from everything i have read/seen so far, the cadmium based quantum dot technology used in the high end sony panels (HD and UHD in 2013 ) has not been equaled or surpassed for quality in color reproduction. there have however been significant improvement in the brightness levels and contrast, but since almost no video source material (bluray or OTA) uses it, its benefit is mostly on paper as a future potential.

unless you have some great urgency to immediately buy something, take your time to make an informed choice once you have done your background reading and comparisons. the hunt is always more fun then the kill with AV gadgets, and most of us then have to live for many years with the final choice you make (and with our kdl-w900a's we landed pretty sweetly)

Great reply Jorgens. +++1

Jorgens you are correct. It seems I only scratched the anti-glare coating. The scratch is visible mostly when it's off and I hardly notice it while the TV is on. The PQ still looks fantastic. I won't require any therapy to cope w/ the scratch. [emoji16] Hands down this is my favorite TV I've owned. Not going to upgrade until Sony make a 4K equivalent!

helvetica, if Sony havent made a 4K equivalent to the W9 yet they arent going to and besides I think thats what the XBR X900A was......a 4K W900A except the W9 still scored better then the X900A!!! That being said. My wife and I watched the movie "Lucy" last night and OMG this movie looked stunning on the W9. If you havent watched it yet on your W9 trust me you are going to want to buddy. The movie itself was ok, my wife liked it, but what pulled me in was the PQ and black levels. Stunning on the W9 is all I will say.
