Sony is using the X950b sets in their own comparisons with cnet against the Sammy I've been talking about. This is why I have said when you say the x900a beats the sammy in every way it's delusional. Even Sony is using a better set to beat it.
I also think the x900b is better. Just because of motion. But not overall picture.
Yes I prefer not to have the curve. But I also don't care.
I still am getting the x900b. But I just think you speak of things you don't know.
My yeah sure was just that.
I can't tell you how discouraging it is to come visit my thread (Yes, I own an XBR-65900A, this is my place to discuss and share) and continue hearing pointless he said/she said, the "B" does this, the 950 supposedly that, what about Panny, Samsung pointless banter.... I COULD CARE LESS, as could everyone else (technically I can't speak for everyone else, I know) that owns an "A" If I wanted to read about comparisons between models other than my own and discuss them, would it not behoove me to go the the said model/manufacturer threads and discuss them there? How about the "General" discussion thread? Again, people here bought their XBR-X900A's for a reason, THEY LOVE THE PQ, THE AUDIO, THE CURRENT PRICE POINT, THE SET AS A WHOLE!!! Why is it necessary for people who don't even own one to continually detract from the purpose of this thread by comparing it to other model's? Here's a clue, this set has the best picture (in my eye's) of any set I've ever owned, the 4K PQ even that of my Kuro...I could have returned the A for a B model, no questions asked, but did not... Why?, because I love my 900A for other reasons that are my own, not monetarily driven, thus not debatable as everyone is different and I shouldn't have to defend what I perceive as the "right" choice for me ....You'll find I have not one post in the 900B thread, why? again I don't own one....So I'm still vexed as to why it's necessary for people to jump in from time to time about other models (particularly the "B") ?? If I'm looking for advice and actively shopping so be it, ask away about the 900A..but if I'm here just to chime in about how my model "X" does this and model "Y" does not, you're just cluttering up the 900A's OWNERS thread. That's my $0.02, carry on... lol
This isn't directed specifically at you MrOrange, just quoted you.....
