On the f8000 the picture begins to loose its image only 2 or 3 seats either way, I did have the panel replaced due to dead pixels and the new panel is a td01, it seems to have the same veiwing as my 1st panel.. I am really happy with both sets. The 75" f8000 gives my living room the immersive attention the large room can handle and the 65" f9000 gives me a little better pic for my cave nights and also the tech for when I pick up the ps4 and xbox1 and more 4k content starts showing up.
As many have said when the 75" 4k sets come out at a smaller price tag than 20000 I will sell the f8000, of course I will loose a little bit but its nice to have a large 75" in a large room.
That may push me to the F9000 over the F8000.
We're going to have the two couples that we hang out with over for the Big Bang Theory one-hour two-episode premiere on September 24. We're all rabid fans. To accommodate everyone, off-axis viewing may be critical.
Quick question--how do compare the blooming, clouding or banding (or the lack of) of the F8000 and the F9000? Forgive me if you have already commented on this.
