Our viewing is limited to OTA HD antenna for local channels and, when available, HDR & UHD (“4K”) streaming for everything else (Apple TV & Roku applications for HBO, ESPN, Netflix, etc.). Recent reports suggest we should anticipate a new generation of Apple TV soon will be available to bring HDR 10 and Dolby Vision along with 4K, so our next set must be “future proof” to that extent
We never watch BlueRay discs or other DVD’s or desire a “Home Theater" experience. We do no gaming. We watch some college football and golf but no other sports. The room has the normal lighting found in a family room and the viewing angle is never more than 15 degrees or so off center from a distance of about 10 feet.
Given our budget for this upgrade and recent Sony price reductions, our focus is now on the Sony 940E. My hope is that some of you past and present ZT60 owners could reply to advise what should be our realistic expectations as to picture quality in transitioning from the ZT60 to this modern LCD display?
My thanks in advance for your consideration and comments.[/SIZE]
I have a ZT60 65" a 65" LG OLED e6P and a 75" Sony x900e so I'll share my experiences with you.
1. The 940e will be a light cannon compared to your ZT. Most of my viewing is in the dark and I usually keep the brightness setting low for that viewing on the Sony.
2. The motion handling of an LCD is nowhere near that of a plasma. I adjusted my settings on the 900e to my liking and I'm getting used to the difference. I actually purchased to 900e because I thought it did a better job of motion handling than the 940e.
3. If you come from a plasma you will see blooming and bleeding etc... I think the 940e will do better with this than my 900e. After you set it up and start watching it you'll notice it less and less.
4. With the right settings the tv is extremely colorful and delivers great blacks and contrast. I prefer the DCI color space as apposed to Sonys default color processing.
5. Netflix will look spectacular. I can't say enough about how steaming content looks on the screen.
6. From 10 feet away your experience will be pretty immersive. I just set the 900e up a couple of days ago and I really had to get used to the sheer size at 15 feet.
7. HDR content looks gorgeous on the display. Nice and bright with plenty of punch.
8. I'm spending time with the tv every day and the more I do the more I like it. It is absolutely an adjustment, however I'm glad I replaced our sets with newer tech this year.
