I'm new to the forums, but I wanted to take a moment to say sorry for some of the poor experiences a few of you had at Best Buy. I actually work there and I truly wish the experiences alotted to you were better.
Aside from that, as a person who spends a lot of time staring at the Sony 4K TVs, I just wanted to illicit a couple of the things I've noticed with them. The glare on the X850B is much worse than on the higher-end models. I'll also state that off-angle viewing with the X950B allowed me the opportunity to see the local-dimming in live action. I was watching a live-feed of the World Cup and the bright and dark shades of grass on the field caused the local dimming to go crazy. It was fun to watch, but I was curious as to if anyone is having that same thing occur at home. I could only see it straight-on for a moment, but as I said, the off-angle view really showed the shadowing in the screen. What's your feedback on this as a customer? Noticeable?
Does anyone have, or plan to purchase Sony's 4K upscaling blu ray player - the BDPS6200? Can you tell me if you see any advantages from a quality stand point? I have demoed The Desolation of Smaug on an entry level player, but the 4K TVs did an excellent job upscaling it solo.
I am leaning on purchasing the 65X850B or 55X900B. I love the quality of the 900B (less glare, better black level), but I already have tower speakers with a Yamaha A730 receiver. I don't NEED the additional speakers, but you know as well as I do that contrast is the most important aspect of a TV next to resolution. I am torn with indecision and it does not help me that I have to see it for 40 hours a week.
