Thanks for this thread first off.
I'm a big gamer, the reason why I'm going with Sony is the industry leading low display lag inherent in the 850/950 models.
Currently at BestBuy, there is ofcourse the 65" 950b that's taking a thrashing on this thread.
Then there's the KDL60W840B. Would that be a step down from the 950b?
Cnet says it has "very good picture quality with deep black levels" despite it not having the trilluminous display.
"The W850B delivered a satisfyingly deep shade of black, competing well against the best TVs in our lineup and handily outdoing the less-expensive Sharp, Vizio, and Sony R520A. During the darkest sequences of "Gravity," for example Chapter 2 (16:25) when Ryan Stone is tumbling through deep space, the letterbox bars and black of the void were darker than that of any TV in our lineup, with the exception of the Sony W900A and Samsung F8000--and it was very close to those two."
Woops, looks like the 60w840 has a higher input lag....so it's either the 950 or hunting down an older model....ugh.
