It's replacing an 800 series, it's an entry level TV. Those looking for an awesome kick arse TV for $898 probably isn't the consumer they are after. They are looking for budget conscious people willing to give up some features for cheaper pricing.

Im sure its a great tv for people who don't want to spend too much, but also get a great brand name current gen tv. Myself, I am looking the price drop on the 65x90j. If this one had better reviews, then I would have jumped on it, but Ill just have to wait for the x90j.

XJ90 is $1999 now, $200 off. Most likely $1799 like it’s predecessor(X900) soon.

How is this for daytime viewing in a bright room. I am looking for a tv that works in a bright room. With wide viewing angle.

But wasn't the 800 the XBR line up? Sony's KD series tvs are always the entry level budget line

Wow. This is cheaper than the prior generation 800H ever was for 65".

I got the 65" 800H from Costco when it was on sale for $998 at its lowest.

Can't believe this is already down to $100 less.

Sony made every tv an XBR. I don't think they've used the KD series for like 5 years. It's now denoted by number and letter. Ie. J is the 2021 letter. 8 was their midrange in 2015 to 2017, but has become really low. And to be honest, just like Samsung, a lot of Sony tv's have some things that are progressively worse with each year iteration unless it is a flagship. Sure certain things improve such as internals like the better processors trickling down. But there was a point where the 800 series used VA panels and was very high end. Now I don't even think there is much difference bettn the 7 to 8, and possibly even 9. I still like Sony televisions though. Reality is, it's race to the bottom for non-OLED especially with Hisense and TCL doing to Samsung and LG and Sony what Samsung and LG did to Toshiba and Panasonic and Hitachi and Sony in the early 2000's.

There are better TVs in this price range like the TCL 5 series so mostly you are paying for a Sony.

I agree. Very little improvements in the entry level market and too much cost savings tweaks for manufacturing a cheaper TV.

Do they have a X85j like they did for the 800/850/900 series? That could have some improvements for not much more money. All depends what you are looking for.

They do have it... what a jump in price. Might be a brand new model though...

You can get better features for less with TCL or Hisense. Both have 65" QLED VA panels with local dimming for lower $$$ vs this IPS edge lit panel with no local dimming. Just paying for the Sony name here.

I have the X800E. It’s decent for daytime viewing in a bright room, with wide viewing angles, since it’s IPS. That’s what I bought it for. I mean it’s not ultra bright but it’s bright enough, and the off axis quality is nice.

It’s not good for night time viewing in a dark room since blacks are not good, also since it’s IPS.

My X900H is significantly brighter with OK blacks, but the viewing angles are very narrow. Off axis viewing on this TV really sucks, which is not a surprise since it’s VA.

Thanks. I am actually replacing a 900E. Which has just died. But it is in my living room. And I mostly watch while cooking. So need visibility at about 45degrees. Not to concerned about movie viewing. The living room is surrounded by huge windows and has no blinds. So far from the ideal movie viewing experience.
