This is the 850F. The 900F has the X1 Extreme processor, and is compatible with Dolby Vision. The 850F uses the slower X1 processor, and has HLG, and HDR10 only. The 900E uses a completely different stand( I own the 75" 900E myself), and is a 2017. Also, the 900E was not available in 85" size. While Massdrop prices are excellent, the 900F currently sells for $5000 retail for the 85" version. This price of 3125 is way too cheap for the 900F. MD did the 900F recently, and the 85" was on sale for 4500(retail at the time was 5300). The 85" 850F sells for $4000, so a price drop of 875 is right in line with MD's typical reduction. The 850F is a great TV. True, the 900F is about 15% brighter, and has Dolby Vision capability, as well as being somewhat sharper contrast, with better color spectrum. I spend a lot of time window shopping at electronics stores. A store I visit frequently has a display of 850F, 900F, Samsung Nu8000, and Samsung NU7100 sitting in a 2x2 configuration. Directly comparing all 4 TV's playing the same content simultaneously, the 900F looks the best, but not by that much. However, taken on its own, the 850F has a great picture, and if I wasn't looking at all 4 TVs at once, I'd be hard pressed to notice any real world difference. If you don't care about DV, I'd definitely pick up a 850F. Of course, the best bargain would be the 930E/940E from 2017. It's still rated higher than either the 850F or 900F. It's brighter, and has better contrast, and is also DV capable, using the X1 Extreme chip too. The prices for that have recently dropped. I'm waiting for the 900F 85" version to drop below 3500(which will probably be this time next year, but I'm willing to wait). If I was shopping for a 65 or 75" tho, my pick would be the 930E/940E easily.
Skip this Massdrop if only the 850F. The 900F model is far superior. Almost OLED picture quality with no burn in risk.
I contacted support and they said the 65 is an 850 and the two larger TV's are 900f.

Hey MD! Can you confirm this? If true, you might get more takers.

Model numbers are up now and, provided they are accurate, all sizes are the 850F.
What model is this??
Vsmoove
I have no idea.
If they are being this evasive , why take the chance.
It's kind of important to know the model number of a TV you are you're spending $1.2k+ online....with no returns
Can someone from Massdrop confirm model numbers please?!!
Is this the 850F or the 900F?

It's the 850F
MountainMotor
Dam.. thx
It says 2018 so it has to be F. Not sure about 850 vs 900

I think it’s the 850 since it only has X1 not X1 Extreme.
Monsk
Yep, gotta be 850F. Edge lit and only X1, not X1 Extreme
Is this Really a 3DTV? and if so is it Active or Passive?
Exactly! Based on the specs and price, my guess is that it’s last year’s x900e.
What models are these, why doesn't it State this, or am I missing it. I cant find model numbers anywhere.

This is the updated 2018 900F line. I own last year's 900E, and love it.

No this is not a 900F, I own a 75" version and the stands are not this style, the back is also a bit different. It looks to be an 850F
