That sucks! I guess I got lucky - my 850a is extremely good once I tweaked it but I'd return mine too if I couldn't fix all that like you. I guess it is luck of the draw. My friends who bought...

I admit, I'm in a damned if you do and damned if you don't situation.


I really want a bigger TV. I can't justify a $20,000 77 OLED or 85" Sony.

Do you REALLY believe that? I find it hard to believe that anyone who actually is on avsforum thinks that. It would be like someone on Anandtech saying an onboard video is just as good as a high...

I prefer the motion on Sony 2014 models vs. the Samsung 2014 models. I have not seen the 2015 models so things may have changed. I hate curves on TVs even more than I hate big speakers on TVs.

Hard to know - unless you take the Sony sales package as true. They claim the X1 processor helps with motion, upscaling, color and foot fungus. Not sure if it is true but if it is true, it might...

Congrats! I have an older Sony 850a and I still love the picture but like you, I would like a much bigger TV. There just don't seem to be that many big, high quality 4K TVs to choose from. ...

Great idea for a thread. Hopefully they'll start posting tech specs like weight, dimensions and native refresh rate as those are some of the additional items I often gather when searching for sets.

They didn't show a new 85" at CES so if they do it will be a mid year release which would mean you wouldn't see it until about November. I would be interested in one if they do but they'd have to...
