New 2017 Midrange Sony X900E 49 inch to have FALD yesss!!


Well-known Member
Just seen the specification on best buy in the us and the mid range 49 X900E model will have full array Local dimming yaaaay! I'm so glad I waited as this is the news I was waiting for ! Now I'm wondering how much this model will be ?? The US price is $1499 !

The X900E is an all new segment within Sony’s TV lineup. In addition to the aforementioned 4K X-Reality Pro chip, X1 HDR Pro Remastering and Super Bit Mapping, and Triluminous Display features, the X900E adds X-tended Dynamic Range Pro 5x, which we witnessed increasing contrast substantially over prior-year models. Interestingly, a full-array local dimming (FALD) backlight system, typically a high-end feature, is limited to this series (with the exception of the 75-inch X940E and Z9D). One might think that FALD would offer the best brightness, contrast, and black level control, but Sony says its more advanced, edge-lit X930E/X940E models actually surpass the performance of this series.

Was heavily considering getting the UE49KS7000 but this has put that firmly on hold, I'm so excited for this

From initial reports black levels are not great and lots of blooming, so probably got 4 zones or something.
