I have to decide by Monday. But

I game 70-80% of the time the other times I watch Netflix and movies.

1.) 75” X900E
2.) 75” X940E
3.) 65” z9d
4.) 75” QN75Q8


I like to be immersive and I’m approximately 6-8 feet away from tv.
I use PS4 Pro I typically keep blinds closed sometimes opened 80% closed.
I play games like Horizon, Destiny 2, Overwatch 5-12 hours on an off day.
I have a budget max of $4,200.

The TVs you've listed are all excellent choices. But for an immersive gaming experience sitting that close, hard-core gamers claim nothing beats a 4K curved screen. At 65", there's the Samsung QN65Q8C for $3,300 or for a larger screen, the Samsung UN78KS9500 is still available for $3,800.

I’m curious how they’d compare to the ones I listed above ? I read Sony makes the best LCD/LED’s this year

The Q8C would be most comparable to the 900E, the 940E and Z9D are at a higher level. The 900E has better local dimming and is brighter, but the Q8C has better color volume, is better at dealing with reflections, and has a bit lower input lag. I would rate the Sony 900E better overall, but the Samsung Q8C is a good performer and the curved screen is ideal for immersive gaming when sitting close to the screen as you intend to. I just thought you might give it a look if you haven't checked out a curved screen. I'm normally not a fan, but for your gaming use case, it might be a good fit. But the 75" is over you max price of $4,200 which is why I mentioned the 65" version.

The Sony TVs on your list are all excellent, but the 940E and Z9D do have very long response times which might result faint trails following moving objects. But both do have low input lag, a bit lower than the 900E. A better Sony for gaming, which is not on your list, is the 65" 930E. It is better all around than the 900E, having better local dimming even though it is edge lit, has a brighter display, and has lower input lag and a similar short response time. But 65" is as big as it gets.

Is the UN78KS9500 or q8c a better overall tv for me then? Or the z9d? I want the Best TV because I’m not going to build a custom pc anymore but instead I got the PS4 Pro and then getting a tv to go with it.

I can get the q8c for less from the Cleveland Ohio tv guy (chris).

What is the best 75 in LED tv that supports Dolby Vision and costs less than $3500? I'm having trouble finding anything. I was leaning towards the Sony 900e, but with no DV support, I'm concerned about compatibility with future HDR content

I had to return 3 times before I found one with an acceptable level of backlight bleed

The P75 is available from other dealers as well. However I get your concern. If local returns is that important, the M75 would be the next best option and is available at Costco, and you would be saving a lot of money vs the P75.

The 75in Vizio M75-E1 looks interesting for under 2k with DV support. The overall picture quality is worse than the Sony 900e. It would have been such an easy decision if only the 900e supported DV. I'm not sure how important DV support will be for future content and if it may be better to settle for lower PQ as a trade off for DV support. I've never owned a Vizio tv before either so not sure how reliable they are and how their support is. But is is $1200 less than the 900e and has DV support. Vizio's DV support versus good overall PQ with the 900e, looks like I will have regrets no matter which 75in tv I purchase. I would wait but I really need something within the next few weeks.

Yep, Chris is the one to go with. What's right for you is really all about how you like a curved screen. If Chris can get you a deal, the Samsung UN78KS9800 is the best large curved screen LCD ever made. It's 78" with an very bright FALD VA panel but it shows online selling for $5,000 which is over your budget. It is better than both the edge-lit curved UN78KS9500 or QN65Q8C.

The Sony XBR65Z9D is the best flat panel LCD made, and definitely superior all around to the edge-lit UN78KS9500 or Q8C. But the curved Samsung UN78KS9800 is an FALD set like the Z9D and is also very bright. I'd say that qualitatively, the XBR65Z9D is better than the UN78KS9800, but the size difference for 65" to 78" is huge. It all comes down to curve vs. flat, 65" vs. 78", and price. Again, if you weren't a gamer who would be sitting close to the screen, I would never have recommended a curved TV. So then one of the Sonys would be an easy choice. And I only brought up the 78" sized Samsungs because your original choice list had the 75" Sony 900E and 940E.

Have you ever gone to a showroom and sat 6 to 8 feet from a curved TV? Most stores should have some 65" curved sets on display, either from LG or Samsung you could try out. This is an expensive purchase, and you should do all you can to make the right choice for you. It really doesn't matter what anybody else thinks.

I apologize if I've confused the issue here. I was just thinking outside of the box.

What's your use case? From all the pros and cons you mentioned, it might be best to take a chance on the P75 and at least you won't have any regrets. Worst case is that you'll need to go through some hassle IF you need to exchange the unit.

If you can push your budget, maybe you can get a Sony X940E for a good price at Black Friday which will give you the Sony PQ as well as DV support.

Contact Chris @ Cleveland AV. The 900E is the way to go. DV support is hit and miss when it comes to media. Results are all over the board. Combine that with the fact that the 900E gets brighter and you'll end up with a better overall HDR picture from the 900E, DV or not.

Hey guys...down to two...with the age old question...size vs better quality.

Debating between these two which are about the same price.

-65" Sony 930E
-75" Sony 850E

We sit about 9' away, mixed use with movies being most important. I would say mostly streaming with the intent of building up a UHD Blu-ray collection. Sports and Gaming and TV watching are all prevalent but secondary to movie watching. All seats are pretty straight-on so off axis isn't that important. Complete light controlled room.

Thanks!
Greg
