My first choice would have been a 77" C8 OLED but that is priced in the stratosphere. So debating on whether to get this TV or wait a few more years to get a large OLED.
I would be using it mostly to watch sports, movies and the occasional PS4 pro gaming (would also install bias lighting strips). I would hook up an apple TV 4k box to it too.
Black level in the Z9D is good and wondering how it would compared to the plasma. Brightness would be a whole new level of course. Only area where it would be worse is motion as nothing beats plasma in that regard but I think I can live with that.
Appreciate any feedback.
Both of these two members were in a similar situation and have bought a Z9D coming from a Plasma .
totally love his 75" Z9D and has tips for his custom motion settings he uses that he has stated are " Plasma" like . I just put words in "his mouth" but it was something to that order. And
and I has conversed via PM and he is getting use to his new Z9D coming from his plasma . 'schwock' if you send him a PM with your concerns Pro's and Con's I am sure will has very good insight to your 'quarry'
I say 75"Z9D all the way don't wait . But My Plasma was 10 years ago and I live at 8,000 ft elevation and the Plasma ran hot and had a 'Hum' do to elevation. It will take some adjustment for your eye's& brain after staring at a 60" 'Plasma' for 10 years. But I fell confident you will not have buyers remorse once you adjust to the larger TV and its variances . PM
he is a nice person we have exchanged PM's in the past . Good luck .
