It's all in Euro's, but you can figure it out
Thanks. That's shocking to me. I was convinced it would be closer to $20K. I guess it was much more difficult to produce then they initially thought. Hopefully the 940D's slim array is equal to last years. If this is the case it will be my next TV.

50,000 euro = $55,000 american.

Sounds like a tv that LG isnt going to mass produce and really doesnt want to manufacture or even sell them,but if you got 50 grand, theyll make one especially for you!

I am stoked about it as well but the "slim array" worries me a bit. I hope the fact that it's closer to the screen won't cause the side effects it usually does.

The new slim backlight drive is only available on the 930D, the 940D is FALD

Sony says it is 36.7 mm from the wall with the special Sony wall mount bracket.

One thing to note - according to the UK site, the 930D will get a DECREASE in MotionFlow to 1000 - from the present 930C of 1200 (1440 U.S.), the 940D stays the same at 1200/1440 U.S.

OK then .......it's only the 75" that's fatter

Could be if like I said maybe the Sony wall bracket uses the skinny part of the TV above the fatter bottom part of the TV or the sides of the fat part to attach itself to the TV .

OTOH it woulden't be the first time a Sony product website or ad was TOTALY wrong either

I am fairly sure Sony specifically stated that the 940D uses a "Slim Full Array" which indicates to me that they moved the LEDs closer to the screen to improve the form factor. This is what troubles me. I'm sure it's all good. What could go wrong?

Slim array listed for the 930D on the UK site, FALD listed for 940D. Only mention of of new backlight was for the 930D, not the 940D

I ordered the x940c from Best buy and will get it delivered next week. I got a good deal with apple pay - that brought the price to $4600. At this price - should I keep the x940c or wait for the x940d which may cost a lot more whenever it debuts. Or should I be waiting for something else entirely?

Its going into my media room, so I'm not sure it needs to be thin as a painting.

It is the ''slim'' thing that causes confusion.
I wrote it down in post 193
Quote:
As i understand it the X940D has a slim full array direct backlit LED and the X930D features Slim Backlight Drive technology, which uses a unique grid array local dimming backlighting structure to distribute the backlight source more precisely to each specific zone of the screen while maintaining a slim display.

At this price you got an excellent deal. I doubt the 940D will be sod below 7K during the first few months.

You got a great price and I sincerely doubt the performance delta between the 940c and 940d will be worth the likely premium you'll pay.

Thanks for the advice. I think I will stick with the x940c for now.
I think 7k is realistically about where the 940d will debut also.

How did you get that price. I like the speakers and want the 940c at a discount price. I currently have the 65x 900b that I bought from Chris at Cleveland tv. Thanks

So looking at these specs the 940d is 8bit plus FRC. So not a true 10 bit panel. If it was a real 10 bit panel/ processing it would be 10 bit with FRC. 8bit with 2 bits for FRC ...hmm...interesting

I thought HDR required a true 10 bit panel - and not an 8 bit panel with Hi FRC?

And why would they lower the MotionFlow on the 930D from the 1200 (1440) of the C series?

Im not sure if this chart is hand made made or from sony, but im assuming the 8bit is an error.

Also ,this chart is european. They use different motion #s .

All current 10 bit panels are like last year - 8 bit + Hi FRC. Applies to high-end models, but not confirmed.

Sad to see they are active and not passive 3D. Im assuming they are VA and not IPS since they are Sonys high end panels for the year right?

Best Buy had the tv for 6000 as it currently does. I used Apple Pay with discover that gave an extra 10% cashback and have double cashback through a new card promo. It worked out to 22% off. I factored in a bit of bestbuy rewards totaling $150. All of this expired December 31st so I won't get any such deal in 2016 when the new tvs come out.

I've waited too long, the 940D is coming to my living room. If it's an 8 bit panel, bummer but oh well.

So glad the useless ears are gone. I'm pumped to match this up with my def tech mythos ten and sts towers!
