I have posted several questions in both the 940 and the 900 owner threads, and have gotten some great responses, but to this point I am still undecided.
Currently I have a Samsung 65 HU8550, with the the evolution kit. Great picture. Seating about 11-12 feet, straight on. Wanting to move the Samsung to another room and hang it, and want a 75" in my "TV Room". Do not game. Watch sports, (football, baseball, basketball, hockey), blu ray, and stream with apple tv, as well as 4k blu ray disc player. Use OTA antenna.
BD player, and reciever, both HDR capable. Reciever will get a software uprade to Dolby Vision.
I have looked at both sets at Best Buy, and both look really good. I like the brightness of the 940. I used a thumb drive with some 4k pictures I took, and while at the store, viewed on both the 940 and 900. Both looked great, but the 940 really popped. BTW, I did the same test on a LGc7 OLED, and man did that look great, but just dont think I want a 65" set, but it sure looked good.
The question/issue I am hung up on is the disconnect between the rtings review of the 940e, specifically the motion. They give it a really poor score. The 900 gets a really good score with motion. Owners of both sets seem to br very happy, and the 940e owners indicate that motion isnt a poblem. Why the disconnect with rtings? I tend to believe the users experiences, vs rtings, but nevertheless, rtings, seems to be the goto place to validate. I typically try to hold on to a set at least 5 years, and am trying to smart with the purchase, like 940 gets a software uprgade to Dolby Vision, the 900 doesnt. I dont know if that will be a big deal or not, but who knows?
So, I struggle with paralyses by analysis
, and wanted to post here to get another perspective to give me another view point.
