$4100 I believe
Dear display manufacturers, You need to start including in your marketing material the actual panel refresh rate, not your BS backlight strobe rate.
I have the 75 inch version of this TV and it's fantastic. A major leap in speed of everything from the last model - a neighbor has the previous model, and a lot of functions are laggy, where on mine, things snap fast. First TV I've seen, other than the OLEDs, that can match the blacks of my old plasma TV. It's also bright enough for those daytime games and races without having to black out the windows around it. I don't care for how much stuff they've piled into the TV menus - so much stuff that I was scrolling and scrolling through during setup, that option was at the very, very end. If you get this, search for and try out some of the image tuning recommendations. They're much simpler than you see for most other 4K Ultra HDR TVs out there. With the recommended settings I found online, I was able to get the image pretty close (two tiny tweaks away) from what I then did with my screen profiling gear. One other thing, which I can't say if it's a Sony idiosyncrasy or not, is, if you're upgrading you MAY need to re-hang your wall mount. My wall mount was put up for a 70 inch screen several years back. When I upgraded to a different brand at 70 inches, when the TV was mounted, it was the same distance from my center channel speaker as with the first. When I put the Sony 75 inch up... it's a good five inches HIGHER from the speaker than the last. So check the measurements before you mount...
Is this drop with an authorized retailer?

"Included: Sony 85-inch X900F 4K Ultra HDR Smart TV
  • Sony’s 1-year warranty
" They could not include the warranty if it was not an authorized retailer.
I live in Michigan. Are taxes charged on these purchases?
Sony was a laggard to the Dolby Vision party. Though they now support Dolby Vision, it is a "streamlined" version that Dolby created specifically for Sony (because of a constraint related to processor capability on the Sony TVs). So you need to have components that specifically support the Sony version of Dolby Vision for them to work with these TVs. If this sounds confusing, that's because it is confusing! If you have a recent Sony UHD Blu-ray player it will read the Dolby Vision meta data on the disk and down convert it to the version that the Sony TV supports. Sony needs to get their act together and phase out this one-off variant in 2019. If Dolby Vision is important to you, recognize that you will like have headaches getting a Dolby Vision video feed from external devices. Should not be an issue for apps on the TV though. Good price for an 85" TV of this caliber though.
It wasn't that long ago that the 850D (the last model an 85 inch was available in as there was no 85in 850e) was going for 6-8 grand depending on seller and time of the year. To get a 900F over an 850F for $4500 just goes to show how much pricing has changed over a relatively short period of time. You can thank a combination of OLED and general advancements in LCD tech for this, especially the former. I got in on the LG C7P 65in OLED drop on new years day, and while that has been a GREAT set the room it is in is about 25x25ft so I'm not getting what I could out of 4K resolution unless I sit closer than where my sofa should be placed given the layout of the room. A projector isn't an option because of input lag, and last I checked none of the projectors can do 4:4:4 @ 60fps 4K except one from Sony that is about $50,000 MSRP. This drop, like many items on Massdrop, has me wondering whether the kids really need a college education ;)

That’s what student loans are for...
According to slickdeals, Greentoe has a seller (probably buydig or beach camera) that will accept $4,399 and they are authorized sellers... Just FYI, not sure if that is still the deal...

I am new to Massdrop and frankly, many of these new deal sites. What is Greentoe? Does this Massdrop deal really not ship until Dec 3rd? Why is that? Sorry for my rookie questions. Thanks

It’s greentoe.com. Check it out. They don’t sell directly, but finds an authorized retailer that will either sell at the price you offer or come back with an offer of their own. Typically, from what I’ve read, it’s either beach camera or buydig as the retailers for large TVs. Their $4,399 price was many weeks ago. It’s likely cheaper now. I know they are accepting $3,199 right now on the 85” x850f.
Feels bad to be poor

Yes, but only at 480X640.

You're gonna need something a little more high end to play Fortnite mate
A 65" or 55" woulda been perfect, this is a bit too big and pricey.
B.Hutch@AKRacing
Thanks but I want the X900F
Any chance we'll see the 75" version of this on Massdrop? 85" a bit too big and pricey for me.

Bigger is ALWAYS better.
The 940E is a better set in every way.
But is it OLED?
