My rankings for the best available TV displays. I thought this might be helpful for someone that Is pondering what to purchase. I also posted on the 900B site even thou 99% of us read both.
1. Sony 65x950B: This set has the best of what makes a TV's excellent, almost perfect blacks, excellent contrast and superb color and a beautiful design. It's negatives are so few they are the same ones you have with any LED, The positives of this picture out way the negatives by a large margin.
2. LG 55 OLED: Perfect black levels, superb contrast and excellent color. If you want to see what the camera saw when filming you will come closet to this with an OLED. Negatives, non-4K, size, IR or possible BI and longevity is not known. A big advantage with the OLED for me is bright room reflection. When sitting straight on during the day I see very little reflection, the 900B is a mirror no matter what I do which hurts it bright room performance (very specific to my living room)
3. Sony 65X900B: The 65B takes local dimming to a level never achieved before. The black levels are right there with the best plasmas, superb contrast and as with the 950B some of the best Color I have ever seen on any panel. Negative are the banding and in most case it is so minor it's not even an issue. Why it is number three for me black levels rule, while excellent they do not compare to the 950B or OLED.
So why do I rate the 950B higher than the OLED? The OLED has better contrast and black levels while the 950 has better color, size and is 4K. When in the sweet spot of the 950 it's black levels are so good you won't care if you own an OLED.
The only reason I have an LG OLED and not the 950B is price. Not that the 950B is not worth the money, I just could not pay that much for a TV and justify it to myself. I went with the performance leader I could afford and that's the OLED.
