Not trying to make waves, just stating what i know.
Hey Aaron I know your not trying to make waves but from what I understand Sony was trying to say the HX850 was local dimming and that is not the case and they even corrected themselves on that because local dimming applies only to full array LED to which the HX850 is not. I have the chart in front of me and here's the differences....the only differences between the two tv's:
Motion Clarity: HX850- MotionFlow XR960 HX750- MotionFlow XR480
Glare Reduction: HX850- OptiContrast Panel HX750- Matte Screen Finish Means Less Glare..
Picture Engine: HX850- X Reality Pro HX750- X Reality
Gorilla Glass: HX850-Yes HX750- No
Otherwise both have Dynamic Edge LED Backlight and have nearly identicle features. The big reason why I went with the HX750 was due to the HX850's Gorilla Glass. I have a bright room and the glare would have been distracting plus I saw both tv's sitting side by side at my local BB and at Sears and as far as PQ I noticed no difference between the 2........and I mean none and I feel I am a pretty good judge of tv's, and thats not saying anyone else isnt is but I go with what looks good to me. But what frusterates me is alot of people think the HX850 is local dimming and that just isnt true but thats Sonys fault because they shouldnt have initally made that comment but once they corrected that error it was to late. Also what makes me mad is on some sites reviews claim the HX750 has mid level black levels and I wonder just what kind of settings they have the tv at because the black levels on mine are so black that while watching movies at night when a scene switches to black the room goes totally black and the shadow details are excellent. That being said the HX850 is a great tv...an excellent tv....but it is my belief that the HX750 is right on par with it when it comes to black levels and PQ and in the end thats all that matters to me. Now if you want the extras that I pointed out above then the person should by all means go for it but I feel your only paying more for features that dont make a whole lot of difference in the long run. Both are excellent tv's from Sony and really you cant go wrong with either one.
