hiya Ufo,

i am still learning the basics about calibration, so didnt want to comment on the spectral comparison until i know a bit more of the concepts involved.

in particular, since it is the backlight that determines the overall brightness with lcd screens, how is it possible the peak luminescence of that new JS 2015 samsung series is below a non-HDR QD panel from 2013 ? i suspect the peak hight therefore has some different meaning, yet since it represents a 6500K spectrum it would logically suggests it could be luminescence (and our w900a's are known to have a very vivid red, which would fit). the wideness of the RGB peaks has to do with purity of each color. so the cleaner the peaks the better (and the more precise each peak aligns with the individual R G B frequencies the better)

The cadmium is safely sealed inside the W9 correct? We're all not going to turn into the hulk in a few years, right? [emoji16]

First yes the cadmium is safely sealed inside the glass of the W9 and second I saw the Samsung JS series tv just the other day at my local BB and once again not impressed by 4K or the PQ of the tv. It could have been the way they had it set up I dont know but from what I saw I still would take my W9 over it anyday. Like 2014 sets I dont see any 2015 sets from any of the manufacturers replacing my W9. OLED and HDR look promising but for me its going to be a wait and see thing.

I wanted a 1080p set and was very discouraged by the offerings this year. Not ready to make the OLED plunge. So I emailed my local AV shop regarding the Sony 950B 55". He replied that he had none left BUT he did have a 55" 900A new in the box that was ordered for a customer but never picked up (who subsequently bought a 4K set). I IMMEDIATELY let him know I would take it! And the price was incredible.

Sooo my new 55" 900A is being delivered this Saturday. I cannot wait!!!!!! Soooo excited!!!!!!!

Congrats. You just landed what is still considered to be one of the best HDTV's ever made by Sony and you got a new one at that.

Damn I like scrolling through the 4K threads and seeing people complaining about clouding, banding, flashlighting ect. Did they really think that 4K tv's were not going to have those issues? Theres more to a tv then pixels but some of the 4K fan boys have yet to figure that out. My good o'l W900A is just a 1080p tv that dont suffer from any of those faults and has PQ that can match any 4K tv out there. Pretty darn nice when you hear on some internet sites that the W9 can even match OLED tv's. Thats pretty high praise for a 2013/2014 tv.

Ive been trying to hunt another w900a for months now and yet one just falls from the sky for you. Enjoy it, as there will never be another television like the w900a ever again.
