I hope I made the right choice giving up in Sony for this set. Honestly, it hard to judge these sets in store as they were set on torch mode. (Used the HU9000 as reference) The XBR seemed to have better colors due to the Trilumious engine. Shading also seemed better on the XBR, but both pictures were completely blurple if that tells you anything
However, the XBR65X900A's banding, clouding and led edges tinges are irritating. I was a long time Plasma owner and am hyper sensitive to that sort of nonsense.
I have yet to see anyone comment on fully calibrated opinions between these two sets. Once the picture is tamed, is the Sony still noticeably better?
Input lag at 60 (F9000) compared to 40 (XBR900) is also concerning me. Is this something Samsung can remedy via an update? I have read a few places that this recently happened.
Anyways, it on the way now. I hope the pros are better than. The con's with this current trade.
Any comments on this are appreciated.
CNET measured Input Lag on the F9000 at 56.5 in game mode. I play my PS4 and Xbox One all the time and rarely even switch over to game mode simply because of forgetting and never notice. I am not a twitch gamer though but I don't think 16.5ms difference is that big of a deal.
