What is the Sony XF90/X900F?
At first glance, Sony’s CES 2018 offering seemed a little tame. Aside from its conceptual 10,000-nit 8K TV, its main attractions were an old OLED with a different design, and a single new mid-range series of LCD TV – the XF90 (or X900F in the US).
My initial assumption that this new Sony XF90 range wasn’t particularly exciting proved unfair. Deeper investigation reveals that it’s a substantial upgrade on the previous XE90 series. According to Sony, the XF90s are going to be taking over not just from the XE90s for 2018 – but also the brand’s high-end XE93 and XE94 ranges. No pressure.
