I have the XE93 which I purchased from Currys and was delivered/installated 14th of April. £3,199 including the Sony X800 UHD HDR - Blu Ray player (2017 new model). I was going to buy this X800 Blu Ray Player anyway so happy with the offer.
I saw the XE93 and XE90 side by side at a Sony center in March, playing same content and similar settings. Sony did not have the offer at the time so i decided to wait. It was obvious that the XE93 had the superior picture, very noticably much more detail and brighter.
So far from 25 hours viewing I can share the following from using the TV Native Android Apps (NETFLIX, AMAZON VIDEO, BBC iPLAYER, YOUTUBE, VEVO, VIMEO).
I USED THE TV CALIBRATION SETTINGS MOSTLY BASED ON THE XE90 AVFORUMS YOU TUBE REVIEW. https://youtu.be/FFsRJ3EU8Dg
ALSO CHECKED THE CALIBRATION SETTINGS FROM FLAT PANEL TV:
Four settings used:
(1) SDR Daytime settings in Cinema Home mode.
(2) HDR Daytime settings in Cinema Home mode.
(3) SDR Night settings in Cinema Pro mode.
(4) HDR Night settings in Cinema Home mode.
I PROBABLY WOULD HAVE SHOPPED AROUND FOR A TV THAT IS BETTER ON REFLECTIONS. HOWEVER I AM NOT GOING TO RETURN IT AND WILL PURCAHSE SOME LIGHT MINIMISING WINDOW NET CURTAINS.THERE WILL STILL BE REFLECTION IN A DARK ROOM BASED ON THE LIGHT FROM THE TV ITSELF.
