Thanks for the input everyone. Ended up buying the Sony x900h. It's. A great TV and should last me thru this gen.

I have the previous model (X900F) and it's a great tv.  Enjoy.

Can't go wrong with Sony, they are known for good image processors and great overall image quality. Just about the only complaint I have on mine is a semi-sluggish OS. Their pointer remotes are also surprisingly good, I actually use mine a fair deal.



Your room conditions are more important than the specs since few games will be able to take advantage of 120 without other aspects taking a hit. Bright room QLED. Light controlled room or need wide viewing angles OLED BX is in your budget, but a 55inch.

If it's for Series X don't bother with the Sony for now. They had a firmware update to enable 120hz for the PS5 but not for the Xbox, last I heard.

I'd only recommend the Samsung Q80T or the LG CX. No point being cheap when you're already investing this much for a premium product. You should either go for one of those or wait longer. That's my two cents.

So I'll say that VRR and ALLM could be considered more 'hardcore' gaming features (though DF consider VRR to be a killer feature for the Xbox so far, and don't know why PS5 is yet to support it), and I haven't checked if 4K/120hz support has been added for Series X (though I've heard this TV has issues with blurring at 120hz so far). Just hope you didn't buy it expecting to have these features at some point, and if you did, well, you were warned.

For a multimedia TV, X900H is still great for it's price, but considering this thread was titled 'TV for Series X', and all these features are relevant to the Series X, I figured you should know. And especially for anyone else that happens to stumble across this topic.



^ Firmware updates are coming (from Sony twitter) to fix VRR so X900H owners shouldn't need to be worried.

Well very convenient you didn't bother to link which Sony account (I certainly don't see it on the main Sony twitter), but regardless, they've still yet to give any clear information and it's all still just vaguely promised features.

Speculation seems to be that if it does happen, it'll likely only be for PS5, in line with firmware updates so far that have primarily targeted PS5 (which of couse still doesn't support VRR at all yet). However you want to slice it, it's all very deceptive and dishonest.

If you want to spend money and roll the dice based on what we know, that's your business, but no one should be recommending this TV for use with Series X, if you actually care about the features related to gaming. Not with what we know right now.

There :P Also guy with the same source as yours has spoken to Sony Engineers. Look down.

No need to to antagonize. Just saying for people who already bought it won't have to worry. Patches will be rolled out.

Same source and same outcome. Vague promises, no real solid info, mostly likely targeted for PS5. Don't recommend for Series X. Buy at your own risk.



Personally, you cant go wrong with Samsung, They have some great prices and great TVs. QLEDS are amazing. If i were you, get a TV that supports 120hz and Free-sync. Might as well since you have a system that is capable of it.
