Pics......and do you see banding?
I have only spent about an hour or so with the set, so take it for what you will, but I haven't noticed any significant banding. I am coming over from plasma, so I'm a bit sensitive to it and it's one of the reasons I've stayed away from LCD in the past. I tried pretty hard this morning with the Dubai fireworks 4K demo and I can't notice any. I suspect it is there if you look hard enough though.
I am sorry for the quality of the pictures. Taken in a hurry this morning.
With the wedge shape, it's actually quite thick at the bottom.
Sound quality is excellent. I've decided to get rid of he receiver and speakers I had in this room and just go for the clean look of the TV on the wall. The black version of the wireless subwoofer is backordered for a couple of weeks in my area but the set sounds good enough on its own that I'm not concerned.

I'm honestly not sure what else I could've gone with. I wanted a large fixed panel. Plasma is a non-starter above 60". The OLEDs I looked at are all too small and I'm not convinced the tech is ready for prime time. I needed about 45 degrees of off-axis viewing and the LCD panels from other manufacturers don't seem to do nearly as well. The Samsungs in particular seem to fall apart after about 20 degrees. The larger Sharps are a little better but not much to be honest.
I suspect the 950Bs are better, but in my viewing environment I doubt the differences would be appreciable. The 85" 950B just didn't make sense from a value standpoint in this environment. So it really came down to the 79X900B vs waiting another 6-12 months.
Going to the airport then hopefully I'll get to enjoy the world cup games today.
