The 85" XBR85X850F is a VA panel

“If you like the Sony X900F but have a large seating area, check out the Sony XBR85X850F. The X850F has an IPS panel, which has wider viewing angles, but worse dark room performance.”

Um, there are no 85" IPS panels, only 86" and the Sony is no different as it uses an 85" VA panel just like the previous generation models of this x850 family. In fact you state this in the description up above;

‘Type: LED Sub-Type: IPS (except 85")’

That all said - have you actually reviewed the 85" panel? It would be noteworthy since it is the exception to the x850 lineup, as it is the lone VA panel. Worth a look for the price…
