I've had the 940E for about a month now. I compared it side by side at work with the Z9D, Q9F and 65" A1E, and at home with the Vizio plasma it replaced. It's located in a living room with plenty of daylight, with some ambient over-cabinet/under-counter light at night.
I work with TV streaming and gaming technology so I tend fixate on potential bugs while sitting 20 inches away from a screen in a bright lab, but I also leave all that at work and let the TV disappear when relaxing at home. That's the backstory, so here's the personal opinion of a random guy on the internet:
The A1E has the best picture in controlled conditions, with the smaller pixel size of the smaller screen a plus. But the others are noticeably brighter. And I would trade up for the extra 10" of screen all day long.
The Q has the best industrial design and I love the tiny fiber connection to the input block. But the picture has a "false" aspect to it that's tough to pin down. Probably the overly aggressive color saturation, especially the reds.
The Z9D has a better default picture, but you really need to look hard for it. Mostly small details in complex pictures like rocky river shores, You need to sit pretty close to the screen to pick them out. It's a really thick set too, thick as my 10 year old plasma.
The gloss screen of the 940E makes the colors pop a bit more than the Z9D, but also increases reflections. Fortunately in my case, I wall mount the TV pretty high and angle it back down to the viewing area, which really helps.
The plasma, lol. 10 year old technology, was a relief to donate it to the local church, didn't need another space heater anyway.
I have a decent surround system so no comment on the built-in audio capabilities.
I use a Harmony remote and external source devices, so no comment on the remote or built-in apps.
I left the settings pretty much stock. I knocked the brightness down 2 steps from max to keep the blacks really black. Nothing else has stuck out as an issue yet, but I might play around some more. I tried a few settings from the the rtings review and frankly didn't really care for them. I can see why they want to turn post-processing off for testing purposes but I like them on.
The 940E was the best choice for me in my situation. The picture is amazing with a well mastered disc in our Oppo udp-203, but is still amazing when streaming Netflix or Youtube 4K via our Nvidia Shield. We find ourselves looking for random HDR content just to ooh and ahh. I would buy it again given all the same options.
