Is the rating of the panel important ? Like it is a 10 bit panel or 12 bit panel ?

Maybe you run into their own promoter so of cuz they
say Sony no good.
Sony is good but remember Android TV only Sony not Samsung.
Samsung is Smarthub, LG is webOS, totally different interface
and features.

Go with Sony no wrong, I myself also using Sony so far no issue.
One very simple reason: higher profit margin, and higher commission.

I bought the X8500D 65" 4K 2 months back and happily hooked up to the Logitech Wireless Touch Keyboard K400r (using 2.4 GHz wireless) ($65).

Thanks. I got the same TV model as yours but the 55 inch one. Read that some wireless keyboards are't compatible with sony TV (maybe that was in the past), but now i will get the logitech one too since it works with yours.

The keyboard was a gift from Sony for my tv purchase. Model is BKB10. No track pad. It cost about $99 in retail which no one will be crazy to pay that

I ever PM Sony on their FB and ask about the compatible wireless keyboard which i can use..They gave me 3 brands after checking..Logitech, Microsoft and one more brand which i've forgotten(Nt cheap but nice)..

I'm using Logitech K400plus for my x8500d

Thanks for the replies

Have another question which has been bugging me. Since i have the x8500d android tv, do i need to get an android tv box in order to get iptv streaming service? Or is it possible to subscribe to those iptv streaming service by just installing the apk file on the sony android tv?

The reason I'm asking is cos I installed other apk files directly on the TV (such as Terrarium TV app) but have a lot of problems with the control cos it's meant for touch screen use on the phone or tablet.

I have installed apk for MKTV, HD Kan(hdkan.com) and a sport channels one, all running well without getting any extra device.

Hi anyone here has the 55W800C model? If so, what's your experience with it?

I'm still deciding between this or the 55X8500D. I'm leaning towards just Full HD TV with 4 HDMI inputs and seems like 55W800C is the last FHD Sony TV model that meets my requirement.

The Android TV is not an issue to me since I have a Nvidia Shield TV for my Android needs.

Any thoughts on the upscaling from standard definition and DVDs? I still have many such sources. I'm sure Blurays are fine and I don't care for 4K video.
