    Reviewers from cnet have found:
    The X900H measured the best (lowest) input lag of any Sony TV yet, at around 15 milliseconds in Game mode for both 1080p and 4K HDR. In brighter, more natural shots like the snowy mountains and the hot springs, the Sony narrowed the gap, although brightness in highlights and in larger bright areas like clouds and snow lagged the TCL.
    Pros
    • Excellent color accuracy
    • Excellent black levels
    • Good HDR performance
    Cons
    • Not as bright as the TCL 635

    Reviewers from digitaltrends have found:
    The Sony X900H has one of the best picture quality to price ratios you'll find this year. It's not as jaw-droppingly stunning as Sony's A8H OLED, but it delivers a similarly satisfying cinematic experience for a fraction of the price. For gamers seeking immediate gratification, I would suggest looking at the Samsung Q90T.
    Pros
    • Excellent picture quality
    • Good black levels
    • Good color accuracy
    Cons
    • Poor off-angle viewing
    • No VRR

    Reviewers from gizmodo have found:
    Sony's X900H is a fantastic TV with an excellent picture. It's not as good as an OLED, but I thought it handled these deep-black scenarios exceptionally well. Its built-in speakers aren't bad, and Sony makes a big deal about the down-firing speakers.
    Pros
    • Dolby Vision Bright is an absolute joy to watch
    • Excellent picture quality
    • Built-in speakers
    Cons
    • No HDMI 2.1 support
    • Not as good as an OLED

    Reviewers from pcmag have found:
    The Sony X900H is a 4K LED-backlit LCD TV capable of displaying high dynamic range (HDR) content. It can also control a wide variety of smart home devices that work with either Apple HomeKit or Google Assistant. It stands alongside the Samsung HU8000 and Vizio M-Series Quantum lines as the brightest of the three. It's generally balanced and shows solid black levels, but it's quite expensive.
    Pros
    • Sleek design
    • Good black levels
    • Hands-free voice control
    Cons
    • Slightly oversaturated reds
    • Lacks Google Assistant

    Reviewers from t3 have found:
    The KD-75XH9005 has a huge amount of screen, surrounded by minimal bezels of impressive build quality and finish. It has some areas of true picture-making prowess, it sounds better than the bulk of TVs at any price, and it's a most effective upscaler of sub-4K material. If you can live without HDR10+ compatibility and the Apple TV+ app, it's as good a 75-inch TV as this sort of money will currently buy.
    Pros
    • Very good picture quality
    • Very good HDR performance
    • Huge selection of streaming services
    Cons
    • No Dolby Vision or HDR10+ support
    • Android 9.0 interface is fiddly to navigate

    Reviewer score 87% (normalized by Neofiliac)
    Reviewers from techradar have found:
    Sony KD-XH9005 is one of the best 4K TVs on the market. Pictures are crisp and packed with information, but with none of the restlessness of edges, graininess or picture noise that can sometimes accompany this level of insight. Skin-tones and -textures are completely convincing, whether the actor in possession of them is wearing pancake makeup or not. All but the 55-inch model in the XH90 range feature Sony's grand-sounding Acoustic Multi Audio system.
    Pros
    • Impressive 4K/HDR performance
    • Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos support
    Cons
    • No HDR10+ support
    • No HDMI 2.1-standard

    Reviewers from whathifi have found:
    The KD-65XH9005 is equipped with Sony's Acoustic Multi-Audio sound technology in the form of a pair of full-range drivers on the underside of the frame. The aim is to improve audio clarity – something this system achieves. Listening to Deadpool, there's a sense that the audio has a far easier journey on the way to the listener. The effects in the Deadpool freeway crash are delivered at appropriate scale, and when the action freezes and the noise drops, the silence is absolute.
    Pros
    • Gorgeous 4K picture
    • Solid build quality
    • Excellent sound
    Cons
    • No Dolby Vision
