long HDMI cable for ARC. Thank you.

  6. Junayed Mahmud on October 31, 2021 at 11:39 am

    I want to buy 55 inch X900H , is it value for money?

  7. Elliot F. on October 31, 2021 at 11:42 am

    Great video! should I look into the x900 for around 999 while it’s still around or set my sights onto the Hisense U8G for a bit more money? Is TCL going to upgrade the 6 series this year? Mostly bright viewing, some gaming, lots of streaming…. any thoughts? Thank you much!

  8. William Merrill on October 31, 2021 at 11:42 am

    one thing that everyone forgets about the 900h it has an 3.0
    atsc tuner built in it for OTA 4K broadcasts uncompressed

  9. Stelios Alexandrou on October 31, 2021 at 11:43 am

    Just got my 75 inch X900H. All I can say is wow. big step up from my entry level LG IPS LED. I chose the 75 inch X900H over a 65 inch LG CX. I don’t think the picture quality difference is worth the extra money and the extra size does make my room more cinematic!

  14. M W on October 31, 2021 at 11:50 am

    i get the XH9299 in 65 inch with an 7.1.2 Dolby Atmos system for the Price for an 65CX without Dolby Atmos. Im glad that i take this setup because i see truely minimal difference between Oled an XH90.

  15. I HAVE THE DOCUMENTS on October 31, 2021 at 11:51 am

    Imagine getting this in 65 inch under $1,000. In August of 2021 you can’t even dream of it.

  16. Grimlock on October 31, 2021 at 11:56 am

    My Series X looks better than my PS5.

  17. ecuaking187 Delaghetto on October 31, 2021 at 11:56 am

    Any idea why my lg soundbar 2.0. Doesnt work right using hdmi or optical cable ? Seem to only work fine when its on bluetooth. And even then it turns it self off afterva while when the sound is off.

  18. Samir Sarbast on October 31, 2021 at 11:58 am

    Hi B
    Could you help me to choose between the only two TVs that available in my country for my Playstation 5:
    1. Samsung Q70T
    2. Sony X900H (no VRR)
    thanks in advance

  19. Gary huynh on October 31, 2021 at 12:05 pm

    I’m purchase a TV tomorrow these are used but in good condition. I can get a Sony A8G OLED in 55 inch for $500 this 55 inch has small scratches on screen only barely noticeable when TV is off which I don’t mind . I can also get the Sony X900H in a 65 inch for $600. The X900H is pretty much Brand new No nothing wrong with it. It’s replacing a 65 inch Curve Samsung 7 Series the JU ones. I’m gonna use a PS5 and pretty much watch stream Movies and occasionally Sports. Will I really notice not having HDMI 2.1? I don’t know much about all these Technical Features so any help would be great!!

  20. John Smith on October 31, 2021 at 12:05 pm

    remove the background music!

  21. Ray Janes on October 31, 2021 at 12:06 pm

    I picked up a X900 for equivalent of 800 USD(generally uk prices are 10-15% higher than US about 4month ago. Primarily for gaming cos i lucked out on picking up a new console and hadn’t upgraded to 4k yet. Gotta say im really chuffed with it, my only gripe is that its not blindingly obvious which hdmi port is the 2.1. Great bit of kit for the money.

  22. Eddie Gonzales on October 31, 2021 at 12:07 pm

    Watched this video after the sony rep talked me into buyin it from best buy, honestly im pretty happy with my choice. This video made me feel better, got a 65" for $1000

  23. B B on October 31, 2021 at 12:09 pm

    Do you have endgame in 1.85:1? Or did you do something? It doesn’t look distorted or stretched but it looks full screen…

  24. Robert Brown on October 31, 2021 at 12:10 pm

    The Sony has seemed to gone up in price? Maybe because of popularity?

  25. Game Time on October 31, 2021 at 12:10 pm

    I don’t understand how the H9G is being substituted by Q90T lol. Why not just say you’re comparing tv’s under 1,000$ to Samsung’s most expensive 4k model?

  26. Alex on October 31, 2021 at 12:11 pm

    Dana white is pissed at you, cause of modified UFC belt.

  27. Jiohn Scott on October 31, 2021 at 12:15 pm

  28. Christopher Ashley-Smith on October 31, 2021 at 12:16 pm

    Cant find x900h at Best Buy do they still make em

  31. Matthew Murdoch Alvarado on October 31, 2021 at 12:22 pm

    I brought LG CX OLED 55 Saturday

  32. Joe Dirt on October 31, 2021 at 12:22 pm

    I live in Canada and can buy an 85" X900H for $3000 vs a 65" A80J for $3100. I have a big enough living room to accommodate. What would you buy?

  33. ErwalDeeas on October 31, 2021 at 12:22 pm

    Another great vid man! Given between the choice of a 75" X950H and a 85" X900H, which would you go with? Also, when you go this big of a screen are dead pixels part of the deal or are they still unacceptable? Keep up the great work!

  34. Tony Mak on October 31, 2021 at 12:23 pm

    Sony X900H 65 is 1.1k on B&H

  35. DNA Tru Lyricist on October 31, 2021 at 12:23 pm

    At 9:35 you can see somy definitely has the best color out of all 4 tvs when they show the hulk. Surprisingly good

  36. hari baskar on October 31, 2021 at 12:24 pm

    VA or IPS Panel

  37. kelb89 on October 31, 2021 at 12:25 pm

    This TV is awful. Don’t make the mistake I made.

  38. B The Installer on October 31, 2021 at 12:25 pm

    These TVs are great for the price. But there are better if desired. See OLED vs. QLED here.

  39. Jan solo on October 31, 2021 at 12:25 pm

    Heads up sony has none of the hdmi 2.1 features. Your misinforming people. Tcl has all the features minus the 2.1hdmi. sony has not released the update for what they have been stating in their product.

  40. Raz 02 on October 31, 2021 at 12:25 pm

    Which is better for the same price
    Lg oled55bx rlb or sony kd55xh9096br

  42. Justin Wolf on October 31, 2021 at 12:26 pm

    @B The Installer I’m looking for a 70" TV recommendation under $1,000. Thoughts on the Vizio M-Series vs. Vizio V-Series vs. Samsung TU7000, vs. LG Trumotion Ultra 4KHD vs something else? Thanks.

  43. Pleb Failsworth on October 31, 2021 at 12:28 pm

    i bought the x900h and really like it. especially after turning off the motion settings. they gave movies a weird soap opera effect.

  44. joe smith on October 31, 2021 at 12:28 pm


  45. Eduardo Alvarado on October 31, 2021 at 12:29 pm

    Will a samsung soundbar work with this Sony tv?

  46. Derek D on October 31, 2021 at 12:30 pm

    Here we are in april 21 and H9G still out of stock. I ordered the X900H through a connection of mine for $925 CAD ($735 USD) and was elated to see that of the 4 you had mounted, I preferred the image of the one that happened to be the X900H. I also found it was more detailed then the other in certain scenes too. It is replacing an 8+ year old samsung.

  47. Chris Watson on October 31, 2021 at 12:32 pm

    I don’t understand how u didn’t use the Q80t as it was too expensive so u decided to use the q90t instead? 🤔😂

  48. pickle eggs on October 31, 2021 at 12:33 pm

    that blooming is killing it.i have a cheap led tv and the black bars look like wot i get on my cheap tv,maybe for movies get oled and gaming get these mini led tvs

  49. Blake Cox on October 31, 2021 at 12:33 pm

    Why as of June 10 is x900h over 1k? Did they have a recent firmware update
