Hmm, not so sure. When you see a review like David K's review of the 900B, you sit back and wonder...and again, this is a guy who has never been a fan of LED and certainly not a fan of 4K. He distinctly said that in some dark scenes the Sony actually had better blacks than his ZT60. Pretty bold statement. He gave the 'performance' of the Sony a '9'.
So if that's the case, is there really such an utterly huge difference between the blacks on the Sony and those of OLED? Yes, I know OLED gets absolute black for all intents & purposes, but for practical purposes, from what I read in his review, I'm not so sure I'd use the word 'smokes'.
Now let's factor in freedom from IR, burn-in, 4K content that doesn't exist for LG, etc. and you have more selling points for the Sony. Yes, you could argue the uniformity is better on the OLED, but how much better? I see owners of OLED complaining about gray uniformity and I read in David's review that uniformity of the Sony was not an issue...not perfect, but not a major issue.
So again, 'smokes'? Not so sure.
All I'm saying is that when everything is factored in (as it should be with a purchase like this), it's not quite so clear cut as some may think...and this from someone who has the 77" OLED on his short list.
