No, technological limitations meant that movies had to be made/shown a certain way. But as you say, to each their own, and there is no "correct" or "proper" way to view content.

Now that I've lived with my 65X900B for a few months, I'm content, even with the edge-lit and/or uniformity issues. In all candor, the vast majority of the time both are only visible when either (1)...

If only a 65" or larger OLED were actually affordable... but they're not. And I can't make do with a 55" set.

I'd be interested in reading your opinions about that. When I was shopping in October, the 65X900B and the Vizio 70" were on my short list, but I tired of waiting for an actual Vizio set to show up...

Same here. A screen with no signal looks like dog poo, but an actual solid black screen on signal looks fine. Considering the amount of time I spend viewing my set without any signal, well... you get...

You shouldn't have to "settle" on sets that cost this much. I would have the dealer or Sony exchange the unit. Otherwise you will just be pissed off every time you watch it... until you get so mad...

30????

That is WAAAAAAAAY too low for brightness on a 65X900B. The whole thing would be dim at that setting. Dark movies/scenes would be unwatchable. I don't like mine below about 47 at worst.

Viewing angles will not be nearly as good on the X900B, but the image will actually pop more than on the X850B. When I compared the 850B, 900B, and 950B side by side on the same content, the biggest...

What's annoying both with Netflix but especially Prime is that there's no one-click way to pull up 4K titles. On Amazon, searching for "4K" or "Ultra HD" doesn't do it. They sure as heck don't make...

Yes. Seems to be a defect in the set. No solution found thus far. Certain 4K content plays ok, but most does not.

It's an apples and oranges comparison. You're straddling not only model years, but also series. The equivalent to this year's 65X900B would be last year's 65X900A, not 850A.

IMO the contrast and black levels of the 900B and 950B are considerably better than the 850B. If you view the sets side by side on a variety of sources, it jumps out at you. The 850B is a...

I have never experienced frame stuttering like you describe. I will on rare occasionally get the buffering wheel, but even that is very rare.
