Thumbs up Sony 2018 new TVs X900F Back-lit LED and A8F OLED

Just put up all of the .pdf technical spec sheets on Sony's new 2018 TVs.

The X900F series is upgraded with Sony's flagship X1 Extreme processor that has Dolby Vision capability, better local dimming and a new higher luminance panel. The 2018 X900F series will be available late February in 49", 55", 65", 75" an d85" screen sizes.

Sony's 2018 OLED is the A8F series and comes in 55" and 65". Availability is scheduled for late March/early April.

Here's the link to the pdf spec sheets, pictures and more information on Sony's 2018 TV line-up.

Hi Robert - am I missing the brightness ratings?
If I were looking at a 65 inch, either the XBR-65X900F or XBR-65A8F I see no cd/m(2) or Nit rating on your site or in the PDF docs.
Nowadays it's nice to see those ratings, if even just for a comparison of other brands and models.

Sony has not officially published peak luminance. I'll be measuring that along with several other critical measurements when we calibrate them and I'll list what we find.

Sony did tell me the 2018 900F and A8F will be slightly brighter than the 2017 series.

Thanks.

Not publishing the peak luminance is a bit concerning. I know that ultimately and ideally, tv/display shopping should include a visit to the showroom to make the final decision, but....
My past experiences has been to research it on paper and then settle with 1, 2 or 3 choices and ultimately let a showroom make you decide.

I understand and agree, but what we saw at CES were prototypes so mass production units may measure differently. Sony will publish the peak luminance as will I when they launch.

I just updated our website page with more information and more to come in the next weeks.

I have the new 65" Sony X900F and love it!! It is much brighter and colorful than my LG 2017 OLED that got stolen. Keeping the local dimming set to "high" gives the set great blacks. Would love to hear what settings others are using to get the best out of this set. Hoping very soon Sony gives us Dolby Vision so the set will really shine watching 4K UHD discs!

With the standard 10% window we've measured the 65" X900F at 1,000 nits and the 65" A8F is 720 nits. However, when you consider the pure black the A8F produces the perceived brightness and contrast actually looks higher on the A8F.

With all this said in a high ambient room the X900F delivers a brighter image. Hope this helps.
