Went to BB w/hopes of seeing this and they only had the 850C on display. Looked good with 4K feed but it was truly difficult to see the difference from the 850B below it. So, to my eyes with 4K it was difficult to attest to "X1" improvements.
They had the 75X940C at warehouse but none on display and so the Mag Rep said to me viewing the 85" 950B how would you like to get that $20K PQ for $8K as he insisted that is you'll get only at 75". Fact is that 85" running 4K was easily the best panel in the store when combining that immense size with it's PQ and Blacks. I'm hoping he's right.
Saw the LG OLED 65" and yes it has pure black bars and deep blacks to contrast I also saw several things that were troubling as it played BD Guardians - I saw a lot of black crush in dark scenes and when movement occurred I saw blurring with a lack of sharp details. If black bars gets you off then it's a winner but blurred details or black crush suck and I believe Sony's processing will surpass those shortcomings with better shadow details. Perhaps the OLED will outperform with animation cartoons but I feel Sony wins with Film details. If Sony ever truly tackles OLED they'll have a winner. Samsung JS9500 was also impressive but the 78" price is insane for now.
Looking forward to Carlos postings soon when he gets a healthy delivery.
