Sure if the 55EC9300 was flat, didn't have aggressive dimming and a tighter pixel structure. The contrast ratio was awesome on the one I had, but not enough to overcome the flaws.

Excuse me? You're telling me because I've owned the Samsung 55/65 JS8500 and Sony 65/75 X850C plus my past history on here I don't have any credibility?

I'm sorry the entry level customer...

Direct lit sets don't have the brighter sides like that. It's a characteristic of edge lit displays. The 55 and 65" edge lit JS8500 Samsung sets do the same thing. I had them for a brief period. Not...

The 65" is also edge lit and the 75" is direct lit. That's from first hand knowledge as I had a 65X850C before the 75" I have now. The 65" has the edge bleed the 75" does not.

I briefly owned the 55 and 65" JS8500 and it does the same thing. Prepare to be disappointed.

I setup the 75X850C I negotiated as a replacement for my 55HX950 that developed horizontal black lines.

I auditioned the 65JS8500 and 65X850C as replacements and like them both. When I found out I...

Tonight broadcast looks like crap via XFINITY in the Baltimore, MD market. It's a pixilated mess.

I had the 65JS8500 before the 65X850C and its a great set. I picked up the X850C because at the time it was significantly cheaper. I think the price spread is only $400 now and it's worth the extra...

I'm still very happy with the picture as a whole. Not as uniform as my old 55HX950, but still very good. I was going to say I thought this set was a better value than the Samsung JS8500 series I...

This set certainly isn't "washed out" in Game mode. In fact with a little calibration it has a great picture in game mode. I liked the JS8500 a lot for gaming when I had it for a few weeks.

I noticed it immediately when the left and right edge of the picture at times can be brighter just like the 65JS8500 I had which is also edge lit. Direct lit sets shouldn't do that.

That's because it's not Direct lit. See my post above. It wouldn't make a lot of sense for the 55" to be Edge and the rest of the family not. Clearly from first hand results the 65" is also edge lit...

It's not Direct Lit and is a mistake on the Sony product description. The display acts like a Edge lit set as described in the attached video.

Welcome to Edge lit displays. The 65JS8500 I had did the same thing as does the 65X850C I have now. It's always going to be that way with edge lit under certain conditions.

I'm interested as well. At least all the major retailers are selling it for MSRP at the moment. I'm assuming that's to move remaining X850B stock before a price drop.
