I finally made it in to Best Buy over the weekend.... The Mgr and Assistant Sales Mgr... were both very professional and consumer friendly... (The Mgr was quite aware of an ongoing issue with my 929 which was replaced by the 950 model back in 2012 )...even though my service contract covered up to $2400... They went ahead and gave me $2,699 credit, the amount of my original 12/11 purchase!!.. I looked at the LG EF 9500 and several others on the wall... detail and depth of black was outstanding with the OLED...I then went with the Mrs. into the Magnolia showroom and we reviewed the Sony XBR 900C 65" version.. It looked great! great color much flashier in my estimation than what the LG can reproduce. Side by side it probably won't have the same knockout effect as the LG with the black level but overall it was a superb looking panel. The Big drawback of course is with the light bleed at the edge of the panels on this model. The Sales Mgr said they were aware of that and said that they that had stop selling those until Sony had resolved the issue. Anyways since they are benig quite liberal and said try out a set and see if you like it if not we will try another set or model!... So I was able to get the 65 inch XBR 900C on sale for $2,799... and Geek Squad will come out and uninstall my 950 and install this model.... Good or bad omen? delivery is set for 11/13 ...Friday the 13th!! Stay tuned!!!

Hi guys, been awhile since I've been in here, just been enjoying such a great TV without issues, 65XBRHX950!!! So glad I ditched those Sammies I kept having issues with. My question. The more 4K rolls out the more I am being pulled in that direction. I think the best 4K Sony has to be the 950 as well that also boast full array. With that said, I did not remember if my 950 full array was upgradable to 4K content? I kind of remember that topic awhile back. I would hate to have to spring another $4-5,000 just for 4K even though the clearity is amazing. Yes I also know that until 4K content is more readily available the upscaled is just so-So! Thanks

No, it cannot be upgraded for 4K.

Unfortunately, wishful thinking.

Hey, one can HOPE! Just trying not to have to spring another $4000 for another TV!!! As it is my wife thinks I'm nuts! But when she talks to others about OUR TV you see as Paul Harvey use to say, THE REST OF THE STORY!! But with my 65"XBR950 and the lack of true UHD content I think I will stand pat for a little longer!
